DC Metro Bourbon Tasting

Unread postby Bourbon Joe » Sat Nov 08, 2008 2:24 pm

Greg Gilbert organized a 5 BiB bourbon blind tasting last night. It was held at Reid's house in Clifton Virginia. There were a lot of guys there and I finally got to meet Greg gilbert and Stoopsie. We all had a great time. Thanks to everyone involved in making this tasting a success. BTW Jake Parrot picked 'em all. Your humble writer only got 3 out of 5. Great bourbons and a great time and it's always nice to get together with "The Bunghole".

ima had a great time! Thanks to Reid and Greg for putting it all together. Many thanks to Bourbon Joe and his generousity that made my attendance possible.
It was good to meet Doug Phillips, and Emerald Adir for the first time.

Looks like a fun time was had by all. What bourbons made the rounds at this tasting? Were there any winners to the bunch?

Some people see the glass as half full, some see half empty, but I prefer to drink straight from the bottle.

D*N*D aka Bunghole receives "special" attention from Bourbonjoe to insure proper secrecy during his assignment.

Jeff,
Things are a little hazy from that nite but there were five bourbons in the blind flight. AAA, 89 Dant, VOB, Old Fitz (KY-1), and ???? Like I said, a bit hazy. Jake Parrott got all five. I had 3 out of 5. Don't know about the rest of the gang. I do remember it was a great time though.

Great photo's Howie! I am glad that Bunghole, aka "*Do*Not*Delete*" was along for the mission. His superior tasting skills surely complemented all even this skilled group of spies. Even so, I did not see any real rough characters in the opponents mix. Maybe if some McCormick bonded or even some Old Crow disguised as a bonded whiskey would have made this a dangerous mission. As it was I would say your foes were all smooth operators with some good taste.
