    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Winter 2013

    Pretty sure I paid $90 at Nicks. Thought Dans would have it around mid $60s.

    I thought it was about a $100 plus about $15 for postage on Nicks. But if its $90 then I agree its not that great.

    The only shop in Sydney I know you could buy it from is charging $110.

    Just checked, it's $100 there. Still think DM is too high.

    I'll buy a bottle from Dans, but I can guarantee that at that price the bottles going to last 12 months or more as it won't be a regular pour. The alternative is to bring my own in from the US, but at last count (when the dollar was equal) it didn't really save me more than $5 or so.

    Also, speaking of drinking in Australia, just looked on the Dan Murphy's website and they have Elmer T. Lee as coming soon. Pretty excited for that and considering what the online retailers sell it for here, its a pretty decent price.
    Nice score on the Lot B Vietish, and nice spotting of the Elmer T i'll def be bunkering a few of those.

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    Just tried my first glass of Blantons Special Reserve, it wont be my last! I know its only 80 proof, but it has those subtle flavours that I like from others such as ETL, EWSB. I don't know why it took so long, but by the looks of it, I'll need another bottle by the end of the week!

    Having a large pour of Elmer T. Lee in honour of the passing of the great man.

    It might get a little larger if QLD score again....

    It's a good game so far.
