Calvados Overload

6 hours in the car and 6 hours of tasting Calvados has left Driscoll asleep at the wheel. I'm taking April, 1st to examine myselves just a little bit and so I'm turning the comments ON just because I can. Got a problem? Have a question? Really feeling like you need to respond to a blog post from six months ago? Waiting to comment on Driscoll's taste in music? Now is your chance. Please feel free to bombard us with your opinions because I don't think you'll have another chance this year. By the way, that 1960 Malt Mill they found tastes terrible...

-David OG

HEY! What the hell is going on? This is crazy! This is anarchy! I'm turning these back off!

(thanks for all the nice words everyone!)

David&David, you guys make my day! Mind throwing in some cocktail jaunts (and blogging bout them) this trip?

Sounds like a great trip! Hope you can bring back some calvados like the Camut 15 yo and Armagnac like the Barrilion both were fantastic! The 20 year old Bouju is great caramel or not hope you bring it in to the store. Love your travel blogs keep up the good work and safe travels. Steve

Is Driscoll's hair natural, or was it the product of a defense department materials science project?

Nothing in particular prompted this. Just always wondered.

DOG, if you got in a fistfight with the guys who run Bladnoch, what would your fighting stance be?

If the big one struck the whiskey aisle, would K&L squeegee the floors, vat the result and bottle it as San Andreas Phoenix?

I hope David did not literally fall asleep behind the wheel.
I love the blog, and stopping by the RWC store. David OG, you should visit RWC during a tasting event and do a "Come Meet the Other David" thing.

We love the drama, but don't burn too many bridges bringing us the good stuff.

Maybe you should just get David D a tape recorder to get all this stuff down before he forgets it to get you a little more breathing room for the posts.

I would love to have comments more regularly, but I can see how this could easily head off the rails into whisk(e)y pedanticness. Maybe open them on some lighter posts?

Thanks for the great spirits,
Nick Kiest

Long overdue! Regardless, keep up the good work. Can't wait to hear more about the casks you having headed stateside.

Big thanks for the blog - love following the journey and hearing the stories behind all of your discoveries. Ty!

The Armstrongs are my boys... distant family relations! Don't go messin' with them anymore, Driscoll, or I'll cause a ruckus at one of your tastings...;-P

It's about time OG took over and brought some sense back to this blog, I was getting tired of the iron fisted Driscoll rule!

Comments on? DOG, you are THE MAN. It feels like 2010 again, except without the PVW on the shelf.

We need that Bladnoch, even if it means your buddy has to clean the malting floor with his tongue.

Can you get yourself back up to RWC sometime? Us local folks would enjoy saluting your good work in person.

My only question: How many hats did DD bring to wear?

Keep up the blogging on this trip -- entertaining stuff!! Going to drink some Camut in honor of your travels right now.
