They used to have samples. :mad: Thanks to COVID, they no longer give out samples of liquor at Dorignac's. There used to be an old guy giving out samples of whiskey and an old lady giving out samples of vodka, gin, etc. every weekend.

Although, I think they are starting to do it again. But, all I have seen so far is like flavored vodka. Blech. They really need to bring back the whiskey samples and Make Dorignac's Great Again.
Doesn't alcohol kill germs?

When I was there 2 weeks ago, they were sampling coffee-flavored Jameson (which was gross) and some sort of satsuma rum (which wasn't too bad).

I'm going camping in March and I think this is the bottle I'm going to bring with me.
i haven't been camping since 1995 (15 years old). my friends, and i, would go just to drink the beer (vb aka victoria bitter 4 lyfe) and tequila we way overpaid for someone to buy it for us. well, until i received my learner's permit. at the time in vic, australia, they issued paper permits via typewriter. a little scratchy scratch here and there, voila! i was instantly 18, yet looked like i was 12.

Yep. And it specifically kills COVID. It's an outrage that must not be allowed to stand. I mean, I have a medical condition that requires me to get free whiskey samples on weekends.
Regular 80 proof is not recommended for killing Covid. You really need at least 120 proof.

The Bayou Satsuma Rum is my Mom's favorite drink. I've had it a few times and it's pretty tasty

Hmmm. Maybe it's back. I've been going in the afternoon recently and I used to go in the morning. So maybe they do more in the morning.

Yeah, they generally have good prices. Although sometimes specific things will be too high. But, it's random and they usually have good sales. Their selection is really good for a grocery store too. They don't tend to have the really rare stuff but they have a lot of stuff you don't see most places. For instance, they carry whiskey from a Texas distillery called Balcones. I've only seen their stuff one other place (Acquistapace Liquor and Wine in Mandeville). They are doing some interesting stuff.
If you like interesting whiskey, Balcone Lineage is a good choice. It's a tasty single malt bottled at 94 proof. I see it on the shelves here all the time. I feel it's lost in the dozen other Balcone flavors sitting on the shelf.

Was moseying around Total Wine and saw this. They have a ton of minis and luckily had this so I didn't have to invest the whole 20 bucks. I've been on a flavor kick lately and also picked up a Seagram's watermelon flavored vodka. I've put myself on a moratorium of whiskey until I can get Angel's Envy which Total Wine insists on staying bereft of.

Martin's had Angels Envy last week when I was there. I want to say Rouses (on Power) had it too.
