I found several bottles of Russell's Reserve 101 proof and Wild Turkey 12 year at a small liquor store for $25 dollars a bottle. Should I get them?

No, I would suggest leaving them there and telling me where they are.

Russ Reserve 90 proof retails for about $30 here, and I consider that a good but not great value. 101 proof for $25 sounds a lot better.

The RR101 and the WT12 are both rare finds and should be grabbed and bunkered. Don't pass those up.

You should buy all of them. You will love the WT 12 one of the best bourbons ever made, and the RR 101 is also very good and $25/bottle is ridiculously low priced. A great find.

I agree, except you should tell me, not barturtle. I can be trusted not to drive the 500 miles to Columbia.

I just knew that distance off the top of my head; it's not as if I mapped the trip or anything.

I missed RR 101, but WT 12YO was one of my favorite bourbons when it was available. I should have bought a case or two, but had no idea it was goin' down when it did.

NOTE TO CAMPARI: YOU COULD RE-INTRODUCE WT 12YO 101 JUST ANY OLD TIME NOW AND I WOULD BE FOREVER GRATEFUL. Particularly while Jimmy is still around to tend it.

Got the Wild Turkeys. The also have several bottles of Old CHarter Proprieter's Reserve for $35 a bottle. Is this a good buy?

$35 is a fairly typically price point for the OCPR. This was part of the Bourbon Heritage Collection and long since stopped production. So, it is hard to find, but not as hard as those WT 12. I would suggest buying one bottle to see if you like it. Old Charter is a very high corn %, so it may or may not be something you like.

Absolutely. Read about it here (http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7736) and here (http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12307).

I would love to get my hands on some.

I've only had the WT101 and enjoyed it, a bit musty but that didn't stop me from knocking the whole 750ml out. Must try the RUSS RES.

Was this in Columbia? The last bottle of WT 12 I found was in Columbia - I thought I had scoured all the stores in that area before I moved to MI 4 years ago. Definitely buy it at $25/bottle.

It's actually in Newberry. I haven't found hardly anything in the Columbia stores.
