Yes what Bourbon to sip as our Razorbacks battle the Evil Orange Empire of Knoxville (EOEK)
also known as University of Tennessee
and not to be mistaken for the EOEA (Evil Orange Empire of Austin) UTex (Spit)
Its hard but wherever there is Orange Arkansas blood should be boiling and
Its Off to the Races - Arkansas Thoroughbred filled with balance Hogs vs Tennessee Walkers as they run the ball with a solower offense
I recommend a more gentlemanly elixir that two fine Mountain Men (or woman) would share while watching a contest
The History of the two states demands a more refined glass
so in this case I recommend Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon
Brew Haus says of Blanton’s Bourbon;
"Taken from the center-cut or middle sections of the famous Warehouse H, Blanton’s Original Single Barrel was once designated for ambassadors, dignitaries, and Colonel Blanton’s family and friends.
The taste profile is sweet, with notes of citrus and oak. The creamy vanilla nose is teased with caramel and butterscotch, all underscored by familiar baking spices such as clove, nutmeg, or cinnamon. Blanton’s Original set the standard for single barrel bourbons in 1984.
Best served neat or on the rocks."
I highly agree with this review and recommend it as we watch our Razorbacks continue to out knife fight, Shoot and wrestle our mountain Kin and win the victory
Blanton’s is a fine Bourbon and I think it is perfect neat or on the rocks
I seem to get more vanilla notes against the spice - on the cream pecan notes its not as strong to me as it is in Woodford Double Oaked but lets save that for another mountain contest on Black Friday - so for now its Blanton’s fine Bourbon to watch this TN Long Rifle vs Arkansas Shotgun and Arkansas Toothpick vs Tn Bowie Knife - where Arkansas always owns the edge (pun intended) with Mr Blacks Knife forge the best cutting and close in fighters are always from Arkansas thats why our Arkansas National Guard Authorizes Bowie’s for its leaders
Go Hogs GO
