    Dillons 3 oaks rye

    Quite dry and with a long finish.. Smooth too.
    Small batches from copper pot stills give it an interesting character.
    Opens up nicely with a very small bit of water.

    Lol - when you come down to the 'end of the lockdown' outdoor party we'll be having (when that occurs), you can bring down some of your whisky collection, and I'll sort out the wine and food!

    Deal?

    Robin, you'll be getting asked to haul your ass down here, too! Marquee, live music, the lot...

    Currently enjoying an ice-cold one of these Czech lagers, which are superb [one of the best I've tasted], on this beautifully warm, sunny evening here in Wrexham:





    Very full-bodied, smooth and gorgeously creamy!
