Our friends recently redid their kitchen & have this amazing fridge. I must be old to care about fridges. But they keep their drinks in the fresh food drawer. And that is one of the many reasons we remain friends.

These arrived out of the blue today. I ordered them last summer and promptly forgot all about them. I look forward to knocking on their door this evening. If you're wondering what the hell Bob Dylan has to do with Whiskey, here's the website.

There's a third, a straight rye, which I didn't order because it was $25 more than these two. Which isn't that much in the scheme of things (or it wasn't at the time) so I'm not sure why I didn't just get all three, but here we are.

As an added bonus, they look really cool from the back, which is, of course, of the utmost importance when you're dealing with a fine whiskey.

I can report that these are both quite good. The Tennessee Bourbon is smooth and wonderful, and the Double Barrel Whiskey is potent and manly (isn't that how they describe things over at the Whisky Advocate?). I do wish I'd ponied up for the Straight Rye as well when I ordered these, but such is life.

While they are very good, I'm not sure I would buy them again. You can get some really great Bourbons in the same price range, though in less fancy bottles, and without a picture of Bob Dylan on the hang tag.

this part was funny -

"The guard house has been the source of controversy in the past. In 1989, when Dylan sought a permit to build it, Los Angeles County building and safety inspectors discovered it was not accessible by the handicapped. According to county records, the singer bypassed accessibility requirements by promising, in writing, that he “would not hire any handicapped persons” to work in it."

btw naming a whiskey etc from a song about dying?

Went to the Phillies/Yankees last night. Michelle & our frind Lisa had a few freshies while i was gone. How dare they drink without me! I took a pic of the dead soldiers but decided to also show the 2 left in the fridge because they look really really cold.

Holiday in Calabogie Ont, Canada. Whatever's in the fridge, HP sauce, milk in a bag and a Labatt Blue Light. The 2nd pic is to show how cold it is.
