A gift suggestion? In which case, let me tell you/Santa that I have been VERY good this year
Drink it on 1st Jan, drinking window open, problem solved. Not that I’d be opening this just yet myself, unless I had several bottles .
At £175 a bottle.
Regretfully I have yet to reach it’s purchasing window
Though in fairness, more or less the market price for the wine. You could get it slightly cheaper elsewhere, but mostly being sold in cases of 6 or 12.
I think I might end up out the window if I bought that…I’m still recovering from the interrogation following the 30 year old Speyside purchase…
Aaahhh… Defenestration, a common method of revenge and murder in Central Europe, especially the Czech republic.
Little known fact No. 273
Ah I came across that word some while ago and couldn’t stop chuckling that we actually had a word for such a thing! Language can be a wonderful comedian at times!
And still unnervingly current in Russia, among those who don’t see eye-to-eye with Putin.
The ‘Defenestration of Prague’ was one of those things, like the ‘Diet of Worms’, that featured in lists of historical ‘dates’ we used to learn at school. Often it was only some years later that we actually learned what they meant.
I might think about opening my first bottle for Christmas 2025 but more like Christmas 2035 - not that I have any!
