Thank you for the birthday wishes @Hewie @Nozinan @bwmccoy @RianC, @talexander, @fiddich1980, @Victor, @cricklewood, and @Astroke.

@Nozinzn, it is true, I am well aged. @Hewie, I did celebrate with something special. @bwmccoy, I am looking forward to the next one. @RianC, a great dram was indeed shared. @cricklewood, good whisky for sure, as for great health it remains to be seen. @Victor, you are the Original Whisky Match Maker. This kind of friendship can't be measured in time, but we can try, with additional long-aged cask strength pours.

My kids prepared the perfect birthday meal, BBQ chicken wings and burgers. The charcuterie was excellent, featuring home made sopressata salami. The cheese board was loaded with a nice selection including my favourite, 30 month parmigiano reggiano. A spinach salad decorated in berries and pine nuts drizzled with olive oil-balsamic-maplesyrup dressing (no spices). Blueberry pie, what else would you expect, eh? We sipped a bourbon barrel-aged cab sav and put a king-sized dent in a bottle of Wiser's Legacy L16288. An absolutely majestic whisky. My kids are great!

Happy 152nd Birthday, Canada!

@paddockjudge the cumulative age of those six bottles is up not far from 152 years, is it not? Is the number exactly 152?

@paddockjudge It's also a hockey team: goalie, 2 defencemen and 3 forwards with Wendel Clark wearing the "C". Very Canadian. maple_leaf

@cricklewood, wishing you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I raise my glass in a toast of good health to you with Canadian Club Sherry Cask, hahaha, just kidding, I'm out of ginger ale. Toasting you with a special CC, the 40 YO.

@cricklewood Happy Birthday and many happy returns on your B-day! I'll try to figure out a decent dram to pair with the Dead K's.

Aww folks, much thanks for all the well wishes! I appreciate it.

@paddockjudge im not home so I'm saving that CC sherry for the weekend wink

@OdysseusUnbound @Nozinan I look forward to the reveal of the mystery dram.

@Victor merci! Hope to raise a dram together soon.

@fiddich1980 I listened to Government Flu tonight after your mention of DK. I think something young and feisty is ideal.

@BlueNote that's a great dram to get toasted with.

As for me, I'm cracking open my birthday gift. Reserve Légendaire, French whisky finished in Jura wine casks. Surprising, like a kind of yeasty Fino sherry finish with a touch of peat... Easy drinking.

Cheers!

@cricklewood - Happy belated birthday. Sorry I missed it yesterday. I will have to see what I can find in my cabinet tonight that will be worthy of the celebration.

@cricklewood - it’s been 2 weeks since I posted that I would toast something in honor of your birthday after I got home. Unfortunately, when I got home I had a 102 degree fever and that later turned into pneumonia. Haven’t had a dram in over 2 weeks until tonight. In a belated toast to your baseball, Glenmorangie 15 Year Sauternes Wood Finish-Distillery only bottle. We purchased this bottle in 2010. I don’t drink from it very often and it’s almost gone, but it is so good. Happy belated birthday.

@Nozinan - Thank you. I think I’m finally on the mend.

@cricklewood - baseball, should have been birthday. I was watching a game when I typed that so it must have been a Freudian slip. :-)

@bwmccoy sorry to hear about you being down and out I hope you're on the mend. Thanks for remembering to tip one back for me, it's much appreciated, especially when it's from a bottle that is dear to you.

Cheers.
