    EC12 is around 24.99 in Indy and I just bought Blanton's for 43.99 which is exceptional. I think WTRB is close to 40 so even with the price increases, your prices aren't too bad.

    Heaven hill had a price increase recently. I would assume it is across the board in every state.

    Same with BT.

    Same with BF.

    Rinse repeat.

    Retailers operate on a markup and margin. When the price increases for them, expect it to increase for the consumer.

    Some places will buy in big when price increases are on the horizon to keep prices below the competition. Others will creep prices up rather than a big jump.

    Spotted: the new vintage (2003) of EWSB! Also, the solitary store I saw with ECBP on display is now out-of-stock.

    Okay, we've had the new DSP-1 Rittenhouse Rye 100 for a while now and just got the New Jim Beam Craft products. I'm tempted by the 12yo, but just a little.

    I like the timing of that.... I'd say they'll be much cheaper than buying them here in Oz

    Re: Honolulu Bourbon News

    For the Hawaii members or those coming to Hawaii I have a suggestion for food and whiskey to try. On the corner of Nuuana and Merchant Streets are two Irish pubs, Murphy's and O'Tooles. The first serves food as well as a nice bar. Not sure on the whiskey selection but safe to assume it is at least decent. Currently sitting at O'Tooles finishing a pour of Ritt BIB. The whiskey selection is good, they allow smoking, as well as bringing food from Murphy's. Service and atmosphere is also good.

    Something new at the local Costco, Four Roses Single Barrel! Not the first appearance of this expression, but the least expensive @ $40+tax. To put it in perspective, tho, I bought a case of TPS selected (a while ago, when they were still shipping) and my total (with shipping to HI and 10% discount) came to $40/bottle.

    Nice. Hope it's a permanent thing and not just for the holidays.

    Just read an email that a local liquor store is doing a dinner/tasting with Harlen Wheatley as the guest speaker. Woohoo they are starting to pay attention to us. The event is on Dec 13. Unfortunately I am working the grave so will be missing it.

    Whoa! PHC POH has arrived! Weller SR and OWA are here! Some EHT offerings, too. Prices aren't great, but I took home an OWA for $25 [and that's okay].
