    Blended Scotch Whisky

    I rotate between Famous Grouse, Grant's, and Ballantine as my inexpensive blends. Black Grouse is very nice as well. I *was* madly and deeply in love with Black Bottle but some heartless soul-eater decided it needed to be reformulated.

    Lagavulin 16yr

    As Lagavulin's prices have risen I've resorted to Caol Ila. Others disagree but I find it an acceptable alternative for (at least here) $35 less per bottle.

    Best Rye Whiskey

    I like the E. H. Taylor Straight Rye. Actually, I've liked everything from that label that I've had. Sazerac makes a solid rye. I have no beef with LDI whiskey. They make some really tasty stuff. Some companies are less forthcoming about the source of their liquid than I'd like.

    Preferred whisky glass?

    I have several of the glencairns in both shapes. I break them out when I'm trying to get to know a whiskey. If I'm drinking something that I don't care to study (most of the time in all honesty) I just break out a tumbler.

    SOTD- sheng of the day

    Now that we've had a cold snap down here I'm breaking into my sheng. Today's was from a sample of 2008 Xiaguan FT Mushroom tuo. My brewing needs work. I'm so very out of practice.

    OOTD- oolong of the day

    Some older Floating Leaves Taiwan Wuyi. I found a little stashed. A bit stale perhaps but still delightful.

    The Pawn Stars Rick Harrison advertises One Razor by Micro Touch on TV

    I just saw the ad this week. It was surreal to see DE shaving on TV.

    New Years Day - Black Eyed Peas

    I hate that band so much that I now dislike the food they were named for.

    Ramen vs. Pho

    I voted pho because my city is awash in amazing pho. I love both pretty equally. With pho the more nasty bits in it the better.

    Dillution Method Preferences

    I use bottled spring water when I need to lower the proof. My EH Taylor Barrel Proof is 135ish proof and I feel it needs a touch of water to come around flavor-wise.

    I hate Tito's and I'm in TX. I usually get Monopolowa.
