It's Super Bowl Sunday once again and you know what that means – time for BP’s Super Bowl starting bourbon line-up, subject to substitution for poor performance under pressure, of course. Last year’s line-up was a fine one: Super Bowl Bourbon 2003. Tonight’s starters are lined up and ready for action.
In honor of tonight’s venue and the reemergence of the Texans, Sam Houston 10yo 90 will be my kick-off pour.
One of the stars of 2003 will start the second quarter, Barton’s Ridgewood Reserve 1792, at 93.7.
Van Winkle Half Time:
This year the Van Winkle Half Time features a shoot out between the Van Winkle Ryes – 12yo Old Time, at 90, and 13yo Family Reserve, at 95.6.
Now things are getting serious. It’s time to hit the triple digits in proof. Tonight’s Heaven Hill starter is Evan Williams Red Label 12yo, a fiesty 101.
To close out the game, I’ve decided to close out a celebrated bottle – the one and only, original Cracker Jack that made its way to Bardstown for the 2003 Festival. The few fingers that remain of this Old Fitzgerald BIB 100 will top off tonight’s game. (It wouldn't be a Super Bowl without some peanuts!)
In the rare event of a Super Bowl Overtime, Wild Turkey Rare Breed, at 108.4, will appear after the coin toss.
Enjoy the game and post your pours as the evening progresses!
