Just finished making some welshcakes for the meet in Shrewsbury this weekend. Get your tickets now, its not quite too late ! Hope 5 doz will be enough ! Anyway, I moisten the currants in a little brandy, finished the bottle of cooking brandy today. Looked at the label, it was a half bottle of spanish brandy Carlos I, i like hot brandies. The price tag said 1495 Pts. Given that the Euro launched (or started its slow sink) in 1995 that means the bottle is over 15 years old, more likely nearer to 20years. So what you got lurking at the back of the 'booze' cupboard you once loved now have forgoten about ? Peter PS also got the remains of a bottle of Bacardi I bought in 1973 ! Does it improve?
