Bourbon Live Tasting - 1st Quarter 2009

Re: Bourbon Live Tasting - 1st Quarter 2009

Hey guys! If possible, I'd like to get in on this. If you'll have me, I'll see about getting a few bottles of Tuthilltown Distillery's Hudson Valley Baby Bourbon. While technically not a "real" bourbon, its a whiskey made by the first distillery in New York since pre-prohibition. Might be an interesting drink.

This looks to be great and you can leave off the Stagg sample for me as i just got a bottle there. in fact I can send a sample to those in Europe who'd like one.

From the list below, I have enough GTS at home for the US members, and Cathach has mentioned that he can take care of the Euro group with this bottling. I also have a bottle of EC 12 at home for dispersing. I'm ok with late Feb, as the month looks pretty wide open for me right now.

Eagle Rare 10yo
Elijah Craig 12yo
George T Stagg
Ridgemont Reserve 1792
Wild Turkey Rare Breed

I should have held off too :oops: Only one shot of GTS left, and no Elijah Craig now. Well, I said I didn't like to wait. But I have enough Eagle Rare 10 and Wild Turkey Rare Breed to send out samples.

Yes, I know it's late, apologies - I would like to join the party. I don't have any bourbon to share around but would be happy to buy a bourbon for sharing or to contribute towards the cost or offer some other whiskies in exchange.

I have a box going out to Willie for dispersing some samples to others in the UK. Included will be the GTS 2008 and Elijah Craig 12yo. Now I just need to figure out how many samples of each to send him. I'll make sure to include you DFI, it's never too late! :D :D

I am really looking forward to this, have we got a date in mind yet? I would like to be included in the samples of the GTS that you are sending to Willie Ryguy?

Would anyone be interested in samples of Bulliet?

March 7th it is then, if that's ok with everyone.

I'll be sending samples to Willie of the GTS and EC 12 for everyone below. If I have left anyone out, please speak up, as it was by mistake. Nick (C57) will already have his samples, because they were sent previously.

Willie, LagaDrinker, DFI, TreacleSponge, Ras and cathach (just the EC 12).

Please go ahead with the tasting on March 7. My brother is visiting that weekend and so, unfortunately, I will not be able to contribute 'live' on the evening. I would still like to take part so if the thread could be opened early/kept open as usual then I will contribute my thoughts on the bourbons. I'll miss the banter but I know the date has to be set for the benefit of the majority. At the moment I don't have any plans for the 28th Feb, 14th March or 28th March. I guess the 'regular' monthly tasting will be on the 21st March.

I will not be able to make the evening of the 7th either, but will be on with my notes early evening on the 8th.

Really looking forward to it. Got my samples from Ras yesterday. A very nice selection!

I've spoken with Ryguy following his & Ganga's unfortunate experience with posting samples, and as I've got a bottle of Elijah Craig 12 I'll send the samples from here to the Euro folks and hopefully we'll have more luck that way. So PM me if I haven't got your address and you were expecting some EC12 from Ryguy.

Yes, sadly enough, I will not be able to post samples to the Euro folk this time around. Thanks again for your understanding, and many Thanks again to TreacleSponge for sending out some EC12 to everyone on your side of the pond. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I am looking forward to this tasting, I have a few different bourbons now, will at least 1 more bottle coming before the tasting happens.
