    The 2016 Mount Mary really is such a pretty wine. We opened a mini vertical New Year’s Eve. All three were singing, with the ‘95 the standout. (The ‘15 has a long life ahead).

    Decanted last night and will be sipped over the next week while we’re on holidays. In a beautiful plateau at the moment. Chris Killeen made beautiful VP.

    Cork was in great condition, as was the wine. Lovely vintage of St Henri.

    The only sugar is from the falernum, and I make my own so it’s much less sugary than the commercial stuff. You can pull back on the amount of falernum as well.

    A corn ‘n’ oil. One of my favourite rum based cocktails.

    Exceptional value rum.

    Zammo's Man Cave

    Just working our way through lots of movies in the last week, and pretty happy with the result. The Adams are perhaps a little pinpoint compared with the result I would have achieved with dipoles, but with both sides and rears, and the room not being overly large (8m long by 5m wise), they create a great surround experience for most movies. Setting up Audyssey XT32 was a breeze with the Integra, and the Adams seem tonally well matched with the SGR’s doing all the heavy duty up front.

    Isn’t that Faiveley a snappy little Red Burgundy? Simple for a premier Cru, but who cares at the price.

    A Paloma with home made Jalapeño infused blanco tequila. Spicy!

    Daiquiri with Rhum Blanc Agricole. My new favourite rum for daiquiris.

    A little Haitian Rum in a Ti’ Punch and some tunes in the music room.

    Check out locally made Strangelove tonics as well Al. They have a standard tonic (they call No. 8), a light tonic (low sugar but with no artificial sweeteners) and a dirty tonic (cloudy with cinchona bark). They’re all available at DM’s.

    Recent vintages of Quintet under Sam Middleton have become more open at release, so are drinking well from younger (compared to John Middleton wines of the 90’s and early 00’s). At the tasting, the 2010 & 2013 were both drinking beautifully. The wet year 2011 is just holding on, and I wouldn’t hold any longer - that said, for an off year wine, it is still a lovely Quintet. The 2014 & 15 are both classic years, but are approachable now with the potential to improve with some secondary development. I’ll be opening some mid 90’s quintets over summer - will be interesting to see where they’re at.

    Seriously nice cognac.

    Annual release at Mount Mary over the weekend. Whites quite open at release, and the reds dialled back quite a bit from last years concentrated exceptional releases. Still lovely balance though. Great opportunity to taste 7 consecutive vintages of Quintet.
