The older plastic gets, the more likely it will leak stuff. Whether you care about that or not is up to you. I still use my AeroPress without worries. Still, if I had to choose between two "identical" products, one plastic and one ceramic, I'd definitely choose the ceramic version--if reasonably priced.
Juvé y Camps Gran Reserva 2008. Very good. Rich taste, dry finish. Marimar Estate La Masia 2009. Very good. Rich and jammy. I prefer old world style but every now and then something like this is good. Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé. Fantastic. Also a few other cavas and crémants, all solid but nothing noteworthy. Domaine Lupier - La Dama 2008. Beautiful wine. Maybe still a tad too young, the acidity is still a bit untamed. But maybe that's the beauty of it. Castello di...
Royal Bermuda Yacht Club. Delicious. 2 oz gold Barbados rum (I used Flor de Cana 7) 1 oz lime juice ¾ oz falernum ¼ oz Cointreau
Picked up some Saffron Gin. Now what to do with it? I'll try it in a Negroni today. Maybe in a martini? What else? Could work in a Gin Sour too.
Only listened to it once so far. Has a pretty intense Sonic Youth-vibe. God but not as good as Sonic Youth's best ones.

Actually, for rum aged with the solera system, you can specify the oldest distillate on the label. The initial batch was 23 year olds, but the newer "refill" batches are 6 years old, afaik.
Thanks. It's a wedding gift for my cousin, so while I have limited funds, I'd like it to be somewhat special. I think I'll go with the XO. Still haven't had the 23 myself, just the 15. It's often available for 45-50 €/1 litre, so I think I'm gonna pick one of those up for myself sometime soon.

Anyone? The Zacapa XO is on discount until tomorrow (usually 80 €-ish). Will order it tomorrow evening unless someone objects.Today: Negroni, wine, then mulled wine because the Marchesi di Barolo - Barbera del Monferrato wasn't that good. Now, a Ranglum.
