    Firing Squad Whiskey- A Blindfold, a cigarette...and your last pour, what is it?

    You've been caught by the rebels, you've been sentenced for a crime you didn't commit....and it's meet your maker time.

    However, before you ship off, you get to pour yourself 1 final beverage...and it can be anything in the world..(no, it can't be something that you've never had/always wanted to try, first hand experience is a must, because if you've never had it, how do you know it's the best thing you've ever had, right?)...so what will it be?

    My answer - I'd have a big glass of the Old Fitzgerald 6 year, SW juice from the 1940's that a certain fine gentleman in Seattle poured for me about 3 months ago....and call it a day.

    Macabre, yes....but a novel idea.

    Ok, your turn, go!

    Oh, probably about 4 fingers of the current RittBIB.

    It's not the best whiskey I've ever had in my life, but it's close, and seems appropriate somehow for a firing squad.

    Straight back from the bottle with some GTS.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    A 1.75L of OGD114 - and they have to wait until I finish it.

    I've never seen a 1.75 of 114. I don't think they make one. I think a 750 will do.

    My bottle of Four Roses Mariage '09 will do the trick.
