What libation for Thanksgiving?

Postby Ganga » Wed Nov 24, 2010 1:27 am

Well, Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I thought I would see what thoughts you good folks have for having with the meal. Usually it is turkey and ham with the fixings and I have not been told otherwise. Give a vote and then respond with some more specifics. I will let you know what I had with the meal.

I voted for Bourbon as that is what I will have this Thursday (wife is working so it is just littleman and me) but when I have Thanksgiving dinner (two of them, one Friday with the in-laws and Sunday with my family) it will be wine (pinot noir and chardonnay) and beer.

It's a US holiday, gotta be something that represents the "Spirit" of that nation. Voted Bourbon of course.

It will be wine. I still can't bring myself to eat a meal with any type of Whisky. I am not sure what wine since I will not be at my house but whatever it is it will be a lot.

Ok, since it has been mentioned that it should be US based, what about a rye vs a bourbon?

Perfect for "post turkey" consumption is Dalmore Mackenzie. This elixir has subtle complex flavors of dried fruit and green gages which pairs well with the traditional - normal roasted turkey and/or as an after dinner libation!
Slainte! :D

Packed up a little bit of three different whiskies. Hirsch Rye, Jacob's Well Bourbon and Daviess County Bourbon. It will be a good turkey dinner. :thumbsup:

Nice Ganga, I am going to have some Old Potrero Rye (probably the closest whiskey out there to what the Pilgrims would have drank) tonight before moving on to the bourbon. :iwbrnt:

You'd think the Buffalo Trace White Dog would be the closest thing since at the time they weren't really putting a large emphasis on aging.
