There was just one bottle of ECBP B519 hiding in plain sight next to his 94 proof brothers at TW today. It was a no brainer as I had a $25 rewards coupon to cash in. Uncorked it immediately when I got home and set up a blind with a StaggJR. Will post in the drinking thread.

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.

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? ;)

Fulton IL - that's where the rye is grown for Cody Rye from Mississippi River Distillery. Had a barrel pick of it years ago...lotsa spiced tangerine notes!

Yep.

 

There is a actual working windmill in Fulton. Once upon a time, they used to grind the grain used in products from Cody Road. Not sure what happened, but that is no longer the case. :mellow:

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...

Only reason to stock up is a good price, Booker's has been my favorite regularly available bourbon for a very long time and when the price hike was anounced I bought a case of 2014-7 for $45 a pop, think I have three left. A little over a year ago I found a store with one of the named batches (Dot's batch I think?) for $55 and I bought the three bottles they had. At this point I have enough Booker's to last the rest of my life I think, but I can't say I wouldn't buy a bottle if I found a good deal....

Picked up a couple favorites...a WTKS PS and a BT PS

 

Have a regular WTKS open, so good excuse for a SBS.

Ended up going with EW White Label from Binnys.  Nothing else caught my eye.

This is one of my favorites!

I guess you can say I had a “Taylor” made kind of day.  Was excited to get the notice earlier today that something was waiting on me to pick it up. The BP was a surprise I was not expecting

Let me know how it is!  I had it in my hand yesterday but didn't pull the trigger.

The same barrel? I think they had 4 different ones to choose from. The tasting notes on this barrel #35 seemed right up my alley.

Not me, but a coworker picked up a Rock Hill Farms yesterday for $100. He was excited to find it for that price and jumped at it  :huh:

He said it was the same price he paid for one last year and they are the only two times he has ever seen it.

Bought a couple store picks at my Local. Can’t wait to try the eagle rare as the people were talking it up. $39.99 and $64.99 for the bottle and big bottle. A little more in price but it goes to our local vet center. I’m keeping the big boy but giving the other bottle to a fellow vet. Cheers!

Amaranth and BP! Gotta admit I am a bit jealous.

I'd like to hear your thoughts as well.  Just saw 3 different ones.  I have a $10 off coupon that is only good for tomorrow so may go pull the trigger then.

I'm thinking of using the coupon for the same thing tomorrow.  I didn't know they had 4 different barrels.  I stopped into the Lakeview location and they only had one of them on the shelf.

Decided to grab ECBP (Batch B519) for $65.  Working on a few other bottles before opening it up.

Was this also from Binny's?  I hope not as the last one I got from them (also B519) was $55 and it would be annoying if they raised the price!

Nope, not from Binny's.  Actually grabbed it at a liquor store in the South Loop.

I’ll be driving through the area on my way back to the MSU football game next weekend. Will these picks be gone by then? Eagle Rare picks are some of my favorites and that is very cool that it goes towards a good cause.
