    I really like Cognac and Scotch neat the last couple of days. Looking forward to the Coeur de Cognac and will probably get the Pierre Ferrand Ambre too. Also ordered a bottle of Gran Duque D'Alba. Looking forward to that too.

    Huh, I didn't know about the Gran Duque D'Alba. Sounds right up my alley. I'll buy it if I see it anywhere here in the States.

    I got it with a good discount (at least I hope so.. maybe they'll cancel it too) because my order of Macallan 12 was cancelled. I can report back in the end of December. :p
    FWIW, the regular/Gran Reserva Cardenal Mendoza is solid (and I'm sure the Carta Real one too :)).

    Meet me in Geneva
    2oz Courvoisier VSOP
    0.75oz Carpano Antica Formula
    0.5oz Cointreau
    0.25oz Maraschino Luxardo

    Interesting. Maybe some other ratios. Too much luxardo for sure, imo.

    I'm really confused about Ziegler's Trilogie der Himbeere. It has such an extreme raspberry note that it almost seems aritficial. But then again Ziegler is a top notch producer. I don't have much experience with clear "Obstbrand" so I'm not sure what other producer's Himbeer (raspberry) Obstbrände taste like. I just know that raspberry "eau de vie" is difficult to produce (lots of raspberrys needed).

    Well, I didn't eat it raw :p No worries :p I just saw it in the shop and could not resist as it is difficult to find pikes any time you want. Then I though that Laddie Rocks would be a nice whisky to complement it and so it was :p Ate it with cooked potatoes and sauerkraut (this is how we do it in Poland) :D :D :D

    Tom Miler, very interesting pairing of a pike to go with those excellent whiskies. When I was a kid I used to go fishing for perch and caught hundreds over the years but we never found them to be very good eating. Should have tried them with a malt and some sauerkraut :satisfied:

    Just got back from nice family camp trip... many a Green Flash "Double Stout," Bear Republic "Racer Five," Ballast Point "Sculpin" and High West "Bourye" rocks were had around the fire and barbeque. Don't wanna' go back to work.

    Working on a new Xmas drink. Here's the ingredients and proportions I just had:

    2 oz Bulleit Bourbon
    4 oz fresh squeezed OJ
    1 oz 1:1 simple infused with ginger
    2 dashes Old Fashioned bitters

    Very good, very easy to drink. However I want more spice and more heat to make it feel Xmasy. Next weekend will try:

    2 oz Bulleit
    3 oz fresh squeezed OJ
    1 oz 1:1 simple infused with both ginger and cinnamon
    2 dashes Old Fashioned bitters

    I think less OJ to let more of the spicy notes of the bourbon through and adding cinnamon to the simple should do it.

    Have not come up with a name yet.
