Lot 40 is pretty good, I had some last night. Definitely better (much) in my view to CR.
I got a 1980 Jim Beam White Label (so probably distilled circa 1975) from a relation's condo bar in Florida at Xmas, bottle was open but almost full and well-closed. To me it was quite different to Beam of today. It tasted somewhat like the current Beam Black, a slightly younger version, but in general was rich and soft which Beam White today is not and was less "clean" than Black is today. Maybe I'll bring that to Gazebo too (if I drive I can take more stuff but I may fly).
C'mon guys I spent half the night (literally) putting together that e-mail on M'Harry's book, how about some reaction?
