No foolin' I have been so pleased with the "Real Tesoro" Cream Sherry I have bought at Trader Joe's for the last 3 or 4 years that I tried their cheapest Whisky (Trader Joe's Blended Scotch, $9.95 per liter). For many years I have only tasted rather expensive single malt Scotch, a 20 Y.O. The Macallan being rather memorable.

Not at all bad with Jalapeno Chiles, green olives and peanuts. It made an interesting mix with the sherry as well. (Older "The Macallan" has been aged in sherry casks that evokes a number of images- oak forest to grape vineyard, to Spanish solara, to Scot Highlands). Recreated with a weak palate, cheap whisky and a splash of equally cheap sherry.  I would really enjoy some blind tastings.

So, if DrDr Dipshit ever wants to pay off cheap, I'll settle.

The quiz is easier if you assume the least disgusting choice is the one they made up.

I must recommend a most delightful Scotch Whisky, The Balvenie.

That I have been drinking it from 150 year old crystal merely added panache.

Earlier today, I had a vegetable sushi of cucumber, carrot, and avocado with a sashimi fresh albacore. Tomorrow, I'll have some smoked albacore, raw green onion, sautéed garlic + red pepper, on a hard roll, with Heineken beer.  

Life is good.

Sounds like yummi!

I just spent 2 weeks in Belgium, and let me tell you: their gastronomy is quite awefull.

I'm flying to Basingstoke on tuesday, and I will make the most of my girlfriend's kitchen.

I guess my first choice will be a nice roasted lamb shoulder with flageolets. And a Merlot to help it down...

Really? I spent about 5 days in Hasselt (not exactly THE cultural center of Europe) and had some splendid meals - in a little pre-war hotel no less. They hotel house wine was a marvelous deuxieme cru from Graves - simply stunning from my perspective. This from the Flemish no less. Granted this a bit ago, so maybe things have changed.

Of particular interest, after some fantastic rack of lamb for me to wash down some luscious bisque and some Cornish hens my boss devoured, the waiter came out with a big grin and even bigger bowl of 'pomme frites' thinking, I suppose, that we 'Mericans needed some instruction on what actual fries are all about. They were completely unparalleled - nothing like anything one can get here in America.  

Perhaps that was a fluke?

I was fishing ~150 nm southwest of San Diego California earlier this week. I brought home 2 albacore ~10 lbs each, and 2 ~20 lbs. About 30 lbs of meat. The trip cost ~$400. Market price for albacore is $14 / lb, so I beat the market.

So, this week we have had albacore sashimi, grilled, and smoked. Yesterday I fished for bass in the kelp beds. The boat was rather crowded with 39 passengers but I managed 5 bass over 12 inches. Very nice seared in olive oil with just salt and pepper.

Jameson is still my favorite!

I tried the "gold" edition in Belgium, and I have to say it is nothing out of the ordinary, especialy for 45 pounds a bottle (or 8 Euros for a 4cl shot).

I'll stick to the regular stuff..

Grey squirrel or red squirrel?

Either way, that's just ghoulish.

I rarely drink beer. A friend suggested Yuengling (it is not sold in Ohio).

Any suggestions for a good dark beer?

French chefs don't unfreeze that well. I would advise a steady watering (room temperature, if it's not a morgue) for about 4 hours. Then stuff, add garlic, and off you go!

I would have suggested going to The Anderson's general store and just asking in their beer and wine section, but it doesn't appear that they have a location near you.  Since you aren't a beer drinker, I'd suggest finding a microbrewed Milk Stout or Nut Brown Ale. The ale isn't super dark, but is darker than your typical American mass-market beer.  Both styles are lighter on the hops and heavier on the malt, which will be smoother on the palette for a newbie.

You could drink Yuengling every day, and still claim you rarely drank beer.

I don't know your taste, but try a double chocolate stout by Brooklyn or Youngs, if you like the flavor of chocolate.

I bought a bottle of Teh Balvenie for my son's bar mitzvah (it being 12 yrs seemed somehow relevant). It is now twice as old (as is my son) while half the bottle is still there. Says more about my utter teetotalingness than about the taste. Does the taste of Scotch change/improve in the bottle?

Nevertheless, on a flight back from Crete yesterday, British Airways inflight shopping convinced me to buy a bottle of Penderyn Welsh Whiskey. The Penderyn distillery seems to have a number of distinctions:

- only Welsh distillery now operating
- only distillery in the UK with a female master distillerologist (whatever they call it)
- smallest distillery in the world

My sons are eager to help me do the taste test vs. the Balvenie.

ps - I was in Crete for my second honeymoon (in three months). We stayed at www.amirandes.com which was spectacular and low priced in USD. I asked the waiter in the authentic Cretan restaurant to choose the wine that was made closest to the hotel, and got a wonderful white from the village of Dafni.

While in Poland, my girlfriend's father bought me a bottle of D?bowa , Polish Oak Vodka.

I wanted to keep it for my return to Nice, but since I'm stuck here in Basingstoke until Saturday because of a strike from the French Air traffic Control, I decided to have a taste.

Well, I used to think ?ubrówka was the best Polish vodka, but I stand corrected. D?bowa is tasty, really smooth, and doesn't give a headache.

I should have bought more!

This past weekend I drank coffee and I drank beer. Will not do so again for a long time.

Back to morning tea and evening wine.
