Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

Bought a bottle of this yesterday : https://www.masterofmalt.com/whiskies/l … sky/?srh=1

It's my go-to scotch...has been for a couple of years.

Here's my favourite review from Amazon :-)

You open the bottle and the smell hits you. This ain't no frilly Scotch. This Scotch is going to put hair in places you may not be accustomed to having it. You take a sip and your voice drops. You take a second sip and suddenly you have an oversized sword in your left hand. At this point your wife is confused and the kids are scared, but there's no turning back. After the third sip the accent comes. Slowly at first. An 'aye' here, a 'lad' there. But slowly takes a back seat after the fourth sip. Your accent is now full steam, you look out the window and Brian Cox nods in approval. A kilt falls from the ceiling as you realize you're now naked. You stand proud, take the fifth sip, and your wife looks at you with hunger in her eyes. It's a good day to be a Scotch drinker.

Just found a forgotten box behind the house, which must contain the booze cupboard overflow from last Xmas! Having a nice glass of Pinot Grigio now, before exploring what else is in there wink

Irish coffee, with Jameson not Bushmills which seems to be the favorite here in the US.

That scotch review is for the ages!

Last night I tried a dwarven ale (1 ounce of whiskey mixed into a tankard of ale) it was surprisingly really good.

btw: 24oz high gravity lager called Earthquake atm, it's 10% by volume, dirt cheap and they didn't name it that for nuttin. Yozwa fellows ! A few of these is equal to roughly an 8.3 on the richter scale.

Ahh. I used to drink something similar. They were called Hurricanes. High gravity - 211. Available in different ABVs, but what I bought was 10%. And I drank them fast. tongue

Used to drink a lot of swill. Especially before I graduated from high school.

Redd's Wicked Apple Cider.  Closest we can get to Applejack in our area without setting cider out in barrels to freeze.  (That apple brandy made by Laird's doesn't count; different distillation process.)

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

There's an apple flavored whisky made by Suntory at the supermarket near here... I may give it a try, or may not. They also had an apple wine. I should probably just drink from the already bloated collection of liquors we stocked our cabinet with recently.

I'd recommend doing this first and leaving "all things oats and apples" to the ponies; they love oats and apples.  If you still feel like it, and if you're sober enough to make it to the market, try that apple whiskey/brandy later.  (I'm not sure about the Suntory products, but Laird's Applejack is actually a blended brandy.)

Geez Louise, I'm getting drunk, just reading what some of your guys are posting! yikes

As for Lagavullin, which I can no longer afford to buy, you don't guzzle the stuff. You're supposed to savor it, sniff, sip, and take your time drinking it. The bottle should last more than a few nights...right?  roll


What? Me worry?

Red pill or blue pill?

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

I like Fernet Branca.

but yesterday i had a closer look at the selection of herb liquor, and found Gammel Dansk Bitter Dram(*) and i think i like it even more...
even less sugar than Fernet, yet very full taste, oily.

(*) interesting reviews!

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

Didn't see this Jdonaghy.

Swill is pretty much perfect description for sure. Did a stint with 211 for quite awhile too. Then decided was time to upgrade to 10%.

Was going through 5-6 a dy, yowza! 1 earthquake = 4 5% 12 ouncers, though even better impact since intake is much faster. smile

Still thinking about setting up a still. On the 2do list. Errrr, anyone know where the substance abuse help thread is on the forum? tongue
