On a warm, sweaty evening last week, I had a Lagavulin 16, just because it was there. So I guess I really don't think that way. I tend to agree that I am less inclined to drink whisky at all in hot weather, but, judging from my intake the past few weeks, not that much less inclined.

But the ultimate choice would be a tall glass of Ricard with lots and lots of water and a touch of ice !!
Haven't seen a bottle of Ricard for ages??? is it still available in Scotland??

I'm intrigued...do elaborate.
If I may, if it's really hot out, pour measure or two of Laphroaig 10, some ice ( and maybe a bit of water) and some ( to taste) Rose's Lime Cordial but not too much, don't over power the whisky, just enough to add a little zing. It's very refreshing.

I've always thought of and enjoyed gin and tonic as a near perfect drink on a very hot summer day, patio, poolside.
Gin and Dubonnet strikes me as sweet and heavy, maybe cough-syrup would taste better kinda drink.

Ah, Sam Smith...marketed abroad as a high-priced prestige beer. It is by far the cheapest beer in Yorkshire, and justly so. Christian, you must make the jump across the North Sea and get yourself a proper pint of Timothy Taylor's Landlord!
On the tequila front, Don Eduardo for something light and flowery, Herradura Anejo or Chinaco for a full-bodied blast of agave.

Still, it's an alright porter - although one can find better ones out there. In general however, just think about how lucky beer drinkers are compared to wine drinkers? Have you ever seen a "high end beer/ale" go for silly prices like a Château Margaux?Christian, you must make the jump across the North Sea and get yourself a proper pint of Timothy Taylor's Landlord!
I'd love to but Copenhagen is up next I think. I'm very curious about the two ales you've spoken so well about Timothy Taylor's Landlord and Deuchars IPA. Do anyof you danish guys know if it's possible to get these in Denmark?
I see Murray McDavid is bottling rums from Antigua, Venezuela, Trinidad, and other locales. Has anyone had a chance to try them?
