    I just went by my local LS and talked to the owner and he said that he only gets a case or two per quarter of the Weller Special Reserve and he was all out - $26.99 per bottle. They had a case of Buffalo Trace left so I grabbed a bottle of it @ $29.99 (went up $3 a bottle since a few weeks ago). Went ahead and grabbed a couple bottles of McKenna 10 Year BIB for $39.99 each.

    good deal, you'll love (assuming you haven't had before)

    I rarely see the Weller SR marked up, just hard to find. The price of the McKenna has gone up but it honestly was underpriced that even at $40 it is a fair buy

    I know some turn their noses up at wheated bourbons, but the best of them are smooth and very rich tasting with a warm finish. I also know many poo poo Makers Mark in particular. If you come off your high horse long enough to try Makers Cask strength you might be very pleasantly surprised. It is at least as good as far pricier wheated bourbons like The limited Old Fitzgerald varieties, even better IMO.

    Luckily I have 3/4 of a bottle of Weller SR at home and it's some of the best I have had especially in the $27 price range, better than some in the $75-$125 price range

  • tfk_fanboytfk_fanboy Posts: 1,596 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    agreed. I like it better than the antique. still on the lookout for a bottle of the 12

  • tfk_fanboytfk_fanboy Posts: 1,596 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    big fan of wheaters

    larceny, weller sr

    I have not tried any of the old fitzgeralds but I will be on the lookout for them. and I will try the makers cask strength, I have seen it in stores but never thought to buy. will do based off your recommendation

    Makers Mark for me

    Should Bourbon County Kentucky be considered up there with Bethlehem and Mecca ?

    Pound for pound I think Eagle Rare is the best pour on the market. Fairly pricedz excellent taste and not too difficult to find. Enjoy!

    Always enjoyed this one. In moderation of course.

    I named my English Lab after my all time favorite- Blanton, but my everyday bourbon is Johnny Drum. Try it if you can find it around and at $36 a bottle, it’s still a decent deal.

    Hey Dawghouse - Is Basel an American made bourbon? I've had some Japanese dry bourbons that were amazing, but I can't possibly remember their names.

    I just scored 3 bottles of WL Weller SR for $24.99 a bottle

  • tfk_fanboytfk_fanboy Posts: 1,596 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    @Tdub0199 that is awesome! I would have snatched that up myself in a heartbeat

  • Tdub0199Tdub0199 Posts: 1,016 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I usually don't shop at this certain store but my wife and I were out for lunch and I told her to run by there as my usual store hasn't had it in a while, I walk in and ask if they have it and a lady comes from the back with three bottles and says how many do you want? All three!!!

  • tfk_fanboytfk_fanboy Posts: 1,596 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Picked up another bottle of McKenna BiB and a bottle of Angels Envy

    I absolutely love Angel's Envy

  • tfk_fanboytfk_fanboy Posts: 1,596 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    accidentally drank half the bottle of angel's envy

    feel better today than I deserve to
