  1. from the link above Shai, did you see this?
  2. Wow... it's hard to follow Shabba and I've tried several of what he listed and most of the ones mentioned before, but here are three of my favorites: Aberlour - A'Bunadh Single Malt - bottled directly from sherry casks, its fairly complex, rich and smooth. Auchentoshen Three Wood Single Malt - aged in bourbon, sherry and Pedro Ximenez (not sure what that is) casks. It's very smooth and a long warm finish. This is a good starter single malt. Edradour 10 years old - bottled in small quantities and is sometimes hard to find (at least in my case). It has a smooth long finish with a nutty, almond-like aftertaste. edit: For you cigar folks. Just found this on the Auchentoshen site, "The pairing of Auchentoshan Three Wood Single Malt Scotch, together with Bolivar Inmensas, received the highest number of votes from nearly 300 international tasters in Havana, Cuba." and "The other whiskies shortlisted for the Cuban tasting included Aberlour A’Bunadh, Old Pulteney 12 Years Old and The Glenlivet 18 Years Old."
  3. Everytime you all talk about beer my eyes sort of glaze over. Never been a beer drinker. My first drink (which naturally was when I was 14 years old) was tequilla. Of course it was in the form of a tequila sunrise, but still, I started with hard stuff and never quite developed a taste for beer. When all my friends were enjoying their beers I was usually sitting there with some hard liquor drink, in most cases a Long Island ice tea. So other than providing too much information, tonight I am enjoying some Perique and a chicken vindaloo. For dessert some dark chocolate and at least two+ glasses of absinthe to participate vicariously in tonight's Green Hour KOSG, Gold68? Have a great time!
  4. Have an excellent birthday!
  5. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Never had a champagne cocktail, it is now on my must try list. Good observation on the fountain. I watched the vid before reading these posts. I saw the fountain but I've become so accustomed to having mine around it just seemed like a natural item in the background and I didn't think twice about it. Looking forward to seeing more!
  6. I agree with Dakini as well. I was perhaps fortunate enough to have started with a decent absinthe (UE68) and worked my way up from there. I haven't had anything that most here would label drain cleaner so my appreciation is only based going from good to better. Cheers on the decision to start with the Strong68 to strengthen your appreciation for the "good" stuff. I have become a fan of the Jade NO. The 1901 is also excellent as well as the Duplais and Balance. I like the Clandestine with sugar, prefer the Jades without and I oscillate with the Duplais depending on my mood. Hmmm, I'm thinking maybe I should increase my appreciation for good absinthe by attempting the sugar/fire ritual.....

  8. I know next to nothing about beer but I would say there is only one way to really find out. Pizza sounds like a good idea....
  9. Welcome Xrayspecs. The wait will be worth it
  10. There aren't enough scoundrels in her life... Have a great day Tayker
