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!

Today's Twitter Poetry - In case you missed it.

Today I was challenged by The Whiskey Mistress  to use Uberfacts' word of the day, "pandiculation" three times. Finding it difficult to resist a challenge, here are the three poems I wrote using pandiculation. No, I wasn't drinking.

One admission, after several readings of the first poem, I decided to make one minor edit. I think the word "sheets" flows better than "covers."  I also added a title to the second poem, in case the reader misses to subject of the poem. Keep in mind, these are tweets.


I gazed upon my whiskey girl, her form aglow and sated.
She slipped from underneath my sheets, rose, and pandiculated.

#2  The Brat

The loathsome brute, semblance of hate, He moans, he farts, pandiculates.
His richness smelt, his cry discerned, the diaper changed, no lesson learned.

#3 A Haiku

Cup void of amber whiskey,
The King yields to bed.

There you go, enjoy. Yep, this is why Whiskey Girl drinks.

Two Years... Just Getting Started!

Whiskey: Jack Daniel’s Rested Tennessee Rye Whiskey

Two years isn't much time to fully develop, but it is plenty of time to begin revealing potential.  I am very excited to try Jack Daniel’s Rested Tennessee Rye. Being a huge fan of rye whiskeys, I was thrilled to see that the Jack Daniel Distillery was sharing a special limited release of this work in progress.

Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller Jeff Arnett explains, “We hope they’ll remember that, as good as this new offering is – it’s still just a taste of what’s to come.”

Reported to have a taste that is a collection of fruitiness and vanilla and a spicy aroma of rye spice, oak spice, clove and black pepper.

I am heading out right now to pick up a bottle for another two year celebration.

Enjoy this limited release! I know I will.
