    Drank laphroaig triple wood and big peat today

    But this was by far more interesting

    [​IMG]

    It's called hwayo. It's an "artisanal" soju. 41% abv. Very very interesting. Flowery, spicy, slightly sweet (?), strong but watery (?). It reminds me of shochu a lot. I thought it was actually quite good. Apparently only $10. Might have to look for this

    Went to a bar on recommendation of my favorite bartender. Turned out to be a super nerdy bar. Really enjoyed my time here

    [​IMG]

    Four kinds of martinis, three kinds of manhattans, three kinds of sazeracs. Everything the dude did and said was like music to my ears. Proper use of terminology (or at least great deal of thought into it)

    [​IMG]
    Favorite was a Ramos gin fizz. It was quite fun. Basically my table of friends had to pass the Boston shaker around and we made the drink together. Tasted like an orange creamsicle. Had a bunch of other things like the scofflaw and brandy crusta. They also did an interesting take on the negroni. Flamed an orange slice and use that as a garnish.

    Everything was balanced. Ice is all clear and hand carved. They could use better glasses but the bartenders palate was so on point. Was very impressed. He was also extremely knowledgeable. Also very impressive. Learned so much.

    Bar old fashioned in yeonnamdong. There's a few good eats and cafes around too. You should check it out

    (Also went to south side parlour and had a few grey market things. Quite liked the divey atmosphere and the owner and bartenders are Korean American)

    Yeah, what is the deal on that? It also seems to be pan-Asian as I've had to sip that with fathers that were Filipino, Korean, and Viet.

    my only working theory is that korean food is such a disgusting cacophony of flavor that koreans want their beverages to be flavorless




    i find the people who are most like me are sixty to seventy year-old whiteys
