Experimental shots* night!
First up: Pitu.
Smells like rum, kind of. Or sake. Hold please. Yes, this is definately sake-esque. This isn't pouring so well.
Is there an inner cap or something here? Beans, help me out! What's the dilly? Ok, there it goes. That was odd. Nowthen, on to business. Hm, not bad. Still vaguely sake-esque. Let's go to the replay. This bottle is starting to cheese me off. Still reminicent of sake...average sake, not a ginjyoshu. 'Drier', I think. Yeah, I can see using this for stuff. I'll go to the store tomorrow for caiphirinha components (Limes, and maybe some other sort of fruit).
Next contestant: Yukon Jack
I was after Pimms, having been made curious by the thread of the same name, but my boozeria was out, so I got Yukon Jack, since I've been wondering about that, too. Ah, Stamford, CT**...is there anything that isn't imported into you? The answer, of course, is 'yes', but still. Why does your mall have four (Yes, four, though it might be three. More than one, anyway) Abercrombies? Oh well. Thanks for all the fine drinkables. Smells like a sweet novelty cereal, but I can't place it. Was there ever a cereal called "Honey Burning Oat Rings"? That would be what Yukon Jack smells like. *cough* ...smooth. (Could that someone perhaps, perchance be Mack the Knife??). Not bad. There's no question that this is a 100 proof liqueur, and it has a sweet kick to it. Why do all the recipes on Webtender using this stuff seem incredibly strong? Just because it has 'Jack' in the name doesn't automatically mean you have to mix it with Jack Daniel's.
Alright, that's it for now. I need to clean and completely reassemble my (Hopefullly not dead...) dev laptop.
* This has context from another thread
! Not just like...doing shots for no reason!
** I'm origonally from the next big town over.
