Nope, no imagination. Glass bottle>can>"reusable" bottle>"non-reusable" bottle. Also, smaller sizes are better.

I've still not really come to a conclusion. I'm having a hard time "ranking" Scotch.

Do you think they bottle different recipes for different sizes?
I thought it was all about the carbonation which does not volatilize when you drink a small packaging in one run right after you opened it.

I think they bottle the same. Quicker loss of carbonation is definitely one cause. I feel that they behave differently in bigger bottles, but maybe that's just imagination. Generally, the glass>can>"Mehrwegflasche">"Einwegflasche" is more crucial.

It's really not that hard. They all taste slightly different, which did you like the best?

There's a lot more to tasting notes and professional rankings, but that's the core element, and all that's really important. The rest is just describing the taste so that others can know what to buy based on their preferences, but the Laphroaigs are all so well known that you don't have to do that. I personally find I prefer the 10y expression over most of the older expressions (not that I'd ever turn down one of the other bottlings...), it just seems a little more in your face with the smoke, which I love.

Yesterday with Maker's Mark, today Woodford Reserve. 1 sugar cube per 1.5oz of liquor are too much imo. Today, I used 5/3 sugar cubes for 3oz, still a tad too sweet. Nonetheless, a great simplistic drink. I probably need to town down my Angostura dashes (about 2-3 dashes per 1.5oz) though, I think they cover a little much from the Bourbon's taste. By the way, fuck you and your 25$ Sazerac 6. laugh.gif It's 75$ here, for whatever reason. Speaking of liquor price, I've just heard that Chartreuse at Carrefour 300km from where it's produced is 30€. It's 22€ in Germany. Sick.

About the only way you'll hear me say this, but I'm drinking a vodka martini.

Of course, not just any old vodka. Żubrówka. I finally managed to find a bottle here in the US, though it was somewhat disappointing- the flavor strength seems to be weaker than the polish version, but it's still pretty good. I don't know if it's the lack of coumarin thanks to our moronic laws (the same ones that prohibited real absinthe for decades), but it's not quite the genuine article. I ain't complaining though, despite the faults, it's the only Vodka I really think is worth keeping around.

The drink itself is 4:1 with a twist and two drops of orange bitters.

That is because the Żubrówka expodred to the US is made with a different grass. The original grass used in Żubrówka contains coumarin, which is not allowed in the US. So they switched it to some other type of grass.

What a day! I am having a Jim Beam Black Label after a long conversation I had with Fred Noe (a grandson of Jim Beam). The portrait of this guy is on the bottle of JB White Label :D 

 

Actually, if you care to know a bit more about bourbon you can listen to this convo about bourbon and a Scotch whisky. The blog is in Polish but the convo is in English and the player is international :D 

 

 

That is the new bottle I have, and guess what ...by the time I reached Poznań going from Warsaw the entire autograph was wiped out :P I guess it is better to catch moments than things :P

How do you like Maker's Mark and Elijah Craig for mixing?
