View Full Version : Sam's Sale

02-05-2003, 14:55
I got an e-mail from Sam's today, indicating they have a sale going on now. I got in an order for Blanton's, which I've never tried, but I know many of you like it a lot. It's on sale for $39 rather than the usual $49. Also ordered Virginia Gentlemen, 90 proof, based on recommendations I've read here. I'll be looking forward to trying the ORVW 15 YO, 107 proof, which is also on sale.

I also learned that Sam's has purchased a cask of Pappy VW 20 Year Old, which Sam's will release as an exclusive bottling in the future.

The address http://www.samswine.com/catalog_intro.htm works better for me.

Wow, this is indeed quite a sale. Their entire inventory seems to be 15-20% off.

These strike me as incredible bargains: Elmer T. Lee S.B. for 15.99, Eagle Rare 17 yo for 32.99, Michter's for 25.99, Old Rip 10 yo 107 for 19.99, Rock Hill Farms for 33.99, Van Winkle "Lot B" 12 yo for 26.99, and--at a price we will probably never see again--A.H. Hirsch 16 yo for 53.99.

Very tempting. But, I will have to remember this info for next year.

I just spent a bunch in the last month on my Stagg stash and several other bottles I have picked up this past week. My wife would kill me if I ordered anymore. http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/crazy.gif

Yes I have noticed with extreme envy the Stagg Stash that you have been compiling. I'd say you will have a nice amount of Stagg to tide you over. If I had all that, I wouldn't have been buying anything either! http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/wink.gif

I can top that for sheer angst, aggravation, and annoyance. The bunch I spent last month was at Sam's, and my order included a couple of top, top shelf items that are now on sale. If I had waited, I could have saved enough for a bottle of GTS (at its original price in this area).

Ouch. http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif I hear that. I ordered the GTS from Sam's before I found it much cheaper in WV ($48/bottle including shipping vs. $37 off the shelf).

Looks like you need a big drink to console yourself! http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smirk.gif
