I'm impressed! I had the impression- obviously wrongly- that you were on a limited budget lol

Anyone who drinks enough Blue on a regular basis  is not poor by any means.

I buy a Blue every month. But that's pretty much my only alcohol expenditure

I had an unexpected instance of receiving what I believe was a counterfeit bottle of Johnnie Walker.  I’d never tried anything except red label.  I decided to try a "Double Black". The first clue was right in my face.  It was in sale for ₽1650.  This was ₽100 less than the same in a box.  I just made the assumption the box had been damaged, so they offered a discount.  When I got it home, I noticed the tamper proof plastic device was absent.  

I'm not that fussy about taste, so I couldn’t tell any difference, but it about as tasty as the red label.  I'm convinced it was a fake.

Just like in this video, most of the reviews I've heard about the Blue label, seem to indicate it's overpriced for what it is. I don't really know.

Rustan's at Ayala had Bruichladdich, a very nice Islay scotch.

I was in the Johnnie Walker store in Miami airport over Christmas time, they had the 50 year old was going for $3,600 USD.

Pretty cool little store, that had taste testing if you liked

There is a difference usually with any of the expensive stuff if you're sipping (except grappa $50.00 a shot - still lighter fluid) but I'm not a sipper - more like a gulper

After a bottle of Boone's Farm ($0.99 / $0.79 on sale) / a 6 pack of Red White & Blue - $0.89 (made by PBR ) who cared?

Didn't say I didn't the appreciate fine stuff when I have sipped - have found for me though, that like Coors  - sometimes the hype didn't live up to reality - especially in wines :tease:
