The bar with a brand new bottle of Blantons 93 proof Single Barrel Kentucky Bourbon. From Barrel 3, Rack 29, Warehouse H. Gift from my best friend. :D Haven't cracked it yet, and don't intend to until there's a really special occasion.

Suddenly I realize I live on the wrong side of the country.

You might be able to find it at the SeaTac Duty Free store. Only one of their 4 offerings is available at regular likker stores.

Here's the Blantons website https://www.blantonsbourbon.com/#

Hey Gene,

You're lucky that bourbon is your poison. I had to fly to Scotland, then drive four hours into the highlands to find mine. I probably won't ever taste it again, after I finish the bottle I bought two years ago. ;-)

Cheers,
Tom

Hey Dennis,

That would be Dalwhine 25 year old. The Dalwhine distillery is a very small, two still operation, at the highest elevation of any distillery in
Scotland. It's still run by descendants of the founders, and they still use paper, a pencil and a stopwatch. There is no computer automation for anything but the cash register at the tasting room. :wink:

Image

Because of the elevation, and the remote location, they maintain sleeping quarters for employees who get stuck there a couple times a year, during snow storms.

Nice place, nice folks, great whiskey, and worth the trip.

Cheers,
Tom

I'm not quite that dedicated to finding the finest spirits on the planet, nor am I rich enough. Glad you were able to tho. :D

Hey Gene,

The whiskey was a bonus. I am also lucky enough to have a god-daughter, with a taste for single malts, who was studying veterinary medicine in Scotland at the time. Life is good.

Cheers,
Tom
