Re: Review: Jameson Irish Whiskey Spectacular Double Bill

These are the times when I love my rather barbaric (by some standards) background. The best way to sample and explore a good spirit in my world is to keep it in its natural environment, that being in concert with a good cigar, a filthy book, a hearty sandwich and a roaring fire.

Re: Cork vs Screw Cap

ah, the venerable drip ring, for some circles, its considered almost a necessity, but in others, moreso like training wheels on a Harley Davidson motorbike. A good pouring technique will negate the need for a drip ring, but in some instances, a well made one can add a touch of class to any bottle. a...
