Liqueur/Liquor Specials 3/1-8/16

     1) ' Mahina Coco ' Coconut liqueur from CLEMENT, a French Caribbean liqueur, this is a splendid Creole delicacy of white rhum and macerated coconut, $25.99 a bottle, with 18% alcohol by volume, I like this quite a bit, a really fine, elegant flavor, smooth, silky coconut taste!
     2) ' Los Parrales ' Anniversario SINGANI from Bolivia, $38.99 a bottle, ' the spirit of altitude ' , is really pure, very fresh, so alive, leaves no headaches, really a very fine and tasty, yet unique taste in a spirit made at such a high altitude. Marina will be here to taste it this Friday from 5-8PM, join us and taste it for yourselves and see what you all think? It will be Marina's third time here tasting it. And the price has gone down since we started with her two years ago. Come and taste and see what all the fuss is about!
     3) Anejo Tequila of Agave, called CORAZON, made from 100% Agave, $54.99 a bottle, with 40% alcohol by color. Besides the smooth and intense flavors I am mezmerized by the color, less-filtered, leaves more of the taste and the character in the bottle, and the bottle-shape, too is really special. 

     4) The Distillers Edition of GLENKINCHIE , The Edinburgh Malt, a Single Malt Scotch Whisky, On Special for $109.99 a bottle, with 43% alcohol by volume, this refined and distinct flavor comes in part from being double-matured in Amontillado casks-wood ... here the whisky has a sophisticated balance between sweet and dry, with a malty depth and showing of this lovely lowland character to the max! Cheers, worth every hard-earned penny of yours.

I STEPPED OUTSIDE TO CLEAR my thoughts and walked down to the end of our block just now to Macomb Street and Connecticut Avenue NW, , 20008 , and looked down by Ardeo and spotted a dirty penny. I decided to walk back and pick it up, brought it back, washed it off, and it is still pretty dirty and the image of Lincoln is scraped up badly now, the other side with the Lincoln Memorial is also tarred black, shiny and matted, two great contrasts, I cannot make out the vintage, glad I have it, a lucky charm for me today as we start to decide who will follow in all our older president's footsteps tonight! I might have to wash this penny again, saving and investing pennies, building up from there.
