    I've been to Melville a few years ago. They make quality wine. I have't tried their viognier though.

    I like the Melville viognier very much as a food wine. It is nice and dry, not as perfumy as you sometimes find in v., nice body to it, not as in-your-face fruity as many sauvignon blanks, and a welcome change from chardonnay-based wines. That was my last bottle yesterday, gotta stock up a bit again.

    Some of the best bourbon for $10.99 a fifth I have ever had. Great spice notes with caramel and vanilla, you can taste the wood, which is a good thing in this case. Nice comfy burn, drinking straight up. I am going to have to go back and buy 3 more. Over in Kentucky this weekend. I am debating to share, ok......it's Evan Williams 1783.

    Ok, so this thread has spawned a whole heap on bourbon drinking of recent.

    so far.

    Woodford Reserve
    Buffalo Trace
    Bullit
    Jack Daniels Single Barrel
    Four Roses Small Batch
    Elijah Craig 12
    Makers Mark 47 and Original

    So for me the Elijah Craig is the best so far. I've to mail order anything outside this list really which is a bit of a shame, so suggestions?

    Beer wise this icelandic White ale is lovely.

    Ate a big pile of sauerkraut, potatoes and various pork followed by some McClelland Islay.

    EC is a Heaven Hill produced bourbon, so you will probably enjoy some of their other products as companies tend to use the same mashbill for some/all of their lines. Age, proof and barrel selection are what determine one brand from another. There are 18 and 21 year old Elijah Craigs which will probably be expensive and hard to find. There is also a barrel proof version of the Elijah Craig 12, which here retails for about $42 which makes it a heck of a deal. That would be my #1 suggestion, but that can also be hard to find. Other things that come from Heaven Hill (or might as the mysterious world of Non Distilling Producers goes) include Evan Williams, Henry McKenna, Old Fitzgerald, Parker's Heritage, and Michter's 10 year old. They also produce two wheat whiskies, Bernheim and Larceny. Maker's Mark is also a wheat whiskey, so if this wasn't one of your favorites, don't bother. If they were, try the Larceny.

    So in short, I would look for Elijah Craig 18yo or 12yo Barrel Proof, Henry McKenna Single Barrel 10yo, Parker's Heritage 7th Edition "Promise of Hope", Michter's 10yo, or Larceny.




    Right now I am enjoying some Michter's 10 year old, barrel #2341.
