DM me what your looking for as long as it’s reasonable
I’m almost as lost in this thread as I am in the sneaker one.
When I get off I’ll take pictures of the stuff I have at home so I can get roasted on here, fun will be had by all
BrickTamland , this is correct. You can throw in some variances too. For example, taste immediately after adding a few drops of water and swirling. Then cover with a piece of paper and wait 30 minutes to swirl and taste again.
After the first sip, I generally add a few drops of water and if it is over 100 proof a small ice cube too. When the weather is hot I add several of the rocks to make it cool without diluting it.
Rye younger than 4 years can be surprisingly good at barrel proof. Buying 4 year old bourbon used to be for $9 bottom shelf bottles. Now they add a zero and sell it as “craft.” There will be a market correction soon and the backlash will be brutal on younger bottles.
I have these too. As well as the ones below and glencairns. Glencairn is the best way to get the nose of a bourbon imo.
I drink from an $8 set of rocks glasses Mrs. Tamland got from HomeGoods.
An FYI for getting the notes out of smelling a bourbon is to not swirl, and let it settle. Swirling will release ethanol giving you a nice burn in your nose, which will mute the scents. A small swirl should be ok if it has sat for a while and you don't smell much, but aggravate it too much and you'll get a nice dose of ethanol.
Big fan of adding water as you can control the dilution. Ice makes the last few sips entirely too weak.
Knob Creek 12 Year?
I just opened a store pick single barrel aged 15yr and I am disappoint. Knob Creek is not my jam.
We buy alcohol from the same store
You guys have probably fucked and just don’t know it.
Just picked up a bottle of EH, and Blantons here in Austin.
Elijah Craig 23 and 18 shipped this week in Kentucky. Be on the lookout.
I would like an 18 for $150 or less. Thanks.
I’ve had the 23 and did not like. Want to try the 18 but would not buy (to keep). I’d get it and let someone buy it from me.
FYI I spotted some 18 in Alabama last week that had just arrived in state. Posted a picture in the old thread
It was $199 right?
What’s the deal with Contradiction Bourbon, Smooth Ambler? Had some last weekend and it was delightful, but today at the liquor store I saw it had some USA Today #1 pick type award. Is this some mainstream non-cunty bourbon, or decent pick for cheap?
Think I’d stick with the Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7yr, which is the same price if not cheaper.
(Contradiction blends that 7yr high-rye bourbon with 2yr wheated bourbon.)
Just picked up two little books, two McKenna 10a and a 1910 in NC for NC people. Get to the ABCs seems like they are getting the good stuff in (for NC).
Is the Federal Trade Commission lurking on this site?
Best place to order online?
Old Ezra 7 year barrel proof -$40. Buy.
I like it
One entry into the raffle for every bottle of bourbon purchased that day. If you win, you get to overpay for one of these bottles. I am less and less interested in participating in this as I get closer to Saturday.
That crap always pisses me off. Charge what you want for bottles if you’re selling them directly, but if you’re going to do a raffle or big release event that requires additional purchases and you STILL aren’t close to MSRP, then you suck
They aren’t crazy bad... but yeah.
This is how our raffle worked. There was a group of guys that bought about 200 tickets worth of bourbon (minimum 20 dollar bottles) and they didn't get any of the ultra rare stuff. It was awesome.
I’m a fan of raffles in general, and don’t mind requiring other purchases, but if you do that, stick to MSRP even if it means nonprofit on that one bottle. Just sort of an unspoken rule.
A couple months back I went to a store release (their first) for just stuff like ETL, Blanton’s, OWA. These idiots were at $99 for Blanton’s and $89 on OWA. People just left without buying anything and they seemed genuinely confused
Man the amount of Hill Farmstead beer I could trade for if I won a bottle of pappy 15...
Gave a client a bottle of Weller 12 a month or so back
He called me this morning to give me a bottle of Blanton's for free, I guess he got 10 bottles in Iowa over thanksgiving.
I think I'll keep the Blantons, will be the only bottle of Bourbon in my house.
I just keep looking at that list and the only ones I think I’d be willing to pull the trigger on are: W12, Birthday, WLW, and ER17.
Not really sure about MSRP for everything on the list though.
I wouldn't spend $150 on birthday bourbon.
I'd def pull the trigger on the ER17. And probably the Stagg at that price.
Actually now I can’t wait to get home and create a spreadsheet with MSRP, “raffle” prices, and secondary.
Heaven Hill Bottled In Bond for $100
Go fuck yourself... this is the same store that sells their Blanton’s for $100.
Need help with secondary pricing, but I think I'm right on my MSRPs.
I use FB groups for secondary pricing just bc I see those actually sell. Some of those secondary prices are a little high based on those groups.
Rip 10 - 450
Lot B - 500
PVW15 - 1000-1100
4RLE - 300ish
EC18 - 180ish
ETL - 140
OFBB - 375
Weller Antique - 80
Those prices are what you can get these shipped to your door for from the groups. Give or take a couple percent
Buddy of mine got the ER17 my god it’s amazing.
This makes me happy because:
A) confirms all the reviews I’ve read/watched
B) your buddy got it and actually drank it
C) he shared it
I'm going to a 4 course dinner with the wife in PA in January - place did a collaboration with Willett so every $150 ticket also goes home with a bottle of Willett 7 yr rye store pick. No brainer, imo.
henlo I m wife
The Uber home is going to hurt, butt fuck it.
Can you change the header from secondary to trade value. Asking for a friend.
Saw some Van Winkle bottles at my local beer store. Curiosity made me ask how much.
10 - $399
12 - $599
15 - $999
I fucking hate the bourbon craze, but that guy running the store sure the fuck loves it I bet, because some dumb asshole is going to end up buying those.
