This should be some good news, if not for the Lotus parts, then the scotch. :D

What? You've gone without Stilton for all this time? I'd have had withdrawal symptoms by now.

I haven't had Stilton in ages but I'm partial to an English Cheddar that's already reasonably priced at my local Costco. Most good cheeses regardless of origin are ridiculously overpriced in USA.

I have a feeling some importers will not bother passing the savings on to us, particularly the whisky importers...

I suspect that you are correct. Especially the whisky.
