    I'm done

    It is sad to say but I think I am done buying bourbon for a while. I was looking at my bar last night and figure I have just enough to hold me. That and I am looking at what the fall releases will cost me. I plan on the following
    2 bottles each of the 09 BTAC
    3 bottles of OFBB one to drink on to bunker and one to drink with my son when he turns 21
    1 bottle of Parkers heritage 3rd edition
    I figure all this will run me right at a grand.
    Time to start saving my pennies
    Is anyone else saving up for these?

    Re: I'm done

    If I can get the BTAC in WV, I'll pick it up for $42 a bottle. I can't afford VA anymore at $72 a bottle. I haven't cared for the OFBB in the past so have no plans to pick up any of that and I already have the Parkers bunkered. Except for the occasional low cost pick-up, I don't purchase bourbon anymore. I'm satisfied with what I have and look forward to opening new bottles on a regular basis. Even though most of the dusty bottles I've picked up have been for a song, the bunker is full so it's time to enjoy.

    According to the WV ABC website for April 2009, the BTAC's were listed as $42 a bottle.

    Re: I'm done

    Me too. I swear. But............... Want a list? (in no particular order)
    #1. Someone has something to trade.
    #2. I have something to trade.
    #3. I find something dusty or semi-dusty.
    #4. I find something out of the ordinary. For me or some one else. (See #1 and #2)
    #5. Another bourbon becomes a hot topic, and I know a store that has some bottles of it.
    #6. I meet another member of SB. (Again see #1 and #2)
    #7. I meet yet another member of SB. I then go dusty hunting with my new friend.
    #8. I go to my favorite grocery store and stop in the liquor department just because. Wow! When did they start stocking this?
    #9. I go to my favorite grocery store and stop in the liquor department just because. Wow! I can't believe it's on sale for such a good price.
    #10. A friend says, "Guess what I found?"
    #11. A friend says, "Look what I found. This one's for you."
    #12. Another liquor store is going out of business and is having a final clearance sale.
    #13. I hear through friends or family that another bar manager has some stuff that's not selling, and wants to know if I want it at a good price.
    #14. The Bourbon Of The Month is one that I don't have, or haven't even tried yet.
    #15. Someone sends me a sample, and it's really good.
    #16. Another liquor store announces the arrival of their own single barrel bottling.
    ......and so on, and so on, and so on. It's never ending. But who needs an excuse? It's as easy as quitting smoking. I've done it a half a dozen times. Joe

    Re: I'm done

    I won't rest until every liquor store has been stripped of every dusty...and some EWSB that I don't have yet. I pass on them and then kick my self in the ass because they were a few dollars more than usual.

    I know what you mean Joe.
    I have even challenged myself to see how few bottles I can buy and I end up losing.
