Mark’s Blog

Bryan has threatened to beat me severely if I did not start posting to this blog. So…. here we go. we are thinking of doing BBQ ribs by my friend Bob. some of you have had bob’s BBQ before so you know the quality. Ribs will come in around 20 a rack let me know if interested.

Bourbon — Rhetoric 23 just came in, this is the new Orphan Barrel and the fourth of the Rhetoric series. I have not had an opportunity to try it yet, stay tuned for a review.

Scotch — The New Glenmorangie wooded series will be in the next couple weeks. I am very much looking forward to this release. It has been dubbed Bacalta and is fished in a Malmsey Mederia which should give it a very sweet fruit finish.

Artie is rocking a blue mohawk this week (i am sure you needed to know that).

wed. first post

i have been coaxed, cajoled, and have finally been convinced that i should do a Pub blog.  i am not sure what this will turn into in the long run, but we shall all find out. I thought, at least for now, that 3 or 4 times a week i would do a whiskey post, either on new whiskey at the pub or talking about some old favorites. so for those of you that know me some things you will have heard before. I will also do some posting on whats on tap and my feelings on it (keep in mind that because i like, or dislike, something does not make it good or bad, its just my tastes). Also if you have any question or would like me to talk about any whiskey in particular, we will be adding a tab at the top of the home page for questions or comments.

i will be doing my first real post this evening. and yes you guessed it …. it will be on a scotch (i even know which one, but i’m not telling yet.
