Nick and Nora Charles drank martinis. Those girlie fu fu concoctions, are NOT, I repeat are NOT a martini. UNLESS you ride a rebadged LML.


Nora: Would you like a drink?
Nick: It's a little early, isn't it?
Nora: Too early for a drink?
Nick: No! Too early for stupid questions! Of course I want a drink!

Anyone in Shanghai up for some good rum tonight? Heading to Bounty tonight with some UK and Aussie mates... Then over to The Camel for quiz night! Rum, beer and trivia - what a combination...

Tonight I participate in a table quiz at the local library, which I guess does not include alcohol, but Sunday I had Absinthe for the first time since it was reapproved in EU a few years ago. All the really bad and dangerous drinking experiences from my youth were related to Absinthe. It was wonderful to taste it again. When it returned, I decided never to buy a bottle, but now I am not so sure.

When I was in Massa Marittima, during BellaItalia, I had some scotch at the hotel bar. It was a 16 yr old single malt, and it had a smoky flavor. I looked up some info online, and I think it was Lagavulin. Now I just have to find out where I can get it here in the Bluegrass.

I'm a fan of Bowmore Enigma 12 year for a good 50$ bottle scotch.

Now if we are talking all whiskies (not just scotch)...hands down my favorite is a boubon Pappies Van Winkle 20 year...smoothest whiskey that has touched my lips.

Back to beer. I'm fixing to crack a West 6th IPA, a local brew here in Lexington KY. There are two new breweries here, West 6th is the more commercial of the two, with a much larger capacity. The other one, Country Boy, has a tap room and sells growlers. The IPA is a powerhouse of a brew, with great flavor and an awesome kick!

Tossing back a few Makers Mark old Fashiioned's.

Got an email from a nearby Harley franchise that has a vast muesum of old bikes and muscle cars.

They are happy to get my scoot back up and running. Unreal how hard it is to get folks to even listen when you say 1962, followed by Vespa around here. Cheers!!!

Coffee tonight. Black. Strong. Caffeine.

I buy different blends regularly, but I've been coming back to good ol' supermarket variety Eight O'Clock Whole Bean Original Blend.

I dunno. Maybe my tastes in coffee are a bit pedestrian, but I'm thinking it's just a good old cuppa joe.

Glenfiddich. Neat.

Not entirely sure that Scotch agrees with me, or that I agree with Scotch. Seems worth a try, but I might not be a Scotch kind of guy.

It's the go to coffee consistently here. Made in a vacuum pot it's my favorite. Local lumber yardvsells it as a loss leader.

Just as well, on a $'s per glo basis. Make sure you get beyond Glenfiddich before giving up. If I could I'd still be dabbling in the port barrel aged varieties. I'm glad I had my cigar and scotch run when prices were 50-70% less. Popularity has driven the cst per glo skyward.

aha. Lagavulin is peaty and smoky with a marked iodine taste. Laphroiag even more so .. both single malts off the same side of Islay. Finish is quite strong iodine (strongest in Lahproaig).

If you want all that peaty smokiness, but with almost a 'creamy' finish and a bit more burnt toffee in the nose, try Ardbeg - also a single malt from Islay (but if you're near a scot, pronounce it Aard-VEG).

Life is short so I keep 'em both. Finished with Ardbeg last night, but that was after a very smooth Cabernet Sauvignon from "Hilltops" a wine region about 300 km south west of Sydney.

Ardbeg goes very well while listening to Sibelius ...

Thanks for the tip, Caroanbill. I did indeed procure some Laphroiag, and it is wonderful. I shall search out the Ardbeg.

We just started a batch of pomegranate wine. 33 pomegranates, 5 gallons of seeds, 2.5 gallons of must. Pitched the yeast last night, starting to get very fizzy this morning.

While waiting we are drinking hefeweizen.

Why wait until tonight?

My toes are cold, so I'm having a nip of Rye Whiskey.
Strictly for medicinal purposes, of course.
With a little luck, my toes will get cold again. Razz emoticon

It's never called 'Frisco'. It's either San Fran or the City.
