As we lived it up in a Leith mansion, we popped over to the SMWS for a couple of cask strengthers - which'll come out on top?

Smells
Were down on the farm and we are smoking everything from cheese and tofu to pigs ears and sausage. And not just any farm: its a kinky farm with the condoms stacked up on the fetish tractor. But who needs any of that when we can have Bacon Frazzles?
Tastes
Still plenty of meaty products on show with chorizo and crispy bacon but something seems to have gone wrong with the kinky tractor - theres engine oil everywhere. Call the mechanic tell him to bring his rag.


  This one threw many of us on the guessing game - a peaty bolt from the vaults.
