    I usually buy my dad 4 Roses Small Batch, want to switch it up. 50 is the price.

    McKenna 10, Russell 10, Eagle Rare. Any of those would be solid choices and if he usually drinks small batches should be pretty close proof wise to what he’s used to.

    I know we are a Bourbon club, but my sister owns a restaurant in Stockholm, Sweden and they brew their own beer and now distill their own gin mainly for use in the restaurant. I just got my two bottles today. I have never been a gin fan before, but this is delicious. Very perfumey and leaves a really pleasant after taste.

    She only made 200 bottles in her first batch, but I am encouraging her to think about considering expansion, especially since she is getting killed in the restaurant business in Sweden right now with Covid.

    Well that's super cool. Are you originally from Sweden or is she the one that made the move?

    No, I have only lived in two States, NY and Florida (at school). Haven't strayed very far. She moved to Italy and then Paris and then Amsterdam after college and lived in Paris and NY for many years. Usually the location involved teaching positions. About 6 or 7 years ago she took a professor job at a school outside of Stockholm, and has dual citizenship. If it is possible, she may even have triple citizenship with France, but not sure that is a thing. She owns a place there also. She speaks a ridiculous amount of languages fluently. Me, not so much. Polar opposites in pretty much every way, except we both like women.

    what's the vote on brandy/cognac/armagnac? good shit that most bourbon drinkers like, but not big enough to have its own thread?

    I have too many vices at the moment, as it is. I'll just taste from Keef's stash when we're allowed to be around other humans again. Thanks though.

    Moved into my new house today, unpacked a box from storage and a 1792 somehow made it into storage. It's now in my liver. Thought I packed all my bourbon up to hold onto while the house was being built :idk:

    Drinking my 4 Roses Al Young sample tonight to celebrate.

    It just didn’t have a lot going on compared to the others IMO.

    It’s certainly good, but the flavor and nose of the others were incredible while Lot B was muted.

    Had probably #1 hangover of 2020 today. Very easy to poison oneself with high proof delicious brown drank.

    What did I do tonight? More delicious brown drank.
