What are you drinking right now? - Page 860

I just picked up a bottle of the new Parker's Heritage. Figured I would save it until when I figure out whether or not I pass the bar. One way or another, drinking shall be done.

I tried a bottle of Parker's Heritage a few months back and was sorely disappointed. Seemed more alcohol than flavor. Gave away 3/4 of a bottle to a friend. Will be interested to hear your impressions.

Last year's batch sounded a bit disappointing. This year, they are donating $20 from every bottle to research for ALS. I figured it was a good cause.

Would love to hear how the Promise of Hope is...

Was that the blend of mashbills? 6? I liked it.

Drank at a few cool places in San Diego this week.

Seven Grand. Primarily a whiskey bar.
Mint julep and a Manhattan.


Polite Provisions. Very cool place. Loved the decor. Didn't really drink any cocktails there. (End of a long night) just ordered a house made soda concoction with some rum in it. Had a good restaurant connected to it that did meatballs, sliders, etc. It was solid. I would spend a lot of time here if i lived in SD. Plus cocktails were $7-8 as opposed to $12 at Seven Grand.

I will be sure to report my findings. I think I may succumb to the pressure this evening. I thought it was pretty neat as well. And I am honestly intrigued by it. Although it is a bit "boring" compared to the more adventurous releases, I am always intrigued by things that are simple but done well. It may not be as sexy as a bourbon finished in a cognac cask, I think that it will be a very nice expression.

I don't recall, but I think I bought it in late 2012. Just didn't have much flavor at all, with or without water, in a snifter, DOF, or anything else. Was just thick and monolithic.

 

Agree that ALS is a great cause though.

Bourbon finished in non bourbon casks usually sucks.

Old Fashioned made with Queen Jennie Sorghum Whiskey from Madison. Picked up a bottle when I was up there for my sister's wedding recently, it's good stuff. Not sure how easy it is to get outside Wisconsin, but if you have the opportunity, it's worth the 35 bucks.

Sipping the last of my ED15 and enjoying a nice cocktail and cigar on back deck. I'm sure this has been made before in some variation, but I just threw together:

Flor de Cana 4yo silver
Barbancort *****
Luxardo splash
Lime juice
Agave nectar
Perrier

I'm so glad my best friend is Guyanese.  I can get El Dorado on demand.  And none of that US bottled crap but the real deal

Lime
Small Hand Foods Pineapple gomme syrup
Green Chartreuse

Coworker took me to a pretty nice bar in Boston and I got myself a French 75 and two Old Fashioneds. They used regular angostura bitters with angostura orange bitters alongside brown sugar cubes. Very, very tasty. I like.

They used gigantic, square ice cubes for the old fashioneds, all 'carved' by hand from large, extremely compressed and crystal clear ice blocks.

The tab was butbut.gif.

What's the place? I'll be there in a few days.

Never bought any in Guyana. However, I can assure you the bottles I've purchased here would not be considered "crap" by any reasonable standard.
