Not saying anything against slivovitz, you understand: [Apr. 22nd, 2014|10:04 pm]

Much as I like slivovitz, I have to say, oh, bourbon, I missed you over Passover.

That's... kind of adorable.

I don't have any temporary prohibitions, myself, and didn't like pork much to begin with, so I can't quite identify, but.

Other than that both are distilled spirits, I don't really think it's fair or appropriate to compare slivovitz with bourbon any more than it would be appropriate to compare bourbon with brandy. Also, I realize that slivovitz is kind of traditional but aren't there some other distilled spirits that are arguably better that would generally be acceptable as kosher for Passover? Calvados perhaps?

I got a bottle of Calvados for Pesach, too -- I even found a brand that the Beit Din of London had certified as KvP. I drank them both, and like them both... but neither are bourbon.

High West's Campfire bourbon/whiskey thing is surprisingly great.
