That really isn't all that expensive. You have to keep in mind that it was a 6 liter bottle, so it is only $104,700.83 per liter. Or, to make it more palatable, only $186.00 per 1 ounce drink. Anyone who would buy a $628,000 bottle surely wouldn't begrudge their friends a $186.00 drink, don't you think?
Reading a Brit beer and whiskey magazine online recently they discussed a new blended Scotch from the Famous Grouse people. It's called Snow Grouse. After a long discussion of its merits, they compared it favorably with Coors Light. And you know what that means.
As Coors Light Beer was described to me once many years ago; Drinking Coors Light is like making love in a canoe. It's F'ing near water.
