    I’ll keep it simple:

    Beer: Guinness, La Chouffe and La Trappe Isid’or.

    Whisk(e)y: Old Pulteney 17 Year Old, Yellow Spot (Irish) and Yamazaki 12 Year Old (Pretty decent Japanese one, although overpriced). Fancy a Highland Park 18 yo as well. :)

    Never cared for wine, vodka etc., but share your thoughts.

    It’s all about tactics;
    All day session….Tennents or larger of similar quality, last few rounds Jamison & Ginger.
    Social (few drinks, aporox 6)….Guinness with/or Jamison & Ginger.
    Special occasion….McClelland with no mixer.
    Road trip….4 to 8 cans of Guinness & Buckfast wine.
    Poker/Card nights….Must be a bottle beer (hosts choice) Jamison & Ginger (host must provide but winner of first game pays for it).
    Bricklayers Arms…..Strongbow (pitcher)

    Alco-pops should be banned after 16 years of age and ID should be compulsory to buy wine i.e. a hand bag or high heels!!

    Enjoy Japanese poison.
    Beer: Asahi, Sapporo
    Whiskey: Hakushu 17 Y, on the rocks, or i will go for Laphroaig

    Almost exclusively its those two. Hate vodka and the likes. I have a problem with clear alcohol. It just doesnt pass through my system well enough.

    You mean Hakushku 18 yo? Pretty good stuff. Only had a couple of drams in the pub (2 months ago), might pick up a bottle in the near future.

    Yea, 18 years! lol.
    I went to Japan last year, and there was a death of whiskey. They had all the brands for sure, but without the years. Now the available bottles with years are sold at a higher premium, and its quite ridiculous.
    Visited every liquor store in Tokyo and Osaka, and i couldnt find any Yamazaki, Hibiki or Hakushu 12,18 Y.

    I think Boo knows more about these things, but the prices in Singapore are affected. up by 50%.

    Normal Friday/Saturday Night : 6-8 Pints of Larger (normally the weaker ones similar to Fosters or Carlsberg) followed by as many gin and tonics as I can cope with, but the gin cannot be Gordons gin, that stuff is dreadful, normally Hendrix, Bombay etc. has to have a lot of ice and a slice

    Casual drink in the evening, bottled beer, such as Budweiser

    Sunday roast dinner, a few glasses of a good red wine, chateauneuf du pape is lovely

    My girlfriend used to drink this. I know it is well-respected, but I don’t like it at all. And she’s always bitching like "buu whisky is despicable".. Well, grow some sense of taste.

    There’s a shortage of the well aged Japanese whiskies. And of course it takes time 12, 18, 21 years to increase the supply. I don’t like whiskey, but when a mother lode was discovered at a liquor store here in Chicago, my whiskey loving friend in California had me buy 4 bottles and bring them back to him since I was headed out west anyway. He bought me a $100+ sushi dinner as a thank you.

    hahaha I forgot to mention that I am a Whisky fan as well, but it has to be Single Malt. Old Pulteney is a favorite of mine as well

    Jura is quite nice for a cheaper bottle as well.

    Comes from having Scottish relatives!

    Amstel, Heineken and Grolsch.

    Old Peculier, Riggwelter, McEwan’s Champion.

    La Trappe Quadrupel.

    Bourbon – various brands.

    Never cared for Scotch, rum or brandy, and haven’t had vodka for years. I like red wine with food, and drink one glass of white a year (with Christmas dinner).

    I like to keep it simple.
