Finishing off a bottle of Redwood Empire Pipe Dream Bourbon Whiskey. I tried not to like this bottle since it originated in California, but dangit, it's tasty. It's 40 beans in NC, but I see in CA it can be had for less.
It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

Finished up a bottle of Pinhook Rye'd On last night. Too much spearmint for my tastes and a bit price at 42 beans per bottle.

When I think of Bourbon the first state that comes to mind is NOT CA. ;)

That's a nice gift! Oban is often overlooked but it's a nice midpoint between a sweeter Highland malt and the smoker island distilleries.

Agreed, upon first time tasting this I found it to have a very light and pleasant smokiness to it.

Redwood Empire Emerald Giant seemed tasty at first, but as the bottle nears the end it's apparent it has far too much spearmint for my tastes. I won't buy another bottle of it.

To be sure. Oban always has a place on my shelf. It is one of the Single Malts that I include in my collection of Scotch Whiskeys, currently numbering 10. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
