    I am currently sipping a glass (or three, or four) of Puligny-Montrachet, a stunning white wine from Burgundy.

    Tonight I am drinking Jack Daniels “charcoal Mellowed” Tennessee Whisky. A Christmas gift from my daughter’s boyfriend. (That lad sure knows a way to his daughter’s father’s heart!) (still don’t like him )

    Great post - I enjoyed it and hope you enjoy your (gifted) whisky.

    Dare one ask why you don't much care for the lad?

    And a “DAFT MONK”. Surprisingly good. Although I have had a few!

    Terrific label; I hope the beer lives up to the promise of the label.

    Enjoy.

    No champagne for me, but I have said yes to a 40 year old tawny port.

    Forty year old tawny port going down so well that I may risk another.

    For the new year: 2002 Cristal, 2002 Dom Perignon (Andy Warhol Red Label), and 1990 Krug. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

    We had these, for the new year. I'm still not really into Champagne, but an old-enough vintage of Krug is pretty nice. I recently tried an '88, and it was great.

    Not really a fan of champagne, but good luck to those who enjoy it.

    Personally, I prefer a rich, robust red, (such as a Ripasso), or a good white Burgundy or Riesling.

    Y'know, I'm not a big fan either. I've had tasty Champagne (clearly), but it's absolutely nowhere as good other fine wines. It lacks the complexity of regular wine, but I guess that's the point: it's for celebration—not contemplation. (The tannins associated with Champagne also slightly trigger my gag reflex.)
    --- Post Merged, Jan 2, 2019 ---
    The Palmer was a great red. Although I prefer Burgundy over Bordeaux, this Bordeaux was old enough / well-aged. Full of sediment.

    Has anyone had Kilt Lifter? It's an Arizona beer. I just tried one over the holiday; it's fairly sweet, but it has a nice roasted taste and isn't too bitter.

    Hmm. Was not aware Neiman Marcus sold vintage wines.

    A Riesling - a dry Riesling - from Germany is keeping me company this evening.

    I had planned to have wine last night but ended up sipping beer (Trappistes Rochefort 8) with the carer and her friend (they also sipped and savoured Belgian beer).

    Ah, Yellow Spot.

    A lovely whiskey, smooth and mellow.

    Agree re the preference for Burgundy over Bordeaux, and I prefer a good white Burgundy, or proper Chateauneuf-du-Pape (or Ripasso) or St-Emilion to any Champagne.

    Currently sipping the wonderful CBS from Founders.
