^Sounds good.

A few Hemingways w/ Barbancort and a nice cigar on back deck after dinner party.

Of the things that I've seen that seem to have a fairly wide distribution, the worst that I've had was the Wasmund (Copper Fox) stuff. I'd avoid them.

They do have cheap barrels though if the Pio in anyone here is strong: http://www.copperfox.biz/products/index.php#barrels

Oh, nice! BMH limited does not get a lot of good press here on SF, but it is my go-to bourbon one step up from the well stuff (which is Woodford for me). I always enjoy it neat or in a cocktail that doesn't distort it too much. We have a lot of similar tastes, though I am not a fan of the Karlsson.

This implies that you don't like Old Fashioneds? Hmm. Sazerac? I love a Rum Old Fashioned with a bit of cane syrup and falernum. The best one I ever had was made by Nick Jarrett at Clover Club, where he split the base using Zacapa, Lemonheart 151 and another rum that I don't recall, along with Jerry Thomas bitters. One of my top 5 cocktail experiences was drinking that thing.

The Karlsson is interesting yet problematic due to its distinctive nature. Tito's is far more versatile and my go to.

I love old fashioneds, I just didn't really like the one I made with rum. It wasn't bad, per se, but not really to my taste.

^ You called the rum "ok" and then said it was still better than whiskey?

Ah, now I get it. rotflmao.gif my original post has a typo. I mean to say that it was much better WITH whiskey.

That's what happens when you drink and post, I guess.

Appleton Estate Reserve, Mexi Coke, lime, ice.

Aviation. A tiny bit too much creme de violette, but not bad.
post #11080 of 13985
Saw this tagged at 19.99 in the store a block from my apartment. While not remarkable, if I hadn't bought it myself I'd guess it was a >$50 bottle. Never been a huge fan of Crown, so I'm happy I found this one to try out.

Just got this delivered: http://www.amazon.com/Schott-Zwiesel-Collection-Fashioned-10-3-Ounce/dp/B00284AJD4/ref=pd_sim_sbs_k_2

So in celebration, an Old Fashioned with Maker's Mark.

Slowly using up my tray of Fever Tree Tonic Water.
It was recommended to me as being a very good Tonic, yet I do not taste much of a difference compared to Schweppes. Maybe the latter being a bit sweeter.
Schweppes is 1.5-2€/l while Fever Tree is 7.5-8€/l, so besides I prefer the 0.2l glass bottles of FT over the 1 or 1.25l PET bottles of Schweppes I do not really see the point of getting another tray of FT.
What brand of TW do you use?
post #11083 of 13985
Fever Tree / 1724 (very expensive, but give it a try.. most floral TW) / Thomas Henry (budget one in Germany at least, 1€ per bottle or so).
Also you may want to give this a try: http://www.jeffreymorgenthaler.com/2008/how-to-make-your-own-tonic-water/
post #11084 of 13985
Do you notice a significant difference in flavour between Schweppes and FT?
What gins do you pair it with? I have got Tanqueray and Beefeater.
post #11085 of 13985
I prefer Beefeater over Tanqueray. I also have a bottle of Hendrick's, but never made a G&T with it so far. I'm sure others can elaborate further, I don't have that much experience with other gins. Citadelle might be worth a try (but only with 1724).
