Choosing a Whiskey for Derek Jeter’s Final Game


O Captain! My Captain!

Twas only yesterday you were a young lad, roaming the hallowed grounds at short in old Yankee Stadium.


You gave us so many memorable moments for which we shall never be able to repay you.

  • The Dive
  • His Game-Winning World Series HR vs. Arizona
  • The Jeffery Mayer Home Run against Baltimore
  • The Flip

In tribute, I even forced my poor pooch to don his jersey for every playoff Yankee game.


And game after game, #2 delivered.

But alas, now his run as a ballplayer is coming to an end.

Although this season was a disappointing bummer for the Bronx Bombers, make no mistake …


So how shall I shall I spend the wee minutes remaining in his final game in the Bronx, and the road games in Beantown against the dreaded LAST PLACE Boston Red Sox ?

Drunk and with a tall dram of whisky of course …

But with which one?

I could do a dram an inning, but NAH …..

It wouldn’t fit, the captain was a class act.

ONE team for his whole career

The least I can do is stick with one bottle for 9 innings.

Perhaps you have the same dilemma.

If you’re on the fence about this one, don’t worry.

The Whisky Jerk has got you covered.

I’ve put together some options suited to meet every whisky drinker’s needs.


Woodford Reserve
A classy American bourbon. What every bourbon should aspire to be. About $60.
Whistle Pig
100 proof, rye whiskey aged for 10 years. Hard nosed and gritty rye Plays its heart out every day. Leaves it all on the line.

Redbreast 15
Smooth Irish whiskey that always comes through for in the clutch.  55$ or thereabouts.

Jack Daniels Old No. 7 (Budget Selection)
Twas Frank Sinatra’s favorite whiskey, so you can tip your hat to the Chairman and Jetes at a reasonable price courtesy of your local liquor store.

These are my selections, but what about you?

What will you be drinking during Jeter’s final games in pinstripes?
