Couldn't justify anything on that page but the place had tons and tons and tons of whisk(e)ys from around the world. Wound up going with a 12 year uncut Weller. This place (Jack Rose in DC) made me wish I were rich. I've never seen such a ridiculous catalog of booze.
Think it, be it.

I definitely can't afford to drink like that, either, lol.  In DC it's probably our representatives and lobbyists rubbing elbows with them that are able to take advantage of it.

Back when I bartended, my favorite perk (and there were so many) was getting to try expensive and/or rare stuff I normally wouldn't even see.

First thing I ate here was chicken hearts in honor of said "representatives" of We the People.

That's a great perk. It wasn't long ago that I could afford, say, a bottle of George T Stagg. It's a shame that those days are long gone. Mezcal and tequila are next. I recommend stocking up.

Fortunately, I will always have a pipeline into Mexico for cheaper mezcal.  My father-in-law brings us bottles all the time.  His stepson knows the distributor of Alipús, so that's often what we get.  No complaints. lol

Hopefully Marcia's green card renewal paperwork will get processed sometime in the next millennium and we'll be able  to visit her family without fear of her not being allowed back in.

Nice!! Love Alipus. Hopefully the immigration stuff will get sorted favorably.
Think it, be it.

It’s going to be fine. Processing times are just even more glacially slow than usual because they’re spending all their resources separating families and what not...

Despicable. Caging people like animals and tearing families apart. I had hoped we were better than that.

Back OT, check this shit out. $1.1M for a bottle of hooch distilled in 1926 and bottled 60 years later.

Speaking of rare, this one’s getting tucked away until I can share with the son. I’d better hide it from myself...

Cassis Whiskey Sour
2 oz bourbon or rye
1 oz lemon (not pictured, last one)
3/4 oz cassis (next time I’d use 1)
1/2 oz simple (next time I’d use none)
1 egg white

Shake all but egg white with ice. Strain into glass, and dump ice. Add back to shaker and add egg white, shake. Strain. (Called “the reverse shake”)

Just had some Nikka from the barrel (on the rocks) last night. Haven't had japanese whiskey in about a year. Forgot how good even the cheapest japanese whiskey is

Nice OF and agreed.

This is a stunning combination. I bite a chunk and swish some sauce. Delicious.

Hitting up the “Bourye” which is a mix of bourbon and rye. It’s straightforward but good. Note the “untucked” in the background.

"Bloody Bitter"
2 oz gin (preferably barreled, or earthy, like Letherbee Autumn release)
1 oz Creme de Cassis
1/2 oz angostura bitters
1/4 oz Orange bitters
1/4 oz Peychaud's bitters

My riff on the much-loved "Sawyer Cocktail."  I think the Sawyer is technically a better drink, this one goes much more for the sweet/bitter interplay and is less balanced due to the lack of sour.  I've messing around with cassis, and may make this one again.  I highly recommend the Sawyer if you like gin and are looking for something truly different.
