To my friends in the Great White North, Happy Thanksgiving. I know this is a day early, but just in case you are too busy to check Connosr tomorrow, I wanted to send my greetings in time for you to see it.

Any of you having a line up of drams for your Thanksgiving? Will you hide the good stuff from friends and family, or break it out? ^_^

Thanks. As far as I’m concerned the whole weekend is a holiday. Not on call, no obligations except to my family. Took the kids to the zoo while my wife is cooking the biggest turkey I’ve ever seen.

I will be happy to break out a dram... if any of our guests will join me.

@Nozinan Of couse, the holiday is more than just a day. I hope you enjoy your turkey, but more importantly, enjoy a dram or two. Gobble gobble, sip sip.

@ajjarrett, I joined family and friends for a lovely meal, bringing a smoked leg ham to supplement the roasted turkey along with a bottle of CC 100% Rye (thanks @Nozinan). The Rye was appreciated by those who drink whisky. There was enough wine to float a battleship ...the other available whiskies were Tin Cup, Crown Royal Deluxe, and Glenfiddich 12 YO.

@paddockjudge A wonderful line up of whisk(e)y. I haven't tried too many Rye whiskeys, nor have I tried Tin Cup, so I might have to find a place I can try them.

Again, Happy Thanksgiving.

@ajjarrett, as an invited guest, I graciously enjoyed what was available; bringing a top-shelfer isn't always the smoothest move.

@paddockjudge So true. There is a time and place for a top shelver, and I don't think I would bring one out for a holiday. Of course, it all depends on the guests and if I am hosting or not. I know when spending a holiday with my family, I don't have to hide what I bring, even if it is from my top shelf, since no family member (immediate family) drinks whisk(e)y. Okay, there is one brother, and I just bring it out when he isn't in the house.

I don’t drink enough whisky to waste my drams on bottom shelfers. I an sipping Redbreast 12CS tonight after a hearty dinner.

I don’t generally bring whisky to parties (tastings excepted) and if there isn’t anything I like I’ll abstain. At home I have minimal bottom shelf stuff so I am careful not to offer anything to people who will add gingerale to my rare rye.

My uncle adds ice to his whisky but I will gice him the best of what I have.

@Nozinan A good approach to the various situations. and definitely a good choice on the Redbreast 12yr CS.

@ajjarrett it’s interesting. I have not tasted Nadurra in years, but Redbreast 12 CS is the closest flavour to my memory of it.

@Nozinan I will definitely have to compare the two (I assume is the one you are referring to the 6yo Nadurra) to see what similarities, if any, I can detect. I will certainly report back on this.

Well, I had to make sure I can do this again. Yes, one day early, just as I did when I started this thread.

To all the Connosrs in the Great White North, Happy Thanksgiving.
