Two of my favorite things.
A few weeks ago, a friend and fellow bourbon drinker let me know of Rocklands’s “Bourbon Club.” After (a small bit of) consideration, I agreed to join her in drinking all of the bourbons that Rocklands has .
We met up today and I ordered my meal (three meat platter with cole slaw and baked beans) and my first drink — Virginia Gentleman. My second was Rebel Yell and after some banter with the bartender, my friend and I were rewarded for starting the endeavor with free Elijah Craig 18 year. Which led to a discussion of how there are several liquors listed on their bourbon list that are definitely foul and/or not bourbon at all; but we’ll drink them (eventually) if they’re still on there when the time comes. The third friend that joined us for company was amused about our devotion to the sweet brown liquor. Several hours later, we departed and I came home to take a nap. I’m already trying to figure out when I can go back to have more pork and liquor.
