Not always Brandy

Written by feltedhat on . Posted in other

It doesn’t have to be Brandy all the time, does it? There are many other drinks out there that can be enjoyed. So here you see some of my newest spirits.


First of all the Vodka. Crystal Head from Canada. Already had one or two shots and this is excellent stuff. But that was already clear when I saw that this is Dan Aykroyd’s new line of Vodka. ๐Ÿ™‚ In all seriousness my first impression is that this Vodka is not in need of this fancy bottle. Even though I have to admit the bottle is a big part of why I got it as I think it fits the feltedhat logo very well and I am planing to use it as a decanter for Brandy later on. ๐Ÿ™‚


Here we see a miniature bottle of Kah tequila. This is the Reposado and apart from that you can find the Kah blanco that comes in a white bottle and the Kah Anejo in a black bottle. They all come in those cool skull shaped bottles with a unique design. Kah has won the San Francisco World Spirit Double Gold Award in 2012 so I have high expectations. ๐Ÿ™‚

Last but not least there is Absinth. Something I wanted to try in a long time! Not many alcohols come wrapped in so much saga and legends. And today everyone is assuring you that Absinthe is absolutely safe if you drink it with consideration as any other alcohol. Since I like schnapps made with herbs or anise and I do like a nice glass of Pernod in summer I think Absinth would be something that really could be down my alley. We will seeโ€ฆ

Summer break

Takinging a break from posting to enjoy summer, cigars and Brandy offline. Sometimes it is just nice to smoke and enjoy without writing about it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy your summer and see you in a few weeks!


Colorful knee-highs

Written by feltedhat on . Posted in other

What is it you are sticking your feet in every day? Yesterday a package arrived containing the socks I ordered to replace the worn out ones. Everybody has to do that from time to time and I was all over the place buying different brands and makes but about two years from today I have found what I was looking for.


A family run business in France that creates a wide variety of colorful knee-highs in good quality and for a very affordable price:


The socks itself are not only fantastic to wear if not they come in style too. Just look at how they are wrapped in silk paper with a little seal bearing the companies logo. And best of all they have warning labels as well, just like the cigars we all like so much! And on the contrary to the tobacco labels these actually make very much sense!!! ๐Ÿ™‚


And most certainly let me assure you that life is too precious for only black and brown!
