    Westmalle Trappist and Rodenbach Grand Cru, both of which were gifts.

    The Westmalle is excellent, but slightly disappointing: not my favourite Trappist beer (that's still St Benedict's), as it's slightly bitter, but it's still very very good. It also crosses off another Trappist beer: only de Koningshoeven left!

    The Rodenbach is also good: sweet and fruity, as well as slightly sour.

    I know that many people here will judge me for the improper use of an aged spirit in a cocktail, but I'll just say: it was worth it! I've posted a recipe for the "suffering bastard" in this thread before, but this new version swapping in rum instead of bourbon is much better.

    2oz Ron Zacapa Centenario rum
    1oz Hendrick's gin
    1oz lime juice
    0.5oz simple syrup
    2 dash Angostura bitters
    1 dash Fee Bro's barrel aged bitters
    4oz ginger beer

    Mix all but the ginger beer, stir into a glass, then stir in the ginger beer. This is truly refreshing and delicious. The Zacapa adds a sweeter and simpler flavor than the bourbon.

    How about you guys, how adament are you against using fine spirits in cocktails? Do you ever splurge and do something like this, or are you a strict adherent to the school of 'cheap liquor for cocktails and fine spirits for sipping only?'

    Evan Williams Bourbon, neat.

    Anyone happen to know what (if any) is the difference between their green and black labels?

    As far as I know, just the ABVs. Green is 80 proof and Black is 86 proof.

    It sure isn't going to be mistaken for Sea Smoke or Peay, but it's a perfectly drinkable Pinot. A bit over priced for what you get though, IMO. I mainly went in to buy a couple of their wine glasses. I have a sister in the far north of Ontario and the property her and hubby live on has been called "The Frog Pond" for about 20 years. I gave her the glasses as a gift at the family union in April.
