    Yeah those are the ones.

    Using them for crushed ice is something I am going to try now. The though never occurred to me before.

    Yeh a couple good taps in the mortar and pestle and the cubes shard very nicely, you can get some really good jagged rocks, only down side of me discovering this was having to explain to the missus why I preffered this low tech approach over the very expensive vintage 1950s crusher she bought me

    Hah!
    To this day still I practice an annual ritual of taking a "mental health day" and starting it at home in bed watching Ferris Bueller, feels good!

    Any Aussies tried the new Jim Beam Signature or Distillers Masterpiece yet? They're not cheap ($75 and $250 respectively), but are definately unique imo.

    A real unique selection tonight thanks to a fellow member (a huge thanks!)... started with some WT Forgiven, then WT RR Barrel Proof 10yo, then some Stagg Jnr, and finished with a Beam Honey Mule. A great afternoon sampling for sure

    How'd you like the Stagg Jnr? Certainly is a big whiskey. On the beers all weekend here, went to a local brewery.

    Might get around to grabbing a bottle of Signature though unless the other bottle is in a bar, I won't be sampling.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Summer 2013

    Would like to try the 12 yr beam but dont want to buy a bottle, incidently the same goes for the WT forgiven, im by no means a tight arse but I dont imagine either would be good value, not saying I think they will be bad, just a principle thing, on the surface they seem like cash grabs and Im easily offended.

    Anyone having trouble getting EC12? My local has been out for almost a month, almost worried.
