Tonight's #cocktail ... ... is not a cocktail, but sometimes simpler is better. This is a glass of @jurawhisky 21 Years Aged Single Malt Scotch, rested in Sherry Casks, a gift from many years ago from @countxero. It's been sitting on my bar, un-opened, waiting for the right moment.
About nine and a half years ago when my daughter was born, another friend gave me a bottle of Scotch to celebrate her birth. Earlier today, Jeff's and my friend for nearly 30 years, @transplantedindc , was blessed with the birth of his son. So, I have finally cracked open your gift, Jeff, to offer a virtual cross-country toast to Loren, Mary, and their new son, Luke.
