Anesthesia from Anesthesia. Nice.

I drank a pint of Cutty Sark on New Year's Eve when I was 17. A shame I ruined myself for (allegedly) good booze on bottom shelf crap.

Snagged these today.

Had a taste of the Connemara the other week, Buffalo Trace nothing new...and Howler Head... I kept seeing it advertised on UFC...so since the lady and I are watching some UFC on the big screen tomorrow, I snagged it.

I'm conflicted when it comes to Connemara. I'm a big fan of Irish Whiskeys...and also of Scotch including the real peaty ones. So when I have Connemara I'm thinking "I want Irish whiskey. If I wanted peat I'd get an Islay Scotch. Are you not confident enough in your whiskey to let us try it without the smoke?"

Ultimately I tell my inner monologue to STFU and I just enjoy the hootch.

I went to a Super Bowl party and almost brought a bottle as a joke.

When I got there, he already had one, mostly gone.

***UPDATE*** Howler Head-

It is good to me. A little on the sweet side to have it by itself, but once I find something it goes with, I wouldn't buying another bottle...

When Howler Head grows up, loses the sweetness of youth, and has its big boy balls drop.

I'm fine with the very slight banana that comes naturally from a nice high proof Jack Daniels or Old Forester, but I think that's about as far as I go down that road. I did buy Traverse City's cherryfest kit this past year which came with 200ml each of a 70 proof cherry infused whiskey and their barrel strength (110 proof), those didn't suck. The 70 tasted like cherry water and most of it ended up in a batch of cherry old fashiond's, the barrel proof is actually decent and is still sitting on the bar

Not much activity in here lately, so I'll fire it up again. Had some Maker's Mark Cask Strength earlier, now I'm having some WT101.
