it's hard to pass up $7 for a beer and a shot when I know I'll be at the bar for 2+ hours.
So if you like “finished” bourbon at all, Barrell Dovetail might be the best I’ve ever had out of that category. It’s not cheap, but it’s one of the first bottles I’ve had in a long time that’s over $75 that I thought “yea that’s worth it”
I would, yes.
Yes, and yes. I don’t know if it’s worth the price, but it’s pretty good. The Single Barrel stuff at Full Proof is even better.
Well there are 2 sitting at a store near union square SF.
Unfortunately, raffle prices are usually 10% or more higher than going secondary rate. I’ve tried to find those little loopholes and the opportunities are few and far between.
Well shit, I was in Santa Clara 4 days ago, I would’ve made that trip
Raffles are basically selling secondary.
Drinking Blanton’s tonight for the first time in a while and it’s a little disappointing. I’ve been drinker mostly Barrel Proof and finished bourbons lately so it’s probably not a fair comparison, but I’m not loving it
The 2018 Little Book is good but not $100 good. Not sure if I reported back yet or not.
Weller SR better than the first go around.
Have you had the C318 EC Barrel Proof yet?
Where’d you find it?
Local spot keeps getting it in. $22/bottle
It won't knock your socks off but for the price I'm a big fan. It's about 22.99 locally
With 2018/2019 bourbon prices it’s a great value.
Where do you live? Or would you mind shiping me a bottle or two? Happy to help you find something you’re looking for here in PA.
Could prob ship some. Need to see if it’s stock next time I check. Been hit or miss the last few trips but I could have bought 4 bottles when I got this one.
Would appreciate it, if you don’t mind. Anything you’ve been looking for?
I’m pretty new with bourbon to be honest. Would have to think about it. I know beer. Bourbon is a different story.
Currently drinking away the soreness I have from deadlifts yesterday, seems to be working. See how I am in the morning.
Anything beer you’re looking for? PA is even better for beer.
I don’t even consider it when I have 5 bottles of antique sitting there waiting to be drank or drunk or drunkus or drunki. Maybe I should slow down.
I want some antique, too, damn. Any you want to send my way? :)
A couple are spoken for and it is one of my favorites. But if you have a trade, I’m game.
How’d you get so many? What would you want?
Edit: something like an EH Taylor small batch? I can get my hands on that for about $38 here.
goblue31602 told me about a place that would have them and I brought my wife and FIL. And he found me a few. And then I found one randomly. They must have released a shitload in Cinci all at once.
Edit: did I mention they are 1.75L.
Cincy is getting some almost every week right now. This is the first year I can remember where it has been this way.
Unfortunately it shows up and disappears quickly so you just have to catch a place as soon as they get a shipment
I like to go antiquing
I see special reserve pretty regularly next time I see some I’ll pick it up and ship you one.
Nice work sir
Thank you! What do you see it for?
Dear god. So, what would you want in a trade?
My secret weapon is my retired father that I got into bourbon. He hunts it for me.
No hunting in PA unfortunately, unless you count checking the website daily.
Anyone ever hunt Boston? Will be there next week and not sure where to try.
Usually like $25ish
Great. 19.99 in PA but never on the shelf.
Yeah I’m not 100% sure on price because I haven’t bought it in a while but I know I didn’t pay more than $30 for the last one I bought.
We have a few honey holes that get shipments every Thursday morning. tjsblue has inlaws that happen to live very close to one so I tipped him off.
Most places have no problems telling you when they get their shipments, we're also on a few newsletters that announce when they'll release a rare one. All places are 1 bottle each.of the good stuff.
Sippin on this and watchin' Road House.
Now that’s a combo
Buzz that bottle of Blantons i found is still your call. Dump date 11/28/18, if that means anything to you. Let me know.
I’ve had the A and B releases, not C yet. Love all of them since 2017A
The C is excellent. Definitely recommend.
Which bar is your local spot?
Picking this up now for 79.99 in NJ
I think one of the breaking bourbon guys named it one of his three favorites of the year, unfortunately I haven’t seen any in the wild.
