Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!
ORVW 10/107 is like caramelized toffee, MI state minimum is $39.95 plus 6% sales tax.
ORVW 10/90 isn't available in the mitten. I did get some from out of state and there really is no reason to buy any more when 10/107 is available.
It's watered down to much, it gives you hope but it doesn't deliver.
BTW, does the Parkersback screen name have anything to with "The Man With The Getaway Face"?
I went into the store after work, and picked up their last bottle of Pappy 15. He is apparently very apprciative of the Pappy, as he cautioned me to "be very careful because it's the last 15 year old".
To make up for it, I discovered he has several bottles of the Pappy rye, so I took one of those home too.
Happy to say that I finally picked up a bottle each of Weller 12 and the 2010 Parker's Heritage Collection. This was the first time I saw either of them in a store.
My screen name is a reference to one of the last (and best) short stories ever written by Flannery O'Connor, entitled, "Parker's Back."
Great day. 1 Pappy 20 for 89.99, and 1 Handy 2009 for 52.99.
I'll go back for more Pappy 20 when the wife's not watching the finances so closely. This store's been sitting on them for awhile.
Went hunting again, largely a research trip as I'm starting to take and keep notes on prices and who-has-what. Found what I believe is my first real good bottle - which got its own thread. Also bought my first but definitely not last VOB 100 proof, and found two bottles of Old Heaven Hill which I'd never seen before, the NAS bottle, BIB.
I went to probably the biggest, best stocked store in a 50 mile radius, so large that they actually had a place on the shelf for ORVW 10/107 and PVW 13 year. Both slots were empty and dusty. I asked when they expected more in, and he said they never had any idea. They got whatever they got, and I could put my name on the call list if I wanted. They would start at the top of the list and work down it until it's all gone. I ain't holding my breath.
Anyone know of any stores between Nashville and Atlanta that are heavily stocked and have Pappy and other truly top shelf stuff?
Gotta make it somehow on the dreams you still believe...
