    Patron Silver straight (I store all my Patron including Anejo/Reposado/Platinum in the freezer). I still like Silver the best.

    i'm into the ambers-- scotch, irish and bourbon.

    for scotch, i gravitate toward highlands-- macallen and balvenie are my favorites.

    for irish, my hands down choice is redbreast.

    for bourbon, pappy van winkle or elijah craig 18 are preferred, but i just cracked a bottle of makers mark 46 which is quite pretty.

    with food, i drink beer. so many options..... we have a number of microbreweries around here, which we visit whenever we can. i like a good ipa, pale ale and scotch ale.

    slainte' to all-- deguelo

    Beer: La Fin Du Monde. It's a Tripel. Very strong and very delicious. Also like IPA's.

    Wine: The Prisoner. It's a blend (predominately Zin) by Orin Swift and its FANTASTIC. Best wine under $50 hands down IMO.

    Bourbon: Pappy 15 is my all time favorite. For an everyday drinking bourbon I like Weller 12 year, Makers or Bulleit.

    Hard stuff: Crown Royal on the rocks.

    Beer: Whatever I have brewed up and bottled lately. If I am out of home brew, I will pick up some Miller Lite or Sam Adams to get me by until I get another batch ready. Right now, I am drinking a nice orange cream ale I brewed!

    Paraphrasing Robert Louis Stevenson: the Kings o' drinks, as I conceive them, are Islay, Lowlands, Talisker, Ardmore, The MacAllan.

    I drink bourbon....... Good bourbon

    Everyday drink- W.L Weller Antique 107 proof (from the Buffalo Trace distillery)

    When I'm feeling good I have the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection on hand
    George T Stagg 143 proof consistently voted Worlds Best Bourbon (rye mash bill)
    William Larue Weller 126 proof (wheat mash bill)
    Thomas H Handey 126 proof straight rye
    All the above are barrel proof (no water added) unfiltered (none of the fats filtered out) straight from the barrel to the bottle

    I also have...
    Sazerac straight rye only 90 proof (cut and filtered) but 18 years old
    Van Winkle Lot "B" 90 proof
    Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 107 proof 15 years old

    In the picture the 2 bottles on the right are very special...
    The Eagle Rare is the original 10 year 101 proof out of production ~10 years and my last bottle

    The last one on the right is an Evan Williams 200th birthday "Parlor Decanter" put out in 1982, and one FINE drink, that is the last of 3 I found in a hole in the wall liquor store in a 1 road town in Georgia. I was on my way from out processing at Ft Benning to Missouri and stopped for the tour at Heaven Hill and was telling the tour guide about them and he wanted to see one so got one for him. He took it to show to the president and one of the owners Mr. Shapira, who came out to meet me and said he had heard of it but had never seen one, so I gave him a taste.

    In the second picture, yes that is a Cuban Cohiba Maduro #5

    And my Christmas present from the wife

    This works for me. Carlo Rossi Pisano (Italian red table wine) Guiness and Yuengling Lager and Yuengling Black and Tan. Yep,just a low class wine and beer guy.

    Glenfiddich 15YO neat. Used to like it on the rocks but finally evolved.

    Didn't mean to flake out on you all. Getting a case of old fezziwig? I've been trying to get one for years. That is now made at the PA brewery. It's one of the best beers to make chili with that I've ever tried
    The whole Noble Pils situation has me baffled as well. We only made about 2000 barrels of it last year. When it first came out we didn't make enough. The second year we made too much and it's sales dropped. It's one of my all-time favorites. Right now I'm really getting into Dark Depths. It's brewed with a Porter style grain bill, pitched with lager yeast, and dry hopped like an IPA. Good stuff. I just wanted to say Thank You for the support. I also want you to know that the things I discuss here are my own opinions. I do not speak officially for the company (bosses make me say that on internet forums).
    A couple new spirits made it home with me this weekend. I finally tried thr Glennfiddich (sp?) now I know what all the hubub is about. That's good stuff!
