    Grand Marnier Edition Collector 2006, special bottle of the regular cordon rouge i believe.
    Is it a special edition bottle or an actual special edition of the liquer itself?

    Dropped by the liquor store on my way home. The picture was taken after we had downed a few Manhattans too many.

    Got a few things today. A couple bottles of cheap red blend, but supposedly very good. Another bottle of my beloved ME SB, and a modest SB to try. Also, a bottle of Bourbon. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I finally replaced my Vya sweet vermouth. I had to go something like 2 weeks without it, which is a rediculously long time considering I use it for almost every one of my favorite cocktails. Delicious stuff.

    One of my greatest fears, now that I've found Vya, is that I might one day not be able to find it.

    Its one of the Buffalo Trace Antique bourbons. I tasted it at a buddy of mine's and bought it on the way home, one of the best ryes I've ever had. I like the 10yr Michter's more (it tastes like a pepper storm in a flower garden to me), but objectively I don't think its as complex. Handy is sweet, spicy and strong. I think its much better than Rittenhouse 21, which to many is the gold standard of ryes. I highly recommend.

    Purchased Maison Prunier - Axel Gay cognac. It is a grande champagne cognac and comes with that silky, almost greasy, feeling on the tongue. I may have over-purchased for my purpose, which is to make my favorite cocktail - the Vieux Carre. In the cocktail, this cognac is actually noticably different from my usual, Remy Martin 1738. I really like it.

    Cognac, on the whole, seems almost too smooth and silky for me. I need a little roughness, which is probably why I enjoy rye so much.

    Just bought a bottle of Buffalo Trace while on a business trip to Houston. I plan to keep this one on hand. It is good stuff. Especially when you consider the price.

    A bottle of Remy VSOP, for cocktails, and a bottle of walnut liqueur. I plan to make a drink known as The Angel's Share this weekend.

    1 1/4oz Louis 13th
    3/4oz walnut liqueur
    1/2oz port
    1/8oz Chartreuse

    I plan to make one with Louis, and one with the VSOP.
