    Actually drank alcohol tonight. Miraculous, I know. Had:

    Bell's 2 Hearted Ale - this was on tap. Nice and smooth, not too hoppy, and a very crisp finish.

    Great Lakes Christmas Ale - This is heaven in a bottle. Seriously. Any beer lover worth his salt should stockpile this shit. So so tasty.

    Three 22oz mugs of Anchor Christmas Ale at my local. Figured I'd have at it while it was still around!

    I think I need something with a little more kick

    This looks very promising, how do you like it?

    Drinking a glass of BenRiach 16 year old right now, no ice, no water. Love it.

    Ardbeg Uigeadail with a couple drops of water. Not bound to be a favorite, but it's not bad whisky.

    I did, yes, the day I bought it. I like it, probably in my top ten single malts at the moment. Top three slots right now belong to that BenRiach 16 year old, the Longrow 14 year old, and the new batch of Aberlour a'Bunadh I bought a couple of weeks ago.

    X-post from my fairly ignored "Whiskey Blind Tasting" thread: Well, just got home from the tasting and am fairly polluted. I'd say my palate died around #9, but probably started to fade before then. I took it to #12, but definitely was relying more on my nose than taste buds towards the end, which isn't really fair, but... I won't go into every bottle, but for my particular tastes (and nose) the whiskeys that rose to the top (in no particular order!) were: PVW 20yo (shocking, I know!) ER 17yo (again, shocking!) Whistlepig Rye High West Bourye High West Rendezvous Rye Blanton's VW Family Reserve Rye 13yo PVW 15yo There were other worthy contenders, but for my palate, these ones took the cake. One interesting note, the Old Protrero Rye surprisingly put me off. I was really looking forward to getting a bottle of this, so I was kind of bummed that it didn't make the cut. In fact, I singled it out as having a lot going for it, but there was some flavor and nose characteristic which simply disagreed with me. It was kind of a fishy note. I dunno. One of my buddies, who was silently tasting along with me, had no such experience. He rated it well. Different strokes. Nothing nothing terribly out of left field was revealed, I guess... except, that the High West was right up there with some of the more well known heavies, at a significantly lower price. Really, it was just a fine time and I was well stoked when the food finally came. G'nite.

    Glad you like it! Have you delved deeper into the BenRiach universe yet? They have a lot of interesting whiskys. The like to play with peat and different casks and some of their sherried single casks are otherworldly.

    Just had the Sam Adams Winter Classics pack with a friend. We both thought the only good ones in that pack was the Boston lager, and even then it was still pretty mediocre. I used to enjoy it a few years ago, but that was when I started craft beer, so I figured perhaps my tastes/palate changed since then. So now I'm just finishing up the day with some Obsidian stout from Deschutes brewery. Yummy.
