They take some getting used to coming from the sherried sweetness of most whiskeys. I know neither you nor Gnatty are at all new to this, but its hard to explain to people who are. The sweetness is inherent in the liquor itself, not resulting from its finishing or casking. Its a completely different taste than many are accustomed to.

Finished up a Three Philosophers earlier, and after picking up my wife I'll probably have a little bourbon or a cocktail of some sort (running a little low on mixers).

Yes, I also found the 18 "hotter" than the 12, and prefer a sweeter Scotch to woody/peaty. That said, the 18s very good, I just preferred the 12.

Headed to bed shortly, but decided to end the night with a Pimm's Cup. I was a little worried about the end results, being skeptical of the recipe, but I'm pleasantly suprised. I could see myself drinking a lot of these during the summer.

I kept a bottle, and mixed 1:1 with Pyrat XO it makes a powerfully interesting Dark n Stormy because of the raw ginger kick and the orange tastes of the rum.

In regards to the rum straight, it's amazingly quaffable. I read that the new Patron formula tweaks made it sweeter and bumped the orange notes up as well, and those are definitely the prominent elements of Pyrat's taste. The finish has no burn, just a tingling spiciness that the hangtag describes as cinnamon. Presentation is nice and for under $25 (I paid $20), this is a good gift option. I think especially women would like this style as it is nowhere near as assertive as most of the spirits I regularly drink. Even among rums of its age range and price, like This was a bargain, and will be a good bottle to have around when I tire of whiskey and tequila.

A glass of red Côtes du Rhônes with my luncheon, a '09er. It is very strong (14.5%) but quite good for its low price. Also, it has a Medaille d'Or which is always a good hint for me when considering to try something out. The CdR Villages sometimes have great (simple) quality in that segment.

Tonight, I'd like to sample some blend of Scotch called The Black Grouse. It seems to be 'based' on The Famous Grouse, could be that I'll also drunk-post, then so maybe expect some Jeromian madness...
