How was that Dominus? The 1992 is the best I've ever had.


Just one more sip.

Tonight with assorted appies and spicy Thai-style salmon and prawn soup:

- NV Piper-Heidsieck Brut (375 ml), very pleasant
- 2002 Trimbach Gewurztraminer Vendanges Tardives, excellent, sweet and spicy, pear, mineral, sage, very long finish, still on the young side

Cheers!

2009 Bastide de Beauvert (les Vignoble Foncalieu) Cotes du Rhone.--mixed berry compote on the nose. Nice youthful fruit with balanced tannins. Very nice bottle for the price (most of the wine went into the braised beef ribs, however. Winner
2003 Vieux Telegraphe CdP La Crau. -- nice aromatic nose and beautiful structure. Still needs time, though.
2003 Chateau Pavie St. Emilion. Wow! actually seems open for business, but obviously still quite young.
Glenfiddich 30 year old. -- yummy
Rare Malts Selection Glen Ord 23 year old (cask strength) -- also yummy. And went well with the meteor shower tonight.
Elijah Craig (private) Opperman barrel #3 "Cigar Bourbon" -- nice and spicy. A perfect way to finish my San Christobal Habana.


Stay thirsty my friends.

Redhawk, that sounds like a heck of an evening. I'm predicting a bit of dehydration and a headache for you this morning, though!

What did you drink with the short ribs? Would think both the VT and Pavie would be pleasant...little cold up in MI for a cigar no? Nice pairing there as well Cool

To celebrate 12/12/12 all bottles started with 1 and ended with 2. Thanks to Gman for the tip.

Board-O, I thought the Dominus was very good just not great which I have thought in the past.
All in all, a great night of debauchery.

It was an informal dinner, so we basically finished the bottle of VT, and started on the decanter of Pavie mid-meal. Both went very well with the ribs. I would say that the Pavie is a flashier wine that really stands on its own, not necessarily needing any food to pair with it. The VT is still a little tight, but it probably paired better with the meal, over all.

Yes, it was cold, as you would expect a clear Michigan night in mid-december to be. So you wear a coat and a hat, and put a splash of room temp water in the Scotch instead of an ice cube, and enjoy it as it cools down. Unfortunately we don't have a hot tub here in Saginaw, as that is perhaps the better way to enjoy cigars and Scotch in the winter.


Stay thirsty my friends.

I foresaw the potential problem, and drank lots of water last night! No problem today, although I'm off work and could sleep in a little. Smile

Yup...I look the "stay puff marshmellow man" up here in the winter puffing on a cigar...I've yet to find a pair of gloves that are warm enough, yet thin enough to hold the cigar comfortably.

By the way....I do the same with my scotch/bourbon....drink as it cools Cool

Actually, it wasn't so cold that I needed gloves last night. Besides, a bare hand helps to keep the whiskey from getting too cold.

Marcb, where are you located?
