A store in Livonia, MI has asked me to set up a tasting for a private barrel of BT and Weller 107. Is anyone local interested? If so, what date and time would you prefer. Our feedback will determine the selection on the bourbon.

Sounds fun. Does the store owner have a month in mind?

He called me today and said he had 10 samples. I would assume we could schedule it anytime. Sooner the better.

February 2 works best for me. I would be available on a weeknight too, as long as it's not a Thursday.

I can generally make anything after 6pm work so just let me know when and where and I be there.

My dad, whom some of you met at the KBF last September, might be interested. He isn't big on the "inter-web", so I haven't gotten him signed up on SB yet - but if someone could either post or PM me the details on whatever everyone else agrees to, I'd love to pass along to him if no one objects. He isn't too far from Livonia.

Been a crazy week. Let me take a head count and will get back with the last couple people to inquire.

So, what the story. Have not heard from you. Is this still on?

Yes it is still on. My entire family had the flu last weekend and into early this week. Didn't get a chance to get online much.

Good Day All-

I trust you are doing well.

Want to thank Tony for putting this together. It was a great time with Amy, Josh and some others. My wife and son stopped by as well.

We got to try some of his previous barrel bottlings- Eagle Rare, Elijah Craig 12, Evan Williams SB, and I think Elmer T. Lee. From there we tried the samples of Weller and BT, it was nice as we all seemed to agree on the barrel we liked the most.

The owner of the shop, Loui(sp?), was a great host and provided us with a warm spot to hang out in, was able to have a cigar, and he got some great middle eastern food for us to enjoy. And to top it off after the tastings he cracked a PHC Golden Anniversary. A great night and I am glad I got to spend it with some of the SB members and it was cool to have my newly 21 year old son there as well.

Here is Myself, Tony, Amy, Josh, Loui.

Damn, you didn't say Middle Eastern food was going to be there!!!
I would have made my palate available if I knew.

Looks like you all had a great time. I really wanted to make this but I was pretty sick. So how were the samples?

That's quite a dent you guys put into that PHC. That's my kind of store. Seems like a great place.
