My grail watch!
JD meaning Jack Daniels Single Barrel? Those are two very different whiskies of worthy quality. A fantastic way to start!
Open both, pour both. I think tasting two drams in the same sitting is a...
Clear liquors are for rich women on diets. :001_smile
Right. And shipping would be an issue.
Gents, has there been any discussion of a whisky exchange program, like we have in Brown Leaf? I'm seeing an uptick in whisky posts, especially scotch, and as a whisky connoisseur, it's really got me...
Christopher Ward Trident Pro
Awesome, awesome. First time to see that for me.
C&D Billy Budd. I gave it a fair shot, but this blend is not for me. Gives me a headache every time I smoke it. I have to keep it to short smokes.

Tempting, but not in. How incredibly generous! Invicta and Vostok were my first mechanical watches, and I just gave them to a friend to get him started, and to rationalize my taking a small step up...
What an awesome article!!!
I'm having a serious issue with the Vollrath pans. The seasoning flakes off.
My method for seasoning is stovetop, not in the oven. But it's the same process I used on DeBuyer, and they give me no...
I love the stem--that's why I bought it. $10 at an antique store. It's a really big bowl. I got a little dizzy smoking C&D Billy Budd yesterday. :laugh:
Does a re-acquisition count? B&B craftsman alpster fixed these up for me. Look how shiney! The GBD was terrible gunked up.
Monthly "gentlemanly restraint" commitments instead of yearly? When did this happen?
Calphalon roasting pan, $50 in the Bed Bath and Beyond clearance bin. It sure is big, but better too big than too small, right?
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban and Laphraiog QC are no more.
:thumbup1: Fantastic dram.
Sweet! Love to see an old knife get a new life.
I might have to try it, but I'm not sure I prefer anything to Sazerac Rye in a sazerac or old fashioned!
Now that looks interesting. Natural color?
:thumbup1: Dang those look delicious. I've tried Penzance (unicorn poop) once, but it was too early in my pipesmoking life to appreciate it.
Ok, so it sounds like the Norton flattening stone is definitely out. The cheapest fix is to get SIC powder and find something really flat to apply it to. I'll have to do some research.
:001_huh: Can you spell those out? It's jargon with which I am not familiar.
I've tried Yellow Spot. No, I don't think it's stateside yet, buy I had an inside source :thumbup1:
And it's a fantastic whisky. I'm going to assume it's the malaga casks, since something called...
What the heck? I'm in need of a tool to flatten my knife-sharpening stone and coticule. I've seen the Norton flattening stone, and assumed that's all I'd need. But the reviews on amazon say that they...
wow wow wow!
Got this at an antique shop--the acrylic stem was too amazing to let go. My problem now is it needs a good cleaning. It's gunky. And, as some may know, I ruined the finish on my other pipe. So is...
It's a quality whisky, but too much sherry for my palate. I prefer the whisky spend most of its time in American oak.
Glendronach 10 is my only bottle so far.
Guys, I really appreciate this insight. MKII watches are exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for: less than $1k, elegant but not pretentious, with a name other than Citizen or Seiko :001_smile
That's the way to do it. No need to resort to a cart just for travel. What about your soap and brush?
Montenegro is my favorite--nothing, so far, comes close. I take it neat. It also works will with gin or jenever, martini style. Cynar is quite terrible by itself, in my opinion, but adds a great...
