2021 SURVIVAL DAY 56 (Hide-a-Spare-Key Fake Rock)

This Hide-a-Spare-Key Fake Rock is probably the most cost effective, simple bit of Hidden Survival Gear out there. If you are like me, you have ten or twelve keys that really matter. Door keys, office keys, car keys, motorcycle keys, four wheeler keys, snow machine keys, and the the keys to my stash boxes an gun safes. Sure, when they are all on one keyring I have an awesome mace, but that is heavy, and not realistic to carry around every day.

When its time to flee and get out of dodge, I know my backup keys are going to be where I need them because I have them hidden where I need them in these Hide-a-Spare-Key Fake Rocks.

  • Key holder that looks just like a rock
  • Ingenious way to hide key ‘in plain sight
  • Never locked out again
  • Molded poly-resin matches real rock in size, shape, texture, color, and weight
  • Weatherproof/windproof
  • Hidden tray underneath holds house, car or other keys up to 2-3/8″-length, 1″ wide

WHISKEY DREAMS – PADDY’S IRISH WHISKEY

Paddy’s Irish Whiskey is distilled by Irish Distillers, at the Midleton distillery in County Cork. It is a blended offering that is just about as affordable as Irish Whiskey should get. If you find a sub $20 bottle I’d really question what went into it.

The nose is really subtle. It’s a little malty, a little sweet that blends with a little alcohol.

The sip is just about as subtle. This is a thin whiskey. The mouth feel is watery, but its also beautifully simple. I’d say this is perfect for those times when the friends or the food is the focus, and the whiskey is going to flow freely, which is perfect as this Paddy’s Irish Whiskey is just about as affordable as it gets.

The finish is a little spice that overpowers the malt, but not in a bad way.

Paddy’s Irish Whiskey scored a 66/100, making it Sip Worthy, if event only by a point. Don’t let that score scare you off however. At this price, that score is really impressive.

Pros

  • For $20 bucks this is a great buy.
  • Great budget whiskey.
  • Affordable whiskey for new drinkers.

Cons:

  • Not a lot of complexity. Will underwhelm a more appreciative pallet.
  • Not a lot of anything on the nose.
  • If you drink a good bit of this, you might have a hangover. I’ve noticed that some bottles give me a headache the morning after, and this is one of them.
