    It's your call!

    Okay.... you have walked into the best stocked hotel bar in the World on the 1st day of a 2 week vacation. Everything (limited release and every year) is there wating for you to try - what would be your 1st pour and why?

    Mine would be (after much gnashing of teeth!) RHF staight up.

    A couple of old fashioned, VW Lot B, VWFRR 13 YO, GTS 2003 and numerous WT offerings would follow in the next few days but RHF is my 1st in best dressed!

    Even things that are no longer produced? If so then:

    Very Very Old Fitzgerald because it may be the single greatest bourbon ever produced. Followed by all the other great iterations of SW Old Fitzgerald.

    See Bourbon, Straight by Charles Cowdery.

    Old Crow from way back when would be nice to try also...

    Simple dimples!

    Wild Turkey Kentucky Legend SB Barrel proof.

    I curse myself constantly for not stocking up on this one when it was readily available.
    Delighted to see you if you can find me!

    Yep!

    Anything goes from the no longer around to the sinfully expensive. The only limits are our fertile imaginations - this is one Hell of a well stocked bar...

    I should add that all drinks are on the house for the whole vacation.

    I would try something that didn't look familiar to me.

    I believe I would start with some George Dickel from when it was made at what is now Buffalo Trace, and then follow up with some of Professor Crow's best. Then it's on to a drop or two of Jefferson's Rye, Mitcher's Sour Mash, Colonel Blanton's private stock, Maker's 101....Hmmm? Only two weeks? Maybe they're hiring!

    Mine would be Wild Turkey 12-year old. It is my current "Holy Grail" bourbon, because I have never had the opportunity to try it. Well, I did pass up a bottle in Atlanta about five years ago because I didn't have the necessary funds ($50 + tax), at the time.

    I am not sure what my first drink would be. I am too busy planning the rest of the vacation...

    The new Buffalo Trace Experimental Releases. I'd be curious to see how the experiments (double virgin oak, french oak, and higher char) affect the spirit. REALLY curiuous about this release...

    Then some Rittenhouse Rye BIB 100 abv...
