The 10yr is Old Rip Van Winkle, not Pappy.
The whiskey is a lot different today than what they built their name on. Originally, Pappy was a rye bourbon from the Boone Distillery. In the early...

Decided to attempt thinning the herd of sample bottles. Starting with some Wild Turkey 8yr 101pf from 1986.

Starting early with some Old Weller Antique from a barrel we purchased back in 2013. Love me a good wheater!

I love a good IPA. It seems like there are so many to choose from these days that a lot of them sit on the shelf too long and go bad. Always check dates when IPA shopping.

I'm not a big fan of scotch. But a lot of my drinking buddies are so I've been able to taste through just about everything Scotland has the offer. Bourbon is my whiskey of choice.

If you like Chivas, give Clynelish 14yr a try. I believe Clynelish is a good part of the Chivas blend.
Clynelish 14 is a great gateway scotch. It really carries the barley profile nicely, and is...

It just means that it comes from a single distillery. In Ireland it's called Single Pot Still, in Scotland it's called Single Malt. The most comparative wording in the USA would be a Bonded whiskey.

My point was that you only get to see the finished product twice, three times if you're lucky. You can't really decide on what to change for the better until the first one is completely matured. ...

Touche. Just trying to get folks to think beyond how easy a whiskey is to pound and chase with a beer.
A lot of time and effort goes into producing a good whiskey, and it should not be a rushed...

This was my favorite Irish from a recent tasting.

Regular Jameson is pretty light on the nose with a decent barley backbone. It's rather uninteresting on the palate. Sugar water with very light vanilla and fruit. The mouthfeel is pretty thin and...

I don't mean this in a negative way, but when someone mentions that a whisk(e)y is "smooth", the guys in my group immediately disregard everything that person has to say.

We go to a bunch of distilleries, they roll out a bunch of barrels. We taste through and pick the ones we want.
Because of the three tier system, you can't just roll out of there with a barrel in...

Made my annual Kentucky pilgrimage to buy a bunch of barrels of bourbon...

Going through a lot of barrel picks tonight. Here are all of the barrel picks I've been part of, with a few missing.

Damn good stuff.

Weller 12 has gotten very hard to find the past few years. I enjoy it quite a bit, but I prefer the added proof of Old Weller Antique. That too has gotten hard to find, so some friends and I have...

I found 5 of these in the back of my bunker that I forgot about. Yum!

Took a bunch of bottles to a friends wedding. 'Twas a great time!!

Went to Smooth Ambler in WV last weekend and purchased two barrels of whiskey with some friends. It won't be bottled for a few months, but we've picked barrels in the past, so that's what I've been...
Lizano? You can buy it from Peppers.com, which happens to be located in Rehoboth. I love that place.
I love hot sauce as well. All of the El Yucatecos are great. The green is my favorite, but...
I've cold smoked salmon and plenty of cheeses. You've got me hungry for cold smoked salmon on a bagel with cream cheese, pickled onions, and capers. Damn you!!
