    Terrific dram to enjoy the warmth and taste! I see that your "library" of whiskeys has a good many options. Be warm and cheers sir.



    I have just arrived home and have started some cajun catfish grilling on the grill. The spicy fish finds me enjoying a dram of Yamazaki 12 on some chopped ice. I am thinking that the full flavored whiskey on ice will pair up well with the heat of the catfish.

    Apologies for the messy stack of hats in the background of the pic. My messy "workbench, " teak desk, will take some effort to clear by working/cleaning/steaming/blocking a bunch of hats. Cheers.

  2. Blackened Cajun catfish with dirty rice & jalapeño hush puppies are a big favorite of mine. No talapia for me, thanks! I usually pair that with a nut brown ale but I like your idea of the Yamazaki.

    Thanks Eric. The Catfish sounds great !

    I've been drinking Scotch (and to a lesser degree Irish Whiskey) for about 35 years, after I graduated from Crown Royal, LOL.

    Like Jack was saying above, I love going to Irish/English Pubs whenever I see them and trying something I haven't had before. I've kinda settled on the Macallan 12 as my every day dram, and enjoy the Highland/Speysides the most, especially the Sherry Cask Aged. I do always keep several Islay's around though for when in the mood for a "Real Man's Drink"....

    I tried several of the Japanese Single Malts when they were in their infancy and didn't really care for them. Seemed unrefined back then, but I guess I should try them again.

    Cheers.

    It was Whiskey with an 'e', as in a couple shots of Knob Creek 120 after witnessing some trauma.

  9. Thanks DD! Being a 3x6 NOR in a No.1Q I like it a lot. I don't recall seeing one before. I'm very happy to own it, maybe even saved it!

    Such a great hat and sounds like a good time was had. I wish we knew the model of that hat. It's the very same as my 7X CB.

  12. Thanks BB. It has the 2nd generation embossing & no protector over the crest.

    My latest No.1Q has the 2nd generation embossing with an early celephane-like plastic protector, so I'm thinking it's a few yrs older.

    It is older than my 7X but of the same model and it's older than both of my No. 1's.

    Enjoying a Saint Arnold Christmas Ale with the Portis at home this evening. I know it’s early, but I’m always waiting for the Winter Beers.....

  15. Sacrificed good beer for good Q in my MBCD fresh out of summer slumber. Could use a steam touchup. Bad camera exposure, it's mid-brown. Great pulled pork butt & grilled pineapple steaks, with a cored & grilled apple in a crushed Oreo crust for dessert.

    Holiday cheers! Malty or spiced beers are excellent.

    The dinner menu sounds tasty. Mmmm...

    Home shortly ago and starting to grill a beer can chicken. An open can of All Day IPA inside the cavity of a dressed chicken with a cajun dry rub on the skin and inside. The hoppy beer flavor permeates the meat adding to the taste of the dry rub. I am sipping a Founders Oatmeal Breakfast Stout while supervising the grill. My wife is preparing some oven roasted potatoes and steamed green beans with mushrooms and onions. That is way plenty at this time of night.

    BTW: Gannon (green moss felt with charcoal gill trimmings).

    Cheers, Eric -
