    Scotch whiskey is an acquired taste! You have to give it time.

    I was taught to numb the tongue with ice before sipping so you get less of the sting and more of the taste of the scotch, but that information should be reserved for the scotch thread.

    Just don't forget let it sit upright for a a day or two before drinking to let the sediment settle on the bottom. Also, drink it quickly! No need to let an old wine breathe.

    Has anyone else tried the 2007 Sighesio Zinfandel? It's ranked #10 on the current Wine Spectator Top 100 and it's excellent... and I am not usually a big Zin fan. I bought 6 bottles for $18 each in Las Vegas and I have been giving them out for Christmas this year. When I go back up there on Sunday I am buying a few more if I can still find them.

    Well, had a time all set to drink it, but there was a change of plans.

    Hopefully this week but not sure yet.

    I found a new favorite sub $10 wine this weekend.

    Menage a Trois Red from Costco. $7.50 a bottle.

    Subtle, smooth, a bit fruity, low tannins. Good.

    Hey, does anyone else have one of these? The Vinturi Wine Aerator:



    Have had mine for two weeks now, and it's OUTSTANDING!!!! You hold it over your glass (wtf this pic--look ma, no hands!) pour through, and it does just what it says, which is aerates/decants wine instantly and like nobody's business! I call it "the gurglator" for this amusing gurgling sound as wine passes through the chamber. But it makes a HUUUUUGE difference in the texture AND taste of wine. Especially young, tannic, brutish things. Opens them up and smooths them out considerably. A beautiful looking/feeling piece of equipment, and a great investment. They did an excellent job with this. I'm a gurglin' fool these days. Can't drink wine without it.

    BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!
