That is a good example of an out-of-context sig quote.

As I have said before, the word "whisky" is pronounced "Laphroaig". 

And quarter cask Laphroaig is about $58 per bottle here.  Alas, my store was out of stock last time I was there so I am drinking Caol Ila.

Jens, I'd assume that if you like Laphroaig you like peaty whisky, in which case you'll love the quarter-cask. Imagine if somebody had poured a bottle of Laphroaig into a chunk of peat, let it sit there for a few years, and then wrung the peat out into a bottle.

This is my favourite thread, guys.

There's a Laphroaig 12 year old at work that stares at me every time I start my shift. I'm tempted to buy it but I know if I do, I won't appreciate it and will end up drinking it to get drunk.

Naturally you would be the one to point that out.

Well, according to Posh Escorts London, one night with an escort is about $3600-$4000. So if we are putting monetary value on my company I would say you are getting a pretty deal.

So bourbon.

I have a bottle of Elijah Craig. It was on sale for $17. I do not know what I did to make God smile upon me so, and it is not as nice as the Woodford Reserve I had a while ago but I cannot afford that now so this is what I am hoarding and keeping secret and safe and away from my unappreciative housemates.

On a whim, I also bought a $10 bottle of brandy. What the hell does one do with brandy? I tried some and it was... interesting. I made a hot toddy with tea, and it tasted like cough syrup. This makes me sad, because I always thought brandy would be tastier, and I took the recommendation of people working at the booze store when I picked this out. I know this is not the brandy thread, but seriously, what can I do with it?

Brandy butter. BRANDY BUTTER. BRANDY BUTTER.

It will be Christmas time. Christmas time is brandy time. If you are having Christmas pudding then serving it with brandy butter is essential. Also, when you serve the cake you douse it in brandy, turn off all the lights, and set it on fire, and it's spectacular and beautiful and pretty damn cool.

These are the things we do with brandy in my family.

I do not think we have ever done that in my family. Maybe I will start a new tradition! I think you also generally flambé things in brandy, right? I think I remember my granddad makes a pretty excellent banana flambé, so I will ask him.


Now I wonder what a bourbon cake would be like. I do not think I would want to set it on fire, though, even for the spectacle, because that would be a waste of bourbon.

The ridges in a bundt cake make it pretty sweet for lighting on fire. Also on the 'on fire' note, fry some cheese, flambee it in brandy, douse it with lemon juice, and you've got saganaki. Pretty delicious.

I have put bourbon in pretty much every baked good I've ever made, save maybe croissant, which I've only made twice to date. It is kind of my thing. I think you could maybe get away with flambeeing croissant or danish after they're baked? That could be a disaster.
Bourbon and chocolate go well together, but from my experience with brownies, I've found the best results with partitioning the batter into two halves, adding bourbon to only one half the batter, then pouring one in the pan first with the other one over top of it second. Maybe for a cake you would want to try gently marbling the batters together?

Many years ago my brother and I came up with an exciting new cocktail recipe. It's very easy. You take equal parts mead and tequila. You mix. You drink (in theory). We call it "the Celtic Conquistador", but it's also known as "the Bastard".

To date we have not been able to persuade anyone to try it. We are not foolish enough to do so ourselves. Like our fabled experimental facial hair, the "Bob Each Way", it appears destined to remain purely hypothetical.

At $10 a bottle, I'd tip it down the drain. Spend as much on a brandy as you would on a decent scotch, then you'll start to see what the fuss is about. And if you like your scotch peaty and smokey and with a proper smack-around-the-face to it, then buy an Armagnac, not a Cognac. Cognac is for wussy girlymen who can't handle their booze. Armagnac is where it's at.
