    I've been enjoying devil's cut. Cheap but strong and spicy. Of everything there, the lagavulin 16 is my least preferred. Way too much peat. Just finished a Oban 14yr that was delicious.

    Lagavulin is a great balance of peat and sweet. Peat is one of those things you like or you don't. It reminds me of campfires others think it tastes like an ashtray.

    My wife got me a box of Johnnie Walker taster bottles for Xmas. In the glass is Gold Label Reserve and I’ll chase that with the 18yr

    Try these if you haven't, works VERY well with tequila.


    Agave nectar is also a nice substitute for sugar or simple syrup.

    One of my all time favorite cask strength bourbons. Too bad they don't make this anymore. They replaced it with a 108.8 barrel...


    Have you bought a bottle of the new 108.8 Belle Meade? I too was disappointed with it on first taste and put the cork back in. Tried it again a few weeks later and found that it was GREATLY improved, and pretty much tasted the same as the old batch. Apparently the new stuff needs some air in the bottle to open up properly.

    I have one right now along with the old handwritten bottles... its not bad at all...but it's not a delicious gem like the old ones...at least for me.

    Been trying to find me some Old Elk wheat and Woodinville Barrel proof... not a fan of Old Elk small batch but I hear the wheat is great. Huge fan of all things Woodinville...
    Our local bourbon group has a pick of each right now. I really like the Woodinville, the Old Elk wheated isn't really my thing.

    Tonight is just 3 or four fingers, 🤔, ok, a whole damned fist of Buffalo Trace. The regular stuff. It was a bad day.

    Am my own worst influence. Talked myself into a small Tequila Old Fashioned after two Wild Turkeys.

    Single rocks glass, puddle of agave nectar, 12 drops (3 dashes) of Jerry Thomas bitters, 2 Oz of Tapatio Anejo and fill with Kold-Draft type large ice cubes.

    Well, at least your day ended on a good note! ;)

    I think Buffalo Trace is just fine; enough rye in the mashbill to make it interesting and nothing else that upsets the balance.

    Finished up with one of my "Lazy Bastiche" Cocktails.

    Old Fashioned with puddle of simple syrup, about 8 dashes of Regan's No. 6 Orange Bitters, 2 Oz of Old Grand-Dad 100 Pf BiB, fill with good Kold-Draft type large ice cubes.

    Inspired to mix similar, with the last of the Rittenhouse Rye and Angostura orange. OGD BiB is an exceptional value, need another bottle myself...
