    Chilled Morning Fog Chardonnay by Wente Vineyards to wash down dinner. Very different taste to the West Australian Chardonnay which tends towards a dominance of butter and cantaloupe flavours.

    Does it come in an unwooded variety would be interested in trying it.

    10 bottles of Stella Artois. It has become my go to readily available lager. Boring yes, but refreshing and a cut above Bud, Miller, etc.

    girlfriend is a flight attendant for Air Canada and had a layover in the Republic. Was hoping for a standard expression but she got a single barrel. Still, it's a whole different style of rum from the sweet syrupy spicey stuff. (short answer, not the LCBO!)

    I was a joak bro…

    Having a flight attendant for a girlfriend is quite the fringe benefit. My ex worked for China Airlines when I lived in Taipei (it's Taiwanese.. NOT Chinese actually) and I can't tell you how many perks… top-shelf booze, full bottles of wine, hotels, mile-high club, international flights, special this special that… even when she wasn't flying she would just tell her friends "take care of the guy in 36D" or whatever. It was fun while it lasted :nodding:

    Manhattan made with Alberta Springs rye, Carpano Antica and my new Bad Dog Bitters Sasparilla bitters. Delicious.

    Alberta Springs = Whistlepig without the premium.

    Very true. It's my go-to standard. Can't beat it, although I have yet to try Canadian Club's new 100% rye.

    I bought a bottle of the CC 100% rye and it is much better than I expected. I prefer it to Alberta Springs

    All the likely suspects from Canada are making a rye now. I'm pretty sure the CC rye is the same distillate as the Wiser's rye (given the fact they're both made at the Hiram Walker plant on Riverside Drive in Windsor, Ontario) so I'm a bit suspect of it being special.

    To bad I didn't know about this in college, that was a short trip away. Nothing like those floating casinos and other establishments right across the boarder in Windsor.

    Yeah, the Windsor Ballet is of note.

    The warehouses are all out in the county farmland. Part of the security has always been swans as apparently they are viscous motherfuckers.

    The Windsor Ballet, ah wonderful. I am happy to see Bell's Beer making its way to the east coast. Was able to enjoy some recently. Now we just need Fat Tire this side of the Mississippi

    Casas de Bosque cabernet...

    I have two bottles left and will not be replacing them. That means I'm still looking for a daily red to get into. <$15
