    Re: Bourbon QPR 2008

    Weller Antique is the winner in my book. While I cant get it as cheap as some of you guys in the "better states" even at $21 a bottle its a bargin in NY.

    Also on the list
    WT101 - Never goes out of style
    EC - Good .... Sometimes
    Bullit - A buck or two more but always smooth and dependable

    If I remember my arithmetic correctly, Weller Special Reserve is a better bang for the buck when it come to cost/alcohol content over Weller Antique.

    I can't get the Weller Special Reserve around here. If its anything like the Antique you may well be right.

    Old Grand Dad 114. Barrel Proof Whiskey for a tad over $20. I've even seen it under $20, in some places. I just opened a bottle, and the flavor profile is still superb. The slightly burnt corner of the brownies in the pan. !!!!!!

    Also, Evan Williams Single Barrel. A Super Premium, at a very doable price.

    Fighting Cock. I LOVE this stuff. It's advertised as "the bad boy of bourbon", but it's actually very rich with a nice honey thread. It actually reminds me of what Wild Turkey 101 tasted like a decade or so ago, when it was still sold as an 8 year old. About $17 in Chicagoland.

    Old Fitz BIB. $14-15 in this area. A lot of really nice flavor for the money.

    OGD BIB. Around $16 ish here. Also very flavorful; this is probably the best QPR bourbon to come from the Beam stills.

    Weller Antique. $19 for 7 year 107 proof wheated bourbon; get some before they change their mind and raise the price.

    Elmer T. Lee. It's $20 for 90 proof, but compared to BT's other single barrel offerings it's underpriced.

    Weller Antique
    Knob Creek (in these parts, anyway: I know it's much higher than $23/fifth most places)
    WT Rye ($17: are you f***ing kidding me?)
    OGD BIB

    Re: Bourbon QPR 2008

    Just wondering if anyone has noticed any changes to bourbon prices in recent weeks. I seem to be finding a slight increase in prices here in Connecticut. Brands I've noticed recently include BT, EC12, and ETL.

    WT is trending down in Ohio with 101 dropping 2 bucks/750 recently.

    Has Old Grand-Dad 114 been mentioned yet.
    I now think it is the best value out there.
    $22.00 at 114 proof and tastes great.
