The 3 Drunken Celts

New blog post: The gospel, according to Seamus... some revelations, and effusive discussion about friends and family.  
I landed Friday at noon, feeling the familiar pang of excitement for the weekend ahead as I let the past week's stresses slough off, slowly but surely. I was, once again, in the city to meet up with some of my chosen family; those with whom I've shared many a drinks and laughs over the past 16 ...

Just in time for +Whiskies Wednesdays a little write-up of the Dalmore tasting last night.
LA Scotch Club – ClubMez Dalmore tasting and paired dinner at the Far Bar. EventFlyer Well that was a mouthful, and so was the evening. I've always liked Dalmore, but it never made a distinct impression on me until now – and now I even know why. Through conversation I learned Dalmore ...

Check it out! A longtime friend of The 3 Drunken Celts, +Robin Robinson shows up to 98Rock/Livewire to talk up The Great King Street from +Compass Box.    Always neat to see where Robin will turn up next, and even better when there's video of it! :)

Congratulations to Ted Pappas at +Big Bottom Whiskey for scoring a 95 in the Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2014. He is a friend of the group and makes some darn good whiskey. FYI you can now stop asking Fergus what's a good Bourbon under $50. http://www.binnys.com/all/big%20bottom#/?page=1

Great blog post by a friend of +PDX Whisky:
 
A mad morning dash from Campbeltown to the Islay ferry, then a slower afternoon walking to and from Laphroaig for a tour. Lots of food for thought and a very pleasant evening chatting with other visitors to the island.
The day began cold and wet. Not exactly ideal conditions when I needed to get on the road promptly, but it wasn't like I had any other options. After a solid breakfast (thanks again, David and Jean), I threw my panniers to the bike, put on my rain gear, turned on all my bike lights, ...

Woot woot! Almost time to make some whiskey. Go WVD! +Willamette Valley Distilling 
 
By special request from +Randy Raz Ullon for #whiskieswednesdays  / +Whiskies Wednesdays

Last week, I finally got the updated bond paperwork to hopefully finalize some of this federal licensing stuff. I shipped it off to the TTB (Trade and Taxation Bureau) to continue the process for obtaining my Federal licensing to begin distilling my own whiskies and other alcohols with my business partner +Corey Bowers under the business name +Willamette Valley Distilling. It's been a long process, but hopefully we will see approvals before the end of the year :)

Great post from Jordan on blending concepts and do-it-at-home suggestions :) 
 
Do you have a few open bottles of whisky at home? Then you can make your own blends.
Since the advent of the patent still in the mid-19th century, blends have reigned supreme in Scotland. While these days they may not always garner the critical acclaim of single malts, they were considered the best of what Scotland had to offer. To quote Alfred Barnard, who toured every ...

Time to raise a glass... why? Because we CAN!
 
It's Repeal Day! Without the events of Dec. 5th, 1933, the WVD boys would have something called "free time" and "money"!  ;)

In honour of this day we'll be raising a glass and toasting to the possibilities that repeal of the 21st has brought us! Cheers!

These were a gift from Husband Mine.  Given my druthers, I'd go with dark too, but a gift is a gift.

Story

*Never Forget the Funny* We're a whiskey, whisky, and whiskies tasting organization.
Introduction

The 3 Drunken Celts enjoy the dram for the dram’s sake, we hold closer to our hearts the camaraderie of friendships we have made because of our love for whiskey. Be it single malt Scotches, pure malt Ryes, or anything in between, we are devoted to proselytizing the good word of WHISKIES!

The 3 Drunken Celts’ G+ Page is designed to promote an appreciation of, discussion about, and consumption of good Whisky, Whiskey and Whiskies.

We aim to keep our members and guests apprized of the developments for the 3 Drunken Celts Whiskies tasting events as they are scheduled and foster open sharing of information as it relates to our collective love of whiskies. We believe you can never know too much about this wonderful dram, and have set up this G+ Page to help us all learn as much as we can!

The 3DC (as we are often affectionately referred to) are an open and loose knit collective committed to furthering the appreciation of all whiskies and advancing the ideals as well as membership of the organization. Our membership currently spans multiple states and even at least one member based in Europe (if Fergus is to be believed). 

Our mottos are: “Never Forget the Funny!” and “Leave Your Politics at the Door!” We strive to keep those ideas alive and well in all we do. Whether we are hosting a relaxed open tasting, or presenting a formal class in a seated tasting environment, we never take ourselves too seriously.

As Raphael Holinshed, writing in 1577 on this ancient beverage, says: “It sloweth age, it strengtheneth youth, it helpeth digestion, it cutteth flegme, it relisheth the harte, it lighteneth the mynd, it quickeneth the spirits, it cureth the hydropsie, it repelleth gravel . . . and trulie it is a sovereigne liquor if it be orderlie taken”.
I’d say that sums it up rather nicely…

Of course you can always take a gander at our “Rules” for “membership” here:http://3drunkencelts.com/blog/?p=6 
Just remember: there are no benefits of membership, only consequences... Won't you join us?
