Big storms coming through this afternoon- plus it's up to 62F right now.  So, I am spending this afternoon putzing around in the barn, watching the storm, doing a bit of seasonal maintenance on my mower deck before I put it away.

Enjoying an Arturo Fuente and a small glass of my own whisky:

Yep, there are only a few places in town that have Raspberry Tart in stock.  They stopped production for awhile because they ran out of raspberries  :P  Word is that they should start up in a month or two, but I have a personal stock and a store I know that bought a 3 month stock as soon as they heard production was stopping  ;D ;D ;D

Not a drinker (just to get that out of the way up front). I have been taste-testing various beers over the past couple of years. As in 1 or 2 such tests per year :)  Anyway, because we got our ticket queue down to 0 tickets, the boss decided to take the team out for dinner and drinks at the local Oskar Blues. I also decided to try something so in looking over the various beers, I went with the lighter Christmas 2013 Ale (listed as a more Malty beer). I limit myself to 6% or less just because more than that gets into the 'medicine? I'm not sick!' realm. I found the Christmas Ale was more palatable than many others I've had over the past couple of years. Generally I can only take a single drink. A second drink drops into a more bitter, medicine flavor and I'll leave more than half for someone else.

Amusingly I had it on a mostly empty stomach so it hit me pretty hard (I'm a lightweight :) ). I had to hang out for a bit before I thought I was okay enough to drive. Even so, I was a bit friendlier at the game store later in chatting up the guys :D

On the positive side, I may be getting closer to knowing what I can pick when out with the guys.

See that broken limb above the bottle?  That's one of the bastards I cut up.  Straight back where the bottle neck starts you can see some of the remnants of the cut up limbs from the neighbor's yard.  Done.  Burning up some of this junk willow and enjoying a couple of these by the fire.  I'm done for today.

Several of my co-workers are fans of whiskey and we all have different types at home in our cabinets.  So, we’ve decided to get together at my house and do a tasting night.

I’m offering up hors d'oeuvres along with the following:

Bourbon:  Willett Pot Still Reserve, Makers 46, and Four Roses Single Barrel

Scotch:  Glenlivet 12 and Laphroaig 10 (single malts) along with Johnnie Walker Black (blend)

Irish:  Redbreast 12

Canadian:  Crown Royal


Our request is that they bring your favorite whiskies to share. 

This should be a good night.     :banana:

I fly Delta multiple times each week, so they almost-always bump me up to first class.  They have Woodford Reserve, which is plenty fine for in the air.  Here's how stupid my life is - I flew back from NYC last night and I'm flying back today.

PS Four Roses Single Barrel is the only bourbon I drink in my home right now.  So worth the money.

Booze Map of the World Crushes Our Spirits

America! We have some work to do.

Not only are we not trumping the world’s other superpowers in the caffeine department, we are also drinking inferior booze.

We are, apparently, one vodka-drinking nation.

News site Quartz has assembled data from Euromonitor, a market research company, to create this map showing which country prefers which spirit (when given the choice among gin, vodka, rum, whiskey, tequila, and brandy). Although more than half the world prefers whiskey to any other spirit, most Americans belly up to the bar and pick vodka.

It’s possible that vodka drinkers are smarter than our bourbon-loving staffers. Even the worst vodka apparently causes you less horrible hangovers than expensive bourbon.

Click on over for the engrossing data; apparently the Dutch are gin-drinking fiends, and Italians go for rum. If nothing else, it’ll get you in the mindset for happy hour.

Depends on whether or not the spousal unit wants to stop for a beer when I get off work or not. If she does a micro brew from the independent ale house ( http://www.independentalehouse.com/ (http://www.independentalehouse.com/)  )  if not a PBR at the local biker bar.

Busy-ass week, but a good day today.  Now I'm fooling around with the Maxim, and I'm balls deep into my own whiskey.  This batch should have aged longer, but it's what I have.   :bigok:

Friday night and all is good right?  Came home from a nice dinner with the wife to find the basement drain is backing up with the sudden thaw we are having. After the clean up, a couple bell's smitten, a couple Frankenmuth batch 69 ipa and a sierra Nevada ruthless rye p.a.  All is good in the world again.   :beerchug:

Willette is hard to find for me.  I pick it up in South Carolina when I travel to Atlanta for work.  Plus, my current 1/2 gallon won't travel well.   :D

I'll tell you what I will do.  I'll try to bring two different whiskies with me.  One of which will be Defiant (in the picture above).  This is distilled in NC in the mountains near Maggey Valley.  I find it to be quite tasty.

In exchange, I'll happily accept some samples of what you bring.   :beerchug:

Alberta Premium, straight.  It ain't no sissy drink.  If you're looking for a smooth whisky...go ask your boyfriend for one.  This stuff is strong and a bit acidic and 100% rye grain.

Once we're out of winter, this is 95% of what I drink.

http://www.artofdrink.com/ingredients/spirits/whisky/canadian-whisky/alberta-premium-rye-whisky/ (http://www.artofdrink.com/ingredients/spirits/whisky/canadian-whisky/alberta-premium-rye-whisky/)

They keep saying it's smooth...I associate smoothness with a much softer mouthfeel than AP, which is strong and peppery and rich but a bit harsh.  IMO it is the perfect whiskey.

Sheri and I went out for dinner and ended up at a local Irish pub.  They have an excellent whiskey menu and offer flights.


This is pages 1 and 2 of 4 of their whiskey menu.

visitors can't see pics , please register or login




I went with the following three (left to right in the image below): 

Midleton Very Rare Irish Whiskey -  Wow!  Due to the way the Irish triple distill, this was very smooth with a nice note of honey and nuts.  This is a damn fine whiskey.  But, at $200 a bottle, it won't make it to my cabinet anytime soon.

Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year Old Scotch - I may have found my favorite reasonably priced Scotch here.  This has all the characteristics of my type of Scotch, which includes a bit of peat, a taste of Sherry, and a warm overall feeling going down.  The follow isn't all that strong nor bitter. 

Ardbeg 10 Scotch -  This is distilled in the same region as Laphroaig and Lagavulin, the Islay region (EYE-le).  For some reason, Scotches distilled in this region are commonly referred to as "Scotch drinker's Scotch."  If you're into the earthiness of Scotch, this is your region.  The peat from this area used to roast the grains is VERY earthy and that is passed off into the taste.  Personally, it's too earthy for me.  I don't mind earthy drinks.  But, I prefer more of a woodsy, soil, leathery taste.  These Scotches have a heavy grass smell and taste and come across as very medicinal to me.

I knew I needed to save the Islay region Scotch for last as the others I have had in the past have a very strong and long follow that's hard to shake and seem to dominate anything else you consume.  After finishing this flight, I had a burger with a pint of Guinness.

We did better than I thought.  The interesting thing- about 1/3 of the schools have Science Olympiad class that starts when school does.  About 1/3 starts meeting extra-curricularly in the fall.  We start with a few dedicated kids in December, we have one trial run in February and the competition in March.  Usually we place between 12-15, this year we were 19th out of 43.  I'm good with that, as were my kids.  Top 10 in a couple events.   :thumbsup:

So, the hangover seemed to work!   :lol:

Barley's Brewing Hop Envy IPA. Pretty good, not that resinous swill that passes for IPA so often these days.

The barman said tomorrow I should go to Seventh Son and Fourstring. Since the weather forecast for eastern PA tomorrow is lightning and giant hail I'm gonna stay an extra night in Columbus. Oh boy, Firkin Friday!

A few of us left work and headed to Single Brother's Bar where I enjoyed a Bulleit Frontier Whiskey (10 year) followed by an Eagle Rare 10 year old.  Both neat with a side of water.  It never ceases to amaze me how more vanilla tasting the Eagle Rare becomes the more you let it open up.  (so good).

We left and went across the street to Finnegans Wake for some food.  There I had a Midleton Very Rare (neat) followed by a  Founders Centennial IPA.  I've never had this wonderful IPA before.  I've been missing something good.  :in love:

It actually works well.   :bigok:

A good night- and a slightly slower morning.  My two buddies brought over their families and TONS of fireworks.  We kind of had a contest with the neighbors, which was fun.  For the record, they kicked our asses.   :lol:  I don't know how many fireworks they had, but it we had a good amount and it was WAY more than us, and boy was it fun to watch!   :bigok: 


For those of you that like Founder's IPA (which is one of my favorites for sure- possibly #1) you REALLY need to check out Founder's Red's Rye.  I know they bottle it, but it might not be as widely distributed as Centennial IPA.  It is basically a nice rye IPA.  There was a growler of that involved in last night's festivities as well, and it could be my favorite beer of all.   :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I love reds rye pa, has been a favorite for a few years. I stopped buying it when they switched it from $8.99 a six pack, to $13.99 a four pack. It finally dropped to $11.99 a four. As much as i love it, im not going to support their price gouging

Interesting.  I think American beer (modern microbrews) are now setting the standard.  Compared to beers in the 70's?  I have no doubt it was superior. 

BTW- once more, it was great to meet you.  That's my favorite part of the BBQ- new people.

The black IPA out of the fermenter was a hit at the party last night.  Just bottled a citrus ginger blond that'll be ready in two weeks.

I've got a bunch of disparate leftover ingredients from the two recipes, so I might just pour all that crap into the fermenter and make a trashcan ale.  How bad could it be?  :shrug:

Tonight, anything we want.

On our usual walk around the neighborhood this morning we met the new renters two doors up.  Cute young girl had accidentally backed her car over a plastic recycling bin left by the trash men.  Stuck tight underneath.  I fetched my sawz-all and dispatched it.  She was so appreciative that she....  :naughty: :augie: 

Nah.

But in truth, it turned out that she & her roomies are bartenders/waitrons at one of our favorite brewpubs in town.  Free beer!

Hoping so- I had to add a lot more water to the fermenter than I usually do- lost a ton on the boil for some reason.

Might just toss some simple syrup into the fermenter in a few days.

Hey, trashcan brown got bottled last Friday and should be ready next weekend.  Got no idea if it'll be any good.  Swing by when it's ready and we'll find out.

Two pumpkins in the backyard just went all the way orange.  Gonna bake them in brown sugar and throw 'em in a dubbel mash next.

Some homemade hooch using white peaches from our trees in the front yard. Steep with a few slices of fresh peach to add a bit more flavor. Running around 70 proof.  Mix with tonic over ice.  8)

Order of preference from left to right.

Nah, it was like fifteen different kinds of grain. Two kinds of base malts, wheat, caramel 60, way too much chocolate, victory, etc.  Next time I've got leftovers I'm planning on doing the same, because why not.

I'm not brewing to make anything consistent. I just like being surprised.

Yeah, it was a thing. Moved to a new gig closer to home.

The blueberry ale turned out pretty good- nice, tart, crisp, not too sweet. This one needed a little more carbonation so I'm probably going to let the rest of the batch sit in secondary for another week.

Also brought home a present. Two bottles of pumpkin beer.

Mount Begbie Brewing Company Tall Timber Ales, then some less than stellar Steam Whistle Premium pilsners to get rid of them, to be followed by Crown Royal Maple. I'm going out in the shop to work with non-cutting type power tools and should have my swerve on by the time I get my signal lights mounted, but the whiskey is only for after I get done in the shop!

It was interesting- from Saugatuck Brewing Co (one of my favorites).  You could really taste the strawberry and chocolate, the vanilla was much more subtle.  A sipper to be sure.

During our vacation, I was able to sample some wonderful new-to-me whiskies. 


*  High West Double Rye from Park City, Utah.   It was surprisingly light and smooth for such a high rye mash bill.  I can't think of a better rye for the money except for George Dickel Rye.

visitors can't see pics , please register or login





*  AH Hirsch Reserve.  This is a very smooth and fairly complex bourbon.  And, I can't believe how little I paid for such a generous pour in a brandy sniffer!  While AH Hirsch doesn't go for as much as a Pappy's, it is around $300 per bottle.

*  Knob Creek Rye.  I'm a fan of Knob Creek Bourbon.  In fact, it's one of my readily available favorites.  Compared to other Ryes I've had lately, this one was too powerful and bitter for my taste.

*  The Balvenie 21 (Port Wood).  This is the smoothest oldest Scotch I've had.  It was wonderful!  It's a shame it costs so much.  I like it much better than my Macallan 18 (Sherry Wood aged).

The rye IPA turned out pretty good.  Still lots of hops, but an earthier selection with malts that aren't so zingy. Better for drinking in fall.

So, today I ordered me a bottle of Whistlepig 10 year Rye distilled (and aged) in Vermont.  I can't wait to try it!

When making a beer for friends, I always make a seven pack with an extra for sampling prior to giving away.

Had a request for a peach cobbler beer- biscuit and caramel mixed with peaches baked in brown sugar. Turned out as intended- a bit of fruit but not sweet, a lot of baked cookie taste without the heaviness.

It arrived today!

That does NOT taste like a 100 proof rye, which is good.  There's no doubt it's a rye.  But, it's not as hot and is more mellow than less aged ryes, especially this potent (50% alcohol).  Its initial taste is crisp without a big punch of grain.  The heat is manageable and the follow is pure rye.

You're right, I love it.

Passed on a small doe and two small bucks this morning.  Now I'm working in the barn- various brews (this is an Ommegang Brewery Hennipin) along with a nice Fuente.  I whisky-soaked it myself, and I think I will do more.
I'm dissembling a grader blade I made for my garden tractor.  It just didn't work very good at all- no down pressure on the deck hangers.  I hate taking stuff apart I have built, but like Edison, I guess I learn every time...

Redbreast single pot Irish whisky with Guinness draught on the side. The Chieftains' "Bells of Dublin" on the stereo.


Nice theme.  Slainte! 


Last night, a co-worker and his girlfriend had us over for dinner.  He's a whiskey drinker so we purchased him a tasty spirit made and aged in West Virginia.

We couldn't find the ingredients on Alameda for an old fashioned so the SO decided to make homemade eggnog from combining a couple recipes and they turned out delicious. Only bad part was running out of milk!

By request here is our Eggnog recipe...from scratch...

Almond coconut milk to taste
2.5 shots of Captain
one egg yolk
2 tsp of honey
1-2 Tbsp of brown sugar
ground nutmeg
ground cinnamon
stick of cinnamon

The recipe says to heat the milk and then add the egg and serve warm but we actually preferred to have it chilled so we strained it and added the cinnamon stick. They were delicious.

Yesterday, it was hot cocoa with Pinnacle Whipped and Bailey's Chocolate Cherry. I called it "the toothache killer."

Tonight, it's hot cocoa with Pinnacle Whipped and Patron Cafe Dark XO. I call it "the root canal recovery." I may have dribbled some of the first one on my shirt earlier while I was still kinda numb.

I have an Olivia V I will be partaking of at some point soon.  What are your thoughts?

As for me?  Several IPA's, some very tasty hard cider I made (wild yeast seems the best), and few lagers.  I used some yeast awhile back on about 4 gall09ons of cider- it's too tart.  It is going to become shine.  I'm having a bowl of Lucky Charms right now to cure the beast within.

Balvenie 15 Special and an Oliva V Maduro Cigar.

I'm a bachelor tonight and whooping it up big time! 

(*which means I'll be in bed by 10pm.   :rolf: )

I have an Olivia V I will be partaking of at some point soon.  What are your thoughts?

As for me?  Several IPA's, some very tasty hard cider I made (wild yeast seems the best), and few lagers.  I'm having a bowl of Lucky Charms right now to cure the beast within.

Dammmmmnnnn, that's LIVING right there I tell ya!   :smiley_thumb:

On the Oliva front - I like them.  I've have the following in my humidor:  Oliva V, V Maduro, Malanio Robusto and Melanio Figurado.

On the whole I find the Oliva's smoke very well.  Full bodied, they run heavy on the Ligero leaf so be prepared for the nicotine hit.  The flavor profile to me is very, neutral.  I don't quite know how to describe it other than to say that all the Oliva's seem to have the same general flavor profile.  Nubs to the Melanio line they all hint at each other.  I don't find them particularly spicy, plenty of leather in the flavor, a touch of hay but not in the Ashton or Davidoff levels.  In general I describe them as creamy...rich...just a touch of vanilla.  The flavor profile does not change much at all regardless of third.  Either you like it or find it acceptable in the first 10 minutes...or you don't.  It's not something that you need to hold out for. 

Of the dozen or so I've smoked only one had a poor burn that require a few touchups.  Generally they burn even, tending towards a longer burn time.  The flavor is very consistent as is the design.  They feel a touch firm to me in how they are rolled but they smoke fine and the draw is, I think, very medium and loosening up a bit in the second half.

Overall I like them quite a bit - and that they sell them in 10-packs makes it a very attainable cigar. 

To be honest, I like the Fuente Anejo's and the Hemmingway Maduro's probably the best...but the Oliva is a darn fine smoke that I don't feel guilty spending $8 or so on.  I snagged a deal online for about $5 per and from there they kind of became my go-to smoke when I want something but don't want to feel guilty burning $20.

A final note:  I would never feel slighted or less than handing someone an Oliva...or handing an Oliva to someone.  They are a fine high 80's smoke, maybe a 90.

Pairs well with a slightly sweeter scotch.  Not as good with wine or beer.

When my hops get ripe in the fall I pick what I need then put an ad on Craigslist that says "My Hops for Your Beer".  I have people come and pick my hops then give me a 6 pack of their beer.  I never quite know what I am getting, but it's always interesting.  This is a WAY overcarbonated very tasty IPA from some guy that came and picked:

That's a fantastic idea.

I was planting hops this spring anyway but I might throw some extra rhizomes up.   What breed of hops do you have, and how do you prep it for storage?

It works well.  I bought two rhizomes and have been splitting a little.  I started with one Centennial and one Cascade.  Honestly once you start them the toughest part is keeping them under control.  In the spring I have to cut off shoots as they come up- you have seen my vines.  After a couple years you will produce WAY more than you need.  This year I wound up with probably 20-24 beers from guys before I ran out of hops- I just let them pick as much as they want.  I put an ad on CL 2-3 weeks before they are ripe to line guys up since they are prime for picking for a week-10 days or so.

You have to dry them- the first year I put half on a screen and put half in the oven to dehydrate.  DO NOT PUT THEM IN THE OVEN.  The heat destroyed all the flavors- they were no good.  The test brew I made with them tasted like wet leaves. :lol:  At least I could run it through the 'still.  Since then I have been pulling the screen door off the slider and letting them air dry in the garage- after that I freeze them- but lots of people vacuum seal them then freeze them.  That works well.

Exactly my motivation.  It's a shame to see them go to waste.

Double post- sorry, new tapatalk sux

Ed came over for dinner last night and polished off some eggnog stouts though.


The Donut one was really good to.

 Those two bottles you gave me last night keep looking at me in the refrigerator. They may disappear tonight.

Just got a spruce ale out of the ferment or and into bottling.  I'm drinking some of the warm, flat sample that didn't fit in the bottles.

 It's resiny, odd, but pleasant.

I met a friend for dinner this evening at favorite local bar. We each did a whiskey flight.  I enjoyed a Balvenie 14, Midleton Very a Rare, and an Oban 14.

My Birthday is in March, would someone start a collection to buy me a bottle of Midleton?   :inlove:

Not just cause I'm a teacher.  I had to pick up some rootbeer brewing supplies, and while at the brewing store I have a 20 minute chat with the guy there about whiskies and distilling.  The place I go has experts on staff on nearly every aspect, and I happened to catch the whiskey guy.  Turns out he's a huge whiskey fan and wanted to get into home distilling.  In fact there's a new distillery opening in town here soon, and this guy is becoming an apprentice to the head distiller there.  He has read a bunch about it (quite knowledgeable) but hasn't tried it (home distilling) yet.

Anyway we got to talking about whisky brands- I told him I like a good whiskey, and chatted about brands- but I wasn't going to drop good coin on a bottle right now.  He recommended this one- 45% Ardmore along with a few others- it has some smoky/peaty flavors, which I love.  The kicker?  I think it was $16.  Sure, it's no Ardbeg, but at $16 it's pretty good.

Plus I had some shitty family stuff go down, so I'm good for a glass after work today.  I'm not usually a M-Th drinker, but the excitement of trying something decent and new along with the mellowing aspect was good.   :bigok:

Not sure I'm going to do lagers again. They're actually kind of tough to make, have extra steps, take three times as long. The end result is something that's readily available for not a lot of dough.

I'll find out if it's any good in about two months. This is more an experiment to see if my technique is up to par.

Tonight, Sheri gave me a blind taste test of the following:


visitors can't see pics , please register or login




My order of preference ended up being the most to least expensive.  Go figure.  Anyhow, I've deiced to write my first bourbon review and subject you as my guinea pigs.



1.  Old Forester Birthday Bourbon.  12 year old small batch bourbon.  97 proof.   $80

Nose is vanilla with toasted oak or campfire smoke. The sip is sweet with some caramel, vanilla, and spices.  The finish lingers for a while with spices and and woodsy taste.

2.  Noah's Mill.  15 year average age blended bourbon.  118 proof.  $55-60.

Nose has notes of toffee, coffee, and caramel.  It's a little smoky with a whiff of sweetness.

The taste hits you with the crispness of the rye in the mash bill followed by with vanilla and cream flavors.  The 118 proof shows up with some heat with a spicy hit to the back of the tongue.  A hearty  oak rounds out the experience.   

The finish is long and satisfying.  The higher proof doesn't really show, it's a smooth drinkable bourbon.

3.  Michter's US1 Bourbon.  No age statement.  91 Proof.  $35-40

The nose is sweet.  You can tell the mash bill has a high corn content.   The taste is very smooth.  This is very drinkable with minor oak, figs, and a touch of cinnamon.  The little bit of heat doesn’t last long. The finish is not long but has a hint of brown sugar sweetness. For the money, it's an excellent buy.


There aren't any losers in these three.  I tend to prefer more complex tastes and when you take something like an older aged Old Forester and compare it to a younger Michter's, the outcome should be no surprise.  Compared to other bourbons in the same price range, the Mitchter's stacks up VERY well and is worth the buy.

The question I ask myself is whether or not the Old Forester is worth the extra $20 to $25 over the Noah's Mill.  At the end of the day, I prefer the taste of the O.F. Birthday Bourbon.  Because $20 does't break the bank, it's worth the extra cost for me.  And, the bottle is a keeper.

Last night, Sheri and I went to a friend's place to drink, have dinner, and play games.  I consumed the best kind of bourbon last night... someone else's. 

In all seriousness, I did have some mighty fine bourbons.  I was able to enjoy fine pours of Col. EH Taylor, Pappy 20 year old, Black Maple Hill, and Elijah Craig 18.  And, Clay, that is a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue in the back.  :)

Got yard work done early, so making a lazy brew.

English mild ale- low abv, low hops (just a single addition at the start of the boil). Almost no work involved and should make a beer suited for jogging.

So I made another shrub a couple of weeks ago. I had bought a bunch of heirloom navel oranges - oranges the way they're supposed to taste. Sliced them up and layered them with sugar in a quart jar. Added a stick of cinnamon and a few cloves. Poured apple cider vinegar to the top, capped it loosely, and put it in the refrigerator for a week. Stained it a week ago and squeezed those oranges. Capped and returned to the refrigerator.

Tried it with some tonic and a sprig of rosemary last night. Oh my. It be good. Going to mix it with a little bourbon tonight.

Tomorrow I'll try it with some sparkling water.

The vinegar mellows over time and the shrub makes a pretty good mixer. Plus it makes water taste more interesting.

Oh, they did.   :bigok:  I never had enough to have a hangover (I'm Responsible! :bigsmile:), but always slept well.  Usually a whisky or scotch before bed.

We are back driving through Texas right now.  Once we left US waters they opened up the full bar, and things changed.  Good drinks, good whiskies, (of which I had nearly every one), sushi every day with wine.  Even on shore excursion days I managed to stay well ahead.  My liver needs a break now, and I need to lose some weight.  Wow did I feed.

Whiskey menu:

I had all of them but the Jacks, Jims, and Johnnies.  I have those fairly regularly.

I had notes on my phone (that was stolen), but my favorites (I think) were the Talisker and the Cragganmore.  Smoky/peaty- and the Cragganmore was smooth. By the end of the week those were my go-to afternoon snack and nightcap.

The wine menu at "Vines", the wine/tapa bar:

My favorite was the Ancient Peaks Merlot.  I tied all the reds.  I'm not a big fan of the whites, although I had a couple.

I went there twice a day usually with my daughter and had this as a tapa:

By the third day I realized I could just order the yellow tail and the tuna sushi and get two on each plate.  It was tasty.

Each day I started with a Bloody Mary along with my coffee with breakfast- virgin, if we had an excursion- the had a regular and "The Ultimate"- that one was my favorite.  The bartender added a bit of horseradish and some hot sauce to it along with Grey Goose.  The Bloody Mary continues to be my favorite mixed drink of all time- especially the way they made them.

Also had the regulars throughout the day- mostly Pina Coladas, with an occasional Margarita or Daiquiri.  I also usually had a mint julep each day.  Refreshing.  Of course I also tried new things and simply and some old favorites, like the whiskey sour.

Oh- they also had a "SeaWitch" IPA created by "Strike Brewing Co in San Jose for Princess's 50th anniversary.  It was actually really tasty.

My liver probably needs a break.

Pure ethanol is 789 kg/m^3 and ice is ~918 kg/m^3. Back of the envelope calculation says you need 70% ABV to 30% water to equal ice's density. I smell a final exam question for my physical science students.

The significance?  Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is from beverage giant Diageo (that isn't what makes this special).  What does is the fact this new Bourbon brand is from the historic Stitzel-Weller Distillery.  This is the site of where the legendary Julian (Pappy) Van Winkle made his mark in the Bourbon history books.

The Blade and Bow project started three years ago with intentions of honoring the heritage of the Stitzel-Weller Distillery site.  The name, Blade and Bow, comes from the anatomy of a key (the blade is the long section and the bow is the end or ornamental part) and the Five Key symbol that has always had a strong presence at Stitzel-Weller.  The Five Key symbol stands for the five steps of making Bourbon (grains, yeast, fermentaion, distillation and aging) and was later used as a symbol of southern hospitality.


I've purchased some newer and gimmicky bourbons lately.  Some of them were not worth the money spent (i.e. Jefferson's Ocean Bourbon).  But this one is fantastic and well worth its $50 all-in price. 

Cheers!

It's Falconati's winning submission to Mob Craft. In the glass it almost has a tequila sunrise look. It's nice - not too much coriander, just a hint of blood orange, a very pleasant tartness to the finish. 5.4% abv. It's going down quite nicely after putting a 300 mile loop on the bike today.

I don't have any control group for this one (I usually don't do Belgians or wheat beers), but I think the yeast is where this fell down.  I usually pitch dry yeast and wanted to give Safbrew's new Abbeye packets a try.  Lot more off flavors than I'm used to getting from my go-to of Nottingham.  I've got the carboys sitting in a 60 degree cellar for a couple of weeks to see if it'll clear itself up.

I'm definitely guilty for keeping crappy records.  I made a honey rye with my Dad a few months ago, pulling a grain bill out of thin air.  It was wonderful, and neither of us can remember what we put in it.  Same for a Summit IPA I just finished carbing.  :facepalm:  I finally splurged on Beersmith's app and I'll give it a spin for the next few brew days.

The bar is serving another fine Swiss Whisky tonight.  This one drinks more like a Scotch than the last one I had in Bern.  It's distilled and aged just down the mountain from my current location in Interlaken.  It's aged in Sherry Casks but not in a rickhouse.  Rather, the barrels are stored in a stone cellar. 

Their pours are quite generous here!   8)

I grew up in St. Louis. Rice also equals Budweiser. Can't help but experiment with ingredients though.

Ever consider sorghum?

Not opposed to it. Might be the next grain I try. Quinoa and millet beer?

The secret is not to make a malt forward style when going the gluten free route.  Try a session type Pale or IPA, low abv and just enough hops to make it the dominant note.

Well, not every beer I've made is my favorite, but I finally made one I don't care for.

The juniper tripel is orangy, wheaty, and definitely strong enough. The sea salt adds a nice finish. However, it's  got a sour nose I just don't like as you approach the glass, which ruins the rest of the experience.

I experimented with a new yeast on this one and I doubt I'll use it again.

On the other hand, the black rice pale ale got bottled today and it's going to be great. Super odd color for a beer.

Give it some time.  Is it a high acidity that's making it sour?   Or a possible infection? ( specific flavor really, it can point to what happened)  Or is it a tartness, you'd be surprised how many people confuse those two.  Let it rest for a bit and see if it mellows.  I did a thimbleberry beer that took over a year for it to calm down enough to be drinkable.  Same with old styles of beer before hops became popular, such as Mumm. 


Ps I been drinking Founders Dark Penance, a dark IPA clocking in at 8.9% and 100IBUs. Its a bit strong

Flavor is fine, really. It's just an overly-yeasty, sour nose to the glass. You may have a point about giving it some time. :thumbsup:

Black rice pale ale is done, and it's good. May delete the ginger for the next batch.

There is a reason beer is supposed to be in dark bottles.  And using a lemon/lime to cover up the result is like throwing steak sauce on a crappy cut of meat that's well done.  I could go into it, but the short version is light ( UV mostly) breaks down hop flavor chains into literal skunk juice ( mercaptan ).

A co-worker just got back from visiting a few MLB parks, including PNC Park in Pittsburgh.  During his tour of the 'Burgh, he visited Wigle Distilery in the Strip District.

He purchased me a bottle of one of their whiskies.  This one is a wheated whiskey made by local grains.


It's not bad, in fact it's pretty good.  My only beef is they use smaller barrels to expedite the aging process.  Every whiskey I've tasted aged in smaller barrels, they come across as being a little too oaky for me.

By the way, you were right about giving the Belgian some time. Another month of cold crashing and it seasoned right up. The odd nose went away and it retains all of the orange juniper wheat notes. I might try this again with a few tweaks.

I had a minor issue making my wit when I realized the corriander didn't some on the last order!  I substituted lemongrass and it came out great. 

Usually spiced beers need a little time.  Are you giving the beer time in the fermentors for the yeast to re-uptake some of the by products of fermentation?  Give it 3 days at FG ( three measurements where the gravity reads the same over three days in primary) and that should help things.

I bought the 6-pack, he bought a 12-pack of Leinenkugel's Summer Sampler, and we split them. I've had Summer Shandy, but none of the others - orange, grapefruit, or ginger. But I'm starting with the Illusive Traveler(s) tonight. And then Friday when I make my way to Maryland, I'm going in search of Schofferhofer's Grapefruit Hefeweizen.

The black rice beer turned out pretty good. The saison turned out pretty good.

Tonight, I'm blending the two into a black rice saison. Heavily hopped, but with mild German lager and Pilsner hops instead of the ginger and high alpha stuff from last time.  I'm mulling over entering this one in a brew competition in August.

It's an IPA glass; I got a set for Christmas.  Anything that's got a hoppier profile gets the treatment for at least the first tasting.  I thought they were just pretty, but it really does change how you taste the beer.  Plus they're kind of cool looking.

I am interested in how you "containerize" your simply awesome concoctions.

Completely redneck.  I use brown plastic soda bottles.

When the beer is done fermenting, I mix up some type of sugar and hot water into a solution (usually 3 tablespoons per gallon) and pour a little sugar water into the bottom of each bottle, eyeballing the amounts.  Pour the raw, uncarbonated beer into the bottles and shake it up.  What kind of sugar I use is informed by the style of beer: I've used orange blossom or buckwheat honey, molasses, maple syrup, agave nectar, brown sugar, or just table sugar.  It doesn't affect the taste much but it'll give a little something.

Bottles sit in the basement out of the light for a few weeks to as much as a month.  The yeast in the unfiltered beer will wake back up long enough to eat the sugar, which yields a little alcohol but a lot of CO2.  Since there's nowhere for it to go, it dives back into the beer and carbonates.  Since I use plastic and not glass, I can tell when the bottles are done by just squeezing them.  Once the bottle is taut, I sit it in the fridge a few weeks so the cold beer can hold more CO2.  Sits in the fridge for another week or two and enjoy.  I rinse the bottles out, sanitize them, and the ciirrrcle of liiiiife...

It's called bottle conditioning; it's pretty standard affair among homebrewers, for all I know.  I read it in a book somewhere.

You sir are correct.

On a side note - Kinda pissed.  9 month bottle aged Belgian Golden Strong hop bombed with Mosiac.  F*%#ing had a few bottles blow the bottoms out and now my distributor will not bring them to the joint I did the collaboration with......  It tastes amazing.  Just don't chuck the cases around at room temp!!!!!!!

So I was meeting some teac hing buddies for brews last night.  Good dudes, but they are done after 1 beer.  So I went here first:
http://longroaddistillers.com/?age-verified=f680270c8d (http://longroaddistillers.com/?age-verified=f680270c8d)

Our new local distillery.  I had a white Whiskey (which is just in-aged whiskey- or watered-down grain moonshine), which was decent.
Drink menu:

I then had "The Cold Vein", which is their take on an Old Fashioned.  It was really good.  They make all their spirits from local sources and all their additives from scratch.

After visiting the brewery next door (The Mitten http://www.mittenbrewing.com/ (http://www.mittenbrewing.com/)) with the guys and having a flight and an appetizer there, I went back to Long Road (they are next door) and had the Gin A.B. Garden.  It was amazing.  One of the bartenders told me it was his fav, so I went for it.  I can't say enough.  A great place- they will do well.  I'm a HUGE fan of these places that do stuff with local ingredients.

It's a fun time to be a dude that enjoys beer and spirits.

My own whiskey aged only 5 months in cherry charred wood.  I gotta say, it is pretty tasty.  It's watered down a bit (probably in the 100-120 proof range), but actually pretty decent.  This run was nearing the tails, so I didn't think it would be very good.  I am happuily surprised.   :thumbsup:

Working from home, so I'm doing an experimental brew.

Maggie's making chili and asked if I had any beers in the fridge that would work as an addition.  Somehow, I didn't have one beer out of the dozen varieties that would make a good stew base.

Now, I'm making a one gallon batch of beer designed to be used for chili, stew, braising, etc.  Salt, pepper, rosemary, and sage, with some black patent, rye, and biscuit malts for spice, bread, and Maillard Reaction flavors.  Just a little, little stout hops (Fuggle) for preservatives.  Using baker's instead of brewer's yeast to accentuate the desired bread-y characteristics.

It's almost like a savory beer and probably won't be good drinking, but I'm hoping it'll make good eating.

Eagle Rare 10 year.




My coworkers and I were discussing our favorite bourbons for ~$30 and this one came up.  I've been craving it all day.


(in my Ron Burgundy voice)


I'll have two fingers of the Eagle Rare.

Started out Sunday with a foo foo mocha latte with some region 4 F.U.C.K.E.R.S. Then rode to a friends house and consumed Sam Adams October fest. When those ran out we worked on Coors light when those ran out the only thing left in the refrigerator was his wife's wine coolers. Good thing she wasn't home.

And the Chicago Bears even won.  :eek:

Whiskey, my own, very green yet- bottled 3/15.  Notes:
The left one is charred oak watered down.  Middle is chared cherry watered down.  The right one is charred oak, straight (excuse the Ed spelling on the bottle)

I need to water it down.  HOLY CRAP the staright stuff is strong- I would guess 170 or so, maybe higher.  The charred cherry is really pretty good- O need to do more like that.  I have a student teacher at school and tomorrow is the supervising teacher copnference thing.  I show up and hear sopme people speak, and I'll probably cut out shortly after lunch.  Good thing.  I should not sample on school nights.

Well plans didn't work out today. I was in Ashland Wi. last night and my plan was to ride up to Brickside brewery in Copper Harbor Mi. to see Jason (head) and drink some brews and tell some lies. The weather on the other hand was not looking favorable for riding.  They were talking rain tonight and the possibility of lake effect snow showers. That ended that plan and I came home.

Finished conferences tonight.  I love them- it's one of the best parts of teaching.  That said, they are HUGE days, and I finished tonight.  We (middle school staff) went out for a couple brews to recap and relax, then I came home to have this- my own whiskey.

It's a corn-based whiskey mash charred in cherry wood instead of oak.  Smooth and tasty!

Interesting.  I've had whiskey (corn-based and others) aged in oak casks previously used to age Sherry.  But, I've not had a whiskey aged in cherry wood casks. 

Sounds good!

Wow, I'm filling up the recycling bin this week.  I've killed off another bottle.


This one makes me a bit sad since the distillery isn't putting out a 12 year old anymore. This 1.75L was my last of the 12 YO.   :(

The good news is, I've made room in the cabinet for some new inventory.  ;)

Westmalle Dubbel again tonight.  I plan to finish off with one of my favorites, a kriek lambic made with sour Morello cherries.  By now the barkeep at the Molenhaus knows to get a glass out when I walk in.  I don’t care if it is a “girlie beer”!

The best will come when I get home.  Bought a bottle today – only one he had – in Liege.  Single copper pot, single barley malt Irish Whiskey, “triple distilled” (because traditional Irish stills don’t fractionate).  I was surprised to find it on the shelf because the guy at the Celtic Whiskey Shop told me they were the only authorized retail shop in the world.

Traveling for work and tried the local offering. It's a little surprising to realize how big of a difference water makes in a beer- this had an odd aftertaste that couldn't really be explained any other way.

The boss sent me to Brussels.  Was staying in a little town called Achel; Brussels tonight. 

High presence of military police armed with semi-automatic weapons and very serious looks on their faces.  Promised the wife I would not wander downtown.  Prolly the safest big city in the EU right now. 

Still the food & beer are superb.  (Rochefort 8 is my fave.)  Far better than what you'll find in Amsterdam.  Roast boar in brown sauce made with Westmalle Dubbel and Sirop de Liège tonight.

^^This. My parents were planning a trip to Greece and right before that TWA airline was hijacked and the Navy SEAL killed and dumped on the tarmack. The tour leader asked everyone if they wanted to cancel and no one did. Had a great time and the tourist traffic was definitely light. Athens airport full of people carrying automatic rifles and wearing paramilitary garb.

Glad to see you are having a good time! Just stay away from large gatherings and outdoor cafes...

Thanks for the rum suggestion.  Mount Gay is always my go to.  So, if you like 10 Cane better, I'll need to try it.


The winning order of the Bourbon tasting is...

(from left to right)

visitors can't see pics , please register or login




Noah's Mill is a full bodied complex tasting bourbon with a nice long follow.  I really believe that I'm getting my money's worth with this Bourbon.  And, its sweet flavor is more caramel than vanilla.  It's hard to beat this Bourbon for my pallet. 

The more expensive Wild Turkey Master's Keep is good.  In fact, it's very good.  The nose and taste are fantastic.  The sweetness is more vanilla, which isn't my favorite sweet profile.  But, it's mellow and not over the top sweet.  The problem I have with the Master's Keep is the follow / finish.  It's not very long in the mouth and its simply oaky and not very complex.  So, Master's Keep is initially sweet followed by a burst of musty oak.  I'm not sure it's worth its price.  I'd purchase Wild Turkey's Rare Breed any day of the week over this limited edition. 

The Blade and Bow has a very similar tasting profile to the Noah's Mill.  But, it's less complex and the follow is a too bitter compared to the other two.  It's a very drinkable Bourbon.  But, in this group it was a clear dead last for me.

Thanks for the bourbon review. I wondered how the WT17 would stack up.

As far as the rum, I like the Mount Gay, but you can see which one has less. In the pic also: my winter standby, Bushmills 10 year. If you haven't tried that single malt, you owe it to yourself.

Agreed.  But, if you have a 12 year old, it's a rare find these days.  Heaven Hill no longer puts an ages statement on Elijah Craig.

For some reason, my favorite under $30 go-to has been Four Roses.  But, I'd be just as happy to have EV SB or Knob Creek.

I've not had Glenmorangie before.  This one is the PX Finish 12 year old.  Damn it's fine.  It has a very sweet smell with a smokey full bodied flavor and a nice non-spicey follow.

It was time for a blind taste test.  I love all three of these, but my preference tonight is in order of left (favorite) to right.

Of all the days of Christimas break I ight have failed my liver the most today.

Th real problem is that I enjoy liquors in the world- ion theior various envorinments.

Like breakfast. I mean seriously- to see St Brenanmds in it's real encviroment one needs Irish Creeme with coffee.  And may be a little reagular.  I really do enjouy Irishi Creme.

Lunch? I live in Michigan- home to some of the best brewerires in the world.  Founders, for example.   Centennial IPA.  Perfect with venison steak.  No pictire of steak- maybe tomorrow (I have more).

Then I did some work. WOrked on one of my sleds- wouldn't figure out why it wouldn't wind out.

After an hour of troubleshooting it struck me- bad drive belt.  Done.

For supper we wnt to my wing-man's house.  I have lots of friends.  I really love peopole- but I catagirize thenm into a few levels.  There are those Whome I enjoy, but aren't close.  I will help them out at anytiome with a call.  I love them, but if I am in trouble, thy won't be my first call.

Next level:  Those I would call when I am in trouble, like jail.  These are friends whom are burdened with my friendship to a levell that I would call them if I gort in too deep and I am in jail and need to be bailed out.  I love them.

Finaly level:  Those who would be in jail with me.  This is Ed my riding wiong man, with whoes family we had supper tonight.  We brought pizza and a growler of delicsious love known as Founder's Redys Rye, but that only went so far.   Foundr's IPA, his handmade (hand squeezed limes, eyc) margaritas, followed by siome Gentleman Jack. Sincere, great friends down to the basest of levels.  We have been close to jail together

Now I am going to bed I think.  Very lit, very tireed.

Blind test test this evening with friends. 




My choices from #1 to last from the blind taste test...


visitors can't see pics , please register or login



1. Pappy 15 (this is the 3rd time I've had Pappy 15 in a blind and chose it to be my favorite.

2. Black Maple Hill (good luck finding this anywhere)

3. High West Rye

4. Elijah Craig 18

5. Wild Turkey Master's Keep 17

6. Old Scout Rye


There really wasn't a bad one in the bunch but the top three stood out head and shoulders over the rest.

If I had to rank these based on value, the two Ryes would be on top.

I've had two generous pours of Four Roses Small Batch (finished off the bottle). And, Sheri had a pour of The Balvenie 12 Scotch.

Yep, Sheri is now hooked on the brown juice. She likes Scotch, not Bourbon. It's all good in the hood tonight.

Apparently, the bar is serving Mrs. Wedge and her sister pineapple upside-down shots  :headscratch: which, apparently she loves. How do I know? While I was watching grandkids I got sent a random video of Mrs. Wedge, on stage, with a full band, playing the cowbell to the classic cowbell song, "Don't Fear the Reaper."

This is not unusual, as she somehow always end up on stage, either with a cowbell or a tambourine. She has her own at home and practices. This is my life.

Bells released their winter seasonal hop slam 10% double ipa. I was at trader joes picking up a few things and saw a guy with two six packs. I thought cool and checked the beer isle after I got my other stuff. No hop slam, what the hell. So I check the isle ends and see another guy carrying it. I ask him where he got it, he says they are unloading the truck now. Go to the back door and grab some. Sweet!  Yes there are better beers but this stuff is very limited and is usually very hard to find, plus it is pretty tasty.  Made a boring trip to TJ's much more pleasant.

She needs to take up the bagpipes so she can do that AC/DC song "It's a Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock 'n' Roll)". Can't have too much bagpipe.

Oooo... #4 could be bagpipe lessons...

Apparently, the bar is serving Mrs. Wedge and her sister pineapple upside-down shots  :headscratch: which, apparently she loves. How do I know? While I was watching grandkids I got sent a random video of Mrs. Wedge, on stage, with a full band, playing the cowbell to the classic cowbell song, "Don't Fear the Reaper."

This is not unusual, as she somehow always end up on stage, either with a cowbell or a tambourine. She has her own at home and practices. This is my life.


Well?  When will the Youtube upload be finished?   ;D

I have thought about it, and I might still do it. In the meantime, just imagine crazy redhead, front and center stage with a cowbell, backed up by two pianos. Yes, BOC with two pianos and a cowbell.



She needs to take up the bagpipes so she can do that AC/DC song "It's a Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock 'n' Roll)". Can't have too much bagpipe.

I like this idea. I may even just threaten her with that. No, I definitely will threaten her with that. I was thinking Spanish lessons in a total immersion school in Guatemala, but bagpipes might be fun too.

Brew day - making an Indian ale. No, not an IPA.

Garam Masala, jaggery palm sugar, red millet, cardamom, and saffron into a light bodied, 'Jesus it's hot outside because India' ale base.

Lancaster Brewing Co.
UnderLord Acheron
Available in very limited supply, a special hybrid of our UnderLord Russian Imperial Stout and Winter Warmer Ales, makes for a truly one-of-a-kind beer experience. UnderLord Acheron is barrel aged in Kentucky bourbon and rye whiskey barrels for 12 months, producing intense notes of vanilla, coffee, oak and whiskey, tempered with a big malt backbone and warming finish.
ABV:10% IBU:50 OG:19 – Draft Only

If they say so...whatever it is,  I like it.

I did get to the old neighborhood in Williamsburg Brooklyn and stopped into the Brooklyn Brewery. (I was living in Williamsburg when the brewery opened in 1996 and have been a fan ever since). While the boys happily conversed with the hipster computer developers testing some new video games, I tested some new products from the brewery and came home with a couple bottles of the first 2016 Brooklyn Quarterly Experiment - Improved Old Fashioned. It's a strong rye beer with spices and peels aged in WhistlePig Rye Whiskey barrels. For those unfamiliar, Whistlepig is an outstanding rye whiskey distilled in the Champlain Valley of Vermont. I cannot recommend it enough.

PS. Tonight is Fremont Brewing 77 Select which they call a Session IPA. It seems like a big malty Amber to me. Hoppy, but not in an IPA way. It's really good.

Something motorcycle related as well!  Maybe key's to a Ford GT or Dodge hellcat instead of the toyota key's
 
:blbl: Oh and a garter belt.  :leghump:  (No disrespect to Sheri)


Also a knife of some kind. Maybe a cleaver.

Had one of these tonight. It's kinda pricey at $13 for 750 ml. But the 13.2% alcohol content puts it into wine territory.

Very tasty. Licorice, chocolate and burnt wood. Definitely not sweet.

It reminds me of a real Porter.

The more I got into appreciating Bourbon, the less I enjoyed one of the most recognizable Bourbons on the market.  As my pallet matured, I found Makers Mark to be bland of complex flavor and a little too sweet.  Look, I have a sweet tooth and enjoy sweets with the best of you. But, too much is too much and that can be a problem with whetted Bourbons.   

Now, enter the higher proof Barrel Proof Makers and I believe it darn near balances out flavor and heat near perfect levels.  Is it as good as the top whetted Bourbons on the market like Pappy and William Larue Weller? No, but it does a mighty fine job for the money.  And, best if luck finding the other two mentioned on the shelf at retail price.  If you do, stock up on it (and call me because I'll buy it all from you).


I purchased this last Saturday and the bottle already has a dent in it.

Buffalo Brewery Hosts Budweiser Buyback To Make Streets “Safe” (http://www.communitybeerworks.com/2016/05/beer-buyback-saturday/)

Quote
Most “buy backs” or anonymous drop-offs are related to a presumable scourge on the streets, where threats to civic welfare and matters of personal safety are at hand. Which is why you’ll often hear of communities hosting drop-offs of things like guns, knives, drug paraphernalia, and now, apparently, Budweiser.

This Saturday, May 21st, Buffalo’s Community Beer Works will be hosting an actual, honest-to-goodness Anheuser Busch Beer Buyback. From 12pm to 8pm, citizens of Buffalo can bring their unused Anheuser Busch products to 15 Lafayette Street, the site of the CBW brewery, no questions asked. In return for that unopened bottle of Bud Light or, god forbid, can of Bud Light Lime Raz-Ber-Rita, Buffalo citizens will receive $1 toward the price of a beer at Community Beer Works’ retail location.

Don’t expect to get rich, the cap is just $2 per person. But according to the CBW, Buffalo’s first nanobrewery, monetary gain isn’t really the spirit of the buyback. “We don’t care where the Anheuser Busch product came from or how you acquired it. You don’t even have to pretend someone left it in your fridge after a party,” CBW’s Chief Operating Officer Chris Smith says in the press release. “We just want it off our streets.”

When asked why Smith and the CBW are calling for such an urgent buyback of Budweiser, aka “America,” Smith insisted “it’s clear that Unintended Consumption of Anheuser Busch (UCAB) can have possible negative side effects. In our anecdotal experience, we’ve seen far too many friends suffer from loss of taste enjoyment and paroxysms of patriotism.” In fact, Smith is so concerned for his fellow Buffalonians (we know that’s probably wrong) he recommends they transport their Budweiser products in the trunk.

Considering the CBW’s opinions on the apparent and immediate danger of Budweiser products, the question remains: how to dispose of them? Should cans of “America” be given proper patriotic attention upon their destruction? “You know what’s American?,” says Smith. “Collecting all this beer and then blowing it up on the Fourth of July. While drinking good beer and making our streets beer safe for our kids.”

It's Rye whiskey and very different from what you'd expect.  It's a young whiskey only 6 years old. It's a love it or hate it whiskey but definitely worth a try. Not for everyday however a good strong cigar won't drown it out. If you smoke a good Cuban or Honduran smoke is a great pairing. Used to be made near my hometown but has been bought out and is now made in Kentucky. They've done a good job.

If you find you've a taste for rye whiskey Knob Creek makes one. So does Rittenhouse but it's a dear price to pay.

This:

edit: after multiple samples, I can attest that this is the proverbial "velvet hammer". Smooth, mild, flavorful and deceivingly potent. Has a clean finish with a clear agave nose. Evaporates off the tongue and leaves you wanting more. Hints of it's fruitiness, but not overbearing. Like an intoxicating woman, it leaves a little mystery. I wish I could buy you all a sipper of it.

I like finding reviews of stuff after I've had it and collected my thoughts.

Reservade De Don Julio Anejo.  Light and complex as a good anejo should be. Agave flavors are subdued, and blend nicely with the overall richness. Dances on the tongue but does not overstay its welcome. The blending gives it a wonderfully mixed nose, and it has legs that have an amazing hang time. This one has now taken its place in my top 3 favorites.

Sheri and I are traveling out of state for a funeral this weekend. I will typically stop by a local ABC to see what i may be able to score in an other state (NC ABC is horrible).  To my surprise, I spotted two bottles of Stagg, Jr behind the counter.  I asked how much and he said $69.99@.  I took both.  The guy at the liquor store says he'd just opened a box and there were still 4 remaining.  So, i purchased the entire box.  Here is  $420 with if highly sought out bourbon will now make its way to NC where it'll make the day of some of my bourbon drinking friends seeking this.

Espolon tequila reposado, since I promised Max Wedge a review.

It's a bit up front is my major impression. It creeps around the edge of my palate and heads straight up my sinuses. I still like the blanco better. I think the oak is turning me off.

Haven't stayed for that yet. Seems I've always got to get back to do some work, catch up on the poorly ignored DVR, get some work done, run to the grocery store, get some work done, pick up prescripts, get some work done, and when all else is done, I have to get some more work done. :\

I have come to more fully appreciate the spare hour here or there to take a breath. I love my new job (well, not so new now after ~2 years), but it keeps me hopping. Sakai is the bane of sane software developers everywhere.

Sheri and I will also be roaming the area in two weeks (week of Oct. 24) Louisville, Bardstown, and Lexington.  We may need to coordinate a meet. 

Things not to be missed for us include attending a race at Keenland and a hard hat tour of Buffalo Trace. 

There are several excellent Bourbon bars in the area to do some flights, Proof on Main comes to mind.

How was the Pappy V Winkel?

I've had PVW 15 several times before.  Every time we've placed the 15 year old in a line up for a blind flight, it has always come out on top for me.  Last night was no different. 

All of the bourbons in the flight pictured were all so different and yet all so good.  I was like a kid at a candy store.  "Oh my, you have???? and you have????"   Just about any bourbon I wanted to taste, they had it.  I limited
