    You could always get on Craiglist and you should be able to get someone to wait in line for you.

    Maybe I can hire a professional disabled person. They gotta be looking for work now that Disney put the kibosh on that practice. Does TPS let you go straight to the front?

    Can you get away with a semi-professional?

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Where is TPS? I spent a few months last year in Hebron, KY and there was a store with a good liquor selection that had "party" in the name out in Florence, KY, is that the same chain/brand? I do remember a liquor store just on the south side of the river (as you enter KY from Cincinnati on 71/75) that was to the west of the freeway down at the base of a hill, is that the place? I never did stop there but I was tempted.

    My coworker just picked up a bottle of WLW for me in KY after driving 1.5 hours (I owe him big) so I guess that counts as my purchase. I'm still aiming to get a Stagg if possible though I would also happily take ER and THH, not much hope of getting a Saz 18 and I guess I can live with that.

    EDIT Nevermind, internet skills for the win. It was Party Town I shopped at in Florence, KY and that store along the freeway was something else, I just remember a large "Liquor" sign on the side. Looks like in all my time there I missed TPS all together as I never took that route south from town... doh!

    Picked up two gift shop bottles at four roses and a Vintage 23 Rye at Willett today. Was a very good day.

    Grabbed a backup BTBP for $44.75. I couldn't resist at that price.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    What are they asking for that at the gift shop?

    Stopped into my local whiskey monger afterwork, with the knowledge that some goods were waiting for me.

    My guy was luckily in, along with his boss, another great guy, and quickly a offer was made to crack a bottle open and try said goods.

    So in short order we were sitting in the back office and having a taste of some Parker's Promise.

    Fantastic way to end any week!! Talked shop a bit, and then made the way out with 3 Parkers and a EC21 in tow.

    Pricey day, but fun as hell!

    Worth repeating, make nice with your guy. It pays off.

    Need to bring him on the next visit my open FR gift shop, they are thinking about doing a single barrel, good to have a comparison to shot for.

    Just picked up Stagg Jr. for $39. It helps to have a great relationship with your local store...
