    Three leisurely pints of Young Henry's Old Masters Scottish Ale inspired by the current exhibition at the AGNSW. From their website "The resulting brew has a smooth, balanced sweet maltiness with a touch of oak while the earthy, spicy hops play second fiddle. In the glass its a the warm red colour." Find this kind of craft beer immensely enjoyable but its like sitting down to a three course meal and pub burgers Mrs GF and I had hit the spot.

    Now have to ensure that I get up and go to the gym in the morning.

    Finally tried Death's Door. Not sure why I hadn't. A bit stronger than average… had some nearly straight and then made a Negroni.

    Just before New Years I had a fun rye taste test with a couple friends.

    The rye used was Crown Royal Northern Harvest (of recent fame), Colonel EH Taylor rye, and 2011 Thomas Handy.

    I identified all of them (although it was mostly by alcohol level than anything else as they were at 45%, 50%, and 64.3% respectively). My favourite is the Colonel E.H. Taylor although all of them are delicious. (This biased opinion brought to you by someone whose favourite booze is rye).

    Archie Rose Signature Dry Gin & Tonic with a lot of ice and fresh lime. A small boutique distillery in Sydney which is a complex yet clean tasting botanical gin using native blood limes and wild herbs. Going for a tour of the distillery next week. Reminds me of Martin Miller gin.

    hard to miss Col. Taylor's, strongest rye grain flavor I've found in a regularly available bottle. I love it straight, in an old fashioned or Manhattan

    The Northern Harvest has a really spicy flavour as well. Really spicy. For the price (if you can find it now) it's definitely worth a bottle. It's made less than an hour from me so I'm a little bit of a CR apologist.
