Smile Drinking Club!

Like book club but without the intellectual pretense. Simple.

My point was McClelland's Islay Single Malt Whisky (Which is actually 5 year old Bowmore hiding under another label ) is on sale for $37.99 at The Mill. Not as refined as Tempest but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying it to take the edge off the nippy weather .

What are you enjoying? What bargains have you found recently?

Asti spumante or Lindauer?

Actually I need to be a bit boring as well soon and find a nice port for winter. UK port is different though, I've never found something comparable here.

Do you not yearn for something else? Everyone has favorites but I always feel a trip to the bottle shop is wasted if I don't return with some research. It's for science after all.

Usually top up on the New World of Countdown offers. Generally buy Montana, Jacobs Creek, Wolf Blass or Hardys when on offer. $7.99 for a bottle of Wolf Blass cabaret sauvignon is a bargain!

Prices of whisky horrify me! I have been tempted to purchase from the whisky galore website recommended but the mouth can wait till November when family are bringing over 2 bottles of ardmore whisky that they purchased for a tenner. Aaah we can wait, I doubt i'll ever see Glenfiddich 16 year old on sale for anything under $60

I really have got into Speights since being here but nothing is better than taking advantage of Fresh Choices beer offers. $24.99 for 12 pure steinlager or $24.99 for 15 pure steinlager - hmmmm whoever thought of that, thank you for giving me 3 free bottles

Oh I also bought this caprihana brazilian drink for around $40 a few months back. It was ok but very sweet. The cocktail you make from it allows you to have a monthly sugar rush within one sip

My favourite shop, when I lived there, was 'The Whisky Shop' in Lincoln (UK), it did sell some other drinks, mainly spirits, but had a stock of, maybe 200 diffferent whiskys, they were mainly single malts as well. The had on shelf stack of single malts, bottom shelf were priced £25 to 30 a bottle, and the higher shelf you looked at the higher the price, top shelf was usually in the region of £300- 400 a bottle, some of these were 120 proof as well. Always had to have a look in when passing, and sometimes bought a bottle, think my most expensive was £50.

Smile Re: Drinking Club!

I've been giving whisky a rest and venturing out into other spirits. I had thought I lost my taste for rum after a particularly unfortunate encounter with a bottle of Coruba but recent experience has taught me that a fling with an exotic rum can be very rewarding. Whisky is still my prefered thinking/talking/listening drink though.

So recommend me a rum that will knock my socks off. Something bold, difficult to handle and full bodied.

Not my drink of choice,so I'll ask around. My husband is partial to a kicking rum - will get back to you.
