Picked up a GTS. That’s my first BTAC of the year, and the way things are these days it might be my only, although I still have a few other things that may come through. $119 OTD

Well apparently on Flaviar I'm able to purchase EH Taylor Small Batch ($49.99) and HW MWD ($165).  EH Taylor is a pretty good deal.  And since I can't snag either in NC and they actually ship to NC I went ahead and hit the purchase button.  Got free shipping by doing a 3 month trial of their membership so I've also got 3 1.5oz tasters coming in a Welcome Box (will prob just cancel so no big deal but he, free shipping).

Ouch, but at least you know the juice is excellent.

 

I made a questionable purchase myself today, really hope this is worth the price tag.

I figure i prob saved a few bucks on shipping as well as the EH Taylor.  Also, I was already going to have to spend $99.99 (NC Pricing) on it anyways...so at worst I'm losing $65 because I for sure would have picked it up for $99.  Honestly I'm probably never going to see this stuff here on the shelf and would have a hard time finding it on a random trip...so figured what the heck.

I paid ~$90 which is the normal going price unless you're shopping at a warehouse chain. But what I really wanted was a WT RR pick or a Baker's, and they had neither. I took a gamble on this one, and paying x2 of what I intended is hard to swallow.

I was a slow adopter to the Joseph Magnus-- but after almost 2 years re-opened the bottle to find it very "Italian"-- in regard to subtle amari-like notes which are uncommon in bourbon. The ABV is spot on as well. I enjoyed a 50mL travel bottle on Lafayette Street/NYC earlier today.

Having my first pour now. I'm not an expert on amari in particular, but I think I understand what you mean. It's very dry and bitter, with loads of clove almost numbing the tongue, all qualities that remind me of the odd digestif I've had here and there. Not paying for my $90 for the time being, but certainly interesting. Also it tastes nothing like MGP.

I get distinct well-matured George Dickel notes although the label states otherwise.

They do have Dickel barrels there so it's possible.

At magnus . They do dickel single barrel picks, but I’ve never seen them use in anything but the single barrel picks.

no, only that Magnus does have dickel barrels and definitely uses them for their sib private selections.  Not sure if they use them for their other blends.  
 

most private barrels I’ve seen are mgp.  My local group is doing a selection next week and all samples are 13yr mgp.

Nothing.  I worked from home today and went to get my car wash during lunch.  While I was waiting I considered going to the liquor store as well, but ya know what?  I just didn't want to.  I just don't enjoy it anymore; it's become an errand and a hassle.  Bourbon zen.

This was an impulse buy, but I really liked the Remus Repeal Reserve Series II, so said “Why not?”

Not a purchase, but I was gifted a Kentucky Owl Batch 8 and a KO Confiscated today. A nice surprise and I look forward to trying them as these are ones I wasn't willing to pay for myself.
