    That was a great choice, and I hope you enjoy it (I think you will). You might find that's a Speyside though, not an Islay.

    Your right but i think i will enjoy it and its always good to try somenew stuff.

    Have been drinking some islay stuff recently like bowmore, caol ila , laphroaig and the craggan was standing next to the isaly stuff in the store so i thought it was from there to.

    Depaz Rhum Agricole

    It is great. I am not a huge fan of Rum with the exception of Rum from Martinique. I had only had Clement before and Depaz is excellent. I think that Clement may be a better value for the money though.

    Bought a 4-pack of Dogfish Head's Burton Baton for $15. 10% ABV. Imperial IPA blended with English strong ale, aged in oak barrels.

    I love top-shelf microbrews because they're the best beer you can buy in the US, and much cheaper than wine in the same category.

    That Sauternes looks familiar!

    I was looking at the Cambria this weekend, for some reason, then remembered my cellar only has room for about four cases more. I need to drink more and buy less. Let me know how you like it Mark?

    Found it (the 2003) at a local store on closeout and picked up 4 bottles to try. If you recommend it I'll run back and pick up several more. I like the half bottles in the Sauternes because my wife doesn't do dessert wines and I don't like opening a whole bottle just for me.

    I've become a big fan of the Cambria. I picked up the Julia's because I can get it pretty cheap ($20). I ordered a mixed case from them a while back (it's gone now) and REALLY liked some of their other Pinots, but they are more expensive and "the Boss" has me on a wine budget right now. [​IMG] (j/k...sort of). The Julia's has become my "go to" Pinot in the $20 price range.

    If you got it for a good price, you did good. But to be frank, I think these are superior, for just a little more: [​IMG] Thanks for the info on Cambria. If I want to buy a quick pop and pour, I'll give it a shot. I've got nearly 200 bottles of pinot now though, so I really plan to not purchase much until the fall releases. Notice the nice dark amber of the 13 year old Sauternes though? I love wine [​IMG]

    The 2003 Chateau Guiraud is one of my favorites, one of the first wines that sold me on how great wine can really be.

    How much did you pick up the half bottles for??

    $25. Their regular price was about $33 I think.
