Want something sweet for Saturday? Look no further than the Glenmorangie Milsean. Finished in re-toasted wine casks this whisky gives off flavors you just cant find in other scotches. Cheers to Dr. Bill on creating a truly remarkable and unique dram with the Milsean.

The decanter reads "Bitter cold and deep snow defeat many forest animals, but not the Wild Turkey". Apparently neither does 37 years sealed in a ceramic decanter because this extremely dark, ruby red juice is absolutely delicious.
THEN I DISCOVERED THAT BEING RELATED IS NO GUARANTEE OF LOVE. -- STIEGG LARSSON
This is Charles Patawaran and his wife Maria del Rosario, home for a few weeks to enjoy the Philippines, place of their birth which they both left when they were kids -- he was three, she was two.
I don't even remember Charles as a three-year-old. I remember him only as his mother's bundle of joy, an infant, but I was 19 or 20 and I was going out a lot and my life was outside family. All these years I even thought he was my nephew. Turns out I'm not that old. He really only is a first cousin.
Tonight I see him again after eons and it's more than a happy occasion and the connection was instant. It's like running into a stranger with whom you share a whole world in common, not only our names, also a history so complicated we should be glad we can laugh about it now.
So proud you turned out the way you are. I wish you and Maria and your beautiful kids all the best! Enjoy El Nido.

Single barrels can be tricky, but every now and then you find some really great ones. This one I picked up on my way out of Dallas last year, and now, I wish I had a backup. For those that are curious, this store select barrel was pulled from floor 5 in warehouse K.

(English review below)
Layla bar nằm ở tầng ba của một chung cư cũ, ngay đối diện khách sạn Sheraton. Quán rộng, bài trí theo kiểu industrial design. Mình đến đây cũng khá nhiều lần, phần lớn là happy hour 💃 (6pm-8pm), nếu tới quán tầm sau 9pm thì nên đặt chỗ nha vì giờ đó khá đông. Đồ uống ở đây rất ngon nè, đặc biệt là các loại cocktail, pha rất vừa uống, mình thích nhất là Rasberry cardinal và whisky sour. Nếu bạn là người thích uống rượu thì cũng nên thử qua quán này nha, cả red wine và white wine khá ok, giá cả trong khung giờ happy hour khá hợp lý, khoảng 80k-95k. Quán cũng có phục vụ đồ ăn nữa, thực đơn khá phong phú.

Layla is one of my most fav bars in town, pretty spacious yet unique. It is hidden on the 3rd floor of an old building, right opposite of Sheraton hotel. I guess the interior design is inspired by Aussie style as the owner is Aussie (not 100% sure though 🤣). Been to lots of bars in Saigon but I have to say this place has the best cocktails in town. The way bartenders mix and play with herbs, chillies, cinnamon and even oysters makes Layla one of the best cocktail places I guess. If you are on a tight budget then coming over here at happy hour is something you shouldn't miss out lol. Decent price for a cocktail after a hectic week, why not?
