    Hello there! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I genuinely enjoy reading through your articles.

    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects?
    Thanks for your time!

    Having been a bartender both in the U.S. and Europe and Harvard university-Wine Steward, I thought your organization would just be neo-phytes. However, I have found your contributors to be quite intelligent,informed, with fantastic recipes. It is quite enjoyable and informative. Thankyou so much.

    I like Bakers No7, but I think Bookers neat (at about 126 proof) is a very full flavored, well made Bourbon. I never mix it though, I prefer whiskey neat or with a splash of water.

    Dushan,
    You left one of the smoothest high proof wiskeies off the list. Thomas Handy Rye at 130 proof is exceptional, even neat. I've just tried it with 50/50 Italian vermouth (Stock) and the GM, WOW. Thanks, my new fav.

    Don't forget the again-available Lemon Hart 151-proof Demerara Rum, which has no substitute and is a crucial ingredient in many classic Tiki cocktails.
