    Just tried the Ardmore, very nice! Especially at this price range. Very sweet granny Smith apple tartness, nice smoky overtones and a medicinal finish that lingers. I'm very happy I took a chance on this one. Next time I'll give Bowmore a try since the price is so reasonable.

    I need to stock, up, I'm out of almost everything right now. Ardmore sounds nice, Ardbeg 10 is a must. For the really bad days, having a Laphroaig in cask strength on hand wouldn't be bad either...

    Anybody have a recommendation for a straightfoward vodka? I am usually not into the fancy schmancy designer vodkas, something clean and on the smoother side will do just fine. I usually keep that on ice and drink it straight up. Purely for medicinal reasons, of course.

    I keep the Costco brand vodka on hand. Clean good and cheap.

    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.

    Ended up skipping the Potrero 18th and opted for some Cruzan Single Barrel.
