    mj1angier, I really like the Yellowstone. They have one that is on the harder list to get. When I find it, it will be mine. Enjoy

    Haven’t tried the Talisker yet. The Ardbeg is surprising. It’s not a smack in the face as you might suspect. I think that peaty whiskeys that mature for longer periods lose that smack in the face for a more balanced profile. I think the 19 Ardbeg and the 25 Laphroaig that I have tried are my most favorite whiskys. The peat marries with the other flavors for a very rounded flavor. My opinion and I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. Cheers!

    I just went to the package shop tonight to see if the prices have changed. The manager said that he did increase the price of a couple higher end scotches by $10. Everything else looked the same. Not being a big scotch drinker, not sure I wanted to buy the higher end bottles.

    Wanted to see if the prices of these have gone up. Same as a week ago so they came home with me. The rum was on sale to boot. I am not going down a rabbit hole but a damn sink hole. 20200204_193837.jpg

    Check to see if your county ABC store has a facebook page. Ours does and posts where and when and what they will be releasing each week of the most requested topshelf stuff.

    I am baby sitting down in New Orleans for my daughter. The wedding party is staying at the Waldorf in the French Quarter (well 2 blocks away) and noticed that the had a small bottle of Sazerac Rye for $42. That is nuts. Took a walk 1/2 block from the motel a bought the same size bottle for $13.99. And no I am not paying for the room.

    How was it? I’m about to give up on ever finding one at retail so how much is it worth? Thanks for any input!

    Well recently I've tried Bib and Tucker, Elijah Craig, Bullet 10 year, Old Forester bonded 100 proof and retried Knob Creek. I was not a fan of Bib and Tucker (disappointed) and Knob creek at all for the price. Bullet 10 year was a bit better and I'm pretty impressed with Old Forester 100 proof (vs standard 86) and my current go to on ice.

    I got lucky and picked up a bottle of Henry McKenna Bottled in Bond but have not cracked the seal.

    Delicious

    We did a blind flight with Blantons, Elmer T Lee, and the Rock Hill. It was nearly impossible to tell them apart, but we both chose the RH as first. My guess is we both liked the extra proof, but it was seriously so close it was splitting hairs.

    I personally didn't feel like that was worth the money when I bought one. I haven't met too many like that.
