Bad Week Plus New Liquor Equals Good Week
It's been a strange week here at the Liquor Snob offices. First, our fearless Editor in Chief hurt his neck in a drinking-related incident - we can't decide if it's completely punk rock or the signs of old age. Then, the Interweb connection at casa del Snob went out, and we weren't able to get it turned back on for almost a week...just goes to show you the kind of clout we have as a corporation. "But," you might well say, "don't you have a fleet of interns who could have taken the reigns of the juggernaut and kept things rolling during the course of the week?" We thought so too, but they went on strike as soon as the Web connection went down, drinking all the liquor in the office and muttering about mutiny. There's gratitude for you.
Then, in our darkest hour, as we were reaching the depths of despair, two things happened. One, the guy came to fix our Internets. Then, the UPS dude showed up with a mystery box, and it was one of those awesome mystery boxes we receive from time to time, the kind that gurgles when you shake it. Someone had sent us a box full of booze. You'd be surprised how the morale skyrocketed when we pulled three bottles of nectar out of the box.
The first bottle was Zygo Vodka, which we covered last week, and has had our hearts all pitter patter as the caffeinated breakfast vodka of our dreams. The second was 44 North, a huckleberry-flavored Vodka made in Idaho, also the home of our favorite orange vodka. Bottle #3 was from Compass Box, a blended Scotch Whisky called Asyla, which we've heard great things and we've been very excited about.
Check out Zygo, 44 North and Compass Box at their respective sites, and you can expect a review with relative soonness, especially now that our computers can serve as more than glorified paperweights.
