Nice Glencairn snifter of Laphroaig Cairdeas, neat, with a mineral water back. I've always said that their cask strength expressions are the best thing Laphroaig does, and it's certainly true of this one.

At a ridiculous $8.00 a bottle this stuff is a great sipper.

Out to dinner with the wifey at Superica and a Mescal Margherita has been set in front of me. Very tasty and I think I will attempt a replication as soon as I get home...

Maker's Mark.

I had a theory---the only time I'd tried Maker's before, I didn't drink much straight whiskey, and only Scotch. It seemed a bit .... sweet. But my tastes have broadened, and it IS really popular, and I do mostly take my whiskeys neat these days, so .... here I am.

It's not bad. Not as sweet (or as strong) as my memory of it, but not as deep, robust or complex as I generally like my bourbon. Still, it's easy drinking and very sippable.

Since missing out on the new Russell's Reserve 2002. I opened a bottle of a store pick Russels Single Barrel as a consolation. Man this is some good whiskey.

I have been getting reacquainted with Woodford Reserve bourbon. It was the first bourbon I branched out from Scotch into, on a friend's recommendation, and became my "house bourbon" for a couple of years after that.

Forgot how much I liked it!

If I run out of Woodford it's a damn emergency. It's the Clay house bourbon.
