Don't recall. They were too beat up. thought about getting one for the buttons though.
Somewhere in the book they indicate they 'fell in love' with sherry in, I think, 2009. I've been to Death four or five times, all before then, and I remember the drinks being very good, especially the Cure for Pain and the Winchester. I made the Flor de Jerez with some Dry Sack on hand for cooking, and it was a little meh until the apricot ratio was upped a little, then it became very good. I love modifiers and find that I often like drinks a little modifier-heavy, but...

 Anything Glenfarclas also.  Meh. I didn't reduce my consumption while working full time and going to school at night part time with a 1.75hr commute (each way) in between. But then again I drink very little anyway, so.... ~ H
Just got the Death book. Sets the standard.
