I bought a set of the double walled glass similar to those, a bit wide but really like them.

Really enjoy them too. They’re my go to for anything with rocks. Have four tall ones for long drinks as well.

I just bought a bottle of St. Elder elderflower liqueur to replace my almost-empty bottle of St. Germain. The taste between the two is very similar. The major difference is in the mouth feel. St. Elder is light and crisp while St. Germain is heavy and syrupy. Think the difference between Combier and Cointreau (with a significantly lesser difference in taste). At around $15 less at my local liquor store, I think I might stick with the St. Elder going forward.

Had some newly acquired Nikka from the barrel. That is a heavy one at 51%, big ice cube was needed on that one.

It’s also American made!

My father in law is a scotch guy but loves that stuff. I recently spent an afternoon around town picking up 17 bottles for him, which will probably last him 6-8 months

Whoa. That is a lot for a short period. I had a wee dram and man that is some strong stuff. Followed it up with some Siduri and was feeling it a bit.

I first got him a bottle for Christmas a few years ago when it first started popping up. He loved it, lasted under a week. My state is liquor controlled, so the Nikka comes around every so often in gluts; if I don’t grab it when it’s here it could be 6 months before it comes back around, hence the 17 bottles

My favorite part about all the elderflower liqueurs is that elderflower isn’t the actual main flavor. It’s lychee. Taste St Germain and think lychee. Kinda ruined it for me.

That said St Elder is a wonderful product with a low ounce cost. It’s a way for you to put “elderflower” on your menu at 1/4th the cost of St G. Helps you move shit out of inventory by appealing to a certain demographic.

Most japanese whiskeys are in the scotch mold. (They even own some scottish distilleries - Ben Nevis)

Can't wait until I go back to Japan and can pick it up for ~$25
