ok, so i remembered, surprisingly. this is what i got off of the bottles.

Speyside, aged 20yrs. Sherry Cask finish. not sure if Alexander and company mean anything to you guys, and imported by Misa Imports. there was also something on there about Texas, IIRC. that bottle goes for $44.99.

there's also a Macallan, aged 15yrs, also with Alexander and company on the bottle. that goes for $49.99.

not sure if that's a good deal or any better than what you guys are drinking, but thought i'd share that.

both are single malts too, i believe.

That is a good deal for the Macallan. I think the regular price for a 5th of the 15 year old is about $80-90. That 20 year old Speyside might be over $100.

As I'm sure you can imagine, I'm going to be all over that 15 year old Macallan next time I'm at Costco - like maybe later this afternoon! Thanks for the great news. LOL

The Kirkland Bourbon is Jim Beam Black.

My research has been duplicated more times than I can remember....

Good to hear you guys will be able to make use of that! Hahaha.

phxmuni, not sure if that's a good or bad thing. Since i don't really drink and am not familiar with the various liquors, but hoping it's a good thing for you. Up until you wake up the next morning with a pounding headache, yeah?

I tried the Macallan last week-end, I used to drink Chevas, I had 4 shots with a water chaser and had to ask my grand-daughter to tape the 49er game because I was sinking with the sunset! I still think my Chevas is smooter...but then I have been on that kick a looong time. Mcallan is a "very good" scotch, and I've been drinking scotch all my life...it is an acquired taste, and that taste was there.

Someone has to do it, grueling, repetitive work. :)

Macallan is sweeter than Glenlivet, 12 year Glenlivet usually sells for $32-$34, really good is the 18 year Presentation @$55-60 per bottle. For all my kidding I limit myself to one shot sipped two or three times a week, so a bottle lasts a good while.

"The two best-selling single malt whiskies in the world, The Glenlivet and Glenfiddic, come from
Speyside. Speyside has the greatest number of distilleries of any of the whisky-producing areas of Scotland.
Speyside whiskies can generally be classified as light and grassy (e.g. Glenlivet) or rich and sweet, (e.g. Macallan)." Source: Wikipedia

Flaminpen probably tasted the sweetness in Macallan vs. Chevas.

AIG should be out of business and all their charming employees on the street.

It's disgusting enough to realize these <scumbags have maintained their lofty positions at our expense, but even more disgusting to me is the fact that the politicians are so easily bought off. We expect these people to look after our interests and they do everything but.

There is a ton of duplication in that list, but your message is valid, the only question is would they be willing sponsors, pass out tickets to employees? I just don't think San Jose is that gung-ho on baseball to split their Giant's fan base and be able to support the A's without the Alameda and Contra Costa fan base. Depends on the amount of die-hard fans who will follow the A's to San Jose or Santa Clara county.

Who the HEII made you an expert on San Jose and Silicon Valley, do you even fathom to know what you're talking about? Everyone knows these companies mentioned are mostly world wide. Some are owned by foreign companies, some are Internet based, some are national, some are local to California.And they wouldn't even exist if they weren't making money, some square foot of space goes for $112, some higher, and very few under $85 for high tech space ANYWHERE in Silicon Valley. I'm sure they could afford a brand new stadium of any size, just like the Niners in Santa Clara. However that doesn't mean poopers if there is no fan base to work with. It would make my travel only 50 miles as opposed to now, as far as you travel to a game.

By the way; the IRS is so far up foreign, off shore bank's asse(t)s that it is getting harder and harder for anyone to find any banks who deals with just an account number and the privacy Swiss banks USED to be known for pertaining to the ownership of those accounts.

San Jose has been selling out HP Pavilion for the Sharks for years and I'm sure there were few real hockey fans in San Jose before the Sharks arrived. It seems San Jose residents appreciate having a major league franchise and tend to support it.

You're certainly right about that...however their Giant's AAA franchise doesn't draw well, I have always wondered why. I suppose you have to be more of a baseball fan rather than a franchise fan?

Stan my Man is gone at 92...RIP indeed for him and Charlie Weaver who was 82!

I consider myself to be a religious person mainly because I come from a long line of ministers and Theological professors...
I just wonder, since both Stan and Earl died on Saturday, did they meet and greet in the Great Beyond?

The Giants' AAA franchise is the Fresno Grizzlies (Pacific Coast League). The San Jose Giants are A ball (California League).
