Couple pours yesterday, finally cracked a '15 Booker's (15-06, Noe Secret). It did not disappoint.

Did a 3-bottle comparison of EHT Single Barrel on Saturday (third was a sample from a friend). I think the general consensus was that they are all a little different but still pretty similar, the main takeaway was that even though it's the same proof as the small batch these were all noticeably better, probably should have thrown a pour of that in but it's something I've had a bunch of and am familiar with

I'm biased, but I liked my bottle the best, I thought it had a thicker sugar note

Cool comparison, and interesting they were pretty consistent. Thanks Ben.

I was having a pour from my OWA pick bottle last night and figured I'd do a little taste of the shelfer to go with it. The shelf was all sweet caramel, the pick had a little cinnamon spice to it, tasting side by side really let their differences show

Shelfer would probably be better for casual drinking in large amounts (so smooth and sweet) but the pick was more interesting, made me think a little. The pick takes the overall win but I've been trying to slow down on drinking that one, so the shelfer is what I'm usually grabbing for a Weller fix

Saw this in one of my B&Ms and thought I'd give it a try, mainly because it's bottled here in MS and some of the whiskies used in the blend are distilled here, too. It's got a good amount of rye in the mash bill, which is right up my alley.

Cracked the new Booker's, definitely my favorite of 2020 batches so far. After I let it sit, it got a subtle sweetness on the palate like subdued Juicy Fruit gum. The longer it sat, the longer the finish seemed with a little of the initial heat dialed back a touch.

Nice all around, Greg and Ben!

Greg, I found it really opened up beautifully after about 20 minutes. I drank it neat, but any guests who aren't high proof peeps probably could use a dash of water to tame the heat.

I can’t keep up with all these Booker’s! I still haven’t gotten a bottle of Boston Batch. I need to update my Christmas list with the Pigskin Batch
