And here's my double overhand knot. Look at the beauty of this ancient bespoke vintage ties 7 folds and all unlined and all hemmed by hand.

Sorry but this was over long ago. Unfortunately, because the quantity is limited vintage.

Thanks Stitch

Doodals, everything has a price...

"Sorry but this was over long ago. Unfortunately, because the quantity is limited vintage."

Seemingly the laws of supply and demand have an impact on price methinks mwink[1].gif

Uncle Cleav, 

 

I received a PM that contradicts his former statement so I'll soon be able to copy you. :bounce2:

I'm no Scotch expert, but have recently taken to Islay malts with a passion. Started with Laphroaig Quarter Cask, transitioned to their PX Cask (which is barrelled in old Pedro Jimenez sherry casks - lends a terrific sweetness to the finish. I'm a big fan of this one.)

Recently I was at a duty-free store with Laphroaig on my mind. In a hurry, I picked my poison, reached out, grabbed, paid and left. Only when I got home did I discover that I had in fact purchased Lagavulin 16yo. This is known as "serendipity".

Alas, the Lagavulin disappeared all too quickly. So tonight I'm sipping on Bowmore. Not the greatest Islay, but not bad either. It's all they had at the liquor shop, hidden among bottles of Johnnie Walker Lord Fauntleroy Limited Edition and other overpriced crap.

I've never been a big fan of the Lagavulin. Ardbeg IMO does the best at balancing the peaty, medicinal flavors of islays against the other notes and if what you want is peat and iodine it's really hard to beat Laphroaig. Lagavulin always seemed to me like they couldn't decide which they wanted to do. I have not tried the PX cask but I suppose I should now. I like a good sherry finish from time to time. I've also been enjoying the bottle of Bunnahabhain I have at home. Pretty sure the other bottle I have at home is a Balvenie 16 year. It's also good, but I'm not as big of a fan of speysides as Islays.

By far, that title goes to Absolut "Peppar"

You will gag immediately

The best vodkas I ever had were in Kyiv. One was Russian Standard Platinum, which you would expect to be amazing. The other was a Ukranian label pepper vodka which we passed around pretty constantly. It was good stuff.

This is the first example I have seen of double vadge in neckwear. Impressive.

So there are many things anti-SF going on here. And I'm not sure I'd wear it in the wild, these days. But I still really like the way this looks. Felt like commenting on this.

That's a different look but I like it.
I like that SF has different looks.
