Any interesting gifts for Christmas this year?

Got some jade statues from my parents for my office desk .

Carved from a single piece of jade. Each piece on the inside freely moves.

Umm slippers, socks, Amazon vouchers, hoodie, t shirts, perfecdraw!, Shirt, set of bed sheets.

 

Funny thing is now I have 2 perfecdraw because I bought my BIL one for Xmas too so I picked one up for myself. He did the same thing so now we both have two! Lol.

A bigger drone. If you are a kid at heart, don't buy a drone. You'll become an addict and want more and more and expensive ones. 

Wife got me a nice cutter and a slick single cigar ashtray made out of wood. She also got me a gift card to the local smoke shop. I didn't even know the shop offered gift cards. Winner!

I received as gifts and purchased for myself a lot of bourbon and scotch. I'll be home sunday to post up the final haul all together. Here's a teaser. 5fe94860bb477a169089ac9bbcf26cbd.jpg2b101a92a528d0267a5b931f9680d5db.jpg729765cf663a9e18b3d3024ffe7f264a.jpgce7a18e442438a0c068bf69cb6263555.jpg

My favorite gift that we got was cancelled port calls and a month extension tacked onto this current deployment.

My wife opened a few gifts for me and sent pictures, I still have a bunch of gifts at home waiting for me to get there. What she opened was a new Bubinga bottomless portafilter and tamp for my espresso machine, and 2 boxes of Crowned Heads Le Careme Belicoso Fino LE 2018 (Top 5 favorite cigar of 2018). Can't fault her for the cigars, they're excellent and she doesn't know the magic of 24:24 to surprise me with Cubans.

 Cheers guys, happy holidays!

Do you follow t8kewrites on instagram? I met him on r/cigars a few years ago. We've done a few cigar/whiskey swaps. I think you'd like his stuff!

I'm not on Instagram unfortunately. I do follow the va/dc/md whiskey reddit forum

How about scotch swap? He has an entire subreddit dedicated to his whiskey reviews and he's got quite the following.

Regardless, I'd be interested to trade some cigars for some whiskeys with you! I've tried loads of scotches but haven't had many bourbons. He made me a huge fan of Four Roses but haven't tried much else.

Excited to add a few bottles to the bar when I get back!

I prefer 4 Rose's Small Batch over the Single Barrel. The fact that it's $25-$30 ,doesn't hurt my feelings either. 

That 130 barrel proof likes interesting.  I picked up a bottle of Elijah Craig Barrelproof last week. Very strong caramel notes which were awesome.  Small sips were key though.

My wife and I agreed not to exchange gifts this year and to reign in our spending since we're planning a vacation in January. Of course, I'm a liar and bought her an expensive pair of shoes she wanted, and today this landed at our door ...

I received the best gift I could have hoped for. My daughter's boyfriend asked for my blessing and permission to marry her. He is a wonderful young man and my daughter loves him very much. I gave him my blessing,  he proposed and she said yes. She is as happy as I have ever seen her. What more could a father want.

Nice to hear kids still have manners. Seems very rare and far between nowadays. Congrats
