Now there is the matter of the bottle of Grouse that was presented to Xavier, I guess I will get that half when I hand the trophy over to him next March (lol).

TIP OF THE DAY
Don’t worry if the outside of the natural bag has some flay or vein marks. This is normal with a natural skin – it is the inside of the bag that counts.
