    I am putting 5 aside for my daughter to sell. You can grab one. Two others are spoken for I believe. I’ve never seen it this cheap and without tax it is literally a steal at $40.

    bought one of those on Monday night, the store I bought it from here had a small sample bottle so they let me sample it before I bought it - I thought it was delicious

    Anyone else in Atlanta get in on the Mega Package drop yesterday? That was neat. They dropped WFP, EHT SiB, and Blantons store picks. I got up and left in the middle of a meeting and sprinted over there

    I got all 3. The pricing wasn't MSRP but still a no brainer for store picks IMO.

    WFP was $89
    EHT was $99 (seen these SPs go for $400ish on secondary so I'll probably flip this one since I have a few regular SiB)
    Blantons was $84

    Not bad. Move the EHT SiB soon. They have dropped to 350-400.

    Made a day trip out to Cooperstown this weekend and grabbed a couple of goodies. 30% off for doing a tour of the distillery was a nice incentive.

    Their store picks are amazing. Bought one at a local store on a whim and have gone back to buy three more over the last year. Will be opening up one of the ones I have on my shelf this weekend.

    Yes I didn’t love that one when I opened it. Been a few months so may be time to revisit. This seems to matter more for the higher proof picks.

    Reading a bourbon description and underneath the mashbill and ABV is the statement “a PG of 25.4”. Any clue what that means? Google is no help except to suggest propylene glycol, a flavor additive for fireball, but this is a single barrel straight bourbon. My understanding is straight bourbon can’t have anything but water added?

    I drank NYGator ’s WT revival sampler, and now I’m keeping the night of quality bourbon rolling with a glass of a Mellow Corn.

    Yep.

    Mellow Corn.

    I've seen PG mean proof gallon, but 25.4 doesn't make sense.

    A 750ml bottle is 25.4oz, maybe it has to do with that?

    Is it a barrel proof? I don’t know what the metrics mean and I’m tired from thinking but found a metric.

    So I messaged Fred minnick figuring he’d know, sure enough it’s proof gallons. I double checked and it works out, they list bottle count too. 10 barrels, all same age, highest was PG over 28 and 115 bottles, lowest was a PG of 2 and 8 bottles from the whole barrel.

    Separate story, but Fred says these guys are ripping off Dave Pickerell. https://www.pickebourbon.com/MasterPickeBottle?number=7

    yes both.

    Sagacity is good, not as good as the zin cask.

    I like 2008 better than 2007, but 2004 is still my favorite.

    2008 is more rum, less bourbon, less bite than 2007

    My honey hole has been clutch the last 2 Fridays. Last week he slipped me an old fitz 9 for $93 and today an Elmer T for $39.99. Also got a Shenks - never had it but I thought I remembered it being highly regarded by pperc
