his first Bourbon. And I do believe Bourbon has it's newest fan.
The moonshine he was drinking the most was made in the backyard of an acquaintance of a friend of his. And when I visited him for Thanksgiving, he had some strange peach flavored nasty moonshine his wife had bought him from who the heck knows where.
Well, my eldest son was staying with him for Thanksgiving, and arrived early with some Buffalo Trace hand selected by the good folks at Market Square in Tallahassee. He texted me and said my brother in law (and sister) loved it, and to bring some of the higher proof stuff. So I bought some Old Grand Dad 114 and took it with me to Southern Alabama to visit my brother in law.
Well, he loved the stuff. He doesn't sip it, though. He fills a shot glass to the brim and downs it in one gulp. A couple of shots later and he's done. Not the way I enjoy it, as I like to take my time with it and enjoy it slowly.
Well, to each their own. But, regardless of how he drinks it, he very much enjoyed it. And I wouldn't even touch that peach flavored nonsense he had. And after some BT and OGD 114, he probably won't either.
For Christmas? It'll be Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve, 120 proof. And he shall be hooked on the good stuff for life.
