Nicely done, Bomba!

i won a couple of lots at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra charity auction. I stopped attending these in 2014 because the hammer prices were silly, so I was surprised on Thursday that many lots went for relatively reasonable prices, and some were steals. There’s also no buyers’ premium or sales tax at these charity auctions.

1 x 2000 Aldo Conterno Barolo Riserva Granbussia

1 x 1996 Aurelio Settimo Barolo Rocche

1 x 1998 Batasiolo Barolo Vigneto Corda Della Briccolina

1 x 2004 Cavallotto Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppi

1 x 1997 Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga Gaiun

1 x 1990 Produttori del Barbaresco Asili

3 x 1996 Isole e Olena Cepparello

1 x 1997 Isole e Olena Cepparello

The Cepparello were in one lot, and the rest were a second lot. I got the Barolo/Barbaresco for WS low, but paid CAD... so I basically paid 25% less than WS low. ($1 CAD = $0.75 USD)

Opened the 96 Silver Oak last night to test my purchase. Cork came out whole and solid. Storage was perfect. Wine was a bit thin at opening but picked up weight over a couple hours and showed very well. The other nice wines in the purchase should be great. Also opened Rutherford Hill zinfandel port. After a sip we poured it down the drain.

Vintage Keeper 500, will get a few cases out of storage..

 

Mine is still working perfectly for over 10 years.

I see some online reviews that state the cooling units crap out every 2-3 years.  I gather you have not had that experience.

My experience has been that they last 10-15 years.  One that I bought new lasted 14 years.  Another that was bought used, was 10 or more years old when I replaced the cooling unit.

That was my experience with a VK500. I will acknowledge I was not very diligent with the vacuuming of the unit and I think it's very important. They seem to be sensitive to a little dust. Oh well, now I use the cabinet as shelving in my passive cellar.

14 x 2013 Boutari Grande Riserva, not chasing points.  QPR wine. 

Thanks VinC! I didn't realize it was released last weekend. I'll grab some tonight.

So I went to the Bloor/Royal York store last night to get some Boutari. Online inventory said they had 54 bottles in stock. I couldn't find it anywhere on the shelf, even with the help of two different staff members. They finally found it in the stock room.

I bought 4 bottles and paid cash, but I wasn't paying attention and didn't do the math when he rang it up. After he handed me my receipt I noticed that it was $26.05/bottle instead of $22.95. Then I noticed that the receipt listed it as the 2012 vintage instead of 2013.

He scanned the bottles again and it still came up on their system as 2012. LCBO should really stop using the same SKU for multiple vintages of a wine.

I had to go get my phone from my car and show him the wine on the LCBO app to verify the product code and price, and then he had to enter it by hand. And then refund the difference.

Between not being able to find the wine and the screw up at the cash, a simple in-and-out purchase ended up taking 45 minutes.

Just left QQ and they had a few shelves worth of it.  Didnt check the price becuase i already picked some up.  While at QQ, I grabbed some 2006 LdH Tondonia Reserva.

Agree.  I've killed two compressors off over the past 12 years.  If you install a VK500, make sure that you leave lots of room behind the unit to allow easy access to vacuum the exterior vents of the compressor.

Interesting. Missed seeing the 2012 Boutari but bought 3 2013s this past weekend at the local lcbo. I picked up more Bosconia and Commadaria St Nicolas, a dessert wine from Cyprus that’s really unique for the price.

Nicely done Sunny.  Some other friends won some lots there.  I gave up on it because of the stupid hammer prices in recent years.  Maybe enough people stayed away that there were some more reasonable prices... Might give it another try next year.

I bid on, or was going to bid on, perhaps 10 different lots. Most lots easily surpassed my max bid. But the mixed lot of Barolo/Barbaresco was an anomaly. I was surprised I got it at the price I did. BTW I opened the first bottle a few nights ago (the Marchesi di Gresy Gaiun) and it was singing.

My impression was that most lots went for fair market value (which was more than I was willing to pay because I'm a bargain hunter).

You should’ve just stated that outright, rather than immediately start out trying to justify an opinion/criticism that isn’t shared by a lot of folks who drink bourbon.  I’ve always enjoyed a variety of high proof whiskeys and whiskies neat, and that’s certainly not an outlier amongst many aficionados.

You really expect any rational person to agree with you here?  Your first reply was:

I find the 1792 full proof undrinkable. Way too hot.

Remind us where we should interpret from that statement that you don't find any bourbon with a proof higher than 80 in your palate’s wheelhouse?

Or are you referring to your next reply?

Have you actually had it? I've poured it to multiple friends that agreed. Tried to use in cocktails as no one wants to drink it and it Didn't even make a good old fashioned. So many better bourbons out there.”

Again, kindly point out to us where you admit that your palate is skewed towards lower proof bourbons?

I figured you’d use the lame rationale of “way too hot” = “I don’t like any high proof bourbon”. That rationale wouldn’t fly in an ESL creative writing class, and that definitely isn’t the case here.

Never mind that high proof bourbons come in a variety of styles and flavor profiles.  Never mind that some of the most desirable bourbons released annually are high proof (e.g. WIlliam Larue Weller, Thomas H Handy, George T Stagg, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, Stagg Jr, etc).  Never mind that industry professionals whose reviews are highly regarded by many bourbon aficionados, such as Fred Minnick, Jim Murray and Whisky Advocate, more often than not choose high proof bourbons as their Whiskey of the Year.  We’re supposed to believe their palates are all misguided, and yours is what we should subscribe to?

And it’s always amusing when someone accuses another of being “not that bright”, yet the accuser can’t figure out the difference between “your” and “you’re” grammatically.  Guess my jest about ESL creative writing struck a little too close to home........

Never mind that high proof bourbons come in a variety of styles and flavor profiles.  Never mind that some of the most desirable bourbons released annually are high proof (e.g. WIlliam Larue Weller, Thomas H Handy, George T Stagg, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, Stagg Jr, etc).  Never mind that industry professionals whose reviews are highly regarded by many bourbon aficionados, such as Fred Minnick, Jim Murray and Whisky Advocate, more often than not choose high proof bourbons as their Whiskey of the Year.  We’re supposed to believe their palates are all misguided, and yours is what we should subscribe to?  

Really? That's what you've got. Trying to cyber bully again? It's simple but I guess your not that bright. I don't like it

Cheer up, snowflake!

And it’s always amusing when someone accuses another of being “not that bright”, yet the accuser can’t figure out the difference between “your” and “you’re” grammatically.  Guess my jest about ESL creative writing struck a little too close to home........

what kind of cookie? i like cookies 

I’m partial to dark chocolate and walnut cookies.  Not a fan of snickerdoodles, though.

Being as you are so partial to following critics blindly I'm surprised you're not a fan of the 5 time winner of America's favorite cookie as voted on by none other than Betty Crocker, Martha Stewart and Julia Child! So do you blindly follow Wilfred Wong, Suckling and Parker also? If a critic says it's great I guess that's fine by you. Baaaaaaa 

I don't like it. I'm allowed not to like things. I don't care what any critic says. I have poured it for several friends (some of whom you know) and they don't like it either. Simple as that! It's ok if you like it (even if you're  just pretending). But your cyber bully routine trying to convince yourself otherwise is quite tiresome. Play the grammar police some more as you're well on your way to being viewed as the rising star among forum curmudgeons. It's amusing to many of us. Too bad you can't see the PM's

Not just you. 
On topic, a magnum of NV Piper-Hiedsieck for $49.99.

And of all topics, it's about bourbon.


Talk about a slow day

There’s PM’s here now??? 🙀🙀

OMG! And I’ve been coming here just to see some of the ugly formatting that this software provides so well.

PM sent.

Group PM sent as well.

Finally arrived a day late yesterday:

2 x 2017 Carlisle The Derivative White
2 x 2017 Carlisle Zinfandel Dupratt Vineyard
2 x 2017 Carlisle Zinfandel Papera Ranch
6 x 2017 Thomas Pinot Noir Dundee Hills

Down to 18 pending.  I think that'll likely be it for this year.  The balance is mostly pre-paid pre-arrivals due next March or October.
