What are day rates like these days for CD-level creatives with a handful of awards under their belt.
If you could be somewhat specific, that'd be good. I'm trying to crunch numbers and see how feasible it is.
Consistently billing 190-200 hours per month but being told it's not enough. Firm average is about 165 but my group expects more of us. Anyone have tips for billing more/more efficiently? 200 feels like a struggle- not sure how people hit 250+. 2nd year lit associate if that helps!
Recently started working with a new client, and it feels like they are constantly looking for reporting that is “after the fact”, vs using it to inform new business decisions prior to them being made. The client has an appetite to better use their data though - I am looking for any ideas and best practices to transition from reporting to data that helps build a roadmap. TYIA!

Any liquor store recommendations for jersey city/NJ suburbs? I’m trying to find Michter 10 at a not so crazy price.
Just tried Heaven’s Door Bourbon…wow…outstanding. Heard it is a partnership between the founder of Angels Envy and Bob Dylan. Check it out.
Due to Publicis Sapient's post below, I broke out the Talisker Storm. It's 10pm, but who cares? Good stuff. Haven't had in a while.
I have an idea for a live session. What if we have people recommend their favorite brands. We purchase them and then discuss? It could be like a book club but for liquor. At the close of each session we can select the next top 3 recommendations and so on and so forth? 🥃
My lovely wife got me a bottle of Talisker 18 for my first Father’s Day. I’ve always loved the 10 year, but first impressions of the 18 are superb.
If you could blow big money on one bottle with no consequences...which would it be? For me it's this bad boy. The 62-year-old Macallan Lalique single malt. Average price is around 160k, but I'd love to have something like that in my collection.
Found out about a book “Pappyland: A Story of Family, Fine Bourbon, and the Things That Last” that just came out today. It’s about Julian Van Winkle III and how he’s working to preserve the family legacy. I’m definitely picking this one up.
I am graduating this weekend from school(it’s masters degree and I’m 30’years old) and I am looking to celebrate the weekend with an amazing scotch. Don’t have a preference with the type. Looking for something within $500. TIA

Aside from the marketing aspect of “it’s what the market is willing to pay”, you’re looking at super-limited production runs. You’re paying for the opportunity cost of retooling, logistics around small farming (barley from the island), unique peat usage and malting ratios (most distillers on Islay order their malt ratio in bulk from the central granary), specific barrels, etc.
Remember it’s an experimental line and we’re lucky enough to even be able to get it in the states. There’s usually 5-6 different formulations in each year, and that’s on top of what the distillery is turning out for the normal Bruiladdich ranges.
(Plus the bottles are gorgeous)
There’s also unpeated versions - usually of the Islay barley (white bottle) - so definitely check the descriptions and tasting notes for any given year and variant.
Just got the 9.2, best whiskey I had so far
Lore is fun too!
I think the success of Octomore is going to lead to a different approach to Scotch production. It’s pulling the industry more in an experimental craft direction, focusing on the locale and unique characteristics rather than volume. I think it will be a net positive for quality and the industry will become more wine-like in the overall approach, but it will mean even higher prices and lower availability than we see today.
