    Just mixed a Sidecar and damn it's good. I'm working my way through all the classic cocktails.

    Jack Daniels Honey. Rocks.

    Other than the occasional IPA, it's my favorite drink with a pipe. Along with a Spanish liqeur called quarenta y tres. Yum.

    Mohan's American Blended Whiskey on the rocks. It's a cheap local bottle sold by a local liquor store of the same name. Reminds me of Fleischman's... yeah, yeah, cheap, I know. But good golly I'm addicted! No apologies.

    Tonight is Crown Royal Maple. The ABC guy talked me into it and well, you have to like maple to be sure. I will dump it and maybe give the bottle away.

    Now down to the Whisky vault to see what I have.

    OK pitched the Maple. Cracked a Fighting Cock. Not bad at all. Slightly sweet, toasted marshmallow, caramel and a bit of a bite, think of a lighter Booker's. It is 103 proof and from Heaven Hill so not bad at all. Going to buy a big bottle. Drip of branch and 4 cubes.

    Remy Martin XO cognac.
    Unfortunately, it's not Louis XVI, but then, I'm not Bill Gates.
    A few years ago, while waiting for a flight from Ben-Gurion Airport, I visited the humidor in the James Richardon Duty Free shop and bought 5 boxes of Cuban Cigars. I was invited into their smoking lounge, was brought a bottle of Louis XVI and told I could have two shots. I told them that for the money I had spent, they could leave the bottle, which they did. I knocked off a third of it, and was a VERY happy flier that day...

    @ tbradsim Another limoncello fan! Isn't that stuff the best? Looks like bottled sunshine, tastes like homemade lemon pie filling and will bite you like a mean dog if you're not careful! I make quite a few bottles for summer and they usually claim a victim or two. You're right about the burn too but it is so good!

    Right at the moment, I'm sipping a really nice Pinot Grigio from Northern California and smoking a bowl of Peterson's Irish Whiskey.The wine isn't up to this delicious tobacco and is more a palate cleanser than anything else.

    Be careful what you wish for, as you just might get it.

    Were it me, I'd rather be drinking a bowl (or bucket) of Irish Whiskey and smoking some fancy tobacco who's name I can't pronounce but starts with a P and a G. You wine snob you

    Joking aside, I like a decent quality red wine, but the boxes are just so damned hard to open, I try and stick to hard liquor. Comes in a bottle and the corks pop out easy

    @ mikephillips Yeah I hear you! Not much of a wine drinker but the gal was over the other night and I wanted a bottle of the good stuff for her. She had one glass and its been sitting in the fridge for 3 days (and I'm too cheap to let booze go to waste) so I'm finishing up the bottle. It IS a pretty good palate cleanser too so this bowl o Irish Whiskey is tasting pretty good!

    I usually have a huge cup of tea with just sugar when smoking. This week I am trying Typhoo tea, after a sister in law from England said she prefers it to PG Tips.

    I like PG Tips better than Typhoo, but there are others that I like even more.

    So now I find myself "cellaring" tea!

    Cream Ale from my smallest brewery and the one I like to brew at the most. Light straw/gold color with low bitterness and very few esters. Just a nice light ale that is complementing the SG FVF that I'm smoking right now. Right at this particular moment, life is very very good.

    Yesterday it was Makers 46, not bad but it was just a more expensive Makers Mark. Not worth the extra bucks, get MM $10 cheaper.

    Tonight it is Old Weller Antique. Very nice, 1/2 branch as it is 107 proof with 8 cubes. This is heady caramel sweet spicy and marshmallow good. Of course it is Buffalo Trace so you know it is good. you could do this straight up but watch the after burn!

    Tonight is Abraham Bowman Limited Bourbon. This small batch 100 proof reminds me of the old A Smith Bowman's Fairfax County Bourbon, which was the whiskey of the US congress for many years. At first this new bourbon held up to branch but not to the cubes. It fell apart so not as many cubes next time. I found it sweet at first with honey, vanilla and caramel and finished sharp, no doubt to the higher proof. Overall good.

    I think the one blend I couldn't be without is Gawith Hoggarth Sweet Rum Twist
    "Traditional full bodied tobacco, hand-spun in to rope form. Can be enjoyed either as a chewing tobacco or pared with a knife for the pipe. A full flavoured, cool smoke. This sweet twist benefits from the addition of Rum."

    Cheap disgusting beer, but its 7%.

    Well, 1 out of 3 ain't bad, I guess

    I had a buddy I served with who'd buy a 12 pack of Pabst and a bottle of everclear, and would drop about a half ounce of everclear in every can as he drank it. He could usually make it through 5 or 6 beers before plowing the rug with his face and then of course we'd strip off his shirt and draw Kilroy cartoons all over him, from beltline to eyebrows. I don't know why that never seemed to get old.

    Anyway, for some reason your "cheap, disgusting 7%" beer reminded me of Stinky (his name was actually Stengel, but he liked mexican food quite a bit)
