    Christmas Bourbon

    Did Santa bring bourbon for anyone? I looked under the tree but I didn't find any...

    None under the tree, but thanks goodness there is plenty in the cabinet.

    I got a decanter set with two glasses, but no bourbon. But, I bet I could find something lying around to put in it...Now I just need to find out if it is lead free crystal.

    Me too! My wife gave me a really nice pair of Riedel Single Malt glasses. I noticed that the Reidel Bourbon glasses are lead free whereas the Single Malt are not. I've read comments in some threads that leaded crystal is not recommended for some tastings. Can anyone explain why?

    I was just thinking...I did get some money though so now I get to decide what bourbon I'll get for Christmas...I'm thinking about a OFBB 2006 or 2008 as I don't have any of those in the collection!

    More importantly who started off Chistmas morning with a little nip from the Christmas Bourbon...call it a visit from the spirit of Christmas past, present or future!

    Apparently alcohol in prolonged contact with lead crystal will leech some of the lead out of the crystal and into the liquid. For tastings I wouldn't think the whiskey would be in contact with the glasses long enough to pick up anything more than traces, but I suppose it could still affect the taste.
