    Too hard to narrow down to one. I’ll go with George T. Stagg for a bourbon and HIghland Park 18 for a scotch. Both are great for sipping in front of the fire on a cold winter evening.

    Sazerac 6yr Rye in a Sazerac — (IMHO, the Sazerac tastes better with Pernot than with absinthe).

    Elmer T Lee for a great value, Maker’s 46 for a medium priced budget and Goerge T Stagg – if you can find it. Had some barrel strength Weller – wow, nice. Old Rip Van Winkle 15 is one of my old time favorites – very oaky and smokey.

    It is funny, I am not a big fan of Buffalo Trace label – but their boutiques are some of my faves.

    There is nothing better than to sit by the fire with someone pleasant to talk and gawk at with a glass of Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit
