    A friend who had a bottle and tried her husbands offered to sell me hers for $129. Can't decide.

    I mean it's MSRP, if you don't want it, I'll buy it from them.

    I tried it... it is just ok for that price. I’d sell it to you if I didn’t know you’d just put it on secondary. :wink:

    Ha! It has a spot next to my 11 year. I just want it to add to the collection of bottles that I won't drink (until I get drunk one night and open them by mistake)

    I'm going to buy it and talk about how cool it is that I have it and you don't and not open it because it costs a lot and isn't my favorite.

    I hate you. Been on the lookout for W12 (for non astronomical prices) for over a year.

    Great finds though, dickhead. :awesomeface:

    I got a bottle of 12 before I knew anything and promptly drank half and now sit on it because no way I’m getting it again.

    Guess who is getting that 1L bottle of W12? Someone who helps others in this thread get good bottles. You make your own karma. :) it was $38 by the way.

    Hi! Yes, I'm still on the hunt for W12. Or really any Weller.

    Speaking of, I've got the official TMB prohibition juice shipping box. I should be making a stop today or tomorrow, I'll let you guys know if I can get anything good to ship.

    There's always the 26 bottles of ECBP there...

    I'll take it off your hands if your offering it up. Been on the look for any Weller here in NC for a while now with no luck.

    Good news and bad news. Good news is I can run over today and try to snag you a bottle. Bad news is Ohio just raised the price from $29.99 to $39.99 today.

    A local liquor store gets it somewhat regularly, and sometimes I'm able to make it over there and get one, sometimes not.

    :chatzy: I am so excited.

    Haven't tried it yet. Actually having a couple friends over next week and we are going to sit down and try a few different bottles and the Dovetail is on the list. As above, I am so excited.

    Curious where you found that? They popped up 5-6 years ago and have been one of my go-tos ever since, although I'm not the connoisseur you guys in this thread are. I didn't think they were that widely distributed.

    If you spend lots of money at Colonial they will elevate you on their list for rare bottles. Last year around November I found a couple EC 18s, some cask strength limited Belle Meade, and two bottles of George T. Stagg. Found some various Pappy/ Old Rip but it was way over priced. That being said, find a local store and keep going in until they know you. That’s probably your only hope. I’ve been buying exclusively from a place in Sherwood with the hopes of getting a bottle or two this fall.

    If you feel like sharing any store recommendations, feel free. Hoping to find a honey hole somewhere in central AR but I’m sure they’re few and far between. Only places I’ve been that are worth anything are Colonial (most things overpriced though) and Crossroads in Bryant (best selection of Barrell whiskeys I’ve seen. They have batches 14-19 and dovetail)

    Palarm liquor in Mayflower had two bottles of GTS on the shelf for 99.99 last year so I know they get the goods. Also seem to have ECBP out pretty often for 59.99. I go to 107 Liquor in Sherwood bc they have several barrel picks all the time. They have a pretty good beer selection too and it’s a small store. Lake Liquor in Maumelle is a nice spot too and it’s right off I-40. Their manager is pretty savvy about bourbon and they have some good barrel picks. That’s as far as I’ve branched out bc I try to keep my business at a couple places.

    Despite better judgement I bought the Black Maple Hill Bourbon for 94$. Such Awful. Very Regret. Much Sad.

    I had old black maple hill back when it was KY juice.... this bottle will never get drunk unless I feed it to people with coke.

    Picked up a bottle of Old Forester 1910 last night. It was an impulse buy while I perused the liquor store shelf as I waited for my wife to finish up in the shop next door, and my after the fact research suggests I overpaid at $67 for the bottle. Nevertheless, I cracked it open when I got home and enjoyed it very much.

    Overpaying $15 for that bottle wouldn’t ruin my day/ drink. Big fan of the 1910. Basically all the others I’m not a huge fan of.

    The eagle has landed, and has been furiously unpacked. I did receive a surprise sample that is unmarked. Is it bourbon? A dehydrated person's urine? I just don't know.

    Come on down to Carrollton Beverage and ask for Justin. Tell him the doctor that always comes in wearing scrubs sent you.
