A wise man once said the best single malt is always 18 year old S.B.E. Wink

Whilst appreciative of Scotland's finest, I was always partial to Greek brandy.... Metaxa, actually...

Is it absinthe that makes the heart grow fonder?

I seem to remember the French trying to ban sales of absinthe on account of regular drinkers going blind, evil stuff.

Absinthe?!?!?! Feeling half sick just thinking about it.

Reminds me of horrible, horrible nights in the olden days. We'd put the sugar cubes on the old absinthe spoon, pour a little absinthe over it, and light it on fire. The sugar melts into the drink below, and when it's all done burning, you stir the rest of the sugar into the absinthe and "enjoy". I use that term loosely. Very, very loosely! Maybe it's better in light doses?

For those of you who haven't "enjoyed" absinthe yet, here is the very accurate progression you'll go through... Smile Neutral Shocked pale Embarassed silent followed by an unpleasant daze and sweating.

I'm glad the old days are over!!!

I usually don't meet a scotch or brandy that I don't like, but Metaxa is one of 'em. There is something in either the water or soil that gives the Greek spirits an odd (to me) after taste which I don't care for (Ouzo excepted drunken)

When funds are good, single malt of whatever vintage. Don't like the peated phenolic muck, more like something which could clean drains.

After a GAS attack Lidl "brandy" + coke does the job. Also OK glugged in coffee. This is actually the perfect diet to sustain human life as it contains all four of the main food groups; caffeine, sugar, fat and alcohol clown

My God - This is uncanny!

Don't tell me that you drink the cheaper of the Lidl Brandies (Majestat) together with the cheap Lidl Cola (Freeway non diet) and the Lidl Coffee with three sugars and milk?

If you tell me that you hate most salad (rabbit food) and can't really go quiche then that really would be more than a coincidence.

I'm pissed on the stuff again!! - But Hey!! It's Tuesday

Good man Roger!! - although you really do have to up your sugar intake - it (together with alcohol and animal fat) is the fuel of life.

Bar for the salad & quiche eaters, you all sound like a lot of soaks, still I guess it go's with the territory. Twisted Evil

So whats wrong with a nice cup of tea, or Kings tea with a drop of scotch in :heart: Mm..................

Don't like to mix the grain & the grape & I like a bit of grape, so it has to be a nice old Cognac or Armagnac, don't really go with strumming though,
still like a cup of tea for that. Rather partial to a Gin & tonic too Very Happy

LIDL!! Brandy & Coke ''come on'' Westbone, it'll poison you. clown

Canadian Club - straight from the plastic bottle, followed by a chaser of Sundrop over ice. I used to use Mt. Dew, but it's so sweet and syrupy. Sundrop is much more citrusy and really knocks out that whiskey taste. If you time your breathing right, you never taste the whiskey.

Short of intravenous or enema, this method gets the alcohol into your bloodstream the quickest. And I don't get hangovers either - something to do with the caffeine and sugar in the chaser.

Do I have a problem?

I found myself with a gout problem a few months ago and have given up alcohol (and beef, pork, and shellfish). I don't miss it near as much as tobacco (my oldest friend).
