Put the bottle with the preppy clothes. My parents used to buy me stuff that I would never actually purchase for myself. I finally asked them to just do gift cards if they felt compelled to purchase a gift. They do that now plus they have purchased some nice whiskey for me. Most recently, JD Silver Select. They've improved with age.

Try it with some ginger ale and ice. It ain't bourbon, but it ain't junk, either.

A friend got me a bottle of Weller Antique 107. It's a 2007 bottling, which I look forward to trying it because the newest bottling I've ever tasted was from 2005.

My wife got me a bottle of Hirsch 21 rye --- not exactly my taste but I certainly appreciate the gesture.

She occasionally will stop by the Party Source and surprise me with a bottle of bourbon she knows I like or something that "I havn't seen you drinking before..." Not always hits, but a great way to broaden my horizons in ways that I might not have taken.

Just one of the many reasons I love her...

WT Rare Breed from my dad. The 07 GTS from my Wife. I bought myself the 07 Handy and Saz18. And the brother in law gave me cigar humidor with some smokes and a cutter. It was a good Christmas.

Now for what I gave. ER SB, 07 GTS, FR 1B and some eggnog made with Old Forseter. Thanks to Jeff's Dad for the recipe.

That sounds like an idea, Tim. You know, I have never even tried mixing scotch with anything but water.

The only beverage related object I got was a book on beers of the world with two small tasting glasses and a bottle opener. And a new Mr Coffee. I'm waiting for those people to put out Mr Bourbon instant bourbon still....

No bourbons but then I don't think the bunker will be empty anytime soon.
