Whisky should always be cut down to 30%.

Whisky should always be cut down to 30%. Cask-strength (60%) straight sterilises the tongue; bottle-strenght (40%) almost does so. Add water to take to 30%, or even 25%.

Dark Star Brewing Company’s 3.8% Hophead? Brewed about two miles from my father’s house.

a teenage version of a real drink

OBV VP has never passed my lips. Do you have any with which you would be willing to part, for love or money? Well, for ‘good value’ amounts of money? Especially 1963?

Such is progress.

Well, my attempt to family-friendly this BB by asking DT to edit, did indeed cause him to edit. The “o†s became “*†s. Such is progress.

I stayed at The Rubens…

I stayed at The Rubens in London on the night of the Linden Wilkie Nacional Tasting (rather than The Rubens in Blackpool).
