What do you drink, and how do you drink it?

BARREL AGED 24 AUG 17 #1 - C.JPG

It's been aging in a well used barrel for about 6 months now and is just starting to come around.


Nice Cranks, how did you have cider to run in February? :moresarcasm:

A mandarin liqueur I made in 2009.

It was a bit strong, better with an ice-cube.
With three ice-cubes, actually quite nice!

an "apple pie" variant I made

1 big apple
400ml 80%abv
handful of raisins
cinnimin stick and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, leave 1 month.

made up to 1L at 30%

it goes down scarily easily...... need to keep an eye on intake.

Last night was sipping a couple bourbons I wrote about in Tale of 2 Bourbons viewtopic.php?f=4&t=64655=60#p7449736

Both bourbons are out of the bbl's now and continuing to age in quart jars with a half stick of oak (1x1x2.5"). They are still getting better, darker, more caramel and vanilla from the small sticks. The new bbl one is mellowing out but still has that fresh wood oak hit, the other is just pure caramel. Both good but prefer the used wood, really caramelly vanilla sweet and smooth without that oak bite. Windy City prefers the old wood oak bourbon also, his comments are in that thread above.

Old bbl on right

You know what I would like to see? A sub forum created, dedicated to all the cordials and liquors you can make from nuetrals. A place to find the grand marnier recipie, Kalua, fire piss, etc. A cordial section. Would be nice in one place.

I like the idea as I have made a lot of very good liqueurs and love my Grand Marnier Recipe.


OK I'm a NOOB!
But a suggestion would be to have separate section for Recipes only, moving the sections dealing with recipes there.

A little bit of SCD's hand grenade honey bear bourbon.
It's damn good, better than my version I'm not too proud to say.
Pretty sure it's in his cuts, one jar more toward heads, one less toward tails.

Thanks for the inspiration, cheers!
