    less taxes on goods here, than in most countries.

    interesting. Kiwi is gods country though, and taxes are the work of the devil. Makes sense.

    Regardless, I might start a waiters friend collection. Anyone now of a decent shop to buy old antique ones in Thailand? might pop off to the auction houses and look in their boxes of chettles.

    I remember going to Tioman Island off Malaysia, taking a nice bottle of wine with me as the resort was "dry"

    they did not even have a corkscrew and the cork would not budge with pushing

    the handyman used a drill to get it out, problem solved, with a little spitting out bits
    I have reported your post

    no idea what that tastes like

    that is made from other fruit, not grapes, so is hardly wine

    and made by NY Jews, so probably adulterated

    Mogen David is an American fortified wine with an ABV of 13-20%, and is the “pride of Westfield, New York.” Nicknamed “Mad Dog 20/20,” this is the quintessential “bum wine,” said to be as “majestic as the cascading waters of a drain pipe.” “Inexpensive” is another polite description for this beverage, which is available in Banana Red, Kiwi Lemon, Orange Jubilee, Strawberry Kiwi, Lightning Creek, Ruby Grapefruit, and the classic Red Grape flavors. The wines have the mouthfeel of a Persian cat, with a similarly sharp, agonizing, and flat-faced finish. Recommended pairings: foraged marshmallows cooked over an open flame garbage receptacle, dentist’s toothpaste, and proximity to potable water.

    sounds delightful

    Just having a laugh.

    It's the poorest of the poor. Even Winos down on Skid Row look askance at Mogen David.

    I went into a 7-11 before and asked the guy behind the counter 3 times for a Cork S-Crew

    He went and got me a can of Coke Zero

    I do not really like wine much above 12.5% to be fair. 14.5% I find a tad too aggressive on the pallet.

    Anything that brands itself as "gentlemen's" is usually rubbish IMHO.

    Who ever sent me the green saying "much the same here old boy" = thanks for it. Much appreciated. All I have had since my excile from the shit throwing pens are reds with insuilts, and from a certain biker (I blocked him and it disappeared so it was him) a pictures of two men engaged in anal sex which made me puke a little.

    Anyway, thanks for ht green who ever you are.

    I had asked fon is she liked gentlemens relish.

    I rather like it despite not being a fish fan. I like anchovies though and put anchovies in a myriad of things, especially roast leg of lamb! I might try a dab of that rubbed on it one time.

    this was as smooth as a baby's bum; that is why we drank too much, it went down and was delicious
