I found this forgotten picture on my cellphone. Took it in Los Angeles in June.

This is 1.75 liters of Jim, normal selling price $23, special price unfortunately not in the frame (you do need to be some type of cardholder member for the special price).

$23 is R180 to R200, depending on what the exchange rate is doing. For that, I can get 750ml of Jim locally.

    That’s a lot of Rand for Beam.

    As little as I know about your domestic politics, I have the impression that your politicians are as anxious as ours to supertax every small human pleasure. So i naturally wonder how much of the 200 Rand is earned by honest distillers and merchants and how much is government skim. To control “sin,” of course.

    Aaah yes, customs and excise. The only profitable part of government.
