Another Whisky Song
« on: March 17, 2019, 12:14:43 AM »
sometimes wikipedia takes you down the rabbit hole.....
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Bourbon,_One_Scotch,_One_Beer

I knew George Thorogood based his song on John Lee Hooker, but didn't know about Amos Milbrun. Anyway, it got me longing for a Boilermaker, or maybe a Boilermaker Squared (as there's two whiskies involved), so tonight it's the following....

one Bourbon -
Four Roses Single Barrel - a high rye bourbon at 50% abv (but I used a little water), sweet, but not too sweet

one Scotch -
Glenmorangie Lasanta - great example of wood finish - primary aging in bourbon casks, and then two years finish in sherry casks (both olorosso & Pedro Ximenez)

one Beer -
Ola Dubh 12yr - wanted to finish with lots of flavor, it's 8% and aged in Highland Park whisky casks as a bonus

if this inspires you, let us know what combos you come up with.
