    I wouldn't rush to blame the blade. I've gotten many a good shave with Treets. (YMMV, of course. ) Sounds like the lather was the main problem. If you're used to using "goo" you may be using too...

    I often drink my single malts over ice. To be sure, the best way to get to know a scotch is to sniff, sip straight, then open it up with little bit of water. Once I'm on familiar terms with a scotch,...

    Peat and smoke. Maybe it's my bias, but I find peaty, smoky (and spicy) scotches more complex and challenging than those that deliver tamer flavors like sherry, fruit, vanilla, etc. Not that I always...

    I revisited my Williams puck a few months back. The lather sucked, and so did the shaves. It makes a very nice bath soap, though.

    Add Crabtree & Evelyn West Indian Lime to the list. Excellent scent, lather, and performance. It's the only C&E soap I've tried, but based on this one I'd surely likely to try others in the line.
