    First a pour of Sazerac Jr., followed by Old Fitzgerald BIB.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    [QUOTE=barturtle]This may be one of the first references to drinking OC 8yo that I know of.

    Unfortunatley I have not been able to find other OC offerings. I picked it up, like you, just to try it.

    Doh!! What was I thinking trading a bottle of that wonderful elixir? But, I digress, that bonded whiskey is a heck of a leap in quality over the 8yo 80 proof stuff you get today. My OC 8yo was bought specifically as a cooking whiskey, as my bottle of Old Crow had been emptied, and the OC 8 was the cheapest thing on the shelf...unless you count store brands as actually existing.

    Friday the 13th was indeed a lucky day for me. I had a pour of Black Maple Hill 14-year, followed by some EC18, and a little Booker's to top it off!
    Mmm, dat's good!

    Although I am not supposed to be consuming anything right now after being on antibiotics for a week, I consulted the good Dr. Van Winkle a short while ago about the situation. Dr. Pappy suggested some of his homemade 15/107 elixir could only reinforce the pharmaceutical medications. So, I have followed the good doctor's orders. After only a sip or two, I am feeling much better!

    You know, whether it's a teenage daughter or grown up sister I'd think you could make your point by adding water to whatever they normally drink and ask them if they can tell the difference. Make sure it's sufficient that they can't deny it and then give them that "see, I will know" look.

    BTW, watching footgall today is cause for a pour of Stagg, and it's time I took up that worthy cause....but which one?????? Oh well, whichever has the most in the bottle I guess.....

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.
