I've been on a manhattan kick the last few weeks. This week in particular has been brandy manhattans. Same thing as a regular manhattan, but brandy instead of rye. Quite a delicious alternative.

It is that! Rye for me as well, but a more modest but satisfying Pikesville 6 y.o.

An excellent choice! I really like the Triple Wood Laph, and am glad they brought it back. It ain't cheap, so not an everyday pour for me (Laph 10yo is that), but I almost always have a bottle in the cabinet.

Tonight for me......a brandy manhattan, or more accurately a cognac manhattan with Courvoisier VSOP. I go 2.5 parts brandy/cognac to 1 part sweet vermouth & 1/2 part of the brandied cherry juice. 3-4 dashes of Angostura bitters (these are outstanding....smell like Christmas to me), and another dash in the martini glass that I swirl around before pouring the drink. Add ingredients to shaker with crushed ice, stir briskly for 20-25 seconds, put strainer lid on & pour into martini glass. Garnish is 1-2 brandied maraschino cherries. Out-fucking-standing. About to have #2.

Older daughter brought me a bottle of this when she came back down from Thanksgiving - her boyfriend’s family lives up near the distillery.

fearsum, how is it? I have been considering the Bernheim wheat whisky for a couple of months.

Tonight, a couple of pours of the 'Holt, Buffalo Bayou Gingerbread Stout, and maybe a Maximus. Bacardi dark rum is in reserve for a possible eggnog project.

It is a nice change up from the Redbreast and cognac I usually have.

92 proof, so has a bit of bite. I’ve only had it straight up so far, and it will ikely improve with an ice cube Or maybe a few drops of distilled or rainwater water (just to keep the precious bodily fluids topped off)

It’s only 4 year old, and ~$40 - so I’d say give it a try...
