    It's over 100degrees today so I'm in town doing laundry and buying a generator and a couple box fans.
    Oh and Ice. Lots and lots of ice.

    Take care folks. See you next time I'm out of clean socks

    What's that like, Berg? I've been thinking about trying it, but some days it just sounds off.

    Today as we were finishing up for the week, the Man of the house came out with a big box and set it down. He told our ground guy that it was a surprise for us for doing such a good job so far. It was a case of Buffalo Trace Bourbon. One bottle for each of us. That was a hell of a nice surprise! We think it was really his way of saying, "Thanks for putting up with my wifes crazy ass." Because she really is a nightmare to work for. He has been nothing but nice though.

    So tonight I am going to sit out on the back porch and try out this bourbon, (on the rocks with a splash of water) while I smoke something in the 2013 POY. Any suggestions? I am thinking Irish Oak might be very nice with it. Or perhaps a LNF or LBF

    Good afternoon. Stonehaven in a Peterson. Haven't had Stonehaven in awhile, and it's picked up some more depth as it sat waiting for me. This is a great tobacco for aging; I'm excited to have a pound of it jarred up. Should be really terrific in a few years.

    Spicy tobacco goes really well with buffalo trace. I love that bourbon. Don't water it down. It is very smooth neat.

    Don't do rocks and a splash. Give it a couple cubes and stir it a little. You'll love it.
    Edit to add: Not to sound like a bourbon snob, don't just use ice cubes from the ice maker either. Unless you have spring water in your well. I make ice with distilled water for whiskey.

    Ok, I'll try it that way, but I am not a whiskey connoisseur by any means. To me if someone asked me to describe the flavor of any whiskey, I would say it tastes like whiskey. I have heard that watering it down a bit helps the newb taste the subtle flavors better.
