I enjoyed your reviews, Mike, knowing full well that I can count on what they report. It is good to see your reviews once again. Us BE folks put great store by them.

Mike,
Thank you for the vote of support for my reviews. I am actually working on a tasting book with Susan Riegler so most of my tasting notes are being written for that project, but when I get something new that is not reviewed on the database here, I do the review. Besides there are several other people, including yourself, that are writing fine reviews so I feel no great need to add reviews here on a consistant basis.

Now as to these three Willetts I have reviewed - they are from three barrels purchased by the Bourbon Society. They are all very good bourbons. My favorite of the three is the 6yo because I love a good fruity bourbon. The 7yo is as spicey as the 60yo is fruity, which makes it a very good bourbon as well. My least favorite of the three barrels is the 16yo which is a very good bourbon, but like all bourbons of that age, the flavors are all barrel driven. It is the least interesting as a result.
