Lemon/ginger "tea". Actually, I'm not; I'm screwing up the courage to.

Public Service Announcement.  Highland Park 12 year old single malt is on offer at the Co-op for £17.25 per bottle.  I may stock up on a few !

Glenlivet Nadurra.

Oh my.  It is interesting (especially as I picked it for around £20, inexplicably reduced in Waitrose). Matured in "First fill american white oak casks" I expected it to be light, and it is with a lemony hint, but there is a richness and depth with a fairly light peatyness. Slight sweet overtones, too. Exceptionally smooth for 60% abv (120+ proof). Very drinkable, unlikely to become a favourite though.

This place has very good prices for Portuguese wines.  The following are all made by the chap who did yours.https://www.portugalvineyards.com/en/search?orderby=price&orderway=asc&search_query=carlos+eduardo&submit_search=Search&p=2


I enjoyed this from M&S https://www.marksandspencer.com/quinta-de-fafide-estate-reserva-case-of-6/p/p21127281  and found the same stuff a lot cheaper on that site. https://www.portugalvineyards.com/en/wines/4635-quinta-de-fafide-reserve-red-2016-5609851524007.html?search_query=Quinta+de+Fafide&results=6


The website didn't like Safari, but when I ordered a case the delivery was fairly prompt.  Must order some more before Brexit  :(

I've got a grumble. Brewers putting their wares out in tins that are 95% wishy washy design, that you can hardly find the brewer name, the beer name, the type on. And as for finding the %ABV? You need a magnifying glass and a treasure map.
Like thus:

No, that's a perfectly reasonable complaint IMHO, that can might just as well not have a label at all.

This is just a tribute.

I've just bought the last 3 bottles they had.  :facepalm:    I read elsewhere that this standard bottling is being discontinued & replaced by "Viking Honour"


They also had Glenfiddich 12 year old for £18 a bottle.

This afternoon, I am in the Legion in Tewkesbury, with a choice of Sarah Hughes Snowflake (8%), Exmoor Beast (6.6%), or something weak and fluffy (Ludlow Gold 4.3).
One of each so far :)
