Thanksgiving cheer via this flight of holiday spirit on the night before!
Boone County 10-Year, a 90.8-proofer, is definitely something to cheer about. It’s the distillery’s oldest bottling to date which was selected bottled exclusively for my friends at the Big A Bottle Shop in Marietta.
Old Forest Signature, 100-proofer, is my go-to Bourbon.
I’ve been singing the praise of Henry McKenna Bottled-in-Bond since I tried it in 2011. Its bona fides include 10-Years, 100-proof and single barrel.
The new J.W. Kelly Double Oaked, a single barrel Bourbon at 109-proof, is a big winner. Our barrel was picked by the former managing partner of Signatory Vintage Whisky Ed Kohl.
Rare Breed is a 116.8° barrel-strength expression from Wild Turkey. Why did I select it? Because (1) it’s delicious! and (2) turkey (wild or domestic) is appropriate for Thanksgiving.
Now (drum-roll) for a big finish: A Midwinter Nights Dram. It is an annual Rye release from the good folks at High West. Act 7 Scene 2 Edition, the 2019 release, comes in at 98.6-proof. I suggest that you begin searching for a bottle (or more).
I’m confident that our flight will create some of those magical synergies for which we always aim. So, do please join us at FREIGHT and do bring a visiting relative as “Good whiskey is made great when shared among friends”.
