In New Orleans IT IS ALL ABOUT THE BOURBON

In New Orleans IT IS ALL ABOUT THE BOURBON

Which bourbon pairs well with a wedding? Explicitly what should I taste since I am on my way to officiate the wedding for Susi and Reuben? Yes, I am also, ordained via the internet, official title Friar Bob)   Since the wedding is in New Orleans, The Bourbon House, on the corner of  Iberville and Bourbon, was an obvious choice to taste a new bourbon. Success, I found John B. Stetson – straight bourbon whiskey 84 proof distilled in Kentucky. A delightful woody taste with hints of caramel and vanilla it is the perfect pre-ceremony bourbon. With extreme difficulty,  I held myself to one shot on ice since I had to maintain pure thoughts, well as a Pastor. By the way, the Bourbon House serves some of the best Gumbo.

The wedding couple, Susi and RJ invited me to commence their life in wedded bliss. With kind of a cool connection, Susi was born in Switzerland, my Grandfather was born in Switzerland and RJ is a faithful Rugby player and I tried for twenty years to play Rugby.
