Next time I’m doing this. Unfortunately, I’d just made a rather large purchase from Bottles and Bitters, not too long before my wine.com order. Was a bit concerned my wife would raise an eyebrow, so kept it to four bottles. Of course, I got in the doghouse for a coupla’ days anyway after my buddy and I smashed a bottle of Wray&Nephew in one sitting. That rarely happens, so she couldn’t get too uptight about it... Just made sure to bang out a bit of the Honey-Do list and all was well.FWIW, wine.com usually has a ‘spend $300 get $100 off’.
Yep. Sorry for disappearing.Is this the Speakeasy you were talking about?
Ok. Just ordered the Latitude. I bought it once before and handed it off before using it for much. I've had the Small Hands and was, like, meh. Have the Giffard and Marie Brizzard and they taste like zinc like Fees. I am such a PITA about orgeat.My last name lends itself naturally to tikidom but in the last like two three years or so. Just get latitude 29 or small hands (on Amazon) for orgeat. There's a few recipes floating around and for me latitude 29 get exactly what I want so im ok getting a bottle every few months
Can you afford not to, is the real question. Rum is the least expensive of the dark spirits in terms of QPR. For $50 of rum, you get a really really good drinking experience. Zacapa or Plantation 20th anniversary are ridiculous drinking rums under $50.I can’t afford to get into rum.
You know, I always want to love the Paper Plane, but I never quite do. While it is indeed a Quad, as Bhowie would say, I've struggled with considering it a LW variant even though that is how it is billed, because using an amaro as one of the four is to me very different than two liqueurs. The best LW variations that I've ever had are Bobby Heugel's Eulogy (Strega, Falernum, Arrack, Lime), Damon Dyer's Monte Cassino (Yellow Chartreuse, Benedictine, Rye, Lemon), and Franck Andoux's The Yellow (Yellow Chartreuse, Suze, Gin, Lemon) -- though that last may fail my taxonomic test as well. Sfumato and Benedictine might be good, as the honey in Benedictine plays well with Scotch. Felsinas, like Ramazotti, might also work well -- the Ramazotti-based Scottish Cyclops marries whisky well with that amaro.Try and amaro with some smoke notes, sfumato rubarbo. I wouldn’t use that ingredient in equal parts as everything else.Before dinner I had a Paper Plane, one of the best variations of the Last Word. To my knowledge, there is no variation made with blended scotch (I don't consider the Penicillin to be a true variation because it doesn't contain four ingredients in equal parts), so I'm going to try to invent one. Lemon juice is the obvious second ingredient, so I'm going to play around with the other two ingredients. The first try turned out to be a bit too tart.
if you’ll allow that in your limited bottle selection.
Thumbs up to rugby (former outside center)Friday night had two schooners of a quality milk stout with Mrs GF she was drinking Capital Ale Summer Breeze and a pizza at Grease Monkey bar then turfed out after an hour....an hour WTF? Couldn’t find another bar that wasn’t fully booked, so quality bottle shop visit for a few tinnies of this and home.

At least there is a choice of rugby or league on the box. Damn you Covid 19.
