    That actually worked for me once but the owner was my client so that may have helped.

    It has worked on occasion. Never with bourbon but I did have success with a particular rum. And occasionally with an uncommon mixer like Cocchi Americano or a specialty bottle like Pineau des Charentes or sometimes a particular beer or brewery line. Although for the most part these days the larger good stores all carry pretty much the same thing.

    Re: Threshold for Cracking Open A Special Bottle

    Reading this thread has inspired me to open a few bottles have I have recently acquired. I think I will start tomorrow night and open one every night until the New Year is here. On the list to open: 2012 WLW, 2012 GTS, 2012 THH, PVW 15, PVW 20, ORVW 10/107 made in Lawrenceburg, and a FRSB LE 2012. I am looking forward to each and every one of them, just have to figure out which one to open first! Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

    I let my taste buds determine where to go next. I usually start out on the bottom shelf or a standard pour to see if I am " in the zone" and go up from there. If I am firing on all cylinders then I will make a move to the cherished goods.
