Speaking of foodstuffs, had anyone ever had Vegemite?

A roommate I had in Boston had a gravity bong filled with dill pickle juice...I think he used Manischewitz.  The juice was full of peppercorns and chunks of garlic, so it was a total deli experience if the smoke was good.

Don't get me wrong, I've been known to take a few sips of pickle juice when the jar is empty before throwing it out :-[

But using it as a chaser?  Wouldn't the acid just cause it to burn?

Yep, it's an acquired taste (Marmite is the Kiwi version) use as a light spread on toast.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!   Time for a pickleback.

A glass of Power's Irish Whiskey, with a pickle juice chaser.  I'm going for Mount Olive Kosher Dill juice. 

Sublime!

that doesnt sound bad

on your rye whiskey front, you can taste this at Chat's on Capitol Hill on saturday from 3-6

High West Rendezvous Rye (Park City, Utah) $45.99
With an unusual make-up of old and young whiskies and very high rye content, Rendezvous Rye has an incredible flavor profile that earned it Malt Advocates "Top 10 Whiskey of 2008" and what John Hansell, Malt Advocate Editor, calls "Great Price, compared to other premium rye whiskies."

Dangit, for some reason I had you on ignore.  I don't know how people keep ending up on my ignore list.

Also, I'm being ignored by one member.  I wonder if it is accidental or if I pissed someone off.  I feel that I'm finally a full fledged member of WNFF now that someone is ignoring me :lol:

Wow, that sounds neat.  There seem to be a few "western" ryes around, invoking the cowboy/western boomtown days.  In order to be called a rye whiskey, it has to be at least 51% rye in origin.  The Wild Turkey I had was 65%, and the Rendezvous is "blended from two exotic straight rye whiskies (a 6-year-old that is 95% rye and a 16-year-old that is 80% rye)".

Okay, add it to my list of "gotta try".  Anyone that likes whiskey owe it to themselves to try some of these ryes that are the foundation of the art in the US.

Love it. Slight preference for Marmite if both are available.  Nothing better for breakfast.

Dont feel like searching, but I remember Rye whiskey being brought up as somewhat of a rarity or lost art (i think).

Star and Shamrock just opened up on H St NE and they have 9 rye whiskey's if anybody needs a fix.

Amen.

I don't trust getting one out, though.  I now keep a bottle of Wild Turkey 101 Rye in my own cabinet.  Love the lively and aggressive pepper, leather/tobacco flavors.

last night after work I had a Rum and Coke that blew my mind.

Cruzan, half coconut rum, half pineapple rum. fill with coke.

was sooooooooooooo good.

but then again, I love Rum anyway.

I wanna try Half Coconut, Half Vanilla, but the bar I work at does not carry any Vanilla Rum for some reason.

Try it with a little cranberry juice and a hint of vodka instead of coke or peach schnapps instead of the vodka. I forgot what they're called abut I knew this chick that used to make those and one or two of those are tolerable (if you're into sweet drinks). At some point sweet drinks, at least for me, become nauseous.

i had a drink last week called a "John Daly" up in Legal Seafood in Boston, it was equal parts of "Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka" and lemonade.  It tasted just like an Arnold Palmer, the bartender warned me that the drink is a lot stronger than it tastes.

Has anyone seen sweet tea vodka at a Virginia ABC?

BTW, should I feel bad that they named a drink after a guy with a drinking problem?

I'll say it again: Highland Park 15yr FTMFW. It's the smoothest whiskey ever. It tastes good, not too sweet, not too much burn, no aftertaste. People called it the best whiskey in the world, I'm not complaining. It was 60 something fro the bottle, totally completely worth it.
