What are you drinking right now? - Page 972

But I also don't understand why spiced rums don't take off like gin.

I guess it's not cool enough? Like people don't sip gin. They drink a martini which is classy and cool. Or you add tonic water cuz that's a safe choice. Spiced rum I only see in toddies or bad college punches

I don't know of any good spiced gins on the market. That's part of it. Rum has been relegated to a lesser spirit category until relatively recently. No one has invested in a good spiced rum. I think you can create a market with the right flavor profile. Gin is also incredibly versatile.

I was thinking gin really is spiced vodka. That's where I was going with that

I had some of the Rogue gin that was "spiced" or perhaps just strangely flavored. I believe it was this… not very good regardless.

Wine barrel aged gin? Huh.

the rogue stuff is one of the vilest most disgusting things i've ever had. same goes for their beer

The Alambic's aged gin stuff is pretty great. I have the one barrel-aged for 11 years, then finished for another 2 years in Carribbean rum casks. Barrel strength (131.2 proof). Tastes very herbal actually. Like a mix of gin, Chartreuse and a bit of rum. The ones aged in scotch-casks (Ardbeg/Port Ellen etc.) are supposed to be great too.

Looks like some sort of tequila.

Edit: Yep. Google image reverse search: Clase Azul Reposado.

Rogue's the worst. Ugh. Enjoying a Brenne x Noilly Prat Boulevardier with an HU48 just now. I think the bitterness of the Campari tames the sweet fruit of the Brenne well.

Having a couple of fingers of Colonel Taylor rye tonight trying to kill off the end of a cold.

Was thinking about vermouth and realized that I hadn't had a Chrysanthemum in a while, so I'm now drinking one of those. Nice change of pace.
