    I know secondary is frowned upon but I think you can get value for value trades on Antique from people in Ohio if you have something interesting to trade. I had a buddy trade for a couple that way.

    That’s kind of the name of the game as I see it right now.

    Buy what’s available to you, trade for what’s not.

    The one by my office gets them Fridays at 9 sometimes and they're gone by noon. I used to be able to get them, but I've been heading home Thursdays lately. I never see it in PA.

    My store got a single bottle of EH Taylor Small batch and Michter's Barrel Strength Bourbons. Missed it by 5 minutes. On the flip side, scored a bottle of Blanton's for 60 bucks.

    Indeed. Plenty of stores playing the markup game here. There's a store in my old neighborhood that was selling the Micther's Barrel Strength Rye for 250$.

    One of the bottles apparently caught the clap and had some leakage. I guess it helped with the aerating process because this stuff is pretty good right off the rip.

    Definitely not as fruity as Armada and if someone is unfamiliar with Amaro they’d be turned off by it too. This would be up the thread’s alley more

    Barrell is really proud of their stuff. Never feel like paying $90-105 for it.

    Is it good? Saw it at a store in Atlanta this past weekend and was unfamiliar with it, so I passed. As such, it’s probably great

    story has one of the Carolinas finger fudged a Weller order by like 3 zeros then backed out, Ohio bought it instead. BT has since that time given Ohio like all the Weller

    this was pre the bourbon craze

    Definitely a bit jealous. Going to keep my eye out for one of these but I'm not hopeful.

    Also, though it might be a bit cheesy, I want to find one of these:

    Yeah looked it up earlier today and saw delayed.

    Idk. I have a couple other things being delayed both fedex and ups. I’ve literally never had an issue with getting booze here. Seems weird. I am trying not to worry to much about it.

    Yes, that’s retail and I bought 4 bottles last time. Maybe my favorite bourbon I got last year behind the GTS.

    I think he’s had each of those bottles 5+ years. He told me that when he was in his residency (and not yet married), he would buy 2 bottles a month and just stash them. He said most were $150-200 when he bought them. He had a pretty extensive collection of four roses single too.

    Contacted my main store a while back about possibly buying one of their empty store pick barrels off of them to turn into a table for our back porch. They let me have this bad boy for free this morning. Pretty awesome.

    I just left a store with 4yr rye sitting on the shelf for $60, probably go back and grab a few tomorrow.

    They’ve also got a ‘21 TH Handy for $600, but I think that’s about secondary.

    edit - looks like secondary for the Willet 4yr is only $70-75, not my favorite rye so I’m going to pass, and THH is going for $525 so meh
