I've read good things about that tequilla, but have been unable to part w/ $50 for it. Do you know what quality of Scotch, Cognac or Bourbon you can get for the same price? Tequilla is, after all, kind of a wild - yet simple and uncomplicated - liquor. Costco had 1.5L bottles of a silver called Milagro that was absolutely of the finest quality. Not as boldly flavored as some high dollar silvers, but it was smooth going down and easy on the head the next morning.

DL30: With a scotch collection like that maybe you can field this question for me. Ever try Talisker? I've been told it's plenty peaty like Lagavulin, which I much say I am a huge fan of. But I haven't tried it, and at ~$50 a bottle I'm always tempted to pop for something tried and tested instead like Oban or Cragganmore.

The only reason I've had both the El Tesoro Silver and the Reposado is that my roommate at the time was having a party while I was out of town. When I got back, I noticed that there was only a shot or two left in the bottle Reposado (which had been nearly full prior to the party). I told him how much it cost me and asked him to replace it. He accidentally got me the silver instead. I was a little miffed that it wasn't an exact replacement, but it was a chance to try something different.

I hope he enjoyed those margaritas!

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Peter, El Tesoro is the brand that I have heard much buzz about, but yet to try. One day...

Highly recommend Talisker - I've tried Laphroaig, Craggenmore, Glenmorangie and the commercial stuff like Glenfiddich. The only one I've ever bought more than the first bottle of was Talisker. I drink it with an ice cube and a dash of water ... and I don't consider myself a scotch drinker - I'm more of a beer and vodka person.

ringmir: I don't think I have ever tried Talisker, but SeanF gives it a good rec. If it's similar to Lagavulin then I would give it a go. I love the peaty scotches although sometimes Laphroiag seems toooo peaty, almost like chewing on a chunk of peat.

Back to beer. For those in Chicago, If you are a fan of Guinness, Go to Mulligan's in Roscoe Village. They have $3.00 Imperial Pints as a daily special. It's kind of a unfriendly bar, but they have 5 real dartboards as well to pass the time between ordering more Guinness....

i just noticed the beer thread was falling down the chart, so i thought i would get it back to the top..

while at the bar the other night, i strayed from my usual lone star(gotta stay loyal to TEXAS), and ordered a pabst blue ribbon.. now, the last time i had one, was when i was about 12 years old, i used to steal them from my dads stock.. anyway, it wasnt bad.. it had a little bit of a sweeter taste that i dont like in beer, but definitely drinkable..
