21 years ago

21 years ago some fine person started aging this rum for me. I think that was very thoughtful of them

So as not to offend I drank some
Also, it was delicious
Merry Christmas

Who drinks espresso?

I’ve been a coffee lover for 20 years now. In my quest for a personal vice I’ve become an espresso lover.
While visiting a Starbucks [conveniently tucked inside a Chapters bookstore] I noticed someone else indulging in his espresso habit.
Look closely.


Holy hot espresso Batman …


It’s Batman

This is not photo-shopped – the coffee cupping caped crusader apparently loves his latte!

Wine Rating Controversy

There is quite the controversy brewing over how professionals rate the wine that they drink?  The National Post recently published an article entitled “Vintage snobbery: Are wine critics fooling us into buying pricier bottles?

Which brings me to my own wine rating systems which reduce wine snobbery and elitism to a minimum.

  1.  “Mmm, yum” get used most often in my house closely followed by the
  2. “do we have another bottle of this?” method.
  3. I have also endorsed the coliseum method – Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down
  4. And finally I have sadly used the “Plonk” rating for wines that deserve a quick death

Any rating system more complicated than these are really superfluous aren’t they?
