Any Bourbon drinkers? There is nothing I won't try, and for whatever reason in this life I just don't like scotch. I've tried, and have many bottles of, some very fine and rare scotches, because that's what my friends ask for. But for me bourbon is the drink.....who knows....maybe because I spent so many years as a kid picking corn.......
For someone living in Bourbon country, I do not drink much Bourbon at all, only in winter if I do.

Magic Hat Elder Betty tonight.

Couple of Kentucky Mules with Knob Creek 9 year with late breakfast. Ommegang Three Philosophers and Bill Evans' album Interplay right now. I found out yesterday that I won't be getting any work for about two months, it is oddly freeing. Job search begins after a few more good drinks.

More of the standard, Sierra Nevada Torpedo. I've probably drank more of this beer than any other beer. It helps that I can get it for about $7.50 a six pack. Also, the craft beer selection sucks in Hawaii. That being said, Sierra Nevada has been brewing up some awesome beers lately. Big foot comes in a close second, when it's in season.

As a former brewer I can tell you that no one puts rice into beer to improve flavor...it's always about cost control. Ditto corn.

American saki perhaps? I've had saki that has blown my mind with the amount of citrus undertones and nuances of flavor, which is made with rice(starches). Could this possibly be their goal? Market it as beer because obviously that is what sells in this country, but combine the two seeing how the brew prosscess is very similar? I'm going to have to check it out for myself

Well, the rice used in saki is heavily modified before brewing (they grind it somehow, to get to the kernel)....rice used in beer typically doesnt have that processing as they are trying to save money instead of wasting it :bigeek:

Also, i am not sure what kind of yeast is used for saki, but i think its not beer yeast so the flavor profilenwould be very different.

Of course, they might want you to think that it will be subtle like good saki!

Sorry to take it away from your favorite beers and ales, but I love wine and followed some advice by none other than Robert Parker and splurged tonight on a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, 2009, from Les Callioux, producer Andre Brunel. I'm not even gonna tell you how much I paid for the bottle, but I decided to break it out with a pan-seared skirt steak and simple reduction sauce made with the same wine. Steak was great, wine sucked. Tannic, not really ready to drink but it probably never would be. I try not to make too much of his numbers but Parker gave it a 92 and I just don't get it. Just couldn't find the fruit or the pleasure in it. . . . Back to my favorite everyday red, Marietta Cellars Old Vine Red.

I just got back from a trip to the north of Italy and, in addition to paying a visit to Otzi the ice man mummy in Bolzano, tried to drink as much riesling as I could from the place that does it best (more or less, since Austria is around the corner). They're about half the price or less over there.

Wait - does that mean you think Austrian rieslings are better than the Germans? ;) Actually, I like both, grew up with dry German rieslings, ventured a bit into the off-dry and sweet world, but my favorites usually are still nice dry ones. And the Austrians have really done an excellent job with those over the past 2 decades (as hard as it is to admit Austrians doing anything well ;) ). Reminds me, I am out of Gruener Veltliner which, interestingly, is easier to get here than any dry riesling.

Passed on the Doenhoff again, feeling more like beer tonight, so it's Idiot IPA for me right now. First time I had it, very hoppy, almost overpoweringly (is that a word?) so.

Ken, I never was sure what serving size that referred to. The times where I could have 7 pints are also long behind me...

As this is Korea, tonight we were are a BBQ (beef + all the seasonal side dishes) and the drink was 막걸리 (usually written as makkoli or magkeolli), a Korean rice brew. It's great and costs about $1 USD per 750ml bottle, or usually $3 in a restaurant. http://kr.promotion.yahoo.com/korea100sparkles/food_mak.html?intl=sg ... Back home now, I'm having 매실주 (maeshil ju), the less sweet Korean version of Japanese 梅酒 (umeshu) or plum wine. Love this stuff too, and as a matter of fact I've made a batch that supposedly should be ready around Christmas. I'm having the 매실주 with ice and fizzy water - just like 'umeshu soda' which you always find in Japanese izakayas. Check http://www.myepikorean.com/2008/05/korean-green-plum-liquor-maesil-ju.html

I doubt makkoli is available at all in the US, if that's where you live, while I'm sure Japanese umeshu is. Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried these drinks?

I went to the brewpub a couple of weeks ago and got a bottle of their whiskey and gin. The whiskey is pretty decent, haven't tried the gin yet. Obviously all the beers are grand.

That 3 Floyds glass reminded me that I've always wanted to try a Three Floyds Dark Lord (ideally one of the barrel-aged ones.) A shame they're basically impossible to get in Ontario.

Had a very special get together today at the restaurant. A local Jewish Doctor was retiring after 50 years in practice, so he and his 4 partners opened up a bottle of Scotch that was 50yrs old and shared it with me. Dalmore 50 year old, bottled in 1978 and was laid down in the 1920's and it is believed that they even put some 19th century vintages in there. I about shat myself when the Doctor winked at me and said "would you believe it only cost $25,000 a bottle." Not a typo. I made it last and he laughed at me and told me to pour another. I like rich people sometimes. It was amazing!

O.k., I lied. Was at a conference reception tonight where I accepted a glass of free 'punch', a brackish brown concoction with a piece of pineapple in it. Had to cleanse my palate with two semi-cold Heinekens for $8 a pop, plus tip of course. Finally settling in at home with a Sam Adams Third Voyage Double IPA. I like that one, first time I had it. Nice and hoppy but not totally in your face, still a bit of sweetness to it which is not usually my thing but it does give it a nice balance. It's not a Rogue but perfectly drinkable.

My two cents, hope I don't offend.

Save your money. Whiskey stones are a funky paradoxical gimmick designed to appeal to an extremely niche hobbyist market, particularly people who fancy themselves whiskey connoisseurs but who aren't all that versed in their whiskeys. Realistically, chilling your whiskey in the first place does more damage to the "smokey, savory nuances" than an ice cube's volume of water ever could. That is to say, if you aren't so terribly fussy about all the subtleties in your whiskey that you honestly enjoy it cold, how much are you really gaining by buying and maintaining and looking after some chunks of soapstone to keep 'em that way, when a few ice cubes will do the same with comparatively minimal impact? Even if you want it cold and you don't want to "dilute" it--and some would argue that a splash of room temperature water in a good glass of whiskey only enhances the flavor--then save the money and the fuss, and just keep the glass chilled or the whiskey chilled in the first place.

I'm with jack on this one. Chilling it will dull the subtleties on the mid palate. A little water tones down the 'booze burn' and allows those aforementioned subtleties to shine a little brighter.

I also agree when it comes to single malts etc. But, strangely enough, I like my (usually high proof) bourbons on the rocks with a more generous splash of water. Makes it a totally different drink compared to room temperature straight up, but I like it. I have to admit to also liking mint juleps, but that's as far as I go with mixing whiskies... Considering that I either cool it down or mix it with mint, maybe I just don't like bourbon :)

I had this at a wine tasting last week and thought it was decent, but everything starts tasting the same after 2 hrs of drinking wine.

Left the riesling for tomorrow, opened a Dry hopped St. Rogue Red Ale instead. Nicely balanced, hoppy but not in-your-face hoppy as some other Rogues. Could have a little fuller body but that is probably because I had more double IPAs recently. I can see the red ale going well with some foods.

it was the Le Lucére, if anybody was interested. got it free from the doctor who abandoned me with the bleeding finger (he brought over most of the soon-to-be-ex-wife's forgotten wine collection, so he's forgiven), and boy was it worth every dollar. :)
