    Drinking some Angels Envy Rye tonight.

    This is a good bottle imo.

    I’d be happy to, just a heads up shipping from here is going to cost you I’m going to guess $20’ish from here (east coast), but I’ve got 4 bottles at my house and can get it regularly so I’m more than happy to send you one for cost + shipping if you want to shoot me a pm.

    1792 Small Batch was not bad for the price. Made for a nice old fashioned, forgot how much I love that drink.

    That’s the rum cask aged?

    Yes, all Angel's Envy is finished in different types of casks, with the finished rye being in rum barrels.

    1792 Small Batch, Larceny, Jefferson, Elijah Craig, and Four Roses Small Batch are all great <=$30 bottles IMO.

    I had a maple walnut old fashioned at a bar around here and it was probably the best mixed drink I've ever had. I bought some black walnut bitters and while I can't make it the exact same, it's still pretty damn good from time to time.

    Daniel Ocean same here, happy to send you one as I have a few in my stock right now. But, same deal with shipping from here. Check fedex and see what it’ll cost you and if it’s worth it to you.

    This one is interesting. Not a bourbon of course, but just about anything Barrell puts out is worth a shot. Not sure if i like it or not yet

    Barrell could do no wrong but I’ve been unimpressed with a couple barrel picks I’ve bought of theirs recently and that skunked dovetail was straight booty. It’d be a lot easier to accept the occasional flop if they retailed for $50 rather than 75-100

    Email their customer service and ask them if the bottle was shit. They're pretty good at quick responses. Bet they'd hook you up for your troubles.

    I told Barrell that I got a dud bottle of Dovetail and now they’re sending me a replacement. Pretty awesome. Kudos to whoever suggested I do that

    Guys what should my celebratory whiskey be when we beat Auburn on Saturday?

    Likewise what swill should I drown my sorrows to in the VERY unlikely event we lose.

    Top of my bourbon is Thomas H Handy, Mitchers 10 year, Little book, Elmers, and probably a couple more in that price range.

    I do have a weird amount of expensive Irish whiskey, Middleton Very Rare, Retronaut 17 year, 21 year old Bushmills.

    I poured a glass of George T Stagg to start the Clemson game yesterday. Better to enjoy it first instead of hammered drunk at the end of the game.

    Gotta say, Dovetail is great at numbing the pain from a shitty loss. Have a feeling I’ll be drinking plenty of it this season.

    Seems a bit expensive for something you’ll be consuming in copious amounts every weekend.

    Store offered me one bottle of Blanton’s (they’ve got an N and an S) for $100. That doesn’t seem absurd.

    I'm weird and don't like blantons for $60, would never pay $100 for it.

    I know it’s a $60 retail bottle, but in my two years collecting that’s the first time I’ve ever seen it in a store (or been extended the opportunity to purchase it at least.)

    I hear ya, but that owner is pulling a scam. I mean the secondary guys on here could "extend" the opportunity to buy it and get one off secondary and make $20.
