    I am here to ask, can anything that you can ingest, ANYTHING, be worth anything near these kind of prices. On a smaller scale, I have compared a $300 bottle of Dom Perignon to a good Napa Valley product, (Korbel, or Chandon) $30. In NO WAY are they worth the difference in price!

  8. Ferdi says:
