Tasting XIV

After the last two tasting, I'd exhausted my supply of exciting whiskey. So I phoned it in. John? I guess he can blame Audra for sleep deprivation.

Tasting XIII

Lucky 13! I wasn't going to be able to top my entries from last tasting, but I had some stuff I thought John would find interesting (and one I thought would win to hedge my bets). Unknowingly, John brought all bourbon, too.

Tasting XII

So, I've been taking the easy road the last few tastings: playing to win. I felt John was a little uninspired by my choices, so with a little luck from the bourbon gods, I decided to bring all things John would find "interesting." John decided to bring all rye.

Tasting XI

I didn't think we'd have a tasting so soon after John's baby. I had already decided to not buy anymore bourbon. But John seemed disappointed when I misused my vocabulary and said: "I've got crap I could bring." "Crap" doesn't necessarily imply bad in my vocabulary. But I felt bad, so I bought a few bottles. Plus, I don't like to lose. Oh, John would like to say he was actually 6 minutes early to this tasting!

Tasting X

The big "X". This will probably be our last tasting for awhile: John's baby is due in a month. He thinks he will be able to get away. But I am pretty doubtful.

Tasting IX

Since we don't know what each other is bringing, it's always interesting to see what is revealed at the end. In this case, we tacked heavily back to bourbon...

Tasting VIII

I was actually sick for this tasting. I didn't tell anyone, though. But that's why the posting is so late. We had had a brick oven potluck the day before, and I probably over did it.

Bourbon (and Rye) Tasting VII

Finally, we're outdoors again! Yeah, summer! I now fully embrace high-proof ryes for tastings because we have a tendancy to pick them. Although, personally, I'm still not convinced I like rye.

Bourbon (and Rye) Tasting VI

After last time, I was determined not to get shut out of the final round. So I pulled a John and snuck some rye in. I also picked a high-proof bourbon (knowing John's a sucker for the heat).

Bourbon Tasting V

We finally managed to only bring four bourbons each. This was a good thing because we could enjoy a few drinks of the good stuff at the end. Which, unfortunately for me, all happened to be from John.
