Lot 40 18 Cask Strength

Thanks to blaw84  for the sample. Thank you @primetimedinner on Twitter for the image, if you’d prefer I don’t use it, please message me. Canada: That place you used to think was Northern US Shangri-la, and then we ended up with Trump if he was racist Millhouse. Guess that’s what happens when you genocide a whole […]

Two Stacks Dram in a Can

Thanks to my wife for buying me a can… I think. It’s whiskey in a can, I can’t wax philosophical about it. I started writing and then looked back at the empty can and… well, it’s whiskey in a can! Okay, I got that out of my system, let’s move on. Two Stacks is not, […]

It also evokes a rough group of people who seem like they’d be buds with you, assuming you’re white. So not too different […]

An Ample Amount of Amruts

I’ve been writing a bit lately about moving on from old distilleries. Which is tough. No one wants to stop buying a specific distillery’s offerings due to price increases, changes in how it’s being made, or even situations where it becomes so popular that you have to camp out to purchase it. Which usually means […]
