A Christmas Shopping Tip

Post by asthmatic camel »

Don't buy your beloved old Mum a litre of Bell's Whisky as a Christmas Present on the 17th of November because it's £3 off at Asda.

Yah fuckin' whisky snob. It's all poison seasoned with old wood if you're lucky.

Back when I was a publican, a PITA customer named Frank would drink nothing but Bells. One day, I'd run out and he insisted that my barmaid ran down to Sainsbury's to buy a bottle, which she duly did.

The next day, thoroughly pissed off with Frank, as were all the other customers and staff, I set up a blind tasting paid for by myself. 1 shot each of Whyte & McKays, Famous Grouse, Vat 69. Glenmorangie, Teachers, White Horse, Bells and a couple of single malts together with a glass of plain tap water, which I placed at the end of the row..

Frank, blindfolded, tasted each one and firmly declared that the tap water was Bells.

"Nothing tastes as smooth as Bells." Quoth he, much to the merriment of all.

After 8 shots of piss whisky, most people wouldn't remember their own name, let alone what water is.

The base single malt, Blair Athol, is quite good.

Frank worked for the BBC and affected the appropriate accent, (although he was born and bred in Stockport.) One of his most annoying habits was snipping the audio cables when the music didn't suit his taste. He did drink a shit-load of Bells, though. :)
