About our drink:

Jameson 18 year – A blend of whiskies aged in American bourbon barrels and European oak casks, before finally being finished in first fill bourbon barrels, this whiskey earned a score of 95 points from Wine Enthusiast.

Tasting Notes: Nose opens with spicy oak and toffee, which is followed by more toffee and fudge notes on the palate, as well as subtle hints of sherry. The bourbon cask finishing leads to a smooth, vanilla finish, brightened by previous notes of toffee and caramel.

Fortitude: American Resilience in the Era of Outrage by Dan Crenshaw

FORTITUDE is a no-nonsense advice book for finding the strength to deal with everything from menial daily frustrations to truly difficult challenges. More than that, it is a roadmap for a more resilient American culture. With meditations on perseverance, failure, and finding much-needed heroes, the book is the antidote for a prevailing “safety culture” of trigger warnings and safe spaces. Interspersed with lessons from history and psychology is Crenshaw’s own story of how an average American kid from the Houston suburbs went from war zones to the halls of Congress — and managed to navigate his path with a sense of humor and an even greater sense that, no matter what anyone else around us says or does, we are in control of our own destiny.
