    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    not a bourbon, but i was curious enough to pick up a Dickel 9 year, 103 proof, hand selected barrel by LB. That's my age range and proof range, plus, id never had any GD before, so i picked one up.

    I have no basis for comparison, as ive never ahd the 80 or 90 proof GD, or the Cascade Hollow. The nose reminds me a bit of OGD 114. the initial taste i havent made my mind up on yet (hard to describe, i want to say a sooty smoke), but the lingering aftertaste is quite nice and lingers around for quite a while. At $45 i might not grab another anytime soon, but definately not bad.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    Got a tip from another bourbon drinker about 2013 BTAC at $60/bottle at an online store in PA. I am not kidding. I picked up GTS, THH, and ER17. (They were out of WLW and Saz 18.) Total price including shipping and tax = $206. I haven't received the shipping notice, but I got an order confirmation and my cc has been charged.

    The catch is that it has to be delivered to a PA address. Fortunately, I got a hold of a family member in PA who agreed to have it delivered there. Now to get it from PA to NC.

    well I would assume that BT sells to all of their customers at the same price so the difference @ retail we are seeing has to be either greedy distributors or retailers.

    My bottles were underpriced. $60 each. I thought retail was $70. All three bottles plus tax plus shipping together came to $206, about $69 per bottle out the door!

    MSRP for BTAC has been $69 for the last couple of years. I don't see why it wouldn't still be this year. FYI - MSRP for PVW 15 is $80 this year. I, personally, have never seen those prices except on THH.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    'not bad' is a compliment from me regarding bourbons, as, i know i am in the minority here, most bourbons/whiskeys i quickly decide i dont like. but it is kinda fun trying new stuff every time.

    while i say it was 'not bad', if i had it to do over again, id have spent the $1 extra and gotten my favorite....bookers. but, i was curious and it looked like a small quantity release that i might not get the opportunity for later. Bookers is always on the shelf

    Travel finds are nice, but it's also nice to come home.

    Thankfully, I got to come home to a Handy, WLW and a FR 125th waiting for me to pick up.

    Also dropped off some sample items to my store guys to try.

    Be good to them, they will be good to you.
