1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Went great with some dry aged rib eyes, garden fresh tomatoes, and a few grilled sweet potatoes.

    According to this label, I have been aged 29 years.

    Which is to say: I really like this label.

    That's a long time to live in a cask!

    Bijou:

    1 oz Citadelle gin
    1 oz NP sweet vermouth
    1 oz green Chartreuse

    Stir
    Strain into chilled vintage cocktail glass you thrifted at Good Will.

    Pio,

    How is that? I bought a bottle of it two weeks ago at Binny's and haven't opened it yet. I am expecting big things...

    The Signatory Bunna.

    On a side note, seeing your mixing glass in that last picture really makes me regret not buying when you posted that deal, it looks great.

    Ah, great Scotch. Caramel dominates. High alcohol but the caramel notes smooth it down. Baking spices and a sweet nose. Highly recommend.

    IIRC the recipe "changes" constantly since they source 22 (was it 22?) of the 47 (was ist 47?--I know that it's a shitload) herbs from Islay and thusly have to adjust to the natural order of things and vary the amount of herbs used. Not sure how much impact there is given the sheer amount of herbs used totally but it might be noticeable, for example the juniper is from Islay. Not sure either how much herbs of Islay they actually use in total in their production and whether the harvest's variation has any impact at all, but I think that's what they said.
