A guide to vintage whine


Inspired by recent events, I figured we needed a guide to vintage whine here on the forums. I'll start.

Banning vintage 2006 - A heady aroma of failure, nervous sweat, and righteous indignation accompanies this whine. Often distributed in a green bottle, this whine can be easily distinguished by the loud noise it makes upon opening.

I prefer the fruity flavor of a nice red Quitting the Game. The year doesn't really matter, they are all fine wines.

Re: A guide to vintage whine
Surely you jest. This game is stagnant provides the most subtle bouquet, with just a hint of Ringers, you're making terrible choices and alienating us all.

All this vintage whine. I want the forum equivalent to a bottle of Night Train. Just give me 63 more threads on a warning about this (flag/crew/person).

Re: A guide to vintage whine
The 2006 harvest of 'X is ruining the game', with X determining the region of harvest, is a somewhat elegant wine, but lacks a sweet balance to accompany the bitter aftertaste.



I love this thread. Really.

Re: A guide to vintage whine
I thought I'd lay my bottle of plea for this or thatdown for a few years and let it develop in complexity, but I recently sampled a friend's bottle and I must say... très magnifique!

The bouquet it a little simple, at first, and it can be a little grating on the palette - but after 5 or 6 bottles, you're too drunk to know the difference.

Re: A guide to vintage whine
I have to say I've always been partial to the You're just jealous types of whines, if only because of their lack of aftertaste.

Re: A guide to vintage whine
These are low-end whines. Let us not forget the truly special, high-end, dare I say "elite" whines . . . .

I'm partial myslef to a nice glass of dockpressing , but if ye don't like that one there's always the good ol' island ownership doesn't mean anything anymore whine. The 2006 fame evasion whine is also always a crowd-pleaser.

Chalet All I Did Was Break The Rules So Why Was I Banned, while typically only avaliable in smaller bottles and of varying quality, if sipped properly, can be deliciously fruity and just a tad bitter. It goes best with some Cinnamon Bunpleasing.

Re: A guide to vintage whine
I'd recommend avoiding Plz giv POEz at all costs. While the initial taste is sweet, the sickening feeling after tasting removes any pleasure that could be derived from it.

Re: A guide to vintage whine
Oh, come now. Even the finest palate must recognize the inherent superiority of the dry I found this game much more fun two years ago whine, with its hint of tart.

Unfortunately, this wine does not age well at all, and so must be quaffed quickly.

Re: A guide to vintage whine
The only whine that I've found I don't like is conformist whine. Bland, flavorless. Might as well be water.

Re: A guide to vintage whine
One of my personal favorites is the 'My brother did it' collection. Best consumed in the format of a blind sampling, it's often exciting to find that you can't distinguish whether you're tasting a white (lie) or a red (herring) .

Re: A guide to vintage whine
I highly recommend the 'ur cheating' , particularly in the greener vintages. My personal favourite, this fine varietal comes with a frisson of the old world mixed in with the dulcet tones of bittersweet success, melded with the faintest hint of asparagus.

I still sip regularly from Ships doubled in price overnight and now I can't afford one!, though of late I haven't fully savored it and can't really judge if it's as good as I remember.

I suppose that makes me an elitist snob, though. I won't touch anything from after But I liked purple dev names!

I have to agree with everyone on various vintages, though I haven't sampled some of the older ones. One of my personal favorites has always been, Where's the Kraken?!? with it's easy accompaniment of all seafood.

Re: A guide to vintage whine
I do believe I have an old bottle of The Economy is ruined by stalls from back in the day. Made by only a few full Shoppe owners, the bitter tannins tend to overshadow the smooth old world grapes it was made from.

Re: Also, yeah, narcissistic jokes are the bestest
I'm partial to a strong red, myself, and the most recent I want to opt out of Barbarians because I suck at Rumbling is the one for me. The bracing tannins and stone-fruit overtones make up for the simplicity of the aroma and slightly bitter aftertaste. Give it a few years and I suspect it will mellow into a whine to be savored.
