That OWA Centennial is playing peek-a-boo back there!

Sadly, the original contents are long gone as I finished that last dram last week. It's now filled with Joe's 2018 Weller Blend and tasting quite superb I must say.   ☺️

This was my year of "Being in The Zone" for Lotteries and just dumb luck.  Here are some pics of my  lottery acquisitions:   Batch 1:        Batch 2:    

My 2019 lottery acquisitions - rather modest from last year's Pappy spree I hope.  I'd rather be lucky than good (anytime).  Still working on attainment of true bourbon zen, tho'.  Oooommmmm!   ?

I hit on my counties Pappy Lotto today for a 15 year for $120. Stoked. Will pick up sometime this week.

If those are lottery winnings and not "relationship" bottles, this boggles my mind.

Ok, you got me - the Pappiez were from the Loch & K(e)y Society "Hold Card" auction.  ?

Ha..busted!  But even the others...wow. Only lottery I have available to me, I stood outside for 2 hours in 19 degrees with 500 of my closest friends for nada.

Might be one more chance this weekend.

OK, how about 2018 Lottery Pt. 2 (kinda'):

The PVW20 and CEHT 4G were lottery wins.  The OWA Centennial bottle was hiding in the last pic and deserved a nice presentation of its own (filled, now partially, with Joe's 2018 Weller Blend).  And the W12 and ETL were retail finds that we don't see much around these parts lately.

 

OK, now I've reached my bourbon zen moment for this year - unless, of course, I get lucky and find a bottle of 2018 WLW to join its brothers from 2016 and 2017 in the bunker.   ☺️

Still trying to figure out how to delete and insert new pics in a post, sorry . . . . . .

Was informed by NH State Liquor that I did not get selected in their BTAC lottery this year. ☹️ My local store did have a Weller 12 for me though so I was pleased with that.

Another local store has a Pappy / GTS lottery going on. Hoping for another bottle of GTS this year. Saving last years bottle until I do.

I was told the same thing this year. Can't complain, as I got 2 bottles last year. I have had a very good "Fall Season" this year so I am more than happy. Still plenty of other great bourbon out there for us to drink.

Dont want to hijack the thread however if you win more than one bottle during NH drawing do they let you buy both? Or is it you choose 1 bottle from the 2?

 I was allowed to purchase both last year.

Got a Weller 12 from a small local liquor store auction last night; very happy with the win (considering the odds), took a Booker's 17-4 with me as well and squeezed out of the parking lot first before anybody else was leaving...2018 was a great year, but the wallet is off limits for the foreseeable future since the vault is FULL.

If you're like many of us, the vault is NEVER full. It'll get expanded, another "vault" will be added, your children will lose closet space, etc..........

...And, there it is!    :lol:    Always a way to git 'er done, if you have the will to do so. 

Hell, kick the little brats out on the street to fend for themselves whenever you hit the 'space-crunch'.    If an eleven-year-old isn't ready by then, she likely never will be, right?

Pretty much this right here.

Got notified about a Lottery win (actually two) last night - Michter's 10 and EC18.  Went to pick them up today (ouch)!  Been very blessed this year and asking for forgiveness from SWMBO is not needed - paying for her bathroom renovation (heh, heh).  And the beat goes on . . . . .

Though a little of me is jealous of you all as I struck out entirely this year (and 4 of the last 5), most of me is very happy for all of you getting the exciting stuff not on the secondary! Enjoy it.

Thought I had struck out entirely, but got a call today. All Van Winkles and BTAC bourbon was already picked, but they did have this left and I chose it over Michter’s Toasted Barrel and ECBP.

Given your success rate, I think you're entering the wrong lotteries.

 

Curious as to your thoughts on the 8 Years in the Desert as I picked up a few but have yet to try.

I've always said I'd rather be lucky than good!   ☺️

 

I really, really like the "8 Years in the Desert" more than the "new" Prisoner.  I first tried it at the Capital Grille when "they were featuring it after the "Wagyu and Wine" promotion ended.  IIRC, the winemaker David Phinney sold The Prisoner brand and agreed to an 8-year "Non-compete" agreement (thus the "8 Years in the Desert" as the sale was 8 years ago, get it?).  Now the Orin Swift Winery has David Swift Phinney as their winemaker.  I really like the dark fruit and oak of this blend of zinfandel, petite syrah, and syrah - especially with a "Pittsburgh rare" dry-aged sirloin strip steak.  But my doctor says I shouldn't do this too often - getting old(er) by the day.

 

Now back on topic - missed a HH 27, EC 23 and a 2018 WLW (among others) in the same lottery.  Oh poop - I want to win them all!  Just kidding.
