Rye Manhattan last night. I'm tweaking it: 1oz Sazerac 6 1oz Crown Royal 3/4 oz Vya Sweet 1/2 oz Lillet Rouge dash simple syrup 4 drops VTR bitters Followed that up with some Tessaron Lot 53:
a splash of the Mercian (Kirin) Karuizawa 17yr single malt. Wonderful stuff.
Hmmm....needed something really clean tonight. Thought about a nice Poli grappa, but no. Actually reached for a bottle of Hayman's Old Tom gin neat -- a good choice. Strong on the juniper and citrus, sweetened just a touch.
Tried a Harvard cocktail the other night. Recipe I had was brandy, grenadine, sweet vermouth and bitters, not the version google turned up with no grenadine and soda water. Quite the enjoyable cocktail. Tangy is the word I would use, it reminded me a lot of the sidecar, though the brandy is the only thing the two have in common.
famous grouse neat after the long cold walk back from class. followed shortly after by a glass of merlot. thinking about taking a third lap while i watch a movie.
Redemption Rye, a bright young rye, in a newly bought glencairn glass. Both of which I quite like.
Very hungover from last night's festivities. Started out with a group of friends at my buddy's man-cave. Spinning records and drinking Michter's 10yo and Old Pouge bourbon rocks with a Duvel back. Moved onto many Ballast Point Sculpin pints at the pub thereafter. Took the edge off this afternoon with a coupla' Scrimshaw Pilsner X Ace Perry Hard Cider snakebites in the jacuzzi. Two glasses of Tre Viti, 2006 Edna Valley Syrah with dinner. Done.
Rogue Chocolate Stout for all you craft beer lovers out there.

Dom and Jean Laurent...i.e., I just received a job offer and am celebrating in a cliche way with my friends! Kyle did sign off on the JL. For the initiated, they are, in fact, on my B&W 683 speakers.
very nice, chap.
