    Idk what I want a pour of for tonight. Leaning towards the OF1910

    I’m hoarding my better stuff and haven’t opened them out of worry I won’t find for the price anytime soon. Maybe these days are as good as ever to tap into them

    I decided (for some unknown reason) to take a pour of my Harper 15 tonight. It is not bad for such low proof. It's just not good for the money.

    I have stayed the fuck home for 9 days straight and they were doing curbside pickups. But thanks for stopping by the bourbon thread to lecture me.

    Nope.

    Does the BCS 15 have the Flintstone vitamin taste to it since some of the bourbon is sourced from Dickel? Some tasting reviews I’ve read have picked up on that in their tasting notes.

    I’ve never really identified the flint stone vitamin taste in anything before, so I don’t know. I taste toffee and chocolate the most in the BCS 15. It’s super smooth. I am a big fan.

    “Stopping by the bourbon thread”. Can someone correct this mother fucker?
    Stay the fuck home. Period. You don’t need to go fucking bourbon hunting for 3 hours you selfish piece of shit. Period.

    Oh and 9 days? Seattle, SF, etc have have been home for 21 day +. Selfish.

    A figure of speech implying that I haven’t been a part of this thread for way fucking longer than you. And have literally helped people, got them and sent them bottles at cost + ship.

    don’t like being called selfish? Then don’t act selfish and stay the fuck home. You could have killed people today for a couple of bottles. Then the gall to brag here? Fuck you. We just went over 1000 deaths and nearly 70k confirmed cases in the US. But please tell us about all the curb side pickup you did during a pandemic.

    Probably not the best time for a bunch of alcoholics in need of medical assistance. Other than that half serious/half snarky answer, it was probably a favor.

    Like my friend Colonel Taylor always says, “Pandemics are a time to drink, not a time to fucking hunt bourbon.”

    At least I think I read that somewhere.

    Agreed, I’ve shared that same though regarding the price point. If they’d have priced this bottle at $42, I’d call it a home run.

    I got a store way out in the country to sell me their three-bottle allocation. And because it was a three-bottle case, they gave me a 5% discount.

    $50.35 after tax :ballin:
