You're making me real jealous here numen... Raspberries, how can you not love them ?

I have been drinking other spirits: Finally procured Pappy VW, I am think about trading my Hennessy Paradis for PVW 23 yr old. Thoughts?

My wife likes this one. Gentle smoke and surprisingly sweet.

Between the two, I'd much rather have the Hennessy. I've always thought that the PVW 23 was over-oaked.

Having some Domaine Chiroulet 15 yo to start the holidays. My first Armagnac from the Ténarèze region and it's quite good.

Finished a sprint triathlon today in 1:41:31 so I am rewarding my efforts with a newly opened bottle of Hardy Napoleon and some illegal contraband. It may take me a few weeks but I am going to do a head to head comparo with Hardy XO and Napoleon.

Congrats on your result, I'm really not a stamina guy, I admire your performance :D
Nice also to revive that thread a bit ! I'm finishing on my Delord bottles atm, enjoying it, really. And I'm settled on finishing my Blanton's Silver Edition, before switching to the Gold: I'm really looking forward to it, the Gold's much better !
Overall I have too few bourbon bottles to choose from in my cabinet, I need to find myself some more...

I just finished polishing my bottle of Delord l'Authentique together with a Bolivar petit corona: nice combination and very nice cigar brand, I really enjoy Bolivar cigars ! This one I believe had a few years already when I bought it and spent almost one year in my humidor, and it was flavoured but not aggressive at all in the first two thirds. The last third was a bit more powerful and I stopped at roughly one quarter of the end.
Viva Bolivar !

I agree, Bolivar cigars are FANTASTIC!! I have to check and see if I have any left....I smoke those at a much higher rate than most others.

I smoked a PSD#4 on Saturday and was sipping on Camus XO on Sunday. I decanted the last 200ml of this bottle into a smaller bottle and will hold it for a special occasion as Camus now produces the "Elegance" which doesn't do much for me.
