    Lol - hiding from it all? Understandable!

    Hope it's all going well, mate. Moving house is always a nightmare, especially when you're older and have accumulated so much stuff!

    As an aside, how did you find the Bitterol I mentioned, compared with Aperol?

    You'll find it near their 'middle isle' in a separate section, along with some other Alpenfest stuff, not where the rest of the beers are. I'm going tomorrow to get a load more!

    Top beer as is their standard (Patronus?) wheat beer at 1.25 for 500ml. Find it in the fancy beers sections

    Yup, anything genuinely German, sold either by Lidl or Aldi, is always top-notch and great value!

    Decided to top up the whisky cabinet, so took a punt on a bottle of this: https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/p/...productReviews

    Should be a bit different from the norm!

    Just enjoying a bottle of this now, from Aldi:



    Very nice lager indeed!

    Bad photos but astonishing stuff.

    Majestic. 16 a bottle but 10 pick and mix for 6.

    Worth every penny of 10. Independent of price, this is the best white wine I have ever drunk in my entire life.

    Seriously fucking good. No other way of putting it.

    Interesting wine (and label), Justers... If you're into that style of wine [heavily-oaked Chardonnay with a big vanilla hit], then California or Australia do it very well, as do Chile. I prefer subtler, less oaky but equally flavourful whites, such as Viognier, or the Chardonnay grape how the French treat it, commonly known as Chablis

    Do me a favour, and as a comparison, next time you're in Majestic, give this a go and let me know what you think: https://www.majestic.co.uk/wines/nettie-viognier-18058

    It won't be quite as 'big' a mouthful, or as heavily oaked, as the Chardonnay, but it'll have a beautifully aromatic bouquet and rich fruity flavour all of its own

    If I remember but Viognier has never struck me in the past.

    The Bread & Butter does NOT taste like wine initially. After the first few sips, though, you realise it is indeed wine.

    For me, it is incredible. And I recommend it to anyone as a MUST try. Including you, dude.

    Give it a go, Justers, and see what you think. Trust me, it'll be good

    I'd defo enjoy the B&B, and can well appreciate its quality, as I've had similar in the past.
