Awesome! Looking fwd to trying it.

Good week here. :drool:

Ended up falling into a Booker 30th, picked up a PHC 6 & 9, 4 SAOS 13 yr SiB bourbons, and split a PHC 8 & Four Roses 130th w/a few friends.

I want to find a 30th anniversary and open it with the 25th anniversary hidden away.

Also thinking about selling my collection and not chasing bourbon anymore. Such a love hate with the “Hobby”

Well I am not much of a whiskey man but my friend had a prom night like month ago and me and my other friend wanted to start ourselves before the ball with Jack Daniels and ginger River Tonic. I didnt want to do that at start because I didnt want to mix whiskey with something but it was damn good! We had a great time before and during the prom night!

I snagged some Michter’s Rye and Old Fitz. There were a bunch of others as well, missed out on the Michters Toasted, though.

Just the normal Michter's Rye? Or 10 year? If it's just the normal release, I can get that for you whenever.

Normal stuff, and yeah I don't think it's super tough to grab here in PA but it's been a while since I had it. The M10 was up but I wasn't interested at $130+tax/shipping. I don't think it's that good.

Stopped in a local just to browse and was surprised they were kind of well stocked. Nothing too rare but a decent selection. Had the New Riff BIB, clerk said its pretty good and the single barrel is outstanding but they can't keep it in stock. Was going to grab a bottle of Proper Twelve since they had 4+ cases of it out until 2 separate people told me it is a complete waste of money. Even the clerk said she hadn't heard a single person say they like it. Explains the 4 cases I suppose.

Yeah I've really stopped chasing bourbon. Its too frustrating. I will buy my 80's and 90's WT, along with the random BTAC / old fitz bottling on FB and just pay the premium. The only stuff I really "hunt" for these days is scotch or rum and thats mostly through overseas online stores (although we are heading to Paris in a couple weeks so I plan on doing some major hunting there).

I recently found how wonderful the world of bourbon is and how expensive like posters it can be.

I bought a bottle of Tin Cup recently and really enjoyed it. Smooth. Yesterday picked up some Bulleit Bourbon. I know it's incredibly rare to find but anybody have any luck tracking down Blanton's?
