Getting a bit of a late start here on the E Coast. I'm letting a bottle of that White Oak Cab air out a bit in the decanter, looking forward to kicking off the evening's festivities. Let the weekend begin!

Just finished some Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban (whiskey aged in Ruby Port casks). Now, Stone Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout from July 2008.

I love having my best friend over. He's an excuse to open everything.

The Quinta Ruban is tasty stuff, iirc. Try the Nectar d'Or if you get a chance...aged in Sauternes barriques.

Last night was a date night at home with a roast chicken, and we decided to have an "educational" wine night to go along with it.

https://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=326314 12yr White Burg from Garagiste was actually quite nice. Not much fruit beyond some faint green apple. A lot of nuts, some hints of caramel. Fell apart after about 3hrs.
https://www.cellartracker.com/wine.asp?iWine=1150080 Holy shnit - this was intense. Minerally, intense Menuier vintage bubbles that didn't neccesarily compliment the chicken, but was layered, and had a finish that lasted for minutes. Not a champagne for every day, but definitely a learning experience that I'm glad that I got to participate in.

Popped a bottle of the 07 Rockus Bockus a little bit ago. Probably not a good pairing with the salmon I am going to cook, but it might hold up since salmon is high in fat.

Attempting to make "cabernet burgers" on my girlfriend's charcoal grill. There is cabernet sauvignon mixed into the meat as well as in a glaze that goes on during grilling.

I'm thinking of pairing with a J. Rickards Zin from woot after I finish off the Cab that was used in the burgers (Solovino Cab from WTSO)

The Nectar d'Or is fabulous. I had a wee dram last night.

Grab a bottle of the Artein, if you can. It's excellent, too. ("an intriguing 15 Years Old Glenmorangie, extra

I have a feeling I will like the Nectar better. I enjoyed the Ruban a lot, but I'm more on the caramel/white fruit side than the berry side in fruit-accented whiskey.

Where are you folks sourcing this? BevMo here has it, but pricy. Applejack has it, but packing and shipping pretty much kills off their discount. Enjoy my Lagaluvin, but this is sounding pretty tasty.

BevMo. Drink for drink, cheaper than wine any day (since you drink so much less of it).

It was AWESOME! A lot of sediment in the bottle, but very fresh and vibrant and luscious. I shared it with 2 other couples, and we all enjoyed it. I was very surprised at how good it was.

WOW! What a bottle.

Also, best of luck at the Warrior Dash. We just had ours down here in Albuquerque. It was a beast, but over $1 Million went to St. Judes.
