  • Not a Pappy or even a whiskey but had to deal with this yesterday....


    I've had it and still have a bottle left over.

    This is a WONDERFUL cognac!

    Gotta try to score some Old Forrester Birthday and Four Roses Limited.  Let me know if anyone can snag extras.  Good luck with your hunt  this fall guys.  BTW, my neighbor got me to try Wild Turkey 17 year.  Damn good, so had to snag couple bottles locally.  Still had some on the shelf.  Might be hard to find, but if you do, it’s smooth.  
    The days of "extras" are long gone now...
    That's an understatement, unfortunately.  Hell, it is even true for several items that were commonly found on shelves not long ago.

    I guess extras wouldn’t really be applicable to those.  You’re right.  How about just take your spouse or sibling with you to get my bottle when it’s 1 per customer?  :i_dunno:

    The Makers and old forester were good - not a big fan of “peated” stuff.

    What was the stave selection on the Maker's Private Select?

    Thinking about purchasing this bottle. Think it’s worth it?

    Damn!
    Damn straight!  Over 1k per 1 ml.  That’s crazy money.  Only fluid that might ever fetch more for 1 ml might be Brad Pitts semen.

    If that's the case, I'll take the scotch.

    Got a bottle of Weller 12 today. Looking forward to the right time to crack it open.

    Cleaned out and restocked the upstairs cabinet this afternoon.

    Thanks.  Wife was out of town and I needed to make room in my downstairs bunker (so I can sneak my bourbon season finds in a little easier).

    Lol. Nice work. I’m hounding my local liquor store weekly right now to make sure I get a nice bourbon season haul. Looking forward to the good ones coming up soon.

    Not sure where you are, but in WV I’m expecting Parker’s Heriage any day now.  That should be followed by Four Roses 130th Limited Edition and Old Forester Birthday Bourbon...then Elijah Craig 18 and Barrell Proof...then Buffalo Trace Antique Collection and the Van Winkles...   Plus some randoms...  Fun, frustrating and expensive times...

    I’m in the Chicago suburbs. From what I’m told we are expecting a similar release pattern. Im not sure if I’ll be at the front of the line for Pappy, but should have a shot at the rest. Although my local wasn’t sure if they’d get all of the BTAC (they said Eagle Rare 17 and Stagg for sure but they were unsure on the William Larue Weller. Those are the 3 I’m after. I’m hopeful I get one bottle of Pappy though.

    I’m also hoping to grab a Michters toasted barrel. I hear good things.

    I definitely prefer the BTAC bourbons - especially WLW - although Handy is solid.  I’d buy Saz 18 if I see it, too...but ER17, GTS, and WLW are far superior in my opinion.

    According to my bourbon notebook, next week we should be seeing BTACs hit the shelves (or back rooms).  BOLO!  Let the fun begin.

    Aside from BTACs, have you ever grabbed any Blaum Bros.?  Better yet, do you have access to it?  If so, I’d be willing to discuss a trade or buy...if you’d be willing.  It’s one of those things I won’t likely see in WV.

    I won the Stagg last year. Just cracked it this weekend during a Myrtle golf trip.

    Same here. Never been lucky enough to try it. I was reading reviews by the “experts” and they said the 2018 batch was not as good as previous years. Probably a moot point for most of us, given the extremely low production of it.

    It must be nice to be around all that rare bourbon to know what is not up to snuff huh?
