Ok. I'm in. Time to give this stuff another try.

Thankfully with molarchae joining me we now have 3 or 4 bottles between us. That ought to keep us for another year or two.

If you don't have a stock of this, though, get it!

Yeah, but the wine.woot, she doesn't get her $5 shipping any more...mothership Amazon does. Plus there's this inflation thinggy that's often quite annoying.

Easiest auto buy ever!

And we might even give one as a gift for Christmas, although there are enough days before Christmas to reconsider...

I still buy the $4 Balsamic from Trader Joes for dressings, etc, but I usually upgrade it with a little drizzle of this stuff.

My first time buying this was after people mentioned it as an ice cream topping. That just sounded too weird, but it IS good!

Also one of the few wine woots that does not cause storage issues....

In for 2...because I can't be in for more...

It is vinegar so pretty much for ever I have some that is 50+ years old. Even with the younger stuff worst case some evaporates and makes the rest thicker and sweeter.

Woot, I love you. I was about to pay retail for another bottle as I finished the last one.
This stuff is awesome. Very good and a good price for what you get.

I don't know how you guys make this stuff last for a year, it's insanely, addictively good. It's true you only need a little bit but when you use it every day...

If they let me buy like 4, then I'd gift. This is the most excellent ice cream topper.

So glad this came up - my bottle was getting down to its bottom eighth... I could sip this stuff straight it is so good. My favorite use is drizzled over vanilla ice cream, yum!

Thankfully, my roommate and I still have a couple bottles of this... but I may still end up buying some for my friend as a wedding gift.

I actually have some 16 year aged balsamic that some relatives gifted me with when we had a family get-together this summer. My aunt, who is Italian and lives less than an hour from Modena, had *never* had real balsamic vinegar before I went over and visited them a couple years ago. I still think that's just weird. In any case, the 16 year balsamic is even better than this... but I doubt the cost/deliciousness ratio is as favorable.

I normally wouldn't but this has had some good reviews this time and last.

In for two. If I ruin it with bad use I can at least give a bottle to my aunt and know it will be used well.

Very good stuff....for many first-time buers it will change how you regard Balsamic.

"Bad use". That term is hitting my funny bone. What are some ideas for bad use for this balsamic?

Botte Piccola on Captain Crunch? Nope, i'd eat it..

This past summer I made strawberry and black pepper gelato and had this handy for my coworkers to drizzle over their gelato. They still ask when I'm going to do that again. Guess I'd better buy it up... sounds like it won't be around in the morning.

Now that i'm thinking about it, IIRC it was you who sent me a bottle of this to try in my early Woot days..it's been a long and EXPENSIVE journey ever since!

Sorry brother but I felt the need to blame someone else for my weakness

This is great stuff. Tastes sweet on strawberries and fabulous with evoo on sliced tomatoes with buffalo mozzarella. One bottle on Amazon runs $65.50, shipped. I bought two here for less than $20 more.

This stuff is so incredibly good. I am ALWAYS in for the maximum every time it's here.

We can cellar 545 bottles here at home. This means we must quickly consume the other 436 bottles on hand...
