This is the way.
BLACKENED whiskey + mexican coke = winner for me.
Found one for $2 at Goodwill minutes before my wife cracked and told me she had already ordered me one along with a little sampler!
Come follow my super serious Scotch whisky instagram, I dare you
Decorated for Christmas yesterday and sipped some Larceny while basking in the Christmas tree glow with a log roasting on the tv.
Lol I did a review
Made my first Old Fashioned of the season
Enjoying a glass of High West Whiskey right now.
Double Rye is a solid go to.
Anyone know of any good monthly subscription services for whisky? Figured sample size bottles would be the easiest way to try stuff rather than getting a whole bottle
My wife got a me book of whisky cocktails a couple of months ago so I've been exploring some of those. A Rob Roy is a go-to for me atm (scotch/vermouth/bitters). Not attempted making my own old fashioned yet but I've always enjoyed them when I've had them out.
Nice way to wind down a Sunday
Did my first flight tonight. Glenmorangie 10, Aarbeg 10, and Lagavulin 16. Feeling good rn
Lagavulin is soooo good; Aarbeg as well. So smokey it's like you're literally drinking the peat bog itself, haha
Yeah it was like swallowing a smoke grenade lol especially after the Glenmorangie
A few weeks ago my parents spent two weeks in Florida (of all places to vacation right now, they had to choose Florida), so I spent those two weeks at their house housesitting their two dogs. So as a reward for taking care of the dogs (I thought it was just "whatever, sure"), my Mom brought back a bottle of Hibiki - this stuff is sooooo smooth and creamy, with a really nice palette of flavors that sticks around after. I think it does that because it's a blend from several different distilleries and types of casks, so it's really quite nice
"Hibiki Japanese Harmony is made with malt whiskies from the Yamazaki and Hakushu distilleries, as well as grain whisky from the Chita distillery. The whiskies are drawn from 5 different types of cask, including American white oak casks, Sherry casks and Mizunara oak casks. Color: Amber. Nose: Rose, lychee, hint of rosemary, mature woodiness, sandalwood. Palate: Honeylike sweetness, candied orange peel, white chocolate. Palate: Honeylike sweetness, candied orange peel, white chocolate"
Damn, sounds good. I see it all the time and I'm genuinely curious about Japanese whisky but I'm way too absorbed in the Scottish stuff at the moment lol
Heard good things about Hibiki, never had the chance to try it.
I’ve seen this at my liquor store. Gonna have to finally pull the trigger.
I want to try the Wee Beastie by Aardbeg. Only aged 5 years, supposedly tastes like tar, bacon, and chocolate lol. I'm sure I'll hate it
Decided to do a live tasting of this on instagram. Should be terrible
Man, this Hibiki is just soooo good; the flavor finish you get after you take a sip is just the most delicious, creamy/carmely flavor - perfect as a nightcap
