    Re: Red State/Blue State

    I will admit that we picked a bottle of each up in Bardstown in September. The wife wants to serve them at an election night party!

    Re: Red State/Blue State

    When I saw the title it sounded like the begining of a Dr. Zeus rhyme: Red state, blue state, bad state, good state
    |-o-| [-o-] |-o-| "I'm on the leader"

    Seems like half that party might end up leaving pissed off.

    I wish HH would release sales figures of each. Would be an interesting but non scientific poll.

    I submit that this is the only good excuse for any of us dropping coin on this type of product.

    Yes but at least they'll be able to start the sad drinking early. And I won't have to serve my good stuff.

    Re: Red State/Blue State

    So since I bought some EC12, does that mean I just voted for the Rev. Elijah Craig for president?? Because I'm sure he'd do a better job than either of the *insert curse word here* we have to pick from in a few short weeks. Oh, and his bourbon is mighty fine stuff too.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    Since I figure these are pretty much bottom, bottom shelf bourbons. It would be interesting to see if Repubs or Dems have the worst taste in Bourbon.

    This comment is in jest and in no way a political statement.

    Re: Red State/Blue State

    Heaven Hill's Red State/Blue State is actually some pretty decent bourbon. Nothing to set your heart aflutter, of course, but perfectly drinkable. It's such a tribute to Heaven Hill's quality that even a bourbon they made as a joke is pretty darn good.

    After the election, stores that still have it will probably blow it out cheap. It's worth picking up if you have a chance.
