    Re: OT Blanton prices

    Hi Koji,

    and first of all welcome.

    Just as a matter of interest, there are four different Blantons available over here (Germany), at least as far as I know.

    Blanton's 'Special Reserve' (80 proof) - $26
    Blanton's 'Single Barrel' (93 proof) - $33
    Blanton's 'Gold Edition' (103 proof) - $62 (!)
    Blanton's 'Silver Edition' (98 proof) - $66 (!!)

    To be honest I never tried Blanton's but Linn (Howdy man ! How are you ?) told me that it has the same recipe as one of my favorites, Elmer T.Lee which is, according to Linn 'just a tad bit sweeter with a slightly more 'lazy' finish'. And since 'lazy finish' is my second name I was never tempted to try one of these expensive 'precious metal' editions.
    Btw, a bottle of Elmer T.Lee Single Barrel 90 proof costs about $30 over here.

    Best,
    Ekki

    Re: OT Blanton prices

    I drew my pay last week and set about to squander a bit in the form of a bottle of Wild Turkey 12YO . I need to back it up with another before I try it ,(what discipline!) They only had 2 left I didn't ask if more was on the way. I'm at a loss however, about what to do this week, Let's see...The Eagle Rare and Sazerac 17 and 18 are back , get the Old Charter classic 90 as per Linn and Cowdery, load up on Dickle before it all disappears. I still need a 10year Bookers , Oh yes the McKenna in the little jug they are still plentiful here , Pappy 20 the new issue ...did I say I am getting thristy? So many choices !

    Hi Ekki!

    I'm doin' fine. Thanks for asking. I've been teaching myself to play piano, and that's taking up a lot of my free time.

    The prices you're paying for Elmer T. Lee and the regular 93 proof Blanton's are just about the same as I pay, so I'd say you're getting a good deal.

    There are some collectors on this forum that would just love to have those 'precious metals' versions of Blanton's.

    Re: 12 Y.O. Turkey

    Bobby I've been told by the folks at Wild Turkey that all of the twelve year old stuff would all be going to Japan, but I wonder if it will continue to be available in Kentucky. Have you noticed any stores where it has simply disappeared never to be restocked?

    Re: 12 Y.O. Turkey

    Linn, I will be going to Liquor Outlet tomorrow I'm going to ask about it . When they first stocked the 12YO they were loaded for bear there was a case or 2 on hand , and like I said I pulled 1 bottle last week and there were 2 left I will see if they have replenished or not. Actually the 12 YO didn't even make it to most stores that I frequent .It would always have been available for special order. Some of these guys may have been put off by the price. It goes for $48.00 here. This may not be a fair comparison but I had a hard time walking by 3 bottles of Elijah Craig 12 to pick up the 1 bottle of turkey! I don't mean any thing bad by that at all , Wild Turkey does a fine job in my book.

    Re: 12 Y.O. Turkey

    Bobby, Wild Turkey and Elijah Craig are two of my favorites, too. Rare Breed is my most favorite and EC 12-yr is certainly in my top ten. I love regular WT 101, as well.

    Have a great time with your WT 12-yr!

    Re: Wild Turkey 17 YO?

    I misstated the price for Wild Turkey 101. It is $19, not $24. I don't know what I was thinking about, unless it was the 1.0 L price, but that is $26. So, it must have just been a brain fart.
