    This is why internet orders make so much sense for us even when shipping charges are added to the price.

    Left ETL, EHT Barrel Proof, Baterhouse and Rhetoric on the shelf. All reasonable prices, just no need for any of it.

    I'd probably be willing to pay that much for it occasionally.

    $58 plus ship for a Barterhouse made me stop and think but I let'r go.

    Left a Liter OF 86 prf with the old diamond label for like $17. Might have to go back.

    Have left many a Booker's RT batch for $35. They kinda give it away up here. Same with OWA 107 and EC12 under $20 all the time. Meh....

    Passed on an overpriced, small-barrel-aged offering from Journeyman Distillery on the West side of the Mitten State. (Three Oaks, MI?)
    Featherstone Bourbon... This crafter is way too proud of what has been reviewed by some as a bit below methanol (my words) by several folx who have tried it. I did obtain a small taste of the same crafter's 4-grain whiskey (25% each of barley, wheat, rye & corn) also small-barrel-aged, ostensibly for 18-months. That sample, while not good enough to make me pull out the wallet, was a cut above several I've tried in the same vein. 90-proof, and relatively well-crafted. Not harsh, as some of these things are. Also, not long on flavor. I'd describe it as somewhere between a weak blended scotch and a mediocre Canadian blended whiskey. Some of the rye was evident, and a bit of the barley. I don't recall the name of this stuff, though it seems to me it may have been something like 'Silver Cross'?
