Title: Alcohol
Post by: Aytron on February 09, 2012, 11:54:58 AM
What is your favorite Alcoholic beverage of choice? For me it's beer or rum. I don't mess with that colored mixed drink bullshit you ladies prefer. Rum and coke is as close as I get to that.

My variation on rum and coke is to use Capt. Morgan's spiced rum and Cherry Coke.  I also recently found that Jack Daniel's Honey and apple cider go well together.

I prefer colored mixed drink bullshit and wine.

Rum makes me want to vomit unless it's mixed with pineapple (specifically only pineapple).
Tequila and vodka are my favorite liquors.
And only dark beer will suffice.

Blue moon is one of my favorite beers. However, i will rock a bitch beer like Mike's Hard limeade, because that shit is tasty and gets you drunk. I'm terrified of buying wine, I know nothing about whine or what sort of whine is good. Every white wine i've had tasted like scrotum sweat, same goes for champagne. Tequila makes me break out a little. Never had scotch, or bourbon, i don't feel i'm a sophisticated enough human being to drink those.

Hot whiskey is lovely. In the summer scotch on the rocks.


Good ale and wine are entire worlds in themselves. But Trappist ale or craft porter/stout are always a delight, and big Italian reds or subtle French vinatages make some evenings incredibly nice.

Sadly what I end up drinking out weighs what I'd prefer to drink by a wide margin. I end up drinking the likes of coors and bud light usually when I go to a bar, or a friend's house. I have a bottle of private stock and a 2 liter of chery dr pepper in the fridge, and it is close to 5 pm. I don't mind coors, it's not my favorite beer. I still no nothing about wine. From what little of it I do drink I seem to favor red wine.

I can't remember if I've had coconut rum, usually if rum is involved I'm not the one who bought it. But I believe the juice is usually orange/pineapple or mango/pineapple. Either way pineapple is essential for deliciousness.

I suppose alcohol has made me throw up as well. Since I've just decided that my only criterion for deciding how troublesome something is is whether or not it can make me throw up, I've determined that water and alcohol are both trouble.

Title: Re: Alcohol
Post by: Lord Wilmore on February 11, 2012, 09:22:47 PM
In my experience, a little bit of effort and money goes a long way when it comes to alcohol. Don't go to a regular store and buy their cheapest wine. Go to an ultra-value supermarket and pay double what you were willing to pay in the regular store. You'll do so much better. Same for beer - go slightly upmarket. German beer is almost always solid thanks to their brewing laws. Belgian beer is often better. Local craft beer is probably amazing wherever you are. When it comes to spirits, get used to them using classic recipes. Try a hot whiskey (hot water, limes, cloves, brown sugar) before drinking it by itself. It also helps if some of your friends care about the taste of what they're drinking - all kinds of fun to be had.


I liked wine from day one. Beer I was skeptical about, and it wasn't until I had some semi-nice stuff that I started to like it. I still don't like the beers I initially tasted, but it turned out there was a world of beer I'd just never encountered. I have to confess, I'm still not a raw-spirits man. Hot-buttered rum and other hot toddies are fine, but at a bare minimum it has to be on the rocks for me to enjoy it.

I normally drink it in about a 1:3 ratio with Pepsi or Coca-Cola. I'll sometimes sip a little bit straight before pouring the cola in, but I agree that it's too strong to be tasty in more than very small quantities on its own.

From what I understand, whiskey (especially Scotch whiskey) is meant to be somewhat diluted (usually with water and/or ice) in order to be properly enjoyed.  Having said that, I'm not really much of a whiskey fan.

To be honest, it's not something I've even wikied. I was just used to seeing bars/people serve it straight. On the rocks it was actually quite nice, so that explains a lot. Research time!

Title: Re: Alcohol
Post by: Mr Pseudonym on February 11, 2012, 11:17:04 PM
Cocktails/shooters are my favourite, not the girly kind with flowers and birds or paradise hanging out over the edge under the shade of an umbrella; no, I mean something a bit stronger like a RobRoy/Manhattan, b-52, rusty nail or even a martini.  I don't mind occasionally a girly one, like say a gin and orange.  Wine is ok, beer on a hot summers day always.

Wilmore is right though, pay more for better quality generally, especially with spirits, wines and beers.  Another thing, and this may be because of my deepening descent into alcoholism as I get older, I notice that as the more years that have past, the better I have become at tasting and acknowledging the differences between differing types. I think this lead me to notice the vast difference in complexity and taste between say blue label John walker, to black, and even red labels. Again, you pay more for the more aged/special stuff but it is worth it.

Good whisky should be enjoyed neat (on the rocks if you must but you lose some of the flavour if its too cold). I'm not a fan though, the Bloke is.

I heart beer but I can only drink gluten free beer now which doesn't have too many varieties yet but I used to love real ale with a strong flavour. And lager for getting drunk.

I enjoy red wines, particularly from Argentina or Chile. Cabernet Sauvignon is probably my favourite grape. But even cheap red wine can be enjoyable but definitetly not the same for cheap white wine - cheap whites are nearly always very very nasty but I don't particularly like white wine anyway.

Spirits I enjoy with mixers, particularly gin and tonic.

I love port.

I disagree completely. Most cheap reds I cannot stand, but I don't mind an inexpensive white. I typically go for local wines, BC has some very nice old vinyards. I like the Chilean wines as well, because they are very well priced for their quality. S. Africa seems to be getting better while staying at a lower price point as well.

I've yet to try a port, I'm hesitant about buying a bottle of something I don't know that I'd like. So few restaurants offer port on their after dinner drink menu. Any recommendations?
Title: Re: Alcohol
Post by: Lord Wilmore on February 12, 2012, 08:24:27 AM
I find the store you buy from is a more significant factor than the price or the grape. Most stores/vinters source at least some of their own (or else semin-independent) wines, as opposed to the mass-market labels that are everywhere. If the store is good value, a lot of their wine will often be as well.


For example, here you can pay an awful lot for some distinctly average wine in smaller supermarket chains. If you go to Lidl or Aldi however, you can get perfectly respectable wine for around €5 (to put this in context, you would have to pay around €10 elsewhere for the same quality), and absolutely delicious wines for around €12 (that I would happily pay €20+ for). These chains are massive and have enormous economies of scale, so you get really nice French and Italian numbers for far less than you would pay in somewhere like Tesco (which isn't exactly expensive to begin with).


Of course, you get the most interesting stuff from proper wine shops - especially if you ask for a recommendation - but then you have to pay proper wine shop prices.

I typically go to wine stores, there's one I like to go to that only has local wines. The woman who owns the shop is incredibly knowledgeable about all the vinyards across the province, and she has amazing recommendations.
Of course here, you can only buy alcohol from liquor stores, so the price of wine is approximately the same no matter where you go.

I have no idea if I even like wine. I know I don't like red wine, and I've only tasted one other brand which was good, but I have no idea what that was. And I don't really feel like buying a bunch of wine to find out what I like either.

You need friends who like wine, then you can try for free. In my case, it was my mother-in-law who is the wine drinker, so she got us into it. I would suggest starting with the german whites, the Reisling and Gewurztraminer, and work your way into the Pinots, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. That's how I did it, and it got me into appreciating the reds.

Well Taylors is a common brand that you can't go wrong with. Don't get a vintage if you can't be arsed with decanting (its a pain). I had a really nice port at christmas, will see if I can find the case for it later and check the name.

If you're going cheap then I find whites are safer. A bad white wine tastes like grape juice whereas a bad red tastes like vinegar.

My drink of choice changes regularly. It used to be dry ciders, then I went through a rum stage, now I quite like beers. There is a great little pub near where I live which serves hundreds of foreign bottled beers and ales, including a deadly 12% Belgian monster.

I'd also suggest possibly making sure that the wine's sweetness is a 1. It will make it more palatable for beginners without being sickeningly sweet.
Okay, thanks for the warnings. I don't like sweet stuff. Well, I don't know about wine, but at least that's why I hate almost all liqueur.

A sweetness of 1 is just enough to take the edge off without making it seem like you're drinking juice. I would not go above a 1 unless you're cooking with it.

I've yet to try a port, I'm hesitant about buying a bottle of something I don't know that I'd like. So few restaurants offer port on their after dinner drink menu. Any recommendations?
Well Taylors is a common brand that you can't go wrong with. Don't get a vintage if you can't be arsed with decanting (its a pain). I had a really nice port at christmas, will see if I can find the case for it later and check the name.

I have a decanter, so decanting is no problem.

I guess the cheap red wines they sell here aren't as bad as what they sell elsewhere. There's a limited choice but I buy one of the cheapest ones and its yum.

I'm not saying cheap reds are no good, you're just more likely to get a bad wine the cheaper it is. I find bad whites more palatable than bad reds.

EDIT: I'd also like to add, that barring 3 or 4 of my favourites, I rarely try the same wine twice.

If you're going cheap then I find whites are safer. A bad white wine tastes like grape juice whereas a bad red tastes like vinegar.

My drink of choice changes regularly. It used to be dry ciders, then I went through a rum stage, now I quite like beers. There is a great little pub near where I live which serves hundreds of foreign bottled beers and ales, including a deadly 12% Belgian monster.


Drinking a 10% Irish Stout right now.


As for wine, seriously, I wouldn't get too caught up in red vs white vs grape. You need to be willing to experiment a little. It shouldn't cost that much or anything, but get some cheese and a reasonably priced (i.e less than €10, more than €4) bottle of wine. Taste, enjoy, change, repeat. Don't be safe. I hate to sound elitist, but if you want to like what you drink, don't buy the mass-market stuff. It really is lowest common denominator and is often overpriced. Go for wine that sounds interesting, and experiment.

I agree with what you are saying but some wines go better with different foods, at different times, moods etc.  I actually think a lot of thought should be placed on white or red, and the specific type in regard what food, mood is etc.  If you don't match it carefully it can make a good wine actually feel like it tastes bad.  FOr example beer is good, but have beer and chocolate and it just isn't pleasant.  Granted, this takes skill, particularly to get refined, but it is worth considering.

I have a few favourites that I can fall back on but when trying a new wine I tend to research it a little to see what foods it goes with etc. Well when I say 'I' I mean the Bloke, he's the fussy one. I just like to drink. But not anymore, no booze since a little after New Year :(

Ewy, left over champagne. Do you know how old it was?

Okay, so I cluelessly bought some white wine today for 7.69 €. The labels in the store didn't say anything about the wine's sweetness with numbers, but it said "half dry", so I don't know what that means in relation to the sweetness being, let's say 1, as Enigma mentioned. I noticed four variations, those being Sweet, Half Sweet, Half Dry, and Dry. So, I'm guessing a sweetness of 1 is equivalent to either halft sweet or half dry.

I haven't opened the bottle yet so I don't know what it tastes like, but the labels says:
Espiritu de Chile
2011
Chardonnay Gewürstraminer

This Chardonnay Gewürztraminer blend displays a vibrant yellow colour in the glass. This harmonious wine offers aromas of rose petals, apricot, lime and some spicy notes. On the palate, this round wine is soft and balanced and medium in body. An ideal match for spicy food.

Doesn't sound too bad to me, but what the hell do I know? I guess I'll find out when the party starts.

Ideal drinking temperature 8-10°C. So I should probably but it in the fridge.

Oh, if we're talking about drinking it with food or without, then yes, the grape and/or colour is very important. In fact, the grape is also quite important if you're drinking it on its own, as big reds are much less enjoyable on their own.

Yes, Half-Dry would seem to be the closest to what I was referring to. I wouldn't go any sweeter than that unless you were cooking. Also, don't be depressed if you can't taste/smell rose petals, apricots, limes or spices.

Beer or Wine Enemas
Beer or wine can be used, you will want them to be warm. Surprisingly you will get quite drunk. Possibly you will be dangerously drunk so you should be careful. It is a good idea to mix wine at half-strength the first time you use alcohol in an enema.

Alcohol is absorbed much more quickly in the intestines than in the stomach, so you need to be really careful.

Using hard alcohol is NOT A GOOD IDEA. You can die from this.

It might be worth a mention that mixing drugs (alcohol in this case) and strange medical procedures can be a bad idea.

I ended up buying some absinthe. It is delicious, and 60% alcohol by volume to boot.
Try mixing it with some Ginger beer ( 1 shot Absinthe, 1/2 shot lime juice and top with ginger beer - that's a Bohemian Mule!)

I don't have any ginger beer right now, but I imagine they would go well together. I'll try it at some point, thanks.

Do you guys get the real absinthe in Australia, or does your government require there to be no wormwood in it either?

Good question. The "Green Fairy Absinth" I have says on the back, "Absinth made from wormwood and containing thujone has never been banned in Czech republic. Green Fairy is made...in Prostejov." The product is bottled there and imported to Australia. So I don't know if this really answers the question; it supposedly has thujones, which is the mind altering substance, though I've never experienced anything like that. Perhaps I need to drink more than 1 drink at a sitting?

I am pretty sure it is legal here in Australia and a quick google reveals there are Absinthe distilleries that use wormwood here in Australia.

Guinness is okay, but to be honest there are much better Irish porters and stouts to be had, such as the following. The Dungarven Brewing Company's Blackrock Stout, the Porterhouse brewing company's various porters and stouts, and my current favourite, Trouble Brewing's Dark Arts Porter:

The effects of alcohol on a person vary greatly depending on many factors including one's tolerance for alcohol, body weight, rate and volume of consumption, stomach fullness, liver function, and so on.  However, for most people, the effects that you describe would require more than just a single glass of wine (unless it's a rather large glass of fortified wine consumed very quickly on an empty stomach).

Judging by its colour, the brand of absinthe I have (Green Fairy) is actually not real absinthe, but this crap: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohemian-style_absinth

That is, it has wormwood but not anise, if my assessment is correct. I feel duped.

Nevertheless, it isn't a bad drink, I just wish I'd known what I was getting.

Well that's interesting for a number of reasons.  I actually find there is some sort of anise flavour anyway, and if that is what I was after I would've maybe tried something else, like a Sambuca. That wiki article also mentions the fire ritual, which was another major reason for me purchasing the absinthe.  I haven't tried this but I will soon and will post the results of my 'study.'
Title: Re: Alcohol

From what I've been able to figure out after some Googling, if you paid less than $150 for a bottle, then it's probably not "real" absinthe.  Then again, there seems to be some controversy as to what qualifies as "real absinthe" since, unlike liquors such as whiskey, there is no legal definition for absinthe.

Not really. I've had meh-cheap whiskey, nice cheap-ish whiskey (from Aldi, a big German supermarket here), and really expensive whiskey that wasn't mine, but which someone offered me.


In terms of taste:value ration, the Aldi stuff was definitely tops. It didn't taste amazing, but it didn't taste meh either. It was nice, and relatively cheap.

Inspired by this thread, I decided to go out and buy a bottle of port.  I'm not a wine person but I've wanted to try port for some time because I've always liked port wine cheese, and I figured this would be different from a typical red wine, which I normally don't like because I find it bitter, because I'd heard that port was supposed to be sweet.

I bought a bottle of Fonseca Bin No 27 Reserve.  I made a baked brie to go along with it.  The port was actually very nice, sweet without being sickening and with a complex flavor.  I also thought it paired well with the baked brie.

I'm going to try a tawny port next.

Yes, it's a taste thing that mixes well with bourbon. Go into a cigar shop, one where you get the feeling that the attendant know what he/she is talking about and tell them that you have a bottle of Makers Mark and you want a cigar that compliments the taste. Also, let them know it is your first cigar, they will teach you how to properly cut and light it. Buy two and enjoy with a friend.

I'll consider it. But I have no idea where to start looking for a cigar shop, or how to tell if the attendant knows what she's doing.

I am now drinking some more absinthe with ginger beer, along with some vintage cheddar. I find I vastly prefer the taste of whiskey to that of absinthe, so I am alternating between the two and diluting the absinthe with a far less objectionable beverage until the absinthe is finished.

The only drinks I would mix are whiskey (with cola or Irn-Bru) or Sambuka, because I detest the taste of aniseed.

Blended whiskies are acceptable to mix. I prefer mine with Crabbies Alcoholic Ginger Beer. Some say it's a bit ott but I say it's just making sure.

Single malts should never be mixed with anything. That's like diluting a fine vintage wine.

In as thin a glass as possible, preferably conical to preserve the aroma, swirl in hand to heat to body temperature then sip and enjoy the wonder of the universe.

Slowly with weed.

But remember the golden rule kids: Either take them together, or preferably weed first just to stimulate the tastebuds, or not at all. Getting whacked on a single malt then having a toke is not entertaining. It's a mess you will be cleaning up for hours and an aroma that will linger for days afterwards.

I drink quite a lot of vodka--straight from the bottle (just don't let the aftertaste of that gasoline get ye').  Some weeks the 40 is dry by Wednesday and I feel a bit like an alcoholic.  Then again, I haven't drank in two weeks which is also a common occurrence as I'm too lazy to keep up on the supply.  Either way, yup, vodka.

Fair enough, although not all /whiske?y/ is expensive. Also, you get an order of magnitude more alcohol per unit volume, so there's added value.

Assuming that by "is in" you meant to type "isn't", I have been in that situation before. However, I find I am usually safe with Scotch or bourbon, since they are so delicious that a desire to keep some for later always counteracts that urge. There is also the secondary benefit that drinking a delicious beverage is enjoyable. Therefore, I mostly drink whiskies of various types.

Yes.  Isn't or is not is what I meant.  Do you ever type faster than you think?  Just wondering.

While Scotch sounds really delicious right now,  I have none and am in now condition to drive anyway.  Also, in the commy state of Georgia, I have to drive about 30 miles one way to buy liquor.  Therefore, beer is the usual drink, and good stuff is only on special occasions.

Why would I slow my intake of alcohol?

I advocate water after the fact.  Yea, you should probably drink a few glasses of water while you are drinking alcohol.  But if you wake up with a headache the next day, drink lots of water and take some form of electrolyte.  Personally, I will drink at least 1 large glass of water every 15 minutes until I am urinating as often as I am drinking the water.  Hangover gone in less than 2 hours.  Often less than 1 hour.

You should find some nice Canadian rye whiskey, I'd be curious as to what you think of it. I recommend Alberta Premium, as it's one of the few rye whiskeys left made with 100% rye instead of a rye/corn blend. You're probably more likely to find Crown Royal though, it's still good.

If you'd like to try it mixed, typically it's with ginger ale.

I recall preferring the simpler taste of bourbon when I started drinking whisky, and Maker's Mark is by far the easiest bourbon to drink that I've tried, and reasonably cheap. As such, I'd recommend getting a bottle of Maker's Mark, and try it on the rocks first -- it'll make it even easier to drink since the ice will dilute it as it melts. If you really enjoy it, try a glass without ice.

I did read Parsifal's post.  I was saying that you can not say a whiskey is ruined by pouring it over ice.  It will be diluted and cold, but not ruined.  I like mine on the rocks, and others do not.  That is fine.  I do not say they are ruining their whiskey by not pouring it over ice.

I finished my Penderyn. And I will be partaking in 24 Hour Drinking with my housemates, 2 days before one of my exams.

From the facebook event page:   

"Its that time again..... It has been long..... too long since the last time my kin and i ventured into the blackness of this event, But once more into the breach my friends, once more. So our journey will commence. I will take the ring to mordor, but i do not know the way. Actually i do, but i need a good fellowship to get lashed with me. Its on fuckers. 24 Hour drinking is on again bigger and badder.
Some of you will know the rules, for those who dont:
1. Stay awake for 24 hours
2. No food for 24 hours
3. No non alcoholic drinks for 24 hours

Start at the Dev cat, on to monday Corp, back to [my house which FES isn't allowed to know omunuuu], and then to a park."

How much would you be willing to pay for a good single malt? Take your time and think about it.

Nope not even close, http://www.refinedvices.com/the-dalmore-trinitas-64, £100 000 for a bottle.

The twelve year old malt is to die for, and that's £40 a pop, so I can only imagine what the 64 year old would be like.

It represents a quality product. Nuff said.

With only 3 bottles ever produced, would you actually open it to find out?

If I got my hands on a bottle I would.

It would be an insult to the skill of the master blender not to sample his talent.

In my, humble, opinion it's comparable to all those sad adults who collect toys. They must be pristine condition, never out of the box, limited edition so they can be traded as an investment. It reduces them to a simple commodity which exists only to be traded for a greater value than that which was paid originally.

It misses the point of their existence which is to provide a pleasurable experience for those investing in the product in the first place.

Besides whiskey is not like fine wine in that it does not mature out of the cask. When it's bottled that's it. You either sample it now or it degrades. If I'm paying that kind of money for a single bottle I'm sure as hell going to see what all the fuss is about.

If she's attractive, who cares? 29 is not that old. The graveyard is a bit dodge, but goes with your avy.

Yeah, we can't have more than 0.05% blood alcohol level here either. I'm a pretty big guy, so I can have at least one drink and still be okay, but small women can't even have half a glass of wine with dinner without being in trouble. It's had a huge toll on alcohol sales at restaurants. The rest of the country is 0.08.

It's a flawed concept.

If it genuinely contributed to the decrease of alcohol abuse I'd be all for it. But it wont.

Abusers of any substance will always find a way to feed their addiction. Be it through crime or depriving themselves of more common basic needs, such as food and clothing, for themselves and their family members.

With this legislation I can guarantee an increase in petty crime in order to feed that adiction. Be it shoplifting, housebreaking, street robbery or just hitting the local off licence.

It's not just Scotland that's getting shafted here. This is just fitting in with European legislation so sooner or later England will follow.

The important point is that the majority is made to suffer for the failings of the unwashed, drunken, illiterate and uneducated minority.

If I drink to excess, which I do frequently, I have bought a little device which tells me when I am safe to be on the road. That's legaly safe and I always give it a couple of hours after that just to make sure.

I can only look forward to this legislation being passed and the traffic plod harrasing my ass to death on roads that I used to play on in the early hours of a summers morning just to make up the numbers.

I don't get it... you get whisky stones so that your whisky will be chilled but not watered down, so why not just chill your whisky?
Title: Re: Alcohol
Post by: Nomad on June 10, 2012, 10:09:37 AM
I could be wrong, but refrigerating or freezing whisky could interfere with oxygen or other elements in the drink that could affect the overall flavor.  Adding something cold to it (ice or stones if available) simply chills an individual glass it to the point where it's cool on the palate.

But it says on the can to not mix it with alcohol. I stick with the beer version of the yagerbombs, although I typcially just pour the shot into the beer glass rather than dropping the shot glass into it. It makes it easier to drink.

"Come hither, my lads, with your tankards of ale,
And drink to the present before it shall fail;
Pile each on your platter a mountain of beef,
For ’tis eating and drinking that bring us relief:
      So fill up your glass,
      For life will soon pass;
When you’re dead ye’ll ne’er drink to your king or your lass!

Anacreon had a red nose, so they say;
But what’s a red nose if ye’re happy and gay?
Gad split me! I’d rather be red whilst I’m here,
Than white as a lily—and dead half a year!
      So Betty, my miss,
      Come give me a kiss;
In hell there’s no innkeeper’s daughter like this!

Young Harry, propp’d up just as straight as he’s able,
Will soon lose his wig and slip under the table;
But fill up your goblets and pass ’em around—
Better under the table than under the ground!
      So revel and chaff
      As ye thirstily quaff:
Under six feet of dirt ’tis less easy to laugh!

The fiend strike me blue! I’m scarce able to walk,
And damn me if I can stand upright or talk!
Here, landlord, bid Betty to summon a chair;
I’ll try home for a while, for my wife is not there!
      So lend me a hand;
      I’m not able to stand,
But I’m gay whilst I linger on top of the land!"

I didn't particularly enjoy the Wild Turkey Honey (though I heard it is better than the Jack Daniels version).  A bit to sweet for me.

I've had the JD Honey.  It mixes pretty well with apple cider or ginger ale.

At first I read that as "Daniel is one of the first warning signs," and I got a little scared because he posted today.

I had my last glass of the Maker's Mark tonight.  Would buy again, but anyone have any other suggestions for good, yet not bank-breaking whisky?  A friend said he liked Wild Turkey 101 more, but he also can be found drinking Natural Light so I don't know if his taste can be trusted.  Also now that I know I like bourbon, my experience with scotch is limited to a single glass of something a friend brought once that was extremely dry.  I don't remember what it called, but I seem to recall an ankh or something that looked like one on the label--I also remember it had a cork rather than a screw top.

Wild Turkey is a favourite of mine, but it's got substantially more bite than Maker's Mark -- which is why I like it, but you may feel differently.

However, the 81 proof version is most readily available over here. I've never tried the 101.
Title: Re: Alcohol
Post by: Nomad on June 25, 2012, 01:28:59 AM
I'm not sure if I'd like MORE bite, I kind of liked Maker's Mark precisely because it didn't have a lot of bite.  Also it smells nice.  Only other whisky I've really had was Black Velvet, which was utterly disgusting.  All bite and no substance.  Even with a substantial mixing of cola it was still terrible, just terrible.  MM I enjoyed by itself.

Jameson and Tellamore Dew are good starting points if you would like to branch out into Irish Whiskey.  I would also recommend Delwars if you would like to try some scotch.

Picked up a bottle of that Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey whisky.  I haven't decided if I like it.  It's REALLY sweet, but I do like that it hasn't much bite for a cheap liquor.  I feel like it'd be great to drink while eating ice cream or something, but it's not much of a whisky to sip while just relaxing.  Smells fantastic though.

At both sets my glass got refilled with champagne whenever it looked close to empty, I got a few glasses with my food (along with two Addlestones ciders), then spent the rest of the night on whiskey of varying kinds and qualities, from Jamesons to Cragganmore) and some coke.

Was watching Black Books yesterday and had to go buy a bottle of wine. And 3 cases of beer. I only intended to buy two cases but then I went to another shop and they were on sale and it seemed stupid not to buy another one at that price.


Ah, Black Books. I almost accidentally'd a wine-lolly recently, which made me realise how easy it would be to make one. Wary of glass though...

If you can afford it I would recommend to always spend a little extra than buy regular Jim Beam. The black label Beam is ok, but there are so many better tasting bourbons/whiskys, like Makers Mark.

Well I am not much into alcohol but I do drink it every once in a while though I still manage to take care of my health. Alcohol is notorious for its calories which lead to numerous complications. Several alcoholic beverages though like the Martini will prove to be healthy, calorie-wise, with the proper ingredients. The sour-apple mix martini for example would only have 160 calories which is way lower than regular beverages, if you have problems with alcohol i recommend generic antabuse (https://www.rx247.net/antabuse.html), Cheers!

I haven't broken the first one in over a year, and I'm in agreement with the other responses that the third rule makes no sense. I drink expensive Scotch because I enjoy the taste of single malt whisky.

I do drink alone, and that's only because I don't know anyone who I can share a good whisky with. I don't see how this makes me an alcoholic; if I never drank alone, I'd never drink the drinks I enjoy most.

I've always had problems with that drinking alone rule. It's often cited as a confirmation of alcoholism. I enjoy a cigar every few weeks and I'll pour some bourbon on the rocks to complement the taste. Now, this hardly qualifies me as a smoker and almost certainly not an alcoholic. If I had a cigar and bourbon every night with company would I be less an alcoholic?

Also, @Parsifal: Enjoy this expensive liquor while you can. When you find a lady-friend, you may discover that you're replacing the company of the bottle with the company of her and I'd wager she'll be a touch more costly.

Then a couple of Mexican dudes I work with bought me drinks, even though I told them not to because I didn't want to get in/get them into trouble because I am not 21. But, it was a good night and I still have my job, so I am happy.

I've become enamored with dark beers too.  It's kind of cool that there are a few out there that are about as cheap as regular piss beer but are so delicious.  I recommend the Firestone oatmeal stout (though it was a seasonal brew when I got it, so don't know if it's still easy to find)

I think it was actually titled "Velvet Merlin."  I also tried a chocolate stout from Bison brewing called "chocolate stout" and it was pretty decent.  Also if you live anywhere near a BJ's Brewhouse, try their in-house porter and stout

Also, you should try out Old Rasputin and see if you can conquer it.  It's not awful by any means, but it's pretty strong and bitter.  it's more what I expected a stout to taste like rather than the delicious other ones I tried.

The most important thing is how many alcohol-free days you have, rather than how many consecutive alcohol-free days you have. Three bingy nights followed by three abstinent days are worse for you than four more moderate days interspersed with three alcohol-free days.

Not quite, but I don't blame you for not knowing what Mother is since you're American.

That is a glass of absinthe and Mother (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mother_%28energy_drink%29), an Australian energy drink. The cloudy appearance is due to the water-insoluble components in absinthe coming out of solution, just as they do when you prepare absinthe with sugar and water.

A truly remarkable concoction which contains all three of ethanol, caffeine and thujone. Also, as far as I know, my own original invention.

It tasted kind of like a kaleidoscope looks, if you can imagine that.

Well, for those in less fortunate parts of the world, Red Bull is the closest energy drink I know of to Mother. It's not exactly the same, and probably even less similar in America where it would have corn syrup instead of real sugar, but it's the closest you're likely to get. Try mixing absinthe (real absinthe, not that Green Fairy crap) and Red Bull sometime.

Note that Mother is greatly superior to Red Bull in every way, so you may be disappointed.

I don't know how to properly identify "real stuff", but what I'm drinking is Mr Jekyll, a German brand which is rated quite highly by customer reviews on the supplying liquor chain's website. It does taste a lot like liquorice, which is fine by me as I love liquorice.

Mead is easy.  Beer is only slight harder.  If you really want to start out easy, make wine.  Just buy some juice, preferably 100% from fruits, and add yeast to it.  Baking yeast works, but wine yeast is better.  Put the cap on, then loosen it a quarter turn.  Put it in a cool dark place for 2 weeks, and you have wine.

I eyed the Laphroaig Quarter Cask in the liqour store today, but decided that 56 euros was too much, so I had a look at the 10 year old variety which was about 10 euros less but read on the label that it's very smoky, and apparently more smokey than the quarter cask even, and I'm not much of a peat-head. So instead I decided to go for a less intimidating looking Speyburn 10 year old Highland single malt for 16 euros less.

Could be worse, but it reminds me slightly of the Glenn Parker I had once which I eventually poured down the sink. But it's nowhere near as bad. In fact, it reminds me of every cheap Scotch Whisky I've had, which is pretty much every Scotch Whisky I've had, apart from the sample bottle of 10 year old Talisker which tasted only like liquid smoke.
And since I'm no expert, I can't really put to words what I find in the taste, but from my limited whisk(e)y experience, I'd have to rate Speyburn 10 year old with 6/10.

Just had my first glass of Connemara peated single malt Irish Whiskey.

Peated indeed, strangely enough for an Irish whiskey. Although not as heavily peated as Talisker, from what I recall, which I by the way didn't like much. I actually enjoy this one though, and I could very well get more used to peated whiskies from drinking this.
I'll probably try out a peated scotch next time.
8/10

By the way, I think I should change my rating of the Speyburn 10yo from 6/10 to 8/10. I enjoyed it a lot more later on.

Now having my first glass of Sailor Jerry spiced rum, which also happens to be my first glass of rum ever, and it's a lot better than I expected. I smelled it at first and thought this won't be good, but the taste reminds me of bourbon and sweet candy.
Perhaps a bit too sweet for my taste, but it's not bad, except for the smell which is way too heavy and sweet and reminds me of sweet Liqueur. I've had worse whiskey than this.

6/10

When I come home my dad is usually drinking Four roses Single barrel, which is his preferred, or some other thing that he decided to try.  Its usually 50 bucks or so for a fifth, and the Gold Label was a 100 bucks for 1.75 liters, so its actually a bit cheaper.  I'm not the biggest whiskey drinker, because its expensive, but both tasted very good, although i thought the smokiness of the Gold Label was a bit overpowering to be honest.

Not when the retail on JW is usually higher than the single barrel, just at Costco when you buy 1750 mls its cheaper(and even then by only like 6 bucks).  Plus I really don't think its that simple.  Its a bit more like coffee than cars, some blends are done to be economical, others are done to achieve a particular flavor.

When Eddy Baby is old and grey, he'll be sitting in his leather chair in a dark room with a fire going. He'll gaze into the fire, sipping his fourth drink of the night, longing for the wreckless promiscuity of his youth and wonder to himself how he became an alcoholic. But it will all be right here on the Flat Earth Society or archived on some obscure website. He'll wish he could travel back through the strained sinews of time that had comprised his life and heed the advice he had ignored while he was still in his prime: To stop drinking.

And, you are not old enough to buy it.

Incorrect. I think one of the few times I enjoyed a drink was when I had a 40oz malt beverage. I think it was called a King Cobra and is supposedly what bums buy because it's so cheap.

Being a bum myself, I have these pretty often. They actually taste like piss. I don't mean that as a synonym for "poor", they literally taste like the dark urine of a dehydrated man.

So PizzaPlanet and I got some cask strength Tasmanian single malt whisky while on the road, and since PizzaPlanet isn't much of a whisky drinker I have a lot of it left over. I am now enjoying a glass of the peated bottle, undiluted at 68.1% alcohol by volume -- that's 136.2 proof, for you Americans. It's like getting punched in the mouth by someone with a fistful of peat, which is just the way I like it.

Edit: We actually visited a distillery and got to pour these bottles straight from the casks ourselves. It was totally awesome.

Felt like going back to bourbon a little bit, so I got a bottle of Maker's Mark last Thursday. Been drinking a bit every night and I have maybe a fourth of it left. At first I wasn't so sure about it, having been spoiled a bit by single malt scotches lately (albeit no overly expensive stuff), but I'm getting back into it. Not bad. 79/100.

Decided to try out a Sherry for the first time so I bought Valdespino Cream Sherry which was pretty cheap. There's a sourness at first at the tip of the tongue which is pretty good, but after bringing it towards the back of my mouth, an almost too heavy sweetness comes out. Need some getting used to. Won't give it any mark just yet.

On another note. I just tried to make some wine out of blackcurrant juice. I fashioned an airlock out of a straw, a piece of a clear plastic bag and a some tape. It's started to ferment and it's bubbling away nicely. Will get back to you on this in two weeks or so.

But I'm currently using a 5,1 liter water container with a bigger opening, and they didn't sell any fitting bungs for that one so I made a hole in it's original cap and fitted a smaller bung in it. Works perfectly.
