Forteleza reposada - one cube - sooooo nice!

finally available in FL

Fortaleza Anejo is my favorite tequila.  Though I did stumble upon a new one called Don Abraham extra anejo.  Pretty dang good.  A bit tougher to find though than the Fortaleza though...at least the extra anejo was.  

Tasted some Old Forester Bourbons at the club:

1870 Original Batch
1897 Bottled in Bond
1910 Old Fine Whiskey
1920 Prohibition Style
The President's Choice

The President's Choice is a really nice sipper, and the 1910 was excellent in an Old Fashioned.  This was an interesting stylistic lineup - I'd never had Old Forester before. 

Glad to see some posts on this thread after a 2 month pause.  Some things I've bought and tried recently that were new and interesting.

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof Batch B518 (66.7%)

Knob Creek Cask Strength Rye (59.8%)

Weller Special Reserve

Oban Little Bay ($26 at Costco!)

Scored the 2018 releases of High West Midwinter's Night Dram and Thomas H Handy Rye that I am looking forward to.

Thanks. Not sure what tonight's toasting will be with. Funeral was today. Been a long day

My condolences. Losing a parent is never easy at any age.

El Dorado 12 while listening to classic Christmas songs performed on steel drum on the patio with temps in the low 70's.  Merry Christmas Mon!

Lots of Appleton and Red Stripe while listening to reggae Christmas songs on the beach in Jamaica. Christmas in the Caribbean, we’ve got everything but snow.

It'd been a while, but I got back to drinking some Eagle Rare 10yr, both neat and in an old fashioned.  Easily my go to bourbon for less than 40$.  That and Old Bardstown Estate.  

Where do you get Eagle Rare?  Hard to get out West.

Eagle Rare is pretty readily available in SD.  My most recent bottle was purchased at Costco. It's also available at Vons and BevMo here.  And to clarify, it's their basic bottling, not their fancy 17 year old which I've never encountered.
