    well, the rate at which I blow through a bottle <<<<<<<< your rate of consumption. This tumbler will last the night, I might have the second tumbler on Friday, forget to drink over the weekend, and then go back to cider the next week. I''m flighty that way.

    You mean you don't do a minimum of half a bottle in one night? [​IMG]

    Airplane-bottle, maybe.

    But I have to be coherent the next morning, and possibly also ready to run a few miles before sun-rise. Can't do that with the brown-bottle flu. At least, not since I saw the other side of 30. [​IMG]

    T, you're a stud. I haven't ran since I got to Cyrus. I'm still burning a lot of calories, but my legs are so dead all the time. You da man.

    Wait - you burn through Jack and Guinness. BT isn't all that big a step up. But if so, I'd heard a few good things about Heaven Hill, which looks reasonable for the size. I only passed on it because the only thing I buy in handle size is rum, and that's just for fruitcake season, if I'm making any.

    Aw shucks. It helps having a race on the schedule: it's either suffer in small increments now, or suffer a lot later.

    Well I only buy those pint bottles of Guinness Extra Stout. One a week or so. And I don't drink Jack, I drink Evan Williams! [​IMG]

    That's right [​IMG] I think Evan and Heaven Hill come from the same distillery - not that anyone should infer that they're identical or anything. Maybe this year I'll go with bourbon instead of rum for the fruitcakes.

    Well, tried an Angel Share

    1.5 oz Louis XIII
    3/4 oz Walnut Liqueur
    1/2 oz 20 year tawny port
    1/8 oz Green Chartreuse

    Flame the snifter with the Chartreuse, then pour in the other ingredients. Very aromatic and tastes fine, but a touch too sweet for me.

    Getting ready for a 1999 Meursault Le Limozin with Dungeness crab, artichokes, and sourdough baguette.

    Sometimes I can't but let provincialism get the best of me.

    Had about half a bottle of Three Philosophers so I finished that. Maybe a tumbler of bourbon or G&amp;T before I go out
