  • It is possible to order online and that's pretty much the only way I buy ... sweeter one. Get Malmsey or Bual. Malmsey is good because that's what they used to drown the kids in Shakespeare's Richard III. They're all good to drink though!Those names though, are based on the grape varieties used and the vinification, they're not the names of pr... Read More

  • Cossart Gordon & Co. Bual Madeira 5 Years Old Medium Rich NV

    Snoothrank:

    Well, it's a fortified wine, so it's thick and syrupy. I was excited to try Madeira, but it's just too thick and viscous and cloying for me. Reminds me of a liquid sticky toffee pudding. Enticing in theory, not so much in practice. Though, my Madeira-obsessed table mate praised it highly, so I think Madeira lovers might enjoy. Read More

  • Okay, we usually don't make brisket for Rosh Hashanah, but this year the wife saw a recipe that she liked with plums and port.  So what to go with it?  Earlier, we had planned a pre-Inquisition Spanish-Jewish meal, and I was all hyped up for Spanish wine, but now I'm kind of dubious about tempranillo with this. So, Rhones?  Something higher in a... Read More
