probably traveling tailors I'd argue MTM often starts out worse than OTR but after a couple of iterations gets better
yeah a lot of options and I haven't used any of them personally... basically shops where you can access MTM programs like Harrys, Holts, GotStyle, Brooks Brothers etc there's MTM companies like Garrison, Xavier, House of Salgado, some new one I read about on BlogTO upstairs somewhere, etc and bespoke in all it's levels like Trend etc actually come to think of it I'm a little outdated on local info myself it seems
I'm a little new to this personal finance thing so in the span of two years have gone from holding cash in a TFSA to GIC's to RBC MF's and now just opened a Questrade account and will be shifting over my RRSP (like your 401K?) and TFSA (I think that's like your Roth?) to invest in some bonds and equities (ETF's). So feeling pretty good about getting a handle on this stuff for the first time.I know you guys are usually posting about individual stocks but with a small chunk...
yeah, like I said pretty new at this stuff . Huh, I could have sworn Grouse was a major component of something or other. Or rather, isn't Walker a blend of other scotchs? maybe I've got to go way back to school on this hobby...your advice re: classics makes total sense. Because there's so little liquid, proportions are pretty important. I'm used to cooking where a dash of this or that is usually ok to experiment with. Re: Alexander, maybe I'm still off but in my mind the...
So finally cracked open a few much anticipated bottles last night. First, Bookers. Wow wow wee wow were you guys ever right about this. Now this is bourbon! I took it neat with small sips. Got an immediate whole mouth hot caramel swirl. My mouth just lit up with warmth. Smooth to drink and besides a little tongue numbing, no sharp kick after swallowing. It was just a taste before heading out but I'm really happy this one's in the collection and looking forward to drinking...
So if I'm not mistaken, Grouse makes up a fair portion of Walker. With that in mind, I've tried Famous Grouse and found it meh, not particularly bad, but nothing overly interesting either. Then there's Black Grouse, which I guess is their darker richer older version. I recently picked up a limited edition bottle called Black Grouse Alpha, on sale locally for $35 at which price I figured it was worth a shot. I found is surprisingly and easy drinker. Now I can't compare it...
yeah those are pretty much my two sources as well. There's a huge YouTube community and blog list but honestly most of my time is at Basenotes. I find Basenotes a little snooty and stuffy and the mods are too active, but overall the opinions are more informed and reviews are generally more academic. There is quite a bit of bias towards niche though, so IMO Fragrantica adds more female and mainstream scent options to the mix. yesterday's scent was Boucheron's Jaipur...
bump for a good thread
first one of the summer. damn it feels good. and yes, I've already got some Hendricks and will be buying some Fevertree soon enough...
Yeah I had that Belvenie 21 Port a couple of times. Great nose, pretty good taste. It's a little pricey for me at my stage so a pass in that sense, and also maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree here, but I see there's a lot of great Scotch at the $60-80 range and some interesting stuff around the $100-120 range, but after that $150+ sort of point, it's more about unusual bottlings, or rare things, etc and often diminishing returns. Sure there's some amazing stuff, but I...
