Anyone enjoying the drink tonight? - Page 14

post #235 of 500

That word problem did make my brain stutter for a bit..

 

I was going to get a nice Scotty single malt when I noticed a Japanese brand called Yamazaki. Not smokey or peaty at all, very clean tasting with even a touch of fruity finish. Quite good for $45, but I will be going back to a good peat/tar/smoke bottle next time.

Eagle Rare 17. One of my New Year's resolutions is to drink more bourbon.

I have an Eagle Rare 10 I just got, pretty great stuff for the price!

From the winery attached to the course. Convenient.

I am drinking King's Blockhouse IPA, an excellent product from a new craft brewery that just opened up here in Cape Town. South Africa has been a lager-only country for a depressingly long time -- but the tide is beginning to turn. c2_beer.gif

So ,stretch given the Dutchy influence over there I would have thought it'd be beer heaven over there?

Eagle Rare is a phenomenal value. I've been drinking some Indiana bourbons/ryes lately. Novel for a Hoosier, but haven't found anything terribly interesting.

 

I've been brewing a bunch of lagers lately, and the first of those is just getting to be ready, so I had a couple of those over the weekend. It's a Vienna lager, which is the style that Negra Modelo is modeled after (or, at least, once was). It's pretty good, with some out-of-style hop flavor that makes it interesting. (No sense brewing something yourself that you could just go out and buy!)

 

It's a little lonely writing about a drink that no one else here can experience. Ah well... if anyone passes through West Lafayette, drop me a line and I'll set you up. :-)

I just found a leftover sample bottle of Baileys Mint Chocolate Irish Cream from a Christmas gift set while going through the pantry. Why not?

Yes, it is from Franschhoek, which is about 45 minutes up the road from where I live.

This was a very limited release wine, with only 2000 bottles being produced. The vineyards were pruned right back for maximum quality and were cropped at less than 3 tons per hectare. It is a blend of 62% Malbec and 38% Mourvedre. We wanted the delicious ripe fruits to express themselves without the overt influence of any new wood and so the wine was matured in 2nd and 3rd fill French barriques for 32 months. This is a robust wine with a great depth of flavour. It has deep gamey appeal with hints of sweet leather in a sleeve of velvet.

Pretty high up my list as well, lotta competition for that third spot though. Single Malt Whisky and Italian red wine need to duke it out c2_beer.gif

More of a beer person myself but the wife & I tend to be beer snobs. We just can't drink the standard Bud, Bud Light, Coors, Coors Light etc, etc. We prefer smaller batch and local breweries, especially when we travel. Anytime we're in a new area we seek out bars that have a nice selection of local brews on tap.

I just moved into my late grandpa's house. He has a bar in the basement in which he left 4 unopened fifths of different whiskeys. I don't recall the names, but they are all 40-50 year old bottles that are unopened. Along with the fifths, he had about 20 different shooters, again, 40-50 years old.

 

Man, they have quite the bite to them. Gets you drunk... fast. It's the 114 proof, 40 year old Old Grandad that will get you.

 

There was also a single shooter of some cognac. I looked up the price of the stuff the company sells now and they are selling fifths for $2000-3000. That's like a $200 shot.

 

I'm saving it for a special day.
