Apothic Red, 2016.
Apothic is one of my go-to wines
Yes. Is very good and reasonably priced, and goes very well with bleu cheese-walnut cookies and a cigar, when there is no port available.
I'd like to commend your tastes. That and ask after the recipe for blue cheese walnut cookies because a) they sound fantastic and b) I've got a daughter to punish.
Blue cheese walnut cookies sound fantastic! Put me down for a copy of the recipe with Hugo
The recipe I use is based off of the one in the following link, omitting the cranberry and rosemary.

An old bird-hunting friend of mine that passed away at Christmas in 2010 had a Christmas tradition of Stilton and walnut cookies with port and a cigar. I lost his recipe in a move, and can't usually find Stilton in my area, and so I switched to bleu cheese and have tried to carry on the tradition in his memory. His recipe was very salty however, and one of my modifications was to reduce the salt.
Anyway, it's coffee this morning, with a pipe of Inns of Court. Now I'm wanting to put together a batch of bcw cookies.

I am very interested...have to wait a bit, as they are not low carb :) but this will be something I try when I loose some poundage. Thanks for the link

Yes these are definitely a rare treat, for special occasions and all that. But mostly, for me, during the Christmas-New Year holiday.
This afternoon I'm enjoying a small sip of sloe gin with a bowl of Dark Fragrant.

Wild Turkey.

After this evening the bottle will be empty, as will the spirits shelf in our pantry. I'm considering a bottle of Oban next.

I have a bottle of their Little Bay open currently. It's my special occasion bottle for those moments when Walker just isn't snooty enough for me.

Thanks for the recommendation. I shall indeed look for this one.

Evan Williams Bourbon, on the rocks, with a bowl of luscious McCl bulk No. 2015 Virginia Perique Flake. Have quite a bit of 2015 as I was moved to get several pounds last winter.

Cupcake Merlot.
Not a great Merlot but I am amused by it's presumption.

Nespresso? Or a real one?

I've been very happy with our Nespresso. I'm having a latte now.
I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

Water.

Like a lot of people, I don't drink enough of it, and I have to be really intentional about it. Apparently coffee, pepsi, beer and whisky aren't sufficient for the body's needs.
