4th of July Bourbon

Recommended Posts

I bought a 1L of BT about 3 weeks ago. I’ll continue to chip away on it shortly when we head to my sister-in-law’s to watch the kids pop fireworks.

So, all not bourbon. Started out with a fresh castle and key pinhook... Gone. Thanks guys. Then went to my sp KC rye... Gone. Thanks again. Cracked one of my LSB 13 from the bunker. Let's see what happens. Most everyone is done, and it's my favorite.

Did you happen to cook anything for other people in the household?  "These are my shrimp.  I'll make sure they aren't BAD.  Would you like some tater tots?"  Did you happen to offer them something to drink as well?  Like, "Here's some Jim Beam.  Make yourself a cocktail."

Little (heck, more than a little) bummed by the news on Gary/Vosgar, but OGD BIB is keeping me in the game as we watch 4 July stuff from around the Nation on CNN.

Started with an OF1910. ~3oz pour which I savored for about an hour while grilling a tri-tip (that came out just about perfect, to my great delight).

 

First time I’ve had it, and I am a fan. It reminded me of WR double oaked, which I really enjoy. But it’s softer on the front palate; I thought of honey with a floral note, lavender perhaps. On the mid-palate it was just sweet and simple corn whiskey, but ended with the dry, oaky, pipe tobacco finish I associate with the double oaked WR. Very sippable. And incredible rich leather color.

 

I ended the night with a Rittenhouse old

fashioned watching fireworks from my front yard, which is pictured. Great night!

 

Happy 4th!

Weller full proof for my July 4th pour.  Late fireworks.

Thanks! That’s the full moon behind my glass, and the illumination from the exploding firework  made it look almost like daytime.

Ha! There were three of us so plenty of seafood for everyone. Man.. its the way to go too.. local seafood market ends up being about 1/4 the price of eating out . The other two had no interest in my choice of drink thankfully.

Happy Fourth, all!.    All the "offfical" fireworks shows were cancelled,  but here at the beach there were amateur displays all along the eight-mile strand, under a  stunning full moon 

 

Out on the deck the sipping consisted of Remus Repeal Reserve (batch II).    The finest MGP juice as presented by MGP itself,  and even better than Metze's Select.    And for variety,  some Buffalo Trace Kosher Wheat,  which is the secret way to get Weller at the Jersey Shore.
