    Aldi were briefly out of their £7.99 Cairanne Cotes Du Rhone Villages, so I took a punt on their £9.99 Chateauneuf du Pape 2016 - they want nearly £15 for the 2015 .. (as an Atheist I do enjoy the irony :D )

    Very pleasant from day 1 and moderately characterful - with a fair bit of heady sherry/Portiness .. and the bottle of Cairanne that followed it seemed a bit OTT in comparison - though it should tone down after a few days ...

    Currently, Cornish Orchards vintage still cider (7.2%).
    Later I may sample the Barcelo Gran Reserva rum my younger brother and his family sent me for Christmas. It smells gorgeous!

    I do like elderflower drinks - we have made elderflower cordial the last couple of years and it is excellent in a G&T.

    I'm just polishing off some cheap Brandy at the moment though. :(

    Your post must have been stuck in some temporal queue. :hmm:

    Don't think I've ever had limoncello - might have to buy some to try it with G & T. How much do you add?
