I was advised to try chancho marino when I was in Peru as part of the "pick something of the menu at random and see if it's any good" experience thinking it was some kind of Peruvian surf 'n' turf.

I received an oversized tuna steak (I love tuna steak) but the flavour was a bit more mellow and it had a smoother texture. Half-way through my friend translated it for me and I immediately regretted not taking a photo before hand to show off my achievement.

So, to answer your question, it's quite good, but I prefer tuna.

Think of squirrel meat mixed with stewed alligator liver sauteed in shark oil and spruce. That's the approximate taste.

Gentlemen, please. Your collective conduct is rather unbecoming. As users of this board, it is your duty to act and speak in a civilised manner. I can see that there are certain disagreements in this thread, however I see no need for foul language and name calling.

In regards to the OP; I'm afraid I shall not be sharing this image with my acquaintances, for comedic purposes or otherwise. I apologize for disappointing you.

The questioned posited by the OP's gentleman in the picture is indeed of utmost importance. The search of a random generator, based solely on deterministic rules, seem to be a contradiction in itself and yet, one that is continually advanced. While no current scheme is perfect they are often within the error mark of many systems and they certainly took more than two days to formulate.

As for the gentleman's attire, I must say quite dandy.

Gents, what do you call a night?
No sex or illicit activities.

For me, it's:
-Bohren & Der Club of Gore (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuKVDJXUQnc)
-Montecristo Cigar
-Macallan Scotch with ice
-Shadowy, dark building silhouettes on the city skyline, that contrast with the mellow light of the streets

File 135601287854.jpg - (32.22KB , 300x300 , JAGERMEISTER.jpg )

Good afternoon gents. I am starting into drinking alcohol other than beer and should like to inquire as to what cocktails are acceptable for any self-respecting male to drink?

I believe Manhattans, Martinis, and Sidecars are acceptable, but have no knowledge as to anything else as I am an utter novice in these matters.

Also, I recently purchased 1 and 3/4ths liter of Jagermeister; aside from the so-called Jagerbombs and Jagerade, are there any classier cocktails that could be made, or should I just drink Jager by the shots?

My novice impressions of Jagermeister are that it is rather strong and bitter tasting, but it creates a pleasant burning sensation in the throat and stomach after consumption. It also aids in digestion as an herbal liquor. I find tequila and vodka to be extremely nasty, though the lemon helps the tequila go down better. I cannot compare with other liquors such as whiskey and Gin for I have not tried those before. Would you gentlemen be so kind as to introduce me to new liquors, with reference to aspects such as strength and taste?

Not sure how you feel about Scotch whisky, but the Rob Roy is a fantastically gentlemanly drink.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/02/06(Thu)18:49 No. 2701

Straight Cognac, alongside a cup of black coffee, is the perfect end to any fine meal.

Savouring the bouquet of a fine Cognac while you gently heat it to drinking temperature (cold Cognac, as whisk(e)y, is not nice), by holding the glass in the palm of your hand, is a pleasure in itself. Then, the gentle impact of the first sip, followed by the richness of the full taste. Finally the lingering warmth of the aftertastes as you finish imbibing the first mouthfull.

I'm a big fan of Bache-Gabriel's, especially the XO. For first timers I might suggest Deluze XO, as it's extremely smooth - though some might say it's too smooth. Some may even consider it a bit of a ladies Cognac, since it's so easy to drink, but don't let that detract you from trying it.

As for mixed drinks I'd say Irish Coffee is a safe bet, and indeed any gentleman should know how to prepare it, as it requires a certain amount of skill to do well. (and,please , use plain double cream, not whipped cream or, heaven forbid, anything from a pressurized can.)

Jagermeister is cool as a digestif after a meal and not much else, on the rare occasion I drink it - I'd shot it.

Tequila is not all bad, go for a respectable brand and if you don't like the bite from the blue agave in a blanco tequila, go for an anejo (aged) - aging in wood softens the bite of the alcohol and makes it more complex. I drink fine anejo tequilas like I do a scotch: in a rocks glass - neat.



Onto a list of gentlemanly cocktails:

Daquiri (real one, not frozen)
Sazerac
Sidecar
Martini
Manhatten
Tom Collins

I watched "The Good Shepherd" tonight. Fantastic piece of fiction, that was. Absolutely brilliant espionage film directed by DeNiro. I might even go as far as to claim that it is the finest espionage film ever made. I suggest you utilize your eyes to view this piece in its full glory. It's truly spectacularly good.

I believe that modern filmographic devices displaying images at rapid speeds to create the illusion of movement would be a fine topic of discussion for fine gentlemen such as ourselves, would you not agree? Let us, perhaps, begin to list some of our most favored sophisticated films.

Back to the Future is a cinematic masterpiece (its sequels less so). Its screenplay is of particular brilliance, wasting not words nor seconds in conveying its genius. Alas, Robert Zemeckis has not, in recent years, produced anything quite as smashing, and in a few cases has produced absolute rubbish instead.

In my opinion, John Sturge’s “The Magnificent Seven” is a much more entertaining motion picture than Kurosawa’s critically acclaimed “Seven Samurai”. Despite the former being a remake of the Japanese classic, I would say that “Seven Samurai” contains certain scenes that are far too long(and occasionally irelevent) for the casual cinema enthusiast. The film seems to be more concerned with portraying life in feudal Japan, rather than providing a rambunctious action flick to watch with your working class chums.

What is a gentleman's religion/belief?
Does a gentleman share such things?
What is the key element that defines a gentleman, mentally/emotionally?

Not at all, my good man. It is merely a geographical cause. The users of this forum, being located mostly in the Western world, are most likely to be practitioners of Western religions.

It is not, therefore, indicative of the general opinion of we gents of the seven leaves regarding Eastern religions, it merely indicates our general sphere of residence.

Too true. I'd say that organized religion is harmful, but private spirituality is, if anything, quite the opposite.

And I believe in one Earth, the Mother of us all, and in one Womb wherein all men are begotten, and wherein they shall rest, Mystery of Mystery, in Her name BABALON.

And I believe in the Serpent and the Lion, Mystery of Mystery, in His name BAPHOMET.

And I believe in one Gnostic and Catholic Church of Light, Life, Love and Liberty, the Word of whose Law is THELÊMA.

And I believe in the communion of Saints.

And, forasmuch as meat and drink are transmuted in us daily into spiritual substance, I believe in the Miracle of the Mass.

I still listen to metal but I stopped "dressing metal" at 22.

I had a shitty job, shitty friends and a whinging emo bitch girlfriend.

I dumped them all, cleaned up my act and got a nice paying job in IT.

One could enjoy the occasional pipe or cigar while staying classy as long as all of it is of high quality and it is done simply for the pleasure of the quality while staying classy but other than that tobaccy is never classy. It's about as classy as having tattoos or soiling oneself.
