Bulleit 10 year Bourbon

Lets see. I've checked into 9 beers so far tonight. Good times. This Bulleit 10 year bourbon was an excellent buy for the money. I picked this bottle up at Northwest Liquors here in Rochester. It retails for $49.99 locally. There's a picture attached here. Hopefully that worked. Group consensus: very good. Smooth. Just enough sweet. J-lo brought the 90 Shilling. I'm a sucker for a good scotch ale. Hopefully, I can finish these thoughts tomorrow. I feel a headache coming on tomorrow.

Superaged spirits: How old is too old for whiskey, gin, and chartreuse?- Slate Magazine

I found this article recently and thought I had to share it with everyone. Having attended a few whiskey tastings in my day and drank a few whisk(e)ys aged 30 and over, a lot of this came as no surprise. While it was fun to drink some aged spirits, I can't say that any of them really blew my socks off. The 30 year Canadian Club comes to mind. While it was indeed expensive and it sure was smooth and oaky, that's about it. No wow. Just "Hm, that's what a $200/bottle whisky tastes like."

Younger rye's are tasty. And 16 - 25 seems to be where Scotch gets awesome. Thoughts? What are your experiences?

We might need to take better notes at whiskey club :)
