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...

An Irish Buck

-ginger beer
-whiskey
-lemon wedge

Serve in highball glass with ice. Salt the rim if you want with rare blue Caspian Sea salt (or just table salt if you cant find it)

Buffalo Juice (a butter pepper sweet)

-whiskey
-root beer
-red jalapeno pepper (optional)

Fill highball halfway with ice. Pour in a little rootbeer, but leave 2 to 3 inches of ice showing. Level
the whiskey to the ice. Fill with root beer. Stir with a swizzle dick...

Optional Additions:

If you can stomach it, put a sweet red jalapeno wedge in this (squeeze a little juice in). Paprika mixed with a VERY slight bit of sugar can mimic as well if you dont want the heat. Cayenne works too

Have hot sauce and fresh sea salt nearby for sampling (knucle lick)

Having a pint of Guinness at the local Irish pub.

I think I’m going to spring for a dram of Redbreast 12.

A little sour apple goes good here too...

Just had a large glass of Weller 114 Wheated Whiskey with exactly one ice cube, and it feels as wonderfully as it tastes.

Compass Box's The Peat Monster.

This will conclude my foray into their whiskey range, as I'm pretty sure I've bought every variety available in town.

Patchez was right when he called them "brilliant blends". That they are.

Out of Asyla, Oak Cross, The Spaniard, and The Peat Monster, I would have to say that Oak Cross was my favorite, with Asyla coming in as a close second.

Also if anyone has Prime you should watch that Doc. Good info and another reason to raise a dram.

A dirty martini, with Gordon's gin and Martini & Rossi vermouth.
Gordon's was Hemingway's gin of choice. Good enough for Papa, good enough for me.

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.

Champagne cocktail Moderne: 1 oz. Makers, 1/2 T. simple, fill with cheap sparkling wine. Tiny umbrella and amusing hat optional. Because breakfast deserves something other than the perennial Bloody.

You know, that is mighty close to a Brutal Hammer, but with feminine class.

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.

Evan Williams.

Going to be doing a night after night comparison of the Old Crow vs Evan Williams hangover, sometime in the near future, when I have a whole weekend free of obligations.
