Another Minnesotan! Welcome aboard!
Welcome to the boards, Jim! Next time you're going to stop by the High West warehouse, let me know. I'm on the road a lot of the time, but find myself at the office at least one week a month.
Welcome to the board! Nice to see you're from Adelaide. Used to spend a lot of time there when I was in the wine business. Is Nu Thai still there? One of my favorite Thai restaurants ever. Loved...
FWIW, I've seen PLENTY of Ritt BiB in a bunch of stores in Milwaukee.
Welcome! Love Madison...was last there a few months back for the Distill America event. Lots of great whiskey nuts there. Really enjoyed eating at Craft and Merchant. There seems to be a lot of...
Seems to be an increasing number of Minnesotans here on the board. Is it just me, or is it time to try to plan a night out?
Glad to have another Georgia Boy aboard!
Welcome! You're going to love this place!
I'm actually heading to NYC tomorrow. HW dinner at Char No. 4 on Tuesday, Whisky Live on Wed., and some staff training and account visits in between. Fly...
Welcome to SB! I've been through SD a few times...last time to visit Garretson, the only town in the U.S. to bear my family's name. Nice place. How's the Bourbon selection up there?
Welcome! Was in Milwaukee two months ago, and was really impressed with the variety of American whiskies available there. Enjoyed a great meal at Rumpus (& will be back soon to do a dinner there),...
As the Doobie Brothers once said, "What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits".
Hey, Dan! Great to have another Minnesotan on here. Plans are in the works for a gathering of MN folks fairly soon. Watch the Social board for info.
Better yet, talk to your employer and your CPA. :cool:
Lesson #1 if you're employed in the distilling business:
EVERY BOTTLE YOU BUY CAN BE EXPENSED AS RESEARCH.
Go out and buy those bottles you've not yet tried. It'll make you better at your...
Always glad to see another Georgia Boy on this site!
Just finishing up a visit to Madison. Great city! Had an amazing dinner at Merchant last night. These folks really know craft cocktails, and the food was great. Amazing selection of Bourbons &...
Yep. UGA IX will be inducted with the new football season. He's VIVI's great nephew.
Thanks! Gotta ask...is Two Brother's BBQ still open? Used to head up to Ballground just to have lunch there...
Thank you, kindly!
Needless to say, my family bleeds Red & Black. Here are a few photos that - as Dawg fans - I'm sure you'll appreciate:
#1: My boys with Coach Dooley...
Just for you I'm changing my avatar. It's a photo of my Dawg, VIVI ('viv-vee') who's daddy was UGA VI. Her brothers were VII & VIII, and her lineage goes all the way back to UGA I.
Welcome, Dave! And Tucker may be right about that avatar. As a former Dunwoody boy and current head of the UGA Alumni Association in Minnesota, I think it might be a little understated.
Welcome John! Always great to see another producer join the ranks. My father hails from "West-By-Gawd-Virginia", so I'll be eager to check out your distillates.
According to Bill Newlands, the target market for MM46 is - wait for it - the MM drinker.
Recognizing the growth of small batch and single barrels, the folks at Beam became concerned that the MM...
Is it better than the 'regular' MM? Absolutely. That said, it's all relative...and I find it lacking. While I'll always have a bottle on my bar, it's not one I find myself going to.
For those who...
Cracked a bottle last night, and was pleasantly surprised. Maybe it's because my expectations were so low. I found it to show its age in a good way...offering nice layers of complexity, but the...
