Should I purchase this wine?

I friend of mine has about 130 gallons of a rare sherry wine in his basement, and he wants me to check it out. I'm going to head down there later this evening, but I want to know if any wine experts could give any second opinions. Thoughts?

    130 gallons?

    Even if it's good wine, that's an amount of wine that'll grow tiring after awhile.

    "Rare sherry wine" doesn't tell me anything at all. Are you thinking of buying all of it or just a little bit for personal use? If the latter, taste it, and if you like it, buy some. If the former, no. It's a terrible idea.

    Can you drink 656 bottles of sherry before it turns sour, *and* enjoy it enough to justify whatever you end up paying for it? If yes, then get on a liver transplant list and go for it.

    Kinda seems like a silly idea to me.

    Uh-huh.

    Is it by chance, 130 gallons of Amontillado sherry? If it is, definitely go and check it out. It will definitely be worth it for that rare of a vintage.

    Amontillado sherry isn't rare in the least.

    I have never heard of wine described by the gallon before.

    What exactly is it? 'Rare' could be lots of things.

    Not at all, I didn't get it at first either. But you're often prominent in H&A so I found your helpfulness amusing :)

    Hope he responds with how it went soon.

    the GOP shouldn't give a rats ass about them since they won't vote for them. If someone won't vote for you they might as well not exist.

    Wet Mortar really screws up the wifi signal... I don't think we're gonna be hearing about the wine. o_O
