Is the '07 the year we had 30 threads from redspyke about it? I do believe that was the best year yet.

Unfortunately, the former is being being phased out by Atlantis Vineyards in favor of Atlantis now has autodivy. Despite some claiming it is the end of Atlantis Vineyards, others claim it filled a gap in its lineup.

Every time I sample Badge du Atlantean Tarting and how much they are getting ripped off by the Vineyard I am disappointed with how similar it tastes compared to previous whines from Château de Freeloader.

One can only hope that they sail the entire vintage and donate it to the House of Dragoon.

I must confess to indulging in a few "I Never Get Anything From Chests". I couldn't help myself. The light, almost empty, taste was so effortlessly bittersweet that before I knew it I was awash in the vintage. Thankfully shedenfreude cheese cleared my palate once I got atlantean colored clothing. That cheese goes with everything.

The classic "CN I GUNN?? Y CNANT I GUN??" will never go out of style. Its heady, strident flavor refuses to be ignored, although it tends to lack staying power (immediately leaving sloop pillys, or being planked on larger ships).
Sloop captains may be surprised to find a similar experience from the "cna i bnav plz i want 2" vineyard, which tends to be more rare and subtle, but has been known to persist *for an entire 8 LP trip*.

These whines are best served with a cheese from the "my uthr alt is Leg" group. :p

I've discovered a fine new vintage: "Because Skellies are now random, I will never ever be able to fight one again.". It only goes with the fast computer cheese, any other will make it extremely bitter.

Ah, I recently had the opportunity to sample an old favorite from Feegle Vinyards, and sure enough the classic Canada's a Real Country, America Smells like Poo continues to delight. The full and unlettered nose gives way to a heady yet naive flavor that pleases even the most jaded palates.

We're actually on our seventh or eighth bottling of that exact vintage. It's a curious thing; the recipe has stayed exactly the same every time, but the flavour tends to shift slightly with every batch. I'd suggest contacting our quality control specialist, Llama. He'd likely be glad to discuss the reasons for the flavour shifts.

As a distiller, I confess a soft spot for You distillers need to make rum faster but stop making it cost so scuppering much!. Though the nose is overpowered by hypocrisy, the subtle overtones of mad business knowledge skillz more than make up for it to provide an overall cheery taste. I find it especially good with a nice nutty Then come provide labor then, lazy sonofatart! cheese. Although it has very little finish at all, it has a nice bite to it.

I've noticed a rise in shipments of Doub prices are too high, Atlantis is unbalanced, as well as There's no money in the oceans. I can't figure out which vineyard makes this, and frankly, none of them seem very well done to me.

I am finding the undertones of "Chambord De Whatz teh TH teamz" unbalanced; yet frightfully powerful; with a nasty after taste.

What could be a blatant oversight is the less bold and somewhat fruity, wood tone blend of "Backseat Nav 07" because everyone knows the complexities of "I Could Have Navved Better Than That" are arguable at the very least.

I find that a bottle of "Backseat Nav" goes very well with the "Then take your own bloody boat next time" cheese - although pungent and quite bitter, it can be a very satisfying combination...

Fortunately there appears to be a new line in production after successful badgering by customers of that fine whine, hopefully it'll push all those mouldy crates of Statwhore off the shelves and back where they belong, running down the gutters into the sewer where they belong :)

Hunter Whineries has just released its second vintage of We Need More Islands Opened. Accompanying this release was a new varietal, Blockades are too Expensive, from Hunter's 2000 PoE per Segment vinyard.

Both whines are somewhat bitter, lacking in complexity, and over-priced. Adults who are familiar with the whine world can find better offerings in other vinyards, so these vintages are likely only to be sipped by underage children when their parents aren't looking. Folks of legal drinking age are abandoning Hunter whinery in droves and more will follow if we don't see at least a medium crop of late-harvest grapes for a sweet dessert.

With Hunter's current release of whines looking so unappetizing, I'm predicting a banner year for New Ocean Please.

If they had any sense, they'd be tucking into this half-empty bottle of Midnight we've been carefully nursing for such an occasion.

They're content to let that whine turn to vinegar on the shelves, instead of making anything new.

Oh, I never said it was the best there, just that as you seem so desperately short of anything to fill your cups you might want a wee glass.

Anyway, my latest tipple is a nice flaming-hot mouthful of Why doe the scupperin reboot never get delayed when I'M winning the SF? Always leaves me with a bitter taste in my mouth.

I just had a sample of Skelly randomization is unfair. Very interesting taste, complete with some squid-like flavor, as well as a very strong bite. Some people feel that the vintage was rushed, and I've heard that the quality control is lacking, that it's a bit of a gamble whether you get a good bottle or not.

Yes, that Skellifrais Nouveau is a most refreshing new tipple. As with all sparkling updates of sour old flavours, the old guard who know better because their palates got so tailored to the musty old variety have to stamp their feet in indignant outrage at the changes in the market. Just because a new variety is a bit more widely available to the public to indulge in, does not mean it isn't an improvement on the old.

(More likely they just hogged so many bottles of the old stuff they consider their cellar devalued by the new competition).

I've been sampling the newest vintage, the roles are taking over ruining the game, by people who are trying to find imposters. It has the tartiest flavor of any whine I've ever seen.
