    Finished my evening with a tall glass of seltzer spiked with Old Grand Dad BIB.

    Enjoying a taste from the Huevos Memorial Bourbon infinity bottle in our departed Huevos' home:

    Loads and loads of kettle/caramel corn with an accent of banana. The Old Forester in the blend is still pulling its weight, and that's a very good thing.

    Cheers!

    Earlier today me and the Midnight drove home from Houston. Somewhere along US 290 I said what the hell, let's let the cat loose in the car:

    I've tried this twice before to very poor results. Today he handled it much better.

    Where do you go when you start with Elijah Craig Barrel Proof? Let's go to Texas! No, wait ... I'm already here. :astonished:

    1. ECBP remains the king champion of bourbon for me ... paid $99 for the bottle I have now, felt dirty/weird leaving that store this summer knowing $99 is a secondary-market price and that business felt shady at any price, but frankly I plan on buying another bottle from them if the price is the same and I can't find it anywhere else.

    2. The Balcones wheater has that Balcones corn tortilla/masa flavor right up front, right in your face — it's their signature note that crosses styles (bourbon, malt, rye) and a love it/hate it note. Then there's cherry and caramel and some old oak staves and some pecan wood flavor and at 60.6% there's all the heft you need to hang with ECBP. And if you're patient, a pinch of tobacco leaf shows up in the after-aftertaste.

    Great looking kitty. My cat had similar issues in a car. I think he associated car trips with trips to the vet. So understandably, he wasn't a fan of adventures in the car.

    I'd imagine the average cat hates car rides. Midnight can tell he's basically still trapped in the car when you let him out of the cage, but I think if I can prop up a bed so he can see out the window while he lounges in it, he will settle down more quickly.

    Or I could give him a little bourbon, no? :grin::innocent:

    Tonight it will be Old Grand Dad BIB or Evan Williams BIB, or maybe both.

    I had a generous pour of Widow Jane 10 last night talking with my oldest friend in the world (we met in preschool). Some may have spilled into my coffee this morning.

    He does not, but I joke with Ollie's owner (my niece) that he sure looks like he'd fit in my car and enjoy the hour and a half drive back from Taylor to my place in Bryan. :grin:
