One Bourbon, One Scotch and One Beer



One Bourbon, One Scotch and One Beer with Whiskey Dave at Forsyth

Whiskey Dave here. I'll be opioning every two weeks on some of my current fave distilled & brewed grains. Ain't nothin' to it but to do it so here goes:


ONE BOURBON
J.W. Kelly Straight Bourbon Single Barrel Double Oaked 
54.5 % abv
5 to 8 year vatted straight bourbons , finished 1 year in a heavily toasted barrel
Only $44.99!!!
I'm a recent convert to double-barreled bourbon & rye.. Not just the wine-finished styles, but the expressions with heavily toasted or charred barrel finishes like Old Forester 1910, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked, Makers Mark RC6 and others. The J.W. Kelly joins the ranks as a tasty example of the style. Lots of vanilla...ok, gobs of vanilla leaning on the Madagascar bean flavor profile, nutmeg, cinnamon, and espresso. The finish? long with barrel spice, mint, and a touch of sweet caramel. James Lipton sez it's ...





ONE SCOTCH
Oban Single Malt Scotch "Little Bay" 43% abv
No age statement, Western Highlands
Only $55.99!!!
It's back! Oban Little Bay, my fave expression in the range, has returned to the fold. Let me refresh your collective memories....
This non-age stated release takes “mature small batch Oban single malt and gives it time in small oak casks” much like the Laphroaig Quarter Cask and the Duncan Taylor Octave barrel expressions The Little Bay is rich and woody with pitted fruits, salt air, and. spicy caramel. Don't miss out...it's been out of the S. Louis market for a few years. Who knows how long it's gonna be around...


ONE (or more) BEER
I tend to get stuck in a rut with beer. For the last few months, it's been nothing but hazy IPA (boy howdy, there are a lot of good ones but I digress). In warmer weather, one sometimes fancy something like these two beers below...
Founders Green Zebra Watermelon Gose...$8.99 / 6pk cans 
ABV: 4.6%
Watermelon and sea salt in a gose? Hell to the yes! Fresh, tangy, slightly sour with a touch of sweetness. A perfect summer quaffer...sour/sweet/salty. Throw it down and get down!


Rogue Combat Wombat Sour Northeast-style IPA with Blood Orange & Grapefruit...$13.99 4-pack 
 7.2% ABV
Ok, I changed my mind on the hazy IPA...this is damn good. I love blood orange and grapefruit so I dug this to the fullest extent of my abilities. The sour ale gives it a tangy, fresh finish and you feel like you can split another can with friends, relatives, and random people walking past your house

OLASAGASTI Fresh Anchovies Donostiarra Style




OLASAGASTI Fresh Anchovies Donostiarra Style....$8.99 / 6.7oz tin
Olasagasti anchovies are wonderful on a Caesar salad, on flat bread with tomatoes and olive oil, or served simply with bread, wine, and cheese as part of a tapas course. You can also use these for a lovely puttanesca pasta sauce.
Olasagasti, located in the Basque region of Spain, has been in business since 1929 and produce their products using traditional Spanish methods. Unlike the vinegar-marinated white “boquerone” style of anchovies, these anchovies are fried in olive oil “a la Donostiarra” with garlic and cayenne pepper.

One unique aspect of these anchovies is that the tins are not packed tightly to the brim with fish. This is a trademark of Olasagasti, who feel that using a larger tin gives the anchovies space to move and become covered in the marinade of olive oil, garlic, cayenne, wine vinegar and salt. The leftover oil is a flavorful bonus you can use for sauteing vegetables or shellfish.
