    Re: What Are You Drinking Tonight, Winter'07/'08

    Doing a comparative tasting of Islay scotches: Bunnahabhain 12, Caol Ila 12, Ardbeg 10, Laphroiag 10, Lagavulin 16.

    Bunnahabhain is the odd man out - much more sweet & floral than the others, with very little peat. I like it quite a bit.

    No strong conclusions yet on the other four, except that they're definitely different. Of the lot, have only had the Laphroiag 10 before, and enjoy it when I'm in the mood for a really peaty scotch. Caol Ila seems lighter than the other four - less peaty than the others, but still smoky.

    My taste buds are taking a beating so I am taking a break to let them recover a bit...

    EC12

    Once again, continuing my love / hate (or at least dislike) relationship with this expression.

    This (the current bottle) is a good one... nice rye notes and a medium-long finish. But will she shun me the next time?

    Anchor Steam with dinner.

    On to a Duchesse de Bourgogne.

    I believe the evening will conclude with a generous pour of WTRR 101.

    WT 101 Manhattan.

    Noilly Prat vermouth and for the first time Fee Brothers "old fashion aromatic bitters"

    The bitters arrived today from Surfas. I ordered both the "Old Fashion" and the "West Indian Orange". Man O Man, I really dig the "old Fashion" bitters. They have such an alluring spicy aroma. It reminds me of some spicy Christmas candy that I have only a faint childhood memory of. I can see where someone might add just a drop to a neat pour of something like Handy to increase that Christmas spice candy quality that the whiskey already has.

    ...........cheers........

    First meeting of the Lansing cards/boozin' club. Tasting included, in order:

    EC12 (first time tasting...I love it!)
    OC10 (still love this stuff...buddy disagreed).
    EW Black
    Buffalo Trace (always a favorite).

    Finishing with more EC12. Perchance I procured one of the rumored "good" bottles? I'm so happy with this purchase.

    Hey! Where's the Bowmore?? A little less peaty than Lagavulin to me.

    I'm having a little bit of the Lagavulin Distiller's Edition.

    I enjoyed it so much last night I had to do it again tonight. Yes another glass of the vatting 50/50 Weller 12 and the 1999 WTRB. I may mix these 2 bottles when they get to half!

    Pulled out my bottle of Blanton's Silver (98 proof). I dunno why but I like the silver better than regular Blanton's. Once I finish off the silver, I'll move on to my Gold.
