    Ive noticed a problem with the original thread, taking me to page 1 of the thread. Assuming its the same problem as my original Brexit thread (stolen by WMC lol) that there were too many pages, i have started another weather thread (stolen from lightbodyae55 lol).

    The only person who got all his work done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.
    Anything i post over three lines long please assume it is an article lol.

    in comparison im watching Casablanca and having a wee malt.

    Have you ever tried welsh whisky. Penderyn use a single copper pot still which produces a flavourful spirit of extraordinary strength and purity and was designed by Dr David Faraday, descendent of the ground-breaking Victorian scientist, Michael Faraday. https://www.penderyn.wales/our-process/ This whisky is the original Penderyn ‘house style single malt’, aged in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in ex-Madeira wine casks to bring out its full gold character. It is bottled at 46% abv. It has won gold awards since 2017. Personally I’m not a whisky fan more of a rum or G&T drinker, but family members say like a wee dram of whisky and like this one 🙂

    I had a bottle of Penderyn once; think it was a wined one using Madeira casks as the finish but cant overly remember other than i didnt particularly like it. might have been the wine. anyway i gave it away to a friend after several attempts to drink it. Ive still got a little Hellyers rd pinot noir finish, which is from tasmania. ive never managed to finish it in the years its been open. I like sherry finishes and port ones too on occasion though. the wine ones are just a bit overpowering for me.

    i need to try a penderyn without a finish in it to be sure of its house style so maybe get that one day.

    Thanks kezo. My apologies for hijacking the weather thread with discussions about golden nectar, lol. I’ll try and remember to post on our “Daily Digest” with any other non weather libation related comments.

    Maybe a new thread “Whats your favourite tipple” or something as it maybe easier to reference if someone is looking to try something ne. @struth can be our resident whisky/whiskey expert:-)

    I believe they also do a sherrywood and portwood both bottled at 46%. They also do a rich oak which is bottled at 50% 🙂

    They can be seen on the link I posted as well as their others “icons of Wales”

    Weather wise shaping up to be a better day although still only 12c and partly cloudy.

    Lovely day, lovely day.

    When I wake up in the morning, love
    And the sunlight hurts my eyes
    And something without warning, love
    Bears heavy on my mind

    Then I look at you
    And the world’s alright with me
    Just one look at you
    And I know it’s gonna be
    A lovely day

    A very sunny and pleasant 22C here in the hills. I’m going to the lovely old market town of Ledbury in a moment. It’s just ten minutes away and a couple of hundred years back in time.

    (I might pop into ye olde Aldi, just to ruin the illusion.😁)

    Thanks for the info Joss. I’m counting my groats as we speak.

    Same as… Sunny, warm, lovely. Temperature peaked at 25C a couple of hours back. Much gardening to be done which, tragically, ain’t gonna happen anytime soon.  Wonky back went wonkier yesterday; walking really painful; picking up anything like a watering can impossible. Bugger! Now crammed full of tramadol, paracetamol and valium – and sporting lidocaine patches in vain hope that it might improve.

    BTW @POPS Heard that Aldi stopped taking groats because of brexit. Doubloons only accepted now.

    As before, but hotter. Doing 27C in garden right now. Forecast to nudge 30C. Sympathies to those here who suffer under the heat. Must confess, I am just loving it. 🌞

    mist and drizzle …. should that be mizzle?

    I can”t see the Cotswold ridge and with just a very light breeze it looks like a damp day ahead.

    There’s still a quiet beauty to it though.

    Started same as: clear, sunny, no wind and dead hot. Garden thermometer hit 30C just before lunch.Been “downhill” since then. Clouded up with a few light showers of warm rain with great big drops. Delightfully British-summer weather. Got a tad more windy but still need full air-con: i.e. all windows which will open are open. Temperature now down to 25C. Big thunderstorms forecast tonight. ⛈️

    Well, here’s a change! Grey, cool (16C – ten degrees lower than yesterday) and skies threatening a jolly good downpour. Had a real doozy of a thunderstorm last night, most entertaining!

    Much improved this morning. No cloud, quite warm (15C at the moment). Forecast says bright, sunny and warmer for next four days or so. Watering can will be overworked!
