Ten thoughts on booze

My name is Michael Taylor and I am not an alcoholic. I actually don't like pubs that much. On tour I fall asleep when I've reached my limit, I can't keep up with the likes of Andrew Page, Mike Perls and John Fowler. However, I do like a tipple and as I get older, I get more choosy. Here are my ten Friday thoughts for the week on the subject of booze.

Best white wine: Marlborough Montana Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand

Best red wine: A really dark creamy Merlot (Argentina)

Best bottled lager: Cains finest lager (proper stuff, gorgeous cold)

Best draught lager: Staropramen

Best bitter: Moorhouses Pendle Witch (from Burnley, I know, I know)

Best place to buy wine: Majestic (just gets better)

Best vodka: Absolut Citron (keep it in the freezer and serve neat over ice)

Best champagne: Veuve Clicquot

Best late night tipple: brandy warmed and in a big glass

Best stout: Guiness in Dublin, obvious but so true

At last - something we agree on!

Pubs seem like a distant memory since kids came along. They don't seem the same anymore and I don't like the way they have all become clones or try too hard.

Seems like a night in reading or catching up with the world in your blog with me coco is excitment now...

Slippers and a pipe next...
