    Re: Marc tasting note

    Jake, your notes prompted me to dole out a few drops of some Marc de Bourgogne that I purchased about 5 years ago in Auxerre, France. Mine is pure sultana raisins. I'll be sad to see the end of this bottle... sadly there's only a few drops left.

    Re: Marc tasting note

    Sultana--that's a perfect descriptor that I overlooked. Although the Ropiteau is a little drier/higher-toned than a raisin descriptor by itself suggests.

    I was in Austin, TX today and spied a bottle of the ultra-rare DRC Marc from 1978 (birth year!)...I just couldn't pull the $270 trigger....

    Re: Mostly non-bourbon finds the last few days


    -Suntory Japanese malt whiskey, squat bottle, no age listing, boxed, tax-stamped, bottle in mint condition because it's been in a box forever.
    I just picked a bottle of Suntory, but I can't seem to get much info about this expression. My bottle may be the same as yours , just without the box. The bottle it most resembles is here:
    http://www.suntory.co.jp/cgi-bin/wow...0&prodid=14310

    but my bottle doesn't use the words OLD or MALT. It just says, "Suntory Whisky, A blend of Rare, Selected Whiskies" It's 86.8 proof and the bottle has metric & English measurement (750 ml/25.4 fl.oz.) and a tax stamp.
    If anyone knows more about this please let me know. Perhaps I should put the question is the Foreign whiskey section?
