    Re: G'Day from Aus

    A shop I would reccomend would be Spiro's at Toowong, they have a great selection including things like OGD 114. Neil (lonemango) could give you a better idea of their range/pricing

    Re: Hi! From Down Under

    That's pretty steep for EWSB. You should be able to get it $10 cheaper, unless it has had a huge increase in the last 4 months. Are you looking at Vintage Cellars or Liquorland?

    If you are close...

    Re: Hi! From Down Under

    $15 difference seems weird, what were the 2 prices. Sounds like EC12 is either incredibly cheap or they have jacked up the EWSB.

    Well I recently got a bottle of this, as you would know as you posted it to me, and you have just given me the push to open it.
    I will post my thoughts when I have done so. :grin:

    I like Coke, thought I don't tend to drink too much of it these days. Every now and then I go on a vanilla coke binge.
    I used to mix my bourbon with coke, but now I can't stand it. These days if I...

    I finished my first bottle on the weekend. When I first opened it, I found it to be very similar to a Kentucky Spirit I have open. In saying that, it is a very good bottle of KS.

    Jack,

    I have had Virgin bourbon, and I was quite impressed at the bang-for-the-buck.
    $36 for a 101 proofer is good value......I have paid more for worse bourbons.
