“Short Path” 100% Barley Whiskey. Distilled not far from me in Everett, MA
Vodka and cokes. Drank more booze in 2020 than all of 2014-2019 combined. Time to pull the plug on this thread for me in 2021 . Untill then.. see ya tomorrow
Bell’s Third Coast Old Ale and Blue Note Cask Strength bourbon. Fantastic!
Korbel California “ Champagne” Extra Dry; toasting with my son for a a Happier New Year.
Angel's Envy. Always Angel's Envy. But also assorted whisk[e]y and Cokes, and some Old Fashioned cocktails. Happy New Year!
E-Z Swords "We Don't Sell Swords" NEIPA from Eagle Park Brewing Co. Muskego, WI. Another special delivery from Wisconsin. A little citrus and floral note on the nose. Rich, I know that’s not a flavor but that's what I thought on the first sip. It has that tropical fruit sweet balanced by a mild pithy bitter, Lots of green notes from an abundance of hops, and good hops! Has a mild resiny pine finish on both taste and feel. Simply delicious!
Lagavulin 8 yr.
Last night, before the year’s turn, my son and I drank it in memory of my wife.
We’ve done that regularly since Christmas night, the night she passed away.
My condolences to you and your family.
George Dickel Rye for me tonight.
Salted Maple Stout from Central Waters Brewing in Amherst, WI. Another from my Wisconsin Brother and as usual it does not disappoint. You get the maple syrup on the nose, not real strong but there. Starts with a creamy smooth sweet maple syrup flavor then puts out some salty roasted malt notes but with the maple syrup staying in the mix front to back. The flavors are crisp and bright, a new and unusual flavor for me that on the other hand seems like an old favorite.
Just sampled some spicy pickled eggs I put up a week ago. Paired one with Jack Daniels Rye.
Picked up a bottle of Larceny the other night. Got to taste it at that time. It was enjoyable, and it's on the menu tonight. Also picked up a six pack of holiday brew kraft beer, but the name escapes me. It tasted strongly of peaches and pecans, and was nice to drink out of a glass.
Espresso Martini as the old saying goes
Barreled Blonde Cinnamon Pear barrel aged Ale from NoCoast Beer Co. in Oskaloosa, IA. I can smell the pear and maybe a hint of wine. Tasting the wine right up front, the cinnamon pear follows. The only familiar beer taste I get is a slight hop bitter at the finish. Tastes good but if you want your beer to taste like beer this ain't it.
Blanton's Single Barrel. Got a quote on fixing the termite damage. While I'm burning money I might as well enjoy some good bourbon....
Jim Beam “Devil’s Cut” Bourbon.
That stuff is too smoky for me! I've gone through a bottle in the past, but I swore it to be my last.
Agreed, but I’m no longer as a big fan of “smooth” as I used to be.
Double dry hopped King Sue DIPA from Toppling Goliath in Dechora IA. Tropical, big citrus and mango aroma. A straight up hop bomb! All kinds of fresh citrus and tropical fruit flavor, has some pithy dryness with a juicy green finish. Super fresh, bottled 12 days prior so I guess it is good and fresh!
