    Enjoyed some of the Citadelle Gin compliments of Snarkasm.

    This. gin. rocks.

    Imported from France, it's flavor is just... 'full'. The 19 botanicals really spice up the flavor. Best gin I've ever had (though I've really only had 3 different Gins)

    So. Good.

    Got to have a Bell's Winter White Ale yesterday. This is the first beer I've had from Bell's that isn't Oberon. They didn't disappoint, it's a very good beer. Wouldn't replace Oberon for me, but would definitely be welcome in my fridge.

    Ya'll know I like Blue Moon, but I found another beer like Blue Moon.
    It's called Shock Top and it's just as good. In a side by side taste test
    it's a hard call heck it's hard to tell which is which.
    So all the Blue Moon fans here give it a try :)

    Last night I had a Long Strange Tripe from the Boulevard Brewing Company. I tried it originally at a beer tasting, and I feel like I liked it better at that tasting than last night. It was hoppier than I remembered from the tasting. I think I prefer Boulevard Wheat. Also....Long Strange Tripe has triple the amount of alcohol in a normal beer. That might explain a few things from last night too..... :D

    White Grape Pomegranate Martinis are where it's at. Delicious. White Grape Vodka and Pomegranate martini mix. Tastes like Jolly Ranchers. :D

    Everyone needs to hit their favorite store for a bottle of Rogue Double Dead Guy Ale. It comes in a nice bright red bottle. I like it.

    So I picked up my first bottle of scotch.

    Pretty damn pleased with it too. I don't know much of the expected flavors, but it certainly has a great finish and has been a pretty great drink over the last couple weeks (our New Year's guests enjoyed it too!).

    Price point for me was $40, would certainly recommend it.

    Today I am drinking 2008 vintage Diet Coke. It's smooth, with a flavor reminiscent of years gone by.

    Add some coffee, whiskey, and whipped cream and you got yourself and Irish coffee. :] (Whiskey Optional)

    Optional? But then you'd be skipping out on the best part :)

    Canella Prosecco, vino spumante brut. Tasty stuff.

    Champagne glasses are entirely overrated. It's so much harder to break 10ga tempered glass bottles.

    Yeah, without the whiskey your Irish Coffee just turned into a Crapichino.

    As i live fairly close to this and the other distillery you mention Excellent choices and the current exchange rates make for great value for you :bigggrin:

    Not drinking tonight unless I can find a bottle of 150+ proof alcohol, go back in time a week and mix something in it to soak for a few days.

    Tonight. This was listed as a Caol Ila on the menu which was what sparked my interest. One of the better peated malts I've had since the Ardbeg Airigh Nam
