WHISKEY DREAMS – Slane

Slane Irish Whiskey is blended from three casks. virgin oak and seasoned Tennessee/Bourbon casks, and then the final cask previously held Oloroso Sherry.

The nose is sweet and malty that changes to caramel as it fades. I can imagine the faint hints of sherry as well, but I’m not sure if that is real or the power of suggestion because I know its in there.

The palate is malt and butter cookies that is sweet and creamy as it hits the mid tongue. The finish is all dry sherry. I’ve had a few other Irish Whiskeys finished in Oloroso Sherry casks, but I have to be honest that this is the first one that I really liked. They did a great job blending the malty goodness of the base Irish Whiskey with the dryness of the sherry.

I really enjoyed this bottle of Slane and plan on putting a bottle in my Whiskey Safe. This is a great bottle for new drinkers who are now getting just a bit more into what makes a good nose and wonderful palate. Slane earned very point of its 74/100, making it Sip Worthy.

Pros

  • Pleasant malty sweetness on the nose.
  • Perfect balance between the opening malt and the closing sherry notes.
  • Whoever blended this whiskey serves a medal.
  • Great whiskey to transition a new drinker from more basic flavors to something with a little more complexity.

Cons:

  • If you aren’t a fan of Oloroso Sherry, you may not like the finish on this whiskey.

60 MIN CHALLENGE – DAY 147

It took a huge effort to get on the treadmill today. One of my older son’s and his girlfriend KT came over last night to play board games, which also means that we had a few drinks. Getting on the treadmill wasn’t exactly what I wanted to do, but I drank two liters of water and got on.

The good news is that the hangover meant I didn’t feel any back pain or other discomfort.

ZOMBIE MOVIES – The Last Hope (2017)

The Last Hope was originally released in 2017, but for some reason Amazon lists it as released in 2020? Is that when they purchased the rights or released it maybe?

Sadly, the The Last Hope could have been so much more than it was. There are some really wonderful Zombie hordes and fight scenes, but the story and dialogue are so all over the place that it is hard to follow.

Whoever made this movie also has a very poor outlook on men. There is a very strong rapey vibe at multiple points, which makes me worry for the writer/director. That came from somewhere, and it’s likely not for a good reason.

There is a lot of shaky camera work, and at times the audio seems muddled. The close in physical effects were all good (lots of blood) but the CGI gunshots were laughable at times.

Overall the attempt at a deeper story hurt The Last Hope a lot, it would have been so much more if it just stuck to a simple “Zombie Survival” theme and didn’t try to get a little deeper.

The Last Hope scored a 24/100, putting it in Just Bad territory. If your drunk and don’t want to follow the plot, a few of the fight scenes are worth watching however.

2021 WEEK 10 – WEIGH IN

It was a really rough week at work, and that means I stress eat, so I was just happy I lost weight this week, even if it was by a few fractions of a pound. Life is hard, don’t beat yourself up over the little things.

POlitics – Blue Lives Don’t Matter to Trump Republicans

I’m what I call a New Republican, or a Real Republican. For me that basically means that I’m not a Trump Republican who screams about Blue Lives Matter – and than act like its fine that Trumps Insurrection led to at least one officer dying during the coupe attempt, one who lost an eye, and another who lost their life to suicide after.

Blue Lives don’t matter if your Trump Supporter. All that matters is that they bow down to their would be dictator, and anything he does is okay by them.

Everyone who marched on, and incited the coupe attempt needs to face the full force of the law, and at the very least, be voted out of office during the next election cycle.

2021 SURVIVAL DAY 65 (TRACGRABBER Tire Traction Device)

I’ve seen a motorist out in the sand make a set of these TRACGRABBER Tire Traction Device out of rope and a chunk of two by fours – but it took him forever to get the contraption on his tires. Much better to just keep a set of these TRACGRABBER Tire Traction Devices in you vehicle and be ready whenever you get stuck in the sand, snow, or mud.

If your cabin or bolt hole is off road, these Traction Devices can be a life saver. My buddy has a cabin up in the Poconos and while the cabin is amazing, if you are trying to get to it in the snow or rain it means walking three kilometers unless you have studded tires, and even then, these Traction Devices are almost a must have.

Post Apocalypse, the roads are going to be parking lots, parking lots full of Zombies, so driving along the median may be the only path to make any progress, and trust me you don’t want to do that without making sure you don’t get stuck.
