Remy was OK, but wouldn't spend a lot on it. Courvoisier VS more or less comparable. Also have some Feckin whiskey. Will need to try it again, but I'd rather go for the pricier Jameson 12. And I think even that I didn't think was better than the Asbach. Different, but not necessarily better.

Hennessy XO is quite good. The VS or VSOP varieties are not quite up to par, however.

For $130, I would hope so. Is it worth _that_ much?

More people have probably heard Bulgogi, and having to explain it removes some of the fun. :D But thanks for the word, hadn't heard that one. Once had a shrimp, Moo Shu.

Getting drunk has never been my goal. But I'll keep that in mind if it becomes one.

8O Is that the price you buy it ?
Well ! Forget that then.
BTW : VSOP is only meaningful to the British !
So I assume that we put that stamp just in order to...
Oh wait !
If you go on Cognac then just look for "Grande-Champagne" (It's not a brand, its a region of Cognac (Like Speyside for the Highland malts)). 130$ is about the price for a "Grande-Champagne" Cognac around there.

No. But if you want a nice tasting brandy, that would be the one.

I prefer vodka.

I'd never buy it for that price :D. That was just what came up with a google search.

There's another brandy I may try. Supposedly did very well in tests vs. much higher priced stuff. But the guy who recommended it also recommended Feckin Irish Whiskey, which is nearly Feckin awful. OK, it isn't that bad, but I won't buy it again. It will be mixed with Coke until it is gone.

Vodka is OK. Most of the ones I've tried aren't great. I have Belvedere, and it is pretty decent. Certainly better than the other handful I've had. Which one(s) do you prefer?

Chopin vodka is quite good. A Polish potato vodka with a slight apple finish to the taste.

My usual is Svedka.

Vodka does not have any taste at all - except alcohol. So babbling about 'taste' is like babbling about the 'soft orange finish with a hint of muskrat and and an soft but full afterglow' in wines... bullshit.

Of the ones I've had, I seem to prefer potatoe (as is, IIRC, Belvedere). I'll see if I can find shot sizes of either.

Vodka does have taste, but I can't apply adjectives to it (any alcohol for that matter). My first "test" is whether or not I can distinguish it as a beverage or a replacement for JP-8. I've tasted one wine that actually seemed "spicy." It was the only time I can think of that a beverage tasted like one of the adjectives used to describe them. Otherwise, wine tastes like wine. Nasty.

Go taste some Frïs & some Chopin. Back to back... tell me that you cannot taste a difference after you have done so.

When I do any sort or beer or cigar or whatever tasting, it is easier for me to relate the tastes to sounds than it is for me to say something has a hint of cocoa with earth notes.

The dark full bodied taste of an Onyx Reserve cigar is like how a violin concerto in a minor chord sounds, for example.


Although with coffee, I do sounds, aromas and tastes.

I have yet to smoke a cigar that doesn't taste and smell like utter shit. YMMV.

wow, I didn't know that you would be so flexible - tasting your own balls - and I always thought of you as some kind of faux-hawaiian 'heavy boned'...
