I keep doing this to myself.. An emotional attachment to Old Monky keeps pulling me to buy it everytime I feel like drinking. And then the regret starts as soon as I have my first sip. In hopes that it would've changed, improved, they would have done something about the quality I buy, and I regret. Gone are the days when Old Monk had a thick stout flavor, Where it was rough and had to be watered down suitably. When having it with a dash of coke and water was 'the' drink to have. Sadly now its just a mish-mash of Caramel and sugar. The alcohol is separate and so is the flavor. RIP Monk.. You were too Old.
