Happy Birthday to me, I'm friggin' seventy, Opening this BTAC, Now makes good sense to me.

Celebrated a long awaited promotion last night.  

Before and after dinner pours of Eagle Rare last night on a very balmy evening here in the SF Bay Area.  I've really been enjoying ER lately.  Lots of flavor and complexity for "only" 90 proof.  You c

I put in a good day, today at the office.  Sold some stuff at good prices.  Bought some stuff at good prices.  And, made some people happy!  So, rewarding myself with some OWA out on the front patio.  
 

Tomorrow may turn to shite, but I’m taking these little wins today and running with them!  ?

Hey, Joe... What's up with that ring of ?bubbles? around the top outer surface of that pour?    I don't recall ever seeing that effect.   Can you enlighten this poor unfortunate?

It’s technical.  It’s one of our little toys...

A sample of OESO given to me by @0895 last September. I like this more than the 1 pour of OBSO I've had, but behind the Q, K, and V yeasts.

Nothing technical here, it's just Joe's bubbly personality transferring to his glass. Either that or he sneezed into it

Last night.

I feel like I’ve seen a lot of Woodinville, relatively, on the forum lately. I had a bottle

a few years ago that I recall was rather young but pretty tasty and promising with some more age... What do you think of it?

I ended up having a several glasses of really good Pinot Noir during and around dinner, so for the bourbon night cap I wanted to keep the volume light and quality high. I cracked one of my two remaining W12s and it was a perfect choice.

Enjoying a pour from WTRB 116.8 transitional label. It is better than the 112.8  proof version of Rare Breed, but not quite as good as the "new bottle " 116.8 Rare Breed. 

 

Cheers

Tonight's pours are from WT Master's Keep BIB 17 year and Decades. Enjoying them both, tasting impressions over in the 'What bottle opened' thread.  Both are great bourbons.  I tip my hat to Eddie Russell - keep up the great work!

I really like it. There really isn’t much you that shows through for me. To me it’s a little Wild Turkey-esque but a little less robust.

I've not had the 90 proof but I had a barrel proof single barrel store pick that was amazing!  Very deep, layered and balanced on the palate.  Not "young" at all.

The barrel proof store picks is where they really shine. They are small enough that the distiller actually does taste all the barrels that go into the single barrel program.

I was trying to decide what to choose for my summer bottle this year (last years was FC103 6 Yr).

You and @Clueby just made it very easy for me.  ?

 

A quick Saturday afternoon  pour before into the freezer it goes!

Some thunderstorms rolled through late this afternoon, but now it’s cleared so I can sit out and enjoy a bourbon and cigar.  Decided to go with an Evan Williams BIB Green Label to start things off.

Love that particular label (pretty good whiskey too!)

 

Enjoyed some OBSO after dinner (thankful the power wasn't out for very long from those same storms!)
