Which Ardbeg do you have? I got into Ardbeg after Lagavulin and Laphroaig and found it to be lackluster until I got near the end of my first bottle of Ten. Ten is hard to beat for the price in my book. Uigeadail and Corryvreckan have also turned out to be great bottles to me.
I take it back. The sour tamarind from the dried block is too sour and earthy. A waste of good tequila.Tequila, DIY tamarind syrup (this time made with sour tamarind from a dried block bought at an Indian grocery store, much more tart and I would say more flavorful that what I have made previously with full bean sweet tamarind), plus Topo Chico mineral water. Excellent.
There is a surprisingly large French ex-pat population here and this website caters to their demands, it has a very wide range of all things Gallic. As to the wines, we have a place in the Loire and so have been to Chinon, and to Cahors which is a fine old town, so I buy what I know. I love a crisp white but as I have got older my stomach finds them too acidic so I tend to roses now and am working my way around the globe, got stuck at Bordeaux. It could be worse.Interesting and seemingly authentic collection of French items, Rushman2112. I think it is fairly rare for me to see a Brouilly, a Cahors, or a Chinon in an area store. I am not sure I have ever seen a Bordeaux rose anywhere.
That must be really nice. We spent about a week in the Loire and it and the wines there were just lovely. Particularly the chenin blancs in all the different expressions, but I understand re the acidity. There is nothing wrong with French roses. Very food friendly and refreshing at the same time. I just had not seen rose Bordeaux.we have a place in the Loire
