    Some guy I work with keeps telling me about that french single malt. I give him no quarter, I always tell him he's doing it wrong, and ask him if he also drinks Italian beer . . .

    But Italian beer is good. Just don't drink Peroni. Baladin is pretty awesome. Up and coming region for craft beer

    Indesertum is correct. However, the Brenne is average, at best. A bit cloy. Was a gift, which I break out every now and then when I notice it at the back of the cupboard. Still enjoyable tho.

    2.5 oz La Quintinye Blanc
    0.5 oz Cointreau
    2-3 dashes Angostura

    some call it a "L'Orangerie". It's pretty good, but better with a dash or two of lemon juice and finished with a lemon twist, imo.

    Lost Sailor IPA, then a large pour of Abelour 12 year, then
    A'bunadh for contrast. Finishing on a high note.

    The range is good. But not easily used in cocktails. Quite unique taste. The blanc has intense citrus notes (tangerines etc) and menthol, I think.

    Found something nice and simple to do with yellow chartreuse. Bartender calls it "All Betts Are Off:" http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/...-beginners-chartreuse-dolin-drink-recipe.html

    • 1.5oz mezcal
    • .75 yellow chartreuse
    • .75 Dolin blanc
    • 2 dashes grapefruit bitters
    • grapefruit twist

    I'm sure grapefruit bitters would be better but I didn't have any so I used orange. I did have the grapefruit itself so I gave the peel the spray treatment and dropped it in.

    I've really enjoyed the few mezcal mixed drinks I've had but I still prefer to drink it as is. There was one failed drink actually, in New Haven where Bar served me a scotch and mezcal spirits driven drink. Yuck.
