    Mickey's! Now that brings back memories.

    Last time I had one of those, I could still get Old Peculier in big mouth bottles.

    Rebel Redux.

    If I couldn't afford Lagavulin and Laphroaig, I think I'd be perfectly happy with Captain Morgan Black and Rebel Reserve (or even regular Rebel Yell).

    Captain Morgan Black.

    My niece and several other young folks (including one who was working the rum aisle at Spec's) have told me that Kraken is the shizzle for spiced rum. Way better than the Cap'n, they told me. So I bought a bottle and tried it.

    The young are at the forefront of every revolution because they are easily deceived and easily led astray foolish trends. Never trust anyone under thirty (probably forty). At least not where booze is concerned, or anything else of consequence.

    So I take it you didn't care for the Kraken? I've heard good things about it, by folks I'd generally trust, so that would be surprising for me to hear. I'm not a huge spiced rum fan, so I haven't tried it yet myself. Pyrat rum is pretty good stuff though in my experience, but again, not spiced.

    Kraken is a fine spiced rum; it's just not better than Captain Morgan Black, as all the young folks told me. Or as good, IMO. I'm not saying Kraken is bad; just not quite as good.

    I agree that Pyrat is very good. A shelf above the Captain Morgan and Kraken. Two shelves above here (but in this pic, only the top shelf really counts):

    Whisky 'helps fight cancer'


    By Auslan Cramb 12:01AM BST 09 May 2005

    Drinking malt whisky may help prevent cancer, a scientific conference has been told.

    The medicinal properties of antioxidants in red wine are well known, but delegates at a biochemistry conference were told that whisky offered "even greater health benefits".

    Dr Jim Swan, a consultant to the drinks industry, said: "There has been much in the news about the health benefits of antioxidants in red wine. By contrast, very little has been said about malt whisky distillery science.

    "However, research has shown that there are even greater health benefits to people who drink single malt whiskies. Why? Single malt whiskies have more ellagic acid than red wine."

    Speaking at the EuroMedLab conference in Glasgow, he said ellagic acid absorbed rogue cells in the body. "So, whether you indulge in the odd tipple, or you are a serious connoisseur, whisky can protect you from cancer and science proves it," he said.

    However, Dr Lesley Walker of Cancer Research UK, pointed out that the same acid was found in fruit, and said she was "very concerned" that whisky was being promoted as a cancer prevention agent without data to support the claim.

    "On the contrary, there is considerable data documenting the link between drinking excess alcohol and the increased risk of a number of cancers, particularly in smokers," she said.

    "Ellagic acid is a powerful antioxidant but that does not mean it is necessary to hit the bottle.

    "There is an abundance of this acid in soft fruits and the charity suggests this as a much healthier way of increasing antioxidant intake."

    Stopped by Anna Bell's Cafe and picked up some Luksusowa potato vodka and must say it's quite good and priced right.

    This again, but with Boodles Gin, because Monkey 47 is too expensive and comes in little half-bottles that I'm out of.

    It's the second happiest drink in the world, after sake.

    Boodles Gin is and entirely acceptable substitute.

    Now with Hendrick's Gin, because the Boodles is all gone. It's all good.
