Where and how do you manage to buy bottles at MSRP? They're almost sold out before they ship to most stores I check into often. Most of the remaining stock is in excess of a grand or two.
Michter’s was at Total Wine - luck of the draw. The owl was shipped to me from South Carolina. It was $300, which I thought was retail, but someone on another forum posted that they got it for $129. Dunno, the Rye is $180 and the regular bourbon is $269. In any case, this one is Smokey and “young”. Not a great value for taste, but ok to have as a collection...
Think you had one too many this evening. I was asking about Pappy.
I love scotch single malt whisky. But am interested in trying some good bourbons that are not your generic Jack Daniels etc. Any recommendations?
Local bar in my town
LOL sorry. Thought you were referring to my last post. I have no source for Pappy close to retail. I can get them for a small discount over the super marked up prices, but I refuse. (Pappy 20 for $1700, Pappy 23 for $2200)
I am and have been a Bourbon/ Rye man. My current favorites are Bulliet (both Bourbon and Rye), some of the local Hudson Valley stuff (Tullithtown), if making an Old Fashioned or other cocktail, Evan Williams works in that situation.
Knob Creek is worth checking out. +1 on Bulleit, although the rye isn’t a bourbon it’s very smooth and still worth trying.
I drink way too much bourbon, all I am sayin
Anyone here take a seasonal approach to their choice of spirits? Gin in the summer, dark rum in the winter, that sort of thing?
Not really. I will say my intake of Patron increases during the spring.
My Scotch intake remains pretty constant.
Not me. Scotch year 'round.
Nope. I've found that I'm leaning into the whiskey's and discovered last winter that eggnog is 1000% better with bourbon rather than rum. The fact is though, if it's good, I'll probably drink it. My wife gifted me a Rob Vices 6 month subscription a few years ago and the first box had an outstanding bottle of tequila. I'm not a tequila lover but good lord that was an amazing spirit.
Right, yeah I was wondering what kind of connections you could possibly have to get Pappy for so damn cheap. LOL
Think it’s tough. I know a couple of really big guns that still pay markup. It’s just too lucrative. I mean a $230 bottle of Pappy 23 for $2400 is 10x. I get a couple of entires every year in a lottery. If I score one, you’re welcome to come visit and have a drink or two.
Latest acquisition. Pretty good!
Have you tried the Black Dirt Rye from Warwick? It's become my favorite rye period.
I'm a simple guy, I like scotch and my favourite is Johnnie Walker red label. I've tried different ones but that seems to be the best one for my taste buds. I'm not a connoisseur though so my opinion doesn't matter.
everything here is opinions, although you will find many consensus thoughts. I used to drink a lot of scotch until one fateful night. I started on JW black and then migrated to single malts. simple is sometimes good. you like what you like and just stick to it.
I haven't tried the Rye, I didn't care for the Bourbon though.
