Stranded on a deserted island - 1 wine, 1 beer, 1 spirit

#1 Post by Alex N » July 14th, 2019, 12:39 pm

Modified version of this fun topic: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=162055
I think the poll threw some people in a different direction, so...

You're going to be stranded on a deserted island for 10 years.
A refrigerated container filled with several of your favorite foods washes onto shore.
A freezer container also filled with several of your favorite foods washes up onto shore.
A third container filled with cooking supplies, range, oven, BBQ, propane, glassware (decanter), utensils, (wine opener) etc and everything (full kitchen and dining supplies) needed to make any dishes you want washes up.
The weather on the island ranges evenly from mid 50's to low 90s and there's a nice hut or cabin with tables, chairs, bed, etc and room for a kitchen from a previous strandee. You'll be comfortable and will have no health, danger or major injury issues while you're waiting to be rescued in 10 years and the food won't spoil.

A final container will wash up filled with pallets of one wine, one beer, and one spirt and for the purpose of the topic you get to pick what those three are.
Style, varietal, blend, specific vintage and producer can all be chosen for the wine, and same for the beer and spirit. (example: any Napa cab, or specifically 2010 Ridge Monte Bello | any west coast style IPA, or Ballas Point Sculpin | any 10 year old bourbon or specifically Mitcher's 10)
There will be no bottled mixers available for cocktails, and we would assume the foods in the containers are limited to cooking and eating mostly, so for the purpose of the topic, would be drinking them neat or with water, or with ice.

Which wine, beer and spirit would you choose to drink for those 10 years?

Krug MV

Havana Club Anejo Rum (Cuban) 7 year (it is a tropical island)

Not too particular on the beer, but most certainly a lager

Some kind of wheat beer -> IMO better to drink beer with foods that one would normally have champagne with, in order to free up a slot for a red wine. If I could replace this with some sort of pet nat I'd be in heaven
2001 Mugnier Amoureuses -> versatile and yet complex, with lots of room for evolution to keep things interesting
Lagavulin 16 -> smoky yet balanced, for when I'm craving something heavier

There are many other things I could pick that would be better drinks on a one-off basis but I'd likely tire of them well before 10 years (e.g. as much as I love Sauternes I couldn't do 10 years of 2001 Yquem)

You may laugh, but it was a coin toss on the Petrus over the Haut Brion, close on Lagavulin over Macallan, since the later is so smooth for every day, and even thought about the St Bernardis, but decided to go lighter. Very close calls.

OK easy:
Cases of 1955 Maison Leroy La Romanee
Casks of Johnny Walker blends, blue or better
Kegs of Thomas Creek Rise Guys Pilsner

Can I find a glass washed up on the shore?

No joke, the Petrus and Lagavulin would be welcome alternates. Though if I were going to go all peaty I might pick Laphroiag over Lagavulin.

Easy

Wine would be Rombauer Chard because cougars would be drawn to my island

Beer would be Dos Equis so that those cougars find me interesante.

Booze would be Captain Morgan which makes me a pirate captain so my ship and crew would be along shortly to pick up me, my cougars, and my buried gold.

I will limit myself to things I have had, so no 1989 La Tache or 1961 Petrus. Assume an unlimited supply, right?

Wine - 1998 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill. If I can describe a complete class of wine, I would say Tete de Cuvee Champagne from top houses. Pol Roger, Salon, Dom Perignon, Krug, Taittinger, Veuve Cliquot (I like La Grande Dame), etc.

Beer - Allegash 10th Anniversary. My wife and I bought the last bottle they had at the brewery, bottle conditioned it for about 5 years, and it was fantastic. There is no more, but you didn't limit it to those with available supply.

Spirit - 2001 Release George T. Stagg 15 year Bourbon. I have about a half bottle left from the second bottle I was able to buy. Also all gone. 31 Year Old Springbank Signatory is a good second choice.
Yes, that's a DM of 1978 Mouton!

I drink a lot of Laphroig, but doesn’t the 25 use some bourbon barrels? I really like the younger bottles.

I think so. I’ve tasted it only once, long ago. Made quite an impression. Out of my price range, but this is a fantasy hypothetical. What’s always in my cupboard is a bottle of Lagavulin 16 and Macallan 18.

Yay!!!!

If I can’t be stranded with Jay...

Current vintage Peter Michael Point Rouge. Going white wine cause it’s tropical.

For spirits, I WILL find a mixer, but I’m going vodka instead of rum: Star of Russia.

For beer, Westies.

I need a wine I can keep cool in the ocean, open without a cork screw, works well when warm out and does not tire my palate. So I will go with an Ode to Lulu from Bedrock.
Beer? I never tire of Collette from Great Divide. Belgium Farmhouse with a unique smokiness.
Spirits, an oaked tequila. So let’s go with a Suerte Reposado.

Since a deserted isle means tropical fruits like coconut and bananas, I want some rum.

For the beer, Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout.

Doubt I'd want wine, so can I trade that for Sarah Shahi?

1999 d'Auvenay Chevalier-Montrachet (in deference to the tropical climate)
Cantillon's Ganevat beer
The best spirit I ever had was a 1945 Fine de Champagne Cognac shipped by André Simon, so would go with that even though it's even more implausible than assembling a pallet of either of the others.

Ok, I’ll play.

1978 Ramonet Montrachet
Heater Allen Pils (forgive me Rick, but I’d also like sufficient tomato juice, lime juice, hot sauce, Maggi Arome imported from France, Tajin, and ice for the occasional Michilada)
Ardbeg. Any of 1974 Provenance, 1976 Manager’s Choice Cask 1391, or my friends and my bespoke ‘72 The Ardbeggeddon. None of that GlenMonsanto shit for me.

The first two are easy:
Old Speckled Hen
Eldorado 25

Wines a problem. Leaning white given the context. But thinking of a decade of evolution. Taking this under advisement and will report back shortly.

I think I’d go with refreshing and tropical for the beer—Corona or whatever.

Same with spirit—some good aged rum—not that picky.

Wine either ‘89 Haut Brion or (from my much more limited Burg experience) ‘99 Prieur Musigny.

Ok I think I’d go for something like Egon Muller Wiltinger Scharzhofberg Riesling Kabinett 2017. Delicious now and great to watch it evolve the first half (third, fourth?) of its journey. Take the rest home with me when rescued.

I can still smell it—incredibly complex! And the ‘01 Meo Clos Vougeot and ‘96 Jadot Bonnes Mares were almost as good. I’m starting to gain an appreciation for how challenging it is to catch a great bottle of a great Burg right at or close to peak maturity. Between wines from our table and the celebration behind us we nailed it multiple times that night!

2012 De Ponte Dundee Hills Pinot Noir - Perfect every time. We've drank cases of this and could drink it forever.

Flying Dog "The Truth" Imperial IPA - Incredibly well-balanced IPA local to us in Maryland.

Eagle Rare 17 - Would settle for the standard Eagle Rare but this is particularly special. George T Stagg is another favorite from the BAC.

Ok, I’ll play.

1978 Ramonet Montrachet
Heater Allen Pils (forgive me Rick, but I’d also like sufficient tomato juice, lime juice, hot sauce, Maggi Arome imported from France, Tajin, and ice for the occasional Michilada)
Ardbeg. Any of 1974 Provenance, 1976 Manager’s Choice Cask 1391, or my friends and my bespoke ‘72 The Ardbeggeddon. None of that GlenMonsanto shit for me.
Mark, I'd probably want an occasional Michilada myself! Vincent, spoken like a winemaker!

I'd go with 2016 Cameron Clos Electrique, Ransom Old Tom gin, and my Pils (which I would drink first since it has a limited shelf life)

I’ll share if you bring suitable hors d’oeuvres and maybe duck for dinner.

Tempier rose
Tesseron 29 for night sipping and Sangria mixing with the Tempier and tropical fruit.
Red Stripe...I’m on a deserted Island, just seems right, since the jerk spices washed up too.

1999 d'Auvenay Chevalier-Montrachet (in deference to the tropical climate)
What a great choice. Probably would pair better with foods you would find or catch on an island.

Beer Kronenberg
Spirit Frapin 1942 bottled by Harvey’s Cognac
Wine Taittinger Comtes 1995 (too hot for red)
ITB
I could agree with you, but then we both would be wrong.

Can't I just have one bourbon, one scotch and one beer?

While your choices were good and I'd take you up on your offer I was referring to the dope I instantly thought started this thread after reading the title rather than you

Much simpler choices, and like Jay, I will not ask for things I've never had:
Wine: 2012 Williams Selyem Estate Vineyard (at least one per day for the ten years)
Spirit: Eagle Rare 17 yr. old;
Beer: I am simple - Firestone 805 or Stella
