Hell yeah it is
Find something for me. What’s the consensus on the High Wire Jimmy Red stuff?
The EC store pick 12 year seems decently priced
I'd go with the Elijah Craig Store Pick , Widow Jane 10 year, or Smoke Wagon UU even though that price is a bit high
$350 for Blanton's? Woof
Same store, same day… this post was, sadly, not by my father.
what a douche
Hard to believe no one scooped all of that shit up.
Clearly you do not leave nearby
enough shit there to fertilize my crops forever
Thanks to Earn_Marks
Saw this bottle when I was at Benash and was tempted. Let me know when you open it that I made a mistake!
It’s really good, I got a sampler of it a little before Christmas. The bourbon tastes young but the rye is great
What are you guys thoughts on Booker's? Is it worth the price? I see it around and see some speak highly of it but it's quite pricey for a 6-7 year old bourbon.
I thnk it's fun to collect them. Each is unique, and each is anywhere from good to great depending on the blend (and how much you like the beam profile.)
I've got seven of them, four open. If collecting, tasting, comparing is your thing, then it's probably the easiest series to get regularly.
Haven't had a ton of Beam. I found Bakers 7 to be fairly underwhelming. At least the bottle j had. I'm sure there can be quite a bit of variation since it's single barrel.
It is good. When it was $50-60 it was great
I still find Bakers for $60ish
yeah never see that here. instead, saw some lady grinning like a pig in shit walking out with a bottle of jim beam from a costco liquor store yesterday.
Random finds in suburban Chicagoland
I forget what we ended up betting on the Michigan-UGA game. Was it a gold vein OWA?
We Need to pull that post
Nice Wednesday surprise
Any of you guys in those Facebook groups for bottle draws? That’s what jbr pic reminds me of lol
Why do you ask?
You a cop?
PA had a hell of a drop today and the site completely ate shit. One of my checkouts took 2 hours of refreshing to go through.
cleaned up though!
This is just my store across the street. They are good to me about the mid level allocated stuff. My guy admits to keeping the 1-2 really good bottles he gets annually, but the rest is fair game. That leaves me in a pretty easy situation for Weller, Smokewagon UU, some Michter’s, etc. Nothing special, but better than most.
Damn, you can order online?
Haven't seen Weller 12 in years.
That’s awesome. Ohio has had shit lately. Kentucky gets all the good stuff but you usually will have to pay.
Liquor control states are a whole different world.
Once a month they do a big online drop and the site is almost useless and you have to hope for the best
Not a bad list here at the hotel
Those prices. Ewwww.
Ohio is controlled, however no online ordering and no shipping of liquor
are you getting beer?
Yeah, it’s ridiculous
Let me tell you about my Wednesday surprise
Yes I wound up with a Stagg Jr and an OF11 and I feel like I lost compared to you fuckers. Fortunately Detlef Schrempf was nice enough to trade me for his Weller SiB, considering I lost one of those and a W12 when my card got rejected because it had a fraud freeze on it.
I don't know, that OF is pretty damn good. Heard this years Stagg Jr is a bit hotter than most years but I haven't had it.
Yes, now that I have a new one coming I was drinking my existing one tonight and it is really good.
It’s been talked about before. I think all the PA residents in this thread are aware of it.
I don't even think it comes to my state. If it does it never makes it to retail. But I've had a pour. It is excellent.
I’ll show you next week
PA bourbon hunting sounds like playing Oregon Trail as a banker.
Yeah, I am jealous.
My dad is so bad at it and got so impatient today that he took a nap.
