I did get my fair share. Cool


Remy is not my favourite brand, ... I understand


but this Louis XIII must be a fantastic experience.


It was indeed, and fun to see all the jockeying for the bottle to take home. Smile

Luxury Baccarat cristal caraffe. Did you get the bottle? I'd refill with some el-cheapo v.s. and laugh at the many oh's and ah's given to that special cognac Wink

Here's one bottle i'd like to have in my collection:

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.
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.
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.

I do this all the time Board-O...I used 3 and 4 different single malts before...and yes..I dont admit too often but it is quite tasty! I use a little dab of water as well...helps bring the flavors out more IMO.

Tonight: Hendrix Gin Martini with 2 olives.

Which year are you drinking? Always interested in "discount" single malts.


Just the 12 year. I found it a couple years ago at a local chain for like $37 and thought what the heck, then saw it was from Dewar's and got curious. I'm not sure if Dewar's has always owned it or if it was a purchase like Guinness and Smithwicks, and honestly haven't done the research to find out. The are others I prefer but for the price I always have some on hand.
Never been much of a tequila drinker and my BIL set out to change that last week:
Cuervo de la Familia *
Corralejo Reposado
1921 Reserva Especial Single Barrel*
Corazon Anejo
Gran Patron Platinum
Milagro Romance Reserve Anejo
Legenda del Milagro Reserve Reposado
Clase Azul Reposado*
*My personal favorites... Been a scotch and bourbon guy, but might start drinking some more tequila.

TPE, I never was either until visiting two Tequila houses a little over a year ago wheen in Mexico. I love the stuff now. If you like a little more barrel influence, I reccomend Herradura Anejo. About $45 in my market. Also, I think Espolon is a fantastic value Reposado under $20.

reading your post i managed to get drunk, contract an STD, throw up all over my keyboard, develop severe irritability towards light (both natural and artificial), and adopt a family of ferrets in need of rescue.

thanks.

I picked up my Lot 'B' (the 12 year) and a bottle of the pappy's 20 year last night. I am down to the bottom of the 20 and 23 that i bought last year so this was good timing. super small quantities this year all around, direct from the distillery. places that usually get 3-6 bottles are getting 1.

20 year is my favorite and the 12 'lot b' is the best qpr out there imo.

enjoy!

Yeah I got the Lot B as well. Should be getting my hands on it next Thursday. Pretty excited. Maybe next year I'll spring for the 20yr.

Very nice list.

I have never had a "bad experience" with tequila, but there was a time that the mere smell of it nearly made me... Ack However, I have learned to really enjoy fine tequila over the past few years; about the same amount of time that I have been enjoying wine. Smile
