Time for me to kick in a bottle for the liquor cabinet at my synagogue, so I picked up a 750 of OGD 86 proof. We're a very traditional, old-school European congregation with working-class roots, though these days we're mostly college students, academics and professionals. Every Saturday, we serve a sit-down lunch after Sabbath services; nothing fancy, usually tuna and egg-salad sandwiches, salad, etc. At lunch, whiskey, vodka, brandy and liquers are set out, and people might have a half-ounce thimblefull or two.
For home, I picked up an OGD114 because my current bottle is just past half-empty. For $21/750ml, it's an amazing value.
Bought them last night. I'll be cracking open the PVW tonight

Scored 4 bottles of TPS label 4RSB from another Hawaii member that brought in a case. Thank you again Maui, I cant wait to try it. Coincidentally the case purchase was made the day my daughter was born so 1 bottle will be put off to the side for a special occasion.

Calling my local shop every week for their next shipment of BT products, hasnt hit CA yet to my knowledge.
Was reading all these prices on VW Rye on the last couple pages and I also paid $180 in CA for it in August. Got a 15 for $140 also. freaking prices are ridiculous out here, but atleast my brother bought the 15 from me for what I paid. : )
