    I too got the Cecil book as well as Chuck's book which up till now eluded me.

    The big surprise was the complete '06 Antique Collection along with a bottle of Saz Jr. from my dear wife. Hard to find in these here parts.

    Re: Bourbon Christmas

    I got a bottle of Blanton's from my grandmother, which is good for 2 reasons.
    1) It's a bottle of Blanton's.
    2) There's only one store I know of in Australia that sells it, and it's in another state!

    Good work on her part!

    My dear wife gave me a gorgeous crystal decanter. Filled it with a recently purchased bottle of FR SB (intended for New Year's Eve). Neighbors stopped by. Emptied said decanter. Going shopping today.

    God I love the holidays!

    I got nothing bourbon-related. Although, I am considering going out and getting a bottle or two of the OFBB 2006, which is surprisingly available at Alabama ABC. It is the first interesting new bourbon I have seen them stock in many months.

    Re: Bourbon Christmas

    I didn’t get any bourbon but my brother got me a box of snifters. It’s sitting on the shelf next to the box of Fantome saison glasses I bought a while back. Now, unless I become extremely clumsy, I will always have a proper glass for my two favorite beverages. I thought I was getting the Van Winkle book but no dice…

    Re: Bourbon Christmas

    Being an employer, I received a lot of alchohol from my staff (hidden agenda?). Unfortunately, Chambord, Lemoncellio, Vodka, wine; all gift sets. However, last year my wife gave me a set of Riedel Bourbon glasses; that present still gets used almost everyday. I did get some rocks glasses, but as nice as they are don't compete with the Riedel.

    Jon got a bottle of Old Rip 12 yr old and a bottle of Van Winkle Family Reserve 18 yr old. He wanted a goofy looking bicycle, which I did not buy. I failed again!
