Angel’s Share: Musings of a bourbon sipping ACW Student

January 10, 2008

Hey, I’m blogging!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — angelshare @ 1:25 am

Well, don’t know if it is a matter of time management or a matter of thinking that I don’t have much to write about. Perhaps it was as simple as not knowing what kind of pithy name to give my blog. However, after consideration over the Christmas Holidays I decided to give blogging a go. Today, while visiting the Woodford Reserve distillery in Kentucky, it came to me……Angel’s Share!!   Angelshare is the name given to the wonderful evaporative scent within the warehouse of the Woodford distillery. “This would be a great name for a blog and would fit into one of my little luxuries in life” thought I. Don’t get me wrong….I don’t spend every waking hour thinking and drinking Woodford’s fine products. AND, I’m not a brand monogamous bourbon aficionado. Over the years I have enjoyed some fine products from Maker’s Mark, Elijah Craig and Knob Creek. I just think there is something really special about Woodford. Perhaps it’s the landscape as you drive into the site. Perhaps it’s driving by the elaborate horse farms on the way in….I don’t know….there’s just something about the place!!Over the course of the next few blog entries anyway, I hope to provide you with some of my thoughts on the historical approach that I take to some of the history of the American Civil War. In the meantime, pick up some Woodford, sit back by the fireplace and think of the Angels…..they need a share too! 🙂

  4. Chris,

    Welcome to the Civil War end of the blogosphere pool. I’ve been to many of the sources of the inspiration for blog names as well. As a UofL alum, however, I have to ask — you’re not attending that _other_ university in Lexington, are you? 8^)

  6. Hi Don,

    Don’t worry about me….I’m not attending the aforementioned University in Lexington although I do hope for good results for TN against them tonight! No Sir, I am, however, a big fan of the area up there. I really enjoy riding around near the horse farms and visiting Woodford Reserve. I also have some friends that live in Lexington and enjoy their company as well. Thanks for the welcome!

  7. Thanks Eric, I’m still getting the hang of the blog world, formatting and of course my MacbookPro and all of it’s wonders….but I like the concept and platform. Time will tell if it’s the right forum for me.

    I appreciate your welcome!
