Viognier, a varietal I have not yet tried. What did you have for lunch (I mean, the non-liquid part).

I had a packet of spatzle I boiled and then mixed some fresh herbs and olive oil through. Protein was from a couple of grilled and shredded chicken breasts that had been marinating in paprika and garlic for an hour. It was just about passable. The viognier wasn't great either. But right now it's more about calories than anything else. Just over one month ago I had a partial meniscectomy on my knee. That meant no exercise for the last four weeks - the longest I've gone without training since I was about 17. Anyway, I had to adjust my diet, but I managed to keep my bodyweight around 156 lbs throughout. And this week I expect to get the all clear to ease my way into working out again.

I’m drinking some sweet tea at the moment.

Peets ground coffee was on a good sale at the supermarket, so I'm not drinking supermarket coffee this week. :)

I brought a pack of these up the road from darn sarf and I'll have one with my tuna sandwich.

Sarge

Viognier is sex in a bottle--one of the most outrageously sensual, sleek, taught, spicy, and tasty varietals on the planet--grown in miniscule quantities in Rhone. The problem is that it is pretty picky with food pairings. Most Asian food, especially Thai is a great match.

Now, I need suggestions for Armagnac! puhleeeeeeze! (and I don't want to pay a fortune)

Looks appealing.

I think that must be export labeling because here there are rules about “bourbon”. Must be at least 50% corn mash, must be aged in new oak, and must be Kentucky. None of this Tennessee nonsense.

Dickel's is a pretty good a Tennessee bourbon whisky.

I'm nuts about it. It has changed my life.  0:)
  Actually, we have a Costco in my town. Probably mostly same stuff as in yours...

  Surprising! I wonder how Kentucky managed to swing that? I can see how real champaigne must come from a specific region of France because of soil, grapes, etc., but what about Tennessee (or Bolivia) would make it inconducive to distillation of mash?

Edit: According to Wikipedia, Bourbon can be made anywhere in US, but 95% is from Kentucky.

I'd like to have suggestions also. I can't remember the last time I had Armagnac. Currently drinking (well, not at this moment, but in the last few days after dinner) Cognac: Courvoisier V.S.O.P.

Interesting. My thought was how did the barrel makers swing it, since the barrel must be new. So the used ones are sold,  often for Scotch.

Brought this from Madrid for my relatives in the Canary Islands. We had it yesterday (after a lunch I cooked for them) and it was stupendous—the whisky and the food I prepared  ;).

Unless you're drinking Mountanos Brothers Decaf French Roast "Dark Italian" (and drinking it black), you're frittering away your life.

And I still need some recommendations for Armagnac

Am I?  I don't feel like it . . .

Thread Duty:

(Not this morning, obviously) Local (to New England), a Maine craft distillery.  The seasoning is most enjoyable.  I am taking it on faith that this is entirely different to however Capt Morgan is spiced, because I know I have had Capt Morgan in the past, and I have no recollection of the flavor.
