Thanks Todd, they're fun to do. Just standard youtube enhancement tracks. I prefer to use vimeo, but right now the enhancer there is not working for me.

That glass of VS was followed by a L'Ancienne and an Obsello II.

Tonight..., a smidge more absinthe. :cheers:

Last night, found some Ridge Verte and Brevans H.R. Giger at a random French themed bar in my buddy's neighborhood.

 

I've been on board with the Ridge Blanche, but honestly wasn't sure what to make of Ridge Verte- something reminded me too much of L'Italienne(!) when buddhasynth gave me a taste of the first newly opened CO release- but now, I totally get it!

 

The Brevans Giger was a good revisit (it was my 4th absinthe ever), if this was a legit U.S./Tempus Fugit release, it definitely surpasses the U.S. bottle of badly star anisified Duplais I had not too long ago. Though the Brevans A.O Spare is my current favorite Matter offering by far.

 

Tonight: Negroni with Voyager.

I haven't had a bad bottle of Duplais yet.I bought a backup bottle about a year ago (still unopened).Hopefully it's not like you describe.

Tonight is a special night... My wife's mother and brother are flying in this afternoon (1st time in 2 years) so tonight, I'll be hosting my 1st absinthe tasting. I only have 5 to offer, but it'll be their 1st time, so I think it should be interesting.

 

Tonight's choices are: Marteau, Pacifique, Mansinthe, Vieux Pontarlier & Obsello II. This is 1st time I've felt excitement over a visit from the in-laws!

Mendocino Imperial Barleywine Ale. My first. Not great but not bad. And at 11% it'll sneak up on ya.

 

Old Stock ale is a barley wine style which is quite good. Great Divide makes Old Ruffian if memory serves me. Also good. I like Fullers vintage, but at the price, I don't get it as much anymore.

Midnight Sun Arctic Devil, and Firestone Walker Sucaba are two terrific barrel aged examples of the style.

While I can't get them where I'm at, I know NY carries the Firestone Walker beers and I intend to make use of that availability while up this summer.

After a long day of chainsawing and underbrushing an Ayinger Celebrator dopplebock followed by a Skullsplitter is hitting me right where I need it to most.

Wasn't sure if I wanted to drink, but then I logged on here. La Grenouille it is!

It's Jade Esprit Edouard tonight, which I haven't sipped for a couple of months. The wife is enjoying Cuervo 1800. I might take a bit of a tour this evening. The Eddy, then perhaps to the west coast with Marteau and/or Pacifique, maybe following up with a La Clandestine?

 

Yea, Manray's got his drinking socks on tonight. (Line courtesy of "My Favorite Year".)

Scored some pretty rare Tanqueray Malacca in a Kuntry state-run liquor store here in VA. First with just tonic and now with 5-10 dashes of Peychaud's. Trust me. It works. Feeling good here.
