    New Year Celebration

    What are you likely to drink this New Years Eve?

    Nothing?

    Exclusively Bourbon?

    Whatever someone else serves for free?

    Bourbon followed by Champagne (or at least something sparking) at midnight?

    Wine and champagne?

    Beer?

    All of the above?

    I cannot predict what mood I will be in and the mood determines what I will drink.

    Greg,

    One of my wife's many vices is an intense love of Cordon Negro, and that is what we'll be drinking at midnight. I'll be drinking bourbon up until that time, but Vickie will be cruising on Cordon Negro all night.

    Re: New Year Celebration

    Linn, I love Vickie's vices. I am sure we'll drink something sparkling about midnight. I love good French champagne and now some California bubbly. Not sure what I'll drink before, yet.

    -- how 'bout the rest of you?

    Probably I'll be dipping into my last bottle of WT 12 YO, and my wife will have her Glenlivet.

    Re: New Year Celebration

    Hmm, Since my bottle of '91 EWSB is over halfway finished I'll probably stick with that although Wathen's might make an appearance. Around midnight I'm sure that I'll have a glass of champagne. I think Chateau Ste. Michelle (Washington state) makes pretty good champagne and it's not outrageously priced (I know, it's not true champagne unless it's from Champagne, France).

    At one New Year's party I tried a martini 'cause I was in a British-cut tux and wanted it just because I had the James Bond thing going on. I finished it, but it cured me of ever wanting to try another martini.

    Re: New Year Celebration

    Will start off with a dram of Lagavulin Distiller's Edition 1980 after work with fellow employees, then head home to the family and share a bottle of Louis Roederer N.V. Brut with my beautiful wife. After everyone else has gone to bed, perhaps I'll stare out the window at the new year with a glass of Bowmore 21 in my hand.

    Now, wait a sec. Before certain folks get in a snit, I want you all to know that I attended a dinner party two nights ago, and as my contribution to the party I presented the host a bottle of A. H. Hirsch 16 yo. The Hirsch was opened after midnight and provided the perfect end to a wonderful evening.

    I wish a happy, healthy and prosperous new year to one and all!

    Re: New Year Celebration

    The only sure thing about the 'drinking arrangements' is a glass of Champagne around midnite.
    My plan was to begin the evening with a JD Silver Select, followed by a MM Ltd. Edition, 'crescendoing' into a sip of WT 12 yo.
    But who knows - since I'm no 'serious drinker' I'll probably need a triple Espresso (intravenously) after the MM...

    Re: New Year Celebration

    Ekki,

    Have you ever tried JD Single Barrel? I'm just wondering if you could describe any difference between JD Single Barrel and JD Silver Select. The only difference I know of is the proof...JD SB 94, JD SS 100.
