  1. I appreciate the help and advice. I'm not adding to it to everything - I had some Four Roses Single Barrel last night and didn't add water. I think the water does help me enjoy the higher proof bourbons and not kill my reflux. With the information above (lowering the proof to 86), it makes me wonder if that's why I enjoy the RR10Y so much. Lots of flavor at less than 100 proof. One thing that I've learned as I've gotten into this bourbon thing, it's very subjective and varies from bottle to bottle and brand to brand. Lol. Although it's worth it. It's my evening drink of choice now.
  2. So, I just went and measured about what I pour. It's an approximation as the measuring cup I used has 4 oz as the lowest measurement - the good one is dirty. Based on what 4 oz came to in my tumbler, I'm thinking it's between 2 and 3 ounces of bourbon that I typically pour....and probably in between. Based on that measurement, I believe that I previously wasn't adding as much water as I thought. The ratio that I most recently saw was 0.5 ounces of water to 2 ounces of bourbon. Based on what I just saw, I'm thinking that's where I've been the last couple of nights.
  3. C'mon bro, don't talk that way about our GOAT....
  4. by Tori McElhaney Calvin Ridley always has been specific about the goals he sets for himself. In 2020, he said he wanted to be elite among league receivers. He wanted to earn his first 1,000-plus receiving yard season, too. He did both in 2020, and he did so in the shadow of a giant. Julio Jones may have been injured for a good portion of the 2020 season, but that doesn’t take away from what Ridley was able to do on his own when given the chance. Now in 2021, Ridley’s role shifts with Jones traded to the Titans. Ridley will step out of the shadow for the first time and into hi
  5. by Chris Kirschner The air inside Wells Fargo Center was tighter than a button on a pair of pants trying not to explode after eating a cheesesteak. The silence was deafening. Just a quarter before, the in-arena host appeared on the big video screen showing a decibel-meter rise from 95 decibels to 105 decibels — the sound equivalent of a jet taking off. By the end of the fourth quarter, the only noise that could be heard was the Philadelphia 76ers’ championship aspirations crumbling. It’s the kind of embarrassing loss that if the Sixers don’t turn this around and win in seven g
  6. @k-train Stopped at a store in a nearby town today while out working and picked up a bottle of Maker’s Mark Cask Strength as my current bottle is almost empty. I knew it looked different, but was in a hurry and didn’t pay attention. I took a look this evening to check it. It’s from batch 19-02 which I’m assuming is an earlier batch than 20-03. Just wanted to see if you had any tasting experience with this batch? Also, I realized that I have been stupid. I have been putting water in the 120+ proof bourbons that I drink from time to time - mainly the ECBP 520 and 920. I read an
  7. by Chris Kirschner The Hawks shot 36.6 percent from the floor. They shot 30 percent from 3. They shot just over 50 percent at the rim. Trae Young was 8-for-26 and sported athletic tape on his right shoulder from a minor injury he sustained in Game 3, which caused him to have it wrapped whenever he was on the bench. John Collins was 6-for-15. The Sixers shot 41 percent from 3. Joel Embiid had 17 points and 21 rebounds. Tobias Harris once again scored at least 20 points. Seth Curry was 7-for-10 from the floor. The Hawks were down by 18 near the end of the first half. The Hawks w
  8. by Tori McElhaney The Falcons are still in the early phases of setting up what the Arthur Smith era will look like in Atlanta. Throughout OTAs and mandatory minicamp last week, the emphasis was still on the install process. Smith said on Monday he’s pleased with how things are progressing, noting that the ones who have been there, in Atlanta, have done a nice job of working hard to understand the schematics of what he and defensive coordinator Dean Pees are working to install. Smith added, though, that the process is a two-way street. “It obviously goes both ways,” Smith
  9. by Chris Kirschner Nate McMillan said everything will be on the table for his team heading into Game 4 after the Hawks’ 127-111 loss to the Sixers on Friday. Adjustments are clearly necessary. He mentioned how Philadelphia’s size has been tough to handle as evidenced by the Sixers shooting 25-for-30 at the rim. Forty-three percent of the Sixers’ field-goal attempts came at the rim compared to the Hawks’ 29 percent. Philly’s length led to the Hawks having to shoot the majority of their shots from the midrange, which was the case in Game 2. Since Game 1, the Hawks’ 3-point attem
  10. Anybody else think of this when they read about the pushups and the laps? When I played baseball in school, the coach would make us run laps at practice for signs we missed during the previous game. It didn't take long to make sure you didn't miss a sign.
  11. Here's a Q&A with Eddie Russell on the 10Y https://rarebird101.com/2021/05/30/russells-reserve-10-year-2021-and-a-qa-with-eddie-russell/ Date: May 30, 2021Author: rarebird1014 Comments Surprise, surprise! Russell’s Reserve Thirteen Year Old Bourbon has arrived, and along with it, complete buyers’ hysteria. With prices on secondary whiskey markets averaging $500 a bottle (suggested retail price is $70), it makes the ten-year Russell’s Reserve seem like a steal at $35 (even with the hefty proof difference). I’d argue it is. We all have a favorite whiske
