    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Summer 2013

    I am pretty much in the same mindset with the 12 yr and the WT. Interested enough to try it, not to fork our cash, especially when there are a fair few bottles out there I still want to buy that I know I will like.

    I haven't seen a shortage, but then again I really haven't been looking. Will have to check a few places out on the weekend. I was offered a EC20 for $260 yesterday though, which was a bit steep for my wallet. Went to buy a bottle of ORVW 10/107 but the guy had already sold it offered me the EC20 instead. Told him thanks, but no thanks. He reckons he can get a few more bottle of ORVW in next week. So we shall see if he not blowing smoke up my ass.

    Anyone having trouble getting EC12? My local has been out for almost a month, almost worried.
    Couple of stores near me carry it though one is out. Suggest you order up on Dans. My cheap go to (EW Black) just left overnight, so you never know.

    Won't go near EC20. EC18 was good value for Australia at $130, not sure how the extra two years = double the price. Can't recall what I paid for ORVW (maybe $130 - $140?) but it doesn't excite me that much.

    Good idea, will stock up on a few, after a rocky couple of years it has become one of my go too bourbons, age vs proof vs price is just right for me, would hate to see it go.
    My last bottle of ORVW was $120, I can leave it at that price, if it was half that I would probably buy it, mixes VERY well in cocktails, straight up its not my thing.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Summer 2013

    Ideally I wouldn't pay more than that either. But its a gift for the girlfriends dad who is as subtle as a sledgehammer when dropping hints for his birthday. Tried to sway him off it too something different and something a little cheaper, but that Pappy hype spreads far and wide. I have only about 3 bottles in my head that I would pay more than about $150 for and use for my own personal consumption and that is not one of them.

    I also didnt realize till I was looking on here today, the store I was in had a pretty wide range of High West bottles, which I only glimpsed quickly. Even if the guy dont come through with the ORVW, I think I shall go look at that more closely.

    The only shop in Adelaide that has ORVW is charging $195, which (I don't think I need to say it) is outrageous! The stock has been there for at least 8mnths or so, so might come down, but this mob sticks to its guns. Id love to get a bottle at a cheaper rate if anyone can help. Its one of those bourbons that is a must try. BTW still drinking Bulliet Rye and GD12, great value and exceptional pours! All the best

    Hi, new to the group. I am Brendan and I live in Sydney. Just was letting the group know that according to my local store BWS are going to stop selling Blanton's and had the yellow label original (46.5%) on special at $46.50 quiet a bargain. By the way I don't work for BWS.

    Currently open on my bar is:
    Bulleit 10 year old (like it a lot)
    Bulleit 40%
    Blanton's Green label (always liked ever Blanton's bottle I have had)
    Blanton's Yellow label
    Buffalo Trace 40% ( still like it but liked the 45% better)
    Makers 46 (second bottle, the first I didn't like so much but the second is a lot better)
    Evan Williams Single Barrel 2002 (Glad I got it for $48 dollars at First Choice as the Coles owned liquor company is no longer importing it, the new importer must have increased the price because I saw it at an independent store for $92)

    Recently finished Bulleit Rye (liked it a lot)

    I usually one or two pours over a small amount of ice 3-4 times a week.
