Nice! Expect notes on both.

As for the Balvenie, definitely a lot of sherry in the nose (the last few months of maturation is done in first-fill sherry casks). Dates and honey underneath.

Creamy smooth mouthfeel...

Taste is sweet and mildly citrus, something like lemon drops. Definitely a Speysider -- you always read about that "honeyed sweetness;" that's dominant here, but the sherry adds a dusky layer ... and there's a little bit of cinnamon-roasted almonds in the burn.

This is extremely pleasant stuff. Easy to love.

Just had a ton of work to do, and figured I'd get in some self-experimentation at the same time.

This was my reasoning too, in addition to some slightly troubling medical stuff that ended up being nothing to worry about. I won't say it hugely affected my day-to-day, but I did sleep a lot better and, obviously, didn't have a hangover for about three weeks. And it's since been much easier to scale it back to 2-3 times a week.

Today I got a bottle of the Bruery's Autumn Maple Belgian-style brown (to me that means sour, but I don't think that's what they're getting at). It's brewed with yams. It's also 10.5%; gonna stick it in the back of the closet till next autumn, maybe.

Yeah, that's the plot.

Maybe 3-4.  But you know.  A little less.

I think Flanders-style brown is more directly suggestive of sour than Belgian, maybe?

Well, yes and no. Technically Belgian brown isn't a recognized discrete style, so you could be talking about a number of things. You could mean some manner of dubbel, which is usually amber-reddish, or you could mean a brown ale made with dark malts that's been fermented with a Belgian yeast strain and thus has a more estery or fruity quality. Or you could mean a Flanders ale or bruin, in which case you do mean sour. In this case I suspect they mean the second possibility.

So I finished up last night with a Sazerac, right? And you're supposed to coat the glass with Absinthe, then pour it out, but it pains me to waste that shit, so I just drank it instead. And I'm not saying that's the only reason I woke up with a headache from HELL, but it couldn't have helped.

Really happy with the Balvenie, though. I had my second dram with a little water added and decided to stick with neat in the future.

Funny, I've had the same bottle of absinthe for more than a year and only use it for making Sazeracs. I don't feel the least bit bad about chucking that few drops.

I've instituted a strict moratorium on future liquor purchases. Kinda went nuts for a little while there and I'm only drinking a few ounces a week anyway so my bar has gotten mad crowded. Still it's nice to have a wide assortment of spirits that I can selectively replenish a few times a year. All of which is to say I bought a bottle of Booker's today. About to have a taste.

I have three bottles of absinthe in my cupboard, in various states of consumption.

Jimbo, did you know about this? --> http://www.twobrosbrew.com/gluten.htm

Evidently Two Brothers' Prairie Path golden ale is technically gluten-free, because an enzyme they were experimenting with as an organic/vegan method for combating chill haze denatures gluten along with the protein molecules that cause the haze. Why would anyone drink that bullshit buckwheat beer if this were true?

I had no idea and I will definitely look into that later 'cause you know my mom and sister are both on GF diets and though my mom is not a drinker, and beer would not be her choice if she was, there's still hope for my sister Smile

I just bought a bottle of gin! I hardly ever buy bottles of spirits so I'm real excited. Also I've been given the longterm loan of a piano accordion, and plan to recreate the opening chapter of McTeague (minus the dentistry) with these two things.

Remember that time we talked about McTeague and animals? We should pitch in and jointly purchase a giant gold tooth and put it in front of houses in alternating years.

Yeah it's a "whiskey-flavored liqueur"

is an American liqueur made from neutral spirits with fruit, spice and whiskey flavourings.[1] The brand was originally created by bartender Martin Wilkes Heron in New Orleans in 1874,[citation needed] and is now owned by the Brown-Forman Corporation. Although the original product contained whiskey, the current formula for Southern Comfort only contains whiskey-tasting flavouring rather than actual whiskey (except for the premium version called "Special Reserve").[1]
