      @Sublime one , I just got a message from Waleed. He has a 15 year old bourbon for Ted and I to barrel pick. He wouldn't tell me the distillery though. Tomorrow maybe the day.

          We're on for 2:00. Pics to follow. A 15 year will take some time. I have my eyedropper bottle ready in case we need to tame the beast and a couple Wee Glencarin's. I ordered 2 more so we have 3 Wee's each. The barrel pick samples come in 3's.

            Not as stunning as we had hoped. It was 2 Bull Run samples, a Pinot Noir finish barreled in 2007 and a corn forward whiskey barreled in 2008. The Pinot finish had a fruity nose but not much carried over to the palate which was pretty hot even at only 120 proof. We added a little water which helped a lot. The whiskey was better and more enjoyable but not complex. Both were kind of meh to us. Now to tell Waleed our real opinions. LOL

                    The Elijah Craig is a barrel pick that Ted and I did. It has turned into a delicious 133.6 proof sipper.

                      I have watched you and Ted sip. That bottle of EC has got no chance! Hah! Wish I was there!

                              Don't think I've tried that one, but Flying Dog has some great brews. Gonzo is yummy.

                                      I like gin and tonic in the summer. Ted has some Gin from Corsair Distillery that we drink neat. It is smooth, interestingly different, and delicious.

                                      I found Bluecoat gin out of Philadelphia. Likewise it carries itself very nicely neat or in a cocktail.... :thumbsup:
