I’m not into booze in any big way. I like interesting beer every so often, I like cider, a glass of wine with dinner is nice, a few rum and egg nogs around yule time are swell, and a good friend has been educating me on the finer points of single malt scotch. Oh and I finally, finally had a chance to try braggot. Which I enjoyed. But by and large, just not much of a drinker. But one alcoholic beverage that I was introduced to over the holidays a year ago, and just had again, and really like, is Sortilège
Canadian whiskey and maple syrup liqueur. Yummy. From a company in Quebec, it was unavailable outside that province last year, but is now available from our liquor monopoly. Worth seeing if you can find it where you are. Delicious.


  1. If you liked Sortilege, try Black Velvet Toasted Caramel Whiskey. I picked up a bottle before Christmas and I love it. It tastes great just on ice for smooth sipping, but I'm sure it would taste as an addition to lots of things (coke, ice cream, etc.).
    (I love good whiskey and a good Canadian rye whiskey is much less expensive than a decent scotch. Maybe it's because I grew up on a farm that grows rye.)

    1. Hey Bryan.

      Thanks for the heads up.

      I've come to appreciate Scotch, but that is a drink that requires some financial clout to enjoy. A friend has a huge selection and I've had the opportunity to sample many, but the one I dig (Scapa) goes for $140 a bottle. Bit rich for my blood.

  2. Sad day. No one around here carries it. *sigh*
