"We're still here. Scarred but here. But then again, we were invincible then."
That's an attractive looking lil whiskey family you got there!
I get by with a little help from my friends.
Good score Yeti. I picked up a lone bottle of EWSB 2000 and a couple of bottles of ETL as well.
I guess I'll join in with my Sampler trip purchases:
2x FR1B 2013
OBSF gift shop selection
OESK gift shop selection
Knob Creek Single Barrel - advertised as "Specially selected for us by Matt" (SB.com's own Clavius)
Old Scout 10 year TPS selection
...and not brought back from Kentucky but thanks to my lovely wife, 2x ECBP, purchased here while I was on a plane to Louisville.
Now, time for a nice long hiatus from buying whiskey.
4RSBLE2013 x 2 and AHH20
Finally picked up a bottle of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof today. Also decided to get some KCSB and Dickel while I was at it.
Tried to special order ETL at Total Wine and was denied by a lazy employee (again). Gonna call and ask for their 'whiskey expert' and see what he can do for me.
Wound up getting my old faithful that I hadn't gotten in over 6 months -- a Family Sized jug of EWB. Damn good stuff.
FWIW -- In AZ, prices just went way up over the last couple weeks (on the lower and mid shelves, anyway). Off the top of my head, from my visit tonight:
Fighting Cock - Before: $13.99 Now: $16.99
OWA: $18.99 ---> $21.99
BT: $19.99---> $22.99
Benchmark 1.75L: $12.99----> $18.99
Sad times, indeed.
Elijah Craig barrel proof. So glad this made it into Utah!
Haven't even managed to fully unpack my boxes from the weekend to see what I got! Amazing how many bottles it takes to prepare just four cocktails although I did have a few backups as well had they been needed.
For bourbon I got a AAA 10 year just to try, a couple of the TPS blend of Angel's Envy, a FRSBLE 2013 and the Bardstown Kroger FRSmBLE 2012 in addition to the ECBP gift shop 129.7 proof bottle to try against the current retail bottle. Also picked up a bottle of WR with the Derby label for a friend hosting a derby party this week along with some of the WR mint julep bourbon balls and assorted other bourbon ball candy for the party.
Probably something else but I can't recall at the moment. Also picked up some non bourbon stuff that I will post in the Foreign Whisky thread at some point including another Legacy. Not something that is likely to be around forever despite the rather painful price.
That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
