Just found out earlier this week that my brother-in-law has ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). So tonight he wanted to sit by a fire. So I pulled out a Pappy 20y to share with him.   

A friend had lost his wife to cancer a few days ago, and to give him a little pick-me-up I told him at the funeral parlor I'd stop by his home with a couple nice Bourbons to raise in her honor after s

Had a little tasting today at the Loch & K(e)y Society.     A pre-game photo to get fishinbowljoe's heartbeat up and running, eyes dilated, and breathing heavy.     ?

Nice!

 

I got stuck in the past myself with a couple of 1870s while dining with friends.

CEHT SmB tonight. It had been out of stock at my local for what seems like a couple months at least, so made sure to grab some. I gotta say it’s my favorite of the regular BT line. Happy Friday!

Yes they did. But Doolittle got them out of it. Now a fresh cracked PS version. Super sweet up front to a spicy late mid palate and beginning of the finish. Then back to sweet baked apple.

I had a great day today.
 

Grandparents day at my grandsons school. ?  Had a tail light assembly and radio antenna replaced on my wife’s van at a cost of $0.00. ?  Enjoyed a great lunch with wife. ?  While at lunch, we ran into a former Special Olympics bowler that I used to coach. It was nice catching up with her and her father. ?  Pours of BT and WSR after supper. ?  2018 WLW in the glass to end the day. ? Days like this don’t come along very often.  I’m gonna cherish this one for a while. :)
 

Biba! Joe

WTKS PS tonight. This is a honey barrel. I hate, that I picked up only one bottle.  Lesson learned. ?

Really good stuff. Enjoying with my Brother!!

I had the same last night while watching Sanchez carve up the Cards in the first game of the NLCS.  Both were spot on. ;)

The curse of having too much good whiskey opened - some bottles fall out of rotation for far too long. 

 

Hadn't poured from this bottle since I first opened it in Bardstown in April 2015, and I think a couple of folks had a pour (before heading down to Cox Creek to pick one up); an 11 yr, 6 month OBSF gift shop pick.  One of the last Rutledge picks I bought (can't believe it's already been more than 4 yrs since he left 4R).  The F yeast isn't my favorite - but this is a really solid sipper, and I think the herbal thing it has going on would be killer in some cocktails.  Has a very 'fall' feel to it.

Mrs. Vosgar had a gift certificate for Outback, so off we went for dinner tonight. Ordered a WT101 neat and was very pleasantly surprised when it was brought to the table. Served in a brandy snifter, it had to be a good 2-1/2, maybe 3oz pour. All for $7.75 :)  I'm sure the size of the pour was a fluke but hey, every once in a while you catch a break. Their selection of whiskey wasn't anything to brag about but they sure knew how to serve what they had.

This is what I love about WT101. Even in a bourbon desert like Outback you can find WT101 and not feel like you're settling for mediocre whiskey.

Having a small pour of EC. Usually I find that it is a solid bourbon. However, tonight, it is following a fabulous OESO and it is coming off as rather pedestrian.

Not a good week for Georgia sports teams but had such a good hike with my kids today, I thought I’d should pull out something special tonight.

Back to a favorite in front of the outdoor fireplace with the first fire of the season.  Such nice unsweetened cocoa notes from this Larceny.

So the crap storm has eased off a bit and things are better.  The uneven dispersion law has been a problem over the past few weeks. For those of you unfamiliar with this particular law, the uneven dispersion law is “when the crap hits the fan, how come it all landed on me.”

 

had a very good day. Smoked salmon on the grill and watched college football. Glad to see both Jalens Hurts and Alabama win. Hoping the same for the LSU tigers tonight. Geaux Tigers!
 

This is the lineup for the night. Started with a Pendleton’s that was a Christmas gift from my wife. Not a big Canadian whiskey fan but this is very nice. 
 

Moved on to an Evan Williams single barrel. This was my Father-in-laws favorite back when he drank and I have this in his memory. I miss him a great deal. Here’s to Garland!
 

Last up is the Calumet Farms.  Another Christmas gift but from my older sister this time. A bit more rye than I typically like but very enjoyable nonetheless. 
 

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
