Quick and Easy Maker’s Shake

As bourbons go, I seem to like Maker’s Mark pretty well. It’s one of the few American whiskies to call their bourbon a “whisky” instead of “whiskey”. So, on a day when I let myself indulge a bit, I thought a Maker’s shake would be tasty! I just took some vanilla ice cream, a bit ... Read More »

Avoid Whisky Snobbery

There are too many things in life about which people get snobby. Unfortunately, I like a lot of those things, too. I’m going to also admit that I’m something of an ex-snob.

Talisker 18 Review

I stopped at my favorite semi-local Scotch source, the Party Source in Newport, KY, this week. It’s about a 50 minute drive, but it’s really worth it.

The Macallan 18

I made a big mistake the first time I tried the Macallan 18. I’m not that big on sweet whiskies usually, and, to be honest, a bit put off by the snooty reputation of this one. I had a bartender in Chicago tell me, as a table of lawyers were ordering the Macallan 18, one ... Read More »

Simple Infrared Wings

If you’ve been reading what little I’ve been posting lately, you may know I’ve been really strict on what I’ve been eating, and I’m down about 70 pounds since the beginning of fall last year. I’m still working on it, and most of my eating revolves around lean meats from a good deli. However, once ... Read More »
