    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking Winter '08/'09

    Okay, I hope to God you're kidding. But just in case you're not, that's three cloves of cloves not three cloves of garlic.

    Merry Christmas.

    A little ERSB w/nog followed by a very allocated pour of PVW15 (running low + price is getting too steep); capped the evening with my fav winter pour this year: VWFRR

    That bourbon and garlic would have made a great marinade for my steak.

    Not that is a MERRY CHRISTMAS... Who know, Maybe Pappy has stepped in as Old St. Nick in that Great Distillery in the sky - Old St. Pappy has a nice ring to it....

    Almost time!
    I am now just waiting for my wife to get dressed so I can escort her to the Christmas service at her Unitarian Universalist church.

    Then when we get home it is me and OldSt.NickVanWinkle.
    May the Christmas Angels share some of their share.

    sipping this surprisingly interesting Benchmark. newer bottling, 80 proof predictability...but alot of nose and flavors that are unique enough.
    HUP!

    We had our traditional Christmas Eve celebration with a house full of family and a great treat this year...My son and his family in from Hawaii (Hickham AFB) for the first time in three years! It was lots of fun...capped off by a pour of one of my favorites... PVW 20.
    Merry Christmas!
