Don't really get on with wine as I sup it at the same rate as ale. Same with spirits. Double scotch looks like a dirty glass...

Never had this one.  Is it a sweetish viognier?  Or just strong and off dry?

Eating tofu and hating it.

The latter. Not bad for aftertaste either (by that I mean your gob the next day when you've done three of them).

You mention aftertaste. Brought a few cigars back from Cuba and it was like someone had shat in my mouth after smoking one, for days after. Thought they were meant to be the bees knees or whatever. Proper stuff from the factory.

Well it was only half a bottle. But the Old Speckled hen before it and the prosecco after it probably didn't help.
