Don't know about Tasmanian whisky but their Pino Noir's are superb Bay of Fires in particular. You going to see the Red Queen at MONA? Wife want's to go maybe as an anniversary present for her.

Anyone own any LLBean Polo's and if so are they quite large? Friend recommended going down a size and that their good for Spring/ Autumn but too thick for Summer.

Thanks GF, MONA not on the itinerary yet but will investigate.

Tas is famous for its Pinot of course, though I've developed a bit of a taste for their Shiraz as well. Still have a few bottles left but can't get anymore in Sydney so will see what I can get from the cellar door.

On hooch, there are a few distilleries in and around Hobart I believe; I've heard the products are generally excellent and almost all of it is exported, though I have seen some carried in one or two of the Sydney whiskey shops.

Thanks for the tip JM I'll try to visit Nant as it's on my way from Launy to Hobart. Lark is supposed to be good as well.

Date outfit! 5 hours to go.

 

(And 5 hours of math lectures between now and then, this is going to take forever)

+1 to Hibiki 17yo. Haven't tried Yamazaki 18yo but it is on the bucket list. I'm also partial to Talisker and Ardbeg but definitely only as a winter drink when neat.

I've never tried Charles Tyrwhitt but I thought I'd bag myself some goodies this morning since the price was right.

I don't have firsthand knowledge (yet), but like you I've read some very things about the quality of Tassie whisky, and read some magazine articles on the subject. I hope to get down there again next year sometime to try some.

Uniqlo confirmed in Melbourne. Part of the whole Myer rebuild off the back of Bourke St apparently.

I hope that, for once, they don't try and rip Australians off/unload stock that never sold elsewhere.

PoP

Don't think I have ever come across a Tassie Shiraz anything particular to keep an eye out for?

I tend to drink a lot of SA Langhorne Creek Shiraz, John's Blend is VERY nice indeed, the Cab Sav is worth a look as well. Highly recommended, probably the only solace I will have with the Rugby on Saturday night.

I took some bottles of Tassie whisky to Japan as presents.

Sadly, I suspect that due to cultural behaviours, my friends didn't crack them open and share.

So I have no idea what tassie single malts taste like even though I can honestly say I've spent a fair bit of money on them.

MONA varies a lot - from time to time as well as in each incarnation - but well worth a visit even at its worst. Make sure you take the boat up the river instead of car - its well worth it.

I happen to know when John Glaetzer will be in Canberra for a wine dinner (with Ben Potts). PM me if interested. I think John's Blend is on the menu as well. Always a good night.
