I've always wanted to try that stuff but now I can't seem to find it anywhere. I used to always see it on the shelves at liquor stores and just gloss over it. What's it like?

It’s not at all common on the shelves where I live. I’ve only seen it in one store where I live. You get some heat on the front end but it mellows after that. The corn really comes through since it has to have 80% corn in its mashbill…it’s simple and light and there’s some vanilla and oak to it. I will say it’s very unique and if you’re looking to for something different from the high wheat and rye stuff, it’s with a try..and at $15 if you don’t like it your wallet won’t mind too much

Picked up a 6pk of Shark's Block McLaren Vale Shiraz, Black Wattle Mt Benson Shiraz and Giaconda & Chapoutier Ergo Sum.

Looking forward to trying the Ergo Sum, as I have heard good things about it.

Soooooo it seems that there was a bit of a glitch this week in our state run liquor commission distribution system: one store got 10 cases of Weller. Only 4 stores in the same area shared 16 cases or so. Weird.

I picked up one case - my lucky day.
Will likely share with some friends... don't know what the price is in the US, but I paid about 30usd per bottle. Great value, imo.

This is my first bottle of port wine ever. I'm a newbie when it comes to wine in general (especially red wine, not a fan so far). I've seen so many cigar smokers who drink port and it's supposed to be one of the best (alcoholic) beverage pairings with cigars. I've tried it and I actually quite enjoy it!

Nice! I've not tried port as a pairing either, must give that a go.

@Lycosa Taylor 10 is a good one to start off with!  Tawny is a lot easier to the casual port drinker than a Vintage Port.  Before you kill that bottle, you may want to consider picking up a Taylor 20 to compare it too.  20 doesn't always mean better.  They're both different and "scratch different itches".

If you like port after both, I would move onto a 10 year Madeira.  Similar to port, but more acidity and basically an infinite shelf life.  Tawny port will last about a month open.  Madeira is perfectly suited to cigars; more so than port.  Port is historically more associated to the British, while Madeira is more associated to the United States.
