When I read that article (feb 11/12) I went straight to the websites of the items mentioned and chose them
to post for you....

The article itself seemed too far reaching for your thread - I wanted to be specific

All my posts are a result of reading the news a week ago..... that specific article

I'm happy you found it.....

The only way for you to come to that conclusion is not to have been reading the many posts on varying subjects in this thread.
It is not my thread.
I started it.
But it is for the enjoyment of all on DR1
Including you ‼️
I am glad you enjoy posting to my thread.
I value all useful information.
Trolls posting pictures and their useless comments are not valued by me.
But if they are valued by others then they are welcome to enjoy them.

Ok, so while others are trying to define what is posted to this thread...
I would like to add that I am looking for all information related to distilled spirits that you can actually buy in 🇩🇴 .
I hope that ends all confusion in this area.

Dewar's 12
A blended Scotch that is way better than their white label.
In fact the white label is so bad it took me almost two years of having it displayed before my guests polished it off.
But this Dewar's 12 that I am sipping on as I write is not bad.
I doubt that I will re-up on the bottle.
But I caught this one on sale for a price even a working man could afford.

OK - Bourbon and anything else......

Out for dinner last night........ friend's house

After dinner - the BSB came out...... and was enjoyed by all
I stuck with the rum...... the BSB smelled quite sweet- the women lapped it up !!

No idea where my friend bought it.

That is what I said.
Available to buy in 🇩🇴
That is my main interest.
You having problems with reading comprehension in English ❓

Glad you had a nice time out at your friends house.
It is what part of the good life covers.
Don't you have a thread for that❓
No idea where my friend bought it.
Well then it does not do me any good now...does it❓
And haven't you posted about BSB before❓
Just wondering :unsure:
If maybe my reading comprehension needs a little work also.

A pleasure always my man...

So I am mixing it up tonight and trying something new.
A classic: The Highball.
A base two ingredient cocktail.
1 whiskey to 2 soda or ginger ale.
Ginger ale is Polar Premium Ginger Ale
I'm sourcing my ingredients from what is available here in 🇩🇴.
Why❓
Cuz I live in EAST SIDE‼️

First up...
Chivas Regal 12
Man I bought this bottle so long ago I don't even have any other information on it in my files.
Never liked the stuff.
But I read that the taste of whiskey degridates after six months so I am trying to use my old stuff up.
Though I would try it in a classic mix.
Still does not work.
This a bottle I not going to re-up‼️
Chivas Regal 12750 ml

So, we got idiots posting other sections that the only thing you need to do to reach financial success in 🇩🇴
Is to not (expletive deleted) prostitutes and not buy Johnnie Walker.
The suggestion is to drink locally.:rolleyes:

Well my feeling if you are going to drink (it is not something that you need to do) you might as well drink something you like.
So, putting his suggestion to a field test (the drinking locally part)...
I broke out the King's Label (yellow label)
Kings label is a young scotch mixed bottled and aged here in 🇩🇴 by Bermudez.
This is not a sipping whisky.
But it mixes well.
The harshness of the juice punches through whatever you happen to be mixing it with.
It is much better (on my palate) than Chivas Regal 12
I enjoyed it.
And you cannot argue with the price if you are mixing up or serving it to unsophisticated whisky drinkers.
Kings Label 8 year700 ml410Ron Depot

Keeping it the mix...
Next up is:
Quarter Horse Kentucky Straight Bourbon
It is the best value whiskey buy in 🇩🇴 (in my opinion)
And of course it is Bourbon
Which for those that did not get the memo is my favorite type of whiskey of ALL TIME‼️
This is the mix that beat all mixes.
The one I could goto everyday after a hard day of doing nothing.
Plus it will not harm my financial progress.
And it is not local.
You as you see...my field knowledge of actually being on the ground...proves those posting from other places b throwing up some weak 💩

Staying in the mix from yesterday...
A classic: The Highball.
A base two ingredient cocktail.
1 whiskey to 2 soda or ginger ale.
Ginger ale: is Canada Dry Ginger Ale tonight
I'm sourcing my ingredients from what is available here in 🇩🇴.
Why❓
Cuz I live in EAST SIDE‼️
But I read a post from a pedantic person that informed me that I do not know where I live.
That I actually live in Santo Domingo este.
It is a separate municipality with it's own mayor.
It is amazing the things I learn from DR1.
Am I going to stop saying I live on EAST SIDE ❓
Nah...
:ROFLMAO:

I broke out the King's Label (Black label)
This King's Label is reported to be 12 years old.
Starting out as scotch.
Then mixed up, bottled and aged here in 🇩🇴 by Bermudez.
This is a sipping whisky.
And it mixes well.
And you simply cannot beat the price if it is truly a 12 year old product.
I can taste the refinement neat.
And I have served it to many a Dominican who has never had it before.
And they have all enjoyed it.
Such a shame when their are true local gems that are overlooked (IMO) because of lack or prestige.
Does not me from sipping it, serving it, and proudly displaying on my shelf.
I even give bottles away as gifts.
But this down as a solid number 2 on the Highball list
I will re up‼️

Wait, Wait
I do not need to.
I already got a back up bottle on my shelf.

Why❓
Cuz I live in EAST SIDE ‼️
Because if I can't buy it here 🇩🇴
Then I can't mix it here🇩🇴
And I can't drink it here🇩🇴
And my interest is in what I can do here in 🇩🇴

Now with that out of the way let us move onto Something Special Blended Scotch Whisky
"Something Special is a premium blended scotch whisky and is the no. 1 scotch whisky in the Dominican Republic..."


Well as a sipper it does not work for me.
But a interesting thing I have found with Scotch is that often if it does not work for me as a sipper it can work when used as a base in the right mix.
And this is where Something Special shines for me.
In the Highball it tastes great.
A clean, crisp taste that really sets itself apart in the mix.
I probably won't re up only to save shelf space as I already have two whiskeys that are working for me in the Highball already
But that is the only reason.
Given a bigger bar...I would re up.
And that not the only mix it works in.
Makes an excellent whiskey sour also.
And you cannot beat the price.

These are some great suggestions, but alas, my mixing days are over.

These days just give me a bottle of Chivas Royal Salute 21 yr. and a bottle of Glenfiddich 21 yr. to sip on every month or so and I'm a happy camper. :)

Those are both two exceptional bottles my man ‼️
No harm in swishing it around and watching the legs form and run down.
Taking in the nose, first in one nostril, then the other, then both.
Taking a sip and enjoying all the flavors as they develop on the pallete.
Neat or with some water.
It is the experience that we are all after now is it not❓
That is truly the good life.

All distilled liquors as I recall

Let me help you with your recall.
I do not know why (age, medication, excessive alcohol consumption) it seems to be faulty.
This is what I said:
Ok, so while others are trying to define what is posted to this thread...

Where is the the Totalwine store located in 🇩🇴 ❓

Jim Beam Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Jury is still out on my man Jim Beam
Not really working as a sipper or a mixer for me.
And the cost here in 🇩🇴 is straight highway robbery.
So, no re-up‼️

Dewar's Caribbean Smooth 10 YR Blended Scotch Whisky
If you are looking for a spicy mix this is the base you want to use.
It really pops in The Highball.
Every sip is bursting with flavor.
As a side note: it also makes a excellent Whiskey Sour
It is my goto base for both drinks.
