Coming Soon…

And so it’s May. In Minnesota we’ve gone straight from never-ending winter to summer. The mosquitoes might even get here before the tree pollen. You’re right, none of this has anything to do with what I might or might not post on the blog this month. Well, the tree pollen might: two years ago, two months after moving to the street we live on, allergies made it impossible for me to smell or taste anything for weeks on end. What I’m saying is that if there’s anything on the long list of whisky reviews that you’d like me to get to for sure, you should let me know soon.

In addition to whisky, I’ll have a number of Twin Cities restaurant reviews as well—and I remain open, as always, to recommendations for places to get to.

  1. Amrut Peated CS! Some of the guys on Connosr are always saying that’s one of the best peaters around. I’ve never seen on in real life, though, so it would take an online order to actually get one. So, another another opinion would be helpful there.

    Good luck with the pollen. Today’s May 1, and right on cue, I started sneezing up a storm today.


      • Here in Madison, WI, the first Total Wine just opened. Until now, I was refusing to shop there—but I suppose Amrut Peated CS could change my tune.


        • Since TW is new to the area I urge you to look for temporary deals. At least scroll through the online inventory. If MN is any model, in a few weeks/months they’ll raise the prices considerably and THEN you can refuse to go there!


          • Ah, I didn’t think to check online! Thanks. (…) Yep, they’re a big corporate outfit, so there’s their online inventory alright.

            I scrolled. I found a couple things that are like 5% cheaper than my favorite local places, but nothing too exciting. And no Amrut Peated CS.

            I’m not shopping there.
