What is your go to liquor?
I'm looking to get a bottle of gin. Does anybody have any good suggestions?
In my teenage years I had an unhealthy fixation on bombay sapphire, or go gordon's if you're properly strapped for cash
Boodles is a wonderfully unappreciated gin.
I'm also quite fond of Linnie Aquavit.
My favourite thing to drink neat is Campari
>forgets picture after lovingly describing drinking it
I swear though the shit is the best sipping vod I've tasted. Pity it's £40+ per bottle
My SO and I used to drink their rum on occasion a few years back, when I was still a wee underage drinker. It wasn't bad at all, if I recall, but this was only a year or so after I stopped drinking McCormick products, so idk how good my judgement is on that end.
Still, I like their gin alright, and the bottles have a cool texture. Not sure what other gins I've had, if any. On the rare occasion I go to a bar, I order gin sodas, but never specify a brand or top shelf, well, etc., so I have no idea what else I've had. Is pricier gin really worth it? I like the look of Bombay, but I always just drink gin (or occasionally vodka) and whatever flavor of La Croix I'm feeling, so not sure if it really matters.
Hope I'm not intruding on your thread, OPee.
hendricks if you don't mind dropping ~30-40/fifth
sapphire if you're looking for something in the 20s
new amsterdam if you want decent gin for like fuckin 13 dollars
the great thing about gin is that it's not nearly as costly to produce quality shit as bourbon and scotch are
>A nice bottle of armagnac
Hey, /ck/. What constitutes a nice bottle of armagnac? I know about Courvoisier and Hennessy and Remy Martin, but there isn't really "that" brand for armagnacs.
Any cheap but good brand out there for this stuff?
best gin coming through
better than bombay, bombay sapphire, tanq, beefeater, plymouth, gordons, hendricks, and seagrams
What's a good whisky (bourbon) for a beginner?
I've had JD shots at clubs, but I'm after something to sip at home.
My dad used to drink pic related. I don't know what it tastes like though. My first gin was Seagram's and it was like a pine tree exploded in my mouth or I huffed Pinesol.
If I want to sip something, I gotta go with El Dorado 12 Year. For mixing I keep Evan Williams white label around. Lots you can do with it. As for gin, Booker's is a good cost effective option, and Tanq 10 is good if you're looking to spend some money.
Campari is fucking amazing, although personally I prefer it in a Negroni, which is the best cocktail of all time. Not only is it delicious, but it also provides priceless expressions from people trying it for the first time.
>Meet brother's girlfriend for first time at other brother's apartment
>Brought makings for negronis, because fuck yeah
>She sees bright red pretty drink in a martini glass
>"That looks tasty, what is it?"
>"It's called a negroni. It's absolutely delicious."
>"Let me try!"
>She to this day claims I tried to kill her with it.
>Friend of mine also loves negronis
>Orders one at a bar
>Guy who came with him laughs
>"What kind of girly drink is that?"
>Bartender leans in
>"It's a drink that'll put hair on your chest!"
Bombay east is good for a mid tier gin. Anyone else here make bloody ginnys? (Bloody mary with gin instead of vodka, if you didn't put that together)
>Tequila is the best though, any other liquor cannot compare.
