    Your 5 minutes were up a while ago. Perhaps you are up in the air a bit.

    if he likes spirits i think something a little different like armagnac or french or japanese whisky might be pretty cool.

    These two armagnacs are an amazing deal for a little over $100

    if you dont want to pay for shipping, check a local store and look around for laballe, boingneres, laberdolive, and d'arroze. its not too hard to find a 20 year old armagnac for around a $100

    michel courvreur is making some pretty amazing whisky out of burgundy

    grain whiskys are kind of making a come up. this one is fantastic from the other japanese distillery for a lot less than your budget. very unique

    Thanks guys. The botanist gin + that japanese grain whiskey look perfect... sadly I don't think I'll be able to find shit locally (thanks VA alcohol laws!). is klwines a good site?

    You might not be able to get spirits shipped to you, but yes, I've had many positive experiences with them. Leatherboot seems to be of a different opinion. YMMV.

    I have bought Scotch from K&L and had no problems....I just wouldn't buy wine from them if the weather is hot.

    It was good. I felt energized and full. I could see doing this in lieu of breakfast on occasion.


    That was my favorite pick-up of 2014. I bought 3 bottles. I can't believe they got more in. Buy this.

    It's nice. Just very dry. (just to clarifiy, that's not a bad thing, that's just what amontillado is.. I prefer other styles)

    That's true. I also have some Apostales Oloroso, but thought the Amontillado would cut through the fattiness of the pate a little better.

    Do you have the Matusalem (blend of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez)? It's great. The Palo Cortado (Apóstoles) is very nice too. As is the Pedro Ximénez (Noé).

    I've had the Matusalem before, it is really nice. I don't think I've ever seen the Noe, I'll have to look for it.

    Negronis, some La Bota de Manzanilla °32 and a bottle of Sierra Nevada Harvest Wet Hop IPA while watching the Oscars.

    Cross post with the tequila thread which is where I stole Huntsman's recipe from.

    Midnight in La Esquina:
    1.5 oz. Del Maguey Vida mezcal
    1 oz. Cocci Americano
    0.5 oz. Campari

    Smoky (unsurprisingly), complex, and more and more enjoyable as I drank it. I will definitely go back to it again. It had a beautiful rosy colour.
