I usually buy patron silver but picked up a bottle of patron anejo. Extremely enjoyable and can just be sipped, I'm a huge fan.

Rearranged the Whiskey cabinet last night, I have way more than I thought. Currently working on a bottle of Devil's Cut, and this New Holland Beer Barrel Bourbon, that's aged in the Dragon's Milk barrels, stuff is so amazing, I have 4 bottles

More into wines than anything. Got about 60 bottles of assorted reds, whites and fruit wines. The larger wine fridge may not have been the best investment. It hasn't helped me keep track of my wine, just helped me buy more of it.

I've been working my way through a bottle of Devil's Cut for a while now. Surprisingly good for sipping. Got some Crown Royal, Jack Daniels, Gentleman Jack, Bushmills, some Georgia clear in a Mason jar (I know a guy with some land up there) Don Q limon. Some liquors as well. A few bottles of Irish cream, some Frangelico, Godiva white chocolate and a few others I can't remember, all of which are quite good in coffee. Also have a bottle of Scotch that was aged 18 years when my uncle brought it back from Ireland in 1982. Can't remember the name of it, but its not one that I've ever seen here in the states. That only comes out on special occasions.

I gotta admit I am drinking more wine too.

Don't like red, too bitter for me. But I don't mind white, fruity wines. And I seem to have less of a hangover than with beer (not saying I always drink a lot, but when I do happen to have an excess of it)

For those that don't like traditional red wines pick up a bottle of Apothic Red. Will run you around $10-$12 and is a blend of reds. It's a great everyday wine.



I found 4 bottles of their Dark Red which was a limited release a few years ago. It's really good too.

..maybe? I don't know too much about wines. I know I've had reds that were much more palatable than others.

My gf gets those all the time at the grocery store or Costco. Both the Apothic Red and White. I like the white. Also we got a bottle of their dark red but I don't think she has opened that one yet.

Blends are good stuff, Manage a trois is another great blend

Hmm, haven't tried the Apothic wines. Name sounds familiar though. I'll have to look for them next time at the grocery store, or Total Wine. If you like sweeter wines and have access to southern wines, I recommend finding a muscadime wine. Its a variety of grape that grows well in Florida. Lakeridge Southern White/Red or San Sebastian Vintners White/Red (same winery, different labels) are good cold. Like fridge cold. Its like drinking grape juice, but it'll get you hammered. Gf doesn't really care for them, but she's more into Merlot and Syrah. They're a bit full bodied for my taste. Valckenberg Dornfelder is good too. Nicely fruity without the bitterness you get from some reds.

I could go through a bottle of Pinot Grigio or Reisling with a meal though. I used to drink Schmidt Schone Kabinet Reisling with my grandma before she passed. I still have the last bottle we drank together.

For you wine drinkers, if you can score California made wine with a 2012 vintage the quality of the grapes is superb for that year.

^ - Overall it was a better year. Just make sure the grapes are all from the same year when buying. Brand won't make a huge difference.

Thanks! I'll have to look through the collection and see what I've got. Picked up another 8 bottles over the weekend. I'm officially about 2 bottles away from having a problem. On a side note, does anyone have or know of a good wine app for android? I'd like something that I can search for tasting notes while I'm in the store and allows me to catalog what I have with the ability to remove them as I drink them.

^ - A couple of years ago I was able to pick up the 15, 20, and 23. At the time there wasn't quite the following there is now...looking at some of the prices I kind of wish I held onto them instead of drinking them.

Edit - and by "a couple of years" I think I was actually still in law school so probably 2008.

Yeah...my friend said it was a $100 bottle when he got it, and its going for $1000 now.

But this stuff is made for drinking and Im glad Ive been able to partake in his generosity with some pappy a on couple of occasions, including this final one.

I've seen on the news a while back where Japan bought tons of wine from california (Like a few billions of dollars worth) . I wonder if that had an impact too.

I am very picky when it comes to red wine, with liqour or beer I can drink almost any of them. I'm like you I find most red wines are too bitter. As of now there's only 2 red wines that I like and can tolerate.

1 is called "Menage a Trois California Red Wine" that sells at walgreen for around $10

The 2nd red wine that I can drink is called "Campo Viejo" From Spain. About $10 at Walmart. I'm not going to Walmart right now with all the christmas shopper ofcourse, lol.

I've got an account at BevMo, but I'm too lazy to drive that far.

I'll look for it. I only drink 1 glass right before sleep. I have a much better sleep with a glass of wine. I try not to drink it every night, only on work days.

The Prisoner is pretty good. Orin Swift was doing it right and I'm pretty sure the company that took it over has kept everything going.

If you like The Prisoner, you'd probably like The Fugitive as well. Haven't personally tried it myself (although I have a bottle at home waiting to be opened) but the GF says its probably 95% as good and quite a bit less expensive.

BevMo did a lottery just to get a bottle of Pappy's. I think I would take a good scotch over that stuff for less money too.
