Cracked a new Booker's last night and it was a delicious neck pour! Hope it continues to improve with some air.

I don't do pictures, but I was at my local military base and stopped in the PX to see if they had restocked their liquor isle. I came across a bottle of Blanton's I hadn't see before. There was only one bottle on the shelf, so I said what the heck, and I picked it up t start the holiday season off right. The stock person was hanging around and I asked if there were any more and she said there was only one per customer, per day.

The bottle looks like cut crystal, the a horse and rider on the cap, with the bottle individually numbered, dated and cataloged with Barrel No, Warehouse No and Rick No. It is 93 proof.

Haven't opened it yet, but should I go back and get more? Seemed to be rationing it pretty tightly and at $43, it wasn't an expensive bottle.

$43??? It Goes For Over $100 In Most Places. Go Back & Buy More! Excellent Bourbon, IMO.

I'll be doing just that. At the register, it lets them know if you purchased more than one per day (ID is required and scanned). It's an hour away, but it looks I'll be putting some miles on the car this ENTIRE week!! Thanks for the info !

Definitely Scott, it can be tough to come by in some areas. Even when I can find it at retail in Chicago (maybe once or twice a year), that's $59-65. And like Greg said, secondary market can be $80-120 easy.

What is the drop date on your bottle? I am looking for one 8/18/20 - 8/20/20 for a friend.

Great price at $43, while it's not my favorite bourbon (although it is delicious) I'd buy it on the spot if I saw it for less than $60

A couple of single bottle group picks at 114 proof last night. Both really tasty, but the Old Haymarket (Heaven Hill 7 year) is just outstanding.

Thinking about picking up a bottle of angels envy cask strength
So I enjoy BT and eagle rare along with four roses yellow and lightly peated scotches. I swung by a liquor store on the other side of town that I don’t get over to very often and found a angels envy cask strength. Never having a finished bourbon along with cask strength think highest proof I’ve had before is 94.Wanted to get some thoughts on it. Seemed like a pretty good price $58 from what other angels I’ve seen in the past.

Angels Envy Cask Strength? Looks like this?

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...301154146.html

If so yes buy all you can at $58 since it has an SRP of $200 and usually sells for more than that

Yup, price is mismarked or the bottle isn't the Cask Strength.

I don't like finished whiskey but if it were actually the CS, I'd buy it for trading.

Looks like that, when I walked in I asked what they had limited and rare and guy was like not much they changed our trucks to late Monday so Tuesday morning is prime time, since covid we haven’t gotten much but there’s a few things in the back I think so he went back and bought out a bottle of the cask and a bottle 4 roses single barrel and I said do you have a price on those and went up and got a price and that’s what came back on the cask and the sine barrel was $44 he said maybe he missed a 1 on the cask because generally bourbon prices are on the higher side here

Thats a steal at 43. I just paid 85 out the door because I have only seen it in a store one other time since moving to SE Michigan.
