Lady Henessey was at our local grocer's/State store a few days ago!

Monk was awesome. I'm not so sure about the rest of his band.

Monk was always awesome. True genius in every way. But yeah, the band, or this incarnation of it, wasn't as on fire as other recordings I have floating around the house.

But it got us there for this evening.

Hey, Brooke! You did get some free samples didn't ya? Did ya get any for me?

No samples. The liquor liscencing in Ohio is squirrely.

In fact, you had to buy a bottle of H. in order to get your pic taken with Lady H.

Still, it was kind of cool.

Brooke -- We had a Crown Royal rep last summer. Hottest day of the summer rough day at the cube farm I wanted to walk into the liquor store, get my Wild Turkey and GET OUT.

But NOOOOOO There was the Crown Royal lady. Giving out free samples. And it was on ice. Not on the rocks but the bottle was packed in ice so the whiskey was cold but not watered down. Perfect (I keep my Wild Turkey in the fridge for that reason. Along with marachino cheries soaking in vodka - yum). Anyway she was very nice and let me have 2 shots.

They went down so smooth I had to buy 2 bottles. On sale of course.

I'm staring at an uncracked bottle of Bowmore Islay right now. How long it remains uncracked remains to be seen but, considering your suggestion, CS, smart money is on about 5 minutes. . .

Whiskey in the fridge?

I pour mine into a glass and drink it neat.

Brooke -- mine's neat too. Just cold. I like it unchilled as well, just prefer it cold.
