    Had Jager shots right next to it...and regular glass bottles of local beer. I'd vote for it if it came to the ballot.

    Had a little absinthe over the weekend. Had drinks of Lucid, Delaware Phoenix Meadow of Love, and Ridge Blanche. All fantastic.

    Re: What non-whisk(e)y spirit are you drinking?

    Coincidentally, I picked up my first bottle of absinthe a week ago, opting for the Mata Hari, owing to its reasonable price, high proof, and attractive bottle. I don't have any competitors to compare it to, but I have enjoyed the scents and tastes that it adds to my Sazeracs (the mixed drink, not the product) -- plus, the part that coats the glass and is to be disposed of has very efficiently found itself disposed into Monkey Glands (the mixed drink, not the secreting organ of a simian).

    As a curiosity, I bought some Laird's 7 1/2yr old apple brandy yesterday, $19. Having a pour with my chicken parmesan. I dig it. An easy sipper, just a little light at 80 proof. Anyone have their bonded?

    I'm on my 2nd bottle of Laird's bonded. It's quite nice; it has some whiskey character but enough apple notes to let you know where it came from. Its a little hot, but an ice cube or two tones it down nicely. It also adds an interesting dimension to cocktails if you substitute it for part or all of the whiskey component.

    It has been a big hit with my friends as well. I brought my first bottle camping, along with a bottle of ER10, EC12, and Ridgemont Reserve, and the Laird's was the first to get finished. I haven't tried the 7.5yo Apple brandy though, so not sure how the two compare.
