True enough, Paul-Marcel, but it is there for storage purposes only. For drinking purposes we take it over to Roger's.

That's a good call!

I've always thought the three phases of drinking are: drunk, drunker and handcuffs.

Interesting how they taste different when drunk in different ways.

I like the Woodford best for sipping / drinking. But the Elijiah Craig better for shots.

And unless you're "swishing and spitting", the first (or maybe second) taste will likely be the most accurate assessment of quality.

I remember my first visit to Napa Valley (as a much much younger man). We visited maybe ten wineries and I tasted several different varieties at each. By the end of the day, I had lost interest in whites and favored the really strong reds, this even with swishing and spitting. So we bought a case of what tasted good at 5 PM. Opened a bottle a few days later and it was awful.

That's a lesson I have never forgotten.

If you guys are drinking something and then spitting it out, maybe that should be your first clue that it doesn't taste very good!

I stopped at Woodford Reserve on my way through Kentucky last month and took the tour. I bought a bottle of the "Double Oak" which is outstanding! (And not available in Kansas.)
