Still not bad. Glad you were able to grab a bottle. It's good but not worth secondary prices IMO.

Yeah I'd like to have an ETL just to have one in the collection. I dont like it to drink. Tried it at a few bars and never been happy with it.

Also just counted how many open bottles of whiskey I have...69. Good lord I need to slow down with my buying right now.

But also, got a Nikka from the Barrel yesterday.

Also, I've funneled 95% of my poster and beer money into whiskey over the last 3 years. My collection is more out-of-control than my poster collection ever was.
You and me both. Got into the whiskey game last year and that's been my focus (unintentionally) this past year, while paper has definitely taken a back seat.
Same. 160 bottles of whisky and 60 of rum. Still like art but my focus is elsewhere.

Just opened this beaut to celebrate the birth of my daughter.

I got the whisky last year but missed out on the beer. Was able to snag a bottle of the beer today so giving both of them a shot tonight.

My latest grabs. Gotta get them before they're all gone as the Yippee-Ki-Yay and the 7,000 are discontinued and the Bourye's now a distillery only exclusive.

Nice gets. The place I picked up my Elmer had a whole bunch of Masters Collection. No price tags though and I was in a hurry so I didn’t ask. Let me know what you think.

I've got the Very Fine Rare Bourbon MC from Woodford. It's amazing. Possibly top 5 bourbon for me

I saw that happening a couple years ago. I stopped, did some math, and concluded that I had several gallons of Bourbon; enough for years to come. So I stopped buying new bottles and drink what I have, which is all good.
Booker's still gets me though every now and then with the occasional laps in willpower. Plus, I don't drink that often anymore.

3 open bottles (17 yr Wild Turkey, Booker's 2020-01 & MWND High West • act 4/scene 2 )
20+ unopened Booker's + a dozen unopened dusties (ETL, Blantons, Little Book, Noah's Mill, MWND)

I just put together my new fire pit, so there will be a celebratory drink and toast to my cousin who just passed away.
