I've been more of a Burbon fan for the past few years now ( JD, Makers Mark Etc...), but back in the day a Bottle of Johnny Walker Black or Red didn't have a very long shelf life at my house
My youngest son is only 20 but he's made 4 batches of Beer the last year or so ( darn good too) and he's already a "Beer Snob". I was constantly being told to try this and that and well......I'm falling into the Beer Snob mentality now as well. We have a Brew Pub close by that's been written up about and it's a great eatery as well. So I go there at least once a week with the wife for dinner and really good craft beers and Barley Wine Yum!
