    And for those who can’t afford the £4 or find a sticky magazine under the bed

    I think my wife would react even worse to finding this magazine under my bed than my porn collection.

    Couldn't get hold of Maynards 40 year old port in my area so picked up this single grain scotch whisky instead of going home empty handed. Not too sure what it will taste like but for £20 it's worth a try.
    Also whilst in town I picked up a copy of Whisky Galore to watch over Christmas. I've only seen the original version which is a great classic to watch.

    Its pretty nice stuff! has not been received quite as well as last years 28 amongst some, for me personally I prefer it to the 28..The 26 year old Irish is is good, interesting fruity taste to that one. Settled on 17 bottles this year
    Bargains both of them at £39.99

    One of my local Aldi stores has the Glen Marnoch 29 year old in stock so I picked one up today. They had them locked away as I had to ask a member of staff to get one out of storage. I think it's to deter theft as last years offer were left near the entrance.
    Yesterday I went there to see if they were in stock but I ended up also checking Lidl as I keep getting confused with both store names mistaking one for the other

    Have yet to sell any but have not drank much at all:)
    Not sure how many bottles I have but its around the 70 level now,  when I hit 100 il probably start selling some, and people say silver takes up to much space 
    Some nice profit potential though, selling prices achieved at recent auctions more than what i paid by around 30-50% , take of commision and exspenses and I think a 25% profit is fairly conservative.

    Lower ABV than last years glen marnoch 28, but looks interesting and for the price there is nowhere else you can get ages close to that:) I have ordered 10 bottle of the 29 online and hope to pick up some of the 26 year old Irish in store.
    Ahh fair enough, Nice selection though:)

    Haha! well I must be honest, I did open a bottle of the Ben bracken 27yr tonight, strictly for research purposes though! 
    I really want to go back and grab whats left of the glen alba 22, but the poor missus would have a fit.

    Madstacks got a reaction from ilovesilverireallydo in Midlands Coin Fair to buy bullion gold?   
    I think you might find the odd deal but I doubt much, overheads for dealers selling at coinshows are big, and from their point of view why risk carrying around bullion to make a very small margin. I see no reason why you couldn't find three sovs, and you would see some cool coins. But if you just want bullion HGM or atkinsons is probably a lot easier and probably cheaper.

    Thankfully my wife is quite interested in my coin obsession. Yes, she calls me a geek every time she hears the @BackyardBullion YouTube music but she scoots over and watches the videos with me. 
    Maybe you could pretend to be interested in something she does? I feign interest in my wife's yoga where in reality I am just perving over her yoga pants.

    I’ve been around the Forum for a few weeks now, following various postings, watching videos, buying the odd coin or bar, signing up to all sorts of Bullion sites, scrutinising the rise and fall of spot prices on an hourly basis, learning basic German, keeping an eye on EBay and going quietly fretful and frighteningly obsessive as the days go on. My wife has even begun to use phrases like:
    I don’t know you any more......
    Why do we never eat together? Like we used to.......
    If you mention the words BU, proof or low mintage once more....I won’t be responsible for my actions.....
    I realise this could take over the whole of my life, alter my ability to reason, affect relationships, destroy my bank balance. I need a sound, reasonable strategy to the business of collecting or stacking,  which will be acceptable to a wife who is growing more suspicious and dubious.
    Tell me, those of you who have successfully negotiated this dilemma.....What is your strategy?
