I read somewhere that 12-yr-old Very Special Old Fitzgerald was *the bourbon* of choice served by many former Presidents in the White House. Can our historians verify this? Certainly Eagle Rare, with its patriotic bird and stars label deserves some shelf space at 1600 Penn. Ave. Just wondering if there are other favorites served to dignitaries asking for a taste of America's spirit.

Then again, maybe they just get Jack and Coke on the rocks.
