This winter we spent a day planting Garry Oak saplings in Parkland, WA. The grove we are planting is one of the few places left in Washington dedicated to preserving this species' natural habitat. And yes, Matt is a natural with the shovel.

Two young Isalys going down this evening.
The 8 yr Bunnie was a nice punchy bunnie with layers of sweet and fruit and peat plat8ng well with each other. It was a nice little dram and wish it was available here. Sad to see this little 70cl import leave.
Like the Bunnie, the As We Get It is a 70cl import, but it's a young Laphroaig. It packs a punch and had a more strongly spirity character than the Bunnie. Unruly and raw it was more experience than enjoyment. Not too sad about this one leaving, but it was fun. .
I don't know a lot about Japanese Whisky. Bourbon is my thing. But I really enjoy Nikka Coffey Malt. Really nice chocolate, coconut and tropical notes. It's not a heavy or chewy whisky but there's something about it that I really dig.
To quote my boy Peat: "Now THAT's a shot" What do you guys think?
Also, on Friday check in for a promo code to join SMWS for essentially half off of the regular membership fee...I know right - Finn.
For Whiskey Wednesday this week, I went with Golden Fox aged rye whiskey from @bigspringspirits. We stopped by the distillery on our way out to visit family and I'm so glad we did because this bottle followed us home! This aged rye only had a short rest in the barrel, but it leaves that sharp pepperyness of the rye intact (I do like my ryes with a kick). I'm also getting maraschino cherries and almonds before that solid pepper spice finish. Really enjoying this on a warm evening while the sun sets.
