Ho Ho Ho!

Are you looking for a gift for that whiskey enthusiast in your life?

Sure you can buy them a bottle of their favorite, or perhaps do a little research and introduce them to something new, but here's some advice from the Whiskey King that perhaps you haven't thought of:

Most of the major distilleries have online stores that offer clothing and novelty items with their logos or brands on the item. Some are pretty plain but most have unique and cool items that make great gifts or stocking stuffers.
Check out this cool Buffalo Trace belt buckle

For example, there is a little someone in my life that loves on that Buffalo Trace bourbon! She can't get enough. So I visited Buffalo Trace's website and found their online gift store. Now I'm not saying if I bought her something or not. I'm just saying they have some cool stuff that I wouldn't mind finding under my Christmas tree. Here are two examples of items I like.

Or maybe a Buffalo Trace t-shirt

So take a little time, do a little research, be creative, and surprise that loved one with more than just a bottle of the same ol' same ol'.

Then again, a bottle of their favorite whiskey is never going to disappoint. :-)

While we're on the topic of online shopping, should you decide to buy something from Amazon during this holiday season, why not click on one of the Whiskey King's banners and send a little love our way.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy New Year, and many happy returns.

Music and Whiskey Pairing: Jameson Irish Whiskey and The White Buffalo

Hey! Pay attention. This is important. Maybe you haven't noticed him yet, but you are missing out!

It's time to learn more about Jake Smith, a.k.a. The White Buffalo. There have been a handful of his songs featured in the FX series, Sons of Anarchy, that I really liked, plus he has covered some old classics like House of the Rising Sun on the show, but I didn't take note of his new album until he appeared on the Adam Carolla podcast last year.  After hearing him sing "Don’t You Want It," I immediately went out and bought the album “Shadows, Greys & Evil Ways.  There is not a single track that disappoints.  The manner in which the songs tie together to tell a story of love, war, disappointment, hard lives, and harder drinking has kept me playing this album over and over again.  I can't seem to get enough.

Next Friday night, I get to see The White Buffalo live at the Fonda Theater in L.A.  I am so excited! But for tonight, I plan to "prime the pump" with a bottle of Jameson and The White Buffalo playlist on Pandora.

I strongly encourage you to check out his songs on YouTube.  Here he is sing "John Jameson."

Cheers and happy Friday!
