    Also for my fellow atlanta posters, that list is from Elemental Wine and Spirits. First come first serve Friday morning at 11. 1 bottle per person.

    They opened fairly recently but were already my favorite wine shop in town, this is just a cherry on top.

    I just found the place that had the $600 price that I saw last week, but it was for 2017 WLW. Cheapest I see the 2017 in secondary stores is $1399 right now.

    WLW is best BTAC and I’ll hear no arguments otherwise.

    Watershed responded,


    Hi ...


    Excited to hear from you on our Watershed Private Barrel Program! At this point, our 2020 allocation is closed, but the team is working on 2021 plans now. Timing for this won’t be until late summer or early fall of next year, and again, it will be very limited based on capacity.


    In the meantime, if you are looking to source some Watershed Barrel Strength Private Barrels -- Party Source in Kentucky and Woods Wholesale and Tippens Market (both in Michigan) each have a few bottles left from their 2020 selections, which just arrived last week!


    Out of curiosity, are you part of a bourbon club, or would this be for a single buyer? We sold two private barrels in Ohio this year… one to a bourbon club in Cleveland, and one to a private buyer in Columbus who will be using the bottles of Christmas gifts for customers.


    Looking forward to hearing more!”

    why? it's all mgp sourced. the product itself is fine. it's who is doing the blending that matters.

    Watershed might not be realistic for us since we are impatient, reach out to them?

    We fear change, but I wouldn’t necessarily call us impatient.

    Unless you’re referring to Sarah Chalke nudes. I guess we are impatient about somethings.

    That literally looks like a friend of mine who I went to college with if he had a lovechild with John Lennon...

    FYI, I did the handlebar Stache for the first few months of covid also. I did it as a joke to lighten the vibe at work and it brought good luck so I didn't shave it until August.
