Samples anyone?

Ted the O'Mara's Irish Creme wholesaler was offering samples at Cellars liquor store. I tried both the Chocolate Mint and Carmel flavors before proceeding on to find some Thanksgiving wine. His lack of accent told me that he's not from the "old country." I'll have to come back for a bottle of O'Mara's another time! I just wonder how many samples I could have tried before he would have cut me off . . .

  1. Keep a bottle aside for an old (former) Dub(liner), please

  2. Ha! I'm glad you didn't find out how many he'd let you try and THEN try to drive home.

  3. I like the Vanilla and the Chocolate Mint...and there are no calories at all! Well, I looked, and I couldn't find any!

    I'm surprised this gentleman had anything left with you wandering nearby! How many bottles did you buy in order to get permission to take his picture?

    Heh. Heh. I'll bet your "wine" was Cherry Kiafa!

  4. You can keep the wine; I would take only the chocolate mint Irish Creme.

  7. I prefer Jameson Irish Whiskey, not the sissy chocolate and mint flavored stuff!

  10. Being in love with Ireland for many decades, wearing an Irish Tribal, this was for sure of interest. Only today I bought me a couple of Guinness - which sadly come in cans...yes, I know it is close to a sin to drink that, but that's the least I get.
    A wonderful first Advent for you

  14. Ah, that's my kind of shop. Recently I ended up waiting in Zurich airport, where they have a whiskey and wine tasting shop. I started chatting to the guy serving (who didn't own the outfit) and by the time I had to take the plane I was feeling no pain....
