    Re: Disappointment of the year?

    For me it's ECBP. I know lots of folks love it, but to me it's just not good. I'd gladly trade my 2 bottles for something I can drink!

    The bourbon is good, the prices and supply have been what's disappointing me.

    proliferation of honey, cherry, apple pie, magpie; but then the bourbon guys need to make $$ from the masses to afford to produce the good stuff for us.

    Dads hearing PVW is valuable and buying it just to flip it.

    Confession: my dad waited in line for me in AZ for PVW20 and he and my uncle ended up being #3 and #4 in line. He got my 20 and himself a 23. He flipped the 23 on craigslist that night.

    My dad's an asshole.

    It sure seems that way. I guess they think ALL bourbon is under-priced. So, either raise prices or cut brands that aren't worth holding on to.

    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
