Today was a great day, a couple days ago I got a message from @marvelatwhisky saying “your bottle should be there on Wednesday” and I thought, “what the hell is he talking about”. Then I remembered that back in March, I won a bottle of Glendalough 7 year in one of his drawings. I was very excited to get it, so tonight I get home and there’s 2 boxes on the table, I opened the bigger one and there was my whiskey, I had no idea what the other box was and when I opened it lo and behold there was a @dadsdrinkingbourbon glen cairn in it. So it only made sense to put my new whiskey in my DDB glass. As far as a review goes, I don’t need to review the DDB glencairn we all know how cool they are. The Glendalough is 92 proof, aged 7 years in American Oak bourbon barrels and finished in Black Pitts porter barrels. I get apricot and fruits on the nose, the taste is light with cocoa and fruits, the finish is lingering and spicy. All and all a really good pour. A big thanks to @marvelatwhisky  and @dadsdrinkingbourbon for making this a great day. #mainenights #porchdrinking #summernights

Tonight I did a blind side by side with a regular OWA and a @dbmaugusta OWA store pick. Looking at these side by side, the color was the same but that’s where the similarities ended. Now I love OWA in any form but the store pick from Damon’s was fantastic. It was obvious from the first taste, it was more complex and flavorful with (as @bourbon.maine said earlier) a nice lingering heat at the finish. Kudos to the folks at Damon’s, this is a great pour. Glad I bought 2, they didn’t last long in store. #mainenights #backyarddrinking #porchdrinking #owa #blindtasting #mainelybourbonapproved

I couldn’t have said it better myself Mr Clemens. Sitting in the back yard by the fire tonight, enjoying a beautiful night, a glass of OWA 107 and a Hiram & Solomon cigar.  #backyarddrinking  #mainenights #owa #hiramsolomoncigars

I really hate to see this go,12 Year old Ezra B. The nose is butterscotch and candy, the taste is sweet and oaky with a great viscous mouthfeel, it just coats your tongue. The finish is lingering with a nice hug, warms all the way down. If anyone has one of these they’d like to part with or can pick one up dm me please, I’d be very interested. #butterscotch #mainenights #porchdrinking #ezrab #mondayagain

Trying Sagamore Spirits Rye tonight. This is an 83 proof rye from Maryland. I get an obvious rye nose, along with  raisins,orange and candy. It has a young taste but sweet, a mild rye burn and not much else. The finish to me is quick and dry. At 83 proof this is lower than I usually drink, maybe that’s why I feel like this is lacking something. I think it would be a good rye for someone who’s just getting into ryes or in an old fashioned, but I’m not a fan of it neat. Anyone else tried this? Thoughts? #porchdrinking #mainenights #rye #sagamorespirit #istandwithtrooper

Tonight I’m drinking EC 18 and smoking a Hiram & Solomon Master Mason cigar. The nose on this pour I get green apple,custard or flan and bubble gum. The taste is dry, oaky but not overpowering, and slight cinnamon. The finish is really lighter than I thought it would be with a slight heat lingering. I like this pour but I’m not sure I like it better than the EC barrel proof. This Hiram &Solomon cigar is quickly becoming my go to favorite, it’s a Maduro wrapper nice and dark, the flavor is full but not to strong it holds up well to a 90 proof bourbon and also pairs well with a barrel strength. If you haven’t tried one you’re missing out. #ec18 #elijahcraig18 #elijahcraig #hiramandsolomoncigars #mastermasoncigar #mainenights #porchdrinking

Thanks to @bourbon_aficionado for the scotch samples. While I really like smokey flavor in my bbq, not sure how I’ll feel about it in my whiskey, I’ll let you know. #ardberg10 #kilchomanbarrelpick #scotch #smokey #smokemyribsnotmywhiskey
Tonight I’m enjoying a glass of @chattwhiskey 1816 cask strength and a @hiramandsolomoncigars master mason cigar. I passed on this bourbon until it was recommended by @dadsdrinkingbourbon really glad I went back and picked it up. I haven’t seen it here since. The Master Mason cigar is one of my go to now, great full flavor and a nice even burn. #porchdrinking #mainenights #hiramandsolomoncigars #chattanoogawhiskey #dadsdrinkingbourbon #lastdayofvacation
Tonight’s #manpour is EC Barrel proof batch C917 131 proof. I love this barrel proof, liquid fire, oh so good. #beachdrinking #manpour #oob #barrelproof #mainenights #vacation #liquidfire
Vacation drinking redux, up next is Greenwarden, I’ll admit I was pretty skeptical about this one, but I have to eat(drink) my words. This is an ale brewed by #bandedbrewing using Maine spruce tips that comes off really crisp and refreshing on a hot Maine day. The spruce comes through quite nicely at the end, making this, as they say on the can “an ale of mythic proportions” #oob #beachdrinking #maine #vacation #sprucetips #greenwarden #mythic

Vacation drinking, first this evening is Cletus by oxbow brewing co. This is a dark farmhouse style fermented in freshly emptied bourbon barrels, It doesn’t say which bourbon. This has everything you’d expect from a farmhouse, slightly sour, crisp for those of you who like this style, you’d really enjoy this beer.#oob #beachdrinking #myvacation #maine

Vacation,night 2. Tonight’s Fathers Day #manpour is sponsored by OWA 107. This is a great pour, better than the Weller 12 in my opinion, but only if you can get it at retail or a little over. Some of the prices for this lately have been absurd. Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there, I hope you enjoyed yours as much as I enjoyed mine. #beachdrinking #owa107 #fathersday #oob #fathersdaybourbon #mainenights #manpour

Vacation in OOB Maine, the pier in the background has been there since 1898. OWA 107 in my bottle. Happy dads day to all. #beachdrinking #oob #owa107 #dadsdrinkingbourbon
1st night of vacation in Old Orchard Beach. Tonight’s #manpour brought to you courtesy of Old Forester 1920. This is my mid range go to, always good, always available. I don’t have an Old Forester glass(hint,hint) but this Woodfords Glass will do the trick. This pairs nicely with an Aging Room Quattro cigar, life is good here on the beach. #beachdrinking #oldforester1920 #mainenights #woodfordsglass #manpour #agingroomcigars #oldforester
