18 was replaced by the 15 LE iirc, no?Thoughts on the 25? The 18 is sooooooo good, and, I believe, sadly discontinued for the moment.
Update to this: the Yzaguirre Rojo makes an exceptional Boulevardier (with rye).I got tuned in to Spanish vermouth after a trip there this summer, and have been sampling the few that are available in my neck of the woods.
Yzaguirre Red makes an excellent negroni, if you like the herbal/bitter profile. Definitely going to make it into my rotation. Need to try it with a Manhattan next, think it'll be excellent for a fall/winter taste profile.
Remy XO is a nice baseline cognac. A nice calvados would make a nice, slightly left field gift for a brandy drinker also. Chateau du Breuil XO is good stuff.
If it’s for someone who knows cognacs, go for an Armagnac.
If you decide on cognac go for Delamain, you’ll look like a pro. Armagnac and Calvados are also good choices, as are Spanish brandies like Cardinal Mendoza or Lepanto which are affordable and easily found.
Ive had both Bas-Armagnac and Tenareze and prefer the Tenareze but there arent as many producers, at least not that I have found that make it to the West Coast.Yeah I was actually thinking an armagnac just because they seem more interesting on paper. But the Remy stuff is out as it is too common place. I'll take a look at Delord and Sempe.
