Last night I had dueling Pink Gins with the newly acquired Fords and Tanqueray Old Tom. The latter was the clear winner. I expected the sweetness of the Tanq, but it has a layer of spice that is spectacular. There's a different sort of sweetness altogether to the Fords, something that reminded me of ginger or galangal. I'm not going to be sipping this one, as it's rather one dimensional, but looking forward to mixing with it.

For me at the moment, a Balaklava special #1 (Jade 1901/Combier). A nice change from all the recent rum.

Dinner is not going well at all, my hands were shaking. So I made Mississippi punch. To which I almost added dashi rather than the lemon juice.
Just for fun I tried raspberry gum rather than plain sugar. The raspberry gum did not add much. I'm not sure the professor would approve, but I think he would have understood.
