    Pacing after a bourbon blind tasting that concluded around an hour ago with my 34 yo son.  

    The Bardstown Bourbon Company Fusion 6 Series was the consensus winner and the McKenna 10 yo anchored the offerings.  
    As always it was an enjoyable event.
    A nod to @JohnInCarolina as the Empire of Pain is in the background.  A great read.  Only around 1/2 through but an eye-opening story.  
    Havent had the series 6 but the series 4 of that bardstown was great. I have a series 6 of the discovery series and not sure it was worth the price but its good also.

    I know some of you probably already think I have a screw (or two) loose

    Maybe just a little bit 😂🤣 but this post looked like there was an actual human being behind the keyboard.  Some of your other posts are looking like a mix of human/AI/bot 🤷‍♂️

    I have family members that are struggling with pain and opioid addiction, not a fun place to be for sure.


    Oh they're all 100% human. The ol' noggin just goes totally sideways sometimes. I'm harmless, I swear 😁

    Regarding the chronic pain.. After years of the oral meds I agreed to get a morphine pump inserted in a pocket under the skin of my abdomen. The pump has a reservoir that held morphine, and a line was run from the pump, under my skin, around my body and connected to the base of my spinal column. It would automatically drip morphine directly into my spinal column. The whole idea is that you take far less medication to get the same amount of pain relief. Sounds great ... but I developed a hematoma around the pump and the wound wouldn't heal. My surgeon had me going to a wound care specialist every single day, and I had to pay to reserve a procedure room every time, just in case he finally decided it needed to be cut open. After about a week of that, I told my surgeon to just take it out. I was in OR  later that day. It was bad, the skin was pitch black from the pooling blood underneath and the wound was constantly, but slowly seeping blood. I was genuinely concerned about dying from that whole thing.

    Good times

    Everything I’ve tried so far has been very good.  I even liked their pilsner.

    Have my soon to be Son In Law’s bachelor party this weekend so I am already liver-prepping.   

    I’ve heard tale of others bringing some good stuff but I’ll have a new bottle of WT, Maestro Dobel and Tito’s.   

    This is me for tonight

    One I’ve never tried. I love finished whiskey and that sherry and cognac finish sound delicious to this guy. Enjoy! 🥃

    I am not a tequila guy but after trying a high end (I presume) I like.   Won’t buy it but can appreciate it.   

    If your boss gave you that, cheers—you’re doing something, if not many things, right!   Keep us posted.  

    I will be delving into a maestro Dobel and Codigo tomorrow.

    Codigo is really good. I have the pink and the anejo and they are both good.

    Trying another JD expression. I like the bonded better but it’s plenty drinkable. 
  • Having Buffalo Trace single barrel store pick neat. So good.
  • YbabpmutsYbabpmuts Posts: 359
    I don't get buffalo trace. I got a bottle yesterday, and on the bottle itself is an outline of a Buffalo aka the "trace" but right above that on a paper label is a picture of a whole buffalo, so WHAT the hell is it, a trace or a whole buffalo?

    Listen .. I'm fine with paying buffalo trace pricing for the whole buffalo ..  but I'll be honest .. I'm gonna be really mad if I've been paying whole buffalo prices for just a trace of buffalo.

    First it was gorilla marketing and now this?

    I guess if the bottle is full, you have a whole buffalo

    Calumet 15 w a Privada club stick. Cheers!


  • lousubcaplousubcap Posts: 26,718
    @pgprescott - all I know of Calumet is that the farm ( around 65 miles from here) is the home of the 1941 and 1948 Triple Crown winners Whirlaway and Citation.
    Their thoroughbred business took many hits in the recent past but the fundamental farm/stable seems to be on solid ground today.  FWIW-
    Louisville; "indeterminate Jim" here.  Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!

    I’m a fan of this 15. I also have the 14 which is sweeter, less oak influenced. I just picked up a new 16. Worth the price of admission imo. I was aware of the lineage in horse racing as I have a buddy in your back yard who’s family had some horses race at Churchill downs in past generations.

    I have a bottle of the small batch (8 & 14yr blend) that I found to be ok.  The flavors are nice, but for $80 I was expecting a bit from it.  Finding it hard to pony up for the older ones.  My regular stops have plenty bottles of the 14-16.  Most of the online reviews I seen are mixed.  Those who liked the 15 don't care as much for the 16 and those who like the 16 didn't care for the 15.

    I’ve passed on some of the regular offerings. I do prefer the Sam Houston 15 to the calumet but they are both plenty good. The 14 is a sweet bomb. My buddy loves it. It’s almost too easy to drink imo. Haven’t tried the 16 but I’ve seen excellent reviews from some sources I tend to line up with. Time will tell. Some of the more aged bourbons aren’t for everyone. I like the oak accents but it’s not for everyone. I think my love for Napa cabs influences me.
