Reply to "It’s October folks - what wines are you guzzling?"

Dinner a couple nights ago:

2010 Domaine does Lambrays Les Loups MSD - drinking really well, and perfect pairing for a whole roast duck 

1995 Zind-Humbrecht Rangen de Thann Clos Saint Urbain - post-meal surprise.  Residual sugar a bit higher than I’d like, giving off a flavor reminiscent of creme brûlée that had been torched a couple seconds too long.  Not unpleasant, but I wouldn’t wait much longer to consume if I had any in my cellar

1980 (bottle date) Sunny Brook Kentucky straight bourbon - from a 200ml.  Nose was fascinating, with a plantain note most prominent.  Vanilla, cherry and plantain on the palate were harmonious.  Been really enjoying opening up a bunch of “dusties” I acquired this past month.  The contrast between what bourbon was like decades ago to what’s being distilled now is interesting, to say the least
