    Nice one... If you can find a good one again, I'd advise revisiting it, as it's just lovely!

    What he said, some SMWS treats there too I see, Ardbeg Corryvreckan (yummy) and an interesting Caol Ila. Yet to try an Octomore.

    So much whisky, so little time!

    Yeah, the Corry is almost done unfortunately... There was an Ugi before that, that was stunning too...

    I do have a bottle of Kelpie on the way though, thatíll be an interesting bottle

    The Caol Ila is one Iíve not come across before, itís the colour of water more or less, so itíll be an interesting dram

    The Octamore is amazing, but, it lingers a long time, hence why Iíve hardly touched it. Itís so oily, the taste sits with you for hours!

    The SMWS bottles are great fun, the Tar Very Much is lovely, a smooth drinker, but quite hot. I have their Eviscerated Jelly Babies too, thatís a great dram

    Thumbs up Birra Moretti Grani Antichi

    Just a heads up guys... Had this earlier today, and it was excellent. Rather alcoholic at 8% A.B.V, but so very flavoursome, rich, malty and hoppy. Think Italian Leffe Tripel - an unusual but rather rewarding beer, available from Tesco:

    Get some in for Christmas, folks - it's a corker!

    Ah well - another chance to get pickled gone!

    Would be at least £3 per bottle north of the border based on an 8% alcohol content - minimum pricing.

    Can't be, Dave, as my dad bought some only the other day, so it *exists* in the Wrexham store., and therefore likely others. Could be the software hasn't been updated with latest stock levels, so best to visit your local store and see

    **Iíve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    **Hate makes you impotent, Love makes you crazy. Somewhere in the middle you can survive.**

    ďNothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.Ē

    ďYou see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.Ē

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    ďThere's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!Ē

    That's the only one I can comment on, though. It really is good, so worth finding!
