I had dinner with a friend last night, we were gluttons....

We split a 4-pack of Dogfish Head Pumpkin Ales while I made dinner and we enjoyed about a dozen and a half seared sea scallps.
We then enjoyed a bottle of 2007 Perrin et Fils' Vinsobres Les Cornuds with our main course of Porterhouse, grilled squash, and baked russets.
Followed up dinner with a pair of basil daiquiris - up (think mojito martini, sub basil for mint, hold the soda).
Then we went ahead and capped the evening off with a couple portions of High West Rendezvous Rye - neat.

That is really a fantastic rye, for you whiskey drinkers out there. Good enugh to regularly convert me from my usual Basil Haydens bourbon.

I haven't opened up anything yet tonight, I have a growler of Roller Bock from a local brewery - Buckbean, that's prolly on the menu eventually.

I did a private dinner at some wealthy guys house at the last minute on Christmas eve, as I walk out the door he hands me a box and says merry christmas and thank you. Inside the box $2500.00 tip on top of the $1000.00 dinner for 4 and a full size bottle of the 64 MacCallan. It was a good Christmas that year. Been horrible since.lol

Reminds me, long time ago I used to occasionally hang out at a bar that had the 30y Black Bowmore and the rare 40y bottling, the 40y sold for $690 a shot. As a poor post doc I offered them $200 for a teaspoon of each just to compare them, but they didn't do it. Years later the 40y bottle was still almost full and it was definitely not getting better from sitting on a bar shelf. Still annoys me when I think about it.

Quoting myself, that's a new one... Anyway, finally submitted my first job application, added everything they requested - 95 pages! Who is going to read all that crap?

I decided to spoil myself by picking up a nice half bottle of champagne and some Thai food. Then my car didn't start again. In the rain. And the dark. By the time I got a jump start, I was soaking wet. So, instead of rewarding myself with champagn, I am drinking a double Knob Creek against the cold. Well, as cold as ii gets here...

I'm sipping a recent acquisition from K&L:


Laphroaig "Triple Wood" Islay Single Malt Whisky (http://www.klwines.com/detail.asp?sku=1076003) 750ml - Multiple Reviews on this limited release that was supposedly for European Travel Retail only! Lucky for us some popped up in California. This is essentially Quarter Cask finished in Oloroso Sherry Butts. "so in addition to the intense charcoal smoke attack there are rich fruity notes; blackcurrant and berries. Itís an evening barbecue whisky. Grill that fish until itís blackened and crispy, drizzle on lemon, and as the smoke rears up in protest, sip this. Big, moody, broody, fruity, and rich: whatís not to love? " 94 Points Dominic Roskrow Malt Advocate,"Similar to Laphroaig Quarter Cask, but also finished in oloroso sherry casks. Fruit and smoke: fleshy red berries, red licorice, toffee, ripe barley, coal tar, sun-baked seaweed, peat smoke, and a hint of coffee grounds. Tarry finish. I rated the Quarter Cask a 91, and I think this whisky is in the same ballpark. If you like sherry-influenced whiskies, then go for the Triple Wood. If not, then consider the Quarter Cask." 90 points



I miss the prominent salty and iodiney aspects of the 10yo cask strength or even the 15yo Laphroaigs.

This is very reminiscent of the Ardbegs that were finished in sherry casks.

Haven't tried the Triple, but in my mind, that quarter cask is hard to beat. It's a seriously nice malt. As for the Sherry finished Ardbegs, well the sherry didn't stand much of a chance really. It's just hard to mask/mellow an Ardbeg, they're just so distinctive and forceful, you know?

As long as we're talkin' Islay, anyone tried any of the Kilchomans?

The Ardbeg ten I remember comes with peat, to be sure. But it also comes with a healthy dose of iodine and salinity. I mean, the Port Charlotte and most stuff from Ardbeg are absolute peat bombs, to be sure, and while both from Islay, they're completely different drams. For straight smoke and affordable, the Caol Ila 12 and Bowmore 12 (if you REALLY want smoke). You can find both sub $35 if you keep your eyes out. But the Ardmore was a perfectly nice dram if I recall right, so I think you'll enjoy it.

I like the straight Charbay vodka. Used to be dirt cheap, not sure if it stills is. Still got a couple bottles lying around. You might be close enough that 42 below is available and cheap. It's an interesting wheat based NZ vodka. That's what I give people that tell me vodka doesn't/shouldn't/can't have it's own flavor profile. Anyway, in NZ it was like 35NZD and you're pretty close so... Otherwise I'd go Stoli.

For drinking, Kettle One is still king. They are one of the only brands that has kept their quality up and their price down.
For sipping though, Stoli Elit is the vodka of choice for me. There are boatloads of designer brands going on now, but almost none of them earn their premium over Kettle in my book, Elit is the exception.

I'm drinking Stone smoked porter tonight, somebody posted it last week and gave me a hankering. I picked some up yesterday, so tonight's the night.

Barber told me of a beer made in Japan and sold in a golden colored can - so after my haircut I went to local Japanese market and they had on sale "Suntory The Premium Malts Draft Beer" in golden colored cans. Not sure it is the beer the barber talked about but I picked up 2 cans and went to the cashier. The cashier requested to see my ID!!!!:lol2:
I told her I am collecting Social Security - but she insisted to see my ID - so I gave her my ID and said thank you :happy1:
So having my hair cut has made me appear years younger - to 1 person - beer was ok :D

much better than the early days. here are a few write ups.

McCarthy's started to receive significant acclaim in 2004, when Jim Murray's Whiskey Bible gave McCarthy's its Best Small Batch Whiskey in the world award and a score of 94. That same year Michael Jackson put McCarthy's in his list of The Ten Best American Whiskeys, published in both the Men's Journal (December 2004) and The Malt Advocate ( First Quarter 2005). Consistently rave reviews have continued. In his 2006 edition of The Whiskey Bible, Jim Murray wrote, "McCarthy's has earned a place among the world's elite whiskeys." His 2008 edition of The Whiskey Bible gave McCarthy's a phenomenal score of 96.

The Ardbeg ten I remember comes with peat, to be sure. But it also comes with a healthy dose of iodine and salinity. I mean, the Port Charlotte and most stuff from Ardbeg are absolute peat bombs, to be sure, and while both from Islay, they're completely different drams. For straight smoke and affordable, the Caol Ila 12 and Bowmore 12 (if you REALLY want smoke). You can find both sub $35 if you keep your eyes out. But the Ardmore was a perfectly nice dram if I recall right, so I think you'll enjoy it.

Mmmm...Ardbeg, I have the 10 for everyday drinking and a bottle of the 17yr old that isn't made any more.

I just thought 'Dang, I don't have anything at home anymore' - and then I remembered that I have two wine fridges. :slaphead: I clearly need to drink more wine... Although, one of them is full with dessert wines, not something for every day. If this were a free country, I would probably sell some of it (sorry, pet peeve...).

Well, my car had been in the shop with electrical problems and the error codes indcated that it needed a new cam position sensor and a new computer. Since first the Chrysler guy gave me a wrong part number and then the company I ordered a computer from messed up my order, the car was in the shop for 11 days and in the end I had to get a rental for a few days just to get my basics organized. Yesterday I picked up the car, total damage $650 (I got a refurbished computer for $200 with warranty compared to the $850 Chrysler wanted), but the mechanic told me that the engine light is still on with a new error code - turns out that the Chrysler guy has given me the wrong part number AGAIN and the computer is searching for a valve that my model doesn't have. But the mechanic said he tested the car and all seems to work well, so I took it home, drove it around a bit, and tried to decide whether I should replace the computer again if it works as it is. Well, this was answered this morning whe my car didn't start and had exactly the same symptoms it had 2 weeks and $650 ago. Car is back in the shop, another computer ordered, and maybe the alternator has issues as well. Chrysler Sebring 2002 with 27,000 (!) miles. Piece of sh^%.

So, I don't yet know what I will be drinking tonight, but it will probably be a lot of it.

Had a Duvel last night. Very nice, the person who came to pick up a puppy brought it.

Drinking a "Happy Buddha" beer. Not too bad, Chinese and tastes like it.

I had a lemon gras eau de vie last night, brought that over from Germany from my favorite distiller Dirker. Interesting stuff. The story is that the owner of a Thai restaurant asked him to make a digstif for him and that's what he came up with. Won a few international gold medals since, AFAIK.

@bprescot: my sympathies regarding the yellow tail!

For me it was Elijah Craig bourbon tonight.
