I just cracked a bottle of Order of Merit that's about 40 years old. It's delicious.

My previous comment applies to you as well.

I might have to try this the next time I am in Colorado... or have a friend ship a bottle.

What can I say? I like my bourbon young, like my women. I bet you have been waiting a long time to break that out. What about the people who prefer knob creek, jim beam, and makers?

[quote=KBW;1250699]sorry for the crappy iPhone pic...picked up some Blanton's this afternoon on the way back from the office. Your opinions please about Blanton. I bought a bottle for as a gift to an important client. Price-wise it was around the same as Johnny Walker Black Label (this was in Hong Kong Duty Free). Is it good? My boss suggested that I should have gotten Old Parr 15 yrs old. I was told the Japanese consider Old Parr one rank higher than the other whiskeys.

Blanton's is very good.

Pappy Van Winkle 15 y.o. with water or on the rocks.

Basically it is C2-H5-OH , so what you are tasting is an old barrel.

silly question but asking out of curiosity but what the difference between a peg and finger? I've always heard pegs used as a measure of how much whiskey should be in the glass but reading the forums I've seen people use fingers too. Do you get more/less/equal when ordering a peg and a finger? Does the usage of either terms have any reflection on the person? e.g. one suggest he is a connoisseur, the other for pretenders.

I use ounces. This shows that you know precisely what you are talking about and brook no compromises. ~ H

unless your antibiotics have a specific warning, you're fine.

Just brought a bottle of Elijah Craig 12Yr home.. Going to try it in a second.

Wow, this is interesting... Similar to Woodford, but with more bite. But I do like it more than Eagle Rare 10yr. I think I really like it. Edit: It's manly and smooth at the same time. I actually might like it better than Woodford.
