  • Re: Valentine's Day

    We never go out on that day anymore either.

    Surf and surf: seared ahi tuna (instead of steak) and sous vide lobster tails.

    Still deciding on sides/sauces/apps/whatever, but also doing chocolate covered strawberries.

  • Re: OT: Bourbon by Value

    Some nice suggestions already!  If I may go a bit OT, someone mentioned Breaking and Entering Bourbon which is blended by a great distiller named Lance Winters from St. Georges Spirits in California.  As mentioned, they do not make they bourbon but went and tasted at a number of the bourbon houses and purchased barrels that they liked and then blended themselves.  Easy drinking and a good bourbon.  As much as I like B&E bourbon, in my opinion, their gins (3 distinctly different flavor profiles), single malt scotch and their absinthe is where they truly standout.

    Also, it's not a bourbon but if you get a chance treat yourself to a bottle of WhistlePig.  It is a rye whiskey and it is pretty stellar.

    We went to St. George's once. SWMBO loves B&E and is her favorite bourbon.  I am not as big of a fan and get a lot of banana notes? (maybe wheat content? idk)  I agree that their gins and absinthe are among best I have had.

    Might save up for whistle pig one day!

    For a "higher end" (for me, above $30 is special occasion) also thinking Woodford Double-Oaked or Angel's Envy.

    We were fortunate to buy at the lowest market point in 20 years and in a suburb!
