    Regular old Elijah Craig 12.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Josh probably won't brag about this, so:

    Josh has put a ton of effort in the last year into starting the Appalachian Whiskey Society, and it's been a great success. He's got such an enthusiastic group of people that this barrel was completely spoken for.

    Great job, buddy. Good on you. I can't wait to drink some.

    Bottle #1 is dead, when's barrel #2?

    Standard BT, RHF (at $34.99, which is about $10 cheaper than I usually see it around here, if it can be found) and one of foureyedfox's favorites, the Dickel 9/103 store select.

    I never had it before - and didn't crack it open last night (a rye night for me, RittBIB and THH'13), but am interested to try it. I'll let you know what I think.

    This was from a liquor store that has three locations around here, so it's our biggest one in that sense. I didn't count, but I'd guess at least half a dozen and probably more still left on the shelf at the one where I was shopping yesterday. Also noticed a number at one of the other locations last weekend. They had a little copper colored chain/tag thing around the neck of the bottle, with the store's name on it.

    From what I'd read, if the retailer wanted any, they had to buy an entire barrel's worth, which inclines me to believe that only chain stores of decent size bought/have any on the shelves. Around Louisville, that's definitely true, as only the one large chain store has any, and they are nearly gone. TPS up by Cincy has a decent amount still, but other than that, it's already gone around here, but the Lexington market may have some still. I am very interested to see if any more is released from Dickel after the shelves are cleared of it for some time. At the rate that the TPS store has been selling it, I imagine they might be hesitant to buy another entire barrels worth of it in the future.

    Hope you enjoy it!

    That's very nice of you to say, Jim. Honestly, it's pretty easy to get people excited about whiskey right now, and I do have a group of really enthusiastic guys (and girls) on board. This selection couldn't have been a better experience. I was pleased to have the help of MOKD, as well as some off-the-forum friends, in making the pick. We'll definitely be looking into more selections over the summer, and possibly a rye whiskey before the end of the year.

    Was a great experience and I was honored to be a part of AWS' first pick. Also can't wait to get my grubby lil hands on mine! Again, congrats, and can't wait to see what you have lined up next!
