Just chewing the olive on my first cocktail: a dilltini (name subject to change) which is a martini with one less gin replaced with a dill aquavit made here in Wisconsin.
Next will be Tipsy's Obituary (name subject to change) which is a 50/50 gin and absinthe cocktail.
After that a Stone Brewing Fear Movie Lions double IPA.

I was probably drunk when I said that, but I meant it.

The second best thing about a shot of Malört is the face the bartender makes when you order it.

Also if anyone has Prime you should watch that Doc. Good info and another reason to raise a dram.
Is that the 16 you've got there? Hard to see from the pic.

There are some younger expressions of Lagavulin around these parts (8 and 12, I think).

I'm wondering if it would be educational to try some, to kind of "see" where the 16 comes from.

Anyways, I'll have to hunt down that documentary. Right up my alley.

This brief documentary is quite nice.
It's the 16.

The 8 is supposed to be great. I think the 12 is the Nick Offerman bottle.(edit- nope Nick's is an 11 y.o.) Sticks in my head there may have been a 10 floating around at one time. (edit- again nope. an 8, 12 and 16 are the main ones with the Offerman bottle at 11. After that they start getting too pricey to worry with.)

According to the doc the younger expressions show you more of the malt character and less of the barrel. The older it gets the more the barrel influences the whiskey. Makes sense.

That's pretty badass. One has a work place that allows exploration of booze, and the other is an explorer who knows his booze.

Me? I'm savoring this Kraken on top of blueberry pancakes. Kraken ®. It's not just for supper anymore.

Picked up a bottle of Clynelish 14. My frivolous spending on whiskey has been most enjoyable.

Anyways, this is an intense whiskey. Reminds me of WT101, being 92 proof and embodying significant spiciness and oakiness.
Oh God, my grandmother would kill me.

90 proof. 0ver 200 years in business, this is a good bourbon.
No fancy glassware, straight from the bottle. Sweet spicy peppery caramel baby!

You've got to try a bottle, I'm sort of in love. I should buy a case...

Quite affordable too!
Found myself in the Matrix and took the red pill. Now I want the blue pill and my bottle and leave me alone.

Old Man Winter ale. Made by Southern Tier. Nothing fancy, just something I look forward to every winter along with good strong porters and stouts. Granted it's not winter yet but looking out the window...

Nice. I haven't been disappointed by Southern Tier yet. They've delivered some pretty fine 22oz. bombers to the drinking folk over the years.
