The Trapiche TSM sells for $46 before tax. There is no way. No way. But it was $10 off recently at BC Liquor, and we picked up a bottle. Light up a Cohibo.
Big, juicy, plummy on the front with a back end loaded up in tobacco leaf, medicine cabinet and nuanced spice. Just hugely appealing, and umpteen times better than the Malbec we often drink when we feel like Malbec which is, you know, rare. (We referenced a Difficult People Malbec joke last year, here; hey Arthur Tack: Stuff it.)
Just goes to show what a Malbec could be.
Price: A way, way, way too expensive $46 if not on sale.
Market Liquidity: Pack leader (in its pack).
