This week we are going to talk about Abraham Lincoln. Oh, yes, that amazing president who ended the civil war and abolished slavery. What some of you may not know is that Abraham Lincoln was in fact a teetotaler, who’s dad worked at a distillery, supported his general’s drinking habits, and was in fact shot party because of the liquid courage that bourbon provides. He was a man who tried to distance himself from the spirit yet ended up dying partly because of it. At the end of this episode we’ll be tasting some Jefferson’s Reserve Very Old Kentucky Small Bourbon Whiskey Very Small Batch.
