  1. Balvenie is generally a mellow option also. I have the dregs of a bottle of Port Wood bought when it was a lot cheaper than it would be now even if it was generally available, but the Double Wood is quite nice too.

    Or completely left field, try Starward Nova all the way from Melbourne but at a fairly reasonable price.

  2. Ice is definitely frowned upon by the purists.  Try water, up to about 20% of the neat measure, makes it "more open, but less intense", so they say.

    If you're looking for something with a bit of mellowness, try Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or or Quinta Ruban, or perhaps Middleton Method and Madness if you want to go west rather than east.

    The points 1,2,3 & 4, you carefully edited out of my quote make the scenario on pprune impossible. 

    I don’t have to propose alternatives. I’m not in the know.

    Sorry John, I've obviously touched a nerve.  I shall leave you to your speculation.

    I presume the idea is that by dropping APD on domestic flights, the airlines will be able to raise their fares by a similar amount.  It's certainly something where the spin seems to be coming from the government rather than the airline or the BBC because the Guardian has a similar story where the two element (the delay for Flybe and the reduction) seem to be confused in the same way.   Presumably neither Government spin doctors nor the media really know what they are talking about.

    Don't know where the "£100m tax bill" comes from, further conflation of various issues, possibly.

    If APD is ditched, it will apply to all domestic carriers.  If they all then increase their prices by £13 per sector, would that count as price fixing?

    If flybe get this concession to keep them in the air and don't have to pay the APD for a bit, why should we? 

    It will still be due, if I understand correctly, just deferred - think they were originally looking for a "payment holiday"?

    I note the BBC is talking about a cut in APD, not sure how that would help Flybe.

    'Flymaybe' is used by people who think they have discovered a lovely little wittyism and when it is delayed (due to weather/volcanoes or whatever) they can stand at the Arrivals area spouting it. It's very funny.
