    If you like KBS try and find some Epic Big Bad Baptist. It’s cheaper and in my opinion just as good.

    Be careful with their Baptista variant this year if you find any. They had a small infected batch make it out by mistake.

    I do like KBS a lot but I’m no loyalist/snob for certain breweries. I love trying new brews so I’ll keep an eye out for this one. I don’t believe KBS is any kind of holy grail but I love a good, pitch black barrel aged stout.

    Here's where I'm at tonight.
    100 proof is more than adequate for my needs.
    Super smooth
    Happy Monday ;)

    Now you guys are talking my language. And thanks for the tips on Burbons. I've been thinking of trying a few and the perspectives help. I fully agree with higher proof equaling better flavor and here's why...

    Current rotation:
    Ardbeg 10, Lagavulin 2016 D.E., Glenlivet 16yr French Oak.

    In my near future if my buddy with the military ID comes through:
    Ardbeg Uigeadail, Balvenie Double Wood, and Highland Park 12

    Gotta say, Ardbeg 10 is my go-to scotch, I can't stop buying this stuff and the 2017 bottlings have been excellent. Have bought a couple Highland Park bottles. Laphroaig is okay, I prefer the Ardbeg more, I think it has more hidden flavors once you get accustomed to the Peat and Smoke plus I prefer the mouth feel, but, that wouldn't stop me from buying more Laphroaig if the price is right. Started out with blends years ago, moved up to Singles a little over a year ago and haven't looked back.

    As for beers. Two Roads Road 2 Ruin DIPA is my favorite. Lagunitas when I'm looking for a 12pk or something to bring to a party. Dogfish 90min is good too but I find it can vary in quality sometimes. Ommegang Abby Dubble is fabulous and the New Belgium mixer pack that was out in December was awesome with the dubble, tripel, and sour. I've been know to hit up Sierra Nevada as well and Yuengling black & tan when I'm a little tight in the wallet.

    I don't go out of my way to buy Stouts, but if they are in a mix pack I will chose them over the lighter stuff once I polish of the IPA's, and I do like Keegan Ale's stout offerings.

    If you like the motor oil then I highly recommend oskar blues ten fidy. The barrel aged versions are tougher to find but just regular ten fidy is a classic.

    Also recommend
    Cigar city marshal Zhukov
    Deschutes abyss
    Sierra Nevada narwhal (super underrated)
    Foothills BA peoples Porter or stout. They use buffalo trace barrels and occasionally pappy gets sent to them as a gift.
    Evil twin even more Jesus
    Prairie bomb
    Goose island bourbon county (AB InBev hasn’t messed with it yet)
    Firestone Walker parabola

    On the bourbon side. Big buffalo trace fan and old forester birthday bourbon when I can find it.

    I’ve had the ten fiddy and the barrel aged Oskar blues, as well as the bourbon county varieties, parabola and prairie’s bomb/Xmas bomb, etc. I’ll keep an eye out for the others.

    Honestly I just drink copious amounts of Jack Daniels. Normally in one sitting to solve issues.

    First time I ever tasted Ardbeg 10 might be the single most eye opening and memorable drinking experience I've had in maybe forever. Looking forward opening my Uigeadail and Corryvreckan.

    I’ve really moved on a bit from the scotches since I dipped into the higher proof bourbons but I have to agree with you on the peat and smoke and growing accustomed to it. Once you acclimate there’s just more flavor and complexity to single malts. I personally find it’s the same with higher proof bourbon. Much more of the wood comes through since it isn’t distilled down with water. But just my personal preference.

    I don’t care what distinction they want to make. Jack is a variation of bourbon, so feel at home in all this talk!

    You know what? Despite how much I love bourbon, I HATE scotch.

    Cheap bourbon>Cheap Scotch

    Mid range Bourbon=Mid range Scotch

    Expensive Scotch>Expensive Bourbon

    I put mid priced things like Maker's Mark and Johnnie Black pretty evenly, although very different. Cheap scotch tastes like rust and has nothing on a simple bottle of Evan Williams. But I had a few drinks of Macallans 18 on a trip once and have never had anything quite like it since. So it may be that you're just having shit scotch like passport and smuggler.

    It might be hipster beer up there. Where I am, people have been drinking it forever. It’s like the opposite of hipster here.

    I was drinking scotch for the first time in a while the other night. It was Glenfiddich 12. Hated it.

    I've always been partial to Scotch. Dewars is good enough for me.

    Glenfiddich is like the Sam Adams of single malts. Popular because it's readily availabe and they pour tons of money into marketing. I'd put them at the bottom of the high end single malt range with glenmorangie. Slightly better than middle level stuff. A company more concerned with quantity than quality.

    More than likely I’d grow to like it if I drank it a lot. Pretty much what happened to me with bourbon. This was way before the bourbon craze started.

    But given that I can just drink bourbon, I don’t think the scotch thing will happen.

    I don’t know if I agree. I inherited a bottle of Johnny Walker blue King George when my grandpa passed but I prefer a solid $70 bottle of bourbon to the JW Blue, Mac 18, Balvenie 16, Glen 16 and all of the other high end scotch I’ve had. Scotch has some great depth of flavor, and I appreciate scotch but I personally prefer good bourbon over exquisite scotch.

    JW Blue just doesn't taste very good to me at all. In fact I would rather drink Buffalo Trace to any batch in the JW line. They're really not that good tasting too me, my opinion.

    I will say that the Dalmore King Alexander III I mentioned earlier is amazing and would stand up to the Pepsi challenge against pretty much anything I have tried, it's fantastic.
