I've heard that the 1811 was incredible. We had one at Trotter's from 1845, and my boss said that he'd tasted a different bottle of it a couple of years ago that was absolutely killer. Granted, the 1845 vintage is not the 1811 vintage. Special bottles don't need an occasion, they are the occasion, Daddy. And to get back to your question a page or so back, I never really had "the bottle." I mean I've had incredible bottles, but they all came after I was either in the industry or interested in becoming a part of the industry. My interest came as a deliberate thought, and not as the result of have an amazing eye-opening bottle like Sea Smoke, or La Tache, or Jayer. I always kind of feel weird when people talk about their "the bottle" experiences and I haz none.
