Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey 70 cl
Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey 70 cl
Price: 27.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bourbon, 2 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh yes, smooth, complex flavours, delicious. I have bought more. Not quite as in your face as Knob Creek. Fascinating to compare it with Bulleit Rye, both good but different. You have to try a few whiskeys to begin to really appreciate the differences between the endless variations in grains, countries of origin etc.

This is noe to come back to.

Great shorts just a touch long over the knee for my legs. Good value, plenty of pockets and they don't seem to be fading in the wash as so many dark blue shorts do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 2 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this thinking it was a beard trimmer but nonetheless am pleased with it. The big trimmer copes well with the toughest large beards even though intended for hairstyling. The small one takes an AA battery so is really useful when away from home as well as giving an element of precision to trimming. Good feature of the large one is that it is mains or its rechargeable battery so if it runs out just before you finish you can just plug it in and continue! The length guards are more robust than others I've owned.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very substantial, easy to use piece of kit. It should last forever or until I lose it. Best multi size one I've seen and with loads of family bikes to keep smooth very necessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value bulbs, 13 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why keep on buying these singly when a pack of 10 costs about the same as a 2 bulb blister pack from a local motor factor. Essential if you run more than 1 vehicle these are good quality bulbs at a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job cute leads, 13 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cute little micro usb leads to replace all the ones you lose, tread on, bend etc. Makes it possible to have socket style chargers all over and plenty of leads to go round. We seem to suffer from "borrowers" who make purchases like this essential. The leads themselves are strong and tough as well as being flexible. In the audio world these would be labelled "pro"

4.0 out of 5 stars Typically good Haynes but is mainly about newer machines., 13 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great book typical of the Haynes series with lots of detail. I am however interested in older bikes as well as the newer ones and would have liked to have seen more about the old fashioned bikes - guess it would be an entire volume's worth but I wouyld have given it 5* if it had. I'm ok - old enough to know about shaping cotter pins etc but a new enthusiast would have to look elsewhere.

Great little piece of kit. Perfect for your leisure battery in the camper or caravan to give that little bit more detail than the ubiquitous multi segment LED. Easy to wire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interested in folk clubs and the history of the folk revival? You must read this!, 13 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fascinating book. A must read for anyone who has been involved in the folk music world for more than 15 years or so you will love this. The interviews are thoughtful and revelatory especially about the very earliest days of the folk revival. I can't really think of anyone who has been missed out. The interviews are strung together in what to me seemed a pretty logical way. Inevitably a bit London centric but that is because the origins of the revival were in London. Having discussed this with several other avid readers we had all found different bits of info that we hadn't known.

It would be really interesting to read an updating appendix in 10 years or so.
