    I have been experimenting:

    2-3 oz rye Bulleit 95 proof
    3/4 - 1 oz Bauchant Liqueur
    3-4 heavy dashes of Peychaud Bitters
    garnished with a badabing maraschino cherry

    old fashioned glass with ice, bitters then liqueur, finished with bourbon, stirred gently

    next, same recipe with Evan Williams 1783 substituted for rye....

    I found both great but the rye edged out the 1783

    On Mr Dinkys recommendation I had the Herman story 2010 sign maker with dinner yesterday, very good. Also had a Boedecker Pinot and 2009 lilian ladouys.

    Finished with Octomore 4.2 scotch which is incredible

    Nice to know; I'm glad you enjoyed it. I packed up most of my Herman's after my first bottle. I think I am going to lay them down for a year.

    The Highland Park 10yo was delivered yesterday and is half gone already. Lovely smooth dram!

    Tonight is going to be Brewdog's Punk IPA all night long!

    That is very sweet list. And nice Saxum.

    You are correct that the mother of exiles is too young. And I think this new vintage of Denner needs another year than previous vintages. I was at the release part for ditch digger, dirt worshiper and I thought they were all too raw. Brian Benson's wine were too young also. It is my feeling that a lot of Paso wines (this release0 might need some extra time.

    I had a 2010 Montelena Zin tonight, held out no real hopes for this wine but WOW !!!!

    It had fruit, acidity, body, a revelation, it drank like a $100 wine not the $25 I paid

    Love t when this happens
