    Here's a nice one, it's probably my favourite blended Scotch and not that common, i think some of the larger Asda stars stock it, that's where i get it from at least.

    Used to be my favorite blend until a couple years ago when they changes the blend and the bottle shape. Was an Islay based blend but they have diluted the blend.

    Yes i remember that, the bottle used to be green too, which made little sense, for me though a blend based on an Islay malt retains more of the character from the base malt which is why i like it.

    More claret! Happy says she's fed up and wants something full-bodied and Italian for a change

    Btw, Lidl have got some superb, fruity and refreshing whites in from the Veneto region of Northern Italy, which would make lovely spring/summer drinking.

    I know you're partial to a cheeky wee Pinot Grigio, but these wines made from grapes indigenous to the Veneto area are in a similar style, and arguably better.

    This is the pick of the bunch: https://www.lidl.co.uk/en/Wine-Cella...articleId=2055

    And if you want one of the nicest Pinot Grigio you'll have tasted, try this:

    https://www.lidl.co.uk/en/Wine-Cella...articleId=2058

    Superb with a seafood risotto or pasta!

    Finally, something from a little further south, in Puglia, *this* is a real stonker:

    Now run along and get them before they run out!

    Yes, Grant, that's a very nice regional red. I think it'd be right up your street

    The whites were mainly for Barry, as I know he likes to sip on something fresh, young and fruity in the summer, and her name's not Nancy...
