    What a deal

    In case anyone out there is a big fan of Woodford Reserve and is looking to pick up a few bottles at an unbeatable price follow this link. $10.47 for a 750ml of Woodford Reserve?! Just passing this one along...

    Wow. Too bad they don't ship to NC or WV.

    In NC, I just paid $30 at the state ABC for 750 ml this past weekend.

    Re: What a deal

    Mark,

    I find that price to be literally too good to be true, not that I'm a big fan of WR. (I happen to like the Old Forester 100 better, and it's normally cheaper to boot.)

    I hope a StraightBourbonian orders it at that price, just to see if the merchant will honor it. My guess is that it's a cyber-typo.

    Even that Willie Nelson stuff hasn't been discounted that much.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    I do agree, I've had good luck and bad luck with this merchant. If it is a typo, they probably just won't honor the order, but heck, for that price it's probably worth the shot if one likes Woodford Reserve.

    Re: What a deal

    $10.47 does seem too good to be true even though I'm with Dave; I don't doubt the quality of the drink, I just don't care for it.
    One hundred three dollars for Sazerac Rye???? Now that's gotta be a typo! It's 36.99 at the local warehouse liquor place, and so is the ER 17. Wow.

    Re: What a deal

    I've noticed with this place that they either have a very good price on something or they have a ridiculous price no one with a sane mind would pay. During one sale I got Ezra B. Single Barrel for only $15 and Black maple Hill 16 for about $55 which wasn't that bad just to mention a few. I'm not going to order any either because I don't find anything that special about WF imho, but for a lover of it it may be worth the shot.

    I'd love to do a case split with anyone of honor that could legally take delivery and would be willing to smuggle the remainder into the old Confederacy. Ready & Willing - Linn

    Re: What a deal

    Sorry gang, it appears that price was a typo, tho' with this vendor you never know. They've removed that price tag from Woodford Reserve.

    I've purchased a few bargains from these fellows in the past, the shipping $ can be pretty brutal but at least they offer a few selections that my Kansas vendors don't.

    Re: What a deal

    From my experience with them, when they remove the 'buy' button like they did that means they have sold out. I'm not sticking up for them but I really think they probably just had either old bottles or too many around and discounted a certain amount to sell quick, and they probably did.
