Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth.

Luxardo Maraschino Cherries.

For those in NYC, or visiting NYC, Smith & Wollensky is offering Old Fashioned’s, prepared with Pappy Van Winkle for $35, until their stock runs out. Enjoy!

One of our local bars specifies Woodford for manhattans on its menu and I like it. Itís maybe a little on the sweet side though. I call for Basil Haydenís in my manhattans at another local establishment and Iíd say itís my favorite.

Those of you who the airlines have turned into Woodford lovers, watch for the latest Master's Collection release (Batch Proof 125.8) landing in your local liquor store this week.

Thankfully it is only Old Rip Van Winkle and not Pappy, but it is nonetheless an abomination to mix Van Winkle with anything.

Nice Blantons Gold, PVW 15, WLW, GTS, and Michters 10... and nice parafilm.. good for stopping leaks during shipping!

Coworker sent me an article on bourbon pairings for Girl Scout Cookies since itís the season. Save some of the Basil Hayden for the Thin Mints.

Basil Hayden's and GS Thin Mints are two of my favorite things on this planet. I'd never have thought to pair them but cannot wait to try it.

Picked up a bottle of Eagle Rare for $26.99. Hard to find here in Houston.

Any of you bourbon guys who have some time in two weeks might consider joining us in LEX for our twice-annual FT KY party weekend. Link in my signature. 16 people so far, plus some of my local friends.

Also a trip to Keeneland, a gorgeous thoroughbred track, visits to bourbon distilleries, etc.
Fly to LEX, SDF, or CVG.

Weller 107 for Sunday at the Masters. Still working down a set of 3 bottles I stumbled upon at a random NC ABC store last year (never seen it at any ABC store in NC since).

One of my favorite and the QPR is unreal when you can get it at ABC retail prices instead of secondary (think I paid $27-30 per)
