Now this person is not a big drinker. In fact I can probably count the times I've seen her drink on one hand. (Although I'm sure it's probably happened a little bit more than that, but still...you get the idea.)
Anyway, as I said yesterday, the weather is not my friend lately and next week I hope to be working hard over at the new house, so, I will not be making that trip any time soon. I'm sorry for that. I know we would have enjoyed our visit and maybe even a little of this gift. Just a little. I kind of love this stuff and I'm not a big whisky drinker either. But...toasted caramel? I'm there.
Now before you go thinking I've misspelled whisky, let me school you a little on that. Black Velvet is Canadian whisky. Canadians spell it W-H-I-S-K-Y. As do the Scotts and the Japanese. Other countries use the familiar W-H-I-S-K-E-Y. My humble opinion is that I should give these distillers the respect of spelling it they way they named it.
But...let's just say you've had a little too much of this wonderfulness and now you can't remember which way which brand is spelled. Well, I can help you out with a little bit of mnemonics (which I could not spell on my own, even in a sober state)...
There ya go....makes the perfect birthday card don't ya think??But I digress....this is a post about some awesome whisky as a birthday gift. Now you might think I should just craft up a cute, clever little package and mail it. Well, I could certainly do that if I thought I would look all cute in an orange jumpsuit or thought that prison chefs get their recipes from pinterest, but I know the first is not true, (I look hideous in orange) and I'm just gonna guess that the second is also not true, but if any of you have any first hand experience with eating prison food and want to dispute that claim, well, keep it to yourself. It is illegal to ship alcohol via the United States Postal Service. In fact, if you are shipping something that is not alcohol, but are using a box that was manufactured to contain alcohol, then you are supposed to "completely remove all logos and labels". Okay, I know I'm guilty of NOT doing that.
Again, I'm off point here.
Black Velvet Toasted Caramel Whisky is the bomb.....even to a person who doesn't drink much (such as the person I purchased this for) so getyasum.
I'm going to hope this wonderful person doesn't count the number of bottles in this picture too carefully because one may be missing soon. I'm pretty sure I look just like Alannah Myles when I drink Black Velvet. Check it out below...
Or I look like this....
As for the recipient of this awesomeness...hang on...it'll get there! (most of it anyway) I love you and you know who you are.
