Haven't got it yet but was just informed this morning that my bottle of Del Maguey Tobala along with a bottle of the Crema de Mezcal have just arrived. On my way to pick them up this evening if time permits!
Saturday night I managed to snag a bottle of Citadel Reserve 2010 gin and three bottles from the Buffalo Trace Single Oak project. I believe they are 61, 191 and one other that I can't recall at the moment. It will be my first foray into this little experiment. An expensive foray I must admit! Probably some content here about that project that I haven't had a chance to track down yet as a newbie.
Single Oak Project
Will likely use all of these new acquisitions to help celebrate the coming Labor Day weekend!
Never followed up on these from a couple of weeks ago so here are a couple of pictures.
Won't spoil anything with my thoughts on the 3 Single Oak Project bottles (61, 93 and 125). But one bottle is a bit lower so that might be a clue!
Also picked up the Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal and the Tobala Mezcal. The Tobala is quite remarkable!
Finally I picked up two bottles of the Citadelle Reserve gin and am glad I did! While there I also got this bottle of Cold River blueberry vodka
I had heard about. The aroma of blueberries is massive when the bottle is opened but it is not a syrupy sweet blueberry taste at all. Instead it is a remarkably dry bottle of vodka that is quiet pleasant to sip on the rocks. A bit like drinking a fresh blueberry muffin.
It has been a couple of weeks since my last trip so I am sure they are starting to miss me at the liquor store! All the talk on the forum the last couple of days on rum and aquavit lead me to head to the store to supplement my meager rum supply which consists of a bottle of Brugal, Myers dark and a half bottle of white Bacardi that could well be over 20 years old. Probably should use it to start my next fire in the fireplace!
Managed to pick up some rums that might be interesting to take for a test ride over the next couple of weeks; Rhum Barbancourt 8yo, El Dorado 15yo and Ron Zacapa Centenario 23yo.
While there I refreshed my Aperol supply since it was on sale along with a bottle of Cointreau that was also for sale. Couldn't resist trying a bottle of Cynar that comes up here in recipes so frequently. Also looked for aquavit and it turns out rlibkind was right. Both the Linie and the Aalborg taffel were readily available on the shelf today. Decided to pick up a bottle of the Linie to try for myself.
Already decided to try the Dark and Orangy tonight, probably using the Myers rum, so these latest acquisitions will have to wait for another evening.
So much liquor, so little time...
