Finally found some Stichelton last week. I've been looking for it since it was mentioned here 3 years ago or so. It's very good.
^ This developed nicely over the past 2.25 years sitting in the cabinet.
Negroni w/ Martini Gran Lusso, The Botanist & grapefruit twist. This is what heaven tastes like.
I really dig it. Sharon van Etten vibe (they're friends too). Concert in June for 14 €, tickets already bought.
Concentrated beer can be very good though (Eisbock, for example)! Last 2-3 weeks or so: Meh. The West Coast IPA is alright. The other stuff from Ratsherrn is pretty boring. Their "limited editions/microbrews" are good though (mostly brewed by Ian Pyle). Not my type. Very nice! (also a gusher) Also pretty damn good. Should've kopped more of these at 1.79 € / bottle. Wow.

Why would you put an empty can in the fridge?
Villa & Jardins Ephrussi de Rothschild is nice too. It's right next to Nice. Gassin and Ramatuelle are worth a visit on the way to Avignon. Very idyllic villages with a great view. St Tropez is alright--should you decide to visit it, go around the Citadelle on top of the hill. Beautiful view. Abbaye Notre-Dame de Sénanque is nice too. When I was there, they were doing some sort of Gregorian chant. Super impressive. Should you, for some reason, decide to cross the...
