Grey Goose VX Review

In the Cognac world VS means Very special and XO means Extra Old, so Grey Goose VX is Very Extra!
The world’s best tasting French wheat vodka masterfully finished with a hint of precious Cognac grapes from France’s Champagne region. I was encouraged to try it chilled neat or on the rocks. It tried it chilled neat then with a couple ice cubes and I have to say it is amazing chilled neat. I tasted fruit, dried fruit, some citrus and sweet. I look forward making a Grey Goose VX martini stirred with a lemon twist, it could very well be my new cocktail. The bottle is beautiful, it comes in an elegant gift box when you open it you see a very well designed impressive decanter. Grey Goose VX, what Grey Goose calls vodka exceptionnelle finished with a hint of precious cognac, also printed on the bottle “exclusive edition” so stock up. It is sold at fine retailers and restaurants nationwide, with a retail price of $75.00/750 ml; it goes quick so I would encourage you to buy two at a time, Santé.

Samuel Adams Utopias Review

American Strong Ale or Barleywine what is Utopias? It is an extraordinary brew that is the result of complex and carefully timed brewing, it is a blend of batches, some having been aged more than 20 years in a variety of woods. The Utopias 2013 was aged in casks from Buffalo Trace Distillery and eight-year-old Port barrels from Portugal. Then blended with a touch of Kosmic Mother Funk (KMF), a Belgian-style ale barrel-aged for at least nine months (and up to two years) in Hungarian oak tuns, that is some information I found on it, now for my opinion.

This beer is un-carbonated and high in ABV, so you can open it and drink it over time, it will just get better with age (don’t store this bottle in the refrigerator a cool dark place is fine). I was told serve at room temperature (about 69 degrees Fahrenheit).

Jim Koch from Samuel Adams says that 2013 Utopias is Limited so don’t pour it like a beer pour small 2 ounce pours in smaller glasses a little goes a long way.

Proof 54 or 27% ABV

Visual – if you swirl it in a glass you see legs, very long legs, color is mahogany/reddish

Aroma – Earthy

Taste – Dark fruits, molasses, sherry like, prunes, berry, cherry, plums, orange, candy, maple, barley, caramel, butterscotch with a very dry finish on the end like an aged Sherry. It is like a liqueur as it warms you, no burn, consistency is thick it covers your mouth.

If you can find it, buy it and drink it, personally think it is worth the price. But good luck finding it, less than 15,000 bottles were brewed. And thirteen states prohibit its sale because its alcohol content exceeds the legal limit for beer, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont and Washington. I live in California I went to many stores to track it down and K&L Wine in Hollywood was out of it yet they were the ones that helped me find a store that had it, thank you K&L for all your help. I did pay $299.99, I know it is a lot yet it was their last bottle and if they had another one I would buy it tomorrow.

Sticky Bumps Review

I use Sticky Bumps Surf Wax because I like the smell. This is not a surf wax review I just wanted to write in why I use Sticky Bumps, it works well, goes on easy, and it smells really good. All winter I have been using Sticky Bumps Cool Surf Wax and loving it.
Some Facts about Sticky Bumps, Cool Surfboard Wax is for use in water 58º- 68º F (14º-19ºC). Sticky Bumps Surf Wax is an all-natural non-toxic wax. Eco Friendly, Sticky Bumps was the first surf wax to stop using paraffin-based waxes. Sticky Bumps is long lasting and easy to apply formula. Rub it on nose to tail, rail to rail. The wax weight is over 85 grams. Sticky Bumps surf wax has been around since 1972.
I personally over wax my boards, so I use a lot of wax, and it lasts and sticks good. It is also a surf wax that lasts a while you don’t have to constantly reapply, I use the same wax, as it just stays put, no need to mess with it. Long lasting and easy to apply what more could you want.

Price is $2.00 – $3.00, worth every cent/sent!

Beats Pill 2.0 by Dr. Dre Review

Small but Loud, Do You Know, Destroy Bad Sound Respect The Music, Just What the Doctor Ordered, Right, Fierce… the advertisements are everywhere, this small, sexy, portable speaker is packed with sound quality and is a must have for everyone.

Small Size, Big Sound. The compact size is a bit deceiving your neighbors will hear it, if you are rockin in the back yard. Beats Pill is said to produce powerful sound, soaring highs and deep, booming bass. I think because it’s portable, you can have your music close by and you don’t need it so loud.

Portable, the Beats Pill got me on portability. It is lightweight design is small enough to go anywhere, the small travel case makes it easy to pack. The charge lasts a long time, I have listened to music for over seven hours, and it take a short time to recharge. If your phone is low on battery power, plug it in on the bottom to charge. The Beats Pill has Bluetooth capability an internal microphone, you can conference call, the mic input is just below the sync button.

Pairing the Beats Pill is easy, I have had so much trouble in the past with other Bluetooth speakers. It’s easy, tap your phone to your Beats Pill and you create an instant connection or hold down the Beats Pill logo for three seconds and it will pair with your devise. Sync two Beats Pills by tapping them together to play the same song on both. If you tap the Beats Pills together twice you get your music in stereo, one Beats Pill will be left output and the other will be right output. You can change tracks and adjust volume on whatever you sync, from up to thirty feet away.

Accessories, there are a bunch a few of the more popular ones are, Beats Pill Character, Beats Pill Sleeve and the Beats Pill Bike Mount.

Photos will display front, Beats Pill button that will light up in red when you power it on and the four speakers. Back, line out, line in, Bluetooth indicator, power button, micro USB port and NFC (Near Field Communications) button and volume up/down buttons. Bottom, USB phone charger.

For $199.00 it’s well worth it, a premium well made product. I highly recommend it! Bback
