Drinking Snobs
« on: March 04, 2017, 04:47:47 PM »
This Japanese scotch is pretty good. For the price, it should be... but man... liking it. Different than a Scottish Scotch. Pretty smooth. Great undertones.



This thread is for posting your opinions on new drinks you try. Stop drinking the same old shit. Be awesome and do new things.

I really like Pepsico brand Pepsi from glass bottles. I think it's to do with the conductive material getting the liquid colder? Who knows. I drink it on the rocks, but have been considering getting those little granite cubes you put in the freezer instead? Does anyone have any experience with those? I'm not sure where I fall on the sugar cane versus fructose corn syrup debate - when I've sampled it in America in the past I was drinking for quantity, not quality.

Um. I tried Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey and it's fucking god awful. I normally stick with Crown Royal Black. This shit is as bitter as fuck.

I really like Goldschlagger in Hot Cocoa, y'all. Golden hot cocoa. Luxuriant.

I've had some whiskey rocks for a while but hardly ever use them. They're a real "snob" item to own, I agree. As far as usefulness, I've had them used maybe 3-4x in my 2 years of owning them. If I want my drink to be cold, normally I'm okay with the ice cube diluting the strength of the liquor just a bit. They serve their purpose though, as far as keeping your drink cold. The only problem being that they hit your mouth like rocks if you take a heavy drink.

But you can go for it if you're all about super hard whiskey or whatever.

edit:
I go out of my way to buy Coco-Cola Mexico because it has real sugar in it instead of corn syrup. It is also in glass bottles. Love it.

Weird! They don't sell it there? I can get coke in glass soda bottles with real sugar in the ethnic aisle in the supermarket, or even oftentimes at gas stations. Crazy.

YOU GUYS ARE SPEAKING MY LANGUAGE, NOW!

We keep two bars at home.  Here are a couple shitty pictures.

Our main bar, in our butler's pantry:



And my (small) absinthe bar, in the office:




We're drinking cheap shitty wine tonight, though, so nothing interesting to report!

I was really getting into scotch and whisky there for a while. But now I'm broke as fuck and let me tell you, the good stuff is expensive.

I can't really remember my favorite. Was either the Lagavulin 16 or some year of Glenfiddich.

I remember once I had this Vodka from Costco, like 30$. Can't remember the brand. It was so smooth and warm. That's by far the best alcohol I've ever had, but I've never found anything like it since. Before that I didn't know hard alcohol could actually taste good and not burn like hellfire.

Save honey whiskey for me, I'll drink it all. I prefer my drinks sweeter than bitter apparently. These days I just drink plain Jack for effect.

There's another Suntory whiskey that I've been looking for that comes in a squarish bottle. Hella smooth.

When it comes to Scotches I'm fond of Belvenie 12 or 14. I like my Scotch smooth with body, but not Furniture Varnish.

Also I really like these things

It's called Mexican Coke. Get it 'fore the wall is up.

If you're drinking Japanese Scotch, you aren't drinking scotch.

I've tried a lot of different varieties and I have to say that Mott's will always naturally champion my taste buds in any endeavor.



Mmm. Smooth.

There are far more sugary selections available in the United States that always seem to leave a peculiar dash of something behind, which makes them utterly trite.

Hard-core chocolate liqueur. It's basically 21% alcohol Hershey's Syrup. Sip from a cordial glass or pour over ice cream or angel food cake. MMMMMMMMMMMMM good.

How do you have it normally? Straight? On the rocks? Mixed?

I normally drink rum. Just rum, because I am a sugar addict and you don't get more sugary than distilled sugar cane.

I prefer Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum. Nice sweet warmth going on.

Recently tried Kraken Black Rum. It isn't necessarily bad, but it is a bit harder to swallow than Morgan is. I'm thinking of trying straight coconut rum.

Tend to prefer all my rum straight. Unless there is orange juice nearby. Or apple juice. Just, juice and rum like sugar orgasm in my mouth.

Got my first bottle of absinthe a couple weeks ago (I didn't know we made it so you could import wormwood in the US again!).  I don't drink it often, just a drink here and there.

Grey goose is still my reliable drink right now, and I always keep a half-gallon of it in my bar.  Variables are gin, various types of rum, patron tequila, and kahlua (because I make white russians).

Only 'new' liquor for me in the past while has been more Johnny Walker whiskey; I'm not usually big on whiskey or scotch, but Jay Dubs has been treating me alright so far.

On the rocks (light ice/3 cubes or so at bars if they don't have cubes)/whiskey cube.

Rum is my hard alcohol of choice.

Try Zaya. You will not be disappointed.
