A Whiskey Club established in 2003, we meet once monthly at the home of a member. We sample a whisk(e)y, scotch or bourbon that we've never tried before. We sip, smell, taste and repeat...then talk about it. Think of it as a book club for guys who really aren't in the mood to be reading books.

Buffalo Trace Single Oak Project
I was wandering around Andy's Cross Roads and noticed they had one of the Buffalo Trace Single Oak Projects. At $55 for a 375, it's pretty pricey, but if anyone is interested, it's there.

Federal Judge Says Poker Is Not Gambling
Some of you may be interested in this article I saw today: Federal Judge Says Poker Is Not Gambling
Yesterday a federal judge threw out the conviction of a Staten Island poker room operator accused of violating the Illegal Gambling Business Act (IGBA), ruling that poker does not qualify as gambling under the statute because it is primarily a game of skill.This should set a good precedent.

Apollo's Own Lot #188 Hand-Selected Bourbon
Seems the guys over at Apollo Liquor went out and got themselves a barrel of bourbon. I was thinking it might be fun to get a bottle of this although I haven't checked out the price to see if there is budget and kitty room. If someone does happen over there, let me know if you find out the price, otherwise I may try to get over there tonight. here's the text from the email for your enjoyment:
Ari, Sam, and Crew Went Bourbon Shopping and Buought a Barrel. The Bourbon is now available in all apollo stores. It is a single barrel Bourbon whiskey. Hand selected - It is a one of a kind barrel. Hurry! Once it is goneâ€”it is gone! Ari sampled 6 different barrels from the famous Barton 1792 distillery from all different areas of the barrel house. This specific barrel was aged 9.5 years and was tasted at 126 proof. It was hand bottled at 94proof. The barrel yielded 24 cases. Half of the whiskey went to the Angels Share! It has a little more rye in the mix than most Bourbons! Therefore it has a rich complex flavor without too much sweetness. Ari says, "I have been waiting since May for it to come in. It took me 30seconds to crack the first bottle and it was amazing! "I was also noticing that Ari has a blog. You can check it out here.
