    What are you drinking tonight? (Fall '07)

    It's officially fall, so it's time to start a new seasonal drinking thread. What's on the agenda tonight?

    Mixed some late '80's Old Charter 10yr with some current VOB 90 proof. Made a fabulously ballanced dram for a hot eve. in Austin. Went 50-50 as best I could.....had about six inches of that stuff before I felt about melted. Think I'll try that again soon.

    Old Old Charter and Barton's, eh? What inspired that choice? I would have never thought to vat them.

    Do you think it would work with some other years/proofs? I have some not-quite-so-old Old Charter (7 & 8 yr), and some 86pf VOB.

    Wild Turkey Rye and Ginger. Yum. I don't think I like it quite as well as Ritt BIB and Ginger, but close, and maybe sometimes better.

    I really liked the sweet fruits of the Charter and the back bone of the VOB. Plus I had both bottles out from a consolidation effort earlier.

    Re: What are you drinking tonight? (Fall '07)

    Someone on another thread said that Jimmy Russell liked to keep Rare Breed in the freezer and drink it straight. I was told by a distillery manager in Scotland that whisky should be drunk at room temperature where it was made. I tend to agree, but I figure if Jimmy likes it it can't be all bad. I put a bottle in the freezer a couple days ago and had some last night and was surprised how good it was and it seemed that the cold changed the nose. I tried it again tonight, along with a good "Swiss" cigar, and the cigar seemed to cry out "Right distillery, wrong bourbon, Get Kentucky Spirit". I did (at room temperature) and it went much better with the cigar.
