    They will both be tried, in time. I can assure everyone of that! Price-wise, the ETL is $15-$20 cheaper per bottle - I've seen it everywhere from $26-$30 per bottle. Blanton's has been $45-$47.

    The price difference is packaging, no difference in quality.

    Ah Squire, but there IS no price difference here! ($34 each) Come to Honolulu and drink Blanton's on the cheap.

    Thanks for the notes. I'll definitely be grabbing a bottle tonight after work.

    Maui I'm still trying to calculate how much Bourbon I'll have to drink for the savings to cover the cost of a plane ticket.

    Cool, thanks for the input. Still obviously very 'new' to the serious side of this, so now I can grab a bottle of ETL and not feel like I'm settling.

    Re: Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    I'm seeing WT Tradition readily available again. Anyone running out to buy this?

    Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    I don't know if it is any more available than it was last year or the year before that. It has been a slow mover.
