1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I agree about the suits/coats. Yep, ninety bottles or spirits on the wall (and more on the way). I seriously enjoy fine spirits and fine cocktails, but oddly enough, have never been drunk.

    Best,
    Huntsman


    I really like wine and can see myself getting in to it once i'm more settled, but I'm too much of a pussy for the hard stuff. [​IMG] I don't like the burning in my throat and don't know how anyone gets used to it.

    GQ,

    I do know what you mean, and with straight whiskies and such its hard to avoid some sort of a burning sensation. Do know, however, that many cocktails when made well, won't burn. Proper sours, for instance, are just these smooth ethereal cocktails that embrace your mouth on the way down without any sting.

    Wine, well that is a whole 'nother story. I got into wine long before the spirits, and even though I'll never be able to afford getting into wine as much as I'd like, I do ok. Capacity for 116 bottles at present, and I'm running about 60% these days. Come refund time, I fix that [​IMG]

    Regards,
    Huntsman

    rambo, tequila is the last of the primary spirits that I have involved myself with -- as yet I don't know/have tasted enough to comment on it intelligently.

    Never heard of either of these. What's so special about them? I'm suprised nobody's mentioned Plymouth for Gin yet. You all need to get on that.

    Wyborowa is from Poland; they've been making it for something like 200 years. When I lived in DC I tried most of the vodkas at Russia house, which i believe has 20 or 30 varieties. Anyway, I always liked Wyborowa the best. As for tasting notes, I hardly ever drink vodka, (mostly gin, rum & scotch), so I couldn't say what makes it special, other than it makes an excellent drink. Interesting note: Frank Gehry designed one of their new premium bottles. Iceburg is purportedly made from harvested iceburgs. It is relatively cheap and very smooth; I usually keep a bottle around as a staple mixer.

    Good call on the Plymouth. Also forgot the Martin Miller Westbourne strength. Great gin when you're in the mood for something different.
