The local Total Wine ran a $5 off $50 spirit coupon, which they never normally run, so I went on a bit of a booze binge last night. Managed to snag a bottle of Pappy 12 that was leftover from a special order. Snatched that fucker up quick as it's been impossible to find down here. Got a bottle of Bulleit and a rum suggestion from the manager to replace my recently deceased Ron Matusalem. Will post pics in a bit.
found a $9 bottle of 2004 Barbera d'Asti. Older, but I figured I'd give it a go. It was great! Bright raspberry, well integrated acidity, and a hint of cotton candy on the nose. Perfect with the Neapolitan pizza I rocked.
Went to a fundraiser the other night and bid on a few silent auction items. One of the things I won was a bottle of Remy Martin XO identical to the one I posted a couple of weeks ago...but $40 cheaper.
Nice score Mark! And for a good cause. I donated a case last week for a charity auction. Included a bottle of the '07 Merry Edwards Sauv. Blanc. My estimated value was $300 for the case, they got $700.
