Normally the Bible too.


I assume it’s the ‘Whisky Bible’ or do you have an extensive collection of religious reading material and if so does it extend to other faith groups?

I do drop hints but Mrs Barleycorn never seems to take any notice of them. Last year I kept harping on about the Bugatti Veyron, but alas it was socks again.

Cheers John

Mrs B was very generous with her whisky related gifts, a nosing aroma kit and bottle of Singleton of Dufftown. Also received Ian Buxton's Book from one of the wee Barleycorn's :D :D :D :thumbsup:

Got a Macallan 12 (sherry) that came packaged with a Macallan 18 miniature from Costco. Told my fiancee that I wanted that for Christmas since it wasn't too expensive.

Didn't get it, got this instead.

Mrs DT gave me three gift boxes each slightly bigger than the other
First had a voucher for return flights to Sydney
Second had a voucher for 2 nights at the Parkroyal Sydney in a Harbour view room
Third had a voucher for a Supercar drive day whilst in Sydney with 3 course lunch
Cars I get to drive include.........
Lamborghini Gallardo
Aston Martin Vantage Cabriolet
Bentley Continental Cabriolet
Lotus Elise Club Racer
Mercedes AMG E63
Ferrari California
:D :D :D

She's definitely a keeper :thumbsup:
