Because I live in the Florida Panhandle, it has to be “Red Neck Riviera,” 🥃.

Lagavulin 8yo for relaxing after the track this weekend (in the room Jackie Stewart used to use, or so I'm told by the owners). Way smoother than my driving.

yep. ive also found that once the bottle is opened and breathes a little bit, the flavors can improve dramatically.

i'm not a huge fan of their american whiskey or the sourmash, but the ryes and bourbons range from good to excellent (barrel strength rye!!!)

I'm working on a cocktail project, so it's a little Woodford, Jack, Grand Marnier, Diplomatico Anejo, and then moving onto Hendricks. I love my job!

I'm also giving the 8 year a go. I'm a huge fan of the 16 year but for half the price I'm pleased with the 8 year and could see it becoming my daily driver.

Lagavulin 16 is in a class all its own, but I find that in general my preference often goes towards younger versions, c.8-12yo or those w/o age statement (usually blending youngsters w/ the old). The 18yo+ versions are nice, but seldom enough to move into my regular rotation. And even more than age, I'm finding that I REALLY prefer non-chill filtered versions, like Ardbeg, Laphroaig Cask strength and Quarter Cask, Bruichladdich, etc.

And speaking of things in the daily rotation, ++ for the B52's reference.

So I read about this place that has great food and daily RUM tastings in St John: ASOLARE

And definitely try some Cruzan Single Barrel. This is the brands home base.


This their most award winning RUM. I haven't located any yet. But judging by the reviews, it's really good. Hope you all have big fun!

Bruichladdich is one of my favorite along side Ardbeg Kelpie. I'm glad I found this thread, going to have to try some of the recommendations.

I like to think of that as "the rum drinker's tequila". You're right, it's quite tasty.

Cruzan has tours, but they appear to be on St. Croix. Day trip! Just looking at their listing, am getting curious about their Black Strap!
