Schramms ruined me from anything else. There are some highly rated NH meads those to the north of me. A good meadery tap room not too far also. I have a bag of wild blueberries I keep on meaning to ferment

This. Schramms is why I started liking mead, and is why I have been ruined from meaderies around me. The Bruery has them periodically as a “guest brewer” - I need to stock back up.

I’ve had 5 gallons on mead sitting In my basement for about 7 years that I’ve yet to bottle. I should probably smarten up and do it.

I don't know why but anything shipped to my state is usually restricted. Especially the Midwest. However they somehow are my connection. Plus a lot of free shipping. Their Honeyberry just leap frogged all others I've had. Now I have Honeyberries growing in my woods. Hopeful for fruit this year.

Same. I just don’t like the finish of mine. It has a bit too much bite (tartaric acid) on the back end. Have been slowly trying to mellow it out over the years.

mine is due to laziness. Wine bottles and all. I’m not actively brewing, just drinking lately, so it makes it even harder.

Not mead, but I found some 2014 RIS in 750's in my basement while cleaning it out. Yum!

are we drinking Irish whiskey in this FotD?
I could have taken a picture like that - the cabinets are all empty because the painter is coming today. What a mess! I notice that's not all Irish Whiskey though, sir. :) I had s Lot B and drank it. It was a gateway drug for me (as @Thorrak will attest.) I have to slim my collection down to the essentials so we can move.

Forgive the Hijack but can you tell me where you bought the WL Wellers? One of my favorite bourbons but very hard to find anymore, last bottle I found was in Arkansas this summer but only could buy one.
Michigan. If you are out of the South East corner things last slightly longer on the shelf.

Mine was supposed to deliver yesterday but thinking it didn't because it's an office not open on Saturday?
