I Just Bought a... (Wine, Spirit, or Beer) - Page 6

post #76 of 2027
A couple interesting bottles to flesh out my bar:
- GRAN DUQUE DE ALBA - Spanish Brandy
- LUXARDO - Maraschino Liqueur

A couple re-stocks:
- RON ZACAPA - 23 YO rum
- Weller 12 - 12 YO bourbon

And a find:
- William LeRue Weller - Antique Collection bourbon

Coincidentally, I just got a bottle of Ron Zacapa 23 yr rum as well. Looking forward to trying it. Also got a large bottle of Ron Abuelo Anejo which is a really great rum for the money. Have been learning more about digestiffs so picked up Luxardo Fernet Amaro. It tastes pretty harcore.

So how is that compared to "Fernet Branca" & "Underberger" ?

Does anyone have a beef with Irish whisky? My first experience was Bushmills and it wasn't a good one. I am a Scotch man anyway, and I try to grab what is available in my area. In the past few months I have been sipping on Dalmore and Pultaney. The usuals are MM and Jack. Any comments?

I keep telling you guys, these posts are useless without pictures! Help a guy out who is having withdrawals from his usual buying patterns.

Limoncello, which always invokes Italian memories.

Alright, you talked me into it. The bottle behind the mostly empty Woodford is a Derby-edition Woodford bottle with a neat painting of the race that I thought was cool enough to pick up (and who doesn't need more Woodford?). I like to keep it simple so just rum, bourbon, and scotch for me:

Would not be able to tell you yet . Fernet Branca is on my future purchases list while Underberger I would need to research. I am just getting into Italian Amaros.

Simple, perhaps, but this is all some solid stuff. Makes me want to do better in the rum department myself....

Might I recommend Pritchard's (the colored version, about $30-35 a bottle), an American rum that presents as a decidedly bourbon-esque take on rum. It's very different than the South American stuff that I usually drink.

How's that Centenario? For some reason that bottle is sticking out to me every time I view the picture (which has been a lot, i'm a liquor pron freak). It looks like it'd taste good, even thought that probably sounds dumb considering you can't see the actual rum.

It's a very sweet, easy to drink rum, lots of caramel to it, it blends in with most anything. At $20 it's a pretty good value for mixing when you don't want to break the bank when you're just making a rum and coke with friends.
