    Re: Bourbon clubs?

    How many different bourbons do you have access to at your local stores?
    I'd say at least 24, so two years worth, some better than others, of course.

    This is a great idea. Count me in.


    Any liquor store I have ever been in will order ANY bourbon you want...

    Note to The Boss:

    The preceding comment, even if not completely true in all locales, points to the benefit of publishing the line-up several months into the future. That practice would also aid those, such as senior citizens (aka, "old farts") on fixed incomes, who budget their purchases even in the presence of easy availablity.

    Yours truly,
    Dave "OF" Morefield

    Re: Bourbon clubs?

    I wonder if there are enough different bourbons to make it interesting and how many we could do before we start repeating or trying the most commmon bourbons. How many different bourbons do you have access to at your local stores?
    I'm sure there are more than enough bourbons to keep us going for some time

    It's conceivable that in some months, you won't be able to participate becuase you can't get a particular brand or bottling. (I'll definately be in the same boat - our range of bourbons in Australia isn't that large and the cost of importing on a regular basis is very high )

    There could even be different tastings if people are interested -
    A bourbon of the month which would be something 'most' of us can purchase and is current (eg '95 Evan Williams Single Barrel)
    and..
    A hard to find or older vintage bourbon of the month (eg '91 Evan Williams Single Barrel)

    Count me in if it's something I can get in my area. Maybe we should pick a widely available bottling for the first month, maybe EWSB or something else in that same $15 - $20 price range?

    It wouldn't work at all, for me. I'm in a strict control state with very limited product selection.

    Again, in my state, they sometimes won't even order things for you that they have on their official list. But, I have become resigned that even the official listing may not mean that they actually have any.
