70 Euro a shot for Grappa ?
not mistaken with louis XIV?

Funy thing grappa I have tried same 70 volumes a friend made on his still. Clear as water and melow on palate I could realy feel the texture of the grape pips between my teeth (no you doddo no grape pips on it as was clear as water Just the feel of it)then big badabang when it gets to botom absolutley fantastic but he only does (used to)10 botles a year.Lests see about 1984 in Udine army district he was from Val D'Aosta so it was prety good for me to remember that far back

If you can get it look for Nardini (I like the yelow ish one melow compared to clear one)

any way funny thing of grappa one is totaly sober while having first second and third
shot glass after decent meal and normaly conversation will start and continue at least till there is enoug grappa left on the table with warious degrees of arm flapping about till one for same reasons decide to get up and the is hey TIMBER.
Wake up in the morow and do not rememeber a thing
Even funnier witnesing this as a chain reaction...
One goes up and hey Timber 2 go up to help one and hey Timber 3 go up to help one and 2 and is tre on the deck normaly the rest of the table stay put and carries on drinking.

Don't know much about black economy stereo Speakers where normaly Italian and all the best gear came from the UK at the time but I was out of that loop as I had a 32Kw electrovoice system to play with at the time

Hey Vat69 is blend no single malt by the way

As they were some of the friendliest, generous, welcoming people I have met I feel that it would be a big lack of gratitude to plaster their names over the WEB. However, I will try to write something over the next few days which may just give some idea of their great joy of life, music, and manic pursuit of having the best of equipment on which to play it.

I will have to disguise their names, and attempt to leave no strong recognition points.

Expect something in a few days.

Can you remove the thumbnail? It would please me if you can.

Thanks ZM.

I know. Need to get back to speaks. Busy with amps. LOve movies and their ability to convey a message. Books the same. It's a beautiful life.

You can remove my thumbnails any beautiful day. I wont reveale ****. Anyway I just had a thing going under single malts called B.N.J. No tar, mildely smokey, still highland springwater taste. What a crap, bring me back some Arbeg 16.

Any winter still? Here is minus 2 and the father of all lost kids just putted his skies in the weather. Anders Carlberg, the converter of skins and the builder of bridges between suburb gangs in the famous "fridge house" passed away. Cya on the barricades Anders, RIP until.

Best
Staffan
