Yeah, down here in the basement - with a lot of old jazz records - is an old fifties oak bar that came with the place when we bought it. All kinds of storage space. Whiskey's just for sippin' (I always drink it straight), so it's great to be able to keep a bar's worth of choices open.
But I'll confess I'm a mere babe in the woods when it comes to good bourbon. It's been beer for most of my life, and I love a good Yuenglings or Straubs. Bourbon had always been an accompaniment to beer, and the only bourbon I knew the name of was Jack Daniels. Turns out that ain't even a bourbon! But for a year or so now I've rediscovered the pleasure of leasurely imbibing good alcohol without vast amounts of water, and there's nothing, it turns out, that hits the spot like good bourbon.
Sure was good to find this site!
I'm going to try the Old Weller with a bit of water - maybe with a single ice cube.
