Bear with me here on the spirits blog over the next few days. I've got one of the worst colds I've had in decades and the virus is currently ravaging our entire Redwood City store. All I can do to alleviate the symptoms thus far is to sleep, so I've been going to bed around 7 PM for the last few days and trying to stay in bed for as long as possible. The crazy thing is that each time I wake up I feel exactly as terrible. Normally resting for ten to twelve hours at a time results in some progress, but this is the damnedest bug I've gone up against in some time. It's a serious son of a bitch. If you start to feel sick this week, I highly advise you to prepare for war.
In the meantime, we'll have some fun things coming this weekend and early next week. A new batch of peated Couvreur (our heavily sherried and smoky malt), the regional blends from Douglas Laing, Wyoming whiskey, and more.
Hang with me! I'm going down for the count again today, hoping to return in better spirits tomorrow.
