Duty Free here which is near the airport has two floors of goods they sell almost everything from whisky to T.V.'s fridges and all the other things Duty free have, plus they have two supermarkets one on each floor. You could spend all day there. making me thirsty just thinking about it. :P


WOW! :shock: :D :shock: :thumbsup:

It should be under £60 per month, but I've probably spent over £400 over the last month :shock:

I blame the xmas promotions at the supermarkets (some fantastic deals I just couldn't resist)!!!

Most of all I blame YOU!!!

Haha I am joking, this forum is fantastic but with all the info on promotions, limited editions and single cask offerings its difficult to keep up.

Looking at my finances makes me :cry: but at least I can drown my sorrows :P

Going to London soon as well....

i don't really have a budget , it all depends on whats available , some months it can be zero , the first two weeks in August it can rocket and the last week in May it has been known to go off the Richter Scale !

Not surprised. I thought the festival Bowmore was a wee bit pricey this year.

I never had a budget. I bought what I wanted when I wanted to buy it. Then I ran out of money.

So here I sit on 200+ bottles, and I still look at new ones to buy. But I am in the process of opening more that I buy (at least I try).

My budget is the minimum payment on the Credit Card Bill... :o :dead:

I am building my Whisk(e)y collection rather slowly due to my affinity for cigars and wine. The gas prices aren't helping my already low budget :cry:

Yeah Mac, cigars and wine can take a bite. I know that wine has taken many dollars of my funds away, but maybe not as much as the gas prices...
