That penmanship needs work though
I know it ain't fancy but finally saw some early times BIB and bought a couple
Don't sell yourself too short, you've been pretty damn helpful to me at least.
It’s good pour. I keep it around. But as others have since posted, Rare Breed is better.
The old 17 or the new bottled in bond?
Let us know how it is. I’m always looking for diamonds in the rough.
I suspect a joke
It’s only going downhill at this point.
Not all Barrel store picks are Dickel. I just grabbed one that’s an 18yr old Kentucky Barrel that was finished in a port barrel. Also picked up a really interesting Kentucky Spirit pick from the same store. Owner mentioned that it was a low proof 11 yr Barrel. It’s one of my favorite bottles this year.
Ah yes! Nice! Pic of the 18 year?!
My fav store in Boston is doing one and announcing it soon
It won’t let me load my photo, but here is the write up on the bottle:
Barrell Craft Spirits 18 year old Whiskey aged in Ruby Port Cask and bottled Cask Strength
Jonathan had the opportunity earlier this year to taste a 100+ barrels with Joe and the crew from Barrell Craft Spirits and selcted this one of a kind 18 year old Kentucky Whiskey finished in a ruby Port barrel and bottled cask strength at 120 proof (only a Whiskey and not a Bourbon because it was aged in used barrels instead of brand new). I am very excited to be the only store currently in the country to offer this limited single barrel release! Price is $98.13 + tax per bottle while they last with a 3 bottle limit per person!
Barrel Yield 162 bottles
got it. whiskey, not bourbon. i was told the Gordon's will be bourbon, but we'll see.
How is it? Sounds tasty. i like port finishes.
It’s one of the better whiskeys I’ve had this year. Wish I would’ve bought two.
will hopefully try tonight, still have my bourbon run in the car from yesterday so the wife would not find out
It's good for the value, it's a lot of corn with only a 4 year age, prefer the OGD BiB over it
Oregon bottle lottery live today, lots of Japanese choices this time as well as Weller 12, C.Y.P.B. and FP. The Wellers are $40-$50 respectively.
Entered the wife and I, she is not going to be happy if I win the 17 year Habiki at $200 or 18 year Yamazaki for 350 but it’s really the will of the gods if I win.
Hibiki 17 is 425-450 on secondary and Yama 18 is 650 so if you win either and don't want them, I'll help you make a bunch of money. Wife will be pleased.
I irritate her a lot, so this would be nothing new.
What’s secondary on Hukushu 12 or 18 year? They are also in this thing.
12 is 125-150; 18 is 450
Retail for 12 is 125, and the 18 is 250, so value at the 18 year.
What’s the best way to ship bottles? Just bubble wrap the hell out of it? And do you pay insurance on it?
Don’t ask Leeroy Jenkins!
FedEx saver. No insurance (it’s illegal for you to ship it). Bubble wrap is good. There are also special bottle shaped bubble wrap that you can order on amazon. There is also bottle shaped foam that works well.
envelope and a stamp boom
diapers work great
Fedex or UPS. Tons of bubble wrap. don't tell them what it is. don't use USPS. Make sure the package can't move around.
we have several "how to ship posts". anyone want to find them and add a primer to the first post?
Damn you’re a genius. I have a ton of those at home w a toddler. Thanks
I send a lot of Italian care packages, olive oil and pasta and such. Always wrap the olive oil in cardboard and bubble wrap.
I send care packages too. FedEx thinks I'm a saint
the 2008 is every bit as good as the 2007 sample Leeroy Jenkins! sent
I haven’t seen that for sale. Is it easy to find?
Sampling Old Fitz. Dick Trickle sent me a 9 sample and I really like the bite mixed with the vanilla. May even prefer it to the 11, but the 11 is super smooth.
2008?!? Shit I didn’t know it was out yet dude
I didn’t send you a 9 sample??
Lol, I was afraid to ask if it was new, because I didn’t want to sound dumb. I thought the Nobiliary was the release for this year.
You may have, and if you did I am super psyched, because I want more. Checking now.
Yeah it’s got to be brand new
sem i should’ve done some Old Fitz 9 for you, also. Went a different direction.
Yeah it just hit Athens last week and only one store got it. Bottle says Apr 2020.
Im 100% guessing but seems they are gonna do a 12 year every year (2007, 2008) and then a named (Nobiliary, Dominus, Sagacity, Empery, Premise, etc..)
Just switched up to the Garrison Brothers store pick. I really like the amaretto flavor. It pairs great with cigars.
Friend of mine is just getting into good bourbon. Got together a nice, simple starter pack for him.
This is a safe space.
I’m going to respectfully decline that. While I highly doubt how to ship illegally is going to hit any radar of law enforcement on the interwebs, that would make it easy enough to find and get the thread nuked. Openly discussing secondary sales is how a facebook page got yanked I think which I think we’ve mostly avoided.
all this talk and excellent new burbon .
but 100 proof moonshiine is still thething .
just paid 60 $ for a gallon of apricot barrel hootch.
blue flame .
