    I wish I was.

    Sadly I have to stay at home.

    Although I do have enough variety in my little collection to have my own Dram fest ..... without having to jostle with the crowds of know all knobs that will undoubtedly be present.

    Have fun @MassiveAttack I'm envious

    Oh and take a dram or two for me.

    Cheers
    Pete

    Pete, is it true a lot of malt whisky in NZ is like a hundred bucks a bottle now ? A lot of good malt in the supermarkets here on special, probably work out to fifty bucks.....anyway I am partial to Glenfarclas and when I can afford it Lagavulin - Slainte !

    We will buy anything you can smuggle back at $50 a bottle. Single malt is a luxury goods and there is a lot of overpriced bullshit going on. For a nice bottle of age statement single malt I normally try and stay under $75 and normally closer to $60. In that price range you can't shop at whisky galore. Bottle ships normal have one or two in that price range but the online shop whisky and more normally has better selection for less. Their specials come out Mondays and Wednesdays. It's normally closer to $85 for something from Islay.

    I try and buy a cheap 10 or 12 rather then one of the many non age statement releases with a fancy name that have come out recently because in my experience is a better deal. On a similar note the independent bottler releases I have tried generally haven't been worth the money. Very hit or miss.

    @Mangle

    This is my local liquor store.
    Big Barrel Liquor Online Single Malt Whiskies

    They have a good selection of Whisky's some are reasonably priced some you'll need to take out a second mortgage to afford.

    The best tasting ones are the ones you are given.

    Been quietly sipping on this recent gift ........ bloody nice
    Big Barrel Liquor Online Aberlour A'Bunadh SingleMalt 700ml

    Glenfiddich 12yr reserve is my "No Special Reason" go to Whisky when I just want to have a few quiet ones.

    Cheers
    Pete

    Years ago I was friends with an old farmer from Auchengray back in Scotland who had a saying "There's no such thing as a bad whisky just that some are a wee bit better than others"

    To far to go and it would be way to messy.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It is with out a shadow of a doubt my favourite tipple Pete but for some reason once I have a sip, I then have to have a drink and then drinking leads to guzzling and guzzling leads to waking up in a pool of my own vomit and then the missus gets crabby and ........ oh fuck it just ain't worth starting on the stuff.

    It would be a pleasure Mangle. Throwing a dildo at a politician is just a Kiwi way of saying "you're a dick". Ha ha ha ha

    That Glenmorangie is a very palatable drop.
