What are you sipping these days?

Recommended Posts

We go on about cocktails and such but what are you sitting down with to sip on its own? Maybe with some liquid or solid water, maybe neat? A dash of something else, perhaps, who am I to make rules? I'm sure you know what I mean - for me it is something to contemplate, or keep me company while I contemplate the universe.

 

Today, I dug out my bottle of EL LADRÓN REPOSADO from Venus Spirits in Santa Cruz California. For me it is best in small amounts, neat. I am very happy.

For me it always seems to be WhistlePig or Singani (the Bolivian grape spirit).  Or for a change, Del Maguey Tobala.  And not to forget Glendalough Mountain Strength Poitin.  I'd add absinthe but I am out of the green fairy.   Towards the fall I might choose 12 year Laird's.

 

In the closet there are unopened old Martinique and Jamaican rums.  They may or may not go into mai tai's.  The aged Pusser's and Gosling's I've tried for sipping I do not enjoy.

 

Should I choose something sweet most likely it is Chartreuse V.E.P.  The color depending on my mood.

For the first time I am sitting down with a glass of La Favorite Vieux.  Compared to Neisson it tastes a little light -- even though the color is darker -- but then I notice it is only 40%.  If I can ever find the mai tai thread I will report on La Favorite Vieux in a mai tai.

Sipping a variety.   Bourbons, Barbados rum, Armagnac and malts during any given week or day.
