too much hurry prompted some clumsiness in the kitchen and i spilled a bit of knob creek bourbon on my counter. in an inexplicable act of savagery, despite my OCD, i simply wiped the liquid off with my hand. as i sat down to resume the film i was watching (i dare not say what in fear of violating B&B political discourse restrictions), the wonderful scent that lingered triggered the idea in question.
we have bay rum, which i have seen fairly accurately described as a combination of elderly man (peepaw) + medicine cabinet. it's also a relatively vulgar spirit in the grand scheme of things and i actually place kentucky bourbon (that which is above entry-level) quite ahead of scotch in a dollar-for-dollar (or pound-for-pound) comparison, perhaps even outright as a concept.
now to the the matter at hand. if i simply remill some unscented tallow-based soap, soaked in the liquid, will it preserve the smell? i somehow doubt this. if not, what needs to be done? what are these cunning bay rum pirates doing? i am glad to invest time and effort into the project if someone with expertise can assist.
