I don't know anything about beer other than I like Guinness and spitfire
It usually comes in pints, or two-thirds if it’s a hipster beer <roll>

I’m like that with beer, into my craft beers from the likes of Verdant, Northern Monk, Wylam etc and if I go into a pub and all they have is crap on tap I don’t even bother drinking or just go somewhere else.
Brown Ale is my go to beer when I'm in a pub with a s*** selection.

I have a decent collection. About 50 or so bottles. Varies from stuff I drink a lot to a couple of expensive bottles. Nothing more than £500 though.

It's nice being able to drink what ever I feel like, it makes going to a bar for a drink a constant dissapointment though when I have much better at home....
Strong effort that like. I've started out on few 'distiller editions' and a couple of whiskies with batch numbers.

Ha, I know what you mean - I judge a bar/pub on its top shelf and if there isn't at least a few good whiskies on offer I won't be there long.

I need to stock up for Xmas. Still got that bottle of 2015 (or 2016) William Larue Weller, paid £125 and when I checked earlier this year it was retailing at £700.

Stuff on the go is a Nikka from the barrel, Stagg Junior, Aberlour A’Bunadh. Finished a bottle of eagle rare not long ago so definitely need to pick up another.

Anyone have a whisky collection/thought about starting one?

I'm off the booze at the mo (3 and a half months dry so far) but I've invested in a fair few bottles.

I know there's a few Rum drinkers on here so i'd recommend a new one i bought yesterday Five Hundred Cuts Botanical Rum by Brewdog.
Nice flavours and smooth i've been drinking it with just a couple of ice cubes and got to say it's so good.

It’s nice (steady rather than anything wow), moderately smokey finish. I’d class it as an easy drinker.
Have you had 12? It's one of my dailies. Highland Park 12, Laphroaig 10, and Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban
Not sure tbh, doesn’t say anywhere on the bottle.

Liquor store next to a Walmart just down the road from where I’m staying!
Lucky duck. Pick up a bottle of old Forrester 1920 if you haven't already had it. It's superb.
Will have a look before I go home <ok>

I read that you can take 5 litres in your checked baggage <scratch>

That's a good price!

It's fairly hard to find here.
