    You need something to carry your booze, I mean books.      Well it’s that time of year again that most of us dread.  No I’m not taking about trying to figure out who gave you that rash or if it is actually just a rash.  No, I’m talking about back to school time.  I don’t have kids nor do I have to deal with the daily expenses of having to pay for books, classes, and such but back when I was in school I do remember it being very pricey.  I also remember that nothing is harder than having to choose between the importances of a Physic’s book compared to that of a bottle of sweet, sweet booze.  So I’m here to give you the resource I never had.  I got a list of inexpensive liquors that doesn’t taste like the green stuff growing on the floor inside your dorm room closet (No not that stuff, the other stuff. You know the stuff that’s growing on your socks). 

        I went to my local place of spirit sales and gathered some prices and a bottle or 6 to see what choices would be good in exchange for that book in your Organic Gardening class.  You will notice that on the list there are some liquors missing such as Scotch.  That’s because the base starting price for a Scotch that I consider to be drinkable start around the $35 - $40 range.  When you are on a budget you have to go without some things.  Unfortunately that means you will have to do without a few types of liquor.  Life is hard, sorry.  Now on to the list!

Vodka:

Svedka         Overall - 7.0     7.0 shots

                            - $13.00 for a 750 ml bottle

                            - $19.00 for a 1.75 ml bottle*

Smirnoff        (Soon to be rated)                           

                             - $12.00 for a 750 ml bottle

                            - $18.00 for a 1.75 ml bottle

 UV                  (Soon to be rated)

                            - $13.00 for a 750 ml bottle

Rum:

Bacardi ( Flavored)   Overall - 6.0 (average)    6.0 shots

                                        - $15.00 for a 750 ml bottle

Bacardi ( Gold & Silver)      (Soon to be rated)

                                         - $13.50 for a 750 ml bottle

Flor de Cana Gold   Overall - 8.0   8.0 shots

                                        - $13.50 for a 750 ml bottle*

Captain Morgan        (Soon to be rated)

                                         -$12.00 for a 750 ml bottle*

                                         -$25.00 for a 1.75 ml bottle

Sailor Jerry’s Rum     Overall - 8.5     8.5 shots

                                           - 20.00 for a 750 ml bottle *

                                           - 26.00 for a 1.75 ml bottle ( sale price)*

Tequlia:

Jose Cuervo Especial    Overall - 5.5   5.5 shots

                                               - $16.00 for a 750 ml bottle*

                                               - $30.50 for a 1.75 ml bottle

What a Winner looks like!Whiskey:

Jim Beam (white)    Overall - 6.5     6.5 shots

                    -$17.00 for a 750 ml bottle*

                    -$25.00 for a 1.75 ml bottle

Gin:

Seagram’s                 (Soon to be rated)

                              -12.47 for 750ml bottle

Grain:

Everclear             Overall - 5.0   5 shots

                                   -13.50 for a 750 ml bottle*

Fad booze:

Jagermeister   Overall - 6.5  6.5 shots

                               - 23.00 for a 750ml bottle

* must for every low price dorm bar

    
          Remember this list is purely a bang for the buck list.   What I suggest is getting one bottle of something you really love and then filling in the blanks with liquors from my little list.  These liquors were what I thought to be the bargains at MY local spirit store.  I know different places have different laws so prices may be different, hell you may not be able to buy a few of the bottles in your area.  I don’t know the sales and laws everywhere in the world.  So leave a comment and help out the other drinkers in your area.  Remember we are a drinking community, so we have to stick together and assist our fellow brothers of the shot glass.  Now as for finding someone to help some of you buy liquor, I suggest talking to that weird older girl that sits in the front of the class.  She has no friends and nothing but time on her hands.  Sure you might have to invite her to your next party, but that’s a low price to pay for an open booze connection.  Good Luck and Happy Drinking!

Flor de Caña 18    Greetings, loyal readers.  It has been many moons since I have imparted a review to our great little website, but I certainly haven’t been slacking on my tasting and exploring the liquor world during this time of women, binging, and assorted acts of debauchery.  One of the latest libations to reach my parched lips comes from our good friends at Flor de Caña in their Centenario Gold 18-year rum.  Since most Flor de Caña products we have tasted have fared very well in our tests (especially the Gold 4-year), we were quite excited to try a more age-refined offering. 
  
    Unlike many party rums such as Bacardi Limon or Flor de Caña Gold, I have not allowed the Flor de Caña Centenario Gold 18 to escort me to any parties or gatherings in fear that it may be consumed in mass quantities by people who lack discerning palates and cannot appreciate its delicious depth of flavor.  It would be a shame to waste such yummy booze on 20-somethings who would muck up my Centenario Gold with soda for their sloppy, drunken pleasure.  Centenario Gold is a true sipping rum and should be enjoyed as such.

    When taking that first sip of Centenario over ice, your tastebuds are greeted with a thick and smooth treat.  The trademarked slow-aging process Flor de Caña uses for its rums is fully realized with Centenario Gold.  The 18 years of aging in small oak barrels gives Centenario Gold a deep amber color and a complex yet smooth flavor.  Flor de Caña claims this rum is hand crafted and allowed to age at its own pace.  I’m not exaclty sure what that means, but whatever they are doing to this spirit before sending it my way definitely gets a BoozeBasher stamp of approval.  This rum goes down very smoothly, and you can really feel the almost thick texture of the spirit as it makes its way down your throat.  You can taste a large amount of oakiness paired with the rich sweetness of sugar cane from Flor de Caña’s San Antonio Sugar Mill in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua.  The flavors pair nicely and give the spirit a caramel-like taste.  The finish is dry, almost like a Scotch, but the caramel-like aftertaste really stays on your tongue and keeps you thirsty for more.  There is absolutely no metalic taste or alcohol burn that you may associate with a cheap, unrefined rum.  Flor de Caña really hit one out of the park with Centenario Gold 18.

    Since I have stated that rum of this calibur should be enjoyed without a mixer, you might think that Centenario Gold doesn’t mix well with cola.  Well, you would be wrong!  I swear the taste that comes from Flor de Caña Centenario Gold and Coke is a taste of heaven.  The rum mixes so well with Coke that it accentuates it perfectly.  It gives the cola a little boost in thickness and a wonderfully-delicious aftertaste that leaves a hint of sugarcane and caramel on the tongue.  The finish isn’t as dry as before, and you could easily keep these drinks coming all night.  Although I personally see it as a grave sin to mix this rum, I have to admit that it tastes even better with a splash of soda.  If you do decide to bring Centenario Gold to a party full of young people, they will love the drinks you make them, even if they really don’t understand the true beauty of the spirit they imbibe.

    The drunk produced from Centenario Gold was an intense yet mellow buzz.  I lost all care and worry, and I was in fantastically-good spirits for the night.  I felt immune to all the nasty things happening in my life and around me in my home, and let’s be honest here, that’s what drinking is all about, right?  I’m not so sure this would be the best juice in the world to start off a long night of debauchery, as it mellowed me and evened away any stress and excitement both, but I would highly reccommed it for a relaxing evening at home or as a finisher when coming home from a long night of excitement.  As a matter of fact, I would even go so far as to call Flor de Caña Centenario Gold the PERFECT drink for a nightcap.  I never thought I would use that term, but there it is, and Centenario Gold fits that bill exactly.

    Though I admittedly didn’t have much more than four shots worth of Centenario Gold to test the hangover, the lack of any kind of discomfort in the morning was very welcome.  There was no hangover or dry mouth.  I was a little groggy and tired the next day, but it’s hard to tell if the rum was actually the culprit there since I didn’t get much sleep.  Still, Centenario will make a nifty mid-week treat for all you hard-working types out there.  The punishment the next day shouldn’t be anything you can’t power through.  

    Most rum drinkers begin their journey into the rum world with the likes of Bacardi Silver or other sub-par spirits.  We here at BoozeBasher are here to save you from that medocrity of the masses and promote the less-advertised and perhaps less-known yet superior spirits.  Flor de Caña is definitely a less-known brand that you should check out, and the Centenario Gold 18 is the most delicious of any product of theirs that I have consumed (though I have yet to try the Centenario 21).  Even though the Centenario Gold will hurt you in the wallet at nearly $40 a bottle, do yourself a favor, and give it a try.  If it isn’t good enough to make you slap your momma, it will certainly at least bring a big smile to your face after a hard day.  Cheers.

     WARNING!!! Milagro Reposado will give you a  I can’t drink tequila anymore because of last time” story.   After two parties where I have involved Milagro Reposado, there have been lap dances, nudity, throwing up, blackouts in random places, and unplanned hook ups which lead to more nudity.  Right about now I know you are looking for your keys so you can run out and buy a case of this stuff, but first stick around for the review.  If you are good, I might even post pictures of the parties (not likely).    

     Milagro Reposado is made from 100% estate-grown, hand-picked blue agave harvested from the highlands of Jalisco.  The heart of the blue agave is roasted in clay ovens made from the same volcanic-rich soil where the blue agave flourishes in Jalisco, Mexico.  The triple distillation process produces tequila with depth and character for a really smooth flavor.  Milagro Reposado is aged in oak barrels for six months in small, handmade batches for a mellowed taste and a pleasing bouquet.  Basically, all this hard work makes an 80-proof party in a bottle.

      The taste of Milagro isn’t the regular tequila flavor we all know and love/hate.  It has a light agave tequila flavor.  Its not rough and abusive like most other tequilas.  There is still that serious tequila burn that stings everything that it touches, but with tequila, this is just part of the story.  Personally, I can drink it by itself over ice.  Let me note, out of all the people that we have drunk with only the hardcore drinkers (Hunter and I) were able to handle it this way.  All the women with us have found the taste to be too overwhelming.  Also, it mave prove to be a bit much as well for all you guys who don’t have the conditioning from many nights of binge drinking.  A funny thing about the Milagro Reposado is that somewhere around the second or third shot, you stop caring about the taste…or much of anything.

     Now when mixed, you may find Milagro Reposado to be easier to handle, but I noticed that it still has the same problem that most tequilas have.  No matter how much you mix it, you still have that agave aftertaste.  There’s nothing you can do.  If tequila is involved, you are going to know it.  With that said, in a tequila Sunrise (tequila plus orange juice, topped with cherry grenadine)it’s AMAZING.  The tequila sunrises with Milagro Reposado held off all thoughts of slowing down the boozing.  Well, until the Milagro ran out anyway.

      With a tequila this smooth, it was easy for me to down a random high number of shots of it.  Sadly, after so many of Milagro’s 80-proof shots, I wasn’t drunk.  Now don’t forget I’m a real drunk, so just because I wasn’t on my ass doesn’t mean you won’t be.  Although I wasn’t drunk, I will admit I lost all of my inhibitions, and so did everyone else that consumed too much of this nectar.  It’s like Milagro taps into your subconscious mind and tells you to do things, bad things, and even worse things.  After about three ounces, you can actually feel yourself loosen up.  I wouldn’t call the feeling being drunk, it’s more like taking the stick out of your ass and starting to enjoy things around you.  I don’t think I would call that feeling ”drunk,” maybe just happy.  Plus, a great perk to Milagro is that girls grow more “affectionate,” and we’ll leave it at that.

     For me, there was no hangover the next day.  I felt fine.  I was groggy, but I think that was from lack of sleep.  The only thing that hurt in the morning was my wallet. Milagro Reposado isn’t cheap.  This 80-proof party enhancer rings up for around $46 for a 750ml bottle.  Is it worth it?  Yes!  It just goes fast…too fast.    

     Milagro Reposado is good tequila to make for a fun time and a lot of secrets.  If you have the money, you should definitely try it.  It hasn’t failed me yet.  And as long as you have the knowledge of how to make a good tequila mixed drink, it won’t fail you either.  I will warn you though, if you are planning on having a tequila party with Milagro Reposado, make sure there aren’t any cameras around because things happen that you don’t always want to have proof of…and some things happen that you do.  Just make sure to have a designated spot for clothing.  Nothing is worse than trying to find your pants or a sock in a crowed room filled with naked people.

     WARNING!!! Milagro Reposado will give you a  I can’t drink tequila anymore because of last time” story.   After two parties where I have involved Milagro Reposado, there have been lap dances, nudity, throwing up, blackouts in random places, and unplanned hook ups which lead to more nudity.  Right about now I know you are looking for your keys so you can run out and buy a case of this stuff, but first stick around for the review.  If you are good, I might even post pictures of the parties (not likely).    

     Milagro Reposado is made from 100% estate-grown, hand-picked blue agave harvested from the highlands of Jalisco.  The heart of the blue agave is roasted in clay ovens made from the same volcanic-rich soil where the blue agave flourishes in Jalisco, Mexico.  The triple distillation process produces tequila with depth and character for a really smooth flavor.  Milagro Reposado is aged in oak barrels for six months in small, handmade batches for a mellowed taste and a pleasing bouquet.  Basically, all this hard work makes an 80-proof party in a bottle.

      The taste of Milagro isn’t the regular tequila flavor we all know and love/hate.  It has a light agave tequila flavor.  Its not rough and abusive like most other tequilas.  There is still that serious tequila burn that stings everything that it touches, but with tequila, this is just part of the story.  Personally, I can drink it by itself over ice.  Let me note, out of all the people that we have drunk with only the hardcore drinkers (Hunter and I) were able to handle it this way.  All the women with us have found the taste to be too overwhelming.  Also, it mave prove to be a bit much as well for all you guys who don’t have the conditioning from many nights of binge drinking.  A funny thing about the Milagro Reposado is that somewhere around the second or third shot, you stop caring about the taste…or much of anything.

     Now when mixed, you may find Milagro Reposado to be easier to handle, but I noticed that it still has the same problem that most tequilas have.  No matter how much you mix it, you still have that agave aftertaste.  There’s nothing you can do.  If tequila is involved, you are going to know it.  With that said, in a tequila Sunrise (tequila plus orange juice, topped with cherry grenadine)it’s AMAZING.  The tequila sunrises with Milagro Reposado held off all thoughts of slowing down the boozing.  Well, until the Milagro ran out anyway.

      With a tequila this smooth, it was easy for me to down a random high number of shots of it.  Sadly, after so many of Milagro’s 80-proof shots, I wasn’t drunk.  Now don’t forget I’m a real drunk, so just because I wasn’t on my ass doesn’t mean you won’t be.  Although I wasn’t drunk, I will admit I lost all of my inhibitions, and so did everyone else that consumed too much of this nectar.  It’s like Milagro taps into your subconscious mind and tells you to do things, bad things, and even worse things.  After about three ounces, you can actually feel yourself loosen up.  I wouldn’t call the feeling being drunk, it’s more like taking the stick out of your ass and starting to enjoy things around you.  I don’t think I would call that feeling ”drunk,” maybe just happy.  Plus, a great perk to Milagro is that girls grow more “affectionate,” and we’ll leave it at that.

     For me, there was no hangover the next day.  I felt fine.  I was groggy, but I think that was from lack of sleep.  The only thing that hurt in the morning was my wallet. Milagro Reposado isn’t cheap.  This 80-proof party enhancer rings up for around $46 for a 750ml bottle.  Is it worth it?  Yes!  It just goes fast…too fast.
