    Default bourbon

    just poured myself a little Baker's Bourbon with a splash of water - - thinking about the trail and hiking and so forth. Cheers.

    mmm - I was doing bourbon and cheez-its but I could probably scare up some dark chocolate to try - good idea George
    I'm pretty much blowing my healthy, in moderation, trail runner athlete thing today to wit:

    i woke up at 8am
    I drank coffee and read until about 10am
    I had leftover thai food for lunch and dinner
    about 4 oclock, I went to a local pub and had a beer
    I ate boca burgers, kale and black eyed peas with my family about 8 pm
    I had a glass of wine with my wife but then we ran out and she went off to read and play on facebook
    I opened a bottle of bourbon my Dad gave me - Bakers - and got on Whiteblaze
    maybe I'll go for a run tomorrow but I'm pretty much a slack looser tonight.

    I'm not a bourbon drinker, but this evening I will open up the bottle of Scotch that my dad gave me and have a wee dram while thinking about the Trail. (It's a Laphroig 18. Mmm. High on the hog tonight.)

    Drinking bourbon at the end of a day on the trail beats drinking bourbon and thinking about the trail. I actually spent a couple of days last weekend walking on the trail between Port Clinton and Swatara Gap, PA. I carried a small plastic flask of Buffalo Trace which I mixed with a little spring water at the end of the day. That and a few ibuprofen led to two nights of great sleep under my tarp. Friday and Saturday were very nice. Sunday, not so much - low 30s and a hard rain.

    I brought a little spring water home and am enjoying it (with bourbon) right now.

    I'm a fan of Knob Creek myself. Tennessee Honey is good too, but it is a little sweet.

    You know I've never been much of one for the "finer things in life", but I do like me some good whiskey (and whisky)...in moderation of course. I like it so much that I've developed quite a nice collection of hard to find items as well as those highly sought after yearly releases. The great thing about whiskey and bourbon in particular is that most of it is good...even the "mid level to bottom shelf" stuff like Evan Williams, Fighting Cock and Old Granddad 114 to name a few. Sure they aren't as complex as the more expensive harder to get stuff, but they're still mighty tasty.

    Woodford Reserve would be my first choice but Berserker is correct, most all those Kentucky, and a few TN, gentlemen are all good. I normally just sip mine over some ice but on the trail when it's cold I like to mix a packet of spiced apple cider with about 4 oz of hot water and 6-8 oz of sour mash. The first sip takes your breath away but it's not the alcohol, just something about the way the spices and wiskey mix I guess. I dont like choccolot but I do like a sip of whiskey with those fancy choccolots with caramel filling, whiskey and choccolot just go together...goes nicely with a good cigar too.

    Same here, mine was Crown Royal until little miss Knob Creek found her way into my heart.

    Yes, and the Ardbeg UIGEADAIL is pretty freaking amazing, too. Probably the best dram I've ever had.

    No ice. Add two drops of spring water. Cigar would be nice but MD is giving me crap about my unsavory ways.
