IW Harper 15yr #bourbon - finally opened this a few weeks ago and like it, but it isn't your typical ultra aged bourbon. Lots of barrel char, grain/corn, orange and lemon up front. Gets creamier with time and just a bit of that vanilla/caramel/brûlée you'd expect but not tannic at all. Not for everybody but worth at least trying
When you find 1792 Full Proof for retail while on vacation, you take glamour shots by the pool. Then you drink it. 🥃 There was a photo involving Jake's salon quality hair but it's too risqué for Instagram. So you get this tame pic instead 👨🎤
2 oz. OOLA Waitsburg Bourbon Whiskey⠀
3/4 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice⠀
1 tsp. Simple Syrup⠀
Shake all ingredients with ice, strain into glassware and garnish with a lemon wheel and a maraschino cherry. 🍋🍒
Michter's, Michter's on the wall... Two beauts here, with their 10 year old bourbon and 10 year old rye.
And why choose between a couple of great things if you don't have to? Let's crack em both.
As a great Cubs player once said- "Let's drink two!" (or something like that...)
I was upset when Tullamore D.E.W. discontinued my favorite 10 Year Single Malt. Someone must have heard me complaining and tacked on an extra 4 years to this whisky finished in bourbon, port, madeira and sherry casks. So much delicious green apple to this one.
I've learned that solitude is priceless. The quietness healing. So important it is to turn off the world...to be in presence with self. There's no stress at this moment, and I'm at peace.
Continuing on with bourbon week. I decided today to featured a cocktail I've seen on the internet so much but was always too nervous to make. Tonight we are having a Paper Airplane Cocktail. This drink is made with: Bourbon, Amaro, Aperol, and Lemon Juice. Full disclosure, I should have used Amaro Nino but I used Amaro CioCiaro. #bushwick#barbuswick#bourbon#bourboncocktails#cocktails#aperol#amaro#paperairplane#recipe

You can't feel my anger, you can't feel my pain.
You can't feel my torment, driving me insane.
I can't fight these feelings, they will bring me pain.
You can't take away, make me whole again.
