This is me standing awkwardly against a lamp post in the latest issue of the Tasting Panel magazine. My first non-adult glossy magazine appearance. Of course I didn’t actually say most of the things I’m quoted as saying (I would literally never talk like that) it’s still cool to see myself in print.
Picked up a few bottles from a fellow dusty hunting friend in NJ tonight. A bottle of the original Wild Turkey 101 rye (finally, and it’s awesome), and a bottle of Myers’s Gold Rum circa 1981, which doesn’t seem to be made anymore.
Nice estate sale find. I’m now officially a member of the Church of England Temperance Society, circa 1893. “I hereby promise, by God’s help, to Abstain from the use of Intoxicating Liquors except under Medical Orders.”
Damn fine dinner and drinks at @tavernroad with my brother and sister-in-law. The Rue Morgue is a cocktail that speaks to me: scotch, ruby port, Benedictine, creme de cacao. Incredible food, too. (at Tavern Road)
Breaking my self-imposed moratorium* on new booze purchases with a bottle of white port because I read an article about it today and I’ve long been curious to try it. Also Martignetti’s has 375 ml bottles of Famous Grouse on closeout for $6.99 each, a price too good to pass up (I bought 3). *My moratorium lasted all of 3 days. (at Martignetti Liquors)
