    The BT business model, is to create demand & buzz for their products by making the brands hard to find. It has to be maddening for a real BT fan. My theory: BT knows , the new to bourbon dude/dudette CRAVES all BT products, due to the scarcity of their products. Which makes the entire line a " LE" in the newbie's eyes. This makes the new customer (possibly even the long time loyal customer) excited when they get the "privilege " of purchasing the BT product. This in turn, creates brand loyalty (obsession) for a lifetime. Smart, but a little dirty. I personally think the way they intentionally monkey with supply is a little below the table. Cheers

    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today (Fall 2020)

    Funny, when we own the bottle, how much better it tastes. ;-)) Enjoy your score. Cheers

    What Bourbon Are You Drinking Today (Fall 2020)

    Opened up with a local PS of 4R. It is good, a little sweet, with a huge spice bomb. Onto RRSiB PS. A Lawrenceburg night once again. Cheers
  6. THH is better appreciated by enjoying a complete bottle over time (rather than a bar pour). It has a lot going on and sometimes takes a bit of "unpacking"to discover the complexities. THH is an underrated whiskey and can be VERY rewarding. I am very much looking forward to exploring my newly acquired 2020 bottle as well...

    Worst thing in your bunker

    Indeed, that's exactly why if it's the worst thing in the bunker I'm happy. But nothing worse. It is the gatekeeper.

    What Bourbon Did You Pass On Today (Fall 2020)

    It gets more interesting by the minute. 7 year age-stated BT wheater at 94 proof for 50 bucks. On paper, seems like a decent alternative to OWA and the white label (cypb I think)...

    Worst thing in your bunker

    Sounds like since it's actually tasty, the best approach would be to just drink it quickly and then turn the page by finishing it off and forgetting about it. Rather than letting it linger in the bunker as a constant reminder. But perhaps that's why you (subconsciously) keep it around (? ) ... as a lesson learned...
  10. No clue on the mashbill, but it does say 7 years aged on the back label. Honestly I think it tastes more like Elmer T Lee than any Weller.

    Worst thing in your bunker

    This one. It's still from the time where they were being super sketchy, but the liquid is really tasty. So I love it, but hate it at the same time. I really don't keep bad stuff in my bunker. But this has some bad karma with it, so that's why this one still sits.

    Worst thing in your bunker

    As well as Bourbon / Rye, I'm a big fan of Canadian Whisky's... and regularly enjoy different versions of Canadian Club and Crown Royal as well as others when I can get them. I was excited to try a recent arrival to Aussie shores - Collingwood Blended Canadian Whisky. It's toasted Maplewood stave finished according to the label. It has an amazing nose - full of syrup-like maple notes, but that's where the good ends. To be honest, I find the taste an acidic, unbalanced atrocious mess. Nothing I do with it works - neat, on the rocks, mixed. Quite literally the first bottle in my 20 + year journey into whiskey that I'm giving serious thought to tipping down the drain.
  13. Booker's. I've said before and I'll say it again. When I'm in the mood for Booker's nothing else will do.

    It will be taterific for sure. Might break Weller store pick records for fastest sellouts.
  15. Well? You only have 1 more day. Feeling the pressure?!?
  16. Quarantine day something or other. It's been a while. Budget pours are gone. Solidly into the mid shelfers now. Old pepper sib is hitting tonight. And up way past my bedtime. Lucky I don't have an early morning I guess. At the end of this I'm going to have one heck of a "empty bottles" post.
  17. Picked up Barrell batch #25. I look forward to tasting it fairly soon.

    What Bourbon Did You Pass On Today (Fall 2020)

    Today I again passed on Still Austin bourbon (the "musician" bottle). I keep getting more and more tempted by this, even though I need another new bourbon like I need a hole in my head. This usually indicates I will cave soon, usually within 30 days if history repeats...

    Hmm interesting. I have not seen one of these. Does anyone know if this is the standard BT wheated mashbill?

    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today (Fall 2020)

    It’s my first purchased BTAC bottle so I was plenty happy to have one for myself as opposed to a bar pour. I honestly couldn’t remember my tasting experiences with the 2-3 prior THH’s other than it being a face punch and lingering. The 2020 is a fruit and citrus bomb for me after just opening with the only spice at the back end.
  21. Booker's C07-B-7. This was supposedly one of the round table batches. So much better than most regular Booker's I've had. You can actually taste some real age on this one, ... the way they are meant to be if you ask me.
  22. Cool. I've got 3 bottles with that label design. A couple of them still have the tissue paper wrapping like the BTAC. Mine are 2012 bottlings though (laser code B12). I don't have much knowledge on the history of ER.
  23. Ralfy gave it a fairly positive review - for a reasonably priced blend. I saw a local store has it $25 for 1L. I may try it.

    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today (Fall 2020)

    I remember when the Handy was the booby prize of the BTAC. I always got a bottle (or two) and loved it. Like most LEs they had good years and better years. Most are ranking this years as the best ever and as luck would have it I couldn't beg, borrow, or steal one anywhere. Congrats on your great find! I'm jealous.

    What Bottle Did You Open Today? 2020

    A link to the backstory on this from a thread long ago on SB. More info on this can be found if you search a little. Here’s a funny, true story I have to share. I’ve probably already told this here before, but what the heck. A few years ago, I was at BT (probably with Vosgar) and we had just finished a tour. I was hanging out in the gift shop when a young lady came out from the back pushing a cart loaded with ER. She started putting them on a shelf to be sold. I caught her eye and asked her if those were my bottles. She gave me a quizzical look and said “Excuse me? ” I asked her again if those were my bottles. Before she could say anything, I told her my name was on the back. She looked on the back of the bottle and asked what my name was. I told her, and even showed her my drivers license. She looked confused. There was a moment of silence, and I couldn’t keep a straight face any more. I fessed up, and even told her about the real Joe C. She took it well, and we both laughed. She finished up with the bottles and started to head back into the back room. She turned around and told me, “That was a good one. You have a nice day. “ Biba! Joe C.
