    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    On a high proof night, OGD 114 followed by WLW BTAC '07.

    I'm going to sleep well.

    Old Charter 7yr 80 from 1993. For a hot evening this light but flavorful bourbon hits the spot.

    I am amazed at how cheap Australian wines are there......here there is a 29% tax on it then GST of 10% is added.
    Not sure if it's available in the US, but if you see Grant Burge Tawny Port it is worth grabbing.

    Scott, would you believe the Hardy's 'Whiskers Blake' I have on the shelf cost me all of c. $12.50 several years ago (if memory serves, it was 1999, in Louisville while en route to Detroit for the final series at Tiger Stadium). For whatever reason, I haven't opened it, but will move it to the front of the shelf.
    While I don't have any Burge Port, I DO have the Burge Family 'Wilsford Old Barossa Muscat' (500ml), which is marked at $54 -- but I grabbed for $20 when the only retailer in my area carrying it decided he needed shelf space for new items.

    Tim will soon have a bottle of Draytons Verdelho 'White Port' to add to his collection Direct from the Hunter Valley in Australia (We've just got to sort out the logistics of shipping to his area)

    Started with an old bottle of Pappy 15, I think I picked it up in 2004. Could really get some SW notes out of it tonight. Now a small pour of some OGD BIB with a Sierra Mist Chaser !

    I just paid $14.95 for another bottle. Great price!

    I love Burge wines. Holy Trinity is one of my favs. I'll keep an eye out for the port. Thanks!

    A pot-pourri. Being on holiday, I am allowing myself the luxury both of choice and "more than one". Some excellent U.S. micro beer. Some oaky California Chard (fixed with a dash of water), and a sip of a fruity blend called, mysteriously (to me), Conundrum. Oddly perhaps, the best drink I had today was a draft Pilsener Urquel served in impeccable condition thousands of miles from its home turf. How can a pasteurized beer sent far away from its brewing site display subtle notes of mellow yeast, spicy Saaz hops and juicy malt, all interleaved to perfection? Yet Urquel does this.

    Last night was a Gillman-recommended vatting of two ryes, BMH 18:Ritt BIB, 1:3. Quite good.

    Speaking of whom, he writes:

    Caymus came up with Conundrum back in the mid nineties, a blend of multiple grape types (at least six). Consistently good (always gets 88 or 89 from publications like The Wine Advocate) though a bit pricey ($22-27).

    It's spawned a number of imitators. Here in OR we have Sokol Blosser's "Evolution", which used to cost a little over $10 but is now closer to $20. Usually pretty good but the last release was a little off.

    My favorite bar back in FL was one that had PU on tap. It was always good. I'm guessing they ship the kegs over on reefer ships.
