    I would get honey, lemon, and Drambuie. Must be an eastern european thing.

    By the way, I'm a single-malt scotch fan (could you guess?) - so I can assist with scotch-related questions - but I also got turned-on to good American whiskies/bourbons. Had a bottle of Jack Daniels single barrel at a cigar dinner, and it was quite good, but pricey. Now if I want a good bourbon for a decent price I'll get the Eagle Rare 10 yr single-barrel.

    I visited Wild Turkey, Woodford Reserve, and Jim Beam. I didn't have time to see them all, hopefully I can go back. I did buy 2 bottles at Wild Turkey and one at Woodford Reserve.

    Woodford Reserve was the one distillery we didn't get to tour, it stormed that afternoon. Instead we got a presentation with a free sample and bourbon balls. If you make it back I recommend Buffalo Trace, Four Roses, Makers Mark and the Kentucky Cooperage. People often forget the cooperage but that's where most of bourbon's flavor comes from!

    Sunday I had a "Paloma" for the first time. It's just 3 parts grapefruit soda and 1 part tequila. I actually had two, one made with Squirt and 1800 silver that was lame, and one made with Jarritos and 1800 reposado that was like a thousand tiny angels kissing my mouth's taint.

    OK, last night we went to a sushi joint in St Louis and I was drinking a few martinis. The Mrs thought it would be fun to do a couple of shots since they had a list of funny named shots. I forgot what this one was called, but it had bacon in it. [​IMG]
    It actually wasn't too bad. And it had bacon in it.

    Do jarheads drink it or just squirt it in their eye while doing shots?

    I'll talk uppity Bourbon and mention I got a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 15 Y.O. this year! No crazy lines, lotteries or price gouging to get it either. I heard rumors it was around locally; called a few stores and 20 minutes later I had it. Saving it for my birthday in 2 weeks :)

    They don't sell that in this state but they do sell the 23 year old stuff. I've tried it once but never spent the $250 for a bottle.

    Did I raise the uppity liquor bar too high? :D

    My latest bourbons since the Pappy has been Blantons (b-day present), 1792 Ridgemont Reserve, Eagle Rare (great deal, only $5 more than Buffalo Trace) and John J. Bowman Single Barrel (visited these guys in Fredericksburg, VA). It's been freakin' cold all winter so stiff drinks have been needed.

    You guys ever drink some Absinthe?

    My last few trips to the French Quarter, I indulged a bit.
    The Napoleon House for a Sazerac cocktail, and the Old Absinthe House, for some absinthe, of course.

    Good job resurrecting the thread. I didn't realize it was that old. And what happened to half these guys?

    Anyway, I have had absinthe a couple of times in the last year or so. Not a big fan, but it's a trendy thing today. My understanding is that absinthe was once deadly, hence the reputation. But today's version is only the same in name. Maybe someone can chime-in with accurate info.
