What are you drinking right now? - Page 772

post #11566 of 14489
I didn't realize there was a scotch thread, will definitely check that out. I wasn't really feeling the Glenmorangies that had flavors imparted onto them by the special casks, etc. I like the Glenmorangie 12 quite a bit, and definitely the Macallan 18. I really like what I can only describe as maybe a "heavy" finish? Is that peat?

I'm having the tequila-giner beer-thingy right now -- replaced the rum with anejo tequila in a "Dark & Stormy". That is, 20cl ginger beer, 8cl anejo tequila, 1.5cl lime juice. It's actually pretty good. Refreshing and very distinct tequila taste however neither dark nor stormy. I guess I still prefer a regular Dark & Stormy (plus the cheapest anejo tequila is 30% more expensive than Gosling's).

The Macallan 18 it is also a Sherry cask finish, however the finishes are more pronounced on the Glenmorangie scotches. I would expect more peat out of an Islay than the highlands, so I doubt that was the taste you noticed.

From my first three batches I would say to make sure you put your bitters in full strength. Getting them in for the casking process really makes a difference. Also, whatever you put in as the sweet notes, cut it back just a little. Cut back the vermouth, any liqueur, etc. just a little bit.

I increased up on Sprite, I had it a lot, and that's what I usually get. I am not old enough to have an alcoholic, but I observed most of those are pretty good. And this time I'm drinking coffee.

Warwick's Professor Black.

Cuba Libres
20cl Coke
6cl Mulata 7
2cl Varadero 3
1cl lime juice

Very good. The Mulata 7 has a good QPR with 16€/0.7l. Better suited for Cuba Libres than Plantation Barbados 5.
