    Listen: while bars are fine and well enough a place to partake in bourbon, whiskey was meant to be drank beneath the stars. Yet an open field free of air pollution, perhaps mountainside, is sometimes hard to come by. 

    Leave the Christmas lights to your suburban college dorm room, and bring the skies down to your little box in some city with these mesmerizing star lights. Lean back, pour yourself another, and enjoy your cloudless view.

    Gift a Whiskey Drinker: an elegant flask

    With the holidays looming, you need not scramble around town attempting to round up gifts that strike the precarious balance of being both useful & meaningful. The Book of Bourbon has got this. This December, gift ideas will be rolling out. Sit back and sip.

    Flasks are the princes of whiskey gifts. They can pair well with a fine bottle, or stand alone. They come in a range of prices. They can be elegant or more comical. They can often be monogrammed to add personal flair. They are endlessly useful. They can gifted in a plethora of contexts, for wedding favors or graduates or birthdays or farewell gifts… I cannot think of an occasion a discreet flask wouldn’t really be appreciated. This year, forgo the plain silver flask and take advantage of the seemingly endless iterations available

    This octopus flask is simple and brilliant.

    Gift a Whiskey Drinker: a Maker’s Mark cigar

    [Start with an excellent bottle of bourbon, sure, but make it worthwhile. HERE you’ll find some clever tsotchkes & knickknacks that will become indispensable to the whiskey enthusiast.]

    Back in ’69, some refined cigar aficionados put several bourbons to the task of pairing well with a fine  cigar. Of Maker’s Mark, the editor wrote: “The solidly medium-bodied Maker’s shows orange, vanilla and caramel flavor, with a sweetness informed by molasses and maple sugar. The woody finish is zesty and effervescent. The light Macanudo faltered next to the bourbon, but the other three cigars made a very impressive pairing with Maker’s. The Padrón tasted even sweeter in that context, the Monty balanced well, and the Fuente seemed more leathery and full-bodied.” 

    Nearly half a century later, that experience has been condensed into one single unit: the Maker’s Mark cigar. The long-leaf tobacco hails from the Dominican Republic, where I then believe it is infused with a late summer Kentucky breeze on a hillside.
