    Damn I just went to order a bottle and its sold out

    I hesitated initially because I already have a single barrel Peerless Rye that is unopened and it's pretty pricey.  But now I regret not jumping at it right away.

    I wonder if it came with that sticker. Would be pretty badass if it did. But that Peerless is pricey. Their bourbon finally dropped to $65 in my area, which I think is worth it. Probably won't try the rye at $100+...

    FINALLY found a Larceny Barrel Proof. Been looking the past two years with no luck. I paid $100 at a local shop that gouges, but I just needed to finally have a bottle. This C921 is really great. Sweet and silky with none of the tannic notes I get on the small batch. Was worth the price, especially given how impossible it's been for me to find...

    I have the C921 after missing out on all earlier batches, but I hear this one is the best. $100 isn’t too bad especially since you were looking for a while. I absolutely love this bottle and will check out future versions too. I definitely need a new Elijah Craig sometime soon. Haven’t bought a bottle since 2019. I heard A122 is really good.

    Ah, now I'm wishing I had grabbed one too. Oh well. I've always enjoyed their whiskeytube channel, but I'll probably enjoy it even more knowing they paid tribute to PJ...

    I agree, the Larceny C921 is pretty great. Not sure why it's so much harder to find than ECBP. Might be a regional thing. I managed to score all three 2021 batches of ECBP and thought they were all very good. Some people criticized the lower proofs, but I think they were all still damn good. Will happily buy all future batches of either...

    Latest Flaviar shipments just arrived. The whiskeys are for me. The tequila is for my wife. Looking forward to trying the Amador. I have become a fan of whiskeys finished in other barrels. I really like the Glenlivet Caribbean that is finished in rum barrels. Never tried any liquor finished in a wine barrel, so I thought what the hell I'll try it.

    Did you get A122? I picked one up and I’m loving it. Would be interesting to know how it stacks up against 21.

    Saw a bottle of Peerless rye for $107.

    Is that high or good?  I thought about buying it but this place is notorious for selling high and at tater prices.

    It’s about average. But I don’t think a standard bottle is really worth that price. I’d wait to see a barrel pick or wait until peerless ages there stuff longer. 

    And this is coming from someone who visited their distillery and had an amazing time. There’s just so much stuff you can get for cheaper.

    I haven't seen any 22 batches yet, but I was able to grab ECBP B521 and C921 AND 2 bottles of Larceny C921 on my drive to the Oakland shows! Feeling pretty good about that haul.

    Thanks Joe.  I’ve been doing store/barrel picks lately.

    Hey if anyone can get me in a BSM group and help me move 3 bottles I will gladly hook u up w a percentage.

    Congrats on the baby!  Never understood the appeal of ice in bourbon though?  The taste changes too much for me.

    Thanks!  I've always liked it on the rocks.  Those big ice cubes melt very slowly so it doesn't get watered down too much.

    thanks...I see what I did. I was searching the word rather than the title so it wasn't showing up and drove me insane
