So I went with another beer..

--> Cigar City/Bruery -- Dos Costas Oeste

And the thing went off like dropping a Mentos in Diet Coke....

Aftermath....

That is what happens when you are thinking you want wine and you grab a beer... what is left is still good though.

It was a good beer - kind of got me drunk at the end of the evening -- or maybe that was the brandy...

--> Carhartt - 2010 - Sangiovese - 11 Oaks Vineyard - Santa Ynez

Down to the last few bottles.

Sorry about that, I'll point to more detailed reviews after I get to know them a bit. But as they are both Ex Bourbon casks, I thought they would fit in nicely with the September Tasting:

http://www.whiskymag.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=17616

But if you want the cliff notes:

Tomatin- Is like drinking a wonderful cream based dessert.

Glenallachie- Not quite sure what to make of this one yet, initial impression is very positive, but at the same time it seems incredibly salty, almost like eating pure sea salt, sort of salty.
