Anyone in the Chicago area looking for some cool finds might want to check out Foremost Liquors on Elmhurst just north of Oakton. I stopped by tonight on my way back from Binny's and they had the following:

Blantons Silver - $29
IW Harper 12 Decanter - $19
IW Harper 15 - $29
Old Charters Proprietors Reserve - $29 (Oringinal BHC)
Very Special Old Fitzgerald - $29 (Original BHC)
EWSB 1990 - $???

BTW - Binny's in Des Plaines had a few George T Stagg and Sazerac 18 bottles from this years BTAC collection. Both were $59.

Happy drinking!!!

I thought the Blantons silver was for export only?

I believe you are correct, but they are selling it for what seems to be an incredible price.

Some very nice items there, I wish I lived closer to go get em.

Quite a few stores have managed to get BT to put a store selection of Blanton's in the Silver box...was this actually the 98 proof silver or just the 93 proof in the shiny box?

This was a 98 proof silver labeled Blanton's. I think they had about 4-5 bottles all priced at $29. I was shocked myself when I saw it...

If it's truly the 98p Silver, that's a great price. I paid $30 for mine last year overseas.

Hey Greg, what did you think of the Blanton's Silver?

05-07-2008, 01:24

The Blanton's Silvers have labels attached to them from the Illinois Liquor Commission stating they are distressed from a fire.

I thought I'd heard of everything but this is a new one for me. Sounds like a chance to sample some excellent whisky at an excellent price. And if any residual smoke got in the whiskey, it might actually make it better! :)
