New Arrivals and Upcoming Events at Miner’s Delight Inn in Atlantic City, Wyo. – Whisky News

New arrivals and upcoming events at Miner’s Delight Inn in Atlantic City, Wyo.

Tell ‘em you got 86’d at the Two-bit Cowboy Saloon.

Etymology of the term 86’d is unclear. Generally the term relates to getting rid of something (did the mob in Vegas really take people eight miles out of town and put them six feet under?) or banning a person from a place, usually a bar. In the latter case could anything be worse than being banned from a two-bit bar?

Tongue in cheek, Barbara and Bob Townsend, purveyors of single malt Scotch whisky, intend to further confuse and add to the term’s contemporary development. To them it means customers of the saloon my choice from 86 single malt Scotch whiskies,Wyoming’s best selection.

With their latest delivery the Townsend’s added the 86th malt to the backbar. Single malt whiskies included in the delivery are Auchentoshan Valinch 2012, Balblair 2001 vintage, and Longrow 14 year old Burgundy Cask. Their order also contained Batch 10 of Wyoming Whiskey Small Batch Bourbon and Blackwood’s Small Batch Gin, the botanicals for which are hand cut on Scotland’s Shetland Islands.

The inn hosts two single malt tastings each month. For March 2013 those will be …
