Cane Cola.

(A really tasty cola made with real sugar. It has a delightful spice to it.)

½ & ½ Isle of Jura Prophecy and Douglas Laing Big Peat... Really liked the manner in which the lingering sweetness of the first played off the Islay thrust of the second! The finish was all honey, smoke and bagfulls of brine.

Eagle Rare 10 Year Old ingle Barrel last night. I periodically return to this one, and am usually quite pleasantly surprised. This time around, spiced butterscotch tones came to the fore. And as always, the whiskey was neither too light or heavy in texture... Just a nicely balanced pour with a refreshing edge.

The first pours off the top of a freshly broached bottle of Compass Box The Spice Tree... Immediately obvious that this one's a winner, with a beautifully toasted Cognac-like sheen from the oak input adding considerable character to the malt sweetness. Love it!

Plenty. Highlight was the Archiv 69 Tomintoul. :thumbsup: Also tried the Galileo. It just isn't my thing. I'd avoid unless you are a fan of marsala

Based on the state of my head today, too much.

2 beers, and then 6 glasses of wine.

Beers: Two Brothers Domaine Dupage, then Two Brothers Atom Smasher.

Wine: I can't recall their names, but a Spanish Granache, a Spanish Tempranillo, then 47 friends House Red.

Found some things I cannot get out West...

-> Summit - Belgian Style Abby Ale - Batch 10

Image

--> Bell's - Porter

Image


Both good - but not outstanding - like the Summit better.


--> Boulder Beer Co -- Hazed and Infused - Dry Hopped Ale

A simple Highland Park 12 year old, which was preceded by a Glenmo original.
Still two of my favourites after all these years. 8)
