Ask Doc Smooth


Posted by docsmooth on 2023/10/14

My daughter was playing the New York Times Connections the other day and asked me “Dad, what’s a limerick?”

I answered:

a limerick is a type of verse
who’s lines are forced to be terse
it may be a joke
or some fun it may poke
but writing them sure makes me curse.

So I guess that’s my superpower – limericks on queue.

Basil Hayden Dark Rye

Posted by docsmooth on 2020/08/13

With cherry, car’mel and honey,

This rye just is the bee’s knees,

With soda or rocks,

It takes off my socks,

Add rye’s spice and I’m just super pleased!

Nose soft and gentle as good flannel,

Warms hearts like I’m a mammal,

Absolutely no peat,

But it carries a heat,

That fills me with sounds of Mandel

More oak and more spice than the last,

A whiskey I surely will not pass,

But it still has bite,

And a taste I do like,

Yet more bourbon that I drink too fast.

Old Forester Bourbon

Posted by docsmooth on 2019/07/08

It has a soft side and tastes cleaner,

The corn cuts through oak like a beaver,

It’s flavor makes me

Want to order three,

But I think I’ll order something neater.

Blind Tiger Chicago bourbon

Away from Scotches I can be torn

By whiskey which is made of some corn,

I drink this bourbon neat,

Oak and rose and no peat,

It’s so smooth: when emptied I’m forlorn.

Auchentoschen virgin bourbon barrel

Posted by docsmooth on 2017/01/19

Rosy and sweet with a bit of velvet,

A taste I am sure I will not regret,

It tastes of some wood,

But surely it could,

Become a drink I won’t forget.

Alberta Rye – Dark Batch

Posted by docsmooth on 2016/06/14

Rosy and Caramel with a nice kick,
Tonight a big Rye will do the trick,
I drink over rocks,
while wearing no socks,
This glass all night firmly I will grip.

– Alberta Rye Dark Batch at home over soda. Neat, it’s beautiful, warm, and rosy on the nose.

Michter’s Rye

Spicy and beautifully sweet on the tongue,
This whiskey is amazing after a run,
It’s great on the rocks,
Don’t compare to your socks,
American rye sure can be fun!
