Ah gotcha, yeah, the "Manager's Choice" bottles were a Diageo thing, and the Laga is generally considered the finest of them all. Very rare and sought after by some malt nerds.

I had some 1989 inchgower (bottled 2013. Quite oaky, a little bit of that clynelish like spices with a nice soft almost hidden Sherry finish) and that new (?) auchentoshan three wood (a little underpowered but lovely rich Sherry notes)

I am drinking a most excellent hot cider. I took some of my hot buttered rum batter, melted it into cider, and added 2 oz of Old Overholt. It's a winner.

Ordered a shitton of wine (mostly daily drinkers) and liquor on Amazon today. 50% sale and the stuff I ordered was already well-priced, so effectively 40-50% discount. Most of the daily drinkers and some of the rum is for my mom tho.

Oh, and so this post isn't completely off-topic: drinking some Anchor Brewing Old Foghorn right now. Too much liquorice for my preference (same for their Brekle's Brown Ale). Other than that, good stuff.

No wine from Campania? wink.gif

I'm gonna spend four days in Napoli in the end of January. Very much looking forward to it. I've already gathered quite a bit of information but could use some more recommendations for places to eat at. Can I pm you in a few days/weeks?

Ciao B1os,

in Napoli you have to try the GRECO DI TUFO, a very good white wine from Campania. Falanghina del Sannio (white) and Aglianico (red) are good too.

In Napoli there are really a lot of place good to eat at, and we work very hard with our work, so we don't go out so much.. :) 

Anyway, for example, in Chiaia zone I like pizza or frittura italiana and good kitchen at Donna Margherita. I like the winter garden atmosphere. Please avoid hours with too many people.

You have to try a cake (babà with cream or sfogliata frolla) in GAMBRINUS coffe in Piazza Plebiscito, or a coffee at the Caffé del Professore.

If you visit Chiaia zone, there is a nice parking in some natural historical tunnels (Grotte Borboniche) ...you can visit it...our atelier is just out there, in Via Domenico Morelli 55...please visit us telling that you knew us by Styleforum. Close to us (Quaranta Locatelli) there is Marinella too (200 meters) ... you can compare.ties.. ;) (about the best producers see the thread "The best neapolitan ties"). 

You have to try Pastiera cake of Scaturchio, And in a good restaurant, for example Don Salvatore, you try fish at Acqua Pazza. Or if you like a wonderful panorama, go for a breakfast to the Grand Hotel Parkers...they have a wonderful terrace on the gulf and the breakfast is 13 euro, if I remember well.

Please be really careful about your luggace and wallet in the streets. You are a tourist and may be a target, like in many large cities...and a bit more.

About culture...wonderful medieval churches... Santa Chiara, San Domenico Maggiore, San Lorenzo... in a very ancient and typical zone, Spaccanapoli...or on the hill la CERTOSA, with a beautiful view, or the Capodimonte palace. The Museo Archeologico is really outstanding too, with roman sculptures and paintings from Pompei!

I hope I helped you a bit...

Have a good time!
