I tried Buffalo Trace White Dog once, one sip, and thought I'd jacked up my palate permanently - took 3 days to clear the taste. Reminds me of Zima, but somehow more offputting. Whoever thought to age it in barrels deserves a historical version of the Nobel Prize.

Had some Jura Prophecy the other night. Bottle suggests to the reader that it is heavily peated, but I'm not sure I'd agree. Maybe it is just heavily peated compared to all their other offerings.

Not bad though - an interesting first glass. I'll come back to it in a week or so to see if I find it to be the same experience.

In prep for Memorial day and the summer, i've picked up this for refreshing times
If you enjoy wine and like this grape, you can't beat this for summertime

Think of it like a rosé but made from pinot noir so it has all the flavors that this wine is known for but in a lighter form. It has a nice body despite its appearance. This vineyard makes perhaps the best pinot noir outside of France, imho, and this offering is something Ive never found anywhere else. They release it once a year, and Im fortunate to be able to enjoy

Those Russian River pinots are tough to beat, that's a fact. Noir, Gris, Grigio, all of them.

I'm also a scotch guy.

I would recommend red breast 12 or Jamison black to get started on Irish whiskey and see if you like the flavor profile. I really like green spot or yellow spot a lot but don't think they are typical Irish whiskey flavors. Much more smooth and mellow vs spicy, sweet and strong which is what I look for in a typical Irish whiskey.

I'm sure that is more the age than the whiskey. Angels Envy bourbon is great for the $35 price point. The Rye is much more expensive but I have heard great things... sadly it is also much harder to find.

I have consumed 2 bottles of macallan 25. Bought in 99 and 2000 respectively. They were 325 and 375 each! Now 18 is damn near that high, I got it as low as 70 back then. I drink much cheaper now! I did get some dalmore cigar malt for Christmas.

I couldn’t believe when I found out you can buy a drivable used car for a bottle of 25 now.

I tried a 25yo recently at a relatively wealthy friends place lol... i have never drank a scotch this good in my life. Its extremely hard to describe the taste... its full flavored but still somehow smooth. Albeit like you say the price is nearly 2 grand.

Finished off two days of work on the wife's 335d.... exhaust pressure sensor, turbo outlet hose, brake rotors, pads, sensors, and a flush.
Decided to have some Hawaiian Punch and goose to celebrate being done.

Our go-to lately has been Moscow Mules. Just have to source the ginger beer, that can sometimes be hard to come by in our town. Last time I just bought a 24 to keep us in supply for a while.

I've been making my own ginger syrup lately and using that instead of store-bought ginger beer. I highly recommend trying it yourself. I use Greg Seider's recipe.

I'll look that up, thanks. Do you still use some other sort of beer to dilute or how do you prepare your Mules?

Edit: Ah, I see - club soda. Looked it up. Thanks.

Just sobered up and couldn't find this, thought the Mods finally killed it. Just in time finding it too - I was about 5 minutes from swearing off booze altogether and cleaning up my life.

I think this calls for a new bottle to celebrate - time to break open the case of Corryvrecken
