    You can't beat Wetherspoons for their prices I find. Rubbish slow service mind.

    Ahh Wetherspoons, haunting ground of scruffy-looking slightly-piss-scented old people who'll order a pint at 9am and nurse it until about mid-day ;).

    Or is that just the Wetherspoons around here... :worried:

    Seem to be finding myself in spoons all the time nowadays, mainly cos they have a decent amount of seating I guess.

    Also the sub-£3 pints (and food here is generally expensive).

    Sure enough the Glen Grant disappeared, so it's been replaced with this:

    Aberlour 10-year double-casked
    . Still very drinkable neat, and a fair bit smoother than I was expecting from a ten.

    I find the air content of whisky bottles increases significantly when they cross the threshold of my house. It's an odd phenomenon, but one I'm very happy researching.

    I tried the absinthe ritual, dripping iced water over a sugar cube into a glass of absinthe. It was so good. My new favorite. Tastes like licorice. But better.

    Last week on my birthday, I drank my first drop of wine. I don't how to say what my feeling was. But I think I'd better drink my homemade juice by my electric juice blender.

    Got a bottle of the new Ardbeg An Oa. Not priced much higher than the standard 10y.o. (I think it was £6 more than the 10) and while very different in character (sweeter, less smoky) a similarly good drink, so well worth the cost. Seems a solid addition to their lineup. Will have another two drinks tonight to firm up my opinion...
