This just in from the Hillsdale Liquor store, where proprietor Greta Karimi shared the following story after I asked if that $308 tequila on yonder bottom shelf was the most expensive bottle in the shop.
Yup, now that the store is out of the $380 Scotch.
But the really expensive stuff is $1600 cognac that sells in her husband's Lake Oswego store. That would be Remy Martin Louis XIII.
The story goes that former Trailblazer Damon Stoudamire, famed Wilson High School alumnus, once came in to buy a new bottle of the brandy after a friend had finished off his old one.
Seems his buddy used the cognac to lace his Coke (apparently the kind you drink).
Fortunately, Damon could afford to be amused.
