    As for Burbon- Eagle Creek.
    Tomato, potato....

    Eagle Rare, 10 year old, single barrel is what we have. No idea how I got that so wrong.

    I want to get a bottle of Buffalo Trace and a bottle of Weller Antique 107- they were the other two that we had at a tasting this past week that we thought was outstanding. So happy Derby afterday.

    I am now rooting for Manny Pacquiao. Anyone who aligns himself with Justin Beiber deserves to get knocked out.

    Had a mint julep today (Maker's was the bourbon).
    It all depends on what you are looking for. I'm not a fan of rye, since it's a little so spicy for me, and Eagle Creek is nice and smooth with good flavor from the oak. And it's not bitter to me.

    My preference is to drink stuff that I can drink neat.

    Keg beer gives me the headaches these days, although I've never been a fan of tequila.
    That was a pretty entertaining fight between Alvarez and Mosley. Impressive that Mosley looked so spry up until the end. Almost looked like Alvarez didn't want to hurt Mosley too much and would pull back in a lot of rounds.
