    Attention: Binny's Customers

    Today I received an exciting email message from Binny's. Those of you who can buy from Binny's, whether in-store or out-of-state, have the opportunity to buy their various proprietary, single-barrel bourbon bottlings (and numerous non-bourbon spirits, as well) at a 10% discount. In addition, when I called I learned that they have in-stock the entire BT Antique Collection (except for the Saz), including both the early and late releases of the current Stagg.

    EC18, WT KS, WLW and spring GTS will arrive at my doorstep next week.

    Call Brett at 888-817-5898 to place your order.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    Brett is the BEST!!! He was even honored by The Malt Advocate this year. When I order from him I always make sure to get a AAA 10 yr and Old Fitz 1849. Might as well make the shipping worth it. Between Binnys and Lenell's, I can get most everything I need here in NY. Now if I could only find someone in Kentucky to get me the Kentucky only stuff for me. I would try to get that person a gift or two for the orders they put together for me. (Old Charter 12, Old HH 10yo, Four Roses SB, and whatever else)

    I was just looking at making an order so I know this off my notes in front of me:
    1 bottle $13.10 , 2 - $13.96 , 3 - $15.88, 4 - $18.27 , 6 - $22.72 Obviously it wouldn't be worth ordering just one, but 3 or more is fairly economical.

    Those are of course UPS or FedEx (think both are the same) GROUND rates to SoCal...

    This truly incredible news as I was looking at an order of about 6 bottles, and that 10% would almost cover shipping! Is there anything you have to do to get that discount? Special code? Password? Buy Brett a bottle?

    Thanks!!!

    As of August, 2004 I live in AZ not CA. You may need to make a small adjustment to the following information.

    For four bottles shipped to Prescott, AZ the shipping cost is $16. That works out to be much to my advantage for higher priced bottlings, whether on sale or not, due to absence of sales tax and lower prices compared to local.

    I believe all one must do to get the special pricing is to contact Brett directly, as opposed to using whatever online ordering setup Binny's may have.

    This link may be helpful.

    I order from Binny's about twice a year. I usually try to go for 12 bottles so I can take advantage of shipping costs. What I usually do is buy 3 or 4 bottles I cannot get around here and then fill the rest up with stuff like AAA, Weller 12, or other things like that which sell at $15 or below.

    Also, I used to ask friends if they wanted things and share the order but I like my new way better!

    A Startling Development

    My order arrived today. I met the delivery man on the front landing. As I was reaching for the carton, I could smell the unmistakable aroma of bourbon. "This cannot be good", I thought to myself.

    I rushed the carton to a safe spot, opened it and carefully began to feel around in the plastic peanuts, fully expecting to find a broken bottle. The first bottle I encountered was Eljah Craig 18 y/o, which is packaged inside a cardboard, elliptical cylinder. It felt only slightly soggy. I assumed the liquid escaped from one of the other bottles.

    The other three bottles were individually wrapped in bubble wrap, which I carefully removed from each bottle in turn. All three were intact, no liquid to be found.

    I removed the lid from the EC18's cardboard package and found a brown stain inside the package. When I removed the bottle from the cardboard, I felt liquid around the seal. Fearing broken glass or at least a crack in the vicinity of the closure I carefully broke the perforation around the seal and pulled the cork. The glass was intact, as was the cork, which fit very loosely inside the bottle -- loosely enough to allow leakage.

    If the four bottles had been packed vertically in relation to the panel that bore my address, I suspect there would have been no leakage in transit. However, in fact the bottles were placed into the box on their sides. Normally that would not be a problem; I wouldn't expect any corking to happen during a four-day trip. However, the loose cork made it a problem.

    I called Brett and left word as to what I had found. I'm not sure why I bothered. Although I haven't sampled the EC18 yet, I am confident that it will prove to be unaffected by the poor seal.

    BTW, even though there was a problem in this case, I admire the ingenuity that went into the design of the EC18 seal. When the cork is replaced, it's difficult to tell that the bottle has ever been opened.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    I, too, have had the same problem with EC-18. I think Heaven Hill either uses cheap cork or undersized cork for their EC-18 bottles. I would much prefer a screw cap.

    So what did Brett say? Are they going to replace the bottle? BTW, I've ordered from Binny's at least 5 or 6 times and have yet to have any issue whatsoever.
