It's great to get back on this site after a break.
I met up with some old Army buddies a couple of weeks back and we had a Spag Bol and chilled night in - even wives were allowed!
It was a great night with plenty of chatting, good food and laughs. I knew this may be the place to introduce decent Bourbon to a couple of people who had not really come across it before.
I chose 3 very different and relatively high proof whiskeys but ones I knew would work. After all the food was gone and we were relaxed I broke out RHF, VW12YO Lot B, and Knob creek.
After a quick intro as to what bourbon is and how it is made we got to the drinking. Not to draw the story out too long, eveyone really enjoyed the drinks and a couple of the guys really picked my brains and wanted to know where/how they could start collecting/learning about decent Bourbon. I pointed them to this site...
The after dinner drinks were the highlight of the night and it gave me a warm fuzzy feeling to be with good mates and fine whiskey.
Anyone got any Bourbon stories to share?
