    Post I broke out the Medical Whiskey

    Well tonight I did not feel real good so I decided it was time to break out my bottle of Prepro Old Taylor 100 proof (Spiritus Frumenti) Medical Whiskey!

    I got this late last summer a full quart filled in early 1933 distilled around 1917. On the box and the bottle it says it is unexcelled for medical Drinking and it sure is.
    Taste notes the first thing I taste is sweet wood and caramel, then a really nice Malty Alcohol taste. It is very dark and after in your mouth for a little bit it is like eating Liquid Rye bread. If I had lived in those days it would have been my favorite Medicine.

    I got it at a flee market last year for $7.00 because when I looked at it the guy said you will drink it I bet, I said sure would and he said its your for $7.00. It pours very dark and the woody flavor is so sweet and nice it is hard to believe. I wrote about this last year and tonight I thought I would talk about it again.

    What a great Whiskey it is, why can't someone make a product like this strong 100 proof yet smooth as can be. Other then Our Continental Distilling Products this is one of my all time favorite whiskeys.

    Re: I broke out the Medical Whiskey

    When I was little my Grandmother used to drink scotch and bourbon, but for medicinal purposes, only Irish Whiskey would do. I am not sure why, it was never used for drinking only a tablespoon when you had a cold or sorethroat or other sickness. I loved going to Grandma's when I was sick!

    I'm sure they can. If you are willing to wait 93 years for it.

    Actually, I am feeling a little tickle in my throat. Might have a little cold coming on. Or bursitis. Or something. Anything! I'll be right over.

    I don't have any medical whiskey but I have been testing that theory of taking a sip (or two) of whiskey when I feel the start of a cold coming on. So far it seems to be working in all of my non clinical tests, and tastes way better than that Zycam crap my wife uses.

    Sorry to hear you're not feeling well but what better way to overcome the onset of a cold! That bottle was a nice find and you can't beat the price. I don't come across cool stuff like that very often but will have to keep a better look-out this summer when I start hitting the lawn/garage/estate sales.

    I know exactly what you mean. My Irish grandmother was as sober as a judge but would nip the Irish whiskey if she was ill (and had the occasional Guinness too for certain "ailments" when they came along). That's how I had my first sip of Jamesons.

    oh yes, a sip of whiskey and then a mug of hot tea does wonders when im sick.
