    Re: What are you drinking this moment?

    Hello, Just broke open a bottle of 1993 Evan williams Single Barrel. It's going to be quite chilly here in FL tonight and I have developed a mild head cold. Really hard for me to do a proper tasting as my noise is kinda plugged up. Even with my head being the way it is. My first impressions are quite favorable. The best part it was on sale for $17.99 cost me $19.25 with sales tax.Creggor

    Sure Tom. It is one of several bottles I plan on aquiring with my tax refund (I hope). The one drink I had was at the Cigar Bar after a couple drinks of other fine bourbons, so my tastes may have been skewed a bit, but my initial impression was of a full bodied, woodsy bourbon that went well with my cigar.

    Sales Tax on Liquor. What a backwards state you must live in
    Move to KY where they tax cars not bourbon.

    Unless the "Luv-Gov" gets his way and we get new taxes on alcohol and higher taxes on our smokes

    Wonder why good ol' Paul doesn't throw a tax on extramarital affairs? Oh yeah then he'd have to pay some.

    Re: What are you drinking this moment?

    Hello, Just cracked open a bottle of 13yr Vanwinkle Family Reserve Rye Whiskey.
    This is one of my alltime favorite drinks. Today I was told by Julian Vanwinkle that National Distributing here in Florida is now handing the distribution of his whiskeys and that any store can now order his whiskeys in Florida. That is reason for me to celebrate. A Tip Of The Hat To You Julian. Keep up the good work. Julian also informed me that he still has some of the 13yr Rye available from the same source. Another reason to open the bottle I have here. I know I can now get more of this wonderfull Rye Whiskey. Creggor

    Re: What are you drinking this moment?

    Oooooh Jeff thats a HOT topic with me right now, I got an off topic editorial brewing about the shenanigans of the Ohio Guvnuh Taft and his wanting to raise the already ridiculous "sin tax" on alcohol and tobacco in this state. Its bad enough we are a freakin' control state, but they cant even cut us a price break!


    GRRRRRRRRRRRR. . . .

    Was Julian specific about how long the source would be providing FRR? In other words, are they continuing to distill and age? Or do they just have some more limited stock they have yet to bottle?

    Hello, CL. No. Julian was not specific. All he told me was they were able to secure some additional 13yr Rye Whiskey from the same source. This will allow them to continue to offer this for the time being..Hope this helps. Creggor
