Later sunset taken advantage of today with a cycling activity. The office park paramotorer was up and at it this evening. :bday:

Need a nice bourbon for a gift in the $100 range. Any suggestions?

I have long wondered the same about LSS.

Our consult service tried to have an on-site holiday potluck lunch thing, but the authorities killed it. Meanwhile I sat through an all-day editorial board meeting and dinner at a crowded downtown restaurant this weekend. I wonder which would have been safer.:foo:

At that price point, you can't really miss. It becomes a matter of preference for the subtleties. I'm not sure what the current prices are, but Michter's, Booker's, and Rowan's Creek are ones I have particularly enjoyed in recent history.

Our German shepard shed like it was his job. He shed his fur faster than we could vacuum it up.

It's a preference thing. I will always pick a bourbon or rye over scotch or irish, if I have the choice.

So instead, go for 3 bottles of decent bourbon.

For a different twist, look into Japanese Whiskey. A buddy of mine has a couple that he's shared with me. Excellent stuff.

Scotch, maybe. Irish? It's like Scotch, but without the flavor.

I recently did a tasting of some Buffalo Trace bourbons. The W.L. Weller Special Reserve was nice in that price range.

If its for a true bourbon drinker Elijah Craig Small Batch Bourbon or Woodford Reserve or Eagle Rare or Van Winkle. Most good bourbons are priced in the $50-75 range unless its a special edition or single barrel. Blantonís Single Barrel is about $100 and is a great bourbon!

One of our local distilleries makes a tasty rye.

Is it just me, or do all the main roads seem to point straight into the setting sun at 5:00 p.m.?

Most of the main ones do.

DougRNS 12-14-21 07:01 PM

I'm not feeling argumentative.
