  • I don't know if anyone else here has a taste for Calvados, but to me it's great stuff and a favorite, ever since I first ran into it at a working class zinc bar in Paris as the shot accompaniment to a demi tasse. Soon graduated to the better stuff, drunk after dinner most frequently, but even as an aperitif (and an accompaniment to oysters as I ... Read More
