Nice, we ate there a few months back. Good place, if pricey--but it is Napa, suppose that shouldnt be surprising.

That's quite a lot of whisky :D You won't have problems guessing which row is Caol Ila, will you ?

It's a versatile formula- you can use pretty much any liquor on the planet and wind up with a great result. Many of those variations are defined as drinks in their own right- most prominent among them the White Lady, which is when you use gin. IIRC, the bourbon version is rather boringly named a Bourbon Sidecar.

I used rum barrel aged scotch. Google didn't turn up any names.

A Scotcar?

Drinking a Vieux Carre with rum subbed in for the rye, extra dash of Peychaud's to add in some spiciness. It worked out well.

Nice spherical ice cube too. Too lazy for photography.

Cask aged Wiser's manhattan with a nice round ice cube and first taste of my vanilla pod, cocoa nib, cherry bark bitters.

How are the bitters, Piob?

Some Gran Classico and Laphroiag Triple Wood.

The bitters are good. I had to add nothing later on for the bitterring agent as the original ingredients took care of that. Very aromatic with the vanilla and cocoa nibs and the cherry bark adds a really great note.
post #13034 of 14151
What did you use as the base spirit for your bitters Piob?
post #13035 of 14151

A very fruity and chewy 'Cabernet Sauvignon' from South Australia. 

I could get used to varietal labeling.
