Found some barrel neighbors! Both are Four Roses recipe OBSQ, from warehouse LE; barrels 36-4U and 36-4I. These are store picks from @carothersws in Franklin TN, and ABC of Alabama. There great, but clearly Justin at Carothers has a gift for picking barrels. His 36-4U is outstanding. 🥃🤤

Totally worth the drive to Kentucky! That was amazing.

Spotted a rare Sphinx moth. It’s like a cross between a hummingbird and a crayfish.
From sailing to failing. After I stopped filming, the boat turned completely upside down and I and to climb up the bottom and pull on the daggerboard to flip it over again. #imonaboat#iphone7plus#waterproof
