    $100 Challenge

    You have $100 to spend on whiskey.....list your purchases with prices and see how close you can get without going over.

    I will be doing some virtual and real shopping...will post my list asap.

    One bottle of Wild Turkey Tribute. That was a quick and easy way to spend a hundred bucks.

    Re: $100 Challenge

    I'd spend it on whiskeys (note it didn't say "bourbon") that I haven't yet tried but would like to.

    Bernheim Wheat is available at a store about 40mi from here. Unfortunately I can't remember the exact price. It's somewhere between $40 and $50. I'll assume $50.

    Been wanting to try baby Saz. OLCC price is $27.95.

    This leaves $22.05. The same store with the Bernheim has Forty Creek Three Grain for $21.95. That leaves ten cents.

    Already done it. See: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Spring 2008
    Got four 1 liter bottles of Knob Creek and five 750 ml bottles of Jim Beam Black. A friend of mine, who is now managing a bar, was "clearing out" some older stock that wasn't selling. My good fortune for a change. Won't have to be buying much for a while. Joe

    Pappy 15 @ $48
    Lot B @ $40.99
    Old Fitzgerald Prime 80 $10.99

    That leaves me 2 cents if I want to give someone my opinion on them

    Eagle Rare 20.99(onsale)

    I'm a little over but I won't be paying tax on post.

    Re: $100 Challenge

    Rittenhouse BIB (x2) $26.98
    Weller Antique 107 $19.49
    VWFRR $39.99

    After tax that leaves me with $7.49, a little more than enough for a pack of smokes.
