Went to a couple of stores yesterday to look for the good stuff, and no FR LE, Pappy or BTAC around. Picked up two standard ETL bottles at $26 each. I have a couple of store select ETL bottles, but wanted some backup of the standard release. Passed on plenty of EC21 north of $120, PHC Promise of Hope at $99, and a new 14-year old SB George Dickel for $70 at Shoppers Vineyard. I'll probably end up picking that up at some point, and I think they have a 9-year SB coming down the pike as well.

You should try it, fox. Know it doesn't fit your profile but it is just such a tremendous off the shelf pour.
ETL is such an easy drinker. Nothing mind blowing in my opinion, just exactly what bourbon should be. I just bought my first bottle of it, and Im glad I did

Got my dad taken care of earlier in the year with respect to PVW.
I wish I could hook up all family members who ask me about VW stuff. Sadly it's just not possible these days. If only I had known what the stuff was 4 years ago when it sat on the shelf...
