Match Preview Emiliano Sala TributeThe Cardiff City Stadium will be a site of tribute to Emiliano Sala on Saturday, following the disappearance of the club’s record signing when he took a private jet to fly over to Wales from France early last week.Although debris has been found, nothing more has yet been turned up.Sala’s former club, Nantes, paid an emotional tribute to the Argentine on Wednesday as they drew 1-1 with Saint-Etienne, and now it is the Bluebirds’ turn to pay homage.Following the narrow loss to Arsenal, manager Neil Warnock explained how proud he was of the performance his team produced.“We talked about Emiliano before the game and I thought it was appropriate that we gave a good account of ourselves against a good side and I thought we could’ve won the game,” Warnock told BBC Sport.“What a performance! If Arsenal had our chances, they would’ve beaten us by four. Nineteen shots at the Emirates, it’s definitely our best performance of the season.”Centre-back Sol Bamba, though, explained how the drama has impacted the squad. “It is a very unusual situation, a big tragedy. We have all been affected by it, the lads, the city, the whole club,” he told BBC Sport Wales.”We have had some help. We travel by plane and some of the lads have been thinking: ‘I don’t want to go on it anymore.’”A home game may, therefore, prove a slightly easier occasion to handle, but the bottom line for City is that they need the points: they find themselves four points adrift in the relegation zone. Bournemouth, meanwhile, have few such problems after back-to-back home wins over West Ham and Chelsea. Their stunning second-half display at Dean Court will be the standard that Eddie Howe seeks, but the context of this match means that it will be difficult for either team to truly have their minds focused on the game.  Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Review: Tequila With Hints Of Peanut Butter?

first_img The Best American Liqueur 9 Best Spirits For Spiked Apple Cider Maestro Dobel Diamante Blends 3 Tequilas Into One 5 of the Best Aged Tequilas to Drink When the Weather Cools Down 9 Best Tequilas (and 3 Mezcals) for Palomas, According to Bartenders Just as with whiskies, there has been a boom in the number of tequilas available on the US market in the last few years. Blue Nectar Tequila is one of those brands, with four different expressions to choose from.Blue Nectar Reposado Extra Blend is double-distilled, aged six to eight months in charred North American oak barrels, then blended with three-year extra añejo tequila. This 100-percent estate-grown agave tequila is made in the lowlands of Jalisco at the Tequila Selecto de Amatitan distillery.Nose: A fairly smooth nose with notes of smoke and a slight oakiness. There are also hints of vanilla and honey. Overall, a pleasant nose.Palate: Honeyed fruits come through the most on first and second sip of this. These flavors mix with the smokiness from the nose and are rounded out by some pepper. A little bit of cinnamon spice can also be detected.Finish: Short to medium finish. It left me with, of all things, a little bit of a peanut butter flavor, most likely because of the mix of honeyed fruits and the smoke together. There’s a nice warmth and the liquid goes down smoothly.Final Thoughts: The blend of añejo and reposado tequilas is an interesting choice, and it helps bring a little bit of a smoother character to the tequila itself. It also gives the tequila a nice color—not too light and not too dark. The peanut buttery notes I got make me think it would be a good addition to hot cocoa in the coming winter months.Blue Nectar REB retails for $54.99. Editors’ Recommendations last_img read more
