Got back from Japan a few nights ago. Here's the final tally of booty.

As they say.  Good things come to those who stand in line and get their number drawn.  Well that's not really what they say but . . . anyway, I got my number called today and brought home a bottle of

Left my event early to seek out a bottle of Blanton’s for gifting, started a conversation and ended up leaving without it. $254.00 for the trio— still somewhat in shock.

This was fun and a bargain at $20. Need to revisit but didn’t care for Bernheim. Rittenhouse was my favorite.

Yeah..these are still $40+ here. A good idea but over priced. I'd have jumped on $20.

I think I’m more excited about the free EC socks to be honest

No joke I want the jokes more than the bourbon.

Got a good deal on Bookers today.  Fairly large cache of 2015-03, “center cut”.

 

 

Awesome!  Amazing to find that.  Hope it's not priced at secondary.  That's reported to be one of the best of the named batches.  Sadly, I've never had the opportunity to try it.  2015-01 "Big Man, Small Batch" was  the best of the named batches I've had.

66 each including tax.  I found only one center cut last year and it was closer to$80.  I got real lucky today .

You're lucky.  Center Cut is a sought after batch.  So jelly. But, I've had my moments like the time I found two dusty bottles of 2015-01.

Wasn’t expecting much as everything around here is marked up beyond reason but scored a bottle of Weller Antique 107. 

 

Been a couple years since it’s popped up here and I enjoyed it a great deal.

Been nursing my bottle of Henry McKenna 10 since it became the new Blanton's, so it was nice to run into one at $35.00.

I’ve got quite a few bottles of Henry McKenna 10, and I still owe you from the last time we met, so the next time I’m in your area, I’ll try to repay the favor!

I've heard good things about the Booker's 2019-03 "Country Ham" but it doesn't seem to have made it to the West Coast yet.  Reviews I've seen/read say it's the best so far of the 2019 batches.

This one is getting bunkered. Almost done with the first bottle. I’ll be tucking several of these away.

Went for a drive yesterday. South first, then west. Looked at a lot of stuff, but didn’t find anything for the house or yard. Of course we stopped at a few liquor stores along the way. Passed on everything till we got to Fulton Illinois. Stopped in to say hi to Brad at Eagle River Liquors, and bought........................yet another Weller SR. What can I say? ;)

 

 

Biba! Joe

I find Booker's to be rather consistent batch to batch-- like comparing a Honda Accord built on Tuesday to one built on Thursday.

Thanks Jeff, but given how long it took me to get through the last bottle, I'm good for at least another three years. Bourbon has a lot of competition around here.

Cashed in the Whiskey Quarter jar.  Changed it into Whishey, of course!

Now where did I put my BMW jar???

There’s alchemy for you.  Turning silver into whiskey!

Same. Beam’s batch naming is cute and all but I find to be just marketing.

Totally agree.  I've never had a Booker's I didn't like.  But the flavor profile can and does vary from batch to batch (just like with Sjr. and ECBP) and it's interesting to explore those differences.  That's what makes me want to try them all.  But there's no reason to stock up on any single batch since there's always another good one down the road...
