    I just read about a cocktail called the Barnacle Bill that's supposed to knock you on you ass.

    1oz Pernod
    1oz Green Chartreuse
    1oz Marie Brizard Parfait Amour

    and shake. Someone who's got these should try this and report back.

    [​IMG] Okay, split a bottle of 06 Torres Don Miquel Chard for dinner. Then had a vodka martini with this new vodka, Ultima, and Vya vermouth. Next, tried a new cocktail I created. 2 oz anejo tequila, 1 oz each of Amaretto and Pimm's #1. Not too damn bad. Now, 6 oz of CC sherry cask aged and a can of diet lime coke.

    Good?

    I enjoy their White beer.


    It was pretty good, a little bit lighter than I like in beers, but overall quite nice. Grapes are very noticeable in the nose, not as much to the taste

    of the BDM's I've had in recent memory, not bad. Better than the Banfi 2004 I had last.

    In the real world
    I'm drinking the Antique Collection's Thomas Handy rye (last year's batch). To be honest, I am underwhelmed. The nose is quite boring. It smells of a stereotypical rye. Sniff Rittenhouse BoB and it is exactly the same. At 64.5% abv, it is surprisingly not harsh. The taste is sweet at first with a bit of carmel. The sweetness goes away quickly and a dry aftertaste follows. The flavor is spicy and medium-bodied. I taste a little mint, but overall, it is very one-dimensonal. Even with some water added, the flavor does not improve.

    I am disappointed and would not recommend it. The Sazerac 18 yr old is much, much better.

    What is your opinion on this whiskey? I just can't seem to love it.

    Maybe my favorite white. Tossup between Allagash and St Bernardus.

    Drinking Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. This is the first winter beer I have had so far for '10. Looking forward to the Anchor Steam and Anderson Valley, especially the AV.

    I like the Hardy a lot more than the Saz 18. The 18 seems find of flat tasting to me, like it once was a vibrant whiskey, but has been muted over the years. The Hardy is brash and exciting. It has a lot of fruit and pepper flavors that I love in a rye.
