I can't stand when people close their bottles with wax. Bass Philip is a serial offender and last night I had to open a Liqueur Muscat by Kay Brothers by removing the wax. First of all, I didn't know what closure was underneath, so you don't know where to cut the wax. As it turned out, it had a port bottle closure. I had cut the wax too high and had to do it again. At this time, I lost control of my knife which brushed against my forearm. I could have killed myself! This morning I have a five centimetre long red stripe on my arm.
The drink was pretty good, but I didn't need this sort of reminder. There is no need for wax on wine bottles!
