    I've been waiting for him to do bourbons. It should be interesting.

    Re: Ralfy

    Ralfy has started his bourbon reviews. Post # 155 3/3 is an overview
    of 10 he's going to cover. First up was Elijah Craig 12 year and second
    was Western Gold (which included a shout out to Chuck Cowdery.)

    Re: Ralfy

    In his Review # 164 of Rittenhouse Rye, Ralfy gives a nod to SB.com at
    about the 6:25 mark.

    And at the 9:15 mark, he mentions adding a drop of Absinthe to your glass
    of Rye to make a "concentrated Sazerac". Not sure what that's all about -
    anyone else gonna try it?!...

    I've actually done it before. I call it the lazy man's Sazerac. If I want to get that rye/Absinthe flavor but don't feel like muddling sugar, I'll do something quick like that (with a drop of Pechaud's as well).

    Heh, no problem. I really enjoyed Ralfy's "Bourbon Break"
    and hope he'll do some more. Maybe we could convince
    him to sprinkle a few in between Scotch reviews...

    Indeed, but I doubt you'll ever see him do too much on the subject going forward, with the pricing and availability he's seeing. I think he said that GTS is North of $300. $300!!! I doubt you could get a bottle of OWA over there if your life depended on it. Sounds like Bourbon in the UK = MM, JB, and basic BT....
