Nope, that’s pretty much it.
I’m in a very small group that does buybacks. Basically the exact same as a normal lotto but the seller can say “buyback of 90%”. So if $100 total is collected, the winner has the option to either take the bottle, or $90 cash as the buyback. Increases the action a bit as some folks just want to gamble
That’s what it was, I like this idea of it increases participation.
Its a good idea bc a lot of people just turn around and sell whatever they won, so this just cuts out the middle man, they get their cash and raffles fill quicker
Ok bourbon aficionados, I need your help.
I am entering a lottery tomorrow morning at a local liquor store to try to win the right to buy a rare bourbon.
Problem is, I’m not a bourbon drinker and know nothing about bourbon. My soon to be father in-law is however, and I would like to get him a bottle of something rare and hard to find as a wedding/Xmas present.
Given the chance I actually get my ticket drawn and I can purchase something, can you guys help me with what I should try to get from the list below.
Like maybe a ranking of your top 3 choices or something? Thanks for your help!
Do you have a budget?
Is this in KY? Mind sharing where it is?
Yep, total wine at the paddock shops in Louisville.
Well, I don’t even know how much each of these will cost, embarrassingly. I was thinking $200 or less ideally.
That's what I was thinking. It depends if you are willing to take the chance. That's definitely going to be your better option as far as bottle quality, but if you want a sure thing, you can get a pretty nice bottle at Liquor Barn's first-come, first-serve release tomorrow morning (assuming you are okay with standing in line for that long). Not sure if you saw the list or not, but they are going to have Elijah Craig 18, 23, Michter's 10 bourbon and rye, Michter's toasted bourbon, along with some pretty decent store picks (including OWA).
Which liquor barn and what’s the list?
Hurstbourne, Middletown and Springhurst (the one close to the Total Wine).
Anybody had this year's Stagg? Just won a bottle. Do I trade or drink? I have a older bottle of Stagg on my shelf and I don't love it TBH. But I've had a different year that was one of the better bottles I've had.
I've heard this years Stagg is amazing. But that's coming from someone who loves higher proof bourbons, so TIFWIW.
Facebook group is very quiet, how are we going to help revitalize it?
I too prefer high ABV bourbons. Was thinking of swapping it for an older 4R SBLE or putting it towards the Booker's 30 when it drops.
My opened GTS is an '09 at 141.4. It's rough as hell and that's all it is though. All my ECBPs kick the shit out of it.
I thought this years was a lot lower proof than some of the others, 141.4 is just too much for me tbh. I really like the Barrel proof EH Taylor I have, it’s 129.4 and it’s great.
I'm going to drop a cheap raffle and see if that gets things going but first consider this a bump for people who are interested
How limited will Booker's 30th be?
Don't know. There were around 1000 cases of the 25th but the 30th is barreled longer.
I had another year's GTS at 140+ and it was amazing. My favorite ECBP is 139.4.
Cool I’ll buy a ticket regardless of bottle to see if we can get any activity
One Two just tag me here when you do it and I’ll hop in the group and buy a ticket
Did you join the group or were you already in it
I’m interested in good bourbon as well.
Send me a PM with your name and a description of your Facebook profile pic.
It’s 124 proof.
This IS good! I may go pick up another bottle or two. Def gonna have Grand Reserve status at Total Wine this year.
Nice little haul this morning.
How much was the Bookers?
A local store near me got a Weller Antique Store Pick in and sold out in an hour. We rarely get those in Detroit.
It's MSRP is $199, I believe. Paid $220 for that one.
Aloitment at a local store this morning. Not many bottles but, walked away with a Weller 12 year.
So jealous of you guys that live in a non ABC state. Virginia is fucking terrible, I have to drive into DC to look for bottles.
Just picked up a Midwinters Night Dram
Damn nice find! Booker’s 30th tops my list for the rest of the year in terms of what I hope to find.
I feel like the Dram must have been produced way more this year.
Seems the places around here keep the nice stuff behind the counter. Do y’all just go to the counter and ask if they have anything they are keeping behind the counter?
Helps to be more specific and also build a relationship with store ownership, but in short, yes
Yeah be specific with something that you are looking for and if they don't have it they might mention something else. Helps if you are buying something anyways.
A guy my dad knows brought him this gallon of bourbon from an unknown man's barn. Said he had a huge wooden barrel in the barn and it was his personal stash. Probably about 125-140 proof and pretty damn good.
Well that’s pretty awesome.
yeah the friend also gets my dad giant tubs of olive oil from his relatives land in italy. like 30 pounders. pretty sure the guy is connected.
Was the still also in said barn?
Did he play in a softball league?
I'm going to post this up for a powerball. I'll bump this thread when it's posted in CBM
Midwinter at $140 in nyc. Haven’t seen it in a shelf in FL.
$99 in Utah.
$90 at ABC in florida if you can find it
Cool as soon as it’s up I’ll jump in, just tag me.
