Decided to have my Christmas Cheer neat. Time to get my buds back! Thought I'd start out light with these little low proofers.

Just found out earlier this week that my brother-in-law has ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). So tonight he wanted to sit by a fire. So I pulled out a Pappy 20y to share with him.   

A friend had lost his wife to cancer a few days ago, and to give him a little pick-me-up I told him at the funeral parlor I'd stop by his home with a couple nice Bourbons to raise in her honor after s

Had a little tasting today at the Loch & K(e)y Society.     A pre-game photo to get fishinbowljoe's heartbeat up and running, eyes dilated, and breathing heavy.     ?

A nice pour, and I love the pool in the background shot as well! 

 

Cheers,

Not trying to be self-promoting with this post photo, just polishing off the end of my Magnus Cigar Blend Bourbon, batch #2. That particular batch is one of my personal favorites. 

 

Also included is a photo of a flight of 17, 18, 21, 25, and 30 year Jefferson's Reserve Bourbons, which I had the pleasure to enjoy while working in TX earlier this month. Of the two bottles from the Stitzel-Weller juice, the 17 year was exceptional. From the MGP juice, the 21 and 30 were the standouts. The 25 year was nice, but it didn't have the length and depth that I would expect on the palate. 

 

Cheers, and Happy Holidays all! Hope you all are drinking something special tonight. 

Nancy

Thanks! This will come in handy while Santa’s in his workshop tonight. I just hope I can close the shop before the kids wake up tomorrow morning.

Need that album.

 

It's a fun listen once a year around the holidays kind of a mess and kind of great at the same time.

Had some really nice rum while preparing the prime rib for dinner.

Opened the Parker’s Curaçao barrel from last year with desert. I mean it’s not bad but way too much influence from the Curaçao barrels. It’ll take a while to consume.

Had some of a new bottle of McKenna and maybe it’s a lucky barrel but I forgot how much I like this stuff. It’s really the right proof and age for HH. It’s got less oak and is more dry than EC. If you’re like me and you prefer Buffalo Trace over Eagle Rare you’ll prefer this.

We gave Santa some cookies and the Texas classic. That fat bastard had a few three finger pours.

Merry Xmas.

Merry Christmas to all! Took the 6 year old grandson for a ride tonight to see Christmas lights, and fun was had by all. When home, opened an Old Scout Single Barrel, bottled in July 2016, by Sarah, of course. A blown cork ensued, but I have a bunch on hand to replace it.

The follow up pour is pretty delightful as well.

And I have high expectations for my nightcap as well. Christmas comes but once a year after all.

So how would you rank them, I’d imagine squat bottle ORVW but everyone is different.

Merry Christmas all. Last night while finishing up preparations.

Now after a great Christmas morning and lunch. While the kids nap enjoying with some home made bourbon, chocolate chunk and pecan cookies the Mrs. stayed up late making for me. Told her to use the OE7. Phenomenal and these two are basically like biscuits.

I'll take some of that prime rid off your hands if you have any left, @HoustonNit. That photo is making my mouth water! ?
