Wanted something to sip on during this cold night.  OGD114 fits the bill nicely.

I did the same last night, with rain pushing out and temps dropping tonight I am planning a sequel.

I'm off work for 12 days and it just snowed 5-6 inches. I'm currently cooking chili on the Egg, and I just sat down with a glass of VOB BIB. It's going to be a relaxing afternoon.

Slowly killing this one, sipping on the 2018 also and, to be honest, I like the 2018 more. Both are amazing pour though. Cheers! 

 

Will.

I love chili on the Green Egg. The whisp of smoke the chili gets is incredible. I try and make a big batch around this time of year as well.

What kind of Dutch oven is that ?

OWA PS.... the 2 PS of the 4 I have obtained this year are not nearly as good as the standard OWA. They are noticeabally hotter and seem younger. Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon?

Interesting take! I have experience just the opposite. The Whiskey Bar here, had an unbelievable barrel of OWA that sent me on the hunt for it & my grab, while pretty good, doesn't measure up to theirs. I have had a pour 1st, every time I have visited & their barrel has defeated everything that followed.

You just never know...

Really enjoying the Calumet 12yr, grabbed 2day. A very subtle caramel nose. It is a bit sweet, with cherry & caramel on the front end & a longish, slight oaky finish.

I think it was worth a buy...

Tramontina 6qt enamel covered cast iron Dutch oven from Sam's. In hind sight I wouldn't have gotten the enamel covered one, but if so I wouldn't have gotten the yellow. This is a big pain in the butt to clean when I cook in the Egg. Oh well, once that chili hits my taste buds it makes that cleaning worth it.

Enjoying a SAOS 8yr single barrel (107 proof, barrel 1026). This is an older bottling and was a sample from a friend. It's really nice! I have had a lot of MGP stuff and this is one of the best I've ever had that was MGP distillate. Wish I had a bottle, but I was glad I got to try it.

My bartender just refused to serve me a WT Longbranch with a straightforward "Nah, get something better." I'll try it at some point for sure, but I trust the guy a lot and didn't feel like breaking his heart today. So, their Kentucky Spirit PS it is.
