Not drinking today... yet, because Bailey's in my coffee doesn't count, right?
But the last couple of days. Holy smokes, bunch of clients in on a Christmas record and we went through a few bottles of Knob Creek and Elijah Craig. Both bourbon and rye.
Curiously, no hangovers. Why? Higher quality? I'm asking you jacobamerritt and anyone else who would care to answer.
Hmm. Were you also drinking water? Maybe eating fatty foods high in vitamin B? Pacing yourself well enough? Those are all the obvious factors. Also drinking things 'neat' actually helps - usually its added sugars that causes the hangover. So make a few old fashioneds, or manhattans with bad vermouth... cheap wine (which often adds sugar)... headache. And yeah- pound a glass of water between drinks.
Going to bed after a Derby Club, pour of rum, a nice mai tai, and another pour of rum feeling fine. Ate a good dinner, and drank lots of water
Just got a 17 year George Dickel Store Pick. I've had one before and it has the Dickel Funk that some hate. It's def a thing...Anyway, this one is a little different. Got to taste before I bought. It's exceptionally smooth - you can tell it's an old whiskey. Great sipper for around $65.

Just reaching the last of a Dickel 15 year. I'm not always in the mood for it but I really enjoy it when I am. I've also enjoyed the Dickel BIB in mixed drinks...that kinda funky flavor adds some low mids to manhattan/old fashioned sorts of recipes.
