I found it for the first time in Katonah NY..... I’m hooked

Natch, I blend it with another rum... no honey needed (as in RD)

I bet the other flavors are good.. Mango, coffee....

I was in the store of my favorite alcohol supplier when I happened upon some Elijah Craig Small Batch 12 years old. There were only three bottles on the shelf. I'm like 😱. Picked a bottle and went to the caja to pay. Fully expecting to get straight robbed. I was pleased. The store clearly did not know what they had. But since I had never tasted it before I did not buy the other two bottle. Big mistake. Returned the next day and they were gone. I have not seen anymore.😢

Thank you, I have received that suggestion before.

And when I asked where he sourced Islay single malts in 🇩🇴 he replied:

So, now I ask: Where do you source Islay single malts in 🇩🇴❓
Suggest you try El Catador in Santo Domingo....they have a limited range of single malts ajnd you can purchase online and they deliver for a small fee

Thank you for that excellent information.
And to add to that, Licormart has a extensive range of single malts including those from the Islay region.
Ron Depot has a more limited range but much better prices than Licormart.

Well it is Sunday. And that always means that when possible I start with drink with orange juice in the mix.

Screwdriver - 1 oz Vodka 4 oz Orange Juice one ice cube

A screwdriver with Vanilla Flavored Vodka is my favorite start the morning drink on Sunday. Today I am mixing up Absolut Vanilla. The old standby when I cannot find my favorite. It is always available. Price is going up in pesos but the strong exchange rate still makes it easy on my bank account. No Malcom Forbes here. I'm always 🏀on a budget. Does not mean I cannot pay cash for my consumer purchases.

Bloody Mary for me..... and an omelette..... Sunday noon

I use the Linda brand clamato type juice...
Horseradish. Worcestershire sauce, lime....hot sauce..,... anything you like

The Linda brand is the cheaper one... about 1/3 to 1/4 the Clamato price

Malcolm Forbes suggested it...... when he called from his old car

It is important to stay hydrated the hot and humid climate of the 🇩🇴
Water is the first thing I drink in the morning and continue to throughout the day.
I have tried adding a few drops of distilled water to my whiskey.
But I like my whiskey straight no chase.
Exactly how I like my conversations with other people.

Does anyone smoke something other than cigars ❓

I had help - Jack Daniels helped me......
Jack Daniels had a African American who was born into slavery who taught him everything he new about distilling whiskey.
Nathan "Nearest" Green
The descendants of Jack Daniels are billionaires
The descendants of Nathen "Nearest" Green are just getting their distillery started.
Straight no chase‼️

My friend's daughter married into the family.... the Daniels, not the slave

She's Cdn
You proud cause the daughter of your friend married into (former) slaveholder money ❓
Just wondering...:unsure:

And "not the slave" had a name:
Nathan "Nearest" Green
"Documentation shows that Green was owned by a firm known as Landis & Green, who likely hired him out to Call for a fee. Green was one of a few enslaved people who stayed on to work with Call after the Emancipation Proclamation. When introducing Green to an 8-year old Jack Daniel, Call is quoted as saying, "Uncle Nearest is the best whiskey maker that I know of." Call reportedly said to Green, "I want [Jack] to become the world's best whiskey distiller – if he wants to be. You help me teach him.""

Not being a man to hold grudges, but quick to educate those who deserve it and call fools out for their utter stupidity lets talk about Gentleman Jack.
It is much better than Old No. 7.
But not the best Jack Daniel's has to offer.
It is fine as a sipper.
But too expensive for me to mix.
When the bottle is done I will no longer be taking space up on my shelf.
