As for my favourite whine, there can be no doubt that the finest whine I have ever taste is Mind-reading imps. Not too bitter, not too sweet, a perfect blend of flavours, and a beautiful colour (


How about a variation on that? The new AI is unbeatable and it's companion LSMs don't work any more. Both of which, despite having a smell of over rated self opinion taste sweetly of irony. Both taste like they should be green but are not.

My personal favourate whine is let me nav cos I'm gud or my crew will be hostile to you. Best served with the cheese I call your bluff. My flag loves glub glub. A supremely strong cheese. It's cliché but one of the most enjoyable one which many people will enjoy if not the person you offer it to.

I always loved the taste of what about Cobalt, if only because the people who hated it always prefered the taste of This game is dead.

I've noticed that one whine is only as good as it is rare, and that is of course look at my enormous e-peen.

The elusive ship decay whine is particularly suited to my specific palate. As far as cheese goes, I've always found the more common bring back 24 hour blockades variety to be highly complementary.

Ahh, Rome, so sweet of you to bring your own vintage of Messiah Complex to fix all the bitter whines being thrown around today.

Perhaps I can offer you, instead, a nice white Let it go. It's fresh, it's refined, it's brings out everything you've come to expect from a game.



The bottle of It's just a game! was rather hard to swallow, please pass a glass of I handle all my problems with the game by complaining out of game because i'm not actually able to do anything about them in the game vintage you so enjoy.

Personally, two of my favorite blockade whines are Why don't we sword fight? and Captain, sink, I want a hook!

The second is often rumoroed to be available only during sinking blockades, but you'll be glad to hear that's not so - I have personally encountered this whine in more than one non-sinking blockade, often accompanied by If we can't get hooks, then what's the point of this? cheese.

Personally, I've got a few bottles of what do you mean you wardec'd your own flag's allies?! stored away in the cellar. It's perfect for washing out the taste of ZOMG! U blockade mi island, diedie! (black label grammar edition), which I always found to be too sour.

And I liked the It's a game I had. I think it depends on where you get it from.

I just got some fine whine You only won the blockade with allie's bnaver and JC. Best time to drink it is after blockade. Extremely big ego flag would enjoy it after they got crushed.

I dug up my old 2005 case of subbers are better than doubbers. I compared it with my 2006 vintage of dub playas pwn dis gaem. I prefer the former for its smooth drinkability and minimal aftertaste, but the 2006 vintage is strong and fruity, and cheap, as it seems everyone has some.

That was a good one- I remember Coblat Boozeatorium and Viridian Greenfarms both put out tenured Midders are winning all our prizes! It was so good, I decided to well, drain a case and a half of the Viridian blend in one month last year.

One of my favorites is X is too good at this game, thereby ruining my fun. With a high alcohol content, it can be too strong for many, and go straight to their heads. But the high quality of this whine is best unpaired; please do not waste it with food.

A particularly strong Chateau for this varietal, reliable crop after crop, is the Y has earned too many familiars and I want one too! Definitely a good whine to age; time only adds to the bouquet of fanimal-envy.

Niether group is prepared to accept a more mellow whine, Let's keep it in the inns for a while longer.

The premier whine labels nearly all seem to come from Chateau Whitefire. A confident and some say arrogant maker who's output guarantees fierce aguments among cogniscenti as to his merits. Each vintage has it's own characteristic and the most recent pressing is dry and even a trifle too sour for many.

It was hoped that the Whitefire label would mature and settle down as one of the great classic whines but sadly the product is too erratic and is prone to oxidisation especially when poorly stored. Bottles from this house should not be allowed too near the light until ready for consumption. One hesitates to compare whines to Tequila but a good dose of salt around the rim of a glass does wonders for the flavour.

Of late, I have noticed an increase in whines of the Three Rings is a bad company because of X variety. The more popular (though not by much) is the They charged my credit card without my permission which recently reared it's ugly head again after quite a long period of dormancy.

As well, there have been some varieties of They made this game stagnant which has turned many people off.

Hooray! An epicurean thread at last in which we can compare our tastes and fine vintage years!

I haven't seen it mentioned yet in this thread, but when I think of whines, my mind immediately hearkens back to the 2003-2004 run of The game isn't the same any more and I'm quitting. This was enjoyed by a number of beta testers at the Shore Leave parties of the time, who would find themselves coming back immediately, sometimes two, three, or even four times for another glass!

There have been variants on that flavour since of course, but none of them have ever been able to make me grind my teeth in quite the same way. Alas!

Sometimes there are these cheap whines that come from Chateau Suty, most recent one is Edit button is there for a reason.

I don't like taem on teh HaT zomg!!@1!, since the aftertaste makes me want to hurl. It is a nasty taste, which can make you cry if you drink it at the wrong time of day. I wouldn't reccomend drinking it after a long heavy dinner.

But then there is the limited Battle of the sexes whine, which had a truly exploding bouqet. The boxes were empty soon, but alot of new friendships were made at that party.
Alas, it is a whine more enjoyed by woman then men. I would say, maybe the 2007 series will be better for our male pirates.

On of my favorite forum varietels, from the GD vineyard, is the "I think there should be whine" quip. It's sharp and fruity, with little aftertaste, but after the 12th bottle, let alone the 50th, grows a little tiresome.
