    Talking to my liquor store guy, EC toasted is just OF juice anyways since all OF are toasted. More of a gimmick.

    Compared it to my 1910 last night and similar flavor profile, with 1910 being better.

    That doesn’t seem to make sense, Beam Suntory versus Heaven Hill.

    I think the bourbon from last might had me crossed up.

    Think he said Mitchers Toasted is same juice as OF. Could be miss remembering.

    I do know the OF stuff all being toasted was a thing.

    EC toasted is regular EC placed into a toasted barrel for a few months.

    I don’t understand how you ban pappy sales, but not All other BT products since they use the same “anti counterfeiting measures”

    yeah, if it's employees stealing the capsules then they could steal the BTAC ones just as easily

    I'm going to be offering this thread several bottles at my cost + your shipping label in the coming days/weeks. Be fast, be ready. Will be limited numbers of bottles per post. Mostly store picks and the like.

    This reminds of this time last year. My buddy got a tip that our county was dropping some really good bottle on a random Tuesday. I got to the store 45 minutes before opening and was 3rd in line behind an older couple. Their kid had got the tip too. When we went inside they had GTS, Old Fitz 13, Michter 10, and blantons. They both got Blantons cause apparently it’s their kids favorite. Solid good deed by them to stand in line just to get their kid bourbon but I could only shake my head watching them grab blantons over all the other bottles. They only had three bottles of GTS so The two guys behind me that got them after I grabbed the first were incredibly lucky.

    Dropping a bottle, covering someone else’s shipping expenses, and covering expenses to send their bottle back. Wasn’t the best time I’ve ever had.

    Just got Chattanooga Single Barrel no.4. So I got 2, 3 and 4 now. Pretty happy as I did not wait in line too long each time and showed up 30 mins after opening. It was 90 deep at 11:00 AM opening

    I got spot 93 in Fairhope AL. I live in Bham. Can't imagine I will get anything worth a shit with spot 93. Only think worth driving for would be BTAC.

    So they actually just sold me two bottles. I’ve already got one trade, but if somebody wants to trade for the other bottle, PM me.

    edit: never mind, going to sell this to a buddy for cost. I still technically have one extra bottle as my back up, open to offers

    For you Atlanta folk- 2020 BTAC has hit the secondary market and said to be shipping out to stores this week. Time to start badgering your favorite store owner or cashing in your savings bonds to buy at ridiculous markups

    If BTAC is hitting Atlanta next week that means Arkansas should get them the week after Christmas

These are all around retail, but retail is expensive. If anybody has been searching for these, let me know.
