WOW!!! Look what my wife Rose just gave me for Christmas! It's an extremely rare older bottle of 30 year old The Balvenie single malt scotch whisky (in the wood box!)
This wood box was used many years ago before the casket box and now the double box hinged box they use today. It's also a special lot number of some of David Stewart's finest 30 year old. Just the regular 30 year old today is $1000+ a bottle where I live, but this very rare older lot number is ?$$$$? My wife wouldn't tell me the cost other than she knew when she found it, it was exactly what I would've wanted and... She couldn't have nailed it any better. I use to see these years ago on auction sites for alot of money! Bad thing is I probably will never open it and drink it because it is so very rare. I told everyone here that unless Jesus shows up it won't get opened or if I win a hundred million dollar plus lottery I'll celebrate winning. Needless to say this probably won't get opened...
It's a rare collectable!

Thanks for the private messages of support about my father and mother in law. I never knew so many people knew them in my age group. It's been about two and half years now, but seems like yesterday...
I make this public so others can see what Dr. Denison said about Yandall(click on picture). I should have put this up sooner, but sometimes life has you so busy it's hard to get any real free time to think about what to say about Yandall without making it into a book...

Yandall was and still is the only person ever to teach in both philosophy and theology in the doctoral programs in several universities here and abroad holding dual PhDs and numerous other undergraduate degrees.
He was the most humble man that I have ever known, but made typical so called geniuses look very uneducated and yet he never made anyone else feel less superior to him and always made everyone else feel good about themselves no matter who they were...
Although when it came to his own family he was extremely particularly who he would let in the family circle. He never thought anyone good enough to be with one of his three daughters. If I had daughters I would've been just like that too. I was so lucky to have met Rosemary and later to have become his son in law. For a man this great to have treated me as his own son is an honor I will cherish for the rest of my life...

For the Tequila drinkers out there, my favorite Tequila with a lime slice and some sea salt😊
Gran Patron Platinum Tequila is definitely one of the best. An expensive Patron Tequila at $150+ for a 750ml bottle, but there's 3 more expensive Patrons that are a little to pricey and the Gran Patron Platinum is really smooth... You'll be asking yourself Where's the bite? Because it's that smooth.

The Balvenie has changed their packaging on their 30 and 21 year old Single Scotch Malt Whisky.
Gone is the casket boxes with the latch. Now it's a hinged box with a cover box. I'll be missing the old casket box😢
I bought a new bottle of 30 year old last night, so here's the pics of the new packaging.
It's still the same ol' liquid gold Single Scotch Malt Whisky from The Balvenie we've all come to expect from Malt Master David Stewart.
Nowhere else will you find a distillery that still grows its own barley, still malts in its own traditional floor maltings and still employs a team of coopers to tend all the casks and a coppersmith to maintain the stills.

Well of course I'm spoiled rotten😊!

Here's my The Balvenie collection of Scotch.
30 yr old $738 plus tax, 21 yr old $210 plus tax and 17 yr old $140 plus tax, prices in Texas USA.
I only drink the 30 yr old, but I share the 21 yr old and 17 yr old. Family gets the 21 yr old and friends get the 17 yr old.
You know your life is great if you're drinking The Balvenie 30 yr old single malt Scotch. It's liquid gold in a bottle and an experience you'll cherish. The 21 yr old done in a port cask at the end of its 21 year cycle is a really great second choice and a very tasteful experience too. The 17 yr old finished in a sherry cask is alot smoother than the 12 yr old double cask which is The Balvenie entry level at $50 a bottle and it is an excellent single malt Scotch too. You might ask, why I would spend that much money on any liquor? I don't drink to get drunk, I drink for the taste and until you drink something that high end you'll never know how smooth and soothing 94.6 proof alcohol can be. I drink it straight, just pour a half ounce in a whiskey glass and sip it. I'm very fortunate that I can afford to drink these wonderful Scotches.
David Stewart the brew master at The Balvenie in my opinion is the greatest single malt Scotch maker of all time. There's a 40 yr old that's $4000 and only make 150 bottles a year. There's also a 50 yr old that's $35,000 and only make 50 bottles a year. These 2 are out of my price range as far as my daily after work scotch drinking goes. I have a friend that drinks the 40 yr old, but he's been on the buyer list since his dad died and passed his name on the list to him. I've had several glasses of it over the years. Yes you can definitely taste the difference over the 30 yr old.
If you're wondering if all these different ages are actually better than the younger ones, YES they are and if you can buy one I highly recommend it. You won't be sorry and will cherish the experience!

This is my best buddy in the world "Rusty" one of my 4 long haired Dachshunds. They're loyal to the death and definitely pound for pound the toughest dog I've ever seen. You mess with one of them and the other 3 will pack up on you.
The only bad thing about long haired Dachshunds is having to keep their long hair washed, conditioned and brushed. My wife calls them her little furry snuggle monsters.

Some people say their just animals, but my mother-in-law's little Yorkie "Puppa" laying at the foot of her hospice bed says it all. She passed away today from pancreatic cancer while "Puppa" laid there with utter sadness in his heart. Normally this dog is as hyper as them come, but when we brought him into the hospice room you could tell his little heart sank and he just laid at the foot of her bed almost lifeless. I could tell he was just as sad as the rest of us in the room losing someone he loved too. Yeah dogs do have feelings and love in their hearts!
God bless our little furry friends...
