Re: booze thread

Don't really like wines but Glühwein on a cold winter day is nice.

Re: booze thread

getting serious on wine at the moment, retain a love for port

saw a bottle of Quinta Noval the other day... only 1400 euros (2000 vintage) haha

got some Gosset champagne which was very crisp, lovely.

as for wine would recommend Pegasus Bay, a kiwi Pinot Noir from Otago,

That doesn't surprise me at all.

Re: booze thread

I don't drink often to get drunk. Only when I'm pissed off or need to get my head completely empty. Getting drunk is usually just the result of drinking, not the purpose. And I rather have one great beer than three not-so-good ones.

Talking about beers, I don't know what's wrong with the beer served in our dorm's parties. A few weeks ago, I had a horrible hangover and started feeling bad already when drinking my last beer. OK, I was quite drunk but even then, that happens to me hardly ever. In the following week I didn't drank so much but had again a hangover. There must be something in that beer.

And nothing beats whisky when you want to relax a bit after a hard day before going to bed.

Hoegaarden is nice, but I prefer more straightforward German-style lagers when I want something light (which is most of the time). Not a fan of Corona (too watery for me) but I do remember Pacifico being ok. I'll generally go for a good brown ale if I want to drink beer like wine (Dogfish Head Brown Ale). Unfortunately I rarely drink beer as I find it's too expensive when taking alcohol content into consideration. I can't drink to just get a slight buzz, and one beer is never enough for me.
Well yeah, 1 beer is obviously not enough to get drunk, especially if you've gotten used to the student parties around here, we Finns aren't exactly known for our sophisticated drinking culture .

But watching a movie or sports, having a beer or two with mates, it's great and the purpose isn't to get drunk there... at first at least

OTOH, I find most cheap beers and vodkas undrinkable. No artificially high price would ever trick me into thinking a beer or vodka was high quality when it wasn't.

Ruski Standard is indeed one of the better Vodkas, I like it.

Re: booze thread

cheap bars usually use the smirnoff here



otherwise the absolute is used in the other clubs I use to go to.
I used to drink vodka and white martini but I'm more up for a wine even in clubs nowadays

Kauffman is good too

Re: The psychology of pricing wine

^ I don't want to pass myself off as a vodka aficionado or anything. My main goal is to find the cheapest possible vodka that has little unpleasant burn or rubbing alcohol quality. Sobieski fits that bill best for me atm. Fris used to, and Luksusowa is also decent for the price. I prefer Absolut, but it's a bit pricey for my budget. Some vodka drinkers prefer a 'pleasant' burn (I don't, which is why I like the very smooth Absolut) and Russian Standard seemed to pull that off best of the vokdas I've tried (Stoli and Ketel One also have that).

To give an example of an ultra-expensive vodka that does nothing for me, I've had Grey Goose twice now and I honestly don't think it's as good as Sobieski (which costs about a third of what Grey Goose does). Finlandia's another one that's more expensive than Sobieski (though more in the range of Absolut than Grey Goose) but I'd never pick it over Sobieski.

Re: The psychology of pricing wine

what are the best vodkas in your opinion?

(now that I think about I could have posted this in the booze thread)
