The night couldn't get much better. I've shaved, showered, kids are in bed, and wife is out with the girls having a wine, and I'm sitting on the couch, a nice, neat Lagavulin 16 in the glass, Blood Simple DVD just started up...nice and quite around here. Love it.

DN, do you drink anything other than Lagavulin? Not knocking it, it's good stuff, just wandered if you ever went astray to say a JW blue?

I've not tried JW Blue. I've only tried Lagavulin and Macallan, as far as single malts are concerned. I'm going to get a bottle of Laphroaig next. I've heard its really good.

But I am somewhat partial to Lagavulin. What will a bottle of JW Blue set me back? JW Black is the highest level under that label, correct?

Last I heard a bottle of blue would probably be in the $190 - $200 range for 750ml. I've been fortunate enough that the last (2) bottles that I received were gifts. I only drink it when I'm feeling "sporty" or special occasions. My usual fare is Glenlivet 18. Try the Glenlivet 21 as well, great mellow smokiness with a ending flavor that sneaks up on you (man that's good). I actually prefer it over the 25yr.which seems a bit more spicey.

Glenlivet prices range 12yr-$45 15yr.-$75 18yr.-$100 21yr.-$160 and 25yr(or XXV) is around $300. There are many good single malts out there, so if you get a chance, try them all; I do. (MMMM-MMM good!)

For my scotch drinking friends, a little write-up that I found very interesting. I may try some of these other brands of scotch.

As stated above, so far, the only "good" scotch I've tried is The Lagavulin and The Macallan. This author really bends over backwards giving props to The Laphroaig. That will be my next bottle, a 15 year Laphroaig. Happy reading: http://www.charm.net/~kmarsh/scotch.html Oh, note the bottom where it says: Rating: from 1 to 10, 10 being best, 7 and up "good stuff", 4 to 6 good for mixed drinks, 0 to 3 for in-laws, unwanted guests and disinfection. A huge LOL over "in-laws, unwanted guests, and disinfection."

JW Blue Label is great. Then it goes JW Gold, JW Green, JW Black.

Tonight I'm drinking some caipirinhas that I've made. Lime wedges + sugar (muddled together)+ ice + cachaça (sugar cane alcohol).

We talked about gimlets earlier in this post, a caipirinha is the ultimate gimlet... the national drink of Brazil.

!yummy!

I was thinking of this thread a few minutes ago. I was looking through old Golf Digests (I think I was looking at an issue from late 2006) and saw an ad for Gentleman Jack. I've seen that drink many times, and even drank it a few times, but this ad in particular had it served in two martini glasses, one of which had a cherry in it. Any idea what this was?

It's been 20 yrs. but I remember such a drink served as you describe called a "Whiskey Martini". I don't recall the brand used or if Vermouth was used as in a regilar martini, though i have seen them.

Probably a Manhattan. Bourbon (or other American style whiskey), vermouth (usually sweet or sweet+dry), and Angostura bitters. Can be very good when made properly, sickly sweet when incorrect.

Tonight I'm having hot cocoa. No alcohol (except the rum in the 1/8 tsp of homemade vanilla extract...) but very good. It's the "Italian hot cocoa" in the Joy of Cooking---very thick and rich. Almost makes me wish I was somewhere with worse weather this week.....

You are correct. Manhattan is the correct term. As previously stated I wasn't sure on the vermouth but that was abouit it. Been a lone time for me, please excuse the brain - she ain't what she used to be.

Currently sipping Congac, trying to dr. a cold. And watching reruns on Golf Channel

a little something i discovered in b.a. argentina about two years back, its got two ingredients: fernet and coke, with a dash of lime juice if you like. man is it good. fernet is of czech origin i believe. it's a bitter aperitif with lots of tannin. it tastes pretty bad by itself, but with coke it's a tasty treat.

I've been drinking Bloody Mary this weekend, in addition to my regular Vodka-Seltzer w/ lime. My Bloody Mary recipe is: vodka, tomato juice, horseradish, habanero sauce, black pepper, fresh lime, olives, worcestershire. Next time I will opt for low-sodium ingredients as the saltiness was pretty intense.

    • After a quick 21-putt 9 holes in the Chicago cold yesterday, I found myself again frustrated with my poor distance control while putting. I’ve put in indoor putting practice time on improving my setup and stroke and have seen a definite improvement in my putting start lines. However, with limited space I have not been able to dedicate much time to distance control and that has always been a weakness. With partial wedges, many (myself included) have a system based on clubs & backswing lengths. With full swings I know approximate carry yardage buckets for all my clubs. And I have a golf watch to tell me exactly how far I am from the center of the green. Putting - I have rarely ever seen someone pace off a putt to know the exact distance to the hole.  And the prevailing advice for putting (and short chips) is to rely on feel and practice to hone it in - curious whether: 1. Anyone uses or has tried a sort of system for this?  2. Why the prevailing wisdom here differs so much from other golf skills, where technique is a primary target for improvement rather than feel/skills. I was considering experimenting with a few different putting backswing checkpoints to have some benchmarks I can refer to. Obviously, you would need to adjust to green speeds and slopes day-to-day but if the tempo of your stroke remained relatively consistent I think it could work.
