Daughter and soon-to-be son-in-law headed out to scout a ground squirrel shooting spot, and the wife and I are tasting Kentucky straight bourbons in the parlor.
From left: Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select 90.5 proof; Elijah Craig 18-year-old 90 proof (my favorite); Rowan’s Creek 100.1 proof (wife’s favorite so far); Booker’s 7-year-old 128 proof.
The Rowan’s Creek is awesome and at Costco right now for about $35/bottle; it’s a great deal if you like a really smooth bourbon with a spicy, fiery finish.
Top-shelf whisky seems expensive until you realize how much longer it lasts than the equivalent bottle of wine….
My favorite bourbons right now are the Elijah Craig, Knob Creek, Wild Turkey’s Kentucky Spirit, and a 3-year-old Willett Rye that’s also at Costco. Good stuff.
