What is the best Summertime Whiskey?

It’s summertime and it is incredibly hot this year. Many people don’t look to whisky as a summertime beverage and many whiskies do hit that full body spot to warm our hearts in the winter. But when I think of whiskey in the summer, I think of bourbon. That lovely beverage with a sweet corn base that is only American made. The reason bourbon is so popular during the summer is because it works so well on ice, yet still drinks well neat. Move over world it’s summertime and bourbon time.

What: August will be a bourbon bounce.

Lexington Bourbon (Kentucky)
Soldier Valley Bourbon (Nebraska)
Troubadour Bourbon (Texas)
Breaker Bourbon (California)
Ezra B. 12 year Bourbon (Kentucky)

When: Saturday, August 13, 8-10pm

Where: Jeff’s Place- 7001 S. Connie Ave.

Ten on May 10

Sioux Falls Whisky Society is upping the ante on awesomeness. On May 10 we will be offering 10 different whiskies. Imagine getting to sample from among 10 premium bottles: single malt, bourbon, rye, what have you. For a twenty dollar bill you get five tickets to try the five drams you find most enticing.

It’s for a good cause too: all proceeds go toward Eastern South Dakota Scottish Athletes. It’s the organization that promotes caber tossing in kilts. ESDSA (http://www.esdsa.org/) is spearheaded by our friend Jeff, who has been gracious in hosting SFWS at his house regularly. Let’s help a brother out by showing up on May 10 with a bunch of friends and bidding in the auction at the end of the night. Some of you also have a bottle you’d be willing to donate. Please respond if you’re willing to enrich the culture of whiskey-drinkers and kilt-wearers through a gift of a bottle. We have a few already.
