    E&J XO brandy.

    Some of the best, cheapest brandy around.

    Anyone have any good recommendations for armagnac?

    Just opened a Grieskirchner Pils, which will be followed by their Weisse.

    It is quite exquisite and probably my favorite brew, the price is the only thing that keeps me from drinking it more often. This bottling was from Jan '10, I've had some older ones that were much creamier, so I'll probably pick up a couple bottles and cellar them for a while.

    Just saw Glenfiddich has a bottling that was aged in PX casks. Anyone try this yet? I'm thinking I need to get one.

    Sounds interesting - if you try it, please post your thoughts.

    You sure it isn't a Glenmorangie?

    If so, I have a bottle and it is very good.

    Yes, if it was the Glenmorangie, I'd buy a bottle taste un-tasted; would hesitate if it was Glenfiddich, which I doubt would pair especially well. Speaking of which, thanks, ama, for suggesting my tipple for the evening. An ounce of this when I finish studying, methinks: [​IMG]

    How would you describe the palate of this single malt?

    Excellent choice, in fact the only choice of the three new finishes. The Lasanta (sherry) tastes sulfured and the Quinta Ruban (port) tastes like if was finished in very cheap pipes. The 18 is also nothing to write home about, surprisingly bland despite it's age. The Astar is very good though.
