Most recently we celebrated in the combined birthday of both a Buffalo, and a Bear. To mark the festivities we decided to enjoy the wonders of a British style pub known as the British Beer Company (BBC) – which first off is a chain bar in American meaning the purpose of being a true British Pub is essentially out the window. BUT bring on the goofy racism.
Sorry this article is a week late, but I tried to login to the site at three separate occasions only to get a server error – which I took as a sign to get really drunk for my birthday and burn a pizza box using my fridge. Either way we come now to the final review of the Nauticon Panel and as you should – we’re finishing with a beer. A beer so rare only a single brand of store sells it, in essentially a single state, in a single part of the country.
What makes a man, is it the power in his hands? Is it his quest for glory? Well yes actually. Though to clarify glory is Scotch, and power? Well power is a Rusty Nail, and because this is the Buffalo Spirit Guide (And not something about tools and hammers) I am of course talking about the drink – The Rusty Nail.
Finally we come to the last spirit reviewed from Nauticon and while my comrades rated this overall I personally will be going over the finer details of this bourbon. Why? Because the Buffalo and Bourbon go together like – well fuck – buffalos and bourbon I guess.
Eagle-eyed readers will have noted I mentioned this being the ‘scotch’ of Cuervo’s a few weeks back. I would like to now publicly apologize for that statement as I now realize it was said during St Patrick’s day, and told to me secondhand. Now while we commonly here mix Mexican and Irish themes it would appear mixing whisky with tequila isn’t the best of ideas.
So we’ll be going over the reviews from the Live @ Nauticon event in the following month, but to give us some time to heal and sit down to actually write everything up we’ve decided to include a review into our repertoire that honestly we should have already done a year and a half ago.
Hello and once again. So for those who know Booze Reviews you may know that we don’t give a fuck about other reviewers with their A-B-C grading and any time a “reviewing company” leaves a little note in your liquor store saying something is a 90 and it’s not locked away in a cabinet guarded by hellbeasts we weep. Though not in an unmanly way, because we weep scotch, and then we drink that scotch. Which is why next week we’ll be doing Booze Reviews Live at Nauticon. And you want to know the funny thing – we don’t even know what were doing. Which can only mean one thing – that awesome is gonna happen. So if you’re in the New England Area head over and do that – because it’s a con that has spirits tastings – and anime. Which coincidentally is what I do with my life.
Hola! Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! I bet you’re wondering why we’re not using this golden opportunity to review a tequila – to which I can only say an old Spanish proverb. “It is not one to review that one cannot remember.” Now I’m not sure what that means but it sounded profound enough to excuse away why we started this morning with some scotch. Justice had actually considered mixability with cereal, but then we couldn’t decide which cereal. (Hint: should have been CTC)
In keeping with the “Old Timey Wimey” theme from last week we’ve reviewed another bourbon. We had planned to have an Old Crow review this one since we got ol’ granddad Buffalo to review last weeks, but apparently crows just squawk and shout anti-semitic statements. Who knew? So this week it’s back to a regular reviewer more commonly known as BuffaloJern.
Now sit down squirts because ol’ man Buffalo has got some stories to tell. Back in the war – kid voice: “ which war?” – the WAR WITH CANADA ya brat! Anyway back in the war only 3 things kept you going – the promise of your woman back home waiting for ya, the knowledge that your bullets, knives, and fists have killed more Canadians than you’ll remember – and whiskey – good old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
