    Just some of the bottles going out over the next few days.

  • I don't bourbon hunt anymore. I am willing to wait for supply to catch up to demand. I have a few bottles of Blanton's, an EHT, ER, Weller SR and Antique 107 as my rarities. BT and some others are just fine for me right now.

    Honestly I have enough bourbon to last me a few years right now. I went nuts.
    Same here. I've never waited in line and have plenty of Stagg(jr}, Taylor sb & rye, RR13, Blantons, and a few others. I can trade for others pretty much whenever I would like. 

    Living in a controlled state (Maine) has its perks. you just have to figure out which stores to hit.

    I forgot about my Stagg Jr...got that at a charity event

    But yeah...plenty of decent stuff to drink and keep the rarer bottles for special occasions. I know Buffalo Trace will have massive quantities in a few years due to their adding so many rickhouses

    I’ve been wanting to try a bottle of Stagg Jr but that’s gone now right?

    I can never tell. Some stores hold them out back of their stores and they also seem to pop back up around Christmas. 

    I've been too busy to look lately. I know of one place I was going to grab one but I'm going to be out of state when they put them on the shelves. My coworkers have been advised when and where to be if they want one.

    Most people don't even notice the "jr" missing. I think I still have an unopened bottle of the last batch with jr on it. I keep buying it, but to be honest have to be in the right mood to drink it. Even on ice it can be a little strong.

  • Three bottles of Weller 107 just arrived. Probably my favorite regular drinker. I was starting to run low and wanted to have some for the holidays. Next to impossible to get up here.

  • I was gifted a Weller full proof. hopefully it's as good or better than the 107.
  • Also picked up a bottle of Old Taylor. I can't get bit where I live. 
  • Got Miwinters Dram the other week.  Glad to have found it.

    Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof Rye is a phenomenal pour. Instantly one of my favorites. Also tried a New Riff single barrel this weekend that was excellent.

    Whomever is selling that is horrible.  The company didn't raise the price so neither should they.  It'll sit for that price with the amount they made.

    Go somewhere else.

    Both are excellent!  That Jack Daniels Single Barrel Proof Rye is favorite release!  I'm glad it's widely available in my area. I've had two different barrels, and both have been excellent!

    Picked up a Redbreast 27 over the break.  Fan-fucking-tastic!
    Best part, other than finding one....I got it at Total Wine for MSRP.  I was shocked to see it sitting in the case and had been looking for years.  I week later I was back at the same Total Wine and they had another in the case, listed at $200 more than what I paid.

    Found my first Magnus Cigar Blend last night.  Been wanting one for years, and i found it for $15 over MSRP.  Popped it last night, and it was amazing!

    Hence the uptick in the bottles at over 100K.

    Did the price stay the same?  It should have.  They did not raise the price from last year and are wayyy more abundant.

    I picked up a bottle of Old Forrester 1924. It's been tough finding much around here lately.

    I'd prob grab one if I saw one.  Heard it's good but not great, esp for the money.  I'd still get one to try it.
