    Hey Morgan, can you PM or post the details of the store and if it's a chain store or independant one? I'm in NSW for the weekend and would definately pick up some Benchmark if I can find it here.

    Even though this cut in BT Proof has been coming for over a year and I have stock piled heaps, It is still very disappointing. Again we are given the short end of the stick.

    On a brighter note the local availabilty of ER10/90 at Liquor Barons and Dans gives us something to be happy about.

    Currently sipping my way through some Four Roses & ETL
    Them good old boys were drinking whisky and rye...

    Yeah, I know right.......I must say this was over about a 7 hour period and they were about 10-15ml pours.
    It was an awesome day with great food and company, and the standouts were (in no particular order) VXOF, WT KS 94, Ritt 25, FR mariage, GTS09
    btw, who follows Red Stag with George T Stagg??

    Scott
    Wow! That's an impressive day of libations Scottie, even if you did only do 15ml pours. Such an array of different profiles, many I'm sure were incredible - oh the envy...

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.
