What you drinking.

This weeks work schedule means no drinking for me............. until Friday night.

 

Inspired by the Newcastle Brown Ale post (haven't had one for years), I picked these up today - I've been eyeing up the rum for a while.

 ........... I also picked up a big slab of belly pork - roll on Friday :thumbs:

Well, it's Friday night and, it's not been an easy week so, I'm on the sofa with the dogs watching Netflix :thumbs:

 

I've tried quite a few rums but, this Kirk & Sweeney is the best yet by a long way - the flavours are subtle and not sweet: burnt sugar cane, dried fruit, vanilla and oak and, they develop well.

 ......... it's the smoothest that I've tried - it would be criminal to put ice in it. It would be a hanging offense to even think of putting a mixer in it.

 

I'm going to enjoy a few of these tonight - we'll see what the head's like in the morning 🤞🏻

Don’t get the big deal about putting a drop of water or putting a bit of ice in a whiskey or rum if you like it that way, the flavour is still all there, but I do agree there is no point buying a good whiskey or rum if you add a mixer such as coke  or lemonade, may aswell just get the cheap stuff if your going to do that 👍

The best analogy I can think of is having a good cheese  blah blah more drivel from me...

I dunno a good product shines through often even when mixed,  I like my Irish  coffees and I always use a decent drop , my main drink is vodka which I mix but I always buy good vodka because I get very little hangover same goes for cooking with wine,always use a decent drop.

The best analogy I can think of is having a good cheese , taking it out of the fridge and eating it cold , no flavour , no smooth creamy texture just hard cheese. Maybe a shite analogy but.... I think good vodka works well out of the freezer but I'd still not give it that slightly watered down taste. Some of the most knowledgeable whisky drinker use water and ice who am I, jmho...

I agree with the cheese thing I like a bit of Stilton or Shropshire blue much better when it’s been out the fridge for half an hour but still like my whiskey on the rocks 👍

Yes, agreed - I judge them partly by that as well.  I can live with being a bit foggy in the morning but, a raging hangover is a right shitter.

I didn't know vodka was a sipping drink until a few years back when grey goose was on offer in Tesco , amazing vodka , served ice cold , smooth and fun...
