    Had to do the car yearly maintenance service and the dealership is in the next biggest town over. Stopped in a nearby liquor store and found these at the lowest prices I’ve seen around. $320 after tax for the 3.

    They had Sazerac 18 for $1,300, OF Birthday for $499 And Little Book for $299

    Got a bottle of EHT Small Batch for $50. That’s the best I price I’ve seen it anywhere out here

    CoastalOrange what did you think of the BM Sherry?

    The same store had the BMs sherry, xo, and Madeira for $75/each. First time I’ve seen them in stores as 750ml. Really glad I stocked up on the 375ml

    I sent a bottle to my friend in Florida and he was blown away by it. I cracked mine the other night and had a small pour, but I just wasn't in a drinking mood to appreciate it. I think I like the XO a little better though.

    Surprised the Clyde May's is only 114 proof as the 11 year is 120 and the 8 year is 117. Let me know how that is. How much was that?

    $109 and only one left on the shelf. I like the apple notes in the CM small batch 110 proof that I have so I’m really looking forward to a pour

    Yes, the 11 is loaded with apple. I am guessing the 10 is a bit less because the 8 is significantly less but still there.

    Got invited to a tasting last night with a pretty crazy lineup. Want to die at the moment but had tastes of Elmer T. Lee, Booker's 30th Anniversary, Willett 80th Anniversary, Stagg '17, Stagg '18, Rock Hill Farms, EH Taylor Four Grain, and Old Grand Dad 114 (shoutout to BrickTamland on the OGD) to name a few. Elmer T. Lee was the smoothest stuff I've ever had.

    Not firing on all cylinders at the moment.
