    $100 Challenge - 2009

    I noticed there was a $100 challenge in 2008. I thought it would be fun to revisit the idea.

    You are given $100 to spend on bourbon. Assume all recent bottlings are available to you. What would you get?

    You guys are gonna be thirsty if you plow your whole years whiskey budget on only three bottles. I think I can score 10 bottles of HH BIB 6yo Green Label for about $100.00
