Nope. Sample pack sent out by a Distillery.
Blantons and Coke in a highball.
Nastro Azzuro on special for $45 at the local franchise bottle-o 2 minutes down the road?
Done deal, 2 cases, home James, and don't spare the horses.
Hey, who won the Origin the other night? (he asks... knowing the answer is inevitably going to be "QLD LOL")
I don't really give a shit, but current advertising has influenced me into believing that Handegg (in all its myriad and intricate forms, nod to miicah) and Alcohol Consumption may never be separated.
Winning this evening - visited my local Uncle Dan's and got Coopers Sparkling for $51.90 ($10.09 off) and Teeling Small Batch for $54.00 ($5.99 off).
The more you buy the more you save!!!
Nice! I'm in the process of trying to get some Teeling! Let me know how it goes!
I found it delicious, but far too smoth. real kick of vanilla. It's great if you want something without the burn however, a real real easy drinker.
I've been drinking it since it came on shelves locally, also having a crack at the single malt and the single grain. If I could afford it as a quaffer, the single malt would be my pick.
I prefer Teeling to Jamesons, Bushmills, Tullamore Dew etc as a whiskey. I've not had Red Breast yet which is supposed to be in the upper echelon as far as Irish goes.
The single batch is 46% ABV though so take it easy
And there's nothing wrong with those others I mentioned, I just like the Teeling better!! Mmmm....whiskey......
I concur on this, no real scotch burn that you associate with it as a bev.
I second the single malt, at the $80ish I've gotten it for the past few times it's probably not my favourite but its a very easy drinker with a good flavour profile and goes awesome with some instant coffee over icecream. Simple and quick poor mans tiramisu
I was thinking about getting another bottle of spey river, maybe i might try teeling.
Nothing overly dramatic but just had lunch with a mate and had one of my favs.....Hoegaarden
Dans has remy martin VSOP for $65. Cold nights, warm cognac
Just one? I can never stop at one Hoegaarden.
lol, it was my work lunch break, so one is enough
gin and tonic with chambord tonight (again)
makes me go red in the face lol to match the chambord
Currently drinking Mercury Hard Cider, mostly because I wanted to get shitfaced ASAP. And I swear to god the smell singed some nose hairs when I cracked it...
It's one step up from glass cleaner...
The old Mercury Black was three steps down from glass cleaner lol. I used to be able to get fuck eyed on a sixer.
Man right now, I'm feelin pretty fuckin jazzed! (on my 5th). Going to be paying for it tomorrow. But fuck. They are pretty decent for what they are.
I originally went in looking for the Draught. The hard cider has been on Mainland for ages, but the draught was hard to find (and I didn't even know there was one till I went to Tassie).
Yeah I have destroyed a whole lot of the draught over the years, there's not really anything else like it. It gives me heartburn in my old age though.
That's why I started drinking Draught, cause stronbow etc was wreaking havoc on me, but the Mercury didn't.
isn't the likes of Passion Pop and Little Fat Lamb cheaper if all you want to do is get smashed?
