Drinking & The Booze Bags Thread

Recommended Posts

Do you think this thread should be merged with The Whisky Club given that no one, including me, has posted there recently?

Anyway, today's new arrival is Benromach Cask Strength 2009 Batch 4.  Quite smoky for a Speyside but nicely balanced with tasty raisins and currants.

First trip outs since lockdown, went to a tapas bar for lunch, very good bottle of 7 year old rioja and several glasses of chilled Fino - strangely enough I felt quite relaxed afterwards :biggrin:

The latest concoction we saw being served in a local boozer that I had to try.

:biggrin:

Strawberry Slush Puppy with a couple of shots of Vodka and a Blue Wicked, slowly drinking it through the straw drains the bottle as you go.

Bloody hot last night so a four pack of John Smiths went into the freezer along with the glasses and drank them with @rolexgirl at extra cold lager temperature!

Just found my new Gin. After years of sending Mr. Bombay on holiday with the amount I spend on the stuff, just discovered a firm favourite. Honeycomb gin. If you like the taste of a 'Crunchie', this is for you. It's like drinking liquid Crunchie. Where do you find it? Aldi...and be quick, because it's a limited edition. I've already stocked up...well at £14.99, who wouldn't.

When standing, it has a pleasant honey colour...

However, give it a shake and it shimmers with gold dust...

As this is a sweet gin, drink it with lemonade...tonic is too bitter for this one.

That looks pretty amazing, Roger. I shall have to bifurcate in the direction of Aldi tomorrow!
 

By the way, congratulations on your 30,000 posts! :notworthy:

Thanks, Steve...tbh, I hadn't noticed the PC...I was aware it was coming up because  I thought I might retire as a mod at 30K, but wasn't actually counting. However, I had second thoughts and have decided to stay on for the forseeable future.

Be quick at Aldi...it's selling out fast...I had to visit two outlets yesterday as the first had sold out. You'll probably find it near the tills as a 'special' at the end of one of the aisles.
