Way back when we lived in Pennsylvania with Virginia in my territory, I'd regularly swing through D.C. on my way home....for one very good reason. If there is one shop that I dearly miss it is Calvert Woodley on Connecticut Avenue...near the northwest border of the District. The wines and whiskies stocked are of legend, and their prices are the lowest I've ever found....and that includes New Hampshire though there is no comparison ... NH doesn't have 10% of the choices regularly found on the shelves at C-W. The C-W website lists their prices...caution, they may make you weep. They are now offering mail-order :!:

Virginia cops made a living catching folks sneaking into Virginia after expeditions to that shop.

I just checked the C-W website. Fair selection, but no better than my regular liquor store. Prices were same to a couple bucks higher. I might stop in if I'm ever in DC. until then I won't be ordering mail order.

I looked, too. CW doesn't sell Ezra. No taste at all, but what would you expect from DC these days?

On the subject of cheese...if you like aged Gouda, give this place a try: https://www.mariekegouda.com/shop-online

I can recommend some of the flavors, but everyone is different...
