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

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.
Picked up a bottle of Dickel 12.
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.
