Diesel Unlimited - 12/11/2010

Posted: Monday, December 13, 2010

Diesel Unlimited, d,7, Churchill 7x58.  Big new Diesel, but very disappointing.  Harsh and tarry off the light, stayed pretty harsh throughout, finally mellowing a bit a the end.  This was smoked 5 days off the truck, and is very young, may need a bit of time aging.  All in all a poor smoke considering the excellent Diesel Unholy Cocktail's excellence.

Paired with 2007 Londer Dry Gewürztraminer.  An excellent dry white wine!

59 degrees on a cold damp afternoon.

    Thanks, you just saved me some money for now. I've been sorely tempted to buy some of these, but have paused solely because of the ring gauge (a little too large for my comfort). Sorry to hear the flavor doesn't at all resemble the Unholy Cocktail.

    As for the Highland Park 12, I'd have to believe your Costco price would be a bargain. It's around $40-$45 here and worth every penny. Surprisingly complex for that age and cost.
