I noticed there was a $100 challenge in 2008. I thought it would be fun to revisit the idea.

You are given $100 to spend on bourbon. Assume all recent bottlings are available to you. What would you get?

I'm also going to assume that I can only buy it in my town.

Four Roses Small Batch $29
Four Roses Single Barrel $39
Eagle Rare 10/90 $29

You guys are gonna be thirsty if you plow your whole years whiskey budget on only three bottles. I think I can score 10 bottles of HH BIB 6yo Green Label for about $100.00

4R's Mariage and a 4R1B.
That's about a 100 bucks.

Got to go with PVW15 ($50), Weller 12 ($25) and a pair of VOB BIB's ($12 each). Hmm...but what about Rittenhouse Rye or WT Rye? Damn, that's a hard one, George.

OGD 114 25.00
Benny's Weller 12yo 25.00
Eagle Rare 25.00
2 bottles of VOB BIB 25.00

I can't get the Weller or VOB here but if I could that's where my 100 would go.

I'm with Joe. Although by the time it got over here it would cost me a whole lot more!

Not including the oppressive Illinois and Cook County taxes I did bring in the following 4 under $100 recently.

PVW 15-$39.99-on sale
Binny's Weller 12-$24.99
OGD BIB-$15.99
VOB BIB-$12.99

Total = $93.96. Having spent some years immersed in the wine world it is still inconceivable to me that this type of quality can be had for these prices.

ER 10--$24.95
Elmer T Lee--$22.59
OWA 107 l liter--$22.59
WT 101---$15.39
Weller SR--$13.59



That's my shopping list and I'm stickin' to it.:cool:

Great proposal!

I'm assuming that I have to give bottles that are available to me.

2x OWA 375ml from 03: 19.98
1x OGD 114 $21
1x PVW 15 $59.99.

I'll get the extra dollar from my piggy bank!

As an alternative,

3x OWA 375 (03) 29.97
1x OGD 114 $21
1x Er10 $30
1x 1.75 EWB $18.

And I'll buy ten Atomic Fireballs with the extra dollar!

Four Binny's Weller 12's for a hundred bucks is pretty hard to beat IMO.

I have such a hard time fathoming any Pappy products being "on sale". That just doesn't happen down here, ever.

Ok, these prices do not figure KY's new 6% sales tax on alcohol.

PVW 15 at 52 bucks
OWA at 19 bucks
ETL at 29 bucks

Close to never here also, along with just finding/getting the 15, but this one particular store even had it listed in print for it's weekly sale. A year ago it had the Lot B on a one week special so the radar was up. I've only seen one other store here, that once had both proofs of the ORVW at a great "sale" price and that's it.

There's also the occasional Binny's discount coupon...10% for today....which gives me the $50 challenge of either 2 more Weller 12's or 1 of the new barrel strength FRSB's. Such a spot to be in :grin: .

I have heard amazing things about the Binny's Weller 12's. Then again, I've never really seen too many complaints on any 4R release...sounds like a tough spot to be in.
