    So I can’t remember what the Pappy 10 tastes like because it’s been so long since I had it but the mixture of OWA and W12 is really good.

    In fact I don’t love either one of them on their own but they’re actually delicious mixed.

    Poor Man’s Pappy is actually pretty legit. I try to keep a decanter of it on the bar.

    They usually go out a few weeks later once they account for credit cards not working, etc.

    I can get EHT single barrel for $69.99 right now. That’s probably the most interesting, harder to find bottle I have access to at the moment.

    Also, if anyone has a GTS, I think I’ll try trade one of my Bookers 30th for it.

    No. I mean buy what you want ultimately but that's more than double retail.

    There also got six bottles of EC Barrel Proof for $150, that seems like secondary market pricing.
     
  16. Detlef Schrempf

    No, about double what you should pay for it, assuming this is a 750 ml.
     
  17. Detlef Schrempf

    That’s a $65 retail bottle and about 60 more than secondary that they’re asking.

    Yes, unfortunately had to trade bottles roughly worth $600 secondary to obtain my first one about a year or so ago, but with the way its gone up I dont have too bad of buyer's remorse. It was probably in my top 3 bourbons/ryes that I've ever tasted.

    On the bottle is says a letter and some numbers. The current release has a C in front. The numbers represent the month and year of release I think.

    So my guy asked me Saturday if I’d be willing to taste for the Eagle Trace Barrel pick when his rep comes by next week.

    Didn’t know they let you actually taste samples but that’s what he told me.

    Let’s see if he comes through.......

    No, I heard chatter in here about it. My store got that, the craft series and the new year. The others worth trying too?

    Not sure but I absolutely love the dovetail, one of the more unique finishes on a bourbon i can remember, and I mean that in a good way.

    When Aria was developing its Angel’s Envy Aria Select we sent a team of 5 to the distillery to taste several barrels. Was fun.

    Binny's is a usual stopping point for me. There are plenty around Chicago, I believe, and they are pretty well regarded when it comes to their store pick. They're a larger chain, but I've had friends that have gone in and chat with the workers and come out with an ETL, so you may have luck in that regard. If not, you can't go wrong with one of their barrel picks.

    The Dovetail is better than the New Year for sure, but the BCS 15 is better than all, yet also 3x the price so take that into account.

    Don't think it really matters since you aren't visiting very often. Just kind of shoot the shit with them for a bit, and ask if they have anything interesting bourbon wise. If not, just snag one of their store picks.

    Lol, no way I'll even have a shot at this, but not sure I'd be okay spending that kind of money anyway on a bottle of bourbon.

    Have been really tempted to just say fuck it and buy a bottle as I've heard really good things about it. Just haven't jumped on the opportunity yet.

    It’s a bit spicy for a bourbon. If you like spicy it’s a quality drink.

    Yep. I would recommend trying it first for sure if you’re dropping the $. You can find it in Bourbon places.
