I Just Bought a... (Wine, Spirit, or Beer) - Page 113

The post-summer/pre-fall haul:

I got the FdC 4 gold to replace the Appleton V/X I just depleted (too many girls and too many rum & cokes). Any other suggestions for a dark rum for mixed drinks?

Came back to Canada from San Francisco with four bottles:
1. (x-post from Bourbon thread) Kentucky Vintage Bourbon 17 year
2. Root
3. Creme de Yvette
4. VEP Chartreuse (green)

I am quite satisfied with the result of my cross-border haul.

Recently I picked up 30 year Alberta Premium Rye which was just released. Fantastic stuff and an amazing bargain at $49.99. It isn't blended with some being 30 years old, but comes from a few barrels that the distiller put aside back in 1983. Only 700 cases. I am thinking of hoarding a few extra bottles, just because.

Entertaining more than ever before, so I stocked up the last couple of weeks with what I enjoy:

Yamazaki 18 x 2
Elijah Craig 18
Ron Zacapa XO x 2
Don Julio 1942
Laphroaig 18
Lagavulin
Edit: I'm on a tear--picked up a inexpensive bottle of Booker's on the way home tonight. Thanks to bdeuce22 for the tip.

I don't even drink more than a couple of times a week. But the guests get a kick out of trying stuff that they'd never on their own. Especially when served in Glencairn.

Looking forward to augmenting the collection with the BTAC & PvW in a month.

That's a pretty nice stock, I'll be over soon for a drink. redface.gif

In Tokyo there is a package store that does deliveries like a pizza place, free delivery too. They have Yamazaki and the two Nikka whiskeys, Yoichi and Miyagikyou, some SMS, some bourbon, beer of course - can call in for some whiskey, ice, beef jerky, and a Coke whenever you find yourself needing to party. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Need some help guys: I'm making a purchase from ShoppersVineyard.com, mostly because I want their cheap, cheap Ron Zacapa XO, and I was wondering what else I should buy that's a good price/not easy to find/etc.. So far, I've got a bottle of Junipero and a bottle of Black Maple Hill burbon. Any other suggestions?

Shit, Rambo...are you signed up Shopper's Vineyard emails? It's too late now, but if so, they sent out a free shipping code on Ron Zacapa XO this past Sunday. Also threw in Don Julio 1942 for a good price too (at least cheaper than anywhere around here).

It's one of the very few retailer's email that I'll examine without just tossing it unopened.

Sounds like you're doing just well enough for yourself there in the nexus of the universe, impolyt one. But if you're ever in mn, you're invited!

I'm a poor mixologist. Because of this, I stick with straight drams. As a result, my bar is meager vs. what I've seen here.

Less the incoming bottles:

No, I haven't ordered from them yet. Do you have the code still? Mind PM'ing it to me please? It would save me a good chunk of change.

Just talked to Shoppers Vineyard and they said they'd honor it! Yes! So, what else should I buy?

They generally will only give you free shipping on the one bottle, not on the whole order. Careful with that.

Yeah, she explained that. Still, I'm ordering a few things that I can't get my hands on anyways, so I figured why not just go for the gusto.

Cause drinkupny.com will ship for free over $100. That pro tip just cost you like 2.5 bottles of MZ RIS. nod[1].gif
