Whisky from ’18

Travel

Hello again,

After a nice walk through the mall this afternoon (it was still raining , so we couldn’t go for a walk outside), we reconvened at my Aunt and Uncle’s house yet again.  I started my evening by tasting a couple of different wines, but the Molly Dooker Shiraz was my favorite again tonight.

On the menu was my Grandpa’s very favorite meal: southern fried chicken with macaroni and cheese (and salad).  Ok, so my pictures are terrible, so go visit Kath’s post.

Dessert was one of the most amazing bread puddings I have ever had…with a homemade caramel bourbon sauce…

After dessert, we enjoyed an Armagnac that was distilled in 1945.

We toasted to Pop and then decided we needed another taste…



So, we enjoyed a whisky from 1918.  It was good, but it sure tasted antique. Regardless, drinking alcohol that was created before prohibition was a totally cool experience.

Such a wonderful evening filled with family!!

Tomorrow is kind of up in the air.  We might work out in the morning or we might try to organize one last family lunch.  After that, I’m off to KERF country for the night!  Be back tomorrow.

    Wow that is amazing that you got to try whiskey from 1918! It looks like you and your family are really celebrating your grandfathers life in a positive way.

    Makes me want to buy a bottle from 2010 for my daughter’s birth…not sure if we could keep it for 100 years though…

    Pretty amazing way to toast Pops!

    I am sure Pop enjoyed the toast and would have been pleased by all of the special touches that went in to celebrating his life.
