I have some vintage '63s and '69s plus another dozen or so in the wine cooler.
How many bottles in your collection, boss?
I remember outside of your Vagon, your wine collection was your main worry during hurricane season.

Half dozen of 50 year old vintage Port, another 8 bottles of more recent (10 to 20 year old) Port. Then there's about another sixty bottles of wine in my cellar. I'm hurricane ready.

Port. Vintage Port.
(I'm a snob when it comes to Port. I was spoiled at age 18 by my brother in law who was known nationally for his Zinfandel knowledge.)

I'm not sophisticated enough to weigh in on this. I like both Port and Tawny - they are different animals to this palate.

Excellent, sir.

My wife invited me into wine a while back, but quickly rescinded her decision when she discovered I was reducing her pours per bottle. Occasionally, when she is feeling gracious, I am worthy of a glass.

The beauty of wine is 'who cares' what other people think? What you like, and what you like it with, is all that matters. You like white, I like red. You like French wines, I like Italian. Who cares? We all like wine. Let's drink. And I like 'em all. Pour me another one!

Substitute wine for bourbon or beer and I'm on board.
Cheers!

Evil minds think alike. Interesting that the attraction of a given convivial libation is every bit as much a factor of pairing with the company and associated activities (or lack thereof) as it is with developed tastes, habit and budget (or lack thereof).
Geez- I'm supposed to wait til 6pm to get this philosophical.

I do enjoy wine, but as mentioned earlier my interest in fermented grapes is in direct conflict with my wife's desire to share said beverage.

Works in your favor. She can have the entire bottle and, well, so can you, lol.

Just crashing the schedule to retain critical path. I have to be somewhere by May.

The nearest I get to the wife's champagne is to uncork it, and never any threatening moves like I'm going to drink some. It apparently works as I still have all my fingers. She might ask to puff on my cigar she thinks smells real good, but has absolutely no use for any of my bourbon.

I like it when The Mrs doesn't ask, but rather just takes my cigar and puffs on it. ;)

Today was a great day outside of going back to work. My buddy returned from Va. with my Old Forester bottles and he mentioned in passing that he was interested in a bottle of WP Rye, so I ran out and bought a bottle for him as a future housewarming gift and got one for myself as well.

Buffalo Trace (Sazerac) varieties are once again cleaned off the shelves of all the stores I've been to in the last week.

So, Long - righteous score there. Color me dark caramel with envy.

Crowdsource creds maybe the shiniest new object? Appears BT be reapin' the ill winds of their own success:
And yes, I skimmed.
