    Thank goodness I don't ever have to leave my house anymore...and if I do, it's with my wife's family where everybody can drink what they please: coffee, tea, water, wine, spirits...or combinations thereof. I used to spend half the holiday time every year with my family where such enjoyment was not welcomed. I fixed that...with the exception of 1 brother, I've managed to get excommunicated & blacklisted from the remainder of the family....but, it does come with benefits!

    Sorry for the drift....enjoying some more Bruichladdich Rocks on this Black Friday...while avoiding all the idiots flooding the roads & stores.

    Small family for Thanksgiving here this year and the drinkers didn't show up. My in-laws aren't terrible people...they're just really boring. And with M-I-L having dietary restrictions on anyone that she can control, enjoyment of anything is limited. My daughter's 2nd birthday "party" tonight. Oh goodie...we get gluten-free chocolate something or other...

    With my family or my wife's, we're the only middle ground people. There's either teetotalers or people who you don't want to drink with because babysitting adults is never fun. Oh well, my girls love seeing grandma and that's what really important.

    Shared some Ealanta with some good friends. It went over quite well. These particular friends I have converted from Scotch to bourbon & rye so they were a little surprised to see me with it. They enjoyed it as did I and that's all that matters. Good drink and good friends.


    Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whiskey and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind but falling in love and not getting arrested.

    Oh it's just some experimentation inspired by more experienced SB blenders like Gillman, et al. I may try a 2:1:1 Clynelish:Ardbeg:MacCS blend next.

    That sounds good actually... I don't have a bottle of Lag16 handy though so I'll need to remedy that

    Re: What Wee Dram Are You Enjoying Now - Fall 2013/Winter 2014

    I'm still stuck in Wisconsin with a bunch of normally drunk, but currently sober women at a baby shower for my wife's cousin. They're so needlessly loud and unattractive that I'm imagining a large dram of something. Because of their obnoxious volume, my 2 year can't nap which will lead to a difficult evening.

    I might have to make a run tonight somewhere after they leave. This 4 day weekend couldn't get any worse. Anyone have anything special that they recommend to make the pain of holiday gatherings go away. Perhaps a 1:1 vatting of Glenmo and Valium?
