Best vodka money can buy IMHO.

I wonder if that's available in Australia... 🤔

🤔 I remember moonshiners discussing these things and looking down on taters something bad. Like, you only use them if you really can't get grain at all because taste is 🤮

I'm not a big vodka drinker, but as I understand it, potatoes are harder to work with than grain so if the distiller is going to try to make it as neutral as possible then it's better to go with grains but if you want flavor, and I don't mean the flavored vodkas, to go with potatoes. At least, that's what I was told by a local distiller so take it with a potato of salt.

That is also how I understand it. Making vodka from grains is a lot more foolproof, which is why the vast majority of vodkas are grain vodkas. You have to really know what you're doing to make a potato vodka and not screw it up.

Proper no. Twelve Irish whisky. It's decent, not much else to say about it. My local ABC Spirits has a rather meager selection of Irish whisky, it was Prop 12, Jameson, or some raw sewage.

My latest batch of mead just finished brewing. I switched up the formula this time, adding blueberries and lemongrass rather than raspberries and mint. Time will tell in terms of the flavor, I need to let it mellow for a while, but from the glass I tasted I suspect removing mint was a mistake. I'm still experimenting so it's all good. In terms of potency I think I finally hit my target. I've been aiming for around 9 - 10 % ABV and I think I'm right around that, maybe slightly stronger, basically typical wine strength (11 - 12%).

I currently have a bottle of Absolute Vodka in the cupboard. I'm not a big vodka drinker, but it's Ok for mixing with orange juice or whatever.

Ironically, there is one vodka I really do like (just like Roku Gin is the one gin I really like as is) and that is a domestic product made in South Australia (St. Agnes Silver). Sadly it's impossible to get outside South Australia unless you order it online and have it shipped to you. The St. Agnes distillery also makes a Brandy that is as good as any good Cognac. Same deal though, you have to pay for shipping to get it . Not so much an issue for the Brandy, when you pay close to $1000 AUD for a 40y old Brandy, the shipping is trivial

I bought a bottle of this just for the novelty. I dont even drink rum:

That's the rum I used to make rum raisins a while back. My bottle didn't attack Illinois, though. The rum & cokes I made with the rest were quite tasty.

You probably already know but Kraken comes in the normal 90 proof (45% ABV) and 94 proof (47% ABV). Theres 19 versions of the limited edition: Kraken® Attacks Collection | New Limited Edition Bottle (krakenrum.com) Looks like the promotion ended in 2021, which explains why the bottle was covered in duct when I found it.

Mi Familia Flores Reposado Cristalino Tequila.

This is easily among the best tequilas I have had. Easily destroys most competitors in the price category. Very strong recommend.

Yes. I had the 94 proof variety, so had I drank the whole bottle at once perhaps I would have been ready to attack Illinois. Although, I probably would have been more inclined to attack the District of Columbia. It's closer and a lot more worthy of attacking.:-

Look, I don't care where a Kaiju attacks so long as it does. The Kraken can go after Illinois, DC, or the small English town of West York****mesitershire and I will be equally satisfied.

Illinois is a weird state for a Kraken to attack, not exactly an overabundance of seaside cities. I suppose it could attack Chicago, but how much damage could a Kraken do to Chicago? Waterfront properties, sure, but any Chicagoan at least 1/4 mile inland can just laugh at the Kraken while eating kielbasa. Now, King Ghidorah, on the other hand, could **** Chicago up!

The Kraken will have learned to fly, will bring the water with it, or will be capable of manipulating spacetime to attack kielbasa eaters somehow. I don't know, I didn't make the bottle so it's not my responsibility to make the Kraken attack happen. But it needs to happen.

We're not even 1 Kraken attack in and you're already jumping the shark? Come on, you don't pull ridiculous stunts like these until at least the 3rd or 4th kaiju attack. We need to keep this grounded and gritty at the start. Forget Illinois, it's not going to work. I got this. Venice. Eh? Eh? Kraken could wreck Venice and we don't even need it to have any special, non-Kraken specific powers. Just imagine the Kraken scooping up a gondola with one of its tentacles and hurling it into a crowd of terrified Venetians. *chef kiss*

Blame the makers of Kraken rum, they're the ones who think a Kraken attack on Illinois made sense.

Since you mentioned sharks.......KRAKENADO. Not only does it tie in to an already existing trope of a tornado pelting people with aquatic monsters but Chicago is known for being windy so it fits. So we go a tornado, which the Kraken may or may not control, which will carry the Kraken around Illinois so it can terrorize everyone. Sounds like a perfect setup to me.

Dunno what it's called but I was at a party and had a ****tail that was brown sugar bourbon, coconut milk, orgeat, and a little vanilla extract. Was garnished with a maraschino cherry and some charred cinnamon sticks. Going to try to make it at home.

Old fashioned with brown sugar syrup, chocolate bitters, and Chesnut Farms bourbon. I dig them.
