    I like the idea of Rare Breed, but that may too much proof for the masses. Go with WT 101 or 81...unless they already know the good stuff...then go with RB.

    I am going with Rare Breed as my primary. I will likely be the only one drinking bourbon, so I don't need to cater to the masses. Other than that, I am thinking I will have some AE rye, and whatever else pops out. I just baked a pecan pie tonight, so I am gearing up.

    Dude, thats awesome, you totally should do that. It's not like most people could tell the difference, and I'm most likely included there.

A bartender gave me a taste of his pecan-infused rye (he used cinnamon only) and it tasted like pecan pie. Had a bottle of Rittenhouse sitting around do I gave it a whirl. I'm going to taste on Tuesday or Wednesday.
    Seems like those filtered out pecans left over would be tasty too, even if they were a mushy pulp!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Hmm, this might be an occasion to open up my bottle of FRLT125th. Decisions, decisions....

    I just dumped the rye back into a bottle. Was surprised by how much the pecans soaked up (probably 150ml). Pecans aren't mushy at all. Trying to decide whether to just bake them or candy them (involves lots of butter, sugar, etc.).

    I may have some Gold Foil, or maybe some WTRye101, but since I wanna enjoy myself on Turkey Day, I will serve nothing current from WT.

    (My apologies to WT fans.)

    Might need to add a couple drops of liquid smoke if you're using the 20 yr bottle...
