6 x G85 750ml for $80 each
3 x G85 1.5L for $160 each

The former is a very good price in the US. The latter is an outstanding price just about anywhere, I think. Thanks to jdaw1 for alerting me to the deal!

80$ is more then i paid for my F85s.

You seem to have it pretty sweet over there if that's the case.. When a T94 costs $120.. It's certainly more than that here.

Auction vs retail. Almost all of my purchasing is at retail over the internet.

Average price of F85 and G85 is pretty similar at retail, and typically ranges between $85 and $90. I'll buy either at $80 because that's as low as I've seen either at retail for a while.

I've seen G85 as low as $65 at auction, but wasn't in a position to strike when I saw it. Unlike G-man, I don't haunt the auction scene so I don't get the same great deals that he and SushiNorth find.

2011 Taylor

Just ordered an Imperial en primeur.

Not sure who is going to drink it, as it will not really be ready for another 30-40 years or so.

Have you children? That’s a fantastic thing to inherit, or be given, to drink when it has 40-60 years on the clock.

Just one child - a college aged daughter (my wife and I got it right the first time). Thus it will probably almost ready for the wedding of one of her kids (she has none yet of which I am aware), or my funeral (a couple of friends have already volunteered the service of their livers if it is served at my funeral). For it to be perfect, though, 30-40 years might be too soon........ Indeed, if it is as good as hoped, it would be just about right for celebrating England's 1,000th birthday.

According to Wikipedia England became a unified state in 927, so, unless you are in possession of a modified Delorean sports car you may find it difficult to use it for that particular party.

I stand corrected.

In which case, the 1,000th anniversary of (French) Norman conquest.

Funny.. Every time I insist on trying to buy some Malvedos from Sainsbury[']s online, this arrives as a substitute. I say yes, of course...

1 bottle Graham's Quinta dos Malvedos 2001.
Morrison's have it reduced to £23, although first time I've seen it in Dundees only Morrisons.

Have ordered:

One case of 2011 Fonseca bottles
One case of 2011 Fonseca magnums

Sadly, it will probably be my daughter than drinks them; I can only hope that it has a positive influence around her choices regarding my later years in life.

Respect to Glenn's purchase of two Nacionals!

My purchases are more mundane and are not for me but for the wee'un, unwittingly lucky to have been born in 2011.

- Fonseca '11 x 6
- Warre '11 x 6
- Fonseca '11 dmag
- Taylor '11 dmag

Will top up with more Fonseca and a dozen each of Taylor, Graham and Noval. That should see the blighter through for a while.
