Outrageous Prices at Internet Wine & Spirits

Recommended Posts

I remember laughing at their prices several months ago. Returning to Internet Wines and Spirits is like revisiting an old Dave Barry book.

 

I see they no longer list Sazerac 18-year-old at $150. That price must have been intended for comparison to the spirit's shelf price of $50 to $75 at the time.

 

Ah, there's Lagavulin 16-year-old for only $110! I live in Boston, and the prices here are not pleasant, but I have not seen Lagavulin exceed $70 anywhere. God bless your sense of humor, IW&S!

More like the South African expatriate absinthe mafia don connection, but France always manages to worm its way in there, somehow. :devil:

16 year olds must have much more money nowadays. When I was sixteen all my friends and I could afford was cheap vodka and Icehouse.

My friends and I felt like we were "Upper Crust" if we bought Riunite. (sp?)

 

Otherwise it was Boone's Farm or Annie Greensprings. In those days, it paired well with..........never mind.

I'm glad I was tall, and able to buy real booze back then. :pirate:

 

I rode around in my old Mach-1, "four on the floor", and a "fifth" in the fold down rear seat.

I still have my car from my misspent youth.

Many years ago, down 'round these parts some yungsters decided to have a partay where the only alcohol present had to be purchased without being carded. I've never ingested lemon extract, but I bet if someone were to get a little creative they could have a dandy cocktail.

I remember being 14 with a bottle of Traveler’s Club whiskey I swiped from my Uncle’s basement while cleaning the garage out for him. Nothing beats drinking in the woods with your pals while ogling the ladies skivvies section of Sears catalog.

A couple years ago Yours Truly was being driven home from a Halloween Party at which there was a photo contest, and during said contest I, dressed in a nun's habit with corpsepaint chugged a lot of red wine for the cameras for maximum creepy bloody effect. As I leaned out the window my wyfe slowed down, and I said "don't slow down on my account honey" so she obliged. It was glorious to toss my cookies out the window at 85-90 mph in a nuns habit, but it sucked being at the car wash the next day.

I know you're all very upset, so I'll pretend you never said anything negative about MD 20/20, Boone's Farm, or Stroh's.

 

Edit: actually, I've never had Stroh's. I imagine it's similar to Michelob. But since I've also never tasted that, I'll just assume the both of them are quite like a fine Meisterbrau.

Say something negative about Boonesfarm?

 

Hell, no.

 

I was the only one of my friends who never puked on major quantities of the stuff, back in 1971. :thumbup:
