    Austin/Texas SBers -- Twin Liquors doing their "dollar sale" again

    http://www.twinliquors.com/event/75t...ry-dollar-sale

    If you hadn't seen it yet, I wanted to give everyone a heads up that Twins is doing their dollar sale again this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I'm not sure exactly what "dollar sale" actually means (they say they slash the price to the lowest price possible and then add a dollar) but the last time I was there for one, there were varying discounts on all items with stuff that was normally ~$100 cut to $70 or $80 (depending on the item).

    I know I'm going to pick up a bottle of Old Pulteney 21, but I'm debating picking up the last bottle of WT Tradition that I think they have. (I decided to pass at retail based on reviews but if its less than $80 I'll probably spring for it.) I might also get a bottle of Hancock's Pres. I've never had it through all these years and have heard its mildly overpriced so I might give it a go at a discount.

    Any thoughts on these? Any thoughts on bottles you'd spring for if sold at $10 off?

    Hancock at a discount gets my yes vote.

    There were some good deals last time. FR1B for ~$26.

    The wording changed this time. It used to say it would be their cost plus a buck. Now it says the rock bottom price plus a buck.

    Whatever, I'll definitely be checking it out. It was definitely worth my while last time.

    Have you had their private barrel? I thought it was really really good. I've probably drank 5-6 bottles of it.

    How recently, Winston? I've had some private barrels from them before but don't remember the difference between them and "regular" FRSB. If you're giving good reviews, ill pick up a bottle if its back at $26.

    I want to say last time I picked one up was in March or April. Kind of wish I had gotten more.

    Ooh nice, thanks for sharing. I live in CA but I'll be in Austin this weekend.

    In the past, the sale has been Thurs-Sat? The website has conflicting info; I clicked on the link posted, and at the bottom of the page it says Wed-Fri. On the right side of the same page, it says Thurs-Sat. I won't be there until Saturday morning.

    I think in the past it was wed-fri but this is supposed to go through Sat.
