    Re: Christmas Bourbon

    No bourbon (yet), but did receive a gift card to one of my favorite liquor/cigar stores - tough choice. Also received a flask (empty?).

    Re: Christmas Bourbon

    No bourbon here, but I did get a gift card from work so that may change. Like I need more bourbon.

    What I should do is spend the gift card on gasoline, and add that money to the bourbon fund with the intend of getting one of those ORVW 23 sets. With some other funds I'd be about a quarter of the way there. At $20/week in a half year it could be mine.

    Re: Christmas Bourbon

    Delima...I got some cash for xmas and the decanter set my wife got me may not be lead free crystal...If it isn't then it will need to go back which will give me enough money for one of the ORVW 114 sets. The cash will likely go to bourbon regardless, but I am fighting with the price tag on this set. Do I blow the whole wad on one bottle or buy several really good bottles? Decisions, decisions...

    Re: Christmas Bourbon

    But this does beg the question: Is the flippin' Van Winkle decanter lead free?

    Re: Christmas Bourbon

    I received a copy of the book, But Always Fine Bourbon, some PVW 15, and Lot B. Then tomorrow on my trip from KY to Wisconsin to visit family, I'm picking up a bottle of GTS and WLW that have been on hold for me. I'm a first time poster, long time reader, and needless to say, you all have helped expand my horizons. The funny thing is, the book might be my favorite so far! What an outstanding read, its very interesting and has given me the urge to track down some SW bourbon. Merry Christmas!

    Re: Christmas Bourbon

    No bourbon, though last night i got to taste WT American Honey for the first time (bah humbug!). OTOH, the wife did get me "Kentucky Bourbon: the early years" and some cash to buy the 4R 120th I found by complete accident the other day.
