    Sat here on a Sunday evening, squeezing out the weekend's last drops*. I still have a few bottles left over from my Malt Whisky Society membership a few years back. This is a tasty one...

    Between that and their Celebrator, they pretty much rule my fall/winter beer lineup.

    But I digress... It's 75 degrees outside, I am grilling bacon wrapped steaks, and drinking a Spotted Cow (or three), which might be the ultimate lawn-mowing, suburb-grilling, easy-drinking, summer beer.

    I got this very special bottle today from a client. This is my new special occasion bottle. I bought it opened but I've had enough drams to pick it. If you love a 'dessert whisky' this is grail stuff. Totally unobtainable now days.


    A little history: The original group managed to fill two barrels. One barrel went to Hobart, one stayed at North Motton, south of Ulverstone at the site of the distillery. The malt spirit continued to age. In 1993 one of the team, Andrew Morrison, visited Scotland with a barrel sample (then 15 months old). He took it to independent bottlers, William Cadenheads, the marketing arm of Springbank Distillery, to get some perspective on the quality of the young whisky. Springbank was duly impressed and ordered seven barrels. Morrison, who must have been both chuffed and embarrassed, had to explain that they couldn't fulfill the request because the operation had already run out of money and their equipment had been dismantled. Cadenheads, who have always been ahead of the game in sourcing the world's finest spirits, were obviously looking to secure an ongoing supply, possibly even to market an Australian brand in Europe. They obliged by giving Morrision around 25K up front to re-commence production and fill the order. The ''first'' batch was run out in January 1994, and the new spirit continued to flow until November 1997. Once again, Small Concern produced and once again they ran out of money. It was understandable - they were in the words of co founder, David MacLennan, the "first cab off the rank" when it came to commercial whisky production in Tasmania. Investment had been difficult to harness with a 4-5 year (plus) return on a highly speculative venture. Not long after the Small Concern distillery had reached its zenith it was being dismantled, meanwhile a whisky enthusiast by the name of Bill Lark had established his own venture (1992) and was playing around with small quantities of whisky further south. The rest is history...

    Bundaberg ginger beer - Brewed over three days and aged in the bottle for no less than three weeks. I'm even building a dedicated ginger beer room in which to play my banjo and indulge my weakness.

    Just tried my first Armagnac and liked it. An enjoyable alternative to whisky and cognac. It has some similar qualities to a single malt but of course is different.

    I've had four "5 hour energy" drinks in the last hour. I now have enough energy for 20 hours. Math game strong.

    dang have a bottle of that on my shelf and nip at it from time to time.
    somehow most any armagnac (or calvados) tried in local haunts during trips to France moons ago, can't be replicated by bottles in amerika.

    speaking of lesser imports: Dolin Genepy in the glass right now.
    certainly prefer the genepi du Meunier instead

    should just return to the Chartreuse V.E.P. for complete late night mind erasure.

    I know K&L Wines likes to import different, unknown Armagnacs. Looks like there is much to explore
