Carling should be served frozen, and pushed out to sea.



Yeah I'm looking at you, mate...

i went for one of those whisky tasting groupon things in york about 3 years ago. the bloke who did it was a tit and we didn't get enough to drink, but the one stand out whisky was finlaggan. we bought a bottle and it's been cherished ever since. today i found myself in the unusual environs of marks and spencer's food court (i'm more of a lidl man) and saw they were selling it for £32. it's an islay that's not harsh and nicely peaty. well worth buying as a christmas present.

...and mason's have a stall at the york xmas market selling their orginal and best gin for £35.

i'll accept any returns based on these recommendations.

If you like delicate/floral, Glenmorangie is always reliable and it's often on offer at Sainsbury's. Got the litre for £30 a month or so ago. The standard 70cl is now £26. There are lots of other obscure things to try - have a look at master of malt: https://www.masterofmalt.com/?gclid=Cj0 ... lsrc=aw.ds
On elf their sampler cases is always good fun - as a present at Christmas, especially.

Lidl round our way do a very acceptable single malt for €15, tastes like summat twice the price. Next time you're in check it out

This being the time of year it is, I’m pretty much done in with dos involving shit beer, shit wine and shit finger food in rooms above shit pubs.

Last night I experienced the worst snack food I’ve ever encountered. Picked up an innocent looking breaded lump assuming it was fried chicken and it was a fucking BREADED MACARONI CHEESE. What cunt ever thought that would be ok?

Blame the septics for the Mac&"cheese" thing in all its satanic horror.

Was at a posh dinner on the last trip during which was served a side of Mac&"cheese" with lobster tail chunks in it. Septics described it as a delicacy. I had my own words.





Fuck Kraft and fuck Mac&"cheese".

Up early cooking a rather lovely large piece of ham whilst the kitchen is quiet. I will enjoy some of it this evening with the potted Stilton I bought last week.

Thought it was kind of interesting that Tesco in Worksop has a really quite decent range of craft beer, far better than Tesco in Lewes, but not a single bottle of wine over eight quid.
