    Well, I had to buy my own holiday spirit for Christmas...I finally found Russell's Reserve Rye in Indiana.

    Put the bottle with the preppy clothes. My parents used to buy me stuff that I would never actually purchase for myself. I finally asked them to just do gift cards if they felt compelled to purchase a gift. They do that now plus they have purchased some nice whiskey for me. Most recently, JD Silver Select. They've improved with age.

    Try it with some ginger ale and ice. It ain't bourbon, but it ain't junk, either.

    A friend got me a bottle of Weller Antique 107. It's a 2007 bottling, which I look forward to trying it because the newest bottling I've ever tasted was from 2005.

    Re: What did you all get for Christmas?

    My wife got me a bottle of Hirsch 21 rye --- not exactly my taste but I certainly appreciate the gesture.

    She occasionally will stop by the Party Source and surprise me with a bottle of bourbon she knows I like or something that "I havn't seen you drinking before..." Not always hits, but a great way to broaden my horizons in ways that I might not have taken.

    Just one of the many reasons I love her...
