What is included with Std. Bev Package on Azamara?

Recommended Posts

Cutty Sark Whiskey was replaced with Famous Grouse on the included list which was a improvement.

I was copying from the list which I know is the American spelling not the Scottish.

I do considered Famous Grouse to be an improvement on Cutty Sark, but I agree that neither can ever be considered has a upgrade.

Well, piling on the pedantic theme, here in Kentucky its Scotch whisky and bourbon whiskey. And that's how it appears on bar menus!

 

And Jim Beam White Label, which is what is referred to on the Azamara list, is abysmal. If you walk into a bar here and the well bourbon is Jim Beam White, you should just walk away. Jim Beam Black Label, on the other hand (likely not available across the pond), is a magnificent bargain.

On the other hand, the Premium package upgrade bourbon, Woodford Reserve, is considered the ne plus ultra by my bourbon-drinking friends [which may explain why there isn't a bourbon listed on the Ultimate package]

Actually, on our March (extended) Pursuit cruise of South America, there were two bourbons in the Ultimate Package . . . Bulleit and Maker's. My preference was the Woodford, which I consider a few steps above either Bulleit or Maker's.

Strange, all the pictures of the beverage packages are so different.  I expected the wine selections to vary from cruise to cruise, but not the booze.

All packages are affected by what part of the world the ship is in and the supplies they can access.  I have seen several different gins onboard for example as some could not be got in some parts of the world.  South America is one place they have to make a lot of adjustments
