  1. That horse has done me a good turn a couple of times this year. On it again today.
  2. Ho hum. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Pie and Bovril mobile app
  3. Lumped it all on "no". If it comes in, I'll be a bit more reserved for the next one..... Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Pie and Bovril mobile app
  4. I've backed this horse the last two times it has won. Goldie is a shyster, the amount of times you see him heading down to the winners enclosure with a smug grin in his face as a 10/1 shot wins is unreal. He's got four at musselburgh tomorrow, so I'll probably perm 3/4. It's when he takes only 1 or 2 down south that my attention gets grabbed....

  5. Anybody tried the free go at this? https://beatthedrop.paddypower.com I've managed to get to Q7 with 638k intact. I'm not naive enough to think I'll win a fortune on it, but as it is, I'm on to just under £40 if I split the rest of the answers 50/50. Only thing is, I'm stumped for tomorrows first question. Will Hungary v Australia be a draw at half time? Two shit teams, so could be a goal fest or a shit fest. Who knows? Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Pie and Bovril mobile app
  6. My take on it is that the first principal of the right to be forgotten rules out specifics that are captured in the bookies terms. the personal data is no longer necessary for the purpose which you originally collected or processed it for; For the purpose of tracking the eligibility of opening offers, they retain details on household, IP address, card numbers etc. They could claim that was the purpose (or one of them) Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Pie and Bovril mobile app
  7. Couple of good buys on the swa today. Top one is for someone else, the bottom two for me.
  8. Nope. First one was Thursday night, second one this morning. Wasn't as clean cut as I thought tbh. Also had £20 on Clyde to score 5+ @ 15/2
  9. I always use scotch whisky auctions as a guide. They've got a cracking archive.
  10. If I was given a limit of £100 to spend on my last bottle of whisky, that would be one of the ones I would be considering.
  11. Opened the Jura last night. Very oakey. Will be ok for an Old-Fashioned I suppose.
  12. I got the last 2 in my local store (well, the missus did...well trained!). Seemingly the staff had snaffled 5 bottles just beforehand. To give a bit of a guideline, last year when the hibiki 12 was discontinued Tesco were selling them off for £25 a bottle and unmanaged to get 4 - 1 to drink, 1 to keep and 2 to give away. They are now going for around £100 on Scotch Whisky Auctions...
  13. Jura are rebranding their range and discontinuing their current ones. https://scotchwhisky.com/magazine/latest-news/18067/new-dawn-for-jura-as-it-overhauls-range/ Asda have discounted the diurachs own to £18.50 a bottle. I believe it's nationwide.
  14. For me, it depends on the cocktail. I use a malt for a couple of cocktails. In fact I'm messing about with trying to re-create one I have sometimes...but I should really just go back to the place that makes the cocktail and be a bit more observant.
  15. I'm a big fan of various Ancnocs. The Peter Arkle Editions were not bad, but one stood out. Its been sitting in the house for over a year and I only just opened it at Xmas. Have to keep it out the way or it would get finished.
  16. On the subject of Aldi, I bought this last year and soon wished I bought a couple... https://www.aldi.co.uk/29-year-old-single-malt-whisky/p/078777186828200
  17. Looking back at my photos from Saturday I managed quite a few stalls but not the compass box one. The adelphi stall had a fair few good ones, and was surprised at their private blend. Not sure if this was due to my consumption by that time, but I've ended up with a couple of bottles, one of which I'll probably give to my mate. Depends what happens when I open the one at the weekend.
  18. I went to the 2nd session. Was a good night, but maybe not one I will repeat in a while...took me till I went out on Sunday night to get rid of the taste of whisky. Probably the best for me was getting a taste of the Glenflarcas 25. It's basically the 15yr x100 (or plus 10, depending on how you look at it). Will be looking about for a decent price on it.
  19. They do a 28 year old for under £50 near Christmas that is well worth a punt.
  20. Think the blood oak is an airport exclusive nowadays.
  21. Cashed out when wolves scored their second as I am a big wuss.
  22. I put £140 on under 1.5 just before kick off. So only £894 up.
