Talisker, anyone?



Ahhh Merih, you never disappoint, Talisker is a very strong(for the un-initiated) single malt, with peaty flavour, it really is a georgous whisky. Try one or two then drink the cheap stuff because after 2/3 you're just wasting it.

Hey Dubz! Talisker is the only brand got me into whiskey, made me actually enjoy the whiskey; not down it in order to get stone blind :-) Quality stuff!

Good for you, If you ever come to Dublin I'll take you a wee quiet pub I know called Bowes' It specialises in lots of different Malts and Blends mostly Irish and Scots but a few American and even a Japanese one. As a rule of thumb Irish Whiskies are usually smoother. But it is each to their own, some people like the "peat-y" flavours of the Island Malts whereas others like the smooth taste of the Speyside varieties.

If you like Talisker you should also give Lagavulin or Laphroig a try.


Dubz

p.s. Hope you're keeping well.

Was out celebrating a friend's engagement on Friday night, went for one or two at about 6:30 and left about 2am, yesterday I was in a heap so I went for a "cure" spent another lazy afternoon (4 hours) in the pub and basically just topped up my system. Came home ate a chinese and crashed out about 7pm, missing the big fight last night and waking up at 6am this morning.

Yeah, Guinness is good for you... http://www.deviantart.com/download/141665363/Roll_Eyes_Smiley_by_Mirz123.gif

Yesterday my friend sent me the following text:
I just want you to know you're not only a flirt when you're drunk...but you're mean...and loud!

to which I replied: Excuse me I'm loud even when I'm sober!

cheers Alcohol! ;)

Had two Craftsman Poppyfield Pale Ales last night, a shot of rye (forgot the brand), and a vodka/soda w/extra lime juice....a bit ambitious for a tuesday night and i'm paying for it this morning.

A wee review of a beer recommended by our very own Ricv64...

http://twscritic.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/sierra-nevada-pale-ale.jpg

This is a seriously nice beer.

A lot of "Pale Ales" tend to be bland due to their lightness and the fact that they are usually served near frozen, While Rolling Rock for example is a very refreshing beer it's not exactly filled with flavours and tastes. This is different, it tastes of malt & yeast but not in an overpowering way (like some real ales) It manages heady flavours with a light, clean, crisp taste. It is quite strong at 5.6% but tastes much weaker, I think this is a very deceptive, possibly dangerous, trait if drinking it all night. It is a bit expensive tho' @2.54 for a 350ml Bottle (a bottle of Bud will cost you 1). At that price it is only for special occassions, I would recommend 2 or 3 before switching to your normal (cheaper) brand.

In my humble opinion this is one of the most perfectly balanced beers I have ever tasted.

Thanks MaZn !!
