Sent the Mrs to Tesco - that offer wasn't on. All was not lost however, as she diverted to AsDA and picked up JD at £16 so cant grumble

I usually bring back a couple or three bottles of JD back home from France but have noticed this year that the cheese eating surrender monkeys have ramped up the price to over 20 euros and the best I could find it was on "Offerto" of -1 Euro. i.e. 19.81 euros. Considering there's always offers on in the various Supermarket its a no brainer not to bother. Case in point went to the nearby Sainsburys "local" store today where I snaffled myself a bottle for £17.

You can usually find me mooching around the spirits aisles of supermarkets like a two bit whore in need of a fix.

I think its must just be the popularity of Jack pushing the prices up. Case in point I got myself a bottle of Wild Turkey for 17 euros last week. It was a toss up between that and Jim Beam for 15. Haven't had turkey for a while and it evaporated quite nicely. Shame I didn't have my wits about me and bring a case back. cos I just checked online and its usually knocked out at around £23. I had a fleeting moment of madness thinking I could head back own the ports and across the channel before I realised the cost effectiveness or lack thereof hardly justified it.

Fucking hindsight is a wonderful thing - I enjoyed that Wild Turkey. Previously I had thought it had a rather antiseptic flavour when I was imbibing it on a regular basis, but since I haven't had one for a while it was as smooth as owt. Sigh.

Never mind, at least I still brought back a few decent bottles and boxes of red as cheap as chips relatively speaking. Wished I had brought back a few more of the 2014 Merlot @ 9 Euros, it was fucking lush between the beer and the last of the JD last night. The French keep all the good stuff and send us the overpriced dregs. I once bought wor lass a bottle of white for a euro for a laugh. I watched her expression as she took her first glug but instead of wincing she gave an appreciative smile. I tried it and instead of being the equivalent pf lemon juice it was comparable to anything that would cost you well over a fiver over here.

I got some Turkey in the Tesco Express in Jesmond at the weekend for £17.

You may have noticed that the alcohol has dropped to 40.5%. It used to be 50 I think.

Wtf were you doing in Jesmond? Have you moved back oop north?

Dint notice the alcohol content. I'm sure the 50 proof is the American standard equal to our 40% abv. Any road, you're the fken Scientist so can you provide a definitive answer, none of this "I think" nonsense.

Moving on to other matters, can we have some rainbow smileys for Pride week?

I was up for a weekend as went to a do on the Saturday night.

In the US proof is twice the ABV %. So a 40% whiskey will be 80 proof.

Wild Turkey 101 is still available. It has 50.5% ABV. https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/p/1237...turkey-101
