    I hate I didn’t take a pic. Pulled the tag off and put in the box. Didn’t want tape around the top to tear it up.

    Be weary of >$80 bottles that you see everywhere (WhistlePig, Widow Jane, WhistlePig, Kentucky Owl, and also WhistlePig.)

    Also I have this thread to thank for RR10; absolutely a new favorite daily drinker. There’s so much great whiskey nowadays in the sub $40 range.

    Ohio controls their barrel picks, and does them for the entire state, so we only get like one a month. It's fucking stupid, but it is what it is. They've been doing it for about a year and a half and just did their third WhistlePig barrel pick. Every other pick is at the store for about an hour on release day before everyone in line gets theirs and then it's gone. I just dropped by a local store and the WhistlePig is still on their counter from a release a week ago.

    Absolutely. Plenty of good sub $40 bottles out there. There are a few higher price ones I’d like to try but I’m not going out of my way when I can get something I like in the $30-$40 range

    I remember when OWA sat on shelves in Oregon at $35 a bottle only 2-4 years ago.

    have you had one before? Total Wine has one here, but it’s like $65 so I haven’t grabbed one.

    I have not, but I like Bulleit. It's 60+tax here, and I'm intrigued enough to grab one. I can probably let you know by next weekend what I think.

    When faced with a day where my 7 month old has hand foot mouth, my 6 year old broke his arm, and my 2.5 year old is, well, 2.5 year old drama queen I decided to crack my MNWD and finally had something good happen to me today.

    please post a review once you’ve had it - I love Bulleit 10, so I may grab one before then anyway if I get back to TW before then

    No. $39. But I’m talking about a 1.75 not a fifth.

    The buffalo trace fifths are $21. But the handle for $39 is a better deal obviously. So I went with that.

    Found one yesterday at my honey hole and had a pour last night. I don't like Larceny at all but I thought it was pretty damn good. Great price too for the proof. Also, seems like a bottle that'll open up nicely.

    For Valentines Day bae somehow used her connections and got me a bottle of Blanton‘s. She jumped the line of probably a dozen or so on a call list (myself included), which is pretty admirable.
