    Went to a funeral for a long time friend in Durham this Saturday. Went to a bar to “pre-game” before dinner. They had a limited wine menu but I noticed a decent scotch selection. It had been awhile since I had visited the Isle of Skye (had Talisker), I ordered a dram. The wife had a taste and immediately said “ wow, we need some of this!” So, we have this understanding, Valentine’s Day is the worst day to eat out, order flowers, etc, so we don’t do any of that. I showed up tonight with this bottle of Talisker as her valentine’s present. She was very pleased. I definitely “out kicked my coverage”when I married her. Happy Valentines Day and cheers!

    McKenna gain. Ok, but not up to Woodford or Smichters.

    Killed one of the kegs of home brew tonight. It was a nice easy drinking ale. We have a super hoppy IPA keg still working but at about 9% ABV you have to be careful with that one. The wife is gonna be mad when she gets home because that means she has to brew this weekend.

    Excuse me miss. I believe I ordered the large?

    I swear that’s like Campbell’s cup o latte.

    Got one...with a steam shower and hot tub and a fire place. Hence the dirty talk. Just kidding. We’d be just as dirty on a Tuesday night. #itshowweroll

    Picked up a bottle of Breckenridge bourbon from the Alphabet store this afternoon.... feel like I am betraying my beloved scotch.
    Super smooth and easy sweet finish.

    I’ll have to keep an eye out for it. I’m sure I’ll find it pretty easily being so close to MD now.

    It is ok. About right for where it is priced. Still prefer Woodford’s or Smichters.

    For $30 a bottle, i'm happy with it. I need to try the Mitchers, when I can afford it.

    Discovered these tonight. Finished in beer caskes. Only a $5 premium over regular Jameson.

    Trying the IPA right now and I have to say it’s a big flavor difference. I dig it.

    It has been a while since I had any bourbon and they have been advertising this on TV a bunch so I figured I need to try it out. Going to take a couple drinks to figure it out.

    Technically I was drinking Modelo but her drink was tasty and made for a better pic... Some kind of hibiscus margarita...

    I don’t have a problem, it’s called a beer tasting and it’s classy.

    Ever been to a baby shower for a dude getting ready for his first kid at 42?

    Oh yeah, it was at a brewery, and most of the gifts were bourbon and rye. Thankfully we know the owner and we had started sampling a bit of each while ordering different beers to go with different pours from the bottles.

    Blantons - always a big fan!
    Pritchard- not bad, interesting, kinda tastes like hay or straw.
    WhistlePig 10 year - still good, but better in an old fashioned IMO.
    EH Taylor's single barrel- damn! Need more of this goodness.

    There was more, but I can remember at the moment and I didn't take any pics. I'm sure someone did and they get passed around at some point.

    Opened that big ass bottle of Woodford’s last night. The evening ended at 3 am. Needless to say I am drinking water tonight.
