I'm actually gargling a bit before swallowing! Kill anything lurking.

It's $99 here, Pete. One of my stores still had a Chapter Three or 2 last time I was there, let me know if you are interested....though I'm guessing with shipping it would be a wash.

Thanks for the offer but wouldn’t be worth it with shipping. I’m sure it’ll still be there when I go back

Definitely delicious if you like higher proof whiskey, Pete.

Last night some Blanton's.

Cracked a bottle of 11.5 year knob creek store pick last night, I liked it but will need a few more pours before I render my final verdict

I haven't tried any Belle Meade yet. Have no interest in any of the "finished" ones. The regular has me a little curious. The Cask Strength has me even more intrigued, but not sure at the price point.

What's the proof, Ben?

Went to my closest Binny's yesterday to see if they had anything new and exciting. Nothing caught my fancy, so I grabbed a couple 1L everyday drinkers that were on sale.



And some Teresa's Batch for my evening pour.

I had a double pour of HWDR last night, so that means it's 184 proof, right?
