Yeah, you get about as much character as you would expect from a 40% $40 bottle, definitely nothing impressive from BH in my opinion. I have been preferring higher proof (preferably barrel proof) choices these days as they usually have a lot more flavor.

agreed. for those who like the higher rye mash bill of basil hayden but want more punch, then i'd suggest old grandad bottled-in-bond or really step it up with the OGD114. they are not as refined as BH, but you will know you're drinking whiskey!

Back to Gentleman Jack after a long break. Still a great option.

I have to say I am severely disappointed with JW Blue for the price. It is slightly better than the lower offerings, but definitely does not justify the price IMO.

Last night I had some Pikesville Rye, one of my personal favorites.

We made a conditional offer of employment to a candidate a few days ago. 6 weeks of background, maybe a week OJT, and HOPEFULLY I can rejoin the ranks of the drinking class.

Yeah, I think that exceeds my response time right now.

The maternal family is asking us to go to Oregon this summer for a family reunion.

You need to stop drinking when you hire? Feel like I'm missing something....

Can't drink while on call. Hiring to bring our department to a grand total of 1.5FTE. Care to guess who the Army of One is?

Well, it's IT, which means just sitting there right? So....my guess is....hound of the realm? And you'll become the 0.5 addition?

For me that is four roses single barrel every time. I am not as big of a fan of Bulleit unless I am mixing drinks.

I will probably open up my new Elijah Craig Barrel Proof A119 tonight.

Understand that one...sadly had to terminate an employee for taking an on call while intoxicated. Sad part...he wasn't even the one that was to be on call, he took the call when the other guy didn't answer.

Found a bottle of green spot at Target so got for my BILILs birthday. Didn't think he was going to offer me any so I had a skull-full of Hibiki. THEN he decides to open the green.

I prefer Hibiki
