Decided to have something a little different. Probably one of the more "In your face" Pinot's I've had. Was our 16th anniversary so a 16 yo wine seemed appropriate. This one has aged really well.

Strange stuff: Kona Brewery Lemongrass Luau - local shop had a Kona Brewery Promotion today that I missed, but their beers were on sale and for sentimental reasons I had to get a few. This one has lemongrass and ginger in it. Very strange if you think of it as a beer, but a refreshing summer beverage otherwise. That said, their Castaway IPA is still my favorite.

Same is true for the other beer I had tonight: Conshohocken Brewing Company Blood Money - Blood Orange IPA. Never thought I would like that but it is a nice and refreshing local brew, they had problems keeping up with the demand because other people seem to like it also.

Finding better sake is like finding out there is more to tequila than drinking Jose Cuervo shots while playing stupid drinking games at frat parties.

As much as I enjoy Ready Set Go, I never could get into Killer Mike's style of music and album profile. So I didn't really follow his career as I should have. Don't remember hearing about Run the Jewels, or maybe I forgot on purpose, but if a fellow Doom fan recommends, I must at least give their sound a chance.

It's similar to Murs. His first few albums were terrible until he hooked up with 9th Wonder and started putting out quality material.

They sold the 1516 at a fairly small liquor store next to my house, I was surprised. If I want some unusal stuff I go to a place that has over 1500 different brews. I wonder how old some of the more obscure ones are, there's definitely dust on some LOL

Oui évidemment, but the auto-correct killed it. Wines from Bourgogne are my favourite ones: not too much wood, pierre-a-fusil. I love the Irancy, in a lighter touch. Unfortunately, since I live in Germany, it is hard/expensive to refurbish my cellar. Each time I go to France, I come back with a box. But I miss my going around from a wine maker to another.

EDIT: fantastic mug

Glad you like it. Not too many people know about Redbreast. The ABC stores in NC only sell the 12 YO. I'm going to see if they can get me some barrel strength. Nothing worse that diluted 80 proof liquor. I try not to but anything that isn't barrel strength.

11-09-2016, 01:27 PM
he means rare breed, it is strong as hell but has twice the flavor of 101. once you get used to barrel strength stuff, it's hard to go back to anything that is 'normal' strength, haha.

wild turkey used to be really popular, millenials these days have no idea. they all go for the overly sweet junk to mix in their cocktails.

DamageInc
11-09-2016, 01:46 PM
I've had Wild Turkey Rare Breed before and while it was better, it is nearly twice the price of 101 here. Clocks in at 50-60 euros per bottle.

I don't mind paying a high price for good whiskey (several bottles of Pappy in my cabinet can attest to that fact), but I think that's too steep for a bottle of Wild Turkey. At that price level, I'd rather move across the pond get a Lagavulin 16 or Dalwhinnie 15.

Buffalo Trace releases are generally of very good quality. Their Antique collection releases are fantastic, but are snatched up very very quickly. It's getting harder and harder to get really good drinking bourbon here in the EU. Pretty much the only really good barrel-proof bottle that is regularly available is Blanton's Gold. Scotch prices are also going up, so I'm stockpiling my favorite bottles like some doomsday prepper.

If your stock piling for the future, the Aultmore 12 & Kilkerran 12 are both pretty decent drams. The Aultmore is around 55.00 USD & Kilkerran is @ 65.00 USD

just finished a glass of lot 40; it's pretty good, yeah not remarkable but quite solid and worth its asking price. it drinks more like a smooth full bodied bourbon than a rye though. i bet if it were barrel strength it would be DAMN good.

Not being a high dollar spirit drinker normally, I chanced on a bottle of Evan Williams given the reviews but am sorely disappointed. Bulleit is cheaper and actually tastes better in some respects to me. Buffalo Trace is still my favorite in this price bracket. Any similar suggestions in next price bracket?

Looking to pick up some Sherry and Jenever to try. I'm a fan of unfashionable spirits.

Tried some Nikka coffey grain whisky tonight. Not much of a connoisseur and I tend to gravitate more toward bourbon than scotch, whereas Japnese whiskies tend to resemble the latter category in terms of being more smokey/peaty. But this one seemed much more "American," wouldn't have been entirely out of place in a line-up from Kentucky.

picked up pendleton 1910 rye (100% canadian rye, aged 12years, sounded interesting)
and oh man this stuff is great!! quite affordable too, what a hidden gem. it tastes 'fun' yet very smooth, not rough like you would expect a rye. this blows lot 40 rye out of the water in its price range. i will go so far as to say this is the easiest to drink whiskey i've ever tried. will most likely be my daily sipper.

also got cigar city invasion pale ale along with a glass shaped like a bottle with the top cut off.

and of course anything brooklyn brewery makes is good. it's getting really frigging hot down here in florida so during this season it's summer ales all the time for me.

It's the biggest tulip I have, the Riedel Grand Cru Burgundy. It so crazy big that it can hold over a liter of fluid. Allows a wonderful nose and for the wine/beer to really breathe. I had the opportunity to buy a case of the 3 Fonteinen Golden Blend, but I thought they were a bit on the pricey side so I only got one. That was five years ago. Now they are more expensive and I'm regretting not buying two cases.

Yes the devil really is in the details. No point in aging a beer for half a decade and then pouring it into a mug.
