    20171020_154429.jpg Im normally a whiskey man, today i was handed a bottle of Brandy.

    I was told to drink it neat.

    To say, i find it totally disgusting would be an understatement.

    Any recomendations?

    Well it depends on the brandy. If it's something like a Hennessy VSOP then you should definitely drink it straight.

    Mix it with Baileys Irish Cream & Ice.

    I'm sure there is something else I can think of too...

    Well, that wouldn't be a very high standard. Maybe you're better to mix it with Coke or something like that.

    I'm a whiskey drinker myself, but I drink it if anyone orphans a bottle of it at my house. Any port in the storm... Taking shots of it neat gets rid of it more quickly and with less pain.

    You could also use it to disinfect wounds or pour it over kindling so the fire starts more quickly.

    Looks like you need a few belts of it. You're getting your Irish up.

    Except for a bit of Emmets cream in my coffee very rarely, I never touch alcohol. I did my part.

    'Napoleon' just means it's extra old. Aged for at least 6 years. If it was a gift, I'd say it's likely very good stuff. Anyway you don't sound like a brandy connoisseur, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. But don't mix it. That would be sacrilege.

    Brandy stimulates your heart. It's a bit like red bull in a way, I wouldn't recommend you try to get drunk on it. Instead, treat it medicinally. Get yourself a hip flask. Then get yourself outdoors during the winter months, and fortify yourself with 'nips' from your flask, while walking in the country side, horse riding, shooting, day tripping in old open top vintage cars, watching local level football games, that sort of thing.

    Brandy is also yummy with ice cream.
