    FWIW, KoK is my buddy’s all time #1, and he’s a guy who has tried all the things I’ve tried. He’s just about ready to pay full secondary for one just bc he liked it that much.

    Very nice, that uncut batch is the batch he wanted to use for his new rare and limited line, but he has such big demand for Uncut right now. That has the 8yr and 6yr he's been saving. That small batch is really good too!

    Been on working on a relationship with a store owner since February and hadn’t had a ton to show for it until today. I was picking up a 4R Small Batch Select for TheBabyShrimp and the owner was like something came in last week and I put it to the side for you.

    I just found a LB #1 for $139. It's the only one I no longer have and I haven't seen it since it came out.

    You really can't compare them. They are all unique in their own way. I do love 2 and 3 though. I can't recall 1 and 4 needs some time to breathe before I judge it.

    I like it. The palate is sweet caramel and the finish is smokey, almost peaty, which plays into my scotch appreciation. I would say price point would determine if it’s a buy or not

    Any suggestions for liquor stores in Savannah? Visiting some friends and figured I might as well see if I can find something I don't normally see. I know Habershams is big but not sure if there are any hole in the wall spots.

    I drove by about 30 minutes ago, and there was already a long line, so I knew I wouldn't get the bottles I really wanted. Just kept on driving.

    Finally hit on the Pappy 20. WFP, OF150 trades in the works. I have achieved my bourbon goals and can now rest. For a little while. Maybe.

    Side note, I’m a member of the Arkansas Bourbon Community on FB because I was hoping it would lead to info on when stores are getting good bottles. It seems to be more people posting their tasting notes on some really awful bottles. Since AR gets one of the worst alottments nationwide nobody has good stuff. There’s a post asking for people to post their collections. Don’t think I can do it to them.

    It never stops.

    I remember back in 2015 when I said if I ever find a PVW in the wild I would stop. I have found one in the wild yet I am scheming again this allotment season.

    pperc I just cracked the Willett 6 year for the first time since you sent it to me. Absolutely lovely! Wow, did this open up in a spectacular way. Very unique. It has a slightly floral slight amoretto taste to it. I feel every bit of the high proof though.

    This one was the Before version.
