I’d buy it if it had my name on it,
Fulldraw has a bottle of Syrah with my wife’s nickname,
Honey Bunny, bought a couple mags & .750’s just because of that. Plus they are really good wines

Bruichladdich

Black Art 5.1 24 Year Single Malt Scotch 1992

Fantastic single malt that we brought back from Scotland. More Speyside in character than Islay for sure, this has some amazing aromas of hazelnut with a great, lingering finish. Awesome! — 6 days ago

The Glenrothes

18 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glenrothes used to have a relatively unique labeling convention. They would mark the distillation date (vintage date). They did away with all that and adopted a more traditional age statement for their bottles. This was a crazy dark color after seeing 18 years in ex-sherry casks. Delicious honey, nuts, and dried fruits. Smooth. A pleasant “oiliness” though not to the extreme that the Craigellachie has. Long finish. Rich and delicious. Definitely worth seeking out. — 11 days ago

This was outstanding - berries and spice - great nose and perfect balance on the palate - a classic

@Bill Bender They say Norman/Norrie is a common name of the Scottish Highlands but my mother who claims 100% Irish heritage might not invite me over for corned beef on the 17th if I press that assertion....

Agree @Norman Gennaro drop it and just take the corn beef. Can’t go wrong there.

Johnnie Walker

Game of Thrones White Walker Limited Edition Blended Scotch Whisky

Color is light gold. Nose of fermented grains, burned sugar, caramel, and apple cider. Taste is also light, smooth, and sweet, with spicy note comes on 2nd wave. Apple cider, caramel, vanilla, citrus, and a bit salty note. Aftertaste isn’t long but still quite smooth and shows some warmth. I enjoyed it. — 18 days ago

Glenfarclas

Aged 25 Years Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

You can’t find a better 25 year old scotch for the price, if price is not an issue go with the 40 year, thats the best scotch I’ve had — a month ago

Agreed. I used to think their 30 had the best QPR, but the price on that really shot up recently. And I’m with you: the 40 is the best scotch I’ve ever had. Period.

Kosta Browne

Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

2015 Kosta Browne Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir, 14.3% alcohol. So I greatly prefer the SLH to the Russian River and the Sonoma Coast. Just seems more elegant and creamy to me. More in my wheelhouse. Very floral on the nose with lots of minty cherry on the palate. Finishes with a touch of sassafras. Bright acidity. Lovely really. And while l’m on the topic of Michael Browne, I vaguely remember an announcement on the last CIRQ release that Michael was starting his own “Browne Family” wine. I even remember clicking on a link to sign up. Now, nothing. Did I dream that whole scenario or can any of you wine aficionados help me out? — 8 hours ago
