I hear you, you've always got your eyes on the prize
my wife would kill me on so many levels. As it is I don't have room and just made space for 12 bottles today.
I meant some tix for my man Leeroy Jenkins!
I'll help you move extras on secondary at 285-300+ each.
let us know how the Nobiliary is!
we are still not coming close to the $35K-40K likely winning bid.
Would be happy to!
150 bottles x $300 per bottle = $45k. I bet it ends up at $50k though. $35k is probably my max.
I would put up some money as well
So whomever wins is likely just turning around and selling all of it for profit I assume.
Well, I don’t know. There are some very wealthy people out there.
If we can get 8 people at 5k each, we might have a shot to win. I’ll ask a friend of two. Plus think of all the credit card points!
I'd feel better if can win at $35k honestly... but lets see
If someone can explain to me like I’m 5 how best to unload most of the bottles on secondary I’ll throw in on this TMB coalition bid
I will consider it as well. $300 for a bottle of Weller. That’s steep doh.
Stopped by local store to ask about a MWND I saw online for Leeroy Jenkins! and saw a guy holding a Weller Full Proof store pick talking to the owner. It wasn't on the floor, but they pulled one from the back when I asked if they had anymore and wasn't awful at 129.99
nice! look at that... good things happen when you do nice things for others. $130 is good considering they are up to 300+ now
Leeroy Jenkins! I didn't know you were looking for MWND... why didn't you just ask me?
He's looking for an Act 6, I got one from this store a few weeks ago. They are gonna send me an email with what they got in the back.
Fathers Day is the best time other than the fall for finding rare stuff. Saw an Instagram post by one of the stores I follow about a Fathers Day basket deal. Checked it out and walked out with a GTS for $100. Had to spend $200 to be able to buy it but I just stocked up on a bunch of stuff I drink regularly so it was a win-win.
ah... well, if you don't get one he should ask me...
OK, just cracked the Nobiliary...
Nose: Banana's all day, raisins, apple, vanilla, some ethanol...very sweet overall
Pallet: It's not 2005 or 2007 at first. Lot's of intense fruit flavors, but smooth...primarily apple, mango, apricot, coconut, caramel, and finishes with a spicy hot kick that has different zests and a small bit of pepper and some ethanol.
Finish: Towards the middle and finish it starts to remind you more of 2005 and 2007 with more oak and the bourbon cask flavor coming through. It's a long finish and it is really good. It alternates between a lot of flavors but I get vanilla, coconut, zest, and some ethanol heat. Very warm, but not bothersome. The heat really lingers. You feel like you drank something substantial.
Overall: 9/10 It's fucking delicious. It packs a flavor punch. I would equate it to drinking a Stagg Jr. or a ECBP if it was a bourbon. It also reminds me of a more intense Little Book #2. I like that it is not like 2005 and 2007, because it's its own thing. I would say 2007 is the closest to drinking bourbon and this strays from that but in a really good way. So much fucking flavor. If you are not big on fruit flavors you may shy away from this one, but I really like the apple and upfront tart fruit, even in bourbon.
Ok want badlu
Where can I do this same thing?
What’s the best Foursquare
Whitlock's in Marietta GA
2007. Anyone who disagrees is a pinko commie.
If you are down that way and can grab me the GTS (along with whatever else necessary), I can run up and get you a 2007 today (assuming they still have it), then give you that and cash.
I would text you but lost my phone to a river this past weekend and hadn't backed up the phone since April 2019 so I lost everything.
How are the prices at Whitlock’s?
For those shopping at Whitlocks, go to Gem City and talk with the new owner, Brian. He’s redone that store and has had some great store picks already.
(Plus he’s a buddy of mine.)
They're solid. MSRP on pretty much everything.
The auction is up to 48k. There goes that pipe dream.
LOL knew it
No nobiliary yet :armscrossed:
Russell’s picks dropping at stores all around me. Take my money.
As much as I enjoy RR10, I have struggled with paying twice the price for a store pick. Am I doing this wrong?
Have you ever blind tasted a pick against the regular? I’ve done that and discovered I enjoy the picks more. Plus, I think it’s cool to compare the notes of the different single barrels.
I haven’t bought a store pick yet. My Total Wine has theirs for $69 (nice.) Instead of buying one I just bought two RR10 and called it a day.
yeah, that' a bit pricey. $55 is where I've seen them.
I gotta get my hands on some RR Store Picks.
Picked one up today
New Knob Creek 15 year store picks (bottled in 2020) started showing up around town
Rebel Yell 10 yr single barrel for $70? I’m going to buy it but should I be excited for it is really my question?
If you like wheat, yes it’s above average.
Why yes I do like wheaters. Thanks for the info
Where? I looked at specs, twin liquors and total wine
Went to pickup my Rebel 10 and a handle of tequila today. Left with an additional Weller SR, Blanton, and old Ezra in tow.
Stopped by a little hole in the wall liquor store this afternoon. Asked the guy if he had any Blanton’s and he pulled out 2 bottles from the back. Regular one was 109 and I passed. The other he tried to tell me was not even from the US and was straight from the barrel. He wanted 399. Left with 2 bottles of Eagle Rare
Oof. The SFTB was severely overpriced. Fuck that guy.
