    There was some hibiki on the shelf the other day at Total Wine in Denton... Almost picked it up but I am not a fan of single malts. Maybe I should have?

    Desperation Plea....

    If anyone happens to come across some E.H. Taylor Amaranth in the coming weeks please let me know! I want to try this stuff and it's gonna be a limited run and will be probably only available to allocation lists or buddies, but I'm crossing my fingers. :fingerscrossed::fingerscrossed::fingerscrossed: Willing to make it worth it.


    :cheers:

    My parents have decided to move out of state, with this my dad doesnt want to move that much stuff, so he gave me a lot of his whiskey (score) and he also gave me his ice WinterSmith's iceball mold. Stoked about this, he didnt know but I was looking at cheaper versions of this on Amazon, this one will do 4 instead of 2 and will do ball ice as well as cube. In the freezer now, looking forward to clear ice!

    I live in Elkhorn, still close enough to get to games on Saturday's but away from the terrible drivers in Lincoln on a daily basis haha. I spend a good chunk of my time out in Wood River (home of the great Scott Frost) on my in-laws farm. Cybersecurity guy by trade, trading in system security for dirt/humidity/heat/bugs whenever they need me haha.

    personally I think it tasted nice. im no connoisseur by any means though. it also depends on the age of the hibiki. I think the one we have was 9 years old? id have to double check. if the bottle isn't super expensive then id say give her a try.

    excellent! I still need to get the wife up there for a game. I have been to a UT game here. I stood out really good in my Husker apparel :rofl:

    To make this whiskey related... If we are ever in/near Lincoln around the same time, First one is on me :thumbsup::cheers:

    Haven't pulled the trigger on any garrison whiskies yet but I'm real curious. How's that Balmorhea? Visited Blamorhea once, not much to that little town but the spring fed park was a nice desert oasis.

    Currently enjoying a little Edradour 9yo Madeira cask night cap... tired as hell tonight!

    Nose is calm. Little hint of chocolate.

    Taste is claimed as:


    Screenshot_20190712-225357.jpg

    Caught my attention!


    Taste to me...

    Leather and tobacco. Real strong. I don't have a trained palate. But I'm hoping sitting a couple weeks opens it up. $70 for a boot flask (375 ml). Hard pass...

    Just got back from a friend's house drinking habanero IPA homebrew, Westbrook Mexican Cake ( Imperial Stout habanero chocolate etc).

    Got home poured the last sample from the Heaven Hill sampler, Pikesville Rye. Liked it. Now some Whistlepig 10 yo Rye, and off to bed.

    Perfect. Here is W.T.F. I'm drinking right now. Been cooking since 11 pm last night. About to put a mess of food in the other smoker, but first, a little liver lubrication.

    Well the first run results are in. I should have gone a couple more hours. However, clear ice!
