Any Glenfiddich aficionado's? Was wondering if there were any discernible differences in taste and appreciation between the 12, 15 and 18 year old variations? Is it worth paying a few dollars more for the 15 over the 12?

One of my all time favourite movie scenes and dialog. Awesome film.

Omega is trying to catch up with Rolex in terms of being an equal. Rolex on the other hand is executing a strategy of pushing their product further out of reach so as to make it even more desirable. They can do this as long as there are people out there wanting to pay the price of which no doubt there are.
I would say that the biggest losers are dealers who are forced to buy stock particularly those who are sensitive to the current economic climate.

I am shortly to hit Sydney City for some outdoor drinks at the Opera Bar which is an outdoor bar at the Sydney Opera house that overlooks the famous coat hangar bridge. The weather today has been cloudy but stifling humid and hot. As per the radar image it looks like I am out of luck as Sydney is about to be hit by rain from the West. Red spots are really bad.
I know many of you will say take a rain coat or an umbrella and I can figure that myself but what does one wear...

I am close to getting a MTM made and was doing the rounds of all the stores which are close to where I work to see if there might be something worthwhile OTR. Some of these stores claim that the fabric is English while one had no idea (but that's ok because it was a very cheap...

Perth, though, is a complete desert when it comes to fashion unfortunately. Everyone seems to wear surfer t-shirts and ill-fitting/ugly clothes....
