But do you like crushed ice? That is the question.

I basically do 1.5 measures rye, 1 measure dry vermouth, about .75 measure Luxardo, with a splash of orange bitters... It's fantastic.

yes. had some by the glass the other night too, and they opened it for us on the spot - tasted a bit different and didn't have that lithe sweet and sour like the full bottle I had. That was outside though, and it was stinkingly hot, so perhaps i wasn't as in the mood for it.

I kind of agree. I recognize that there are cocktails where crushed ice is appropriate, but I don't find the presentation all that interesting at all. I want to see my drink, tall in a Collins glass, concentrated in a cocktail glass, or rich in a rocks glass. Crushed ice just hides everything except the garnish, which on a crushed ice cocktail is traditionally quite garish.

I don't mind a straw on principle, however.

I'm really not a fan of white whiskeys. I think it's one of the dullest categories. It's nice from the perspective of deconstructing a spirit and learning about the category through that route.

I just see this price as a slap in the face to consumers.

It's the worst. I hate that they now make cocktail variants with that stuff and merely precede the original name with 'white' - like a White Negroni. I probably should try more of it to make sure that I am not disliking it on spec, since some clear spirits are very decent, but...

It is very much an American tradition to recognize any burgeoning movement that is based in some authentic set of principles, identify the appurtenances of those principles, create some targeted product that implies that it is aligned with the movement but in reality is counter to everything that it stands for, and then wipe out the movement with its cheap clone.

I have my one litre cask with Wiser's manhattans aging right now but think when I bottle that I'm going to cask age a litre's worth of the Trident.

My beef with the white negroni is that there is no campari. To me negroni is synonymous with campari so it's just not aptly named.

Apparently Whistlepig is planning to begin making locally.

I'm guessing it will cost $10-$20 more a bottle
