monday night I drank a lot of "Old Grandad" bourbon, which can be understood as:

(quality of name)/1 = 1/(quality of overall drinking experience)

Quote from: "robOt"
fuck it. let's talk about booze some more.

promptly list your preferred:

- gin
- tequilla
- vodka
- rum
- brandy
- or even beer.

what & why, of each. i'm thinking of experimenting more with rum and/or gin-based drinks, and want to invest in some primo shit.


Tanqueray 10 - Bombay sapphire is just as good, but I like the citrus notes in the Tanqueray better than Bombay's herbal character.

Don Fernando Anniversary Boxed - I had this in a flight at a tequila bar... to call it smooth would be to do it a disservice. Goes down like water. And at something like $150 a bottle, it better.

Ciroc - This is a french grape vodka that some vodka heads I know turned me on to. Very smooth, none of that rubbing alcohol feel certain vodkas can give you. Nice winelike aftertaste.

Brugal Anejo - This rum is kind of harder to find in the U.S., but it's all over the Dominican Republic. Not too expensive and makes a hell of a Cuba Libre.

Maker's Mark - This is really my workhorse of whiskey. Lately I've been drinking it on the rocks at bars to get away from the beer consumption. It's a little sweet without venturing into Southern Comfort territory (eew....). I'd really like to get some more miles logged with better whiskeys, though. However, this proves difficult as better whiskeys aren't really in my price range at the moment.

Beer-wise, I'm usually up for anything that's either bottom of the barrel (Old Style and Mickeys are my favorite crap beers) or pretty good. Right now Summit Maibock is my beer of choice. It's well-rounded with a touch of bitterness and at about 8% ABV, it packs a whallup. Much like myself.

Whereas expensive gin is the only gin worth drinking, buying expensive vodka is pointless.


This is a downright lie.

Ciroc is awesome.

Also, I have been mixing Vodka and Sudafed.

this was a bad idea.

Curious!  Do you have Cutty-Sark-brand other products?

I really like the scotch.  It's been a really long time since I've had any other whisky, until just a couple of weeks ago; when I did, I kinda wanted to spit up, it tasted so sweet.  I guess the smokiness has really grown on me.

Here's my logic:  You're supposed to taste gin.  Therefore, gin flavor is something you want done right.  You're not supposed to taste vodka.  Most non-Vladimir vodka lacks flavor, so there's no point in climbing the ladder.

Note that most of the gin I drink is in martinis, which for me are nearly straight gin.  Most vodka I drink is mixed into Caucasians, Marys, and tonics.  So that prolly influences my feelings on the relative importance of flavor in those liquors.

No, but the Cutty Sark is this famous ship museum in a dry dock in Greenwich in London and I used to go there with my family sometimes when I was a kid. They had ship's biscuits (or pretend ship's biscuits but I thought they were real) in barrels and I always *always* wanted to eat one. Instead I had to settle for lemon sorbet in a cone from the ice cream vendor that still apparently sells them outside there now.

But if I could have Cutty Sark scotch, it would be almost the same as having Cutty Sark biscuits.

Almost.

I tend to agree, although they sure do smell different to me, and with one caveat that is, I am into flavored vodka and I like it on the rocks straight up and I can taste the flavor, but yeah not the actual vodka.

Here's another thing that a marketing professor of mine told me once about all alchohol, but I have no idea if its true, he told me that the alcohol kills your taste buds after two drinks anyways so he always said, have the good stuff first then switch and he swore you won't know the diff.

But yeah, gin has a definate taste, my usual drink is pretty much G&T with lime.  

Anyone else feel different alchohol affects them differently, I feel like when I drink vodka I'm more talkative and when I drink gin, I get an edge, like meanish.  Shocked I have no idea if this is valid or I have listened to Dr. Jimmy and Mr. Jim too many times?

When I drink wine I get warm and sleepy, and really like nothing bothers me and I like to hug people.

Anyone else experience this kind of thing?

That can't possibly be true, but it's still good advice.  And it comes straight from the Bible!

I've never experienced the tastebuds thing either, but I have a friend who claims that she can't tell the difference between rail alcohol and...uh, not-rail? in mixed drinks, which leads to many scornful looks from her if we are out together and I request Maker's Mark or Grey Goose or something. I have found, and I have no idea if this is even scientifically possible, that the shittier the rail alcohol the worse my hangover the next day. Perhaps the alcohol-responding part of my brain is a total fucking snob?

actually, i'm somewhat sure that this is a legitimate effect and has to do with the relative purity of the higher-quality alcohol. but i could be wrong, and that could just be an urban legend.

Let me just back up my niggaz supporting Old Grandad.  I love buying it at the local liquor store because every time I do, the old guy at the counter tells me the EXACT SAME STORY about his high school graduation, when they get hammered on the stuff and drove off the side of the road in Podunk, MD and the cops came and something something you'd think I'd remember the rest because he's told me the story five or six times now but I just smile and zone out.

Mary:  Yes, rail and well are analagous.  And, also, I think you're totally right about different kind of liquors being different kind of drunks.  Wine-drunk is a sleepy drunk for me, vodka drunk is like party drunk and whiskey drunk is laugh-a-lot drunk. Something like that, anyway.

I also have experienced less intense hangovers with better booze.  So, I'm just confirming all sorts of wild speculation here.  Once, my brother and I drank an entire bottle of Grey Goose, and the next day I didn't even feel hung over, except via my bodily functions (see Hannah's latest post in the drunk poster thread).

And, also, Early Times does not make me hung over, which is my argument that that shit is secretly top-shelf liquor.  And, at 14.99 for the 1.75L bottle, that makes it the king of booze.  My love of E.T. knows very few bounds.

14.99!  C'mon!  It's the size of a listerine bottle! And, actually, a lot like one.  But easier to open.

dude, that's the most flawed-ass vodka logic i ever heard. first, dirt cheap vodka tastes like socks becausethe alcohol in it is really not very pure at all, but more importantly, the texture between a decent vodka and the ABC special is incomparable. besides, saying you're "not supposed to taste" any sort of drink is a bit off, because alcohol tastes pretty strong, and i'd sure like it not to taste like death + gym shower floor.
