Knob Creek 9 Year Bourbon, Jefferson 10 Year Rye, Jim Beam Rye, Seeking a Good Rye

I found the 4 yr Willett down near Myrtle beach as well. It has supplanted Rendezvous as my favorite rye. Very easy to drink neat despite being 110 proof.

Favorite uses for St. Germain

Forbidden Fruit #2

A dead ringer for grapefruit, Barbados' "forbidden fruit"

1 oz Gin
1 oz Dry white wine, Sauvignon blanc
1⁄2 oz Elderflower liqueur, St. Germain
1⁄2 oz Lime juice
1⁄2 oz Agave syrup

Shake with ice, strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Friend likes JW Blue...what is equal but less $

If they are JW fans, then JW Gold 18 yr, also called the Centennary Blend, is the way to go. You should be able to get it for $80-90.

What are you drinking tonight?

The Last Word.

Now officially my favorite gin cocktail. A bit expensive to make because of the Chartreuse, but it's worth it.

What bourbon are you drinking these days?

Remember that as a single barrel product, EWSB will have variations from year to year as well as from different barrels within a year. So if you got a bottle you didn't like, I'd give it another try.

I might be wrong, but I think the EC21 hitting the shelves this fall is the first release.

Black in my rum!

Yeah, if they can identify that the type of plastic is safe and filter out the sediment, then maybe it's drinkable.

Black in my rum!

I wouldn't drink it. Various chemicals (such as BPA) can leach out of plastic bottles over time. Read this to see if your bottle is susceptible. -- http://trusted.md/blog/vreni_gurd/200...

Best easy drinking Rye for an Old-Fashioned Cocktail?

hi yankee, I got myself some Bulleit and Redemption ryes and totally agree with your assessment. Great sipping ryes. Both around $23 here in NJ.

Scotch along 95

Good to know. I will try to stop in next time I'm in CT. Sales tax is slightly lower as well (by 0.65%).

Scotch along 95

I like Total Wine in Cherry Hill NJ. Very large selection. Good prices, but their Scotch prices seem to have increased in the last 6 months. You can look their prices up online. www.totalwine.com

I second the Bulleit Rye suggestion.

bullet to the head, in that new movie, what drink does Sylvester Stallone request at the bar but the bar doesn't carry and then Stallone brings in his own bottle ?

I just picked up the Bulleit 95 Rye last week. Outstanding!

What's up with the price of Plymouth gin?

You might want to give Citadelle (France) a try. I get it for $17 in NJ and I don't think it has an equal at that price.

Anyone tried John Stetson Bourbon?

Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for it, but since I can get EC 12 for $23, it'll have to be really cheap for me to try it.

Scotch cocktails

Here's another I made which was inspired by the Departed, a newly posted cocktail - (http://www.kindredcocktails.com/cockt...). It also looks similar to the Knuckleduster (http://www.kindredcocktails.com/cockt...). In both cases, for mezcal, I substituted the smoky JW Double Black scotch.

Aye, Mon
1 oz. Dark Rum (Myers Jamaican)
0.5 oz. Scotch (Johnnie Walker Double Black)
1 oz. sweet vermouth (Punt e Mes)
0.5 oz. Campari
dash of orange bitters (Regan's)

Gingery George cocktail

I've used Stone's in a Mule: whiskey, lime, Stone's, over ice, top with ginger beer. Great summer drink.

Cardenal Mendoza Brandy

Quick search reveals it is a sipping brandy. Never had it, but it sounds interesting. Let us know how you like it.

On the hunt for Tanqueray Malacca...

Why don't you try going to your local liquor store and see if they would order it for you?

Scotch cocktails

That sounds good. I have all the ingedients but the Cocchi. Can't seem to find it (NJ). Can you recommend a substitue? I have Campari, Lillet Blanc and Aperol. Thinking about picking up some Ramazzotti.
