It’s Wednesday which means it’s time for another bear review – this time a little more in-depth than previous weeks. Today’s bear is the Kodiak – a truly majestic creature. Not to be confused with the more common brown bear – Kodiak bears are the second largest bear species (second only to polar bears) and only like on the Kodiak Archipelago islands off of Alaska.
If you recall I mentioned a story in my Seagram’s review about my first real experience with gin, and that Seagrams, Black Watch, and Gilbey’s were really – terrible gins, but because I had so much of them, I eventually broke through my general dislike of gin, and now fully appreciate a good gin spirit.
Another Silver tequila that I’ve picked up in lieu of a party (why my friend can’t handle other tequilas is beyond me). This one is a bit interesting because it’s a much more value price. It also is not sickengly sweet or downright awful – in fact the only real complaint about this is the Eurotrash look and feel.
La Merle Saison: 6.5 – Apparently this is named after a bird according to hipster bar person. Some citrus and fruity flavoring, and an overall tasty saison.
Google Shop Average: La Merle Saison $8
This vodka angers me, and if you want to know why it’s because this vodka is basically France making a lie. And there are two things I hate: liars, and light beer – which is water that’s lying about being beer. No I’m not saying that France can’t make a good vodka – hell with all the brandy and sacred water they go on about – it should work out fine.
