That ginger concoction from Powell and Mahoney looks good. Have you tried any of their other products?

Their Bloody Mary sucks...I mean really, really, really sucks. I paid for the bottle and shipping so I will jazz it up and use it up, but if I had paid $5 or less I would pour it out. I also purchased their Margarita, but haven't used any of it yet. It better be good!

It only takes a splash of the ginger in a drink. It is spicy and nice.

I am looking forward to it.  We have been using Q Ginger Beer in mixed drinks lately.  It makes a spicy hot cocktail.

I am glad I asked, as that is what I was thinking of adding.

Town Branch is solid Bourbon. The bottle weighs a metric crapload. Took me awhile to pick up a bottle and get to it in the queue, but it is pretty tasty. I think it was about $35 and change.

I am enjoying a cocktail now that is made up of Corner Creek Reserve Bourbon, Bitter Truth Own Decanter Bitters, Q Ginger Beer and a slice of lime.  I may have to make another.

Ok, so without going back through this whole thread, I know I saw a suggestion for Templeton Rye. Thank you for that suggestion, the wife and I are loving it. Found a bottle down here on Marco Island, FL. Just what we needed for a nightcap. A great little sipper. In keeping with recent posts, for me, it was a little harsh neat, but opened up and was a pleasure to sip on a couple large rocks.

I like a good bourbon and ginger- and a sazerac too. Will try some peychauds in my next B&G! And I mean, like- right now.

So today I picked up a Balvenie Double Wood in SC for $55 and a Four Roses Single Barrel Barrel Strength for $65. Looking forward to both!

I'll be curious to see what you think of the Balvenie. It actually spends part of its aging in bourbon barrels. It's tasty.

At $70 (NC prices) it was a ?, at $55 (SC prices) it is a no brainer. ;)

It'll be in the queue for awhile before it comes up to bat.

Too funny Frank. Got a bottle as gift over holidays...cracking it open tonight.
