i Cryptic Crossword 1376 Dac

July 8, 2015

Quite a few odd words made this seem a little tougher than usual, especially in the NW corner, though overall time was about par for the i. The Blairs feel like ancient history now, so 1ac didn’t fall as quickly as it might have back in 2010.

Lots to like as ever, of course, from Dac, but my COD goes to 5d, if only because I was expecting the name of some obscure Spanish dish – ‘Grilled squid, note, can be ordered all across Spain (10)’.

We seem to have skipped large parts of the summer on Fifteensquared:

    Yes, 1ac was the last one in for me. 16ac is a nicely polished little clue which made me smile.
