What else do you drink ?

Recommended Posts

Just lime most of you my booze drinking isnt limited to craft beer so what else do you drink and is it a 'crafty thing?

In cooler months I enjoy my bourbon and over new years I decided to try Gin as well (photo).. which was in between my jello and jagger shots :).. can also make this non-alcoholic I enjoy my coffee too!

I’m a fan of Canadian Club and dry. When I build my keezer I’m going to have a permanent tap for pre mixed spirits

Spiced Rum, lime and Soda water.

Classic margarita is my favourite summertime poolside drink. None of that premixed crap in my margarita thanks, or salt for that matter. Tequila, triple sec, lime juice.

Yeah I have, I thought it was great. I’ve only tried one though, think it was 5 rivers spiced rum from memory.

Luckily didn’t drive up there to get it. Probably be closer to your joint Ben ha ha nah probably only a few days.

Just like one of my favourite musicians, Jack and Coke*. When I get sick of drinking beer, I switch to that. It was my only drink for years actually until I found the craft beer stuff.

*I mix it myself, not a fan of the RTD stuff.

I like whisky (Scotch), especially the peaty Islay single malts.

My favourite is the Lagavulin 16 year old.

I picked up a couple of bottles through Duty Free recently. An Ardbeg 10 year old (very nice) and a Benriach Peated Quarter Cask. The latter is ok but I should have bought the Ardbeg Uigeadail instead.

I am not much of a spirits drinker.  However, I had to pour a Jack and Coke when I live streamed his memorial service live from LA in January 2016.  It was 9:30 in the morning here, but it was a memorable occasion.

I was at a bar watching it. They gave us all a free one at 10 when they were allowed to serve alcohol.

Did they just give it to you or did you have to say “Lemmy have one for free”?

Circuses began on this premise.

I'm with you there. Love Lagavulin. Also Caol Ila. Loved Tobermory when I was in Scotland, but have only found it here once.

Yep, Oogie is great, wish I still had some of my bottle left! But, try one of Douglas Laing's Big Peat if you can find one. A vatted malt, but well balanced despite the name and dodgy label and knocked Lagavulin off my favourite Islay scotch spot. I prefer it to the rest of the Islay staples I've bought bottles of as well... Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Caol Ila, Bowmore, Bunnahabhain (although I do like this a fair bit). Haven't tried anything from Bruichladdich or Kilchoman yet though.

So yes, I like Islay scotch whisky. Don't mind the other Scottish regions, but Islay is my favourite. I read a fascinating book about the island and distilleries' history, would love to stay there for a few months one day, just explore the rugged terrain and weather and visit every distillery. Maybe in 30 years time. 

I also white wine, particularly riesling, semillon and marsanne with a bit of bottle age. Don't mind trying different chardonnay and things like gewurtz, gruner vetliner, vermentino etc. 

And red wine, I like shiraz, cab sauv, cab franc, the maligned merlot, temperanillo, graciano, sangiovese, pinot noir, malbec, barbera, zinfandel, durif, petit verdot, plus enjoy trying new varietals and the same varietals from different regions.

And a big fan of fortifieds, topaque/tokay, liqueur muscat, tawny. Also don't mind the occasional botrytis dessert wine.

The problem is there's so much yummy stuff to drink, and so little you can really actually drink while keeping things in balance!

Cheers, 

John

@porschemad911 Might be easier to list what you don't like! 😛

I liked Glenkinchie when it was a 10 year old, but not so much nowadays.

Marsanne is a specialty of my local winery, I'd expect you to be able to roughly pinpoint my location on that!
