I went for a vodka today. Yup, I'm a sucker for the buxom young lass giving away t-shirts with a purchase. Devotion Vodka infused with blood oranges.

well as far as i know these are very rare. i cant find them anywhere on the internet. some websites used to sell them for 400 pounds or more and now they are sold out. maybe one day though. if anyone had tasted the macallan 18 1976 , i would like to know how does it compare to the recent one.
