They are pretty common so should not be a problem to find.

Good inexpensive coffee. I go through one brick a week which totals $7.96 a month. Works well with a french press.

A decent iipa without excessive pine and a decent good complexity. A little muted in tropical fruit flavor notes but a good alternative to brews such as Dogfishhead 90 minute ipa and Great Lakes Chillwave or Lake Erie Monster.

I still vividly remember a weekend trip to Coevorden (Netherlands) when I was with the mobile calibration team out of Giessen in the mid 80s. KDR (another service member from Giessen) and I went bar hopping and literally drank 30 different brews. It’s a bit sad that fewer and fewer American service members will experience service in Europe and interact with the people of nations where former bases are located. Over two years of three month streches of TDY (living in hotels and making a bit extra for doing so) while making regular stops in northern Germany and The Netherlands was an amazing opportunity.

Anyone remember the bombing of the US Army barracks? If I hadn’t been given a direct assignment which was unusual I would have been there when it happened.

Gave away (on behalf of my dad, who bought it at the distillery ages ago) a bottle of Cardhu single malt (wow what a complex nose!) and discovered I like Kraken rum last weekend..

This week we’re into these:

What a shame
50 years of age and still not smooth as butter Sad
with an angel share of a mere 0.364 it is clear those sellers have to be some damp not pleasant to be in spaces.
Only paying for age and the extra brain activity when tasting but objectively almost all single malts of 15+ years will have a same character and almost all 20+ years with a %/Acl of 40-45 will be smoother
Even if I had the money I would not get this Wink
Get the Macallan sherry cask series instead, all of them, plenty of joy and richness to be discovered then at just a fraction of the price Big Smile

One of my stops was near RAF Bruggen. Loved the $0.25 Guiness and hard cider (yes, 25 cents a can) at the NAAFI. One of our guys had his clearance revoked and was reassigned because he watched static testing of harriers across the fence about twenty yds away. I worked with Hank Wells (involved with the development of radar and HP signal generators – he told me about the chocolate bar incident as a firsthand account) – and Andy Griffith in Giessen. Both were great guys and UK citizens. It was always thought provoking to re-cal an item with H G Wells on the DA label 80.

FWIW, across the field from our barracks in Giessen was a Hawk missile battery and later (after major excavation) a Patriot missile battalion. I always found it a bit humorous seeing a herd of sheep mowing the grass near the barracks on the Giessen depot. Miss the imbiss pommes mit mayo, rindscury, and halb hanchen.

Wasn’t ‘smooth as butter’ but I have fond memories of ‘Chivas Regal Royal Salute’ (21 yr old). Couldn’t afford it now but back in the ’80s it was very affordable at the class 6. Not butter smooth but close.

Chivas is nice
I bought two “century of malts” bottles 5 years apart.
Made with whisky of which some are no longer made, so after a few years it can (and did) taste slightly different.

Wine tonight. Started with a 2011 bottle of Nice Legs Chardonnay and finishing with a 2009 Merlot from the same. Chardonnay has a nice flavor profile and the merlot lacks the excessive tannins common to the type. Both are well made inexpensive wines ($4.99 on clearance).

Talk about whisky and cognac,
here is a fun thing to do, and all can be used,special or basic.
one needs a bunch of glasses (preferably cognac glasses but wineglasses will do fine, 1 icecube, 1 icecold object (we have stainless steel cubes in the freeer), something to drop 1 drop of water with, a completely full teacup completely full of water too hot to tough, but surely not cooking (the chosen cognac glass must be able to placed in this with the round liquid containing part in the hot water, hend by the rim so it is diagonal hangen in it)

Pour the same amount of whisky/cognac in
a glass with icecube
a glass with ice cold object
a glass
a glass, having the water drop apparatus ready
a glass for the tea cup, hang it in the hot water, since the teacup is full this ought to be done at the kitchen sink, a normal sized teacup and a regular cognac glass will have enough space in the cognac glass to pour a normal quantity of cognac/whisky in, but you might want to use a smaller teacup is it is hanging too horizontally. when the drink is poured, gently roll the glass to it heats up evenly

let the smelling and tasting begin!
The difference in taste, richness, smells is so interesting.
the adding of one drop of water is really interesting, it liberates a lot of scents and sometimes you can actually see it “break tension”
1 bottle, 5 completely different experiences, works with other drinks as well.
This helps you choose the best brand of most liqueur, there is no hiding behind scent/taste dulling old for wodka for example.
And the coolest thing it, you dont need an expensive bottle to make drinking it a party. Have a friend who likes a drink, doing this is a party.

I did this often to guests when I worked in bars.
Whn somebody ordered whisky on the rock, I gave them a look, and two glasses, 1 as ordered and 1 on saucer, teaup with hot water, cognac glass with the whisky. Surprised look, “I didn’t order this” Replying, “it is on me”
Almost always almost the entire group ordered the hot whisky next round and often a second round with a little more expensive drink following that Smile

Thanks to the “what you ate today” topic I am gonna take a stab at sauce Hollandaise.
Reading a little it was clear I would have egg whites left over
So I decided to make a nice Pisco Sour, love that.

What gives no more Pisco
Mafenit with gin, but it doesn’t have that special zing.

Oh well still OK
Rich foam with the bitter stuff scent
Gonna order a bottle of Pisco soon Smile


Oh I use the straw for stirring Wink

Well besides half a bottle of gin (and after the first glass you se depicted above a quarter bottle of my own flower/honey/cognac mix to add some zing (totally worked!) Ibused 7 big limes, freshly squeezed, so it is healthy Big Smile

Almost bought that as a chaser for yesterday night’s Sobieski but decided to go with grapefruit juice.

I wouldn’t drink that… Check the label> it is fully processed (100% from concentrate…)

By the 80s fruits juice was being marketed not just as a health drink, but also as the key to a stylish, modern life, a status it enjoys today.

But while the juice in the supermarket is often sold as ‘natural’ or ‘fresh’, it is usually anything but.

Concentrating juice doesn’t just remove water, it also removes the flavour. After it has been reconstituted, manufacturers add ‘flavour packs’ cocktails of chemicals which restore ‘natural’ oranginess.

You may think ‘not from concentrate’ juice means a more authentic product. You’d be wrong.

Juice made that way is heated and stored in air-free tanks for up to a year.

Again, the process strips the juice of flavour, which has to be added afterwards. But the flavour packs contain fruit’s flavouring so don’t have to appear separately on the ingredients list.

But yeah… V8 packaging sounds powerful…

Definitely not equal to true freshly produced juice but better than most sodas or juice ‘coctails’ with high fructose corn syrup as a primary ingredient.

I don’t drink alcohol. Never have seen any benefit, but a lot of tragedy.
