I love that phone salutation!
Me too. I’ve been rewatching the 6 seasons for something to do. This hot summer I have rewatched the 4 seasons of Yellowstone, 1 season of 1883 & 1 season of Mayor of Kingstown. I watched Lonesome Dove. I guess Deadwood is next.

I have a bundle order out for delivery today from Santa Fe Spirits, Santa Fe, NM.

There's also Justified... and Pappy Van Winkle (if you can get ahold of any... which I can't).

Stetson Playboy while trying out Steve Austin’s Broken Skull American Lager by El Segundo brewing co and watching Miami Dolphins come back from 21 point deficit in the 4th quarter to beat Baltimore Ravens. A feat not duplicated in 12 years... all teams down 21 or more points in the 4th quarter since 2011 had a combined record of 0-711 in those games. Crazy game!!

This is my first time getting to try out any of SCSA’s Broken Skull offerings as they had not been available here locally until now. This one… American Lager comes in at 4.8% ABV and is a very smooth drinking beer. It is fairly flavorful with a bit of citrusy flavors coming through but not bitter at all. A very enjoyable beer overall. And I’d have to give it an “Ohhh Hell Yeah”. I will definitely seek out his ‘higher octane‘ Broken Skull
IPA on my next liquor store visit.

A salute to fall and felt with a 2021 Macallan Rare Cask with a 2022 Gannon Big Four. This scotch is as velvety smooth as described and so is the Gannon. Salud!

(Full disclosure: I had already drank a glass of the rare cask and then thought to shoot this photo. I wasn't going to pour another just for the photo so the glass in the photo is holding a splash of The Glenlivet 12 year.)

Salud! I am not currently sipping anything as special as your magnificent Mac Rare Cask, but I do tip my glass of Guinness in your general direction.

I had to go to a Whiskey Vault YouTube review to find out about your whiskey.


Dang after the review I would like to taste the whiskey. Cheers to you sir!

Watching the above vid has me salivating for a taste of whiskey. To sate my desire I just poured a dram of a MaCallan 12. Thanks for the whiskey diversion tonight!

Sounds like a terrific whiskey evening tonight.

I am a fan of single malt. The rare cask was a gift for doing a friend a favor (nothing illegal ;)). It is the best whisky I have had in recent memory. The only possible contender would be the first scotch I ever had - back in about 1987 - The Royal Salute (Chivas).
Maybe it's time to pick one up and have a taste test?

The Fall season is starting to bring out some darker colors starting with this Navy blue VS in 100X.

And the weather has brought a taste for Stouts with the taste of oatmeal & molasses. Sammy Smith is the best but being from the UK (not on tap) is a bit pricey.

Even a desert beer. One or two of these with some salty white kernel popcorn would be great. Or pretzels.

Colin Kegan is an Englishman with an extensive career in Irish Single Malt whiskies. Ten yrs ago he moved to Santa Fe, NM & started Santa Fe Spirits. He has become a leader in the new & growing American Single Malt whiskies & his have been winning awards. Several of his malts are known for the barley being dried with mesquite wood fires Producing a pleasant woodsmoke flavor. I recently made a bundle buy & had it shipped in.

First bottle opened was Santa Fe Mesquite wood @ 92 proof.

A few days later I opened a bottle of the Apple Brandy Cask Finished. The Apple Brandy Cask Finished has won several awards. Tastes of NM apples, toffee & butterscotch. Not overly sweet but not citrusy. Perfect for a Fall apertiff & reminds me of a good Speyside. Wonderful aroma

Still to be opened is a bottle of the 118 proof Cask Strength.
