    Re: Do SBers Stock Up on Value Bourbons?

    I find I can't really resist WT101 @$16, EC12 @$20 or even handles of OldCrowReserve @$11. It's decent bourbon and I just export 'em in care packages (I gift more juice than I consume, frankly). I'll buy any bourbon at the right price and some bourbons at the wrong price.

    Re: Do SBers Stock Up on Value Bourbons?

    I keep at least a few bottles each of Weller 12, OWA and Ritt BIB on hand, but mostly because I blow through it so fast, not because I want to bunker it for later. I know Rittenhouse is in the middle of a distillery change, but I use it for Manhattans so I'm not concerned about minute flavor profile differences. Weller 12 is the only one I kinda sorta bunker in the sense that I probably keep 6 bottles on hand just in case something changes with the contents or availability, at which point I will start rationing. Until then, I consume (and gift) and replenish without much thought.

    Re: Do SBers Stock Up on Value Bourbons?

    I do bunker value pours, but they usually meet this criteria: they are going away, they are going NAS, or they are one-off. And then I buy it by the case, which gives me even more value. Case in point:

    -RittBIB DSP 354, its going away.
    -HHBIB 6yr. Its moving to NAS
    -OWA SB or FRSB (both private selections). They are one offs, and if they're in my wheelhouse, I'm buying.

    PS...and if I see OE101 going NAS, look out!

    Re: Do SBers Stock Up on Value Bourbons?

    I don't have more than 2 of any bottle/label (and those I have two of - one of the two is opened!) Sometimes it is a premium bottle (like a THH), but not always (like an OF 1849 - not a dusty or anything, but I don't see it around home so I picked two up while in KY last year). I'd say about 40% of my collection are bottles I paid under $30 for, so I don't shy away from the values. Hell - SB Blend cost about $22 to make and that is one of my favorites!

    Re: Do SBers Stock Up on Value Bourbons?

    I stash one of every bourbon I buy (if I can get 2 bottles) ... open/drink one, add the other to the collection. I do have several bottles of AAA 10YR and VOB BIB on hand ... my friends and family expect me to bring the bourbon ...
    Sto lat!!!

    Do SBers Stock Up on Value Bourbons?

    I typically stock up on VOB BIB when I order from TPS as I can't get it out here in the sticks, but that's about it as far as stocking up goes.

    Re: Do SBers Stock Up on Value Bourbons?

    I have managed to pack away quite a few away of the following W12,Ritt BIB,HH 6yr and WTR101.I think we can all agree with fear three things the most in our world,shortages,rising prices and change and I want to be well prepared for all three.
