The most amazing vintage I tasted was this divine Offley Boa Vista 1983... It's been two years and I can still remember the taste and the feeling of drinking perfection I got at this moment.

I drink alot of late bottled vintages, especially the traditional ones, like Noval, Warres, Smith Woodhouse, Quinta de La Rosa, and Niepoort. I like vintages the best, but they can get expensive. I drink tawnies occasionally, and especially like a good 20 year old tawny.

"Something I've heard about and want, but can't find is quince liquor."
Except for the occasional Ramos Gin Fizz and sake, I had no interest whatsoever in hard liquor or wine until absinthe came into my life, and I still don't. Absinthe is the ONLY liquor I drink or keep in the house. I recently had an absinthe with quince in it; now THAT was special.

i b puffer- which ports do you prefer, the cask aged (10, 20, 40 year) tawnys or bottle aged vintage or late bottled vintage?
i've also started getting into sherries too, not the cheap cooking swill but good amontillado or oloroso (from spain of course).
(bowing to the armagnac king, that's you ted!) armagnac is a new must drink to me , i prefer it over cognac any day , my cles de ducs (cheap) is hitting rock bottom.

I also like Amarula. It`s made frum a fruit greatly appreciated from...the elephants ! Apparently it have an effect on them and they eat it untill they colapse.
I don`t think it have any special effect on the human body. It`s just really tasty.

My drink of choice is Port. I drink it more often than absinthe.

Ooo, I forgot to mention a new one: Amarula. It's a South African cream liquer (usually I'm not big on liquers) made from the fruit of the Marula tree. The process is similar to wine-making and involves aging it for two years in oak barrels before adding the cream. It just became available in the US and I ordered it right away from my local store. It's so freakin' tasty! Absinthe is getting some serious competition around here...
