sparkling or flat? ;)

Sparkling. They don't sell flat Pelegrino in these parts, nor any flat mineral water in any of my local stores. I'd buy it on occasion if they did, but I enjoy the sparkle.

Nice blend of Negroamaro with ten percent Malvasia nera - tasty, but needs to have the right temperature and breathe some before drinking.

Notarpanaro by Cosimo Taurino from Guagnano near Lecce (Puglia) – 85% Negroamaro, 15% Malvasia Nera – my choice since nearly 30 years!

Looks good - you got an online source for it?

https://www.bremerwein.de/notarpanaro-rosso.html . Taurino's 'flagship' is Patriglione – but more expensive. I´ve visited the winery of Dott. Cosimo Taurino in 1989. Now his widow Rita, her daughter Rosanna and her husband Dott. Fernando Antonio Bello are responsible. Taurino ships worldwide.

Lost about five pounds so far.

But at 62, weight loss comes very slowly.

The good news is my pants fit better and I feel better.

Just bought and tasted the ABERLOUR 12. While not a big fan of the double-casked scotches, like Glenmoranghie, and sherry-casked ones in particular, this one is not too fruity, and I wouldn't add ice. Price was right. $45/750cl.

That's arguably the finest "budget" single malt around. First time I had it, it was $20. 

Have you tried the 12y.o Balvenie double barrel? That's my second favorite Scotch behind Lagavulin.

No, I haven't had the Balvenie  yet. Lagavulin is Islay, does it tastes peaty, like Laphroaig? Wife gave me a 18 y.o. Laphroaig for B-day, and it's still here. Wayyy too strong for me. The 10 y.o. is a lot more palatable to me. That being said, I'm not a Scotch cognoscenti, more like an amateur admirer. I must say that Johnny Walker Platinum is a pretty amazing-tasting scotch.

Yes, Lagavulin is incredibly peaty/smoky. More so than Laphroaig.
