    I've always thought you were rather smarter than you let on.
    Perhaps I am...[​IMG] Thank you for the compliment.

    Still a little young IMO. Medium body but with structure for several more years of age. I'm gonna guess 2014 or so will be peak. Dark, dark, dark magenta purple. Had it with a grilled steak and cheddar/garlic mashers. The steak brought out lots of pepper and spice. My only regret is there was only one bottle and it was 50% off yesterday. If I had a second, it would cellar for a minimum of six years.

    I'm having a superb bloody mary right now, it was easy to make but you need a lot of ingredients:

    1 pt vodka
    2 pts tomato juice
    3 shakes of tabasco
    5 shakes of worcestershire
    a pinch of celery salt
    lime juice

    and the topper, a thimble of horseradish [​IMG]

    Rye and ginger is a nice mix.

    As for popularity outside of Canada; rye used to be a premier spirit in the U.S. also, but Prohibition killed its production and it never really snapped back, though there are five or six American ryes these days.

    As a matter of fact, American Prohibition made some Canadian families very wealthy.

    I do! Too bad you need a non-yahoo address to post at FdL, or I could probably add something of worth to the thread; I have a penchant for vintage spirits and cocktails.

    I believe it.

    Three bourbon-and-gingerales and two PBR's later, I've finished my online Calc III quiz.

    That's one of the best drinks ever, particularly if I don't feel like drinking bourbon straight on a night.
