The Pub / Re: Bell's files lawsuit against Innovation - AKA suck it Bell's

It appears there may be an appeals period. Let's see if Bell's decides to abide by the decision or drag this out even longer.

The decision was made on 12/20 there can be no likelyhood of confusion. So suck it Bell's!

Too bad Bell's decided to waste the time and money of a small brewery to prove nothing. You would think Larry and the gang would think before they act...

Finishing up a fifth of Kirkland Signature 27 Year Blended Scotch. I think it was about $55 and to me it was a bit hot and the flavors are muted to the point I find it long in the tooth. I don't think at half the price I would love it, so I'm going to suggest you pass on it.

Wild Turkey Rye is about as boring as you can get. Mixes well, but I won't buy it again.

I am an advocate of the CharGriller Akorn. For $300 or less it should last for years if kept covered. Mine is about 6 years old now and I have not had any rust.

Finishing the bottle on The Macallan Double Cask 12 Year tonight. I really enjoyed this one. I think it was $63 and had a nice complexity and flavor. If it were a tad less expensive it would have been even better because I think at $30 I enjoy Monkey Shoulder twice as much. ;)

I saw a few places online it is distilled at Barton 1792 which is Buffalo Trace. Now I want it.

Finished off a bottle of Stagg Jr. this past weekend. While delicious the alcohol is just a bit off putting to me. Of course if I run into another bottle I will buy it. ;)

Looks like we are heading back to Ireland in August 2018. Snagged a Groupon deal through Great Value Vacations which was too good to pass up. After a couple of nights in Kilkenny, planning to head to Belfast and N. Ireland if anyone has any don't miss places pass them along.

In case anyone is interested (should be viable for another week):

This one is on sale for the next hour at $50. I might check into it as a backup or for a second temp.

While I like the idea of making something work, it is sure easy to pull out the Inova and to let it do all the work. It has both a heating element and a circulator to keep the water moving and a steady temp. I use mine about once per week.

I made some several years ago after seeing it on America's Test Kitchen and it was quite tasty. Of course I haven't made one since so IIRC we liked it, but we didn't love it.

Opened Wild Turkey Rye last night. Not feeling it yet, a bit medicinal. Let's see if it grows on me.
