    Fun facts: there is no liquor store in blue ridge. Never knew that until last weekend when I was camping there. Fortunately i always bring my own bourbon when camping. It’s slightly out of the way and probably won’t work if you are coming through too early, but on your way to Athens from the airport, the Branded Barrel on Pleasant Hill Road is my liquor store. Outstanding selection of craft beers and brown liquor.

    Dinner with a client in LA last night. We ordered EHT Rye, Stagg Jr, EC 18yr, Hillrock Cask Strength Rye and a few others that I didn’t try. Good times

    Can you imagine paying $20 for one pour of WSR?

    A local steakhouse tried to sell me on a pour of blanton’s for $50. I asked him why I would do that if I could get a bottle for $60. I think WSR is 29.99?

    That was a good $15 tab.

    Willet Rye or EHT small batch? Obviously neither is outstanding but it’s a free bottle and I can pick between the 2

    EHT small batch for me, I’m not too big on the Willet 4yr whereas EHT is an easy drinker.

    What year Rye? If it is 3-4 I say EHT. I have some 7-8 year Willet Ryes that are amazing.

    Took the Rye Curios bottle camping last weekend. Good news - Tastes excellent. Bad News - I'm already halfway done.

    2 new starlight store picks are in but again both are outrageously expensive. One is white port barrel finished the other is VDN barrell finished rye. Both are 4 years. Both are $94. Gonna pass on them again.

    $94 is chunky, but I paid $80 for my maple finish and absolutely love it. The Benash store pick (unfinished) is one of my favorite bottle of the last year.

    It was fantastic. That store doesn't miss much on their picks, and it's ECBP, so tough to fuck up.

    I’m sorry to break the tradition of #finishedfriday but I needed a full proof Friday pour instead. Also, fly traps are super cool. Get some and give them distilled water or let them get rainwater.
