SlickTiger Industries Presents: DIVE-BAR GAME REVIEWS

DBGR Ep1I was wading through my Slicky-T fanmail the other day when I stumbled on this intriguing mail from a total badass I used to know from way back.

The long and the short of it is that this total badass (we’ll just call him the TBA for brevity’s sake) now works for Megarom and asked me if I want to review games for the site to which I of course replied “HELL YEAH!”

Which in retrospect might have been a bit hasty seeing as I don’t have a console or a gaming rig that can handle anything more intense than The Sims.

Still though, it didn’t feel right passing up an opportunity to develop a relationship that could one day prove mutually beneficial when I get my shit together and actually buy a console so I told the TBA to send away and I’d figure out a way to give him some love on the site.

Fast forward to later that same day and I’m indulging in my favourite passtime with some buddies (getting drunk and playing pool badly in a dive-bar) when all of a sudden this genius idea strikes me.

My buddies have consoles! They can play the games and all I have to do is interview them about what the games were like, film it, put it on my site and KAPOW! Everyone’s a winner!

And so DIVE-BAR GAME REVIEWS was born in an alcohol-fuelled moment of pure inspiration.

So kick back, pour a whisky, relax and dig Episode 1 where my buddy Graumpot and I chat about Sleeping Dogs.



So yeah. Hope you guys enjoyed our first attempt at a Dive-Bar Game Review. Sure, it’s a little rough around the edges, it’s a little gritty, it’s a little grimy, it could use some colour-grading but it’s one of the few video projects I’ve worked on where, even after sinking about 100 hours into it, watching it doesn’t make me start twitching involuntarily.

Huge thanks to Graum and Blomdog who did me a solid on this considering our production budget was exactly R0.00.

Also a huge thanks to my long-suffering girlfriend J-Rab who spent many a boring night chilling solo in the flat while I cut this badboy up with Blomdog until the early hours.

Feel free to comment on what you thought of our review, but only say good stuff ok? Anyone trolls this I swear to God I will weep like a little girl after the hours I spent sweating blood to make this happen.

Have a killer weekend party people!

Catch ya’ll next week Winking smile



And the Winner Of The Tsogo Sun Competition Iiiiiiiisssssss…

JudithKeppel2Please believe me when I say this decision was not an easy one. There were at least three entries that made me actually laugh out loud, but sadly there can be only one winner.

At first I thought I’d chased potential entrants away by asking people to write a “well written” and funny sentence explaining why they need a holiday.

Over the course of the day entries did start to come through though, some more awesome than others, so before I announce the winner, I thought I’d give some props to the entries that came close.

Master Bates’ entry would definitely have won hands down if this was a “who can tell the sickest joke” competition, so thanks for that one, I’ll be sure to use it at the next dinner party I go to.



Cubicled Chris also got a chuckle out of me with his pants-shitting shenanigans, as did Keenan Harduth with his sneaky tale of a dropped ice cream (I see what you did there Keenan and I approve).

Lastly Tim, you killed me dude. It would have been you hands down if I was judging this on humour alone, but unfortunately it also had to explain why you need a holiday, which unfortunately yours failed to do.

So with no further ado, please join me in congratulating the winner of the Tsogo Sun weekend getaway competition, “Soon to be unemployed” whose entry read as follows:


A mail to all the boys has just been sent to All staff and now all the staff know that I like blondes, nipple clamps and chimpanzees


You had me at blondes and nipple clamps, but chimpanzees?! Wow dude, you need a holiday BADLY!

Expect a mail from your Tiger pal soon to sort you out with a prize, congrats!

The rest of you, the good news is that the Tsogo Sun Sunbreaks Summer Sale is still on until 8pm tonight so jump in there, you can still get 25% off the holidays listed there.

Let the summery good times roll Winking smile



Slicky-T Gets NAILED By The Mother Of All Comment-Spam

Spam-CanComment-spam is definitely one of the more intriguing forms of spam out there. It almost always comes in the form of grammatically horrendous flattery that has absolutely nothing to do with what you’ve posted.

I’m not even sure how it’s supposed to work. Even when I was a blogger-newbie desperate for comments I knew better than to approve that shite.

I wish I could though, because holy shit, the stuff I get sometimes is so hilariously random I know you guys would get a kick out of it. Case in point: the MOTHER of all comment-spam that hit my site last week.

I’m guessing there are comment-spam bots out there that send out spiders to search websites for certain keywords and then try to match a spam comment to the post from a gigantic database of pre-written comment-spam.

How do I know the database is gigantic? I know this because my post about Matthew Mole winning the “Get Out Of The Garage” Competition was hit by no less than 45 spam comment permutations in one go.



The first couple are pretty normal, as you will see from samples 1 through 5 below:

Hi, just wanted to tell you, I enjoyed this blog post. It was funny. Keep on posting!
Hi, I just wanted to tell you, you’re dead wrong. Your article doesn’t make any sense.
Hello, how’s it going? Just shared this post with a colleague, we had a good laugh.
Incredible points. Sound arguments. Keep up the great work.
This text is worth everyone’s attention. How can I find out more?

The next couple of comments follow a similar format, but then after that shit just starts getting plain fucking weird.

It’s like the robot who wrote the first few comments drank a shot of rubbing alcohol and banged out the following:


Hi to every single one, it’s truly a good for me to visit this web page, it includes helpful Information.
I am truly pleased to read this website posts which carries lots of helpful data, thanks for providing these kinds of statistics.
This video post is actually great, the noise quality and the picture quality of this tape post is genuinely amazing.
I all the time emailed this website post page to all my friends, because if like to read it then my friends will too.
Your method of explaining the whole thing in this post is in fact pleasant, every one be capable of effortlessly be aware of it, Thanks a lot.
Fine way of telling, and pleasant article to obtain facts about my presentation focus, which i am going to present in institution of higher education.


“Which i am going to present in institute of higher education” – whatever robot, what the hell are you doing writing this shit, aren’t you supposed to be vacuuming the lounge?



Predictably, things get even better from there when the robot downs the entire bottle of rubbing alcohol.

Hi there to every body, it’s my first go to see of this web site; this weblog consists of awesome and in fact good stuff for visitors.
Hurrah, that’s what I was exploring for, what a stuff! existing here at this blog, thanks admin of this web site.
What’s up, every time i used to check blog posts here in the early hours in the break of day, for the reason that i enjoy to gain knowledge of more and more.
What’s up to every one, as I am in fact eager of reading this web site’s post to be updated regularly. It includes nice stuff.
Hi all, here every person is sharing these kinds of know-how, so it’s nice to read this website, and I used to go to see this blog daily.
Sketches are in fact pleasant source of teaching instead of content, its my familiarity, what would you say?
Hello, the whole thing is going fine here and ofcourse every one is sharing data, that’s in fact fine, keep up writing.
Hi there to every one, the contents present at this web page are actually amazing for people knowledge, well, keep up the good work fellows.
No matter if some one searches for his vital thing, thus he/she desires to be available that in detail, thus that thing is maintained over here.

And there I was, terrified at the thought of robots taking over the world, what the hell was I thinking? That shit’s going to be hilarious!



Happy Thursday folks, before you know it the weekend will be upon us and we can like to desire with great happiness for sharing alcohol in amounts vast while congratulations ourselves for incredible work fellows!



Win A Weekend Getaway Courtesy Of Tsogo Sun And Your Tiger Pal

TsogoSale1 - 800px wideThe competitions are coming in thick and fast on TFW these days folks which means I can finally reward my loyal readers with some boodle.

That’s right, boodle. I chose that word carefully to invoke piratey scenes of golden rolling dunes, blue skies, turquoise oceans and rum because if you play your cards right, that’s exactly what you’ll win.

See, my new buddies over at Tsogo Sun have officially launched a summer sale where you can save 25% on a holiday at one of their hotels in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal or the Western Cape, but you gotta move fast, the offer closes tomorrow at 8pm!

Alternatively, you could just win a weekend getaway for two at one of the hotels listed in the link above by doing something I like to call “writing well”.



“Writing well” is not as easy as it looks on this site. Sure most people have a keyboard and can push the buttons on it, but can they push those buttons in exactly the right order to create something meaningful? Something that could win them the free weekend of a LIFETIME?!

Only one way to find out…

The rules are simple. Write me one sentence in the comments section below telling me why you need a holiday.

And please don’t give me a bleeding-heart story about some depressing tragedy you’ve endured that somehow qualifies you for a holiday.



This is not a soap opera, it’s a blog site for people with a sense of humour.

So the golden rule applies, make me laugh and you’re in with a fighting chance, capiche?

One sentence explaining why you need a holiday that is funny (the sentence, not the holiday).

If you feel your first attempt is rubbish, you are more than welcome to enter more than once, but try to cap it at 5 entries or you’ll start looking desperate and the other kids on the site will laugh at you.

Entries will close at 5pm and a winner will be announced tomorrow at 9am.

Here’s the small print in bolded writing:

Ts and Cs

The prize is subject to the following terms and conditions:

  • Your prize is valid until 07 January 2013. The accommodation must be taken up within this period, as the expiry date will not be extended.
  • Your prize is not transferable, may not be converted to cash and, if lost, will not be re-issued by Tsogo Sun hotels.
  • You may take advantage of your prize at any time, subject to availability, convenient to yourself and to the hotel as specified above, with the exception of school holidays, public holidays and certain other peak periods that may be identified by the hotel.
  • To redeem your prize, please contact our Customer Contact Centre in Johannesburg on telephone number 0861 44 77 44 and the Reservations agent will make the booking on your behalf.  Please note that you will be required to fax a copy of this letter to the Reservations agent to secure your booking.
  • You will be required to produce this original prize letter on check in at the hotel – no copies will be accepted.


Do me proud ya buncha flippin maniacs.

Do me proud.



Project Whisk(e)y: The Tiger Hits Up An Aficionados Whisky Tasting

WP_000077Aficionados is a local online whisky store that sells a lot of well-priced and rare whiskies. I joined their mailing list recently when I bought a bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask from the site (very awesome whisky).

They sent an invite to attend a chocolate and whisky pairing at The Wild Fig so for the sake of Project Whisk(e)y I went to check it out.

I approached the evening with the highest level of professionalism and took detailed notes which, after my third whisky, rapidly started to degenerate into something closely resembling the ramblings of a village drunk.

The evening kicked off at about 6.30 and we tasted five different whiskies, not one of which I’d tasted before and some of which I’d never even heard of. I was more focussed on the whisky than the chocolate so you’ll have to forgive my lack of chocolaty detail below.

I felt a bit of trepidation going to the tasting solo, but soon made friends with a group of young-looking people who kindly let me sit at their table so that I could steal all the flavour notes they were picking up in the different whiskies we were tasting and pretend that I’d thought them all up myself.

So with no further ado, here are the whiskies we tasted and the notes I wrote down about each one, verbatim:


balblair-2000-bigWhisky No.1 – Balblair 2000 Vintage

“Balblair 2000 vintage, alone its kinda insipid. Very subtle sweeter notes, American white oak, very light in colour, slight alcohol burn dominating the flavours. With the choccie, a sharper taste, didn’t really make the sweeter notes pop. Beginners might like this wizzo, personally I found it lacking in flavour. Sugary like white sugar.”

The tasting notes say it all really. The Balblair didn’t blow my hair back in any way.

The flavour notes I was picking up were so subtle, the alcohol burn almost overpowered them and even that was mild. Nice bottle though so yeah… it has one redeeming feature at least.

Moving on, the next whisky we tasted was:


1328552495_311454107_2-Pictures-of--Isle-of-Jura-Limited-Edition-17-Yr-Single-Malt-WhiskyWhisky No.2 – Jura 17 Year Old

“Second one 17 year old Jura. Maritime influence, peat is different at the coast. Single barrel distilled in 1993, from bourbon to port pipe, extra matured because two different woods. Still single malt. Seven years in a port pipe.

Sweet cherry smell, nice maltiness, complex. Slight medicinal tones, 56% ABV, nice burn, not overpowering, more character than first one. Cherry chocolate brings cherry flavours to the fore, creates a much creamier finish.

Nice maltiness, darker colour. Bit of marzipan in the chocolate. Long cherry finish.”

Which is the long way around of saying the Jura 17 Year Old was a much more characterful whisky than the Balblair. It’s also pretty damn rare which is why I’ve had to use that crusty picture above, it’s literally the only one I could find of the bottle after trawling Google Image Search for a good 20mins.

Also, the fact that this whisky was finished in port pipes gives it a nice, dark amber colour and delicious spiciness that made it a winner in my books.

Next up:


IMG_5602Whisky no. 3 – Drayman’s Single Highveld Malt:

“There are only 3 SA whisky distilleries, Distel distillery in Wellington (3 Ships, Bain’s) a distillery that makes Wild Reeds Whisky (African shaped bottle) and Draymans is the 3rd. Beer makers end up making whisky. Low wines is the first distillation.

Drayman’s in matured in French oak. White oak vanilla flavours, American oak.

European oak rich fruity flavours. French oak quite spicy, not great for scotch. Rich dark chocolately flavours, digestive biscuit, almost eucalypsy notes, fresh spiciness, some richer fruit, mint? Surprisingly delicious. Cinnamon and orange chocolate enhances the spiciness.”

This South African “Highveld Malt” was my favourite whisky of the evening.

Whisky is mainly matured in either American or Spanish / European oak casks with a very small amount being matured in French oak casks.

Drayman’s is matured in French oak and wow, it tastes like no whisky I’ve ever encountered.

If you’re looking for something that is guaranteed to throw you a massive curveball that you’ll either love or hate, pick up a bottle of Drayman’s Single Highveld Malt from the Aficionados site here for R455, in my humble opinion, it’s worth every cent.


glenmorangie_quinta_rubanWhisky no.4 – Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

“Glenmorangie quinta ruban. Process similar to Jura, bourbon cask for 10 years two years in a port pipe. Ruby is Ruban. Pinkish tinge from port, nose very subtle, lighter, sweeter notes almost no smoke or peat, coconut on the nose. 46% ABV. Tastes like, umm… umm… umm tastes like… WINNING!

more Snacks! YAY! wonder how many I can SMASH IN MY FACE BEFORE I BECOME THAT GUY…

Huh. As we can see from those highly detailed notes, by this stage I was starting to lose a bit of focus. Still though, the Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban was a great whisky, also finished in port pipes, hence its ruby colour.

This was many people’s favourite whisky of the night, which made me want to stab them with a fork because DRAYMAN’s WAS THE BEST DAMNIT!

Anyway, moving on, the last whisky was:

Whisky No.5 – Glendronach 15 year old Revival

“Glendeonach one third owned by a saffa. 15 year old. Light toffee on the nose. Sherry finish. 12, 15 and 18. 15 called revival.

Very common scotch style until 15 20 years ago, dried frutoness, actual taste is richly complex, lovely long finish, coffee notes, chocolate didn’t pair so well with choccie, nice. I want to soak my loins in it.

Got more draymans single highveld malt unbelievablely new woody taste. Like fresh sap. Iys charming as fuck. Christ south Africans are badass. nkozzi sikhelelele awww yeeaahhhh”

Yep. Like I said, the ramblings of a village drunk. Good thing we stuck with 5 whiskies and called it a night.

And no, in case you were wandering, I did not drive myself home that night.

I did the smart thing and took a cab because 5 whiskies will push you over the limit, no doubt about that. Just ask my taxi driver about the rousing rendition of “Come On Eileen” I belted out all the way back to Vredehoek and he’ll tell you straight.

So yeah, next time one of these tastings is going down, I’ll be sure to let you crazy kids know and we can hold hands and go together.

Good times I tell ya, good times Winking smile



Pole Dancing fails – brace yourselves

pole-dancing-failWhoever invented pole dancing must have been pretty sick and tired of supporting a family of four on her check-out girl salary to have risked breaking her neck for a few twenties in her g-string.

Sound dramatic? Just wait till you see this epic collection of pole dancing fails and I think you’ll understand just how life-threatening this shit can be.

Some of these girls are clearly pros who just happen to be the victims of incredibly bad luck but as for the others all I can say is wow. For the love of everything holy step AWAY from the pole.

Dig it:



Best part is the girl who starts moering what looks like her pole dancing instructor only to get moered right back.




Rocking The Daisies Must-See Bands (Part 2)

KongosNow that I’ve recovered from the “IDFFLT” state that I found myself in last week, it’s time to get things back on track with my second Rocking The Daisies Must-See Bands post.

Originally I was going to break this festival down stage by stage until I realised how much work that would be on my part.

Instead, I decided to go day by day rather, a much less painful option.

So the first post pretty much covers everything for Thursday as there’s only going to be one stage up and running. Come Friday however, the festival will start coming alive and when it does, these are the bands you need to check out.

One more disclaimer before I start though – all the bands I’m recommending are playing on the main stage.

Yes, I know how lame that is, most people will just go to the main stage by default so I probably don’t need to big up any of the bands playing there, but holyfuckingshit, I’m writing this post on a machine that crawls like a goddamned dying snail, it’s already taken me THREE FUCKING HOURS just to find the videos below.



As much as I’d love to give other bands and artists from the Beach Bar Stage, the Nu World Beat Barn and the Electro Stage some love, that will literally take me another ten hours at the very least.

If ANYONE reading this knows other sick bands and artists performing on the Friday, drop a video link in the comments section below and if I get enough, I’ll write a follow-up post to this one.

Moving on, Friday kicks off at 1pm on the main stage with the Black Handed Kites. This band will make for a perfect, chilled start to the day with their acoustic guitar / banjo folky vibes. Check out their video for “Up”.



The next band I’d keep an eye out for on the main stage is Beatenberg, who are stepping up to do their thang at 3.10pm.

They’ve got a nice acoustic pop vibe, easy listening kinda stuffs to zone out to and get lost in. Really liked the sound of their track “Scorpionfish”, check it:



Anyone planning to indulge in some shrooms or anything else of a hallucinogenic nature should probably give the main stage a wide berth at around 5.20pm when The Brother Moves On take to the stage.

Or not. Depending on what you can handle…

These guys are like the Mars Volta of African music. Massively experimental, they won’t be everyone’s cuppa tea but I’ll definitely make an effort to see these guys. Should be pretty entertaining to watch if nothing else.



Of all the bands playing the main stage on the Friday, the first one to really make me sit up and listen when I was researching this piece was Machineri, who are up at 6.25pm.

From the couple of tracks of theirs I’ve managed to dig up, I like what I’m hearing. The guitarist Andre Geldenhuys is on a whole other level and the vocalist Sannie Fox has a Jefferson Airplane / Janis Joplin vocal tone that is all kinds of sexy.



Once Machineri have melted a few faces, I’d strongly recommend EVERYONE AT THE FESTIVAL heads to the Lemon Tree Theatre to watch Dylan Skews do the funniest stand-up you’re likely to see the entire weekend.

I watched this man at Synergy and literally cried laughing. Here’s a clip I dug up of some of his material from last year:



After that, I’d grab a bite to eat, smash a few tequilas and get ready for Friday’s big acts, starting with Isochronous, (who recently shortened their name to ISO), who are up at 9.40pm.

They wrote a pretty mesmerising, almost ethereal kind of indie which balances nicely with the Ben Gibbard / Death Cab For Cutie vocals.

Here’s a taste:



Last up is a band that I will personally kick you in the shin if you even think about missing.

Kongos are up at 11pm and they are going to blow everyone the fuck away. You can pretty much take that to the bank.

Here’s their video for “I’m Only Joking” if you don’t believe me.



Love those Queens Of The Stone Age / robot rock vibes. That relentless, driving bassline sounds like something stolen straight from Song For The Deaf, beyatiful.

If you’ve still got any strength left in you after that, I think it’ll be worth staying to watch BEAST, Inge Bergman’s new band.

I loved Lark, so even though I haven’t been able to find any of BEAST’s material to show you guys, I have high hopes for this band.

So that’s Friday for ya, anyone have any other suggestions of bands to watch, don’t be shy Winking smile



Escape Monday: FREEDOM!

joshadamski01Guys, we’ve done it. We have escaped Monday at long last and are finally free to do whatever the hell we want ALL DAY!

That’s right, it’s Heritage Day here in the good ol’ S of A, which means we can kick back, chill to the max and all braai the shit out of shit in an effort to celebrate what makes South Africans South African.

Ironically, I’ll be spending most of today working. That’s the double-edged sword that is public holidays – as awesome as they are, you lose a day of productivity which I can’t afford right now. These images from Josh Adamski are making that reality a little easier to bear though.

Check it:








Adamski created these pics by taking normal photos of sunsets and digitally manipulating them to make it look like the images have been painted. You need to check out this man’s 500 px site, his work is seriously amazing.

The third one down is my favourite, makes me want to drink whisky Winking smile

Enjoy the public holiday party people, go eat a hunk of delicious charred meat for your Tiger pal.



I Don’t Fucking Feel Like This Right Now

fuck itIt’s not often that I pull the “I don’t fucking feel like this right now” card, but I think after posting nearly every week day, sometimes more than once, whilst holding down a full-time day job, I’m entitled to just say “Fuck It” once in awhile.

I’ve gone through so many different phases during the three years I’ve been doing this it’s fucking insane.

I’ve been constantly testing the waters, feeling this shit out, experimenting with different kinds of content, “do they like it? Is it relevant? Does this make me sound like an assehole?” that sometimes I clean forget the original reason I started this site: To have fun.

And mostly it is fun. I mean christ, I love the shit out of this site. It’s the one only creative project that I’ve ever managed to stick with and see through the good times and the bad because I can do this without relying on anyone but myself.

It’s taught me more than I could ever put into words but even so, sometimes I just don’t fucking feel like it.

So to my regular readers, please forgive me for being a lazy jerk. As I write this, it’s nearly 11pm on Thursday night, I’m tired, half-drunk on whisky and want nothing more right now than to take my woman in my arms, breathe her delicious warm, sleepy scent in and go the fuck to sleep.

But you bet your ass I’ll be back next week, doing what Tigers do best because I love this site, I love my readers, and as long as there is breath in me I’ll continue to bang this shit out because even if it makes one person smile, I’ll rest happy knowing I’ve made this world a better place.

Your Tiger pal,



Project Whisk(e)y: Johnnie Walker Platinum Launches

johnnie_walker_platinum_18Ahh, Johnnie Walker my old friend. I’ve been meaning to get round to doing a tasting on this site of one of my favourites from the House Of Walker, Johnnie Walker Double Black, but looks like that’s gonna have to wait.

As of last week, Johnnie Walker has officially introduced a new variant, Johnnie Walker Platinum which, judging from its price point, now sits just beneath Blue Label in the Walker range.

To launch this very sexy-looking 18 year old blended whisky, Johnnie Walker have opened what they’re calling the “One Bottle” liquor store in Melrose Arch, where people can bid for the first bottle of Platinum to land on SA shores.

You can either bid at the store itself, or online at with all the proceeds going to the non-profit organisation, South Africans Against Drunk Driving.

Bidding closes next week Friday though so you better get on that – the highest confirmed bid at the moment is R125k which is not too shabby at all.



The bottle is signed by the Master Blender himself (ie. the guy who created the blend) which, along with the fact that it’s the first bottle in SA, makes it basically priceless.

Platinum Label has an interesting story behind it – apparently the Walker family established a tradition back in the 1800s where private blends were crafted for favoured customers, directors of the company and private gatherings.

This inspired Johnnie Walker’s Master Blender, a man who goes by the name of Jim Beveridge (too perfect!), to create a whisky ideally suited for exclusive and intimate gatherings.



Jimbo himself says it best:

This is an intense, smooth and contemporary blend, crafted from some of our most treasured whiskies, for those who know what they want in life – especially from their whiskies. Like the rare and precious metal after which it is named, Johnnie Walker Platinum Label is rich and refined – delivering the distinctive depth and complexity that is synonymous with Johnnie Walker. In fact, I believe that if John Walker were to create a Whisky today, Johnnie Walker Platinum Label would be the result.

I won’t lie, given a slight pay raise, a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label would have a permanent place in my liquor cabinet because all marketing fluff aside, it is arguably the best blended scotch whisky in the world.

Some insider info you might want to share the next time you order a dram and someone gives you a snobby look and tells you Johnnie Black is overrated – other Master Blenders the world over have a grudging respect for Johnnie Walker Black Label because it is one of the most perfectly balanced whiskies you will ever taste.

It is the stick in the sand by which countless other Master Blenders gauge whether their product is worth a damn and as it currently stands, it is the world’s best selling deluxe blended scotch whisky.

Which has almost nothing to do with Platinum Label other than the fact that I do love me some Johnnie Walker (especially Gold Label served from an ice-caked bottle and paired with dark chocolate or Blue Label neat as it comes in a tumbler, no ice, no water) so I am beyond intrigued to taste what the Platinum is like.



Don’t hold your breath for a review though. They save that stuff for legitimate whisky writers (ie. boring old farts) so the closest I’ll probably ever come to tasting it is licking the picture of the bottle I posted above.

Feel free to join me if the R1000 price tag is out of your league too.

Who knows though… got a birthday coming up, maybe a wealthy, kind-hearted reader will hook a brother up.

A man can dream Winking smile
