    You, my friend, know where to spend your money where spirits are concerned. Uniformly solid choices.

    Ugh. Try and get her to try some nice PX sherries, perhaps.

    Good call Huntsman. Totally agree with him, experiment with some Pedro Ximenez. I love wines that are made with a raisination technique. Amarones too.

    On the topic of personal bars, I've been thinking about investing into a liquor cabinet or something of the sort. Any suggestions on a bar set-up that works well, looks elegant, and won't bust the bank?

    As for functionality, I need something that can hold my glass and stemware, liquor collection, bar tools, and has a wine rack.

    I love vodka. What are some good lesser known brands? I've fell in love with and have been missing Wyborowa from back in the day when I was studying abroad in France. My best friends and I pretty much drank a fifth 2-3 times a week before going out. For 10E/bottle, and at that quality (at least I remember it as such), it blew my mind.

    Pravda and Chopin are two of my favorites.

    Tried Hangar One? Craft distilled, rather delicious.

    ^ Hangar One is very good vodka. I was initially sold by the marketing, the talk of craftsmanship, and fresh ingredients, all that stuff. However, once I tasted it, I was sold. It's amazing stuff.

    I just bought this today, based on something I read in the Wine Spectator. I have been a long time consumer of the regular Milagro, finding it to be a fantastic value. This won Best In Show of an international spirits contest. It is easier to sip neat, than any single malt I have ever tasted and is smoother than the Louie Trez I have. I highly recommend it, and with the distinctive bottle, plan to make it part of my menu of gifts.
