View Full Version : Spin-off/ Your last $15.00

10-30-2002, 19:14
I enjoyed the comments of What Would Be Your Last Drink? It prompted me to think of not our favorites that usually are some of the most expensive, but if we had to spend our last $15 on a bottle of booze, what would it be? I would like to hear comments/feelings on our favorite affordable/everyday pours. For me "The Turk" rules! It doesn't matter-I'll take the 80 or the 101. Something about that yummy woody flavor that I taste. I'm anxious to hear everyones thoughts. See ya, H'wood http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/cool.gif

Ancient Ancient Age 10 Year, no question. To Boot, some places will sell you a 1.75 for $15!!

Since $15 bucks won't get you very far at PA liquor stores, I'd go for a pint of Knob Creek. I'd be enjoying a damn good whisky and would have enough of it to prepare me to meet the Grim Reaper.

Fifteen smackers?! Easy call - a pack of Winstons and a pint of Knob Creek! http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif

There's not many "fifth" bottles of bourbon that I can get around here for 15 bucks or less. The only one that fits the bill and is also worth it's weight in gold would be Very Old Barton BIB. That would be my pick. Perhaps Evan Williams 7 yr. would be a runner-up.

Can you spare a few cents?? I can't even get a pint of Knob Creek for under 15 bucks! http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/confused.gif

Troy most folks say I don't have any sense! http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/blush.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif

Not certain I can find it for $15 - but I bet it'd be close... Elijah Craig 12 yrs old.

Knowing where to shop is half the battle. I can get 750 ml bottles of Old Charter 12 yr "The Classic" for $15 at one local shop, David Nichols 1843 BIB (really ~ 7 year old Old Fitz BIB) for $15.50 at another, and Old Fitz 1843 for $15.50 anyplace. Of the 3, I think I've got to go with Old Charter 'The Classic'.

10-31-2002, 14:02
I guess I'd get a bottle of Beam White, yeah I know I could spend my last 15 bucks wiser but since we are talking about the last 15 bucks, I would be terribly depressed and the Beam would fit the mood.

10-31-2002, 18:37
Well, you can't get anything decent in Alabama for $15, so I will have to say a 375 ml Wild Turkey 101. http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif


10-31-2002, 20:03
You can get a bottle of KC for $15?? I can only get a 375ml for about $12.00 here. But then again I would probably search for a bottle of MM on sale for $14.99 http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif

Here in Chicago, I can get a 1.75 L of Old Fitz for <$15, so that would be my choice.

T'Carl, I love Old Charter! I drink it regularly, and obviously drink it whether it was my last few bucks or not. Thanks for the reply. I posted this to see what people like to drink affordably. You know in the $15-20 range, give a few cents. My old man was drinking "Charter" years ago. I guess you go with what you know. http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif I used to sneak "a pull" when I was a kid! Don't tell anyone. http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif See ya, H'wood http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/cool.gif

For my last $15 it would be a toss up between EC12 and MM...no wait, forget that. It would easily be OF 100. I forgot about that one for a moment since all I have in the house at this time is the OF86, which is quite forgetable IMHO. http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif

11-04-2002, 18:27
Jeff, I hear you! I like the MM, and ALL of the OF stuff! Partner, as I've made clear before the EC12 http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/confused.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/mad.gif wheeeeeew...I'm going to stay away from it.....far away. Thanks, H'wood http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/cool.gif

Old Forester 100 proof is $15.95 here in NC. Does that count?

11-13-2002, 20:01
Is OF the Old Fitz or the Old Forrester? I can't get the former here in NC, but I love what I've tasted of it. Here in NC, the Olf Forrester 100 has become the daily pour. Hmmmmm.

11-14-2002, 05:39
OF=Old Forrester. You know, I have never tried any of the olf Fitz bottlings. I probably should as I like wheated bourbons and there are only so many of then to enjoy.

11-14-2002, 07:48
Absolutely, Who cares about a buck or two!? http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif A great choice in my book! See ya, H'wood http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/cool.gif
