Sometimes, you just have to fight fire with fire.

When I purchased the MUWAT Kentucky Fire Cured (or KFC), my initial thought was to pair it with a Kentucky bourbon to keep with the theme. However, a new option presented itself as soon as I removed the cigar from it’s cellophane and gave it a good sniff. This was going to be fiery. A bourbon would do a good job of tempering the smoke, but this cigar was blended and cured to enhance the smell and taste of woodsmoke.

Happy Whiskey Day dear readers!

As befitting the recent valiant performance of Team USA, today’s selection returns us back to the Red, White, and Blue in the form of Bird Dog Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey.

True, this cloudy whiskey, with a late wave of peat and a sweet smell of cinnamon mixed with the slightest touch of ginger, is simple, but it is also a reminder that good things do not necessarily need complexion.

This is a whiskey you drink whilst gazing at a Southern sunset with good friends; the once in July opportunities that come maglie calcio online once in a bottle. You would not buy Bird Dog to impress someone, just as the person counting stars cares little about the final tally.

This dog bites better at room temperature than on ice, as it keeps the flavor throughout the entire sip, but otherwise an enjoyable, if thoroughly par product for your consideration.

As always, further research is needed…
