    The lemon is part of the ingredients of the gin, which is also made in Italy. Quite nice overall - but it lacked the usual kick you get from gin.

    Rum, ginger beer and lime.

    Don't bet on there being much Rioja around in a few years time. Yesterday morning's late frost couldn't have come at a worse moment:[​IMG]
    Early indications indicate loss of at least half the production in the Rioja Alta (and in Navarra).

    Everybody is walking around my town looking as devastated as the vineyards, especially the independent grape growers and the winemakers who sell their entire production as young wine. The big companies will manage by upping the prices of their considerable stocks of earlier vintages.

    Aldi "Terasses du Larzac" tenner a bottle and yummy in a way their Chateauneuf du Pape wasn't ...
    Seriously jammy - licorice and blackcurrant with a bit of apricot acidity - these characteristics slightly overwhelm the tannins, but it's only been open a couple of days. More than a match for falafels and hummus. :)

    I signed up for an introductory offer to a beer box meaning to cancel it and didnt. :facepalm:

    Still worse things to come home to then 12 really interesting beers you can't get in the supermarkets even if they are expensive. Fortunately all the ones in this box look OK, the coffee stout in the introduction one was definitely a bit out there for me.

    Also got these to took look forward to in a few weeks.

    Bottled coors light and Oxford landing sauvignion blanc. Deciding which to have and stick with it. Or do what I normally do and have a mix and match. Resulting in a very pretty sight next morning and feeling very second hand. :facepalm:

    Does sound awfully refreshing though, an olive would top that off beautifully :D

    Had this in Germany the other night - 7.3% and in a 750ml bottle. Sadly the volume/gassiness defeated me eventually. After 3.4 bottles. :hmm:

    I ran out of recent purchases so have opened a bottle of the 2009 I "laid down".
    Very smooth - though I can't detect those individual fruits ...

    Day 5 - I drank the last of the bottle today and it was cranberries. :)
