    New hand blown lowball glasses.

    [PICS deleted] What size are these? Like, are they 7 OZ. to the rim or 8 OZ. to just below the rim? I like the shape even though my fat, arthritic fingers tend to drop smooth-sided glasses. Indeed, we have a patch of 7 OZ. "juice" glasses from Crate and Barrel that are the same shape but are clear. I LOVE yours more than ours. H

    Another shot ( play on words). Yes it has been broken in with Riff tonight. Nothing like having a drink in something you made with your own hands. I recommend if given a opportunity make one for yourself. Cheers,

    What Bourbon Are You Drinking - Winter 2023?

    Got this one at Fisher's.
  6. Following @smokinjoe 's lead I went out and picked up one of the new bottles of 4RSiB. I thought for grins that I'd do a comparison to an older ME but I guess I didn't squirrel one of those away. So I chose this HE from what I believe to be a barrel bottled in 2013. They almost taste like different bourbons. I wonder if Four Roses changed the label to be darker in color to make up for the fact the liquid inside is lighter? The new one is still a superb value compared to just about anything near its price today.
  7. Not one, not two, but a trifecta of pours of Ritt BIB SiB Kroger Store Select. Ya man. It is actually really good and this bottle was only $23. Yes, Cheap Bastards always know what they pay.

    What’s on the menu????

    Homemade pizza (wife made the sourdough dough, rolled it out, added home grown veggies and tomato sauce) accompanied by "happy hour" food of spinach/artichoke dip (made from scratch). HH drink was Barr Hill Tom Cat Gin with Wegmans Sicilian lemon soda, and dinner wine was "Old Vine Red" from Trader Joe's. Dessert was homemade "birthday cake" ice cream with Whole Foods tart cherry pie. Pictures follow:

    What’s on the menu????

    I wanted a cheesesteak, but all the places around me are pretty mediocre. So I made my own.

    What Bourbon Are You Drinking - Winter 2023?

    I still pulling on this puppy while fuzzily watching TV. Almost finished my kitchen clean-up duties. Only have about 650 ml to go before it is emptied. For whatever reason, I really like the HH BIBs. The higher proofs/older ages in sister/brother brands are OK but not something I seek. THIS stuff really appeals to me although I've tried multiple times to "document" my notes on it and have not been able to pin down the characteristics that catch me. Is kind of like LOVE - I now it when it grabs me by the whoopies, but for the life of me, I cannot tell you WHY some things grab me and others pass me by.
  12. Replaced a few gfci outlets down near the pool today. Then I went to check the hot tub and found that my circulation pump has failed. Tonigh I am relaxing with some Redemption 10 year, while I look for the replacement pump.
  13. Misdirection. There only so many fish in the under $30 pond. That's where I do my fishin.' There are literally 100s of very pretty bottles with fascinating stories out in the ocean of bourbon for the taters to track down. My advice to newbies and taters is that you don't want to be a Cheap Bastard. Drop the coin if you want to impress your family, friends, and neighbors.
  14. At bourbon club we had Rye night.

    So, whatcha smokin?

    Enjoying this end of the work week smoke, while watching the Sun pass down through the Georgia pines. This is a hefty and powerful cigar, but big nutty flavor deliciousness.
  17. Nope. You’re on your own pal. I get myself in enough trouble as it is.

    What BEER are you drinking in 2024:

    I’ve had Green Man IPA before, but it’s been awhile. I don’t remember liking it as much as I do right now. Big fluffy head, and a very nice velvety Hoppiness, that’s not over tart. It’s really great, and hitting the spot after a very laborious 4 day week.

    New hand blown lowball glasses.

    Very nice! It must have been fun.
  25. Stoked about this. Wife surprised me yesterday by taking us to a local glass work shop were we took part in creating our own hand blown lowballs. The results are below. Mine is the darker of the two and looks totally different with a light source. Cheers

    I saw a post from @Harry in WashDC about HH 7 BIB. So, I opened one up and had a nice pour last night.
