Liquor, Liquor, Everywhere...

Normally Mrs. Bottle and I live a life of relaxed luxury where we sit around, drink, and ponder who might win Top Chef.  Due to some unfortunate circumstances, we have had to remain stone cold sober for the last couple evenings.  That makes it difficult to update a blog about drinking.  That isn’t going to stop me from making a post, though.  We inventoried our pre-blog liquor cabinet and we are happy to share it (the inventory, not the liquor) with you.

Behold a loosely organized list with the proof and an occasional note:

Wild Turkey Bourbon (80)
Johnnie Walker Black Label Scotch (80) - Purchased for a visit from my dad but found out he stopped drinking
Maker's Mark Bourbon (80) - For my father-in-law's visits

Bacardi Select Dark Rum (80)
Bacardi Superior Light Rum (80)
Captain Morgan Spiced Rum (70)
Captain Morgan Silver Spiced Rum (70)
Captain Morgan Parrot Bay Pineapple Rum  (42)

Tangueray Rangpur Gin (82.6) - This is my go-to drink for staying in
Bombay Sapphire Gin (94) - My favorite with tonic when dining out
Tanqueray 10 Gin (94.6) - Another high-end gin with a distinctive flavor
Tanqueray Gin (94.6) - Have to have some cheap stuff

Since we started the blog we had to buy Southern Comfort (70).  We also bought some Angustora Aromatic Bitters.  It will be interesting to see how we expand both our waistlines and our liquor cabinet.
