Clubmans has always been kind of the standard IMO

Unique because they can't hand age two the same way I assume? They look gorgeous, how much?

Clubmans is indeed pretty traditional, and a good value from what I remember.
I haven't used their talc, but I still occasionally use their special reserve aftershave.

I'll admit, I've never had the bantai civet coffee, but understand the process of using the civet animals to eat and break down the enzymes of the beans. That being said, is it actually good coffee, or just exclusive?

It's different. If I had not gotten it as a gift, I doubt very much that I would have spent $75 for a pound of it. I have, however, spent 8x's that on an ounce of very good sinsemilla, I am, after all, a connoisseur.

I was just posting a link to kopi luwak, another civet type coffee. I've never tried either, but I hear the taste is much better than other coffees. Supposed to taste like caramel.

That's certainly much more than the $30 most people spend on the green.

Who gave you a gift of $75/lb coffee?
