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

    Circle Gets the Square
    2 oz bourbon
    Candied orange slice
    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. :)

    Great deal on the Lore. I tend to pick a different bottle to try each time. Lore is not one of my favorites as it seems a bit syrupy to me and I need to add a little water to open it up. It's definitely not bad just not my style.

    Popped into a store I don't usually go to and saw Laphroaig quarter cask and another Laphroaig that was aged in madeira casks (can't remember the name but hoping someone here knows it). Thoughts on either?
