Rittenhouse Rye

I’ve been drinking a lot of Scotch lately, but you know what? Good old Rittenhouse Rye, I was reminded just tonight, is a damn fine whiskey.

    Whiskey is better then scotch anyhow. Now try some old granddad or elie kraig whiskey.

    On top of that eternal prison should be a December release. =D I’ve had to hold over with books like halting state and old mans war, who knows what ill pick up tonight.

    Scotch *is* whiskey, philistine!

    For bourbon, try George T. Stagg (http://www.bourbonwhiskey.com/antiquecollection.aspx). This stuff almost killed me when a friend sent a sample over. I may still be living some sort of owl Creek bridge Dream, lying on the floor with the flask in hand.

    New bourbons to try:

    Old Bardstown 10 yr Estate Bottled
    Old Charter 10

    Both great.

    Latest bottle to enter Diamat Towers:

    Caol Ila 12

    Guzzled around 1/3 of it already in a fit of greedy Islay-worshipping.

    Ah, more whiskies to sample! Thank you, my friend. I’ve peeked at your blog and am glad to hear the critters are back home without any obvious psychological damage. I am surrounded by softly twitching, snoozing felines as I write. in fact, my legs are numb as I am buried under them and cannot move. I may perish here.
