I’m looking.  Haven’t found it yet, but I’m hearing it’ll most likely drop next week.

And then there’s this guy.


Yeah, he’s an arrogant little bastard, but he’s awfully tasty and will be hitting your store shelves soon.  Read all about it.

That’s it for this week my friends.  Plenty to keep your whistles wet and your cellars stocked.
