This store also had tons of Angel's Envy Rye, Woodford Four Wood, this year's Maker's Mark coaches edition, and some 2013 Four Roses Limited Edition Single Barrel.
    OFbday is one limited that sticks around for a little while. We received a fair amount and it is moving steadily. Early reviews have been very good.

    Were the prices for the limited releases at the place outside of louisville normal or inflated? I have seen some AE rye out there lately, not sure if more was released or these places dont have the clientele to sell it quickly. I would be curious to know where the 4R limited is. I would love to have a "backup" bottle.

    Was the makers mark the pitino bottle? We sold out in 15 minutes and received more phone calls in the next week than even the bourbons named Van Winkle.

    Passed in a 2011 four roses small batch limited edition. Anything special about this one that should make me go buy it tomorrow?

    I enjoyed mine quite a bit.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Thanks for the info

    Someone should begin a 'Greatest Mark-Up From MSRP' thread. I'd love to see where Stagg Jr. goes.

    Passed on EC21 and JPS 21. Both were over $130. I have a hard time breaking the $100 barrier.

    Didn't even consider the 20/21 as I find the 18 too woody for my taste. For that matter 10 years is about my cap for the HH formula Bourbons.
    We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
