    4th of July Bourbon

    Happy Fourth, all!. All the "offfical" fireworks shows were cancelled, but here at the beach there were amateur displays all along the eight-mile strand, under a stunning full moon Out on the deck the sipping consisted of Remus Repeal Reserve (batch II). The finest MGP juice as presented by MGP itself, and even better than Metze's Select. And for variety, some Buffalo Trace Kosher Wheat, which is the secret way to get Weller at the Jersey Shore.

    4th of July Bourbon

    Ha! There were three of us so plenty of seafood for everyone. Man.. its the way to go too.. local seafood market ends up being about 1/4 the price of eating out . The other two had no interest in my choice of drink thankfully.
  5. WOW - 5X MSRP - is it just me, or is CEHT getting some sort of halo right now that is translating to wacky pricing? Jut insane.
  6. The Boone County 12 year was great! by the time I realized, they disappeared from the shelves around here. Cheers to you!

    What Bourbon Are You Drinking Today (Summer 2020)

    I had a pour from an old bottle of Rare Breed, yesterday afternoon. Now I remember why not to stick to lower-shelf pours. It was concentrated deliciousness. Also, for the first time, I tried that "one giant ice cube" trick. I know, I'm an old geezer, way behind the curve.

    What rum are you drinking today?

    I think you just made history trying to justify a Foursquare purchase. Just go with it, here I’ll open mine tonight. I’m already having anxiety periods because this is my last one.
  9. That's a concerning situation.
  10. I was just planning on having the Weller FP tonight for the holiday. But after seeing the sad news about Vosgar I decided to have a special pour of WLW in his honor. SB will miss you greatly sir.
  11. I will have no qualms with $60 12 year KC. Once I drink down a few of these single barrels that is! Curiosity might even get the best of me first too, Lol
  12. I enjoy the Early Times BIB, does anybody know if it's the same? Sorry no worries, I should just use the search function, and I will. The only OF100 I've tried are older expressions. Maybe I need to give it another chance with the new batches.

    Thanks! That’s the full moon behind my glass, and the illumination from the exploding firework made it look almost like daytime.

    4th of July Bourbon

    Started with an OF1910. ~3oz pour which I savored for about an hour while grilling a tri-tip (that came out just about perfect, to my great delight). First time I’ve had it, and I am a fan. It reminded me of WR double oaked, which I really enjoy. But it’s softer on the front palate; I thought of honey with a floral note, lavender perhaps. On the mid-palate it was just sweet and simple corn whiskey, but ended with the dry, oaky, pipe tobacco finish I associate with the double oaked WR. Very sippable. And incredible rich leather color. I ended the night with a Rittenhouse old fashioned watching fireworks from my front yard, which is pictured. Great night! Happy 4th!
  18. Full proof for the occasion

    What rum are you drinking today?

    I guess listen to lcpfratn? I enjoyed it but Im also no rum expert. It's the first Foursquare I've tried. Curiosity is why I bought this.
  20. I had an Olde Style earlier, and man it hit the spot. It's not easy to find this far South. I still have some from what I got for my dad on Father's Day. This is what they served at Wrigley Field, before they switched to Bud.

    What rum are you drinking today?

    Because it’s really good, reasonably priced, unadulterated rum aged for 11 years in ex bourbon casks. What’s not to like? Oh, I forgot to mention that it’s also bottled at cask strength!

    Did you happen to cook anything for other people in the household? "These are my shrimp. I'll make sure they aren't BAD. Would you like some tater tots?" Did you happen to offer them something to drink as well? Like, "Here's some Jim Beam. Make yourself a cocktail." Little (heck, more than a little) bummed by the news on Gary/Vosgar, but OGD BIB is keeping me in the game as we watch 4 July stuff from around the Nation on CNN.

    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today (Summer 2020)

    Yeah, we have them. Lake Anna (Virginia) Civic Association fires them off on whichever Saturday is closest to 4 July or ON the 4th like tonight. Because they fire them off from a dike on the lake, virtually all viewers are in boats. We are lucky. Our boat dock is in a straight line, albeit 3/4 of a mile, from the firing dike so we don't have to do anything but get in my 25 year old golf cart and trundle down to the dock with beverages and bug spray. No docking a pontoon boat in the dark when half-lit; just saying. On thread - Didn't buy doo doo today, but I do have a VA ABC list for Wednesday next when we are scheduled to go grocery shopping.

    A pour of Lot B after grilling 3 lbs of jumbo shrimp.

    What are you cookin on the smoker?

    Came out acceptable, especially for my first attempt and will be spared from the chili pot. Cooked to fast at around 6 hours instead of at least 7. Would’ve also like a little bit more spark. Otherwise it had gray flavor and was really moist but didn’t come out like pot roast which some times happens with these ribs.
