    You can buy any allocated, rare, valuable bottle you want on the secondary market (typically via Facebook.)

    It’s fun to dream about paying $120 retail foe a bottle of Pappy 15 that re-sells on the secondary market for... uh, I’m guessing $1,500? It’s also fun to drink all of the great whiskey that’s being made available these days at or below $70 and leave the rare bottles to the Instagram influencers.

    ASW came in fighting at too high price point. Some of
    Their store picks are really good though, ie the Heartwood Fiddler barrel proof offerings. They’re sitting at $70-80 when they should be flying off the shelves at $60.

    no but the Makers private selects have all been varying levels of good IMO.

    i do wonder how that one is different from Makers 46 cask strength

    I feel like I'm in the minority in GA but I did not like the Heartwood pick (Toco) I got at all. Especially not at $70

    I liked Minks’s barrel, but I haven’t tried the second bottle I picked up. I honestly don’t even remember where it’s from, but do agree it’s overpriced.

    I have recently gone down the rabbit hole of buying up store picks of different bourbons and I have definitely realized that there is a lot of value in finding people who are good at picking barrels.

    haha yep. We had some good bottles in there but also had some head scratchers like that. I just can't believe his luck for them both to win but both so low that there was nothing left.

    nah, i think it was just an inside joke they had. or that the bottle is "money" or something stupid.
    it was a 4-5 person picking group for that one i think. did you try anything else yet?

    Yeah Tito’s sucks and even with all their money they still have summer ads up


    But really I’m not sure. I hadn’t heard anything about unrest, but it’s probably sazerac mad about their performance with certain brands or items. I’ll ask around.

    Vaults for me. I think there’s only 20 cases coming to GA.

    Tower got Widow Jane Decadence today if anyone is looking for it. I should have bought a bottle earlier, just forgot.

    I think they’re great quality. There’s really nothing else like Duality. Fiddler and Resurgens are quality. Tire Fire is great if you like heavily peated scotches.

    Two of their other Single Malts, Burns Night and Marris Otter are fantastic.

    Yeah 15 this year, last year was 14YR.

    The single barrel picks this year are 13 Year. They were fucking fantastic at 12 years.

    I was there when they selected it and tasted with them. Personally I really liked it, but everyone varies on what they like.

    Sucks you didn’t enjoy it though.

    I had tiny sips of them all. Gonna get into them a bit more after dinner tonight. I’ll report back. I’d say the store picks are a notch above Michter’s 10 so far.
