    New Garrison Bros bourbon $160???

    Look, I am as Texan as they come. In a state where Yankees from the Rust Belt have diluted the accent I still say Howdy as "Heidi" and say "nine" as "nighuun"..hell I won a prize in the third grade for drawing the Alamo. But I'll be &^%$43 if I will pay $160 for a 375ml bottle of 3 to 4 year old whiskey..even if it is made in Texas. Garrison has been spending too much ^%$ time with the East and West Coast wannabes in Austin (AKA t-sips to us Aggies). That's insane.

    Before this is sent to PR@C the t-sips out there know I am just having a bit of fun..but seriously $160??

    Re: New Garrison Bros bourbon $160???

    I saw the email and was blown away too. I really want to like Dan Garrison and his operation and I've been hopeful that some of the top notch distillate he held back and aged properly would blossom into something great but those prices are insane.

    Maybe he can get Parker to plug it.

    I love what Dan has done, but this is really pushing the price ceiling. Only 600 bottles; there are more foolish Texans than that and I'm sure he will sell out. More power to him if he can get that price. I will not be among them.

    I support the effort to do a cask strength bottling. That price is just Too Damn High.

    Don't you suppose the price of all their bourbon is a reflection of the lack of economies of scale? Divide huge start-up costs by a small number of bottles and you get a huge price per bottle. Not to mention that everything is bigger in TX. Have only tasted Garrison's in candies but notes from those who have would suggest that it is "all hat and no cattle." So far. Maybe better with some age on it.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    I trust their opinions when people who know say the GB people are good folks, and that they "are doing it right". If the market will bear these high prices, then more power to them. However, the GB whiskey I have tasted was absolute dreck...

    For the second time this week I'm reminded of one of my all-time favorite NYC characters by a post on SB.com. Apparently it's not just a NYC problem: The Rent Is Too Damn High!

    Oh, I don't care, if they can get their price more power to them. I'm just struck by the incongruity of a youngish not ready for prime time whisky in a half bottle being priced twice as much as a full bottle of something it should aspire to be like a Parker Heritage Collection.
