You are right, you can still find it at a few places online, but the cost is now 2X what is what is should be for that cologne. I have wandered over to a forum called "basenotes" which is focused on colognes. Wow, people get just as obsessed with colognes as we do with shaving. Go figure! :P At base...

All I can say is that I have ordered many Merkur razors for a fraction of the price and I have never once had a problem with quality. :?

The blade that my wife shaved her legs with and didn't bother telling me. :lol:

I agree. Col. Conk has a great smell, mediocre performance.
The only other almonds I have tried is TOBS and Volabra and out of those Volabra is my fav.

Trying Sherry is on my "to do" list. I recently tried white port and I am not a fan.

I have not tried any Australian tawny port, I'll have to ask around and try to find some.
Warre's Optima 10 year was very good.
The oldest tawny I have tried is 20 year. But I plan to buy a bottle of Taylor Fladgate 40, for my 40th birthday. :P

Tawny Port

Any other tawny port lovers here? :D
I have tried to convert some of my friends but they all complain it tastes like cough syrup...
So far I have to say my favorite brand is Taylor Fladgate.
