    I use my DotShot a lot. It's great with a cube of ice and some rum.

    My DotShot should be here tomorrow. I picked up a bottle of Tres Generaciones Anejo for it's arival. How's that line from Jaws go... bottle goes into the freezer, DotShot goes into the freezer, I go into the freezer :idiot2:

    I use mine for Bourbon. As someone said before 1 ice cube and a good splash makes an awesome cocktail.

    Thank you Brules, unfortunately I can only justify the cost once or twice a year. The DotShot is worth it though. What I need to do is get the salesman who handles our South American accounts to hook me up again. It's weird though... the Cabo Wabo brand seems to be smoother, even though people keep telling me it's just a marketing thing.

    I have several of each. The one that gets the most use is the smooth dotshot in the bathroom with the Listerine.

    Got mine today....Christened with cheap, but quality, scotch....

    Thoughts:

    1. I like it
    2. I wish it were larger... maybe 2-3 times as big.
    3. Clean stainless keeps cold, adds no aftertaste.
    4. My first Atwood.. but not my last..Good Lord willing

    I'm not a big Atwood fan, simply because I can't justify some of the prices, (flamesuit on) but I've been eyeballin' a bigshot for some time now. Maybe around Christmas time.

    I have Peters Dot Shots and Tiplers 4 each, and can honestly say they are great.
    I've one in the bathroom as a rinse cup, and keep all the others in the freezer at the ready ;D
