    Picked up an ODG 114 today, was on sale for $17.99! I will probably go back for more this week.

    You found Larceny in IN? That's interesting. Just to warn you - the rebates are no good here. You'll have to have them sent to someone out of state.
    Mea culpa. I went back to my local store and they didn't have it. I think sometimes I see pictures of bottles in my head. I thought I had seen it but I must not have. However, I can safely say that I have seen it and own it now!

    Howdy, Jim Beam black label. It's $20/750 ml bottle here in Shreveport/Bossier City (La.). I slightly prefer Old Forester Signature, but for $25..Hmm..not worth the extra 5 smackers.

    JPS 21-overpriced, and 18-ok priced, but have enough. No 17,did look through the pile. Also had a EW23- too much for me.

    look down, EC18, good price, getting excited, I really like this bottle.



    then I glance my head just slickly to the right, multiple colors of PHC looking at me!!!!!! Blended, cognac, wheat, and my ultimate fave, the golden. Raging, woohoo excited!!!!!!!



    Heart racing excitement. Stunning day.

    get back, and tell wife about purchase, she ask's, are you sure that's all, there isn't anything else???

    Oh yah, she's a keeper!!!

    Great finds indeed and kudos to the wife,my wife is the same way it's amazing how they put up with the obsession sometimes,but I guess by now they have gotten used to it.

    OGD 114 (uh oh, different bottle code than the most recently bunkered, hope it's a good batch), benchmark no. 8 (never tried before), and woodford (never tried before, either, and have avoided too long). also picked up some 5 and 12yr el dorado rum and am considering going back for a 15yr.

    Would like your thoughts on the Benchmark Bully, the recent bottlings in our area show more depth and complexity than the previous entry level stuff it was.

    Squire, I just bought a Benchmark "old #8" in Kentucky after a store owner was sampling it. At $8.99 for a 750 I was curious and after tasting was sold. Not rough at all, and at 80 proof an easy sipper/mixer. One of my favorite bottom shelfers currently and it is of course "The bourbon by which all others are measured" !

    I was pleasantly surprised with the recent stuff as well, seems like they upgraded everything but the price which around here is $16.39 for the adult size bottle.
