    That’s THE standard budget Bourbon for me.
    Just excellently balanced, not too mellow and with the right punch to go very well as a mixer and neat for my taste.
    And Jimmy Russell is a true legendary dinosaur.

    Tried the Bulleitt Rye last night. I liked it better than the bourbon.

    I’ll try that 16yo Mortlach tonight.

    Nose is already promising, bags of Seville oranges, kumquats, bright tobacco, cereals...:)

    Good People Snake Handler 2x IPA. Not as hoppy as I was expecting for a double IPA, but consistent (as in too sweet and heavy for my preference) with their other beers.

    Just a few Angry Orchards last night while sitting out back on the deck reading and listening to some Big Sandy.

    I love cider, the stuff you get widely here is Bulmer´s, sometimes Strongbow and different bottlings from Bretagne/Normandy in France.
    What I also find really nice is ginger wine from UK, also as a mixer. Stone´s is what could be found often here.

    A little JD #7 took the edge off a long day at work yesterday.

    Hi
    I read up on the Ginger Wine and they mention Stone's in Wikipedia. I'll try some, but I'm not really optimistic. I love Ginger ale, I love Beer, I hate Ginger Beer, go figure. In theory I should love Moscow Mules etc.

    In emergency case you could dump it in Whiskey-, Rum-, Brandy...Sours, use it as ingredient for kind of a Julep.

    Cheers

    A couple pints of Guinness to make it through watching the Chicago Bears blow their lead against the Detroit Lions.

    Nice drop!

    I like the „hey‘y / cow barn‘y“ edge of these Kilchomans.

    Last evening, I tried something new.

    White Vermouth wine + pineapple juice 50/50.

    Not recommendable. :D
