Time To Wind Down.

Recommended Posts

I can't do the laphroaig, way to peaty and smoky for me I prefer the sweeter scotches, my brother likes the peaty scotches, lagavulan, I know I spelled it wrong, I bought him a bottle of Jura superstition, tastes like a oak flavored leather belt, he loves it

Joeydwachmaker,

The big thing in the USA at the moment is southern moonshine. It commands extremely high prices and tastes like lighter fluid. A huge order for Tim Smith Moonshine was placed by a European distributor. Once the customers tasted it they cancelled the order. I wonder if it would work in an ultrasonic cleaner to clean watch parts.

Mark,

With all of the wonderful available English draft brew like Thigstons Old Pecular, why on earth are you drinking beer from a bottle?

Only 5 choices in my local 7/11 if memory serves. Chang, Leo, Heineken, San Miguel Light and Singha.

Certainly no British gourmet beers to be had here in Thailand :P

Where are you staying, in the sticks?
By Privy Council's order, any 7-11 must also carry Cheers (try the new riceberry) Carlsberg, Bud, Asahi as a very minimum. I've also seen Lao which is pretty good. For more imports go to Big C. In a pinch I recommend Singha over Chang, much less hangover from it.

I mentioned 5 as far as I could remember - I don't have a forensic knowledge of every beer stocked. The point was that there is no English (or British for that matter) draft beers available in my local 7/11

I like Chang ;)
I prefer the taste over singha.

From my non-British taste position, that's actually a plus :D

Lol. I do miss that beer in my OP. Sold in Morrisons. They have a nice selection.

I most likely won't be in England until September so it's Chang until then. I do miss my Kronenberg :(

Great stuff guys.  Just been to my annual pilgrimage to our local CAMRA real ale beer-fest. You get a free pint glass so the cupboard is now getting near full (28 so far).   Link below gives list of all ales etc.  Never ever had a bad head the day after as no 'chemicals' in the real ale.  Now started doing some nice gins but not tempted to mix, hangover assured !!

Hello, just read the post from Canthus, I am also a CAMRA member and look forward to April when I think the next festival is in Newcastle. However, I only get a free half pint glass at the festival !!! This is patently unfair.
Cheers
Vic

It looks like single malt Scotch wins the day.

Nice Rob! We can't get that brand here in the US but my "daily driver" is a Macallan 12 and it work up from there. Also in the US there is a boom of "micro distilleries" that produce some very nice bourbons

that gets my vote, I always buy single malts, enjoying distinct and widely vary tastes......but as my Grandmother was fond of saying "there's no such thing as a bad Scotch"
