I prefer wine (Bordeaux, and similar; cabernets and merlots) to distilled
spirits, although I like port and, having spent a couple of years in PR,
rum (Don Q), too. The best Guinness I ever had was in the back room of
the Eagle and Child (aka Bird and Baby) in Oxford, where the Inklings used
to meet, but that had as much to do with the emotions as with the palate.
For firewater, Armagnac can't be beat. Benedictine will do for dessert.
