I finally landed my personal whale a couple of months ago (thanks rowingbrewer!). I find that many of my highly desired beers sit in the cellar way too long, sometimes going past their prime, as I wait for that "special occasion" to open them. I've sat on this one long enough waiting for that day, and decided that I would rather make tomorrow a special occasion with this beer than wait for the right day to open it. Sure, it's a random weekday, and the weather isn't really conducive to the style, and yadda yadda yadda, screw the excuses I'm gonna open it tomorrow and enjoy the hell out of it! So if you're looking for an excuse to open that personal whale that you've been eying in your cellar, feel free to join me in celebrating an impromptu whale day tomorrow, and be sure to share the results in this thread! Oh, and if anyone is curious, my personal whale is Bourbon County Rare. Sure there's harder to find stuff that commands a higher trade value, but this is THE beer I've wanted to try for ages and spent quite a while acquiring the requisite trade ammo for. I'm stoked!!!
