    Id start with a bit of water just a splash to take the edge off and "open" the flavours, add one or 2 cubes if needed. I wouldn't put ice in the 18 y/o or much water as you'll dilute the thing, a few drops of water through a straw is all the 18 y/o would need.

    When someone says "open" i think the idea is that you take away some of the alcohol burn that can mask the flavours, it comes from cask strength alcohol which is undiluted. I think they pre dilute blended whisky so its ready to drink, stupid thing is even if they do that cheapo whisky is still like firewater lol.

    It's only because it's the cheapest and easiest to get down here, but still 65% yum yum yum. My mate bought me a little bottle of black cannabis flavoured absinthe from Greece, that was bloody beautiful.
    The water bulks it out so you can drink all night and not got too hammered. With the sugar, you rest a teaspoonful on the rim of the glass and pour the absinthe over so it wets the sugar and the excess drips into the water. Then light the sugar and let it burn for 3 seconds (the absinthe makes it burn with an almost invisible flame so you've got to watch for it) then dunk the spoon in the glass and stir.You know if you burn the sugar for too long because it doesn't taste nice.

    Best tasting drink ever IMO. Me and my brothers snorted absinthe once, I don't recommend it. I'll have to find the video and chuck it on the tube at sometime.

    If you can watch a film called "Liar" (starring Tim Roth - this film is no doubt the reason he was cast for Lie To Me and is bloody epic) he goes through the process on there.

    Oh and I'll PM you my details - I haven't got any mobile credit at the mo so can't text.

    graphic cards, soundcards and whatever items im reluctant to buy from there.

    since Yoyotech have tightened up their purses to regular/repeat customers. epsilon is probably the best place there is that will get you a good deal, but I dont trust them to deal with RMAs as professionally as yoyotech does.

    Yeah you send away a copy of your invoice and mail in form (which you print off) and get the VAT back, considering its 20% VAT it reduces the price a bit.

    I was going to go for this MSI P67A-GD53 (B3) P67 Socket 1155 8 Channel Audio...

    The price with the mail in rebate make them about the same but also get a free game with aria.

    My external 2Tb drive came today (£80 shipped ;) ) so who wants to buy my wd5000aaks 500Gb drives, £70 a piece, fucking bargain considering Ebuyer are selling these drives for £125 :eek: <<< seriously no shit lol

    And yea, I am joking about selling them for £70 lol sarcasm recognition fail :p though if I get £35 + p+p on the bay I will be a happy bunny, not to mention the external enclosure should fetch £15-£20 :toast: opportunism FTW :rockout: :laugh:
