    Re: The case for 1792

    Well Mr. Mamba, you still have time. Sounds like your getting a group together in your local. Maybe as a group you can form a preppers group for mass bunkering.

    Meruck, you ever see "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre?"

    Group bunkering is a BEEG NO-NO!

    Squire, if you knew the origins would V17 make your list?
    What's bunkerable to one person is not bunkerable to the next.

    I really enjoyed the last release of Vintage 17, which was wheated Bernheim, and I bunkered some bottles. I happen to love a well-aged wheater, there aren't that many around, the label is now gone for good, I enjoyed it, I could afford it, so therefore it was bunkerable to me. As we all now, however, it may not be for everyone. Some don't care for wheaters. Some think it was priced too high. Some just didn't like the Whiskey.

    It's only bunkerable if you want it.

    Well said White Dog,

    As you put it its only bunkerable if you like it and I dont plan on bunkering for others. I am a big fan of the Wheaters for sure so I am interested in this one. I guess I need to look at the Burhiems as well, they may be more available as they actually produced the whisk(e)y.

    I just finished another bottle of this last week Dog. From the first pour to the last pour, a very good bourbon. Never really thought about bunkering any, but you got me thinking. It has an age statement (7yr), it's over 100 proof (101), it's sourced whiskey, it's delicious, and it's only $14.40 in my county ( up from $13.85 last year), and it won't be around forever. A definite no brainer. I gotta go, I'm heading to the liquor store.

    Sorry, man. Not trying to cause a ruckus about Old Ezra.

    Although based on breaking news, OGD 86pr has just seen sales spike.

    Maybe this thread should be moved over to the secret "Premium" forum.

    Breakfast Club. Great quote.

    I also have a couple V17 bunkered, in fact those are the only bottles in my lonely bunker aka hidden from the wife behind dinning table leaf in the closet.

    Absolutely. There's nothing wrong with bunkering some trade bait, either, but ONLY if you're absolutely positive you'll have takers. I made the mistake early on of picking up things I thought others would want and ended up drinking them myself. Thankfully, they were pretty good.
