If balsamic vinegar is a pantry staple for you like it is for me, then a key factor in your b.v. selection is quantity. For that alone, TJ’s offers a size that will serve long and well.
I’m not a balsamic vinegar connoisseur, so I can’t say honestly that TJ’s version is better or worse than any others. I’d love to hear from anyone who is more attuned to the nuances of balsamic quality.
Aesthetically, though, it can run with the pack, I think. The bottle resembles a Chianti container. That offers potential shabby chic/70’s retro decorating potential – future candlestick holder, anyone?
