Only the day before yesterday, I managed to procure something valuable for Wargaming - original T-25 plans from the archive that is not accessible anymore (how, that's a complicated story, doesn't matter).

 

Completely off-topic, but you've peaked my curiosity.

Who cares about Garbad or SilentStalker.

 

I'd like to raise a more serious issue. You've been talking about Whine, Whiskey and even mentioned Vodka. But what about Rum? I prefer Danish Navy Rum. Mildly spiced and easy to drink. Of course, a bit expensive to just get drunk, for that I usually resort to the good old Captain.

 

Look out for Old J, a Persian vanilla rum, very smooth indeed.

Personal favourite is the cheap n'nasty mount gay rum.  Somehow, the low expectation of quality given the price makes it really nice as it tastes good.

You should really learn the meaning of Slander before using it, if you wish to pursue a personal case against SS for something he has written against you it is Libel.  If however he has spoken to you and said such words that were untrue, then it is Slanderous.

 

Personally I sit on the fence with my popcorn watching the fun and every now and again click on my arty for fun.

Another favorite Rum is the fomerly called Blue Mauritius, now called Gold of Mauritius. Not spiced, but rather sharp in taste. Definitly not something for the ladies.

 

One Rum I haven't tried much yet, only tasted it and gave it as a gift to a friend, is Don Papa. Very interesting taste, orange or citrus flavored.

You should try sometimes. There is a whiskey for almost everyone out there. If you're not so much into the smoky whiskey area, I might suggest a Clontarf 1014.

 

I've medled a bit in Scotland in my younger years if you catch my drift and can't say I remember this, might have to give it a shot when I can get my hands on it for a friend of mine from Russia, we drank some Laphroaig - 18 Years Old last time and so far I didn't manage more then a glass in one evening, I was gagging on the taste to be honest :(

If we are on wines, why don't you guys try mead? Different drink, but in the price of reasonably cheap wine and much better.

 

Oh yes, (honey) mead is delicious if "brewed" correctly, difficult to obtain though over here in decent quality and quantify for a fair price

have you tried villa Maria? a super white real under valued gem also instead of champagne I like Jacobs Creek sparkling sheraz very nice and no where near as pricy as champagne.

 

New Zealand, interesting, I located a store with it, will get myself a nice bottle.

The only "official" way to get it is by driving up to the Abbey yourself.. That is, if you manage to make an appointment by telephone (they have one phoneline that is always busy). If and when you finally manage to get through, dont even try showing up in a car with another license plate than the one you registered when calling.. Ah well.. not too much trouble for 2 cases of heaven methinks.

 

Or you can just go into a local bar here that has a private stash.. 15€ a bottle :tongue:

€15,- a bottle... Ah well, I paid €10,- already for a bottle of Ola Dubh in the pub here, so who cares.

I wouldn't have the courage to drink that. Having drunk too much of the stuff, that name might sound like a suggestion and I'm pretty certain I'd regret that afterwards... :hiding:

You just have to order it before you get so drunk that you have trouble getting your words out in the right order.

I do a lot of cooking but almost no baking. It just seems so much effort compared to what you can just go out and buy in the shops.

 

Ye jesteth old chappe.

 

Home baked cheese scones are just so much better than shop bought ones.

 

  1. You can triple the amount of cheese
  2. No baking powder whatsoever
  3. Warm with butter.

 

 

And then you have Chocolate cakes

 

A thin smear of chocolate like substance on the top – no way! – four 1lb bars of Cadbury’s melted all over the top – mind you it was harder to penetrate than a T29’s turret, but what a taste!

 

 

With regards to wine, I understand the French view of things, that wine is not just an means to an end (quick way to get schlosched) but a warm living thing that needs to be enjoyed, preferably with good food, but sod that, I’m English I like to quaff pints without having to waste time on solids, so I tend to go for an ‘easy drinking’ New World CabSav or a Merlot, anything over 13% will fit the bill.

 

As for malt, well I won’t spend more than £40 ish on a bottle, however with our good friends over the Border kicking off a few months back I suddenly realised that the malts might get hammered by tax so searched around for a substitute and found that Jamison’s is good enough for me. I just don’t have a good enough palate to differentiate, it’s not that it hasn’t been educated, by god no, in fact my palate has been kept back for extra lessons, but I just can’t get the difference enough to hand over an extra £30 per bottle just for the thought that it’s better.
