I like those. IPAs are just TOO MUCH...not much nuance.

Yesterday, we went to a friends house to watch the Masters. They made the Azalea Cocktail. It was very good.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 ounces gin
2 ounces pineapple juice
1 ounce lemon juice
1 teaspoon grenadine
Lemon wedge, to garnish

These are my go to beers; Stouts, Bocks, and Porters. Though I do like some Belgian ales. I can enjoy a sweeter style IPA.

If only gin didn't give me headaches. I love gin. That sounds really good. What is your gin of choice?

You can make it with vodka too. 

I am partial to Bombay.

I suppose gin gives it that extra flavor dimensions that the drink needs.

I’ve read that a 25% tariff on single malt Scotch and Irish whiskies goes into effect in a few days (October 18).

The Scottish Whisky Association said the United States is its largest single market and it is being unfairly targeted after a WTO ruling on Airbus.

 

Anyone going to buy a few bottles ahead? If so, which?

Or switch over to blends or American alternatives?

Honestly, if a few bucks one way or another mattered, I wouldn’t be drinking my  Macallan, or any other quality single malt in the first place...

Nice!  I enjoy a nice single malt.  

Have you ever tried Compass Box? While they are not a single malt they really make a very nice blend.  They are worth exploring

Haven’t tried it. Honestly, I find most blends to be a bit boring. Even some of the better ones.

I’ll keep an eye out for it though and give it a try if I run into the opportunity.

Well if by chance you are up this way I have a couple for you to try.  I would be happy to share them with you.

In the winter I continue to play golf, fortified with a flask of Laphroig.  But I can never get friends to sip it... they hate it... too salty, too peaty.  Though I once did get my caddie at Bandon Dunes to drink it.  Now that caddie had good taste!

Yep.  Lagavulin is another.  The Isle of Islay scotches are unique.  A lot of people don’t like the peat and astringent iodine.  Good stuff, but not a beginners whisky!   :-D

Laphroig is a wonderful dram 🙂

I like all the regions that produce single malt.  From the sultry seductive peaty to the refined sensual highlands.

I probably "enjoyed" far too many drinks last night. I guess that's what my body is telling me this morning. . 

One of the youngsters who grew up with our girls, celebrated her 40th birthday last night.....at a Sushi Bar. 

Whomever invented "Sake Bombs" was a great person. So is whoever invented "Aspirin" .

Some kind of red wine that's been sitting in the fridge half gone for a week.  Hate to pour it down the drain.  Probably cost me $10 for the bottle.

 

Best thing about being out of work other than golfing and crossfit everyday is being able to enjoy a drink every night.
