This weekend I am going on my Annual…scratch that, 18 month….scratch that, every once in a while…Nah, Once in a blue moon guys weekend with my two best friends Mike and Lance. The last time we did this I made a big mistake. I bought Wild Turkey Bourbon, which is a solid choice, but Mike and Lance didn’t think so. So this time I said I would supply the Whiskey. This is a cinch because I have tons of Bourbon and Rye and Scotch Whisky to choose from. But wait, I have a ton to choose from….
See last time we did this it was about 21 months ago, and I literally had no bourbon at home. I had just finished my last bottle of knob creek. This time I’m a blogger that blogs mostly about Whiskey…I must have 40 or 50 whiskeys to choose from. All with one or two drinks taken out of them…Lots of hooch! How can this be a bad thing you ask? Well I can’t bring it all, so what do I bring?
I figured there are some pretty easy divisions. I only have one bottle of Scotch Whisky right now, so that goes. I have several wheat bourbons, and many many rye bourbons, and a few bottles of rye. So do I bring a few of each? Do I bring my best bourbons? What if they like them? What if they drink them all? I’ll have to restock! Do I bring a range of bourbon styles? Lower shelf, upper shelf, mid shelf? Should I buy some new stuff just for the weekend?
So many ways I could go here you can see my dilemma. So I thought I would bring this to the brain trust at B&WB and let you give me advice. Should I try to wow them with all the progress I’ve made in my whiskey selection? If you remember they weren’t enamored with the selection I produced last time. What would you do? What should I bring?
By the way I’m bringing the Beer too…I have a similar problem as my brother.
