    #9 Yes I have had roo fillet really good, reminded me of Venison similar to Ostrich nice and lean. They often turn up in the Deli section of Supermarkets. To be honest if and when we buy them it is curiosity more than any other reason , but that is the foodie in me. Had Crocodile, rather have chicken , Pheasant can be disappointing get tired of chewing lead lol. Snails (l'escargot) okay but I would not go to my grave an unhappy man if I never had another one, Frogs legs like skinny chicken.
    The older I get the less I eat (not before time) but Red meat is all but off the menu now. I love my seafood but do eat to much shell fish.
    I think the likes of Tassie Whiskey & Gin may struggle to get a foot hold into the UK market, Especially Gin as everyone and her mother is producing flavoured gins by the barrel. Aussie wine has been doing well for years, even in the EU markets but since we came back from France if we buy wines it is usually Australian, South African , Chile or New Zealand, rarely EU wines now. One thing that does annoy me here in Northern Ireland is why Scotch whisky is usually cheaper than Bushmills or Coleraine , probably because Scotch is inferior. I can understand Irish whiskey being a bit more expensive as it is classed as an EU imported product but as said, Irish whiskies, North or South are better quality than our Scottish cousins.

    Lewis, you trying to start another stooshie (LOL), comparing the Irish firewater with Scotland's finest.
    Look at the range on offer, Lowland blended whisky.
    Island Malts, with their unique peaty flavour, nothing comparable elsewhere.
    Speyside Malts, with their smooth and refined taste.
    Highland Malts with crafted with skill to produce goods that cannot be replicated.
    Lewis and you compare your firewater with the ranges on offer from Scotland.

    Fire water tut tut!! Vic, Irish is as smooth as silk most are Triple distilled. Not keen on peaty whiskies whisky.jpg
    Will admit there are a few scotch blends I am happy to sample Ballantines I enjoy, Johnny Walker is awful,

    Stooshie , never heard that word before, but me, never, disruption caused by a disagreement or misunderstanding quotations had to google it . Cracking word must remember that one it's a cracker

    But to take any notice of the French is like trying to stop the rain, it will not happen.

    Poor bugger has to now do two weeks quarantine when he returns.
    Should have twelve months isolation.

    Australia is not part of the Seven, but Scomo had to try and get his beak in there, got stiffed and his plane was diverted as he was a no no, so sulking he spent most of his time in Cornwall looking for his ancestors in a cemetery. He then went to see Macron in France to see how his $50 billion submarines was going, due i think in around 2050, they will go with the $Billions they paid for the unflyable planes from the US.
    Scomo is personally responsible for the loss of the wine trade the barley and meat trade with China, his trade minister was to up himself to be accepted, and yet one of our biggest Billionaires gets on OK with the Chinese importers of Iron ore, it brings in around $60 billion a year, thank god.
