    yeah the only Stagg Jr I’ve personally bought was batch 1 and it was straight jet fuel. i’ve tried later batches and it’s much better now.

    yep, another Small opened in Lincoln Park very recently. the menu is much more limited, mostly just the burger and booze but what else do you need? i'll have to go to one soon and experience it without waiting an entire evening...

    important things people - don't that tonight is Burns Supper. one of these years i'm gonna find a way to have proper haggis... but instead i'll just be doing some combination of ledaig, ardbeg, and bowmore sans Scottish food fare. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/burns-night-haggis-address-poem-2018-robert-burns-scotland-poet-a8175671.html

    don't know anything about wigle. barrell has made a decent name for itself as an independent, non-distilling producer - similar to the willetts and smooth amblers of the world. yes, they are expensive and you will never know the exact source. but everything is cask strength, non chill-filtered, and most seem to have a decent age (7-10 years even where they do a blend). i personally have passed on them at retail because they're not quite a good enough value compared to four roses private selections, elijah craig barrel proof, even newer stagg jr. batches. one other cool thing about barrell is they've done a few different tennessee whiskeys for single barrel bottlings (most likely sourced from george dickel) which is highly unique for an independent bottler and they've have started to bottle rye and rum, both of which i heard were decent.
