Some interesting stuff, but also supermarket wine, over the hill stuff ('93 Pinot Grigio, 05 roses, etc) and lots of liquor:

looks like after the better lots, the mixed lots were devised by an idiot (sorry, Morrells) .:)

What is a billionaire doing drinking Dewar's blended scotch? There are some fancy single malts, too, but it just seems so downscale. Interesting, thanks for the link.

I know a multi-millionaire who loves Budweiser and cheap cigars. Not everyone is into the things we are into.
