    Picked up the early times a couple weeks ago. It’s OK. I didn’t see the Old Grand-Dad, will have to swing by this week and see if they still have some.

    Are you coming to the RTP area for the holidays? It is all over the place up here. PM me your travel route and I’ll point you to a store that should have it, or I have 1-2 bottles for you if needed.

    I was hoping that they guy did not pick up the bottle of Eagle 17. Was told if he does not pick it up by today I can have it. My luck it was gone. The guy at the shop said that he had some Elijah Craig and said I was not a fan of EC. Then he said it was the 18 year old. Never had the 18 before so decided to take it home with me.
    Anybody tried it? For the price I hope it is better than the regular EC.

    Found a bottle of Very Old Barton today on our ABC store’s one-per-day shelf. Only one left. Pretty good drink for the money. I was surprised.

    todays haul. The Dewars was supposed to be the 27. Sent me the 21 instead. Been that kind of week! The Aberlour Is a second bottle for one I really enjoy. The Old Fitz is a $15 ish bottle that a business associate of mine said was his favorite “budget” bourbon. Enough of a recommendation for me to try it. Cheers!

    That Dickel just won whiskey of the year. Get em while you can cause the price will go up. I really like it and wish it was readily available in this area.

    FYI, that Dickel BiB is one of the oldest BiB you'll find at 13yo! Its tasty and an amazing value!

    My neighbor gave me this for Christmas, never had it before. Neither has he, he told me to text him either a thumbs up or a thumbs down when I open it.

    Asked a friend at the package shop to get me another bottle of George Dickel BIB. When I walked in he also handed be a bottle of Knob Creek 12. Not really a fan of KC but had to take it.

    Pretty good haul today. Been after the Micters 10 for a while! Been a minute since I’ve “found” a Blanton’s. The JW Dandt is a $15 bib for a taste test with JS Brown and Very Old Barton. Cheers!

    You stated they sent you the wrong Dewars. I thought you could not have liquor shipped to NC?

    I might know a few places that ship here. A search on this site should reveal some info on this subject.

    How about a future purchase? In the garage/workshop/reloading room/man cave I have a refrigerator out there for drinks (water, beer,Gatorade) and in the freezer I have a couple bottles of vodka, rum, American Honey and used to have a bottle of Tin Cup. Thinking about getting another bottle tin Cup Bourbon. I know it only matters to me and what I like but interested in other's options on tin Cup.

    Could not find the Tin Cup 10 so I settled on Evan Williams Single Barrel. I know this is a middle self bourbon. But the first time I had it was about 8 years ago. It was really a good pour. When that bottle was gone I bought another one that I had to mix it with ginger ale to drink it. Lets see what this one brings.

    Interesting.......in October, November and December all I wanted to do was see what came in at the package shop. Today I had 15 to 20 minutes free about 1/2a mile from where I always buy and did not stop in even to say hello.

    You've been killing it recently! Easy to get caught up in the fever and then look around and say "whoa!" The hunt is thrilling and easy to overdo. I am planning on pumping the brakes for awhile. Scotch tariffs have got me scared though
    and I've been concentrating on that recently. Found out today that Lagavulin 16 is going up $20 per bottle! Yikes!

    Went to the package shop to see if they still had some gift sets left over from Christmas and they did but not the set that had the small glasses. I was getting ready to walkout and Barbara (Always Right - my wife) said that she thought I need some of that scotch everybody likes so I walked out with a bottle of Aberfeldy. VERY GOOD!

    How's that Talisker Select Reserve? I like their regular stuff a bunch, as well the Storm. I'm guessing the Ardbeg 19 is a big, peaty monster? I had a Bunnahabhain 18 that would put hair on yer chest. Good stuff, but not a whisky for the meek.

    Anyone know anything about the Barrel Whiskey, infinite barrel project in the middle? Stopped in an ABC in Elkin right off 77 this week and picked these up.
