Malheur Golden Ale
Had a chance to sample this beer in NYC and Ioved it! Gotta find it again so I can have another taste!
Rooftop Beer (Brooklyn Brewery) - Gallow Green
In Chelsea there is a rooftop bar/eatery called Gallow Green. Its a really hip place with pretty people, and the food, drinks are good too!
I had the absolute pleasure of getting my hands (Thanks M) on a bottle of 40yr Glenfarclas. It was for my birthday that just passed and I invited some close friends to have a dram with me to celebrate. There was about 13-14 of us and we all got to taste what this fantastic distillery created. It was surprisingly bold, refined and a new challenge in my scotch adventure. I loved it and if you ever have a chance to taste it, please do.
Crown Royal XR
The best Crown Royal creates in this extra rare blend. The distillery has since burned to the ground making this a once in a lifetime treat. The finish is fantastic and sweet like you would expect. If you have a chance to try it, do it.
The Glenfarclas highland malt 25yr is currently my favorite scotch. The smooth finish and sweet taste are exactly what I look for in a scotch. Each of the single malts are great and this bottle remains a staple in the Chavez house.
I love red wine and my favorite type is currently a Tempranillo from Spain. The finish is similar to a Malbec but somehow smoother and lighter. I was turned on to this wine by my friend (and whom I respect for his taste) Eryck Chairez.
My favorite amber beer. Smooth, tasty, and tastes excellent when super cold.
Glass of Scotch
Nothing beats it in my book, preferred on rocks with a water back.
Pints of Guinness
I love Guinness and I especially love it when my woman and I share a glass together. Its the absolute best way to end a meal or evening. And its good for you!
Beautiful color and composition. The beer is literally a bouquet of smells that comfort you as you drink it. Have a glass next time you can.
Beer with friends
The best way to enjoy a day. I like mine with "no junk" in it though as depicted here in this photo.
