  1. Past hour
  2. Bag? BAAAGGGG???? I don't need no stinking bag with my bourbon. Unless I'm sitting curbside, of course.
  3. Meh
  4. Thats a good pair! I don't think I've ever seen ETL in my area.
  5. Sipping some Dickel 12 for the first time tonight. It's...interesting. Definitely get a vitamin note on this one, mostly on the nose. My wife said it smelled like iron supplement pills. No vitamins on the taste, little burn, nice oaky caramel flavor. It was only $26 so not a huge loss if it's not my favorite.
  6. Today
  7. I have been looking for this one since I read about it last August. Can't believe I found Weller 12 but not this one. Still searching but stores around me wouldn't know it existed if I didn't bring it up.
  8. I doubt the current version is comparable to the 1960s classics. If it were, I'm sure some reviewer somewhere would have pointed that out.
  9. I wouldn't go that far because there are a numerous scotches that offer way more value than some of these new bourbon releases.
  10. Shiner Cheer (holiday brew). Apparently this has quite the following and sells out as quickly as some bourbon LEs. Co-worker of mine forgot to load up in December and hunts this thing all over town for remnants and leftover scraps, buying a 40 here or singleton there. He called around last week and was told it'd be a miracle if he found any at this point. Low and behold at my local tom thumb I hit the jackpot while just doing my weekly grocery shopping. I bought a sixer to see what all the fuss is about, then texted him to tell him about the 300 bottles I left there in the cooler for him. Trying it now while enjoying a 70 degree day on the patio (ah, the irony). It's okish, but not something i'd need to stock up on. Peaches and pecans brewed in it.
  11. That's a ripoff IMO. Other than the two LEs, there's nothing special to command such a premium. All 10 can be had with a little time and perseverance and you can save 300 or 400 bucks, however, time is money, right? I've always thought it'd be cool for Four Roses to offer a 10 recipe collection of mini bottles. 10 single barrels could yield thousands of these packs which would probably have a higher margin than selling the cask on its own to a customer.
  12. That's really not a bad deal at all. Of course, barrel picks in these parts are as rare as snow so i'm probably a bit more forgiving.
  13. Too bad, i'm gonna hit the bottom of my only bottle (the one i offered to my father in law), i would be nice to replace it.
  14. They can try! The UK importer was told no ETL was being exported last year which means nothing this year either.
  15. Someone needs to tell these people that JR is no longer the Master Distiller at FR. (according to the "About Four Roses" profile shown in the link)
  16. Of course you have a few bunkered. I still can find it, an old stock at my only liquor store. They have some Hancock Reserve and some WT 8 yo, they used to have some ETL and some Weller12, but this time is over. I'm gonna ask them if they can order the ETL, worth a shot.
  17. Used to get them here. Got a few bunkered
  18. Thanks for the heads up Will.
  19. I sure can ;-). This one is my list, the only liquor store not far from my town sells it for €33. Cheers, Will.
  20. "Cheesy Gold Foil" a tongue in cheek Bourbon nerd name for a version of WT 12/101 taken from the garish gold label and gold tube packaging. Out of production for a long while. A coveted dusty.
  21. This was a really good Single Barrel though. I have 3 different BT SB's in the bunker. Two variations being very good & 1 variation being solid. I have never tried the 80 Proof. Hopefully you can a hold of a 90 Proof Will. Cheers, Jeff
  22. It's what I've heard too. Another one to try, it doesn't end, lol.
  23. I actually did a 50:50 vatting of this BTSB & EHTBP. The BTSB (90) is very easy with some nice oak flavor to it. The EHTBP (127.2) is strong with a nice sweet flavor to it. I did equal parts of each & said voila. It came out to 108.6 Proof & the complexity is great! They are the same mashbill, so it's basically a nice little small batch.
  24. Yahoo auctions here in Japan. There are a few WT12 auctions up at any time, usually for the single red labels, but split labels and CGF auctions are fairly common. Price increases a bit from blue to red labels, but split label doubles again (around $130 ~ $140 plus shipping) and CGF goes for approximately $300.
