    I'm fully convinced these make your overall sexiness level increase by 2.5/3 points. So I'm a solid 7 today

    Good taste! Buffalo Trace is one of my favorite bourbons, its a staple in my liquor cabinet. Makes a heck of an Old Fashioned (though I generally prefer rye in those).

    I really want Allen Edmonds to make their own version of this shoe. It's a Johnston and Murphy Hannigan Cap Toe. I love the look and it's pretty comfortable, but I know that the quality is no where close to what AE can do.

    What other non-AE shoes do you guys own that you wish AE would produce a version of?

    Great taste gents. My go to is Knob Creek but I enjoy both of the others you mentioned. That and Glenlivet Nadurra are my go-to beverages.

    I'll throw Blanton's in the mix as well, I love that stuff and am getting close to spelling out BLANTONS with the cork tops!

    Blantons is awesome. Unfortunately, the liquor stores in NC never, ever have it. Oh how I wish for a free market liquor system.

    I've been buying Wild Turkey 101 to use in Mint Juleps- surprisingly good IMHO. Also, Bookers is pretty fantastic (at a ridonkulous 129 Proof...)

    Speaking of bourbon:

    This is the reason I do just ^that. Like I'm looking for the return of the Sl*tty Pumpkin.

    It's funny- I tend to make mint juleps with higher proof bourbon so the ice doesn't cut the alcohol too much, which means I'm usually using WT 101. I tried it with bookers once, and the ice lowered the alcohol to a level that was still above the 101 straight. After two of those on a Saturday afternoon with a cigar, I was done for the rest of the day.

    Hmmm... I don't really do mint juleps because of how sweet they are when you mix sugar + a sugary liquor like bourbon. If I'm making a making drink like that, it would be a caiparinha.

    I drink my bourbon with at maximum 1 rock per 2 oz pour. Just enough to cool it down and open it up a bit.

    Wasn't National Scotch Day yesterday?

    If not, I guess I'll pour myself another glass of Oban tonight as well...

    However, for the office today is a Merlot kind of day...

    (I'm not one to break tradition, therefore coffee mug included)

    My decade-old memory of Bookers (don't drink it much anymore) is of a rustic-industrial members only scotch bar in the basement of a brownstone, the upstairs of which was converted into a foppish wine bar.

    Two fingers. Drop (and I mean a drop) of water. Unfiltered cigarette. One glass, one smoke. Intent wasn't to soften the edge of a rough day, but to revel in its roughness.

    Not much healthier than punching yourself in the face, but that's what I was going for on those nights. [​IMG]

    The number is 8268, which probably means the 108 last or 678 last. Both fit me well. I saw these on Ebay and was considering them.

    My attempt at matching on a casual Thursday. I'm now realizing that I need to edge dress these up when I get home. Perhaps over a glass of Woodford Reserve.

    Need Supply occasionally does a Natural CXL Indy boot on Barrie, which is significantly more tapered than Trubalance. They call it the "Gamble's Hill" Indy Boot. It's been a while since they've run it, but you never know, they might release it again soon. http://needsupply.com/gamble-s-hill-indy-boot.html

    It's also somewhat unique in that the moc toe is hand-stitched, which they only usually do on shell Indy boots.
