    I definitely have it...I couldn't sleep last night as I was trying to decide if I should get another bottle of Pappy 20 or JRPS 17 year for the bunker durning the Binny's 15% off sale...

    I'm sure I do. I spent over $300 on bourbon at the KBF. I had to take a trip to Milwaukee tonight, so naturally I stopped at a couple places on the way back. Spent about $60.00 more on bourbon tonight. My name is Joe, and............

    Re: Do you have it?

    I am starting to think I have it. Last night, I was at a gathering enjoying some wonderful food with friends when somebody mentioned that a couple party goers went to the liquor store. A light went on in my head: this is a not-so-great neighborhood and the store could be holding treasure! I conned a friend into taking me to the store and quickly found 6 bottles.

    When I read posts on this forum from people who pass over dusties of S-W juice I am flushed with jealousy. I have considered driving to the dusty-rich areas and bringing home a lifetime supply.

    Re: Do you have it?

    Here are a few thoughts:

    Given my current rate of consumption, increased by 20%, and spread across all spirits, if I should start drinking only one bottling, just one of my favorites, It won't last more than 5 or 6 months.

    Any effort to amass a lifetime supply would have to be a individual lifetime supply of ALL of my current favorites.
