that is another thing I am trying to figure if El Jefe deals are going to be worth my wait... or will I regret not getting this today?

It is likely that any deals he does will not beat the Woot deals. Even when we were on the RPM tours, deals the wineries gave us never beat any deals that we had previously gotten on woot. So if you want the Viognier, I would say get it now through here. And then get other stuff while at the wootception.

Might be a little bit tough. I'm in Ithaca, so I'm at least 3 hours away?

I'll happily take a couple bottles of the TO Viognier at the woot price off somebody's hands. No way I could justify the whole set right now.

2014: 42 bottles. Last wine.woot: 2012 Iron Horse Estate Chardonnay
2013: 66 bottles, 2012: 91 bottles, 2011: 92 bottles, 2010: 74 bottles, 2009: 30 bottles, 2008: 3 bottles My CT

Likely I could accommodate, if you don't let me forget or lose track of it first...

Darling Cat,
Being with you to celebrate your marriage to HAK (on both coasts) is awesomeness enough. Everything else is a bonus.

So any bourbon drinkers here? Hubby's best friend is getting married and he's a bourbon drinker. Thought a bottle of good bourbon (~$100) is a good night before the wedding present. Any recommendations? He got into bourbon while attending school at William and Mary. Thanks.

I will ask my friends who recently went bourbon trail in KY. Bourbon cream (much more delicious than baileys and not as sweet) though is amazing, but might not be something you get for a guy

That stuff is amazing, I got to see if they have it locally, since I'm not making it up to KY anytime soon

Good news! If any of you missed sharknado on syfy last Thursday there is an encore this Thursday. I only saw the first 1/2 and need to see the rest.

Posted a list above.. Not $100, but Angels Envy is a favorite. And for rye look for Whistle Pig from Vermont. About $70.

Pretty reasonably priced, most of them. Bit of a surprise. Better keep it quiet, or it'll go the way of Scotch prices.

Take the short drive up to Beltramo's on El Camino in Atherton. They've got the bourbon you're looking for - if you want to get the guy something he's never had, they also pick their own casks of both bourbon and Scotch and bottle it themselves. Talk to the whiskey guy there and you'll be set.

Scottish Open seems to call for Scotch. Is it too early?

Most of the die-hard Scotch drinkers I know wouldn't even understand the concept of "too early".

With Lefty on top, my dad (a big Lefty fan and a Scotch man in heritage AND in choice of quaff) will most certainly be joining you in that pursuit today!

Had a Scottish beer, Ola Dubh Ale that is finished in Highland Park whiskey barrels. Wonderful brew.
