Muslims luv the stuff - they were to be parting gifts
Dusting off my Bourbon Ping List. At least the Speaker had some good taste in bourbon - Maker’s Mark
I mean, is there such a thing as BAD Kentucky Bourbon?
Answer: The list ^did^ include Jim Beam.
Ahhhh, not a big fan. Gimme that good old Tennessee sour mash.
Oh add me to your list..
Everything that Judicial Watch touches turns out to bite them....they are the most HAPLESS group ever....and I USED to give money to them!
ooooooh. good point.
JB Goes in the radiator ;-)
My dad used to be a distiller for Seagrams ;-)
That is a standard bar set-up. Why the Speaker should be drinking on our dime is another question.
Makers Mark is OK, maybe a little thin for my tastes. Give me WT 101 or Buffalo Trace anytime. Still, a person who likes Bourbon can’t be all bad.
I’m down to the dregs of my current bottle. Time to refresh...
I’m with you on the WT 101, but will substitute Woodford Reserve for the Buffalo Trace...
And flying on a large jet at our expense as well.
Aaaah, but did she have any chocolate milk aboard?
