I'm pleased to see that the 'Cnossos Tartage Whine' has remained a popular vintage. It's acidic bite is tempered by a long palate with gentle flourishes of pheonix and Sexi.

I was just hitting the seas today when a random jobber suddenly offered Chateau de can i join ur crew as SO accompanied by the i hav gud (solid/able) stats cheese and i m trustworthy and deserve access to all ur crews unlocked ships even though we only fought one battle together fish. When I politely refused he left in a huff. He probably doesn't think much of my tastes.

In the following blockade we all got passed a round of Cabernet i did lots of work staring at the deck why dint i get paid pay me 5k naoz accompanied by i job 4 uther side cheese. The initial taste is horribly bitter mixture of sloth and avarice, but it then blooms into a wonderful aftertaste of schadenfreude and superiority.

With the spelling on each of these labels I'm pretty sure they must have been produced by the Majestrate Vineyards. =P

The truly most fine whine must be the one distilled on a ringer controlled island, aged in a war chest, and cooled on ice ocean, to finally become...

Personally I find the particular version of I ned poez, i r pour aged on the docks of Alpha Island to be rather dry, but to a refined, wealthy taster, the bouquet is particularly sweet.

Ahh 'My Free Box Wine isn't Psychic and Gorgeous'.
A challenge to plan a meal around, My Free Box Whine is a truly random selection. Is this box Sirah? Is it Zin? Is it Port? Who Knows! What we do know is that unless it is the rarest of viands, and specifically to the drinker's individual taste, there are going to be complaints about this gift.

It seems that this year, the Atlantis chest division sux vintage whine is returning. Everyone who believed that the was no stock left after the initial delivery ran dry is in for a disappointment.

Discerning palates soon find this whine dreary and repetitive, especially if it is served with I topped the duty report the entire trip and high-end rewards only for top puzzlers cheeses on undeserving lazers crackers. The most common variety on the shelves seems to be the Familiar brand, but I have also seen versions with titles like Atlantean clothing and Atlantean furniture. Don't be fooled, these are exactly the same whine with a different label.

I've tried to alleviate the bitterness with some if you don't like it, then don't go fruit juice, but so far these whines seem immune to tampering (and reason).

Personally, I wouldn't offer a bottle like this even to my enemies, but it seems to be doing the rounds again.

Ah, it's been aging nicely for quite the time now, but I believe we currently have quite the stock of Blog Post Cabernet Sauvignon. This whine is aged carefully under the supervision of The Spyglass, where the environment is quite simply perfection when it comes to whine, imparting highly acidic notes that smooth to an entertaining finish. Simply magnificent!

Of recent note are our 2008 vintage Foraging Shall Ruin Ye and Ored was Better, Snakes Suck! Be on the look out for years to come!

We can now truly have RED whine. I anticipate it will be a rough start to the vintage, due to being so very young. May it mellow well over the years.

The Labor section of the vinyards has rebotted an older flavour for 2009: Increase the labor amount or the Oceans will die! It's good, and it's supply only seems to be increasing.

If I were to recommend other flavors from there, try a bitter Expert distilling is too hard, or a fizzy Alts are taking up all of the expert places.

Enjoy both at dinner parties, eaten alongside a block of Shopkeepers are tricking pirates with high expert pay that the shopkeeps never use.

I seem to have stumbled across a full bodied case of It's Not FAIR that anyone not ranked ULT won a familiar! cabernet savignon, deep and rich with a hint of jealousy to add a touch of spice to the after taste.

Also sitting in that dark cobwebby corner was a lone bottle of A Top Fine Performance Takes No Skill To Achieve! So It Should Not Be Considered a Competition! Shiraz which went amazingly well with Parrot steaks and Turtle soup.

This year's vintage of Subscription Oceans Don't Have Enough Labor is predictably bitter with muddled undertones about whose origins the vintners have many theories. Despite its harsh taste today, this whine only gets worse with age.

The coming vintage from Blue Ocean Vinyards is sure to be different as it will be produced in special reserve (labor) barrels. Whether this will improve the characteristics of the whine remains to be seen.

I've been wondering where the old Sailing Whine was... Has it completely gone? Or is there a new whine to replace it... On other news, I've heard through the bird, that the word on the street is, there are new whines in town! One of em is Banker Boutique , quite prestigious as a whine, actually.

I ran across a dusty old bottle of Modders Win Everything from the Missing Liz Whinery. Sip with caution, because this may cause certain feelings of "the good old days were better". Of course this feeling could be enhanced with a young red Poker Free Ocean that just came out recently. Enjoy with a light They Brought Back Pillaging cheese.

Ooooh! Those would make a lovely tasting trio with a slightly sour All I Ever Win is Parrots I found being handed out on the deck of a war brig last week. I sampled the other whines contributed to that discussion, but they all seemed to have run to vinegar.

But why should I shell out my money for this when I already have (New Feature) is ruining the game? They taste fairly similar.

Three Rings Has No Idea How to Run a Business is directly derived from (New Feature) is ruining the game, if you would believe such a finey blend can be made even fineier! The process is near the same, but in this case some extra grapes of wrath are added to the mix. This whine demands to be drank immediately, and any moment of delay in the process increases its acidity tenfold!


It requires your undivided attention, always. To look elsewhere for a second is irresponsible. To give time to another whine is unacceptable. To forget to tell this whine that it is the best, most important whine... it's simply bad business!

Another derived whine from the same whinery which adds its own distinctive flavour is the Update of [Old Feature] is ruining the game. This seems to be rather popular lately and drinks well with a seasonal plate of Dubs Are Too High.
