    Good stuff, guys. It's a veritable Billy Bargain... Plenty others like that, too!

    And which reminds me... When you return to Lidl, Robin, be sure to scroll back first on this thread to where I highlighted what was worth getting, from the pics you took of the shelves, as there are some stonkers in there

    This (which was shown in your pic) is an *absolute must*:



    Think 'poor man's' Chteauneuf-du-Pape, but not so poor!

    And don't forget the Chablis (also shown on the shelves):



    But don't wait too long to go back, as their stocks change frequently!

    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.

    Should be a good whiskey for that very good price. A mix of bourbon, sherry and European oak I think

    A mix of virgin, seasoned and Oloroso casks according to the label. Great bargain for that price, is going down well

    :doh

    I love the short bread and the dark fruits and hint of chocolate,baking spices and finish of apricots and vanilla that lasts forever in Redbreast 15 it is in the top 3 whiskeys I ever had. My favorites are Glen Farclas 21,Redbreast 15 and Eagle Rare 10.
    And followed by Red Breast 12CS. Please Grant ,Tell me more about the Powers 12. In detail ,what is better about it than the 15? For me the RB15 is near a perfect dram.I just wish it was over 60 ABV.
