What are you drinking right now? - Page 52

post #766 of 14223
I'll post a picture later, if I get energetic, but I scored today. I was in CostCo for some of those 2.5 gallon water jugs for my office coffee maker. So I thought I would do what I call "cruise the booze". 18 year old bottling of Macallan sherry cask aged single malt for....$60 dollars! Then I saw they had a few bottles of 2003 BV Georges de Latour for $50! So I walked out with all three bottles of the Latour and two of the Big Macs.

Sipping the Mac right now and it is everything it should be

^^ Isn't that a Rusty Nail? Scotch and Drambuie?

I'm having something of my own concoction, I call it a Gold Coast. There' a classic cocktail called the Seaboard, which is:
1.0 oz. Gin
1.0 tblsp Lemon juice
3.0 each Sprig Mint
1.0 oz. Blended Rye/Whiskey
1.0 tsp Powdered Sugar

I replace the lemon with lime, use JW Black for the whisky and use fine ground brown sugar. Comes out a lovely gold color, so Gold Coast.

I hope to take some pictures, but tonight is a big night. I am getting together with five friends (and wives) in a private dining room where I and another of the guys are members. First, I plan to finally crack my bottle of Louis XIII. The other member is bringing a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue, and a 37 y/o single malt that is supposed to be quite special. I'll have a 21 y/o port wood aged Balvinie. For wine, I already have some light Italian bubbles on ice and plan to decant a 1984 Taylor vintage port. I know the other gent has some planned wines too, he tends towards Zin and Cab Sav.

The other three guys are picking up the food, I plan to have a steak size slab of foie gras. This should be a night to remember. In case you're wondering, it is the first anniversay of a good friend dropping dead and the Bacchanal is in his honor.

That's fucking sweet. Condolences on your friend's passing...but if I had died, that is how I would want to be remembered.

Tell us if there were any good toasts.

Good god. Sounds like a feast. I hope you all consume all of this in good health. It'd be ironical if one of you drop dead after a night of binging on good booze.

Well, no casualties. I do have a touch of a headache though



From the left:

Duncan Taylor Cask Strength, not only single malt, but single grain, single barrel. 37 y/o
Balvenie 21 y/o portwood
The main attraction: 1965 bottling of Louis XIII. It was otherwordly.
Johnny Blue
Then a bunch of wines, from a Latour to a du Pape to a Harlan and a Screaming Eagle.

I do not think I will ever participate in a tasting quite like this one again.

I, on the other hand, had an ordinary night last evening. Started off with some Cragganmore, Guiness, and finished with Glenfiddich and Heineken. I was wise enough to say no to the Mexican worm, so this morning was, in fact, a pleasant one.

Wait...it's possible to say no to the worm? Never works for the Connedude

So you're saying you always take the worm into your mouth?

Sorry, it was right there, had to say it.
