    ill be honest at 122 proof and 13 years old it would have to blow me away to be worth $150 vs a $50 15 year 120 proof store pick.

    I ordered a bunch of stuff from them last time including hats and shirts and everything was amazing and priced well.

    I have it. Not a huge fan, but I also do not love KC. I also paid about $125 for it.

    The store I found it at is notorious for markups. They want more for just about everything other than Buffalo Trace. Same store I paid $75 for Stagg Jr :facepalm:

    I think a couple of people said they weren't into it. Hate is probably an exaggeration.

    Stupid question but the place I usually buy from has something listed as Henry McKenna single barrel. They don't have a picture listed. Do they make a single barrel outside the 10 year?

    I was active on my local secondary group today.

    I raffled an Elmer T. Lee for $195 (because how absurd is that?) and then I bought a Blanton’s SFTB with the proceeds.

    Local restaurant is selling Nikka Coffey Grain and Pure Malt for $100 and $115, respectively. Setting aside the fact it's helping a local restaurant, those are pretty high prices, aren't they?

    I’ve gotten two in the last two years. I was lucky to get both of them because both times they were behind the counter and offered to me by my go-to spot. I still have one opened and it’s decent.

    It’s just overvalued in my opinion.

    Yeah, I probably wouldn't pay more than about 50 or 60 for one. I'd like to have it in the collection though.

    I just took a pour, because I haven't had it since I opened it last year. I appreciate it so much more now. It definitely has a ton of great flavor, but it is still relatively hot, although I think it mellowed since I opened it. The big detraction for me though is the pepper. I am not a huge pepper guy and sometimes the pepper overwhelms and drowns out some of the better flavors.

    Every time I’ve tried it, I’ve liked it a little more. I’m on bottle 2 now and going fast. It’s not quite on ECBP level for me, but that’s not a fair comparison either because that’s an all time favorite of mine. It compares very well to any other barrel proof product that you can readily find.

    Still haven't tried ECBP. I went with the Larceny for $20 less, but I'll probably go back for the EC.

    I don't even try to compare those two. They are so different and both great for what they are. I think a fairer comparison to ECBP is Stagg Jr. They are both flavor bombs. Larceny is high octane wheater.

    Stopped in my spot today and got to taste this. My guy only got one bottle so he kept it and is letting all his regulars have a pour when they came in. It’s good- not 2 grand good obviously. Tasted like a more complex and mature single barrel. I didn’t pick up much oak at all which surprised me given the 18 yr age. A7258341-D481-4243-9C22-DC87D8B9F1F2.jpeg
