    Just got back from the LCBO. The Jordanne was ordered. The others are favourites.

    I had that Mitolo Shiraz last week. I really enjoyed it.

    We really get the shaft with the limited selection at the LCBO, eh?

    they usually are not cheaper than the stores in the country where they are.

    I got my board chair a bottle of Cragganmore distillery edition.

    Wish you lived nearby Hunts, I'd have you over for a dram of that 28 y/o I just got.

    Well, I hope he appreciates it! That's a nice gift. My (wonderful) boss is part Irish, and seems to really prefer the whisky of his ancestor's Isle, or else that would have been my choice for him also. I picked him up a Jamie's 12 last year; he was really touched and told me how he enjoyed it and shared it with some good friends, which is just what a good whisky should do. I know he's never had the 18, but I know it will be enjoyed and it really pleases me to get him something he wouldn't get himself. The best gifts are double-edged joys. I wish I lived nearby you, too, Pio! That is an invitation I wouldn't turn down, and I thank you for expressing it all the same. It would be fun. ~ H

    Popping open a bottle of Deschutes "The Abyss" tonight that I've seen saving since the run. This stuff eats through tables, seriously, but it's so good. I hate to see it going for as much as 50 bucks a bottle on eBay and whatnot - everyone should have this beer.

    We should send one to Grim. I don't think he's gotten around to buying one yet!

    I opted, instead of cognac, to buy a few bottles of the Sazerac 18 yr rye whiskey. I haven't opened one yet, but I'll tell you why I bought 3 without tasting it. First, the price. $65 after taxes is incredible for an 18 yr whiskey. Second, I've heard only good reviews about it. Third, it only cost $65 a bottle. Pictures may come later...

    Got a bunch of Czech beers on hand for this week: Louny Lager and Czech Budweisers. The Louny's are one of the crispest and distinct lagers I've tasted.

    Pictures might come later...then they might not. [​IMG]

    Just got my Peay order in. Three each of the '06 La Bruma, Les Titans, Scallop Shelf, and Pomarian. First two are Syrah, last two are PNs. If you are a fan of Burgundy over US style PNs, I highly, highly recommend Peay.
