When I go to a nicer restaurant I typically opt for corkage, in part for the cost, but mostly because I have wines I've been saving for occasions, and these seem like good ones. Depending on the size of the party, a combination of wine pairings and bottles brought along typically works very well. In this regard, it's really not that easy for the bill to get into the range of other posts here, which signal that we're really talking about the most you've paid for...
Does anyone know of a US source for Perofil socks? These occasionally come up at STP, but I don't see them sold regularly anywhere online. My guess is that these will be a brick and mortar find. Any one know?
Hard to peg a favorite, but I recently had -- on tap for the first time (have enjoyed this by the bottle often) -- Dogfish Head 90 Min. IPA. Exceptional. Very clean lines, 5 gallon keg. Perfect expression of what this beer can be. It's excellent in the bottle, but this was stunning in a carefully managed bar.
I know the (presumed) vendor. How are the RA belis? I have not tried the current release and would be interested to hear more specific feedback -- do they remind you of any other cigars / profiles?
Lots of great smoking this past weekend: - A "near diplomatic" Trinidad Fundadore ... if that's a fair way of describing one of the first boxes produced for non-diplomatic functions. - A beautifully aged '03 Cohiba Robusto - A original release Siglo IV - A custom rolled from the Partagas dinner in 2009 (I'll attach a photo) - An '08 Siglo I I also finished off a bottle of Havana Club Barrel Proof with a friend, along with some champaigne and craft beers...
If you're looking for CDP, I suggest looking in the used market -- a lot more bang for the buck there. Best sounding used CDP in your price range I've heard is the Esound E5. I have owned the Signature version of this player and it's amazing. I also have an Oppo 83 and it does produce excellent CD playback sound ... plus it's a BluRay player with an amazing video processing chip, so you get the added benefit of one of the best BR players on the market as well. ...
I find the best to be Weller 12. I prefer higher proof spirits in many cocktails and this has a slight extra edge at 45% / 90 proof. I did side by side Juleps on Derby day with Weller 12 and Woodford and, to my taste, the Weller was the clear winner. I've also had excellent Juleps with Booker's (125 proof). I don't find Knob to be too peppery / spicy, but use it more in other cocktails. I'm not a fan of Maker's. I find it to be sweet, and would not use it in a...
I find the look to be timeless, but somewhat maligned by: boxy cuts, the "swing dancing" fad, and by David Letterman's bad habit of wearing his DB unbuttoned. I'll be posting some suits in the FS forum soon, including a solid charcoal gray LB Sartorial (made, I believe, by Attolini). For those of you who are a 40R and looking for a brilliant suit, that's one to consider.
