A ton of the guys where I live hype up Smoke Wagon. Never seen it other than a couple allocated sales once or twice a year

Everyone's palate is different. It has a lot of hype by me too. Was fortunate enough to score some bottles to give them a try and I enjoyed them. If any bars are open by you, you may be able to sample it there without being out too much money in case you don't like it.

I picked these up today. First Weller I've seen in weeks so there may be more bottles dropping this week or next. I hadn't tried either the BT Kosher or ECTB before purchasing. The BT Kosher just got released this year and that's what I just tried. I liked it, a little hint of mint on the end with not an overabundance of spice. I'll taste the ECTB here in a bit. This just got released recently as well and is popular in my local Facebook group so decided to give it a shot. Saw it available on the secondary market yesterday at $80 a bottle and glad I passed as the retail was $44.

Man, you’ve had some great luck lately. I’m hoping to restock my EH Taylor small batch and possibly some Smoke Wagon uncut this Friday. My local guy got a few bottles in. Congrats on the finds man!

Thank you, but this is after a few dry weeks where my local spot had nothing. I was due. So you did like the Smoke Wagon UU?

I just tried the ECTB and I liked it. Would pick up another bottle. I'm a little surprised as I asked an associate at the store who shares my taste in whiskey somewhat and I asked her how it was and she said it was nasty. Picked it up just to see what the fuss was about and I liked it. Disappointed in her answer now.

I haven’t actually picked up the bottles yet. I’m hoping to grab them at the end of the week when he gets the Taylor in. Hopefully he’ll still have some Smoke Wagon left by then.

Not whiskey related but I got my hands on Smoke Wagon's Silver Dollar American Vodka. Looking forward to trying it!

Tried the Silver Dollar American Vodka today and it's delicious. Very smooth and goes down easy. Probably my favorite vodka up there with Tito's. Ordered another couple of bottles online.

I’ve managed to keep my alcoholism focused solely on whiskey. :pint:

I have as well. I used to drink vodka years ago and with this being a Smoke Wagon product, I had to (and was not disappointed).
