    Apologies, I’m a brandy drinker 😉

    Can’t say I’ve ever tried Oude Meester, this seems a good choice then.

    I’d love to try Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky, the description sounds amazing – Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky is distilled and double matured at The James Sedgwick Distillery which is situated near the foothills of the Bainskloof Pass in Wellington. The Cape Mountains rearing their heads of 850 million year old sandstone are covered by many indigenous fynbos species and this is the canvas against which South Africa’s first Single Grain whisky is created. http://www.takealot.com/bain-s-cape-mountain-whisky-750ml/PLID40687684

    Oooh – that’s very nice to know indeed. Will make gift buying a whole lot easier.
    For myself, though – would love to try a nice bottle of Patron Anejo (http://www.takealot.com/patron-anejo-tequila-750ml/PLID40724474). Feel like that would be the start (or end!) of a very good evening indeed!

    Jeepers, you really expect me to only try one? Given my Scottish heritage, I have a tendency to lean towards Whiskey:

    – This Bottle looks pretty cool & judging by the price tag it should taste pretty damn cool too – http://www.takealot.com/royal-salute-21-year-old-scotch-whiskey-750ml/PLID40687487

    – Always loved Jameson, so this has got to be given a try at some stage – http://www.takealot.com/jameson-rarest-vintage-reserve-750ml/PLID40687419

    But seriously now, I can’t afford either of those two! 😉 So if I had to choose what I would buy with the R1000 voucher, it would be this – http://www.takealot.com/jameson-rarest-vintage-reserve-750ml/PLID40687419 Simply because I can’t actually pronounce the name (correctly at least) & I can just imagine myself sharing this with a couple of friends going “Would ye like another wee drab of ‘Brugladarimach’, there Laddie?!” in an if-I-do-say-so-myself superb Scottish accent!

    And if I was indulging my inner party animal, it would have to be one of these bad boys:
    http://www.takealot.com/belvedere-citrus-vodka-750ml/PLID40724460
    http://www.takealot.com/patron-xo-cafe-dark-cocoa-tequila-750ml/PLID40724480
    Got a monthly poker game and would be awesome to bust these puppies out for the infamous straf-dops! (a game has rules and when rules are broken, people get ‘punished’!)

    Decisions, decisions….

    Long story, but Rum became my drink of choice quite a few years ago.
    I sailed to the Caribbean and tried all the rums I could find there (no red-heart there).
    I judged Mount Gay to be the best rum in the world, but not easily obtainable here.
    I tried Mount Gay black barrel rum last year – Nice but expensive.
    Now to try XO.
