    Van Winkle CNN article

    I guess we're a cult now. Hope this doesn't drive prices that much higher:

    It was actually 0810 EST, but I would have done the same at 0600.

    A little bourbon in the AM is wonderful. I only do this when I have a vacation day. Down the road in retirement I see my bourbon consumption increasing. Imagine that will you.

    Let me try.

    (closing eyes. humming)

    Hi hey, Hi hey
    It's home from work I stay
    sleep late and dream
    then pour some Beam
    And drink! All day!


    Oh yeah. Sounds like a Plan.

    Good bourbon is really good in the early AM even before breakfast.

    Bourbon with a coffee chaser is nice.

    Bourbon in coffee is splendid. I like OGD 114 and a dab of creamer.
    I come here because you people make me feel normal.

    It's 8 pm but I'm not sure if I should drink my whiskey neat or with coffee.

    According to the Van Winkle article, ...not all bourbons are alike, aged bourbons attract a cultlike following...as opposed to the unaged bourbon??

    Also a link at the bottom to an article about value bourbons with a quote from our very own Charles Cowdery...his favorite value bourbon is one that someone else is buying.
