I said dihydrogen oxide, but oxide and monoxide is the same, so yes they do put dihydrogen monoxide in whisky.

The core of nuclear reactors are cooled with Deutrium oxide (D2O) not H2O, it is denser and absorbs radiation better.
Doesn't do any harm, there's about 0,015% of that added to whisky too, it's tasteless and odorless just like E150a.
But that's not new, I don't think there's any way around it.
What's new is getting it by truck, when they got pools and streams of it all over the place happy
But I can believe it, what I don't believe is that JB has a friend... at least not one that knows a woman three doors down... which has a brother working at a distillery wink



That dihydrogen monoxide stuff is frackin' deadly.  Watch out for it, kills tons of people each year.  I'm just sayin'.

La Maison du Whisky for their shameful pricing of the bottles that will be released to celebrate their 60th anniversary.

1600 euro for the Benriach 1966 is massively expensive.

Good luck to you, its good to hear every once in a while a story about a price tag on a bottle of whisky that's make you think `really` but in a very good way.

Sod it, I have had enough.
I am going to nominate everyone who puts worthless crap up on bottle pages pretending that they are doing everyone a favour when actually all they are doing is trying to get their points tally up.sad
There is no emoji for looking seriously pissed off, I think I will suggest it for V4?

This is a pineapple, I have one in my collection and it is unopened.
One has just sold at Lincoln fruit auction for
£1.06
Perhaps someone will find this information useful?

Not really. This just pisses me off because now I realize that I've been paying waaaaay too much for my pineapples. 


But, if you were to tell me that the pineapple crop has been nuked and no more pineapples are to be gotten. Then I may want to go purchase what I can so I'l have them for a rainy day. I'll just need to invest in a deep, deep freezer. Just call me the multi-pineappler.

The Whisky Exchange for also being the money exchange. They calculate € prices for non EU customers, but at an exchange rate that is inaccurate and ca. 10% in their advantage.

Furthermore, any person being so profit driven to offer the Ardbeg Twenty One on the market place, although they cannot have the bottle in their possession yet. What if the bottle breaks and delivery is delayed?

Image result for large and small pineapple

The pineapple on the left is a much older vintage first fill fruit basket but still unopened and worth heaps of money at fruit auction.
The pineapple on the right is a young NAS pineapple and had not had enough time to mature in its box.sad

I believe Sukhinder Singh believes the NAS is a lovely pineapple and has just struck a deal with Del Monte to sell their younger pineapple offering at The Fruit Exchange.

Just read that the new 5 pound bill has been sold on Ebay for more than 200 pounds !!! And it will become widely availiable pretty soon! And you are wondering afterwards why some people are giving so much money on some whiskies that can be found cheaper everywhere? happy

He's a BIG dog mate and it was a BIG chew, keeps him quiet for a couple of hours.
