    Is that one of the travel retail bottles? I've heard they are pretty good.
    Yes, exactly. Bought on a NY to Tokyo flight or at JFK. It is rather good though I am not familiar with Highland Park's regular bottlings so can't compare. Very smooth, obvious sherry taste, touch of orange and caramel with a subtle peat smokiness at the finish. Like Macallan 18 if you added a few drops of Caol Ila.

    While I was at Whole Foods the other day I ran into the Shipyard Brewery rep doing a sampling. Nothing out of the ordinary but he did introduce me to this: [​IMG] Not half bad. A bit overly sweet and not quite as "rooty" as I prefer it. Virgil's is a better choice IMO. But, at $4.50 a 4 pack its a pretty good deal.

    First I had a Hendrick's gimlet. I followed it with some Zaya, neat. The Zaya tasted like ice cream, it was absolutely delicious. This rum is growing on me, as is the overpowering vanilla.

    Weyerbacher Simcoe Double IPA (unfiltered)

    Going back to the wasteland of beer that is Ontario tomorrow :<

    It's not horrible really, but could be so much better. Belgian beers are insanely cheap ($5.65 for 750ml of Chimay Red, $3.50 for Orval or Westmalle 330ml, no joke) when you can find them. It's hilarious, I'm looking at their website and being all "OH MY GOD! Hitachino Ginger! Aventinus! Amazing!" when I can easily get all this shit at my grocery store in the middle of no where in Pennsylvania :\\\\\\

    Punt e Mes.
    I had to look this one up. How would you compare it to your usual standby Vya?

    Just had a Vodka Tonic (Tanqueray Sterling) and now I'm about to open a New Belgium Summer Ale.

    Have some Creative Writing to bust out...

    Incomparable. Different worlds. Punt e Mes is quite bitter compared to a 'sweet' vermouth, and I would never sub it in place. I use it quite rarely, in fact, but it keeps ok. ~ H

    An Aviation.

    Next time I get to a decent bar I'm going to try one of those.

    Right now though, a Gall Bracer, longer then normal with seltzer. I'm working on a paper, see.
