    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    My last 1.5 oz of Parker's Heritage Collection 122.6 proof.
    I sipped a half ounce down to to get the final "taste memory", then I added a quarter ounce water.
    I spoke of this cut before.
    It works extremely well.

    Now I am finishing up a bottle of Charter 101, over cracked ice.
    This was a freebie and I split it with ACDetroit.
    The most positive thing I can say about this paricular bottle is that it was free.

    Should I have posted this in the "empty bottle support group" thread?

    4R small batch watching Stephanie Izard win Top Chef on Bravo TV. We used to love her restaurant, Scylla, in Bucktown before she changed the style and eventually closed it. Now, hopefully she'll open another restaurant in Chicago and go baack to her original style. Her cooking is the most creative and tasty we've ever had.
    She deserved the win and the title.

    Me, I'm still awaiting the 4R 120th to hit the Chicago stores.

    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    Was gifted earlier today some miscellaneous liquors from the distaff half of the couple who'd originally employed me in their liquor store almost 6 years ago (they sold the store, where I still work part-time, last November). She had inherited it from a great-uncle.
    Among the interesting items are:
    • Muirhead's Blended Scotch Whisky, a 4/5-quart bottle apparently from the mid-'60s, stamped as from the U.S. Air Force Open Mess. In both nose and palate, it is very malty, with virtually no peat displayed. The label describes it as 'extra light', which is accurate, with all sweetness and a warm-glowing, medium-long finish, despite its being only 80 proof. The bottle is about half-gone, and has likely been open a long time -- so is not at its best -- but there seems to be nothing at all wrong with the whisky, which is quite pleasant, if simple.
    • Seagram's Crown Royal Canadian whisky, also from the '60s, noting Waterloo on the label. The palate sense is as soft as that velvet bag these things come in (this one was pretty ratty, so I threw it out, along with what appeared to be the original box). The lack of any sense of alcohol makes this (and so many Canadians) easy to drink, but unremarkable. I haven't had a modern Crown Royal in some time, so am hard-pressed to compare it -- but if today's are this innocuous, or even moreso, I wonder why people bother. I was really hoping to be wowed by this older CR, but am disappointed to find it's just another nondescript Canadian blend.
    • There are a couple of more full/sealed Canadian blends: a 1970 Canadian Club pint from Walkerville; and a 1963 Seagram's VO pint from Waterloo that I will open at a later date. They're packaged in fake-book, gift-type boxes. But, I have enough (with several past bottles also opened) northern whisky unsealed at present that I think I'll just let these sit awhile.


    There also are a series of minis of what apparently are Spanish fortified wines from Bodegas de Quitapenas, Malaga, Spain, which also intrigue, and might be my next explorations from this box of 'goodies'.
