What I’m Drinking This Week – February 5, 2017

A short summary of some of the drinks I’ve been enjoying this week. 

Whisky:
This week I opened up a bottle of Macallan Edition No. 2, a limited edition version of Macallan that was aged in a combination of European and American oak, mostly (if not exclusively) coming from ex-Sherry casks. It’s quite good. I have previously had Edition No. 1, and I would say that this second version is a bit better than the first. I’ll be posting a review sometime soon.

In addition to the Macallan, I’ve been enjoying bottles of Balvenie 12 Year Single Barrel, Bunnahabhain 12, and Glendronach 12.

Beer:
Cigar City has finally come to Nashville, and I’ve been enjoying their “Tampa-style” lager. It’s nice and light, easy-drinking, and yet still flavorful. It’s simply a good old-fashioned beer, an idea that much of the craft beer scene has seemingly forgotten.

I also went through bottles of Black Abbey’s Solera Rose (Batch B45-RD-BT—not the best bottle of Solera Rose I’ve had), Flat Earth Theory from Urban Family (very nice), and Mantra’s Tacenda, a grape sour (not bad, but would be so much better if it were barrel-aged). As I write this, I’m enjoying a bottle of Old Rasputin from North Coast. It’s wonderful.
