Went to our favorite local hotel bar this weekend for a late night drink. My wife had her usual champagne and I went for a Basil Hayden with one ice cube. Good way to end the night.
I recently had the Kah Extra Anejo. Really awesome, but frightfully expensive. Good thing my other half sprang for the bottle...

A little bit of Patron Anejo this evening.
Port Royal Gold Aged in Oak Jamaican Rum, with 2 ice cubes, sitting on my veranda in Negril. An excellent sipping rum at $900J ($11US).

Never heard of it. Is it good? How do you take your gin?

I love it up in a martini or straight on the rocks with olives, depending on the gin. North Shore #11, Hendricks, Plymouth, Death's Door. All favorites.
Glenmorangie Nectar d'or; single malt 12 year old aged in sauternes casks. Wonderful single malt, really smooth and i really love the sweet notes.

It's a local organic gin from minnesota I got to try at work. I usually drink my gin on the rocks. I'm a Hendricks fan as well.

I haven't seen that, not even in Scotland. I'm guessing it's fairly expensive. Is it worth the money?

It's the Lagavulin Distillers Edition and it's not that much more expensive than the regular 16y. About 50-60€ if i remember well. Should not be that difficult to find in specialised shops or even in supermarkets with a good range of malts. Maybe the actual version of distillers edition is >1989, but it should be the same Pedro-Ximenez wood style. Definately worth a try at the price. Is it better than the 16y? A matter of taste, i prefer the PX version.
A crapload of tequila later as the day of our Die de los Muertos party has arrived. We'll have the Kah line-up of Blanco, Reposado, Anejo and Extra Anejo to taste. Also some Anejos from Don Julio and Patron.

Thanks. I'll look or it, but I've found the Lagavulin 16 at $44.
Ugh - $120 at the local monopoly.
Renegade Rum Company Don Jose Panama Rum 1997.. Produced by Murray McDavid at Bruichladdich Distillery, Islay. Aged in Port barrels.

One of the best rums I've ever sipped.
Don't drink distilled stuff too much but I have a soft spot for good Cognac. On my last trip to Paris I picked up a bottle of Camus Extraordinaire. Doesn't look like it's available in the states, so I'm going to have to get another bottle next time I'm there. It's very nice.

And I'll be at a Scot's house tonight. I'm sure he'll serve up a delicious single malt.
J. Walker Blue. Finishing off a long-nursed bottle. It's been a long, strange day.

Here's to a better tomorrow!
On the subject of long nursed bottles, you have company.

I am down to the last shot of Old Grand-Dad bourbon (100 proof). Roasted nuts, marmalade, pepper and spice; it has served me well over many a Manhattan. One the list of "what to buy" on my next US trip.
