    Re: Helen Cromwell quote

    Inspired by this post, I went to High on Rose and ordered their double thick pork chop and accompanied it with a WT101 Manhattan (or two). Nice combo. I have some ribeyes in the freezer and a buffalo roast. what do you think we go good with buffalo, Stagg?

    Re: Helen Cromwell quote

    Never had Stagg, and have only had buffalo twice that I can recall in 10 years. With that disclaimer, for some reason, EC 18 came to mind when I read your post.

    In any case, let me know how it turns out!

    Buffalo sounds like a CrackerJack entree to me. Pony up the Old Fitz BIB.

    Re: Helen Cromwell quote

    Ed,

    I would thnk that Stagg would be just about the perfect bourbon for buffalo. I've had buffalo steak with Blanton's, Woodford, and WT KS. The meat was prepared the same way each time, and trying different bourbons was intentional.

    In my opinion, the Blanton's was the hands down winner, the WT second place, and the Woodford ruined the meat(so I slammed it, ordered a Blanton's neat, and carried on.) The meat was served in a red wine reduction sauce and Blanton's flavor profile just fit the presentation perfectly. Buffalo steak has quite a bit of flavor no matter how it is prepared, and I would think any higher proof bourbon would pair well with it.

    Yes, that was it. It was about 20 years ago, so it was difficult to remember, but you nailed it. Thanks!

    Re: Bourbon with steak

    Booker's and steak anyone? Perfect in my opinion.
    I remember seeing a pompous show on English tv a while back, where some aristocratic type invited his guests to "a small whiskey before dinner."
    I'll go along with that (as well one as during and after as well!)
    Higher proof whiskey also holds it's own with the flavour of the dish you're eating as well, I find.

    Honestly, I can't specifically remember trying this combination. Planning steaks on the grill Saturday, and I have an unopened bottle of Booker's. HMMMM....

    Regarding the higher proof bourbons, I will agree that Rare Breed seems to go particularly well with steak. Then again, VOB 80 goes well, too, and I think JD is a great steak complement.

    Bourbon and steak Saturday night

    We had a good bourbon and steak night. Unfortunately, I could have done better on the steaks - slightly overcooked to our taste. Still, charcoal grilled steaks with whiskey can't be beat. Picture #1: Steaks on the grill, my AAA 10 yr on the rocks (melted) next to the grill. Of course, I'm drinking it in a Four Roses glass.

    Then I had the Booker's suggested by our fellow Bourbonian. Magnificent. Ultimately, I cut it with a little bit of water.

    Top secret: Tina is abstaining right now due to our VERY recent discovery that she is expecting. Consequently, she and Claire (our 2 year old) recommend for tea totallers:
