Title for The Whisky: The Whisky

“Welcome Back”

Eighteen lucky MASCers participated in our June whisky, cigar and Greek dinner at the Greek. The event was so warmly received that we’re repeating it with 6 good Bourbons, 3 GTO Dominican cigars and full Greek dinner.

Elmer T. Lee, a highly-sought bourbon, will lead-off our tasting (thanks to Harry @ Juice Box shop). This Texan will pour next 2 Texas Bourbons: Sixth Street 4 yr and Garrison Bros. single barrel. Let’s then taste Old Forester’s straight rye, a delicious 100-proofer. The featured dram is the new Old Ezra Bourbon, at 7year and 117 barrel-proof, a sourced offering from the Lux Row Distillery in Bardstown. Our final whisky is Wild Turkey’s Rare Breed, a combo of 6-, 8- and 12-year-old bourbons that’s bottled at 116.8 barrel-proof. I’ve invited GTO-owner Oscar Rodriguez, M.D., to introduce his fine Dominican Republic cigars featuring tobacco grown on his estate there. We’re quite confident that the food, cigar and whisky lineup will afford the partakers an evening to fondly remember. The only thing that we might possibly lack is the pleasure of your good company.
