    Thoughts, opinions?

    I see an online store selling 275ml bottles for US$3.99.

    Harveys?

    I have a bottle to drink at some point so will let you know

    Not a bad price to be fair

    I paid the equivalent of $3 + delivery direct from Harveys

    A good English style barely wine IMHO. Price may seem a bit high but I'm sure its super rare Stateside and even here its about £2 (approx $3.20) a bottle so the mark up isn't too high.

    I see they also carry Timothy Landlord...that pretty much seals the deal.

    Just cracked this open and I have to say I'm quite impressed by it!
    A great VFM old style barley wine which I gave 3.8/5 to.
    Of note the bottle I had was badged as 1952-2012 to commemorate the queens diamond jubilee. Says it is the original recipe from 1952 and is at 7.5% ABV where as other recent versions were 8.1 - 8.3 % ABV.
    Not sure whether the bottles you have over in the states might be older ones?

    No problem. I actually pass through this area a few times a year but don't very often visit VC. I'll have to give it a run-through in the next couple months. Cheers
