Son of a gun, Doc....If you just didn't make my whole summer!
We missed you, you know! :) Sort of that Boris and Natasha thing where they go sideways without direction from Fearless Leader.
But, thanks for coming aboard for a while. And you know all the words written above were from our hearts. You've touched us all. Know that.
I had to call my beer guru about the Monk 9%. She is a total expert on west coast beers, and while she knew the brewery, she didn't quite know that particular offering. A good thing to know, however. I'm now on a quest.
As to the Walker Black, I'm a scotch man, myself. Once in a while my tastes run to such classics. Typically, my go wee dram is Glenmorangie. A -fiddich will do in a pinch. A Laphroag when I am feeling more like something earthy. Sometimes I tone it down with lesser bottles. Have a Monkey Shoulders in stock right now. The last one I nursed just happened to be a Walker Red.
And weirdly, I was drinking a 14 Hands yesterday. Really. The best cheap wine on the planet.
However, I will gladly stock up on the Black, you just promise me that we get to sip one together sometime, somewhere. Here or there, Doc, I'm good with either.
And I don't know about real life, but I do know you've been a hell of a fine friend in this one.
