At Least I Have Whisky  📍NYC based whisky fan/photog traveling around the world in search of great drams and new whisky adventures. 🥃 #atleastihavewhisky 🥃

On a recent trip to Amsterdam I took a quick train ride to @best_of_wines_whiskies to get a few bottles of whisky, including this @lagavulinwhisky bottled for the 2017 Islay Jazz Festival.
.
I’m still amazed at how advanced most rail systems are outside of the US and wonder... will America ever catch up?
.
.
NY trains might make me biased but @leastihavewhisky to deal with the subway delays!.

In collaboration with @adamoelvis and @yogi_dentist we photographed the stunning @rosannamastronardi . Guess who brought the booze?!.
.
This shoot was incredibly fun and I can’t wait to do it again.

A few weeks ago, after a decent night at the Borgata’s poker room, I made an impulse purchase while in Delaware. I hadn’t tried any offerings of @reservoirdistillery before, but the clerk said this was a winner. Skeptical, I glared at the old man on the bottle looking for guidance and noticed he was wearing an 🍏Apple watch. I figured if this Holland character could be so hip with wearable tech I could give up some of the other poker players’ money to try it out.
.
There’s an interesting story on how this RVA collaboration whiskey was developed with the intent to challenge the likes of PVW... I’m not sure if they’ve done that yet but @leastihavewhisky !.

Another year in the books, another great whiskey from Heaven Hill’s Parker’s Heritage Collection. Released a few years after a similar rye offering from their neighbors down the street I think this bourbon held up much better to the orange curaçao. Perhaps they learned something from the XCF, or maybe they just got lucky, either way... get in my belly!..
.
I’m not sure if I can consider this purchase as a charitable tax deduction but @leastihavewhisky !.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great Fall but Winter was pretty brutal because his bottle of McCarthy’s Whisky fell down during this shoot and was lost forever.
.
Damn angels heard I was talking smack and decided to teach me a lesson but @leastihavewhisky ... glasses.

Came home early from a work trip the other day, eager to relax with a tasty dram. I wasn't expected to be back in town for a few more days. Almost didn’t open the door as I heard giggles, slurping and moaning sounds on the otherside. My mind started to race as I wondered what was going on. My stomach was churning and I started to sweat as I contemplated how I would deal with whatever was happening inside our apartment. Should I have called ahead to announce my return or was it better to just show up and confront the issue head on?
.
Somehow I mustered up the courage to enter, and as I inserted my key into the door everything went silent. The door slowly crept open, then my jaw dropped. My heart began to ache and a tear streamed down my face as I realized what was going on. The damn angels were stealing my Jefferson's 25. WTF angels! You take from the barrel not my bottle you greedy little theives!
.
I can't always stop the angels from trying to steal my bourbon, but @leastihavewhisky !.

On my last trip to Germany the bar manager at my hotel recommended a wine shop South of Cologne where I found this Kavalan Vino Barrique at half the average retail selling price. The shop was on a dusty back road basically in the middle of a farm. The shop clerk was just as surprised to see me walk in as I was that she spoke English. The little adventures taken to find these shops are just as fun as enjoying the juice inside the bottles.
.
I only got up to 240kph on the autobahn, but @leastihavewhisky !.

This time of year, barrel strength bourbon really seems to hit the spot. It keeps me warm inside when it’s cold, and helps me forget about the bear market that is crushing my stocks. It’s nice to see that there are still some that are also affordable like this Old Ezra.
.
What is your favorite barrel strength bourbon for under $100?
.
My stock portfolio is taking a beating this month, but @leastihavewhisky !

Wow! This single barrel selection by @fiveeightwines is amazing. The DIY label reminds me of the remote controlled car kits that were popular when I was a kid. You got to put the decals on them just the way you wanted. If you could afford them that is.
.
I never did get that RC truck I wanted but @leastihavewhisky !.

Someone decided to try some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu last weekend and now I have a torn calf muscle and a bruise as dark as this anCnoc peatheart bottle.
.
Switch kicks and attempts like the last picture in this set to imitate @frombarreltobottle and their iconic bird & bottle image remind me that I need to stay on my level.
.
I may be grounded for a few weeks but @leastihavewhisky !.

At 30% rye, @newriff bourbon is incredibly smooth for a high-rye bourbon. Accompanied by an incredibly attractive bottle and retail price, this bourbon should do well to attract the attention of many whiskey consumers.
.
I had no idea there was a Newport, Kentucky but @leastihavewhisky !.

Wikipedia tells me that Quercus Garryana is an oak tree that grows from 0 to 1800 meters above sea level between SoCal and BC.
.
@bookersbrye tells me that Garryana is a species of wood that grows every time Garry sees Ana in a swimsuit.
.
I have no idea who’s right, but @leastihavewhisky !.
