I have seen some of these 375ml bottles and was wondering if they are only available at the gift shop? Has anyone seen them instore? I wouldn't mind grabbing a couple.

Cheers

I got mine at a Liquor Barn in Lexington for $2 cheaper than at the BT giftshop.

It was $14.99. My maths ain't too good.

14.99 at that price I will be picking up some for sure when I am in KY . I didn't know the price and I have only seen it sold for 35plus on a certain auction site.

Interesting. I don't remember seeing at the gift shop.... but it's probably not something I would have been looking for at the time.

It's a new product for 2009, Cam.

Seems a bit excessive when you can get a fifth of aged BT for $12.

Thanks Scott, that definately explains it.....and means I wasn't totally blind :D (no pun intended)

Was the bourbon cream liqueur there when you were in the states? That's yummy stuff...especially in coffee.

Yeah, but it's 125 proof, and it's kinda cool to do a head to head with a white dog and then two or more aged expressions. Plus here BT is $23.96 state min.

....or are you taking about another (cheaper) BT mashbill #1 expression?

Can you please tell me where I can get BT for $12. If I find it for that I am stocking up.

Ox is on it. I am referring to Benchmark, which is aged Buffalo Trace (the distillery, not the bourbon).

I guess I did not realize the white dog was 125 proof, that makes it a bit better. But to be honest, I can't blame them. They aren't really marketing this as a product to sip on regularly, but rather as a novelty and you are paying a novelty price.

Saw this in Manhattan for 20 bucks. Still on my budget freeze but keeping an eye out for everyone else in the meantime. Anyone need/want it?

It's in michigan now too, for $14.99 strangely enough. I haven't bought a bottle since I still have plenty left in mine.

I grabbed one at Binny's in Chicago for $17. It was $15 until our booze taxes were raised.

Well, yes, as a matter of fact.

Of course, what I'd really like to get is some rye white dog.

Releasing their white dog as a product is the best example yet of Sazerac's genuine commitment to being the enthusiast's producer.

I'm still amazed at the price the market will bear on this stuff. Chuck, maybe you can clarify. Are there more taxes involved with releasing unaged spirit? I wouldn't think so but who knows? I just can't see the justification on the price of this stuff when there is no cost of warehousing or any loss to evaporation.

How you like that pic? I took it and posted it.:grin: Next batch returns in March. We're sold out currently. I echo Chucks praise for BT's release of their White Dog. Another example of leading the way. Anyone had Bernheims White Dog? Or... for that matter ... Beams? Both were delicious. I hope everyone puts out some for us.:bowdown: :bowdown:

Agreed. Another way they could show their affection for the enthusiast is by getting rid of the jackass BT salesman here in Michigan.

Scott, seems Joe might be able to get you some for slightly cheaper. PM me if you still want me to check it for you.

Found the BT White Dog in Ann Arbor, MI (A&L Wine Castle) for $17.

Very interesting. Haven't had anything like it since I had a mason jar of Kentucky 'shine a few years ago.

Almost reminded me of sweet creamed corn.

I agree, it's quite nice. We are lucky enough to have a really fine unaged corn whiskey on the state list too, Virginia Lightning. If you like that raw, corny flavor, I don't think you can do much better than VL.
