    Wow, I doubt I like it. 66 ratings on untappd so far 3.77/5. This is what the one friend of mine wrote.

    What I had to open tonight. From the good 'ol Champaign area. One of my favorite beers and breweries!

    Splitting my skull right now. Tastes like a scotch ale.

    Found this on the shelf yesterday! Other bourbons people will know this can be a pain in the ass to find. Not expensive at retail but damn is it elusive. Haven’t opened it yet.

    Picked this up recently. Ordered food and it wasn't ready when i went to pick it up, so I walked around the liquor store next door and found this.

    It is definitely solid

    What's the abv on that because if it's 5%, that's false advertising.

    8.5% is reasonable.

    But I'm sure a "Backwoods Bastard" tastes better. That's my favorite scotch ale. Because the barrel mellows the scotch character.

    CYPB and the new Single Barrel are the only ones I don’t have. The bottle of Full Proof that I have is a store pick so I guess technically that’s a single barrel but at full proof. Had planned on cracking that bottle with a friend, but stupid pandemic.

    And there’s a Weller Antique 107 hiding behind the full proof.

    Where did you get the Havana Club? I was able to bring back a bottle of 7 year and 15 year from a Cuba cruise before they were banned, but I'm running low. I read there was a shop near the Cozumel cruise port that I hope to checkout next time I'm down there.

    Cozumel. Got it at the duty free at the port that NCL docks at which is the more northerly one. Got the 7 year in Cozumel. The añejo came from Spain. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the info. I think Royal Caribbean and NCL dock at the same terminal, and Carnival/Princess uses the other terminal. I'll definitely check next time I'm there.

    Do you recall if Cozumel had other Havana Club aged statements and approx what's the going rate is for the 7 year?

    We spent the day at Mr Sanchos and we were running a tad behind so things were a little blurry. I don’t recall seeing any others beside Añejo and 7 year. Prices weren’t too crazy but again I don’t recall specifics. Couldn’t have been too much as we bought like 6 bottles of rum. I remember prices at the shop being about what I see in Houston, maybe slightly cheaper. I was really looking for allocated bourbons (Blantons and the like) but this will do. I find the 7yr to be an excellent sipper neat. Bourbon was almost nowhere to be found outside of the usual mass market names. Woodford was usually the best available.

    Had a blantons neat on Wednesday night. It’s likely a beer night tonight.

    A pacific ipa but yet it’s from New England which also has its own ipa style. It’s ok. Wouldn’t go out of my way for this. But it is def a west coast ipa with the hoppiness. When it comes to ipa I much prefer the New England style.

    Friend bring that down? We barely get any IPA from that far east, and definitely not Hazy/New England IPAs. Or did you mean you like old, old school IPAs from the east?

    3.55/5 from untappd btw. That's bad for a west coast ipa style.

    It’s actually part of a Christmas gift that’s a beer delivery each quarter. Amazon subscriptions I think it is.

    The few bistros I've had from them have been pretty good. I have a "Double Hop Jon" from them to try, but it has some mixed reviews. Bah.

    This gator will bite ya. Very smooth and balanced strawberry flavor. Drinks like a beer with half the ABV so it’ll sneak up on you if not careful.
