    Quick question, AA 90 proof and Old Charter 8 year (age stated), are these rare yet?

    I see the OC 8 year in pretty plentiful supply in my area.

    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    I see the AA 90 everywhere (and it's not the one I look for).

    Re: Dusty hunting

    I had a dusty near-miss this weekend. Found a place that sells liquor that you would not think sells liquor by the looks of it from the outside. On the bottom shelf there were dusty bottles with tax strips. Unfortunately, no bourbon. Sloe gin, Midori, other wierd stuff, but no bourbon. I spoke to the older lady behind the counter about the old bottles with tax strips. She says, "Oh yes, I have a lot more of those at home. It used to be my husband's." (This place used to be a bar 20 or so years ago, but has been converted into a tourist item store.)

    I told her I would love to see what she has at home and maybe buy it as I collect older American whiskey. She did not show interest and so I just gave her my card and wrote "old bourbon" on it, telling her to give me a call if she is interested. I suspect she has an entire liquor store/bar of old liquor at home, but I also suspect that she has no real interest in following up with me.

    So close!

    Probably has no interests in letting a stranger see what's in her house.

    Thought of that. I suggested she could bring it in to the store...

    Surprised she wasn't receptive to that unless she really isn't interested in selling.

    We can't assume her husband had good taste in liquor, but giving her your card was the right move.
