    Nice, I would love to find a bottle of that. I have the Small Batch, Single Barrel, Full Proof, and I'm looking for a Bottled In Bond, Sweet Wheat, and Port Finish.

    I'm a big fan of the 1792 line, I haven't had that one but I'd be willing to bet it's pretty good.

    The sweet wheat is not particularly good. visa

    Yeah we discussed briefly at lunch, I want it mostly for the collection, but also my dad said he really likes it. He tried it before he got really into bourbon, so I don't know if he still feels that way, but I'd love to be able to get him a bottle since it's the one he can't find. You had said it's thin, which would make sense why a novice bourbon drinker would like it.

    Yeah, I have a bottle that I liked when I first got it and first got into bourbon, but now that I am more familiar it's good but not great

    Same here. I used to prefer Weller Special Reserve to Antique, but once I got into drinking higher proof bourbons like ECBP, WSR is to watery and I absolutely love Antique. tjsblue also blames me for his changing taste. However if I can finally convince him that Woodford sucks, I feel like I'm doing God's work.

    I think you’ve got some of your terms mixed up. Let’s start over and try again.

    So I’ve got one bottle of Elmer and one bottle of weller 12 for me. Sorry guys, the state of Oregon was not kind to my spot.

    I disagree, but I don't like it the way I used to.

    I never really disliked Larceny, but went to a blind tasting last night of 5 bottom shelfers, we’re talking like Benchmark and standard Evan Williams, and the one that scored dead last was Larceny. I was surprised.

    One of my favorites, but man is it dangerous. I can drink it like a 90 proof bourbon.

    I’m a big fan but every time I’ve had it it’s been after a few beers and then I wake up the next day with no recollection of much. Good thing I’m old and only drink it at home so I don’t have far to go.

    Just picked up a bottle of that 1792 BIB for goblue31602 and saw this store had four ECBP bottles priced at $70.

    How’s that price?

    Fair, under secondary. IF you find one in Kentucky they're typically in the 60's. Cheaper in Ohio but very hard to find. It's a damn good bottle of bourbon though.

    They're $69 plus tax in Alabama. Walked into a store the other day and they had 5+ bottles. Thought about grabbing one until I realized I have an unopened ECBP and an unopened EC store pick at home, alongside an opened EC store pick. Feel like they may have increased production lately.

    It is landing at a store near me tomorrow but they are allocating it so it looks like I’ll miss it this go around. Don’t have the time to stand in line at 8AM on a Saturday morning for a bottle of bourbon.

    Around 400 bottles of Old Fitz 13 were released here in PA, online only. Was sold out in 7 minutes. Crazy how quickly things go in these limited releases.
