I have purchased a few items so far. I got a nice carving knife at the Costco Business Center. Have never had one - big gap in my knife collection. Haven't BBQ'd anything to try it out with yet, so I totally used the wrong tool for the job and used it to slice pepperoni for pizza the other night. Yeah, a bit like taking a tank to a duel, but I tell you what - I've never been able to slice pepperoni so thin and clean ever before!
A bit more was spent at the "regular" Costco on some Single Malt Scotch Whisky that I haven't tried before. I've been moving in the single malt direction in my drinking preferences - a wee dram (OK, a bit larger than that) or two are quite welcomed in the evening.
I'd say that's a good start!
- Knife is great
- Oban 14 year old is on the stronger side, but not too strong
- Singleton 12 year old is mild, maybe too mild. But good. Hoped for more after memories of first tasting this at a distillery in Scotland (not the distillery this bottle came from)
- Lagavulin 16 year old is too strong and peaty for my tastes. But great for others from what I've read
Check back here for reviews of various bottles (full disclosure - I'm no expert!) as I build up, and then drink down, my collection.
And hopefully I'll get that smoker fired up here again real soon as well!
