    Re: Thanksgiving bourbon/rye

    I'm in total agreement with the above. I wouldn't kick out anything named eagle if someone wants to bring one by either.

    I'll probably settle for a WT rye and some W12 for my holiday pouring pleasure. Cheers to each and all, whatever pour you choose!

    Re: Thanksgiving bourbon/rye

    I'm the only one in my family that drinks anything at all. On my side of the family, there's just sodas and tea. When we have holidays at my in-laws, they're a bunch of wine drinkers, and I dont feel out of place having a pour of anything over there.

    I would use your situation as a perfect opportunity to try some iteration of WT that I haven't had before. I've not had WT American Spirit, but the name sure feels welcoming to a Thanksgiving day libation!

    That sounds pretty nice, I only have the regular John J Bowman so I'll likely skip that this year. I'm leaning towards pouring that AE Rye with dessert and maybe a WT with the food itself.

    Re: Thanksgiving bourbon/rye

    I'm hosting for the first time this year which means, in addition to being responsible for the bird, I'm pouring anything and everything I want. There will be some PVW for my father-in-law and some Four Roses and VOS as well. Might get the AE Rye and Gingerbread Bowman out after the meal.

    Yes, yes there is.

    My parents are hosting this year. It's a non whiskey drinking crowd in general so going with something sweet and fun will likely be appreciated. If I broke out the "serious" whiskeys they would likely all think they were too strong.

    I bet Yeti would have one hell of a gathering....

    I dunno. I read about it online, but I've never seen one.

    A good price would be around $80-90
