    Keep going back until they are out. Send friends in to get them for you. I'll buy every one you want to sell me.

    That's what I'm planning on doing, might stop on my way to and from work tmw. I know if I keep buying them, I can either A-drink them myself or B-secondary market

    You should be happy I thought of you first. I was ready to buy them out until she said 2 bottle limit.

    There will be a hefty finder's fee in there, if you should sell them to me. $10/bottle. Not. Kidding.

    Well the limit went up to 3 bottles of KBS when i stopped to pick up some for bbdl, so I of course I got 3, unfortunately he said they're now sending out emails to get rid of it so probably none left tmw. They had 10 bottles left when I was there, I was ready to buy all 10.

    Blend it with the Breakfast Stout. Very tasty (I go about 50-50 on the mix).

    I'll be back at Founders Brewing in 2 weeks, so I can try that then.

    co-worker has been bitten by the homebrew bug hard. In about 3 months he went from "my brother who lives in Manhattan dumped this stuff on me" to "I'm growing 3 hop varietals on the side of my house, brewing all grain with my own mill... etc, etc, etc.". Which is nice, because I wasn't willing the risk of buying what would amount to a "treadmill" which would never get used.

    Went over to his place Friday night. I'm hoping to contribute to the habit. I may kick him an item or so every once in awhile to let him know I'm not in it just to mooch off of the beer.

    Brought home several bottles/varieties of St. Lucian rum.

    Brought 1 bottle of Chairman's Reserve - which is their standard amber rum mixer. Was $12 - it's $27 here. It's good enough in a rum and Coke and I couldn't beat that price. Just got 1 bottle for nostalgia.


    Also grabbed Chairman's Reserve - The Forgotten Casks, Chairman's Reserve -1931 (blue bottle) and Admiral Rodney X.O. 12yr.

    Look forward to trying these over the next week or so.



    While on the resort, I tried Eldorado 21, which is their (El Dorado's) top product, or at least the oldest.

    Was only decent. Too much burn for a $100 per bottle rum. Still prefer their 12.

    Found out my kid has a lacrosse tourney in Louisville in June - home of Angel's Envy.

    Their finished rye is back ordered across the country and nearly impossible to find. Hope to score a couple of bottles while there.

    Tried each of these neat last night during the Hawks game.

    Of the three, only the Chairman's Reserve -1931 was slightly disappointing. It's pretty good, but I have so many sippers that are really good to excellent that it's up against it. Was a little thin and the finish was slightly odd. Can buy this online, but seems doubtful that I'll restock it when done.

    The Admiral Rodney was quite nice with more depth of character and a smooth finish. Definitely the best of the bunch and unfortunate that I can't find anywhere to buy it here.

    I was surprised that the Chairman's Reserve - The Forgotten Casks was good as a sipper. Was thinking this would be a high end mixer, but it's a tweener that could go either way. I can actually get this one stateside, so it might become a regular.
