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

    Well, it was a successful trip. I bought some good scotches (best was a G&M bottling of Old Pulteney 21) but the coolest thing was I got a bottle of WT Tradition for $70. I spotted it off to the side (off the shelf) and asked the guys if it was being held for someone. It didn't have a name on it so it was mine. I've passed on it at ~$120 but at $70 it's a steal. Also picked up a bottle Hancock's Pres for $40 and a store pick FRSB for $28. Good haul.

    Let me add my endorsement of this current Twin Liquors barrel pick of FRSB. Awesome stuff. I'm going to go back and buy another or three.

    I'm in Bryan/College Station and just saw a TWIN commercial on TV on this sale. They have a location here, which was news to me, that I will be visiting tomorrow.

    I think they're expanding around the state. Seems like they're competing with Spec's in the areas outside of Houston.

    I haven't. I'll have to give it a shot.

    I picked up an Ardbeg Alligator for $64.

    And another bottle of Fernet Branca.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was in college station and hit the store there. Bourbon was hit pretty hard by the time I got there. I did get some Rare Breed at around 30 and picked up some EL Tesoro tequila, germain robin brandy and several Irish at very good prices. The guy I spoke to indicated they do this a couple times a year after inventory with the next time probably in Feb.

    We went Friday night at 8.30pm. It was packed and stuff was flying off he shelf. I bought some everyday drinking bourbon at great prices and also snagged 2 bottle of 4R 2011 SB LE.

    Wow. I guess I needed to make a trip to the Twins in College Station. I would have loved a bottle of FRSBLE at any price, much less at a discount.

    I originally passed on the LE because I have a poisen girl private which is barrel proof. Went back on Saturday and noticed they were gone. Glad they found a good home. Making a trip to 4roses in about a month and will see what the bourbon festival folks left for me
