    What will $114 buy you at a WA State Liquor store?

    How about two 1.75 liter bottles of Weller Antique, and a bottle of ER Single Barrel!!

    Man, I could have dropped a bundle in there - they had:

    Pappy 20
    Hirsch 16
    OGD 114
    WT Rye
    Weller Centennial
    BT
    Blanton's
    EC 18
    and a bunch of others I forget.

    Anyway, my stash was getting low, but now I'm set for a while. BTW, the ERSB is a Father's Day gift for my Dad. It has quickly become his favorite.

    Having just returned from a week in Seattle, I was shocked at the state of affairs when it comes to buying spirits. The prices were high and the selection woeful. Yes, "store" #4 did have a few more bourbons than the other "stores," but still, are you kidding me? The notion of "control" smacks of a kind of moral policing that seems anachronistic, anti-capitalist and completely out of place in the 21st century. I also visited store #9 in Wallinford and one somewhere in Ballard called #136. I love Seattle and probably will be moving there in the next few years. All I can say is thank god for Binny's & Sam's.

    Yeah, but technically, it is illegal to buy spirits from out of state WITHOUT prior permission from the Liquor Control Board and paying the taxes.

    But only if you get caught.

    I'll make a trip down to that store this weekend.
    Been a few weeks since I stopped in.
