There is something about having a whisky and falling a sleep afterwards...

Dan, I have a bottle of Craigellachie 13 at home, and I agree with you; I get some “BBQ sauce” notes as well.

It amazes me how subtle and "reserved" it is.  I kept telling Lori that it smelled like something we had had for dinner lately... I searched for a while, finally opened and sniffed a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's... held both to Lori's nose and she said "that's it".  And it adds so much.  Total surprise to me.  An interesting and pleasant take on peat smoke...

I know this seems kind of a weird and pointless factor for evaluating a whisky since it has no bearing on the quality of the spirit, but I also really like the “retro” look of the Craig 13 packaging. The label design has an “early 1900’s” style, and it looks like it was printed using lithography. Very cool!

The lithography look is what drew me to it in the first place.  Had it not been for the unusual packaging, it would have been lost in a SEA of bourbon and scotch.

Irish Whiskey... I've tried dozens over the years.  Found a few I actually liked... some I really hated.  Today, in an out of the way liquor store in Tennessee I found Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey.  Has an odd, but intriguing bottle... with a laughing skeleton on it... so I thought, "why not... what have I got to lose???"

The first sniff is floral, but i could not identify it.
With just a dash of H20 to open it up, initial taste had leather, some coffee and a wee hint of honey.  As it progresses to the back of the tongue, there is just a slight, mellow peat flavor... not overbearing or dramatic at all... just the most wonderful gentle smokey/peaty hint.  It is delightful.  Then, there is a creaminess, soft and slightly sweet that finishes the tastes.  Nothing biting, nothing that "assaults" the senses.  A most excellent whiskey that I am thankful to have found.  Oh yeah... and at the very end of a sip, just before being "commanded" to take another... there is a hint of licorice(which I love, by the way).  
I think the laughing skeleton is a hint that you may like it so much, it will kill you...
Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey is a true treat.  Strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a wee dram of excellent whisk(e)y now and then.  This one is definitely going in my bar...

I know I've discussed it before and this is a whisk(e)y site... I can't help myself.  I LOVE Dragon's Milk.  From New Holland Brewing, Dragon's Milk is 17th Century terminology for Stout reserved for Royalty.  It is truly a royal brew.  Aged in oak bourbon barrels for at least 120 days, it is the ambrosia of stout beers.  If I were told I had to give up everything else... I would fight to the death for Dragon's Milk.  
It is more ale than beer and it IS stout, sweet and sour... more sweet than sour, slight bourbon hints, STRONG stout. 
If you love brown beer... beer that is truly BEER... give it a try.  

It runs about $4.00/bottle.  Fairly expensive for a beer you buy in a store.
However, I was sitting in a bar in Houston, Texas when the FIRST price hike to $1.00/glass of draft beer went into effect... EVERYBODY was complaining.  I was sitting next to a regular at the bar and he was listening to everybody "b*tch" about the price.  He stood up and above the outroar said, "Hey, what are you complaining about... (long pause) I don't see how they can make anything so damned good so damned CHEAP..."  Everybody shut up and went back to drinking beer... which is what they were there for.
I have to agree on Dragon's Milk... I'd pay a lot more for it.

Wathan's Kentucky Bourbon... I was unfamiliar with it, thought I'd give it a try.  What an outstanding whiskey.  Made from family recipes initiated in the 1700's, it is one of the best unknown (to me) bourbons I have ever tasted.  Flavors of honeysuckle, vanilla, caramel, fine port, honey, light oak and spice (cinnamon), it is a real treat. Has a bit of a "kick" at 94 proof, but it is overwhelmed by the port/caramel flavors.   There is no age statement on the bottle... I can't guess the age.  For me, it is "enough", but maybe could be aged a bit longer for full mellowing.  I like the stuff, a lot.   A good addition to my bar stock.

I'm hoping you've already bought up all available stock before the great stampede starts....
