Decided to finish the SA TPS 8yr 121.6 proof that has been open for awhile. Good to the last drop.
The liver is evil. It must be punished...
Given the recent onset of full on November weather, I've been into the "Pig" the last two days. Yeah, most likely just getting started, because it looks like it's going to be a long winter.
Finally cracked open the WFE 2yr. Not bad but no better than Ritt or Saz 6
Finally finished off my McKenzie Rye. A really great drink and a good value. I will look to get more, especially if they age it even longer.
Baby Saz and Willett 4 year. Two excellent ryes.
First taste of the Willett 2-year. Definitely a little harsh around the edges but lots of rye flavor and I was getting a little fresh mint on the finish which I enjoyed.
A Midwinter Nights Dram Act 1, paired with a Vegafina Sumum, out by the fire on a balmy 73 degree evening ... Mood fire...
The MND is a wonderful whiskey. I like the richness that the finishing in port and FO barrels add. Personally though, I think it could use even more finishing time to further mute the mintiness of the base Rondezvous Rye. Maybe, the next Acts will? Just my own musings here, as this is still excellent whiskey, and thoroughly enjoyable.

A cold, cold rain on a Friday night leads me to reach for a rye. Figured I'd start off with 3 fingers of the WP and see how it goes.
