Looking forward to this as a moving in present
I had one of these earlier.
And one of these.
it was free
Not a huge fan of Paulaner. Its bouquet is sort of farty.
Can't say I noticed anything farty, unless you mean bananas, in which case I am envious.
A really, really strong Espresso. Man, I didn't get enough sleep.
a cup of Darjeeling.
I've already posted this in the "pictures wot you have took" thread but since it also applies here...
Coffee wine. It works, it's mellowed out, it's good!
Reccomendations for someone who doesn't "like" whiskey but has only ever tried JD if that makes sense?
A beginner whiskey you may say.
Haa I'm not sure I can get away with that on tours of three distillerys for a stag doo in a few months.
Well I always find whiskey goes down a lot easier after a few pints. So I'd recommend getting mildly pissed before hitting the distilleries
1) Find out which distilleries you're going to.
2) Buy some of their warez.
Personally I got myself onto whisky from JD with Auchentoshan. Not too sharp, and most people I've offered it to, whether new to it or seasoned drinkers have enjoyed it. Worth a punt.
Just cracked open a Wychwood Golden Hobgoblin. For a big commercial beer it's a lovely pale ale and the cascade hops really shine through (surprisingly for such a commercial beer).
I rekon this is so light on malt, body and colour that served from the fridge, it could convert lager drinkers.
a mug of Darjeeling Thurbo
- at work: Mao Feng green tea
- at home: a martini based on Hendricks gin and, well, Martini vermouth (extra dry of course), followed by a pleasant Bordeaux Superieure from Aldi.
- Sencha Shimizu Oki Yutaka green tea, followed by China Yunnan Black Gold. Tonight it's the rest of the Bordeaux Superieure and possibly a "Lindt Bomb": a dark Lindt chocolate ball with an espresso poured over it and a shot of coffee flavoured vodka.
