    following up... my impressions are that s2000 is well worth $400. sound good with everything. tested blu ray last night with the optical out and a fight scene greatly alarmed the dog.

    50/50... wife leaves for a work trip the following day and i'm sure we'll have some stuff to take care of. a non-HC friend mentioned this concert a while back and might be interested too. he saw NeO the last time they were here (the show i had to pass on).

    Catoctin isn't half bad if I remember right. Had it a long time ago in San Francisco, seem to recall it was slightly toned down from something like Willett Family Estate 2-3 year (actual Willett distillate, not the old MGP they sourced) but still in the same spectrum. I think Catoctin also does a limited cask strength bottling and I would buy that if I saw it (unlikely in IL though). Knob Creek Cask Strength 2009 is good. One of the best values in rye in the last few years considering anything of a similar age and proof is now $150+ (see Kentucky Owl). Naaman originally recommended it to me, and I took my bottle to Jeff's to compare to an old Willett FE 5 year rye. It's more a bourbon than a rye in some respects, like Rittenhouse in a way. But that's just how Beam does rye.

    scratch another one off bucket list... Smashing Pumpkins at United Center last night. 31 songs all from first five cds (except for covers and one new single), 3 of the 4 OG crew. hoped for this for at least 10 years, couldn't have been better.

    I’d pass on Koval, just too expensive for what it is. Not sure on the others as I’ve never had them but High West is generally solid.
