Re: What're you drinking right now?

Puttered around the cellar and pulled out a Rochefort 8, bottled on Sept. 14, 2005. More of a 10 person, so I'll have to hunt for my oldest bottle of that to see how they compare. At the moment, I'm under the impression I would've been happier cracking this open a couple of years ago, but it's stil...

Prodromus

Omnipollo Prodromus. For some reason I was expecting much sweeter, but there is a bitterness here that I find very appealing. My recollection of this is that is was very sweet, matching the desert flavour description on the can. I think it's taste perception - some people focus on the bold richness...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Godspeed IBUSHI - no wait, I pour that can and it is shockingly dark, foamy and red. WAAT? It's KEKKON. They mislabeled this can of the Raspberry Sour Anniversary Ale, wow its been a lucky week! Sorry Bim, I'm gonna drink these instead of returning them. It will be fun to see if each of them are Hel...

Teyssier 2016 Montagne-St-Émilion

Château Teyssier 2016 Montagne-St-Émilion (Merlot Blend) Here is a nice Right Bank Bordeaux with of course mostly Merlot in the blend and, in this case a bit of Cab Sauv and/or Cab Franc.. Very taut and stylish right when we open it, this can only get better with some air as there are dense, dark c...

Époque Terroir 2016 Bergerac Merlot/CabFranc

Époque Collection Terroir 2016 Bergerac Merlot/Cabernet Franc Here is basically a Bordeaux red really that isn't one. It's from the Southwest, it borders the region, and it shares both Bordelais grape types and often overlapping Terroir (clay-limestone soils.) The Merlot seems to dominate with an o...

La Crema 2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

La Crema 2016 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir This is OK - maybe needs aeration? - but it's a sweetish, excessively soft and slightly simplistic wine and for my purposes I don't know if it's all that good for even about half its price point. There is nice smooth berry and cherry, a little balancing acidity...

Bila-Haut L'esquerda 2017

Domaine de Bila-Haut L'esquerda 2017 Chapoutier makes some killer Languedoc-Roussillon (SE France) reds, including the lauded Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem and this L'Esquerda seems equally stellar. Loads of crushed ripe blackberry with a cherry acidity, wild blueberry, Some complex herbal and leather...

Goose Bourbon $22.95 Fri 29th Nov

The first Bourbon County I enjoyed was 10 years ago, staying in NYC. Got it at the Bowery and shared the small bottle. I think that was the best Bourbon County I had, ever. Had something extra going on. Bourbon Barrel imparts toasted-coconut and caramel-corn buttery flavors. Truly deep rich velvety ...

Bellhaven Twisted Thistle IPA There's a mix pack at the LC right now, six different brews including a Scottish Ale, a Scottish Oat Stout and a Speyside Oak Aged Blonde Ale.
