    I stopped at this place at Beverly Hills a couple weeks ago and everything was so overpriced I laughed. Then the guy tried to sell me some angels envy for $80 like it was some on sale deal.

    sounds about like the place here that I laugh at - they have OWA for $190, Weller FP for $750, Hancock’s for $130 or $140, & Pappy 20 for $2100

    they have a few other outrageously priced ones but I haven’t been in there in a while, so I can’t remember the rest of them

    Really ended up enjoying last year’s store picks. Great bottle to drink down to the shoulder and let sit for a few weeks.

    I definitely added some water to the first few pours.

    Also found it at Brass Mug Liquor, 19213 Newburgh Rd, Livonia, MI 48152, though it was a bit more expensive there.

    Really liked that store and he has a lot of solid options. Ended up grabbing another Caribou Crossing (Single barrel) store pick for theregionsitter, a 1792 BiB store pick, and a Foursquare rum (premise). Will definitely visit that store again next time I am back up here.

    Now just have to hope I wrapped everything up tight enough in my checked bag for my flights tonight...Also that it is still under the 50 lb limit.

    Anybody seeing any rumors about new EH Taylor limited release? Say a pic where it’s called “18 year marriage” and this is about the time that would start to leak, but haven’t seen any official TTB labels or anything

    Negative.

    I’m playing a little game of “how many can I buy before Mrs. Tamland throws a fit?”

    Currently at two bottles.

    If you do it sneaky, like a few bottles here and there, nobody even notices.

    Just saw it on the shelfs again in Oregonyesterday , but now at $38 as opposed to $30 last month.

    So it begins.

    Luckily Rare Breed was on sale for $40 so I grabbed another bottle of that instead.

    Also what is the thread opinion on EHT BIB Rye? Saw it for $75ish I think and was going to buy it until I saw it was a Rye, which I typically like but didn't want to blindly purchase since he has a few.

    Plenty of rye that I’ve been enjoying in the $30-50 range, so I’m too hesitant to drop the money in EHT rye (even at $75, lowest I’ve seen it is $89.)

    Also Duval offered this last week:

    I love OGD114 at $30.

    If I could get it for $21, I’d die of cirrhosis by year end.

    It’s almost always on the shelf at that price too - pretty much anytime I go into Spec’s or Total Wine, there’s multiple bottles on the shelf
