Yes it does. That's ice's defining characteristic.

Did a side-by-side of Macallan 18 and Lagavulin 16 tonight (no wine). The honey and smooth Macallan were excellent, but I slightly prefer the bite of the Lagavulin.


Just one more sip.

I tried Maker's Mark's new "46" bourbon tonight. It was quite good, maybe a little more complex than the standard Maker's.

Herrudura Anejo Tequila. As an aside, Casa Herrudura is a great old property to visit if you find yourself in Jalisco State for Tequila tours.

Bought a Bunnahabhain 18 about a week agaoi and have taken only a small taste, but I like it a lot. It's a bit smoother than the 12, which is not necessarily a plus for me with an Islay, but the total package is stunning.


Just one more sip.

He must let us draw the water from the well. Certainly he can present a bill for such services; after all... we are not Communists.

I've been going through a bottle of Diplomatico 12 Year Reserva Exclusiva Rum lately. To this day, the best liquor I've ever tasted.

I've been sipping on the following, lately:

Pappy Van Winkle 12yr
Templeton Rye

At The Publican I had a taste of the Pappy Van Winkle 20yr. It was unbelievable!

Berno, that Pappy 20 is pretty great stuff. Have you tried the 23? I haven't but would love a dram. From what I've heard, it's the Romanee-Conti of bourbons.

Wow, that sounds like a nice bottle. One of my favourite distilleries. Are you a Lowland fan?

that calls for a Glengoyne 10y (allthough not Lowlands, it's unpeated Lowland style. Situated near Glasgow, on the fringe between Lowlands and Highlands)

I have not, there's a bottle left in my store. It's quite tempting, but I like the 12 year enough to keep me satisfied.
