After an initial glass, it remained astringent and had a bit of "copper penny" finish, so I decided tonight wasn't a bourbon night. I'll come back to it when I'm in the mood.
A toast in memory of your father Rich, and my deepest sympathy to you and yours.
Having a pour of Booker's 2013-7.
A toast to you and your father Rich. I'm raising a glass of SB blend. It hasn't hit the right notes the last few times, but is right on tonight. It knew to bring the best in honor of a good life.
