Recommended Posts

I just watched the movie “Grease” for the first time...and...and... Dammit I liked it!!  Yeah...I ain’t too proud to say I liked it...
 
Maybe, It was the OGD114 in my glass during it that put me in the right frame of mind...  
 
 

What is happening to you?

If it wasn’t Valentine’s Day then I would take you up on that. We can’t have you all fugly and bleeding for mrssmokinjoe tonight. Especially since you will apparently be doing each others’ nails.

Sorry @flahute, I've been out of town and only just now saw this. Yep, I love that meme. To say that I detest autotunes is a gross understatement. Between the quality of the lyric writing, musicians who could actually play their instruments well (when there were real instruments), there's just no comparison. I could go on and on.....

 

On a Bourbon-y note, I'm having a wee dram of my birthday bottle of Old Fitz 15. I can't believe I'm saying this, since I'm not usually a wheater fan and have expressed as much, but this particular expression kicks some a-- and takes names! 

 

Cheers, 

Nancy

I have an OF15 incoming and I can't wait to try it, even more so due to your comments about it.

So... this was my Vday gift! I’ve been married 9yrs and she went above and beyond. She took a picture of my little bar and went to a liquor store. The gentleman talked her into this. I love that she did this but...

 

$100 bottle of this was absurd. I’ll post a review this evening. I’ll drink regardless but would take a 18$ bottle of powers any day 😅😅

 

”it’s the thought that counts”

Picked this up in Europe a few years back from a great Belgian SBer who hasn’t posted in a while.

 

Yeah unfortunately it seems he's checked out.  Too bad, he was a great contributor on here and the site misses him.

Hanging out with my other valentine for a few minutes.

(the cat, not the bottle)

 

 Yeah, the price on these is rather absurd. But the bourbon is rather delicious!

Love how oaky this release is.

Not quite as good as some of the best ECBP batches I’ve tried, but different and certainly somewhat unique in experience.

When you have BTAC, you don’t need friends 😂 J/k.

 

I still talk to him periodically.

He seems to be doing alright.

That's good to hear. Tell him we were wondering about him and he's welcome back.

I’ve been sitting on this a couple years. 2017. I know it’s sourced from places unknown (or known). There is a store in California I frequent because they’re good to me and they get a ton of it and sell it at $100. Which I just found out by tasting it that it’s not a good value. Anyway, weak nose, sweet on the palate, and pretty good finish.

1 ounce pour of 2019 4R LE.

1 ounce pour of 2019 OF BB.

 

The 4R was tasty but not $150 a bottle tasty. The BB was very meh. I’m glad I tried it at a bar.

WTKS PS to open up the "Galantines" Evening. Onto RRSIB. 

Both are good on their own merits.

This RRSiB is so chewy & oily.  

 

I am a fan of all of the 7 big houses.  But, I think an argument can be won, that The Russell boys are leading the pack day in and day out.

The last of it's kind. I guess I'm going to have to start buying the new shit. Have not bought any bourbon in quite awhile.

I think you will find the current batch of WTRB, a delight.  I highly recommend picking up a bottle.

I’ve had a rotation of a RR SiB from F-6, Bulleit BS batch 3 and Wilderness Trail SiB rye. All are very good but the Bulleit is so so good. I love the thick full bodied mouthfeel of 4R at barrel strength.

Last night after a great V-day dinner with some homemade bourbon, chocolate chunk cookies my wonderful wife made.

Took my wife out for Valentine’s Day dinner at Webster’s in Kalamazoo.  Arrived early so that we could have a drink in the bar before dinner.  Had a couple of boulevardiers.  The first with my stand by bourbon, Buffalo Trace and the second with Makers Mark when I was told that they were out of BT.  Frankly, I prefer the BT over the MM.   When back to the bar after dinner to listen to a friend perform for a while.  All in all, a good time was had by all.

 

I know a lot of guys hate VDay as being too commercial, but I actually enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with my wife by ourselves.  She is the primary caregiver for our handicapped daughter so she doesn’t get a lot of breaks.

Always a pleasant surprise when a mundane chain restaurant (whose entire selection of bourbon consists of KC and MM) serves your generous KC pour in a nice brandy snifter :)

Having a very good glass of 1792 12y. This bottle has really opened up, I’m enjoying it a lot more then when I first opened it.

Glad to hear that others don’t have an issue with Valentines Day.
