Mmmmmm Port

Way back when, I didn't used to drink wine. I didn't drink white wine, I didn't drink red wine, and there's no way in HELL you'd have convinced me to drink that wine-like THING they call Port.

And then came the husband, who's very MUCH a red wine drinker. Which as you know in relationships, turned ME into a red wine drinker. And then somehow TOGETHER, we became Port drinkers too.

But let's be clear here - we ain't wine snobs, we ain't gonna go all chatty about the SMOOTH finish or the HINTS of oak or whatever the hell it is wine snobs talk about. We're gonna talk about TASTE and COST. And when it comes down to TASTE and COST, we found a good cheapy that's actually quite impressive.

I introduce you to OUR fave, Whisker's Blake. And by fave, I mean, the one that's ALWAYS in the liquor cabinet for a quick hit, late-night, with some ever-so-yummy dark chocolate. By no means is this a fabulous port to SHOW OFF at your fancy schmancy dinner party, but by no means is it something you CAN'T serve to your friends.

Available for about $20 in Canada, when we serve up some Whisker's Blake, most of our friends have been quite SHOCKED that it's only $20. A great drink and a TOTAL steal - two very wobbly thumbs up from me.

I take it your thumbs are wobbly beCAUSE you've imbibed, and that this isn't a lukewarm endorsement.

I love the name, too. Gonna click on and get me some. They'd better deliver!

We can drink together, separated only by several states and one international boundary.
