    I saw some of DSP-1 for $22 the other day, which is actually $3 cheaper than the normal price for 354 around here. So thankfully it's not an across the board price rise.

    nothing is worth more than $50, i dont care what it is, or what the masses say about it. $50 a 750 is $250 a gallon.

    It costs a lot of money to make a lot of really good, old whiskey.

    I believe it was BourbonJoe who once said "you can buy good inexpensive bourbons, but you can't buy great inexpensive bourbons". Don't doubt the man

    I love that perspective! We can ask the next master distiller we meet "so how much are you asking for a gallon of your whiskey sir?" :rofl:

    Value is in the eye of the beholder. I'd never pay what I hear BX charges for things I like (GTS, WLW), but if I could pick both of those up retail whenever I wanted them for $70 - they'd replace several other bottles in the rotation

    I would have to say I'll never pay more than $50 for a bottle of whisky . . . again.
