What are you sipping today???

Postby BSinTX » Fri Jan 25, 2013 1:58 am

I thought it would be nice to have a place just to mention what you are sipping on at the moment, but don't want to go through with a full review or just want to share with everyone else.

I'm doing the AE Dor Opera Extra. I'm about 3/4 of the way through this bottle and am still impressed at how GOOD it smells (tastes pretty darned good, too!)

Great idea!

Just left a co-workers house playing pool. He had Remy VSOP for me, can't complain too much. It's 6 degrees outside...burrrrrr

Nice! I went with a very small pour of Tesseron 53 because it had been too long

This weekend, it's been back and forth between Leopold Gourmel 10 carats and Castarede 20YO. Sunday evening is being spent with Daniel Bouju BdF. This bottle will not survive the winter.

Those are excellent choices. Especially on the BdF :D

Tonight, I went with a few samples of whisky - a Karuizawa and Glendronach. The first was good, the second magical.

I've only got about 3 or 4 more pours from the AE DOR XO Extra (Opera) and the bottle will be gone. Strange as this may sound to some, I actually enjoy Cognac while sipping on green tea. I don't mix them, just sip on one, then go for the other.

I did a lot of training this weekend so not much sipping going on. Being that it's cold outside, I had to break out the Calvados (I put the review in the brandy forum). It doesn't go well with a cigar, so there was no tobacco to compliment.

After reading the K&L Spirits Journal today, I was in the mood for rum, so I went with the trifecta of Gosling's Old, the 151, and then the El Dorado 21. I keep forgetting how much I do enjoy a good, dark rum. :mrgreen:

Back to some Bouju TVBdF; it's been too long.
