Hibiki is the name of the whiskey. Made by a distillery called Suntory (sp?). That shit's amazing!

My go to is either Glenlivet 18 or Ardbeg.

Do you mix that or drink it straight?

I had purchased a 4-pack of Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA at the Dogfish Brewery during a stop there in May of 2014. At the time, you couldn't even buy that stuff in 4-packs, just as individual bottles.

Two of the bottles I drank fresh and the other two I saved for special occasions.

The first ended up going New Year's Eve 2014 to celebrate getting my new job that enabled me to move to the Cape.

The second bottle ended up going January 16, 2017 to celebrate my girl and I buying our house.

Just went back to the brewery last Tuesday and buying four more I intend to do the same thing with: two going fresh, two being aged.

Neither my girl or I are whiskey/whisky drinkers but she's more into the pricey alcohol than me.

Her dad is the wine collector (retired skull-based physician) and so her palate is pretty well developed. I'm fine with a 100 dollar bottle but she on the other hand....

I'm more of a beer guy. I use to brew all grain beer for quite some time with a cooler, mash etc. but gave it up due to time.

I'm not educated on alcohol much. Tried this Roscato Rosso Dolce red wine at a steakhouse and we instantly fell in love with it. Looking to find it by my local liquor and wine store but it's sold out everywhere. Such a great taste.

Thanks for the endorsement.

I don't have a developed taste for Whiskey or Scotch, so I went for the cool looking bottle since it's gonna sit on display for i don't know how long.

Dogfish Head is freaking amazing. Love that shit. The 120' IPA ****s you up though, if you have more than 5 or 6.

'13 or '14 was the first time I tried the 120. If you get a chance, try St. Bernardus ABT. I fell in love with that when I was in Malibu. Had it at this place called Moonshadows.

It is, bro. You should try it. Try it straight or add a single big cube of ice. That's it.

Tried it for the first time at a friends place like 2-3 years ago. Have a bottle or two in my stash right now. You don't find them in India in probably 99% of the stores, so I just save them.

My backup go-to. Got a bottle for my 21st, only taken 2 shots.

Will definitely finish it if CP does the unthinkable and wins it all!
