Tatoosh Bourbon – The Review

And….we’re back.    We recently were able to acquire a bottle of Tatoosh Bourbon, as pictured to the right.  This bourbon is from the Tatoosh Distillery in Seattle, although all the making and bottling is done at the Bendis Distillery in Bend, Oregon (a distillery that makes a couple of lovely gins).  I am unclear […]

Old Forester Birthday Bourbon – The Review

Every year around Christmas-time (a coincidence?) my birthday comes around.  Sadly, if I want to drink bourbon, all bourbon is much younger than I.  I could switch to Scotch, win a million dollars, and drink booze older than I, but this has not yet come to pass.

"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing." ~Jerome K. Jerome

"How solemn and beautiful is the thought that the earliest pioneer of civilization, the van-leader of civilization, is never the steamboat, never the railroad, never the newspaper, never the Sabbath-school, never the missionary -- but always whiskey!" ~Mark Twain
