Johnny Cash — The Man Comes Around
ichoosecake asked: Hi, I noticed no reviews on Bourbon Intelligencer since September. I hope you're fine and I'm looking forward to seeing your insights on something interesting soon. I'll impose two questions. 1. What are your thoughts on Monkey Shoulder if you've had it. I've tasted it only once and am pursuing it but it's eluded me in the bottle so far. I'm a third through a bottle of McKenzie Rye. What am I tasting? I know what I smell and feel but cant' resolve the taste. Cheers!
I appreciate the interest and the concern. Everything is completely fine - more than fine actually. I’ve been quite occupied with a few things as of late, thus I’ve taken a break. My wife’s pregnancy and my trade have been keeping me very busy. Also, the scope of the Bourbon Intelligencer, and the Life of a Whiskey Drinker is going to be expanding in the near future and that has taken what small amount of free time I have left. But I guarantee you that I have plenty of whiskey tasting notes to role out in the future - even more than before.
As for the Monkey Shoulder, I’m quite a fan. I think it’s a solid blend. Dry, and spicy fruits. I’ve never had the McKenzie Rye - I’ll keep my eye out for it.
