Print Story I am a veritable captain of industry

I purchased a steak and made it to my specifications. I AM A VERITABLE CAPTAIN OF INDUSTRY.

It was so rare! So fine! So red! It was somewhere between bleu and rare. I don't know whether I trust my grocer enough to eat anything bleu. Otherwise I'd make filet américain sometime. Otherwise I'd eat my steaks bleu. Otherwise... Well, let's just say this world is too grand to be dealing with so many counterfactual conditionals.

And now I am drinking Old Portrero (cut with a little water, of course).

I am so awesome, it's like being in love, except it's simply the state of being me! Well, maybe I'm in love with modern moonlight! I'm in love with Massachusetts! I'm in love with the radio on!

And how are you, Dear Reader?

Are you perchance planning a visit to Deutschlandia? This whiskey intrigues me and I wish to sample it. Rye whiskeys are hard to find (Jim Beam yellow label & Old Overholt) and I quite enjoy them. I'm surprised that they're not claiming single malt or even single-cask when they're bottling at cask strength. Perhaps they're mixing their own rye base with other stuff from various distillers.

Nevertheless I'm intrigued and no one here has it, not even the two buig on-line shops which even carry all the Edradour variants.

As far as steak, I've finally found a place that hangs carcasses for 3-4 weeks and will soon be experimenting with fridge-aging at home. It's touchy but do-able and I have a big fridge. Can't afford to run a meat locker much less fit one in this place.

It is single malt. by gzt (2.00 / 0) #4 Sat Jul 05, 2008 at 04:36:20 AM EST
I have the 18th century, by the way. It's hard to find outside of California, but, for some reason, when the grocery store around the corner was closing, they had a couple bottles. And they were 20% off. I got one and my roommate got one. They're a small distillery with small distribution.

I am fine thanks. Looking for a new job. I mostly lurk during downtime at work but am feeling salty today.  You are, and have been, on the watchlist. Keep posting.
