    Signs, you say it was a "very nice" bottle of single malt.

    My question is - was that an unbiased review, or was saying that a condition on receiving the "gift"? :D

    Someone has suggested bias may be a part of signs' review of the malt... quick, close the thread!

    In fairness, I think we need to hear his review of other single malts before we jump to such assumptions. This may simply have been the first one he sampled.

    At least it was whisky. I have noticed that Calvados has a nasty habit of making people very argumentative if over-indulged, rather than, like last nights thread, just a bit lively

    (So if anyone wants to organise a whip round to buy Rob a bottle of Calvados to drink, count me in for a couple of quid. Purely in the interests of science of course)
