Only 100 made, so get your bottle before it is too late.

How many people would you need to drink that if you gave everyone a solid couple oz pour? I'm not a math guy....

But you gotta admit that if you walked into the next BerserkerFest with that, you would get some attention, no? [berserker.gif]

Based on 750 ml experience, about 3 of those 100 bottles are corked. I wonder if they individually test the corks used for these torpedo-sized bottles, to reduce that number?

I shed a tear whenever a magnum is corked. If a 15L was corked I think I might be drowning in it.

I'm astonished that they made a hundred of these. As above, I'm too scared of spoilage to be interested in these big bottles.

I own a mag I don't know when/where I'll serve, can't imagine what I would do with that.

This could be Matt Harris's bottle . . . I saw one of these in person at his cellar (I think he has 3 or 5 of these.) Freakishly huge. I asked him "When are you going to open one of these?" He replied, "Dunno, for my daughter 18th birthday? Or wedding?" I don't even think a 200 people wedding would finish this . . . haha

The original post on Wine Bid implied that the bottle was purchased directly from d'Yquem.
