ElLoco: LandOfChocolate: That sounds extraordinarily hipster to me

Instead if reveling in your secret knowledge, how about sharing it?

It's a chick drink. Picture something with an umbrella in it, but purple instead of red or orange.


Wrong actually. Was totally unawares that the name had been hijacked. My bad.

Alright, I am going to shamelessly use this thread to solicit information.

I've found I am a real sucker for Jim Beam Devil's Cut. But the snob in me feels kinda weird drinking Jim Beam. Is there a name for that style? Are there similar higher-end bourbons?

Ooba Tooba: spunkymunky: Ooba Tooba: Can anyone pount me to an excellent rum to sample?

I'm a cheap bastard. I drink Sailor Jerry. Best rum I've ever had is a Belizian brand called One Barrel. I honestly don't know if it's the greatest thing I've ever drunk, but some good memories go with it. I need to find another bottle and compare.

Why thank you. Sailor's isn't bad, but occasionally I long for something more refined.


Mix it with Moxie. It becomes a distinctively different cocktail.
I like to use 3-4oz of rum per can of Moxie for most enjoyable results.

Ooba Tooba: Can anyone pount me to an excellent rum to sample?


I can point you to several.

Ron Zacapa Solera 23 is great, but a bit pricey for what it is.
Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is also excellent. It's a little thick/syrupy but it's also utterly delicious.

Coing cheaper than that... I get on well with Havana Club 7. If you're in the USA though, Havana Club 7 is not available because CUBA, and anything going by the Havana Club label in the US is a cheap Bacardi ripoff.

St Lucian Rum is pretty good, I have a lot of time for Chairman's Reserve ("Forgotten Casks" if it's available and not too expensive)
Errrr.... Ron Millionario from Peru is very tasty.

I've probably tried 70ish rums in the last few years, and those are the favourites so far. That I can remember. There seems to be this problem with memory when you sample more than a few in a single evening.

Oh, if you're in the mood for a spiced rum (and I often am), Captain Morgan's Private Stock is delicious. I tend to think that most spiced and flavoured rum is cheating because it's masking the rum flavour with buttloads of vanilla and what have you, but that one is just plain awesome.

Yes. If you do add vermouth, a tiny splash should be added to the shaker, shaken around sans ice, and the excess poured out. Give it to the dog or something. Pour it in a houseplant.

The problem is, there is this margin. A tiny bit is fantastic when applied right. The problem lies in application. Once you cross the line and add even one drop to much, the whole drink is ruined. Takes on a cloying flavour that is gag inducing. And it is damn near impossible to find a bartender that actually knows how to make a proper martini, with all the confusion about vodka martinis and appletinis and pre-measured drink dispensers and whatnot. So it generally isn't safe to order a martini. So, you order straight up gin. Or as you called it, the alcoholic option.

Oh and I suppose if you have money to burn, then stepping up the scale -

Zacapa XO is delicious, but around $100US per bottle.

You should totally get a bottle of Diplomatico Ambassador, at around $300 per bottle, and then give it to me because I've never tasted it...

And if you *really* have money to burn, lay out some cash for a bottle of Black Tot. It's probably not very good, but it's a piece of history - the very last of the traditional British Naval Rum that was issued to all sailors in the Navy (at 11am no less) up until July 1970, when the practice stopped and so did the distilling. Some years later a cache of the stuff was found and it's now for sale at only £610 (~$1000)...

Similar to whisky, but aged in barrels that were used to make port.

Scotch is whiskey -- just whiskey made in Scotland.


I should have been clearer. When I said similar to whiskey, I meant similar to how normal whiskey is made. But the port barrels are an important part of the process.

I'm going to have to call bullshiat on all the vermouth hate. If you are using proper dry vermouth that hasn't been sitting in the fridge for months, it doesn't matter if you get a "drop too much". I could understand a bad martini if some joker grabbed the sweet vermouth instead, but good dry vermouth doesn't kill martinis in any amount.

Martini "connoisseurs" do like to go on about looking at the vermouth bottle or just a drop or pouring in the vermouth and dumping it out to coat the ice. But I'll let you in on a little secret - that's not a real martini. Might as well go ahead and order some pansy appletini if you are going to skimp on the vermouth

There is no Step 2.

Gothnet: Gothnet: Ooba Tooba: Can anyone pount me to an excellent rum to sample?

I can point you to several.

Ron Zacapa Solera 23 is great, but a bit pricey for what it is.
Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva is also excellent. It's a little thick/syrupy but it's also utterly delicious.

Coing cheaper than that... I get on well with Havana Club 7. If you're in the USA though, Havana Club 7 is not available because CUBA, and anything going by the Havana Club label in the US is a cheap Bacardi ripoff.

St Lucian Rum is pretty good, I have a lot of time for Chairman's Reserve ("Forgotten Casks" if it's available and not too expensive)
Errrr.... Ron Millionario from Peru is very tasty.

I've probably tried 70ish rums in the last few years, and those are the favourites so far. That I can remember. There seems to be this problem with memory when you sample more than a few in a single evening.

Oh, if you're in the mood for a spiced rum (and I often am), Captain Morgan's Private Stock is delicious. I tend to think that most spiced and flavoured rum is cheating because it's masking the rum flavour with buttloads of vanilla and what have you, but that one is just plain awesome.

As a 20 something man, I sort of agree. However, I do like knowing why I like what I like so I can try new bourbons/whiskys/scotches and have an idea of what to expect.

For me, it isn't about being cultured. My liquor tastes are actually pretty narrow and old fashioned. Somewhat obscure even, but not in a hipster sense, just in the sense that the world has gone mad and a bunch of dumb coonts had to go and ruin something good, like a martini. A martini should be a strong piney drink. There should be gin. A tiny bit of vermouth. Or just run through a room with vermouth located nearby. There shouldn't be vodka. And there shouldn't be anything called an appletini or a chocotini or any other dumb crap like that.

Simple pleasures. Like a Tom Collins or an Old Fashioned.

For me, it is a Tall Dark Stranger. Go ahead. Google it. You will not find it. It is a very old, pretty much forgotten drink from a hell of a long time ago. Hemingway loved them and drank them copiously.

I bought it for the bottle.  I wouldn't even call it drinkable.  It was an angry black bottle of blech.

I left it at a friend's house and he drank it for me.  Then he accidentally threw out the bottle.

The point of the clause is to prevent Canada and Mexico from distilling their own bourbons and selling them as such. It ensures that anything distilled or sold in Canada/USA/Mexico as "bourbon" is in fact genuine American bourbon. Without the clause, the USA's legal definition of bourbon has no effect in those countries. See also: jurisdiction.

A pair of recommendations for your cabinet:

cigarbrief.com

I can't stand to see a man have nothing but Glenfidditch in the cabinet for scotch.  Any Islay would help - Oban or Bowmore are also good choices, but Laphroaig Qarter Cask and Laphroaig 10 Cask Strength are my "go-to" scotches. 

As for bourbon, find some of this:

Up until about two years ago it was frustratingly difficult to find (they stopped selling it in the US for something like 40 years for a stupid reason).  Fortunately, that has changed.

FredSpeaks: areeves79: Count me as one of the "drink what you like crowd", if you like it then that's all that matters.

I usually drink Bourbon, but I've been known to drink other spirits & liquors too. I'm usually willing to try something at least once.

This is my current favorite in my "collection":

I also prefer it chilled.

Here are some pictures of my liquor cabinet:

Whatever you do, do not open Maker's White.  You will unleash an evil on your stomach and mind, the likes of which few men have seen.


I made that mistake already, it is indeed evil.

tinfoil-hat maggie: one bourbon one scotch one beer.
That's all I have to say, except I love the taste of a good bourbon with a couple of ice cubes and the way the flavor changes as they melt.
