Another Great Holiday Nobler Gathering

December 21, 2012

No better way to celebrate the end of the world year then to gather with the Noblers! For our annual Holiday Gathering we shared a bottle of Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey for the second year in a row and once again were blown away by the smoothness and balance this blend brings to the table. For me, it’s one of the more enjoyable whiskey’s on the market, hands down, and while the price tag doesn’t exactly make it an everyday pour, this I am sure will be a staple in many of the Noblers’ home bars in the future.

As we have grown in size over the past year, it was only fitting to add another bottle to the mix. But instead of going double down on the Midleton, we grabbed a bottle of E.H. Taylor Straight Rye Whiskey. You might remember me posting about the Barrel Proof Bourbon a few weeks ago which at 135 proof packed some serious punch. Their Straight Rye Whiskey pays homage to E.H. Taylor’s involvement in passing the Bond Act of 1897 as one of the first steps in American Whiskey production focused on guaranteeing quality to the consumer. “Bottle in Bond” signified a whiskey bottled at 100 proof from a single distillery from a single season stored in bonded warehouses for at least four years. This holds true for this modern-day bottle which is intensely flavorful and warming. This is a Rye drinkers heaven.

As for the rest of the night, we feasted on a pork shoulder and poblano stew, shared in a few special beers brought by Nobler Luke, and celebrated another great year at the Nobler with a little gift exchange. We even had a virtual visit from one of our founders, Jacob, who now resides in Colorado. It was a special night!

As for the actual Holidays, I’m off to Costa Rica tomorrow for a week’s worth of paradise so my posting will most likely be limited. But I’ll be back just in time for New Years with a lot more exciting things coming to the Nobler in 2013!

Happy Holidays!
