Son of a Bourbon is the first in our newly branded line of fun and versatile Whiskeys.
S.O.B. was distilled from a 70% corn mash and that was "doubled aged". It was first aged in New American Oak barrels and then finished in Napa Valley Port Casks to give it the exquisite and unique flair for which NVD Whiskeys are known.
Robust yet fun. Elegant yet easy-drinking. Enjoy!
Ours was the opposite of that.
We met on, wait for it, LinkedIn. The most unromantic website on Earth. A few messages, a few emails, a few texts, a few phone calls later and we're talking about everything under the sun.
A few weeks later, on my birthday, I arrive home to a small box on my doorstep. Totally unexpected. A bottle of S.O.B. Bourbon. Unbelievably thoughtful, precious, wonderful and completely in synch with how everything had progressed so far.
I'd like to say that I saved it so that we could share it together. Or that I carefully rationed it to last weeks, one delicate sip at a time.
Hell, no. I downed it in a week. Best damn bourbon I've ever had and probably will ever have. Trust me, she understands. That's why we're heading back to NVD for more. She needs her own stash.
