How does this compare to the standard doublewood version?

More oak, and the additional cinnamon, vanilla, and spice really shine. 12 yr is really good stuff, but you'll notice the difference. The second conditioning in sherry wood makes both of these very nice.

I got a bottle of 12 year DoubleWood as a gift for a friend, but our NC prices are kinda steep. I'll drift across the line into SC and see if I can get it for $10-20 less. Out the door in NC was 70 beans.

That's when I ever so gently remind wifey of last time she bought these:


Or these.....


Or had this done....


That usually ends that  discussion

She's trying to look good for you. You're adding a beer belly. I think my wife would cut right through that argument and leave me laying on the ground in pieces.

I tried searching and didn't come up that I had posted about Old Grandad 114. I think I paid $20 for the fifth and it is almost gone, might finish up tonight. Most of the time I find anything over 90 proof to be a little hot and need a cube. Old Grandad 114 was in that category and just not mindblowing enough to drink by itself so I made it a mixer and it is fantastic with ginger. I quit using ginger ale and use Old Balycaster Ginger from Powell & Mahoney instead.

I mentioned Old Ezra 101 back in July and it is the same story except more boring in the glass by itself than Old Grandad 114. In any mixed Bourbon drink it is devine. I think I shelled out 20 beans for Old Ezra and after I drained that bottle I immediately grabbed another to put in the queue.

lol yeah that is typically my rebuttal, but to totally avoid the discussion at all I will typically buy things without her there, we learned a long time ago that we both have expensive taste and the only answer was to set up seperate spending accounts with money for each of us to have fun with on items that are non necessities....as in a 150$ bottle of scotch haha

That ginger concoction from Powell and Mahoney looks good. Have you tried any of their other products?

I just ordered a bottle as a Christmas present for my wife.  Couldn't find it locally, so the shipping is as much as the product, but tis the season.
