    What Bourbon Are You Drinking Winter '08/'09

    The snow and ice outside tells me it is Winter, and the other thread was getting very long. So, let's hear it, what are you drinking to keep yourself warm this winter?

    Me, for now is coffee, but that will change soon.

    Makers and Coke now! I will be pulling out the snowblower in a bit and I wanted something simple and the MM bottle is the last one I have.

    My wife just laughed at me...to Sarah and I quote "Daddy is having Makers Mark? What the heck is wrong with Daddy tonight Sarah? Daddy don't drink Maker's Mark!"

    I had to post this as it was just said and I'm still laughing

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking Winter '08

    here in Media, PA, i came back from work in rainy DE to find a slightly snowy, now sleeting environment...thusly requiring some WT rare breed, then a pour from this quickly diminishing bottle of Sazerac Rye...then some more again but with some OGD 114 splashed in (wow...cayenne cream puff explosions!)...and, to finish the night, slow down from the Sazerac juggernaut...and slide into home with a Saranac ESB...

    why not? i don't work tomorrow...took one of my rare 'personal days' to spend the day with my wife: year 3 on the nuptial odometer

    Tonight it is Bernheim Wheat Whiskey. Felt like mixing it up a little.

    63 degrees in my neck of the woods at the moment. Tomorrow's high is 84. Isn't is supposed to be December?

    Trying to stay warm here in a very cold and snowy Iowa, I'm having EWSB 97. It's as good as the 95.

    Buffalo Trace.

    For the past week when I've had a drink it has been either wine or tequila. Bourbon is now back in my glass. MMMMM..... good stuff ..... I just can't fathom why anyone wouldn't like BT. Unless, of course, they've had the misfortune of getting a 'musty' bottle.

    The Winter Solstice does not occur until 12/21/2008. That fact makes this entire thread just a bit early.

    Yesterday it was WT 8 export, vintage 21 rye and ORVWFRR B. The stile of the 2 rye bottles was very different with the B being very heavy and woody and the 21 elegant and appetising.

    SBOmarc is right, it's not officially winter yet, but it's close enough!
    We had temps in the high 20s and some freezing rain yesterday...
    I warmed up with Weller 12 after dinner last night.
