Wind gusts here have been vicious enough to snap three of the 6ft posts on my garden fence. This morning's job was to temporarily support the fence with guy-ropes before it had chance to thrash itself to bits.
How long 'temporary' turns out to be depends of course on this bl**dy lock-down. I doubt if fence-posts are deemed to be vital even if any supplier is open for business.
Dry and bright here, though with a strong and chill easterly wind. Also, having been dry for a week it’s becoming possible to get out on foot without risk or over-topping your wellies. So we had a good walk this morning. Saw a few other folks in the distance.
Must admit I am not a whisky drinker.
I used to enjoy it, as long as it wasn't too peaty/smokey, but trying to work our way through too many of the 100 different whisky's on offer at the Golden Lion (I think) in Padstow in the mid/late 1980's is probably the reason I don't drink it now! I really should have learnt from previous experiences - I haven't touched dark rum since a Young Farmers Carol singing night in the late '70's, or Guinness since a free Guinness night at Uni in ~1980.
Good real ale - preferably quite hoppy (and as I said above I hope this pandemic isn't the end of the many great small and medium sized breweries that there are now), Good Wine, and Armagnac are my main tipples now. That covers enough options I think
Been watching some train videos on youtube, filmed from the cab of a train I have found them very addictive!
My favourites include the Bernina express, we went on this a couple of years ago and took the Jag over the alps to Tirano so lots of happy memories. And the famous 1953 speeded up film from Lo0nodn to Brighton in 4 mins.
Jeez..... some serious whiskey buffs here. How many bottles??! Was given a bottle of Dalwhinnie (the 15 year old stuff) years ago - and I liked it. My tongue did anyway. My stomach, not so much. Was never much of a spirits drinker, though quite liked the occasional Bombay Sapphire.
Long time beer/wine drinker, especial real beer, but alcohol free for about 5 years now having finally worked out what was causing the headaches. Not talking about your standard hangover here.....
Lol yeap i always add, never finish a bottle, don't know why its become a habbit.
oooo Glendronach Allardice 18 looks nice, i try and buy sub £100 bottles, but that could be a treat for the end of this!
The Tomatin is only available from the distillery in person, i have a friend of a friend who works there.
I dunno if you have tried the Project XX from Glenfiddich but its a really nice whisky for a really nice price!
