I know I've discussed it before and this is a whisk(e)y site... I can't help myself.  I LOVE Dragon's Milk.  From New Holland Brewing, Dragon's Milk is 17th Century terminology for Stout reserved for Royalty.  It is truly a royal brew.  Aged in oak bourbon barrels for at least 120 days, it is the ambrosia of stout beers.  If I were told I had to give up everything else... I would fight to the death for Dragon's Milk.  
It is more ale than beer and it IS stout, sweet and sour... more sweet than sour, slight bourbon hints, STRONG stout. 
If you love brown beer... beer that is truly BEER... give it a try.  

It runs about $4.00/bottle.  Fairly expensive for a beer you buy in a store.
However, I was sitting in a bar in Houston, Texas when the FIRST price hike to $1.00/glass of draft beer went into effect... EVERYBODY was complaining.  I was sitting next to a regular at the bar and he was listening to everybody "b*tch" about the price.  He stood up and above the outroar said, "Hey, what are you complaining about... (long pause) I don't see how they can make anything so damned good so damned CHEAP..."  Everybody shut up and went back to drinking beer... which is what they were there for.
I have to agree on Dragon's Milk... I'd pay a lot more for it.

Wathan's Kentucky Bourbon... I was unfamiliar with it, thought I'd give it a try.  What an outstanding whiskey.  Made from family recipes initiated in the 1700's, it is one of the best unknown (to me) bourbons I have ever tasted.  Flavors of honeysuckle, vanilla, caramel, fine port, honey, light oak and spice (cinnamon), it is a real treat. Has a bit of a "kick" at 94 proof, but it is overwhelmed by the port/caramel flavors.   There is no age statement on the bottle... I can't guess the age.  For me, it is "enough", but maybe could be aged a bit longer for full mellowing.  I like the stuff, a lot.   A good addition to my bar stock.

I'm hoping you've already bought up all available stock before the great stampede starts....

Sandeman's Fine Tawny Port... is "fine" no more.  Used to be the absolute best deal on the market for tawny port (longer aged... takes on a tawny (or golden/yellowish color)... no longer exists.  It is now just a mediocre ruby port... no tawny color at all.  Complete misnomer/false advertising.  However, that has become typical of tawny ports lately... maybe no one really knows what a tawny port is supposed to look or taste like anymore.  I don't know what the problem is, but the last 4 versions of "tawny port" i've purchased have merely been poor ruby ports.  
What I am seeing is that to get a "real" tawny, moderately tasty, price has increased two to three times... a true "fine" tawny port is now the price of a 20 year old scotch.

Yeah, you have to get a good Rye Whiskey to find a good tawny port... drink a lot of Rye and any port tastes good...
