I drink this or Jameson. Keeps you warm in this climate and this and the latter mentioned are the best whiskeys on the market. Or maybe I am being biased because I am Irish-decent :). Who knows.

Glad you got the spelling correct there, these are good whiskeys, but they will always be second rate compared with real Scotch Whisky (uisge beatha) :wink:

Tullamore Dew is available in Asda. Tescies used to have it but i've not seen it on their shelves for a while.
It is new to the W Grant range as they obtained the label in a inter company deal.
The good news is W Grants are building a NEW Tullamore Distillery in Ireland to keep us supplied. My personal view is it is one of the best Irish whiskeys 8)

I usually get mine from Morrisons as they are about an half hour walk from mine as I am trying to keep fit (I am too damn reliant on my car these days so to speak :lol:) especially with my Guinness, Tullamore Dew and Jameson indulgence to come next week. I have a fetish for sushi as well as I have just ordered a platter for new years eve. Can't stomach the taste of parsnips or turkey, so its chicken parts for me or duck or if I am too lazy/drunk. I might tuck into some fish and chips on the day! :lol:.

He's been trying to shift that for a long time with no success!! The auction has now ended and it seems that someone bid and one it for £0.99 - a real bargain.

well it could be useful if someones scratchbuilding or the like. I've bought knackered bodies before because some item still attached to it is cheaper to get that way then buying them from a spares outlet. In fact i've got a 37 body somewhere that i bought for 99p just for the buffers. I wouldn't have used the term "slight damage " though. "Slight Catastrophic damage" but not slight

I liked the listing that said "It was in mint condition until I dropped it."
