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

Sounds like both are good choices. Nice.
