    Brother,
    I dunno also. I wonder why vodka is famous yet not too expensive and many europeans love them so much. It's not really a high-class poison like brandy and yet so popular. I usually drink Gin then 1 day I pop a shoot and instantly love it. I seldom drink but I never forget vodka, I always like to have a bottle in the kitchen but seeing it itself make me drool and I finish 1 bottle very fast until I have to control before I go broke. I am not a alcoholic and infact I only casual drink maybe few times a year but vodka is ...

    Unlike other poison, it's not dominating yet powerful like taquila. Taste plain at first and fragrance slowly. Shiok!

    fine as in having a little sip once every hour? :P for keeping warm.
    only tried once...the feeling is s#$t...ha. the taiwanese kao liang has a similar effect. :P

    personally, i'm a vodka drinker. only smirnoff. and only neat in the shooter.

    Hmm try Barcardi 151. I hated Gin, had it for house parties 3 weekends straight and could never stand taking it ever again.

    used to drink anything and everything offer to me. When I say everything, I really mean it. The type of "poison" that I have tried before includes tequlia, whiskey, brandy, rum, creamish liquer, vodka, wine and even chinese liquer like Gao Liang (tried it during army exercise in Taiwan ... used to keep body warm on the cold 10-15 degree raining nights)

    But now stick mainly to wine ... Ice Wine ... Inniskillin Ice Wine.

    For those who dunno what is Ice Wine, here is a good link on Ice Wine.
    http://wine.about.com/library/types/bl_icewine.htm

    Ice Wine is really quality stuff, but the taste is more on the sweet side so it may not attract most hardcore drinkers. The downside is the price is high as only 3 countries (Canada, Genmary and Austria) in the world produces it and it only harvest in Winter and gain is low due to the frozen grapes.

    Usually, I will buy a bottle or 2 (Ice Wine normally sold in 1/2 bottles so buying 2 still within duty free limit) at Changi Airport on my way back from other country. I dun even try to buy at other places in S'pore, the price is too ex. (The 35cl Red Inniskillin Ice Wine that I bought at Airport for 200+ cost almost 500+ in other places!) So far I only haven't tried the Ice Wine Champange. (or what they called Sparkling Ice Wine)

    Any1 shared my passion on Ice Wines?

    Pink Dolphin.

    ..no really I think I am allergic to it. I drank it twice and both times it gave me explosive diarrhea.

    On the topic of Alcoholic Poisons I dont have any preferences, any thing that I can swallow without throwing up is good. Which brings me to the topic of NTUC's wines. Are they cooking wines or normal drinking wines? I tried one of the their wines once and it was more vinegar than wine.

    Typically I go for Wines (more of Red Wine) and Japanese Sake.

    But I only drink when its available. Not crave for it.

    BTW, there's this particular alcohol that's brown in colour, looks quite thick and smells like chocolate milk but its like a 100 pound poof over red wine or Sake.

    What's that one called?
