    New Sherlock movie starring Gandalf...

    I think Sir Ian McKellen is a good fit for Holme's character. It might be a great movie - certainly closer to the original character than Robert Downie Junior's movies (which, although unique, were still enjoyable). Fraternally Jers

    Peterson Special Reserve 2013

    I've just noticed that this year's Peterson's Special Reserve has been released - has anybody tried it yet? Any favourable (or otherwise) reviews available from the brothers? What about you Kyle? I am led to believe you are particularly fond of secret smoking the occasional aromatic. I...
