 Most likely, Holiday gift sets.  

Exactly, seems like a truckload of holiday gift sets came in this week.  There’s a WR and EC sets with tumblers, JB with Budweiser glass pint?/shot glass set, JB bbq set but that one had JB BBQ sauce instead of bourbon. Pretty cool looking rum (can’t remeber name) in a wood shadow box thing with a porthole window and a bunch more.

Picked up a Bookers 19-03 last night.  I also have Little Book 3 (opened) and 19-01 in the bunker so not sure when I'll get to open the 19-03.  I have heard good things.

Bought a backup Little Book 3 for $100. For that price, I think this is a sleeper right now and once people start drinking them, they’ll be kicking themselves for not buying more (if they can get them at a good price)

Good price and I agree.  One of my favorite purchases this year.

Bit the bullet and got swept up in the hype.  LB 3 for $129 OTD.   Very excited for this one.  Probably an bi/annual sipper for me.

Took the leap on a MGP Widow Jane Binnys pick. 
 

if it’s not great, at least I found two straggler Saffells. I’ve missed it.

My brother-in-law has recently acquired a taste for our favorite beverage. I suggested he join this board, since he is in the Nashville area and needs some help from you guys in Nashville. He has tried to make inroads with local retailers on the S Side but to no avail. Anyway I told him I'd help get him some things that he either can't get or doesn't know to get. :) So far he knows he likes Blantons and Weller and few others he's developing a taste for. Here's a look at the care package coming his way.

Lots of boxes tonight… the Little Book 3 was priced the same as last years' which caught me off guard-- as I thought there was a significant bump in the MSRP.

I can’t predict whether or not you will like this, but this is one of my favorite whiskies on the market. I like standard JD, but I love it at Barrel Proof.  More age and proof does wonders for Daniel’s whiskey.  JD Barrel Proof is every bit the equal, and personally speaking, preferred by me to ECSB and Stagg Jr.

I've now purchased and consumed four JD SBs and half of a 5th - each a different B#.  Not ONE disappointed me.  That may be just me, but it is me.  I hope your experience matches mine.

Bought another Chattanooga SB to replace the one on the right.  Grabbed the last bottle of this 9yo MGP store pick.

I was in Chattanooga a few weeks ago and toured the distillery. They had an 11 year old MGP SiB in the gift shop for 79.99. It was a great temptation but I passed.

Interesting.. this is really good stuff.Im tempted to head down and grab one. Gonna be out of town and will miss a couple of the lotteries up here so should have a few extra $. 11 yr MGP seems like a good consolation.

Grabbed a LB3 for the bourbon club, W12s and an Old Elk for myself.20191108_130750.thumb.jpg.8bd275e76f9aa48a02bd7ee3187ba075.jpg20191108_174606.thumb.jpg.abe925bb9f172a7a4039e377f21a00c9.jpg

Verdict on Widow Jane - Weird. Has traditional MGP palate, but a strange finish. I can’t place it. Almost mineral, but there is no Dickel in it and it’s not as pronounced or vitaminy. We’ll see how a week of air does it.

I had a similar experience.  I picked up a 12 year old Widow Jane MGP store selection a while back, and it was underwhelming.  Couldn’t really place it at the time, but maybe it was the finish.  But it was just a bit “off” for my palate.

12.3 is certainly an odd age statement— first time I’ve see a Cream of Kentucky ‘round these parts.

Because as we all know, there's not any good bourbon just sitting on the shelves out there.

How old is the barrel proof JD reputed to be, Joe?

AFAIK, there is nothing from Daniel’s on the age of this.  My statement was based on my own conjecture and tasting notes that signal to me a longer aged whiskey from perhaps specific honey barrelhouse locations as compared to their standard label; therefore, it is flawed as written.
