    Excellent... Wish there was a way to pick it up without having to bring the card used for the purchase... much easier to walk out with JUST the one bottle if I have no means of buying another.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    I picked up 6 bottles of Knob Creek Single Barrel for 19.99 each. With many clamoring for Stagg Jr. and EC Barrel Proof I think the KCSB gets overlooked. At 19.99 its a slam dunk, but even at around $40 I think its a solid value given the current market for higher proof bourbons. The bottles/drinks I've had have been pretty consistent too.

    The PHC was, in fact, the Promise of Hope.

    I saw a sale on InternetWines for their RWS Private Selection #31, an OBSF @122.8pf, so I 'grabbed' two. With shipping to CA, it totaled $51/bottle. Anyone try this yet or have further details?

    What else could you want?
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    id have cleared the shelf of all the KCSB (again) at that price. i still have 10 from the last $18 sale, but id clear the shelf again at that price. cheapest ive seen it around here since my $18 find has been a $32 sale i saw last month. $32 is a good price, but with 10 in storage, im not gonna load up at $32.

    I agree....KCSB is the best thing you can get for under $40. let everyone else climb over and fight each other and wait in lines for stagg, ecbp, etc.

    I had a similar experience as one of our local HyVee's did a barrel pick and it didn't sell well as it was priced a bit high.I walked into the store one day and they had them all marked down to $19.99,so I did the right thing and made a few phone calls and bought the remaining bottles.I do agree that it is overlooked and with the right selection it can be a rather rewarding whiskey,especially at under $20 in this case.

    Well, got a call from my local store and went in to pick up these two bottles. The funny part is, if you look at the proof both are from 2012, we have not received this years allocation up here yet. Sadly our insane taxes caught up with me so these guys cost a whopping $120 each after everything was calculated... ouch! At that rate I'm thinking only a single 2013 Stagg makes sense....
