Death in the Afternoon?  Sounds familiar?

If you like dry gin (as opposed to the nasty Dutch stuff), you should really try this one.
I used to go for the Tanq or the Bombay, but not any more.

Thanks Wilber...  I procured a bottle of said gin, shook it vigorously with just a drop of Martini and Rossi Vermouth and had one hell of a martini....  I soon grew tired of the shaking, pouring and icecubes and started drinking straight from the bottle like the true alcoholic I am and was pleasantly surprised by the quality....

I am very intrigued by the idea of qat liqueur, that is a very impressive indulgence. Is the shrubbery grown locally or imported?

Grown in California from what I have heard.

Right on! It's a staple in my cabinet. It's one of those rare "Organic" products that's neither over-priced nor disappointing. I actually find it so flavourful I rarely add the vermouth.

Alcohol makes me cranky.

http://www.thesequitur.com/images/stories/PhotoPool/Adam/coff&cig.jpg  Poetry: Ode to Coffee and Cigarettes By Nate Elam

Look into my blurry, morning eyes and you may see a man you do not recognize.

A man that would steal candy from babies, spit his gum onto a crowded sidewalk, watch as old ladies cross dangerous intersections, let the door close in your face, pretend not to hear as you ask me to hold the elevator or steal the gas pump you have been waiting on for five minutes.
That would squeeze the toothpaste from the top of the tube, spin the loaf, leave the dishes undone for a week, wet towels in the bathroom floor, the garbage in, dog out, dirty socks everywhere, lights on and seat up...

A man that, were it not for that first strong cup of coffee and heavenly cigarette
would be capable of fixing elections, abandoning kittens in December, eating puppies, using the last roll of toilet paper without telling anyone, burning the library at Alexandria, running Auschwitz, or voting for Nixon.

And so,
Thanks be to the Virginia tobacco farmer and the coffee bean picker of Guatemala,
thanks to the House of Maxwell and Mr. Phillip Morris.
It is you,
Who just this morning has saved the world from a man who,
Were it not for your efforts,
Would be the antichrist.

Right this minute, a Sonoma Loeb chardonnay.   Generally I do not drink many white wines, but it was in the fridge and jumped into my hand.  Quite nice, acctually.

http://high-street.org/uploads/thumbs/206_tullamore_dew.jpg


I bought a bottle of this in the duty free shop in Denmark because I had never seen it before, and didn't think it was offered in the States. Cost the equivalent of 15 USD. It got sealed in its duty free bag, then loaded in my carry on for the trip to Dulles. After a genuinely wonderful flight to Dulles aboard Scandinavian Air (the europeans apparently still understand how customers are supposed to be treated by Airlines) I transfer to United for my domestic flight home. I forgot about my treasure until I hit security. The TSA agent escorts me out of security and I check my carry on to the tune of $75.00 which the United ticket agent took great pride in being a cunt about. I toyed with the idea of ditching the bottle, but I thought "By God I can't get this in the U.S., I am getting this baby home!" Check my bag and go back through security, where another dumbass TSA picked me out of line for wearing the same clothes that I had worn the previous trip through fifteen minutes earlier,without incident, and even though I was flying on Military Orders and Displayed said orders and my military ID (my last trip for the Navy, hurrah!), I got wanded, and patted down in front of the whole fucking airport, after waiting for them to get around to it for  thirty minutes. I get to the airport bar for a well deserved beer, and greeting me is a large sign informing that they offer Tullamore Dew. Apparently it is widely avaiable in the U.S.

It has an odd taste which has been described as similar to envelope glue, smoker's breath, and reminiscent of polish vodka, and this bottle has lasted nearly a year now.


I refuse to allow myself to believe that it is anything but the finest whiskey I have ever had.

Great story. 

The liquor store nearest my hovel carries a green Scotch. 

It's Scotch... that's green in color.  I guess for St. Patty's day or something?

I have not had the balls to try it, but I'm suddenly tempted.

Tullamore isn't bad for the price. It's no Glen Livet but for 18 bucks, I'll share a bottle of it.
