    Elijah is good shit. Man, it's got all this spice flavor and a deep color with a 92 proof, but despite all that it's velvety on the tongue because it's 12 years old. It's great that we can get such high quality products for low low prices.

    I have had some remarkable tasting cocktails the last two evenings. Normally I don't like to mix my bourbon with anything, but I have been opening up on that front of late. Tonight I had something called a Pineapple Blast, which was Woodford Reserve with Pineapple Juice on ice. Very refreshing!

    Last night, I had a Woodford Martini which was very tasty followed up with some other signature drink that had Hudson corn whiskey, some peach something and a dash of cinnamon flavoring.

    Good stuffs!!

    He had like a third of a bottle of 90 proof bourbon. It was 40USD too if that makes a difference (it does).

    Last year I went to Louisville for the Kentucky Oaks.
    Stayed at a friend's place. They have a chicken coup and he gave us great bourbon. Put some fresh local honey in it and it was fantastic. I've never had that before and that's right when this Jim Beam Honey stuff started to become "popular." I didn't know putting honey in it was a thing as opposed to being some sort of shitty marketing thing.


    Anyway, Bourbon is great and it's better than Scotch but Scotch is also great.

    Realized there isn't a drop of whiskey in my place so I just went out and bought some Maker's 46. Was considering getting some Woodford but decided I'm too cheap.

    Been drinking the bottle of Johnny Drum Private Stock that the mrs. picked me up as a Valentine's Day gift. Has some aggresiveness neat, but some water or an ice sphere opens it up nicely.

    Coworker gave me his extra set of rubber square ice makers.

    My only issue with them is that they actually melt too slowly.

    Spherical ice melts the slowest. If you want water down whiskey you just use regular ass cubes

    I should clarify -- the ice maker I got makes giant cubes, at least 2" wide.

    My problem is, it doesn't chill down the bourbon enough, as is my preference.

    Didn't need to clarify that, that's the point. Cool it off, take the sting out, don't water it down. That's why they're big.

    You could also use a shaker, gently spin it and strain it out.

    Law officials in Kentucky have busted a bourbon-theft ring and recovered more than $100,000 in stolen bourbon, including hard-to-find Pappy Van Winkle and several barrels of Wild Turkey.

    A grand jury in Franklin County, Ky. on Tuesday indicted nine people involved in the ring, according to the sheriff’s office.

    The local sheriff’s office said it uncovered the ring after receiving a tip and seizing barrels of bourbon stolen from Davide-Campari SpA’s Wild Turkey distillery in Lawrenceburg, Ky. It said the group also was involved in the 2013 theft of about 200 bottles of the rare and wildly popular Pappy Van Winkle bourbon made by Sazerac Company Inc.
