I wiznae doubting yi Sputnik but at the rate it once was consumed at in the city for the price one has to wonder if it had ever been south of Ayr never mind Africa. Think the Lanliq was the same ... Probably the same stuff if i am honest as i never could differentiate a difference in taste and at 15 my palate was not worried of such trivial matters.



Never actually knew about an old tawny

According to thon link though it says Cyprus on the label.
