    Say... Aren't you the most interesting Texan in the world?

    I'll have to give Redbreast another shot in all seriousness though. My last bottle of RB12 didn't do much for me.

    Sipping from a sample of IB Archives Strathmill 1974 - 44.5%

    It's got a ton of fruit that smacks you in the nose and front of the palate and then follows it up with some salty funkiness - what a strange cat... I love it!

    Probably not much else - I've already been imbibing... Last pour was ECBP1:EC12 though

    Thanks for the info, I'm regretting not grabbing it now.

    That combo has intrigued me. I need to give that one a shot.

    Since today was a cold, miserable February day sandwiched between 2 even more miserable days of 35 degree heavy rain...why not bring the Storm inside tonight Talisker style? This is my 3d visit with my 1st bottle of TS...hoping this one is more memorable than the previous two.

    We reached -28 degrees this year. I'd kill for even approaching 35 degrees in the near future. I think we hit it once in the last 6 weeks.

    Having a wee dram of Bruichladdich Rocks... I have gone back and forth with this bottle but I've firmly come down on the "love it" side of things. Some nights it hits alright, but others, like tonight, it's just perfect. I am going to have to grab another bottle or two before they disappear.

    Down to cover #4 (Christie Brinkley, 1980) on 50yrs of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition (NBC) - sipping on old red label Macallan Cask Strength (57.4%) and boy does it smell like leftover water used for rehydrating dried shiitake mushrooms...

    Tastes pretty good though - a little funkier and denser flavor wise vs the newer bottling.

    Thx to the generous SB'r for the samples.
