    There are some wonderful cocktails you can make with this like the Jack Rose or sours sweetened by the judicious use of maple syrup. Great for fall.

    Yes, there are worse ways to spend 50 bucks.

  6. Just found a bottle of Glen Moray 18 locally & have it reserved for my pickup. It's rare to find any Glen Moray around here & when you do it's always the 12 yr old. Hoping he discovers another bottle or two in the back room before I get there.

    Zwischen Fernweh und Heimweh, das bin ich.

    I also like the logo of that bourbon; a compass with an ancient Futhark in the middle. Brilliant!

    Had one rebate sticker left in the supermarket today and found this little cheapo to put it on.

    By the way, I could imagine that this above Limousin Rye will get a nice dark chocolate/coffee edge from that European oak. Sounds pretty interesting!

    Just discovered and bought at Sam's Club a 1.75L French (or so they say) vodka. Don't have a clue how it's gonna taste but the price was right LOL, only $19. Think I'll try some in a Bloody Mary first before a vodka martini (stirred not shaken)

    However it may have actually been run thru an old '41 Ford radiator up some holler in East Tennessee.

  14. I'm very much a rum guy. It goes so well with a cigar. And I just bought a bottle of this:

  16. I was gifted these for Christmas. Looking forward to sampling each one (this is my second “sampling” of the Limousin Rye).

    Oh wow! I can resist anything, except temptation! My lovely lady, under strict orders to tell Santa to leave the spirits in his sack, must have got word through. Problem is, I said nothing about sweet wines. Such wines are called fortified and they have a cunning disguise. A sweetness that creates a "moorish" effect, not that I need help in having more, then you get a fuzzy effect, I must remember to tell Santa that fortified wines are off limits next year.
