I'm taking a break from distilled spirits lately. This is a current favorite, at least until the local brewers release their stouts.

Just got a bottle of Angel's Envy, really enjoy it but I try not to buy it too often... Mostly because it goes too fast...

Has anyone tried Coconut Cartel? I've been seeing ads for it lately and it sounds pretty decent. Aged rum cut to proof with coconut water; Malibu Rum's smoother, more refined big brother...

I've seen a few of these in the Class 6 (military liquor store if you don't know) - I was wondering if it was any good. I'm a fan of Hendricks so guess I'll grab a bottle.

Absolutely not. I've had that a few times. And honestly it is over hyped and over priced. The Remy XO tastes better to me.
As long as you stick with at least VSOP, you won't go wrong.

If we get a bottle to take to the cabin in winter, we put it in the snow on the porch as soon as we arrive.

THEN we open the doors, light the fire, etc.

With Ohio being a liquor control state special bottles are sometimes by state lottery where you win the right to buy at MSRP (MSRP is only price for liquor in Ohio). I was lucky enough to win a CYPB and buy this for $46.

Traded it for this group. Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is one of my favorites for what they cost, both different years, Russell's reserves are all different store picks. Knob Creek is I think a 12 year store pick. Roughly $46 bottle turned into 6 at a roughly $400-$450 value. Can't bring myself to drink a $450 bottle.

Nice trade! I would take that all day long! No way would I keep the CYPB instead of those 6 bottles.

Is anyone here into champagne?

I recently tried a variety of $50 bottles and think the Vuelve Cliqout Yellow Label is the best.

Any other recomendations?

That's certainly our go-to bottle in that price range. Veuve Grande Dame is excellent, but about twice the price.

When we were in Napa a few years ago we visited the Schramsberg winery and did a cave tour - their sparkling wines are fantastic, IMO, but obviously not "champagne". There are some excellent Cavas out there, too, if you're open to other sparkling whites.

Here's a good article to help you explore a bit:
