I need a book.



Down Range by Taylor Moore.

Picked it up without knowing if it was any good and I was impressed 8)

Tried Longbranch bourbon last night.
No taste to it, I'm glad I never bought a bottle.

I had a few pours of Old Forrester single barrel Friday night, it's not bad but a not very tasteful.

I have a fridge full of Trillium, Bellflower, Bissel Brothers, etc.......

Off bourbon for a while.

Did have some screwball peanut butter whiskey at a party.

Despite it sounding awful, and being a bit of a bourbon purist, it was delicious.

I look for new stuff.

But standards are Buffalo Trace / Blantons / Eagle Rare 10 / Michters / 4 Roses.

I even like Makers Mark.

Just depends on whether I feel like spending 30 / 40 / 50 bucks.

Both, Like Grape said you can't go wrong with Michters or the whole Buffalo Trace line but he missed Old Weller 107.

...When it comes to collecting I've slowed down because there is so much new stuff coming out so I'd rather save my money and try to find a hard to get bottle or two per season.

And then Saturday I stop in a place to pick up beer for a party and they had a bottle of Stagg Jr for a real good price :o

This all seems overcomplicated and a lot of effort.

A cold Heineken is good enough for me  8)

Those of us not locked on islands surrounded by sharks have a few more options.

Poured a nice glass of Eagle Rare 10, lit a good cigar, grabbed a book, and sat on the back deck in the hammock.
It started to rain so I moved all of the above except the hammock under the patio in front of the garage.


....then it stops raining >:(
