    "Pumpkin Pie" Bourbon

    I have attempted to make "pumpkin pie" bourbon. Sort of based on the premise of "Apple Pie" (Justified).

    I used Old Charter 10, vanilla bean, cinnamon stick, brown sugar, baked pumpkin slices form a party next Friday.

    I'm interested in anyone else s ideas on this. I'll post how it turns out.

    Good thinking there, it sounds wonderful for an after-dinner dram. Just a suggestion, but for another batch, add dried apple slices. In England, pumpkin and apple have been combined in pies for hundreds of years. Pumpkin is American but migrated there very early and the use of apple is an interesting complement. I'd advise this if the "squashy" taste is too pronounced in your current essay.

    Sorry to thread drift a bit but when I was working at a bakery we did a pumpkin pie with apples on the bottom for thanksgiving. Quite good actually. Give it a shot Enoch. Let us know how it comes out.

    Good to hear that (re the apples and pumpkin in U.S. pies), testament surely to old connections between America and Britain whence so many immigrants came.
