Stiegl Goldbrau Lager


Stiegl is a very fine brewery based in Salzburg, Austria, with a tradition of brewing since 1492. Stiegl means small steps, and this superb lager is worth drinking slowly to savour. Bright, light, and smooth with a classic bread and light hopped taste. — 3 months ago

Wilderness Trail

Bottled In Bond Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Finally...a small batch artisanal bourbon producer in Kentucky that hasn’t sold out or taken the easy road to market (like sourcing from MGP). Wheated, bonded, and improved thru modern science. Better than Pappy for 1/10th the cost. — 5 years ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1967

1st half ..Quite deep amber . Rich , barley sugar , touch caramel . So long and complete deep rich . Great intensity . Sweet but with great balancing acidity .
Second bottle lighter , took more time to open . Fresher , with touch more ripe caramelized peel , marmalade and creme brûlée, even more intense on the palate , acidity is higher but the richness and sweetness still there. Incredibly long. Tastes so young , needed time to open . More complexity . On the basis of this (half) bottle this can last another decade or more . The rating is for this second half , the first would have been 95. Drank at Noizé, London . First half had a level of VTS, the second BN.

The Classic Laddie Scottish Barley Unpeated Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Basic nonpeated Islay single malt. I feel simple malt aroma and taste with aggressive sea salt on tongue. It shots my mouth but goes away very quickly. — 4 years ago

Brauerei Heller Bamberg

Aecht Echlenferla Rauchbier Marzen


This was enjoyable. Smokey aroma, and then a nicely balanced dark beer with a smokey flavour created through the malted barley being kilned over a fire of beechwood logs.

This is, as the brewery says, a traditional German approach to brewing beer, but for all my years living in Germany I had not had a Rauchbier. More needed please bartender...

@Trixie You must try this if you should find a bottle.

Fiorano (Boncompagni Ludovisi)

Principe di Venosa Vino da Tavola White Blend 1992

Look at that color. Color of mushroom stock. And some of the smell and flavor. Also, barley tea and walnuts. Super oxidized. But surprisingly fresh on the palate, with bright acid. Sherried, long finish. Like three minutes of sherry-like finish. This is an oddball but delicious. One of three bottles I have in the cellar and one of the others is clearly not oxidized (actually looks like white wine) so I didn’t have high expectation for this bottle but it turned out to be tasty and enjoyable if you like this sort of thing. Don’t wait any longer though! — 3 years ago

@ESF thanks! I’ve actually never tried a young bottle, but now I’d love to. Bought these as they’re my fiancée Emily’s birth year, and this is the last night of birthday week :)

Dogfish Head Brewery

Olde School Barley Wine

Whoah ! Aged several years this is like a mellow tawny port. Raisins, prune, toffee, and tobacco. Put some of these away in your cellar and forget about them. — 5 years ago
