I love the Bulleit BS. It just has went up in price by $14 so I kind of have stopped getting it. Every time I set out to pick it up I always grab the regular Bulleit 1.75l for $12 less.

After this recent lottery joke, I really am done buying most of my liquor in PA now. It's so hard to support these clowns.... I can't figure out their logic but basically this is what happens when you let the govt run something they have no idea how to run.

Also, Jeff 16 is a hard pass... not sure why that isn't lottery but ETL is? Bizarre.

I stopped being a good customer here over another matter.
They must have recently added a new top dog or something, who is all about making more money.
Gone are the days of MSRP for high-demand items.
Gone are the days of "if you are diligent, you CAN get them all"

The Jeff16 was an easy pass for me - I'll never open a bottle I paid more than $200 for.

Surprised to hear this, you used to love the state system. Need to send a letter to your local state congressperson and governor.

I really did, but in the first half of 2017 they retroactively changed a rule specifically to cheat me out of $400 that I was entitled to, based on their posted policies.

So in saving that one-time outlay of $400, most of which would have ended up back in their pocket, they caused me to stop spending thousands annually collecting liquor.

Did me a huge favor, to be honest.
My OCD for buying booze was just as bad as another one I kicked a few years ago - collecting posters.

Cracked open the Slaughter House American Whiskey last night. Disappointed, very grainy on the nose and pretty much offered me nothing else at all. Going to have to recommend that one as an easy pass to everyone. Nephew in NYC scored a bottle that a bar in NYC just released. $35 so worth a shot.
