Death’s Door is an interesting whiskey. Instead of using a traditional whiskey yeast the distillers use a champagne yeast on an 80:20 mash bill of hard red winter wheat to malted barley.
Thankfully my initial fear that this was going to be more akin to white lightening than bourbon were ill founded. Death’s Door’s nose reminded me more of vodka than whiskey. There is malt and alcohol, but for me, the nose is very neutral and not very pronounced. I do have a minor sinus cold, so I’m curious if that will change when I’m back to 100%.
The mouth feel is clean and crisp and the opening on the front of my tongue is creamy malt, that almost, but not quite, turns into butter cookies. That opening is quite lovely. I wish it had finished as nicely. As the whiskey reaches the back of your throat a few of the rougher notes come through. It is unsweetened dark chocolate and raisins left in the sun.
I enjoyed this Death’s Door and will save what’s left of the bottle to see what a few of my friends think of it. The whiskey spent just a little bit of time in uncharred Minnesota oak barrels, but I think the champagne yeast played a bigger part in the flavors at play in this whiskey.
I’m giving Death’s Door a 68/100, making it Sip Worthy. I would call this a novelty, and it is different, but it isn’t making its way into my Whiskey Safe.
The champagne yeast adds a creamy note that reminds me of Irish Whiskey in a pleasant way.
Different, very different. if you like trying new things, you should try Death’s Door, even if its a one time buy.
The opening on the front of the tongue is all malt, creamy sweetness.
If your looking for bourbon, this is going to be an odd duck for you.
The finish is a little rough on the back of the tongue.
$40 is a little bit high for this bottle. $25 or $30 seems like a fairer price.
Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse opens with Blake Anderson (Workaholics fame) singing into his mop, and quite well I must say. He’s a janitor at what appears to be a research facility, and its not long before things go really badly for our beloved janitor. As the researcher struggles with a snack machine, our Department of Defense (DOD) patient gets woken up by the janitor’s antics.
With the stage set, we cut over to a scout recruiting session that transitions into the weekend camping trip planning. Sadly for Augie, his two friends, Ben and Carter are done with scouts, they just don’t know how to tell Augie yet. Their planning gets interrupted when they slam into a deer. This introduces the “popular” kids to the mix, and the dreaded “little brother” statement from the popular girl, Kendal, to Ben.
Things only get weirder, because the deer got up and moved off being plowed into by a car. I guess the Zombie Virus isn’t isolated to humans?
It’s not long before the scout leader encounters the deer in the woods, and is forced to put it down with his lucky knife. I believe this is the first time I’ve seen a Zombie Deer get killed, and that is just special. Who doesn’t remember losing their Zombie Deer Death Virginity right?
Unfortunately for Scout Leader Rogers, the doctor from the research facility is nearby, and he doesn’t get any time to celebrate his victory over the deer.
Back in town, Ben and Carter attempt to buy some beer, which introduces us to the town’s cool stripper who helps the kids out -because that’s what strippers do.
After setting up camp with Augie, Ben and Carter sneak off, thinking they are heading to the secret high school party. After getting caught sneaking off by Augie, Ben and Carter end up in town – back at the strip club.
The first few minutes of Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse was epic, followed by some content to set up the story, and then things really kick off around the 30 minute mark with the introduction of the Zombie Stripper.
This leads an awesome Zombie Kill that was fairly unique. How often do you see the broken bottle turn into a blood spout?
While Carter is kicking some Zombie butt, Ben is getting saved by they lovely Denise Russo, played by Sarah Dumont, who definitely qualifies as a Hotty with a Shotty. Once outside, the small group of survivors realizes what they are up against, after the only thing that takes down one of the creatures is a head shot. Zombies…
The group is forced to flee a moment later after they spot a small horde, but they don’t get far in their getaway car before they lose their mini donut spare and are forced to put the wheel back on. Lucky for them, Denise is a total bad ass.
Meanwhile Augie has also headed into town only to find himself at Scout Leader Roger’s house – just in time to almost get eaten by his scout leader turned Zombie.
Meanwhile, Ben, Carter, and Denise flee to the police station, only to find there isn’t any help to be had. With a horde behind them, they flee to the only safety there is to be had, and end up surrounded in a jail cell.
Augie ends up saving the group, which leads to an odd scene where Carter squeezes a trapped Zombie Cop’s boobs. Really?
Free of the police station, the group comes on a lone Zombie, which leads to a Brittany Spears sing along with a Zombie, at least until a soldier shows up to rescue them. Unfortunately for the group, the soldier has already been bit – and the learn after killing him that the town is going to be bombed in a few hours.
The group decides their only solution is to find the hidden party, to try and safe their friends (who didn’t invite them to the party). Movie logic right?
While searching for the party location, our group of survivors ends up in a fight at one of their houses, which leads to a nice decapitation before they escape via a trampoline.
This leads to one of the over the top moments in the movie, as Ben is forced to hold onto an old man’s genitalia as he’s hanging out a window. This was one of those gags I could have done without.
This leads the group to the crazy cat ladies house, and her cats want revenge!
After escaping the cat house, the team hits the local hardware store. They need weapons so they can go save the kids at the high school party. As our group prepares, we get treated to another over the top gag as a young lady gets oral that turns into being eaten for real. Wow, this movie really didn’t hold back anything.
Lucky for the popular kids, our group of Scouts show up just in time to save them from the Zombie horde.
Overall, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse scored a 67/100, making it Worth Your Time. If you like raunchy, you are going to love this movie. For me, the over the top gags were a bit too much here and there, although some of them did make me laugh at the same time I was cringing.
This is what Trump has done to the “Old Republican Party”. It is now filled with unintelligent Trump worshippers who’s only policy is hate.
Save our country, save the Republican party, vote out anyone who supports Trump. Vote out anyone who supports hate and bigotry. Let’s vote them all out and get back to our core values. For me that means not spending money we don’t have – and helping the middle class.
The New Republican Party should be about fair taxes, fiscal conservatism, universal voting and universal healthcare. Let’s make our ideas the centerpiece, and win.
I am glad that I’m back on track this week, and the weight trend line is going in the right direction again.
I do see this odd trend that I can’t really explain. When I fast for a day I tend not to lose weight, but when I eat a low calorie diet I do lose weight. The low calorie diet that seems to work best for me is a quarter cup of mixed nuts and coffee for breakfast and then one egg with some fresh salsa (no added sugar), sour cream, and some cheese for dinner.
When I follow that meal plan, my body seems to respond well, and doesn’t go into starvation mode, which is the only way I can explain how fasting results in no weight loss.
I’m so close, I can’t wait to get into the 230s!!!!
Layers, layers, layers. Any survival plan needs a backup plan, and once you have all your backup to your backups completed, you start to work on the backup to the backup to the backup, which is exactly what I use this Tire Foam Diversion Safe for. I have an old shed on the corner of my property. Hidden on a shelf full of old spray paint, quartzs of oil and random parts from two decades of mowers, blowers, and chainsaws is a can like this Tire Foam Diversion Safe with a few keys and a small stash of money. It’s not a lot, but its enough to get me into my house, a gun safe, and a vehicle. What else do I need?
Blends in perfectly.
No one will ever suspect this is a hidden safe.
A perfect hiding place for the garage or vehicle.
The best place to hide valuable items in plain sight.
The bottom screws off to reveal the secret stash area.
I’m a gun loving Republican who doesn’t believe we should spend money we don’t have.
Somehow Republicans have turned into corporate shills for the top 0.1%. The working class Republican no longer matters to McConnel and the Republican members of congress.
We are the only industrialized nation without universal healthcare. We are the richest nation on the planet, yet we have people dying because they can’t afford medications, and people freezing to death because it helped a big company make more money (Texas).
This is not an either or. I can support Universal Healthcare and still be a Republican. We need to raise the taxes on the rich, and fund social programs so people can have some quality of life.
Let’s make a New Republican Party that is fiscally conservative and socially liberal. I don’t care who you want to marry. I don’t want to see anyone (regardless of sexuality) making out in public. Go get a room. And invite me to your wedding, I love weddings, even though I can’t dance.
If I ever get tapped by the government to move super critical secrets that data on a thumb drive and hiding it in my Storage Soles. Until then I’ll use these Storage Soles if I need to securely move anything from diamonds to bitcoin (on a drive) so if I happen to get mugged, my survival stash is safe.
