    Knew of it for a while now.

    No interest at all.

    Re: Lets talk about overpriced for a bit

    My favorite comment on the article - "Does it actually taste 3,975 dollars better than my Canadian Club? And mines 1.75 liters." I wanted to comment and say my VOB BIB I am drinking right now ($15) is much better tasting than CC of any size.

    I'm making a run on beanie babies. They are due for a comeback.

    I hear the desirable ones will be fashioned out of empty Van Wonka velvet bags and filled with the styrofoam of containers that were used to ship auctioned bottles.

    I also hear there will be a wonderland fairytale playset called Stitzel-Weller. Though it comes with no barrels, you can purchase the limited edition add ons directly from Buffalo Trace.

    Re: Lets talk about overpriced for a bit

    I would rather drink my make or 10 dollar gold HH. Funny how they operate. I doubt the paper made this up, they are expanding their Distilling capacity, currently they make most of their whiskey at another distillery. That still they have, might make a quart a day. If they even run it. My must so many of these ndp's try so hard to dupe their customers. I cease to be amazed.

    Oh com'on Tom, you can afford to be generous, say a gallon a day.

    They have to try hard because it's so obvious their full of it But I'm on you're side, I don't understand why they do it.

    Re: Lets talk about overpriced for a bit

    I restate my assertion that VERY few bourbons or whiskies are worth over $50, and then, only due to the fact that a distillery had to pay taxes on 50+ gallons for 2+ decades, only to get 15 or so gallons back out of it. Since I don't like much beyond 10 year aged whiskey, I stick to the $50 rule. However, there are a lot of good $20 whiskies out there, that I'd argue are just as good as someone else's 'I paid for the label' bourbon.

    fixed it for you.
    Where I am $50 doesn't buy much (OGD 80proof sells for $35).
