Back Friday afternoon from some business travel and I dropped my bags and headed outside to enjoy a Guinness. Ahhh.

NBD! This Balcones Texas Single Malt has earned a spot on my bar. Even though the mouthfeel is normal, not thick, & it doesn't curtain the glass, it is rich tasting. The taste up front is predominantly an overripe pears & apples Southern fried fruit pastries taste from growing up. Some toasted toffee & oats taste, barley malt, & Oak wood from aging a min of 24 months. Non chill filtered & no color added. I get more toasted Oak wood, mild/different smoke than Peat, & cloves in the aftertaste. Maybe cinnamon; @ 106 proof I get a warming sensation but not a burning. I'm impressed; this stands out.

Early morning it was time for cold brewed coffee.

Before 8:00am I visited the neighbors after breakfast (Oatmeal and a Founders All Day IPA) to confirm that using my chainsaw would not be a problem. Good to go.

Post yard efforts I fixed fish stew. A small dram of Glenlivet Caribbean Reserve paired well today. I tried pipeting some water to see what changes in the whiskey I would appreciate. I found I preferred no water to this whiskey.

Celebrating a good report card on my annuals. Doctor said whatever you’re doing, just keep doing it. So I celebrated with a few early afternoon pints of Dunkel & my Resistol 3X felted edge.

Got a text that it was all you can eat pork spare ribs while they last. I definitely over ate & may have over hydrated. Same hat, different lighting.

I enjoying some low ABV beer during this past weeks walkabouts. Founders All Day IPA was my evening beers.

I needed a change of pace and yesterday took the opportunity to enjoy a small dram of Red Breast 12 whiskey. IMO, it is a tasty and well blended Irish whiskey. It is a whiskey to keep stocked on the shelf.

This mornings breakfast beer was a Surley Supreme. Goes well with oatmeal.

Enjoy the 4th of July (American followers of this thread) weekend. Cheers, Eric -

An American holiday weekend should be spent surrounded by truly American icons such as the Western Cowboy hat, American raised beef, & sipping American distilled whiskey.

After a day spent under a Ritch Rand Tom Horn & a meal including a KY bourbon marinated, home raised ribeye steak grilled over charcoal, it’s time for some Balcones Texas sipping Single Malt Whisky, while I resume watching the American classic, Lonesome Dove, started last night.
