A 1988 Beerenauslese.
Iced tea. Nothing like iced tea on a nice summer's day.
A couple fingers of Weller Antique 107 on ice.
I went to grab that at the local liquor store, but they and everyone else seems to be all out. I've heard it's great stuff.
A nice glass of Vinsanto (2010 Vinsanto del Chianti Classico) from the Antinori house. Not a Sauternes, but hits many notes.
It really is a very good 'wheated' bourbon for the price, ($40 here in Southern California) Hope you're able to find some up there in Ontario, cousin. Sorry about all the tar and feathering during our troubles with Mad King George. (grin)
No worries, all is forgiven. But yeah, I've heard it's really good stuff, and not just "for the price". For whatever it's worth, the Whiskey Bible gave it an incredibly high score of 96/100. And it was actually selling for $35 Canadian up here! Just a week ago there were still some stores close to me that had a few bottles, but all the stores around me have completely sold out. Maybe the word is getting out about just how good of a deal it is? I sure hope to snag a bottle sometime to find out for myself. Cheers.
Having a couple of these while shooting some poor quality video for this fun thread:
About two fingers of Deep Eddy orange vodka over ice.
Working on my second Rolling Rock whilst listening to some Rolling Stones,LOL.
(BTW the song is "Angie")
Finally a pale ale not overhopped!
Oh yeah,I've kept my hands off of my (unopened) bottle of Weller Antique till I have another bottle on hand.
Heck I've even gotten stingy with my (half full) Weller special reserve since all Weller products have gotten kinda scarce around here.
I make-do mostly by drinking Buffalo Trace -or- having some whiskey sours made with Gentleman Jack...
Ahhh, Rolling Rock from old Latrobe, Pa. We used to fill up a cooler with the seven ounce 'Pony' bottles before we went to work back when I was a roofer in the early '70s. Fun times. (grin)
I'm drinking a French 75 with Hendricks gin and prosecco instead of champagne. These go down like lemonade. Very dangerous to me.
