Let’s Go Athletics!

Wouldn’t it be great to see the Yankees get bumped out on the wildcard spot?  Come on Oak-town, do your thing!

Two teams to root for right now- The Red Sox and Oakland.

CIGARISM Small Size Aluminum Alloy Metal Cigar Ashtray Review

Perfect for the deck, it’s heavy and feels premium like it should be at least double the cost.  I also like how deep it is so ash will stay contained unlike a shallow ashtray.

  • Size : 4.72″×2.75″×0.98″ Weight: 225g
  • Color: Gray (As per pictures shown)

Attention HomieCast Castmates: The First Ever HomieCast Bourbon 🥃 Blind Taste-Off


Here’s what I propose-

We each bring a different bottle of bourbon to my house. My lovely Kate pours a small glass of Bourbon A for each of us. We take notes individually and rate them.  Then on to the next Bourbon without knowing which Bourbon we’re drinking and we take notes and rate.

In the end Ill compile the notes and reveal which ones we enjoyed the most.

Id like when you buy the 750 ml bottle to take note of the cost so we can include that in the results.

Maybe we can have the guys from  @northshorewhiskey come by and tell us things to look for but I kinda want our uneducated results to be unfiltered.

What say ye, @chrisdewolfe @craigkimberley @jameseves @rickdoucette @scottybacklash @helderpimental @ericlorden @mikecodair @chrismccarthy @johnmcelhenny @deisel

Some Bourbon that I think should be in the discussion: Woodford Reserve, Angel’s Envy, Buffalo Trace, Bulleit, Elijah Craig, Knob Creek, Makers Mark, Four Roses.

Being new to it and having tried only five or so I feel like I’m starting to develop certain likes. It will be interesting to see how we all enjoy and rate each bourbon when we’re tasting them blind without knowing the prices or looking at the fancy bottles.

I’m open to suggestions.
