    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today To Flip Tomorrow?

    AKA: Empty Shelf Support Group. What Bourbon Are You Not Drinking?

    Since it is a bit awkward to post/brag in the "What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today?" thread about bottles you purchased but don't ever plan on drinking, I wanted to make a thread where people could share the scores they will sip with others tomorrow. Obviously, this is not a venue to list anything, just a place to garner some high praise for your hunting skills and dedication to the hobby. I expect this thread to get quite a bit of activity - I know you are taking glamour shots of those multiple ECBP and Stagg Jr bottles, so post them here too so we can all be wowed by what an enthusiast you are. Registered lurkers are especially encouraged to post.

    Flippers, like scalpers, should be lined up and shot

    I wanted to clarify, I don't want to see the rare or occasional bottles you have had bunkered for a while and changed your mind on. Photos and bragging about large quantities of current release stuff is what is highly encouraged.

    photos and bragging about stuff YOU have that others cant get/find/afford is going to do nothing but piss the other side off. someone on here is gonna post a pic of a case of ECBP and i will have to e-moon them...

    Well, I do have a bottle of rare, old Bourbon (using the new Wild Turkey definition) so if anybody want's to see a photo of Grand Dad BIB I'll dig out a camera.

    Squire, I am sorry but you are probably not eligible to post photos in this thread. The fact you actually drink your bourbon, and buy it for said purpose, excludes you from participation

    Why e-moon when you can e-moonshroom them?



    In full disclosure, I've participated on BX/SX in an effort to rebalance the bunker towards old ryes.

    (I've been looking for an excuse to post that picture)

    That's alright LB, as Groucho famously said, "I refuse to be a member of any club that would accept me".
