    Yeah, what Gib said. Different brands for different uses. I'm still stuck on NP for both sweet and dry at the moment but that manhattan I splurged on last week was with Antica. If I'm barrel aging a batch of manhattans I prefer Punt for some reason; it seems to thrive with the oxidation of barrel aging.

    I did a barrel aged Negroni with Punt e mes and it was ridiculously good.

    New martini recipe and I think a keeper.

    .5 oz Lillet Blanc
    .5 oz NP dry
    2.5 oz Reyka vodka
    1 oz Citadelle gin

    Stirred of course. Very, very good. I think this might be my new recipe.

    My bottle of 8 year Willett did not last long. The entire whisky club liked it also.

    The Willett 3 Year Rye is pretty excellent as well.

    Check out the prices on Willett at auction. I get the 8 yr for 70$ in MA and auction prices are in the hundreds of pounds.

    If you haven't tried this, or at least these ratios with different vodka and gin, you really should.

    I think this is somehow my first time having vintage port. I need to drink more vintage port.

    I'm going to miss this, apparently it's not being imported anymore. Don't recommend drinking a pint of it though...

    Seems like a fairly easy way to make money non? Where are they being sold like that? Grab a case, go there, give to someone to sell at auction and profit!

    Yes. Looking into that. Could be the buyers thinking it is a different release or it is the only way to get hands-on. I found high bids on a London based online auction. I don't believe I could ever profit considering the selection of hard to find bottlings. But I already bought several Willett to trade up with.

    I've only been drinking black coffee, herbal tea, and water for about a week. I'd been rapidly gaining weight.

    That's very close to Vesper ratios, which are 1:3.

    Agreed, very close to it. I started playing around with the Vesper ratio, and also the modifiers, and found with these brands this is just perfect for me. Change out the gin in particular and I'm sure I would end up with different ratios again.

    Little rum flight. Black Tot is good, but definitely not worth the price. I'd much rather spend way too much money on anything from Samaroli.

    Iced cold coffee!
    I liked it super cold to the extent that I'll have brain freeze every zip.

    This again while watching Johnny Depp in Black Mass. It's really a great recipe.
