1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Trader Joe's now stocks candied orange slices, which are delicious.

    Liberal amounts of fee bros barrel ages bitters

    Muddle together, serve over a large ice cube.

    Was really good. Following it up with Ron Centenario 30 year, which is excellent, my favorite bottle when I feel like treating myself. It was a good week, and worth celebrating.

    Aviation Gin, not one I've tried but it's going cheap at a local chain. Views, opinions sought? Dive in or pass that is the question?

    Never had it but IIRC it's very heapy on the juniper.

    Edit: Apparently I recalled incorrectly. ;) Seems to be on the less-junipery and more floral side.

    I worked for Aviation for a bit. It is a very good New World gin. I think it makes a lot of really good subtle cocktails. While I hate the company, the product is good.

    I picked up 2 bottles of Laphroaig Lore for $65/bottle.

    I'm strongly recalling that some American gin that's supposedly super heavy on the juniper was talked in here about. Is there any rather popular one?

    Spritz again for me.

    Edit: Seems to be a good price compared to Germany's. Have you tried it yet? Still have an unopened bottle of the Laphroaig 15 LE. :)
