"fine Liquors" taste's... hardhead Posted: May 6, 2004 7:12PM in General Discussion edited January 2014 I really enjoy a good single malt from time to time. 18 year old McCallen scotch served cool and neat.Hot summer days go with slushy Margaritas. Just take it easy on the Tequila and use good Tequila!What about you guys? «12»Comments Reply 1 of 31 buonrotto Posts: 6,368member May 6, 2004 7:16PM I like some dry white wines, champagne and a warm cognac on a cold winter's evening. I know, I know, I am soooooo pretentious.

Reply 5 of 31 johnq Posts: 2,763member May 6, 2004 8:03PM Jameson Irish Whiskey on ice. None smoother. Won't slow ya down. But for watching a ballgame, a 6 of Belhaven goes nice with my Vietnamese takeout.

Reply 9 of 31 splinemodel Posts: 7,311member May 6, 2004 8:54PM Lagavulin . . . That stuff tastes like cigarette butts. You can open the bottle, and from across the room it's obvious that someone opened a bottle of lagavulin.Of course, it's strangely alluring.On a serious note, I don't like wine too much. I stick to a pretty steady system of beer and dark rum during the warmer months, which, of course, will become the whole year for me fairly soon. The Barbados Rums are good. I had a nice Cuban rum once, too. Don't remember the names. Usually, it's just a trek up Mount Gay for me.dumb puns rule.As far as beers are concerned, I don't like anything dark. I don't like the taste of ash in a beer, which incidently is what makes most dark beers dark. (roasting process). A good pilsener, on the other hand, is just right. Reply 10 of 31 kickaha Posts: 8,760member May 6, 2004 8:56PM The Macallan 18 yr... hmm. I seem to have a flask of that right here...Balvenie 21yr port cask aged is a great summer scotch - light and slightly salty with a nice solid touch of sweet port.The Macallan Cask Strength is one not to be missed if you find it. 80proof? Nay! 117proof! With a flavor intensity to match. Stronger proportionally on the apricot and wood.Grey Goose vodka in my gimlet please, Maker's Mark if I'm slummin' with da mint leaves, Casadores tequila hands down for that slidin' south of the table feeling, and Bendistillery gin for all your woodland scented drink needs.

Paul Pacult (from The Spirit Journal) rated Herradura Anejo as the second best white spirit that he tasted from 1991-2000 (second only to Barbancourt Estate Reserve 15 Year Old Rum from Haiti). Reply 12 of 31 kickaha Posts: 8,760member May 6, 2004 9:39PM And yet strangely I prefer the Casadores to Herradura. Herra's *good* mind you... damned good. But it's definitely on the smokey side. Perhaps this spirits expert was a Lagavulin fan? The Casadores is sipping tequila, straight up. Light yet layered, with a mild aftertaste and smooth as silk on a geisha's backside.

Reply 14 of 31 buonrotto Posts: 6,368member May 6, 2004 10:32PM Not fine liquors per se, but I should add that I enjoy a good pilsner as well now and then, especially some of the Czech beer I had over there. I love beer with fish and chips especially. Reply 15 of 31 buckeye Posts: 358member May 6, 2004 10:46PM mmmm....... 2 different barrels.

When I was in college... our campus was located in the outskirts of the hood. But lucky for us we had the Shell station that served the ghetto.... so they stocked Colt 45 Double Malt. Good shit... but last time I had it, I started crying half way through the 40oz for no reason. But, yeah.... it was good.

Here's a tip: if you drink this shit all the damn time it ends up being much less pleasurable....
