Picked up a bottle of Piper-Heidsieck at a steep discount last night and had a delightful time.

Good choices, too. I actually like M&C a lot.

La Sombra Sofisticada said...

A fine combination.

Champagne and Evola sounds perfect. Cheers!

Tomislav Sunic is great! I'm reading his Homo Americanus myself.

I tried to buy champagne today and they were cleared out. Rubbish government-controlled liquor stores we have here, oh you'd hate it!

I have many of these, but what is that Hendrick's gin book in the background?

1 and 5 remind me how I appreciate (or fear?)how darwinistic and most of all corrupt the effing badass russians are. Btw, Darwinism really is my thing
With champagne its only bollinger and my local ordering farm where the family orders for generations (it just wont be called champagne since from germany...). Prosit und have a good read.
