I picked up a bottle of Ardbeg 10 YR to accompany the Laphroaig 10 YR I've got. I may be addicted to peat.

My husband ordered a Laphroaig one time. He was quite happy with it and had me try it. It tasted like I had licked the bottom of an ashtray. Serious inquiry, how do you do it? I am not a whiskey drinker due to long ago bad experience with -cough cough - Canadian Mist (can't even get it close to my nose without the gag reflex starting).

I find Laphroaig to be more day after bonfire smokiness and Ardbeg more ashy smoke personally. At any rate, the most common advice is not to dive deeply into the peat end as a newbie. Advice I ignored but I started with a 50 ml bottle so I figure if I didn't like it I wasn't going to be stuck with a full sized bottle I didn't want to drink. I swung for the fences and lucked out with a home run as far as my taste buds were concerned, it easily could have been an unpleasant experience but I went into it listening to people describe heavily peated whiskey and salivating so not quite as reckless as it could have been.
Serious inquiry, how do you do it?
I enjoy smoke is how I do it with regards to peat, I also enjoy the more vegetal qualities more restrained peat (or the undertones of stronger peat often has going on) tends to give it a kinda wet leaves on an autumn floor vibe. There is, once you get past fairly common flavors interesting nuances to tease out of a fair number of whiskies and I enjoy doing that. So sure, a pour of Larceny (a bourbon) has your standard vanilla and caramel but there is also nuts and fruit. I like doing tasting notes and I can share mine (I keep them in a Google Doc) if you're curious.

Hell, I'll just be preemptive: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1S1F ... sp=sharing

Ignore or peruse as is your wont. :)

I can understand that, I couldn't even eat Hot Tamales (the candy) for a long time after a bad experience with cinnamon schnapps.

Went to dinner last night at Taqueria 27. I opted for a Spicy Pineapple Margarita along with some Wagyu Beef tacos. It was excellent.

Currently - shocktop sunset orange. This one is a bit sweet. I prefer a regular shock top.

Last night, captain Morgan shots. Shocktop sunset orange, space ace fruit cider.

Red wine with Chilean sea bass in Canada and -11 degree weather.

This stuff serves as a refreshing change of pace from tried and true Diet Coke.

It also goes well with Chilean sea bass.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Thanks for sharing your tasting notes. Very interesting. Maybe someday!

A couple of years ago at the bar at the marina a guy was buying Fireball shots for his friends and the bartender told him it was my birthday, so he bought one for me (despite my protestations). Now, I know that's not REALLY whiskey, buttttttt.... It sat in front of me for about an hour before I got up the nerve to take a sip. Ugh. Finally just downed it so we could go back to the boat for the night. :? Not a fan.

What?

In Canada?

Doing a double header tonight. Right now I'm working on a dram of Aberlour 12 Year Old Double Cask Matured (a scotch) and I'll be following it with some Appleton Estate 12 Year Old Rare Blend (which will be my first sipping rum).

It's our office Christmas party and one of my colleagues brought in a big ice cream bucket full of bourbon slush. He isn't sharing the recipe, but it's delicious -- very citrus-y and just a little sweet.

Crap. I had to settle with Kobe hot dogs (made from the finest Kobe chickens, pigs, and rat droppings).

I'm drinking the usual right now... coke zero with fresh lemon and a splash of grenadine. Of course my doctor told me I should switch to coffee since it is better for you. She's a Mormon.

Rolled out of bed early this morning and made six batches of dough for Zeppoles and a pitcher of Apple Cider Sangria for later in the day.

Grabbed an iced coffee while at St. Judas the Traitor. Made some spaghetti sauce in the afternoon and started in on the pitcher of Apple Cider Sangria. Polished up a few glasses of that. Have to save some for tomorrow. It was soooo good! Now I'm pounding down some water.
