    Im working on my liquor store guy to get you the Mitchers 20. Shoot me a note if you land it first. Not sure when it might be available again but I have top priority now.

    Yes, super oaky, vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, lot's of fire, but in a good way. Warms the back of your throat. I really enjoyed it last night.

    If he prioritizes me it’s yours. Just let me know if it lands with you first so I’m not sitting with a $500 bottle and a very irritated wife.

    Thank you so much. I’ll take it no matter what at 500 up to 1k and would consider higher depending on how much.

    It would be retail, I offered him a bottle for himself, so should be less than $700 if I get priority.

    A BTAC type bottle of it goes through his shop. They are all around $100-$150 retail.

    I just realized with COVID killing the bar industry for the foreseeable future that should mean more widely available, challenging to find bottles could become available.

    Restaurants are big accounts for those items here in Oregon.

    I told the owner of the store that I would buy the Mitchers 20 and a bottle of his choice, likely a BTAC bottle, and leave behind the bottle he chose for him. No markups allowed in Oregon so he gets a nice bottle for prioritizing me over someone else who wants the M20.

    Or more simply I am bribing him for preference.

    Oh wow. Nice strategy. I would have to of course pay you for the BTAC bottle on top of the M20 but that’s a great deal still.

    It would work out to ~$600 or so for the bottle, which is a tiny premium all things considered.

    If pperc gets his M20 from his other source, I’d do the same deal as above DistantFactor

    Unless he wants both - then I stand down.

    my buddy found this in a store today. No telling how many years it had been sitting there. It was also $14, or roughly 1/3 of what the current, non-age stated version is.
