    Sourced from the same distillery as our own.

    Yeah. Magnus just got double gold for some sort of cognac-oaked bourbon at the same San Fran event we were involved with.

    I'm pretty sure this is the cognac-sherry barrel bourbon; there aren't too many bourbon offerings on their site, and this definitely isn't the 16 year they're selling for $889 (lol). They claim they sourced their barrels in KY--that might be a little deceiving if its really MGP juice. But, whatever...I'm still excite.

    If they are like us, they are looking at a bunch of different sources. We have been kicking around a blend that includes our rye, a millet whisky and an 8-year old TN bourbon.

    Our local Costco had Eagle Rare for a while. I asked MrsBabyShrimp to pick up a bottle but they were out and this is what she came home with. Haven't opened yet, interested to see what you think.

    They're just different for me. I really like Eagle Rare, but with Weller being a wheater it's just sweet as can be.

    Millet? Isn't that the stuff Koval makes, and pretty much nobody else on the planet? It's pretty terrible by itself, but I suppose a skilled blender might pull out something positive from it.

    Not sure I'd go so far as "much better", but it is better, and a good bottle.

    BT's "original wheated" claim is dubious, but it'll getcha drunk, and do so in tasty fashion.

    Some solid selections there. I wish I could find OWA somewhere around Greenville. Is that last year's M10? I haven't opened mine yet, wanted to know your thoughts on it.

    I can find pretty much anything in Connecticut, people up here don't appreciate good bourbon. All my local stores will generally have OWR in stock and its not hard to find OWA, I've also seen a ton of Mitchers 10 recently.

    The M10 is this year's and I'm a big fan. It's a mostly oak/caramel taste with a little spice that has a nice full flavor without being overpowering. I prefer to drink it neat, but a small ice cube will really bring out the caramel flavor.

    Good beer is my go to and the beer scene in Charleston is pretty good. It is great to supplement with a nice bourbon/whiskey selection for a change of pace.

    I like all the beers at Charleston fermetory. Cooper river is another on I really enjoy no matter what beer is put in front of me. Holy city just because it is close to my office and I catch a beer or two on the way home. Rusty bull is another that just opened and has quality beers.

    Chas Fermentory is perfectly located and just what Avondale/West Ash needed - just wasn't all too impressed with the beer selection. Might need to give it another run tho. I live on the Frothy Beard side of West Ash and can ride a bike over, so that's become the go-to.

    Tried the Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose and was delightfully surprised. Thought it would be too much but was a big fan. Looking forward to trying the Mexican Cake this year.

    As someone that really likes Goses, I do not care for the Westbrook ones at all.

    Is it on tap at Westbrook? That is pretty much the only beer I'll chase in a given year anymore. Grabbed my single allocated bottle from Bill's last week.

    Agreed. The Westbrook Gose made me gag... Fatty's has one that's actually deec tho.

    As much as I hate on Westbrook for having a sterile/corporate/non-brewery-looking setting in their brewery, nothing in Charleston tops the White Thai.

    Yeah, oak barrel tavern in Avondale is also a good spot to try various beers. I like Frothy beard too, visit there quite a bit. Just tried Fatty's Beer works last week and they only had four types of beer.

    They had bottles of the Mexican cake at oak barrel tavern and craftsman kitchen for sale last week... I like it a lot but I don't like searching for it when they release it.

    Just thought of Craft conundrum which is on your side of WA. They have a large selection of local/widespread beers. Go on a Wednesday night when 2nixons is doing a popup for Ramen.

    I'm not a huge fan of the regular gose but this one was better than I was expecting. In fairness, I went into trying it with the expectation of being disappointed so the bar was set pretty low.

    If you are in the Charleston area, just run by the brewery and they have it in bottles there. No idea how long it lasts but when I was there this past weekend I grabbed 2 bottles with no problem. Plus, they are only $15 there.

    That's what happens when it is good and a special release type deal.
