Royal Salute 21. Easily exceeded relatively high expectations.

I consider paying $12 for a four-pack of Founders Breakfast Stout a splurge! With my taste buds, I think I would not appreciate the Royal Salute 21.

Have you ever tried Pappy Van Winkle?

Haha no I have not and a quick google was kind of awe inspiring. My typical hard stuff is in the $30-50 a bottle range. Once in a while the $200-300/bottle but above that is where I get to the point where I rather buy a case of good $50 a bottle type stuff than just one bottle of legendary booze. I saw a 72 year McCallans at the liquor store for $140k and first thought was "what happens if the guy stocking the shelves drops it?".

I do like the Founders as well. A few of the DuClaw varieties I liked when I tried them a couple years ago as well. The oatmeal/peanut butter/ chocolate/espresso ones I find are great when they are done right.

For the super whisky nerd, I recommend a trip to Denver:

This is amazing and certainly worthy of utilizing a gift from the Donald/congress which is the 2021-22 tax deduction for "triple martini" lunches!

Looks like my kind of place too, but I would go for the home brewed beers rather than the whiskeys. I really don’t drink whiskeys much, but prefer the smoother Irish whiskeys over the scotch’s generally.

I am currently having a bit Calvados, which is my favorite goto drink for something a bit stronger.
Life is too short for cheap beer and wine.

Havana Club aņejo 7 year (this bottle is actually 13 years old now).
When I run out, I may have to visit the duty free at Galeão again.

The only thing I like as well as Havana Club is Flor de Caņa.
The darks are great with a splash of Coke & a lime.
The lights make great raspberry Mojitos.

For tonight, our next to the last bottle of 2000 Chateau Branaire (Duluc-Ducru) - St Julian. Probably open a newer Bordeaux later or just sip on some Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva.

Happy New Year All
