Drinking Jamaica now...
Can't remember the last time I had one of these. They were a staple in college for us. I'm now more of a craft ale guy and its not as good as I remember it, but it will do.
It's been one of those days where I feel a need to poke into my now-depleted reserve of nice teas, haha. TWG is a favourite of mine, their Silver Moon is absolutely beautiful on the palate but they do a damned good (French, haven't yet tried their English) Earl Grey too. My only real complaint is the cost— they're a "special occasions" make definitely.
Wine from Armenia
Tropical fruit explosion
Cause sometimes you feel like having a drink on hump day...
Location: Cigar Bar
Drink: Old Fashion with Bullet Rye double serving
Cigar: Montecristo Espada
Manga: Fist of the North Star
Mixed up a couple of Margaritas with some nice Milagro Tequilla. On the rocks. Good for sipping and unwinding after a long week.
Some delicious Guyanan rum... Definitely the best of the El Dorado Rare Collection that I've had so far (Albion, Enmore and Skelton).
Went to a restaurant with my parents, wouldn't serve me because they don't serve until the day after your birthday.
We left and went to a different place, now sipping on a glass of Weller 12. Damn this is good. $300 a bottle though. Seemed cheap so this place, $20 for a glass.
@famish99 had no idea you were such a rum connoisseur. Some nice bottles - envy!
He's a dangerous man to talk to. I'm taking his advice and having a lot of fun trying some of these rums:
Photo from a SMWS tasting kit I tried the other night and Monymusk Rum.
It's very hard to get these boutique Rums in Australia but the SMWS has been featuring some of the stuff Fammy recons is worth trying and have to say that he is not wrong. I'm a mad keen speyside guy and some of these Rums feature all the best quality of top end Scotch with incredible complexity and intense and lingering flavours.
The rabbit hole goes pretty deep. What are some of your favorite bottles?
Enjoying this glass of yamazaki 12. This stuff is good. I might like it better than the Weller 12, but I really like Japanese whiskey.
I’m nowhere near as experienced as you, but exploring a bit of hogo of late with S&C. Other favorites Rhum J.M. VSOP, Plantation charcoal-filtered “white” aged, Appleton 12yr.
Feel free to pm me if you need any suggestions.
The colour on this.. It's basically cola level of dark.
