I've been looking for 8 months for a couple bottles of BT and Wal-Mart of all places came through for me.

Saw these for $50 bought 2 blind as in I’ve never even tried their regular offering. I gotta say this is one of the best Bourbons I’ve had to date! Sooooo smooth tons of flavor and long finish! Does not feel like 123.2 proof

I keep meaning to try some Larceny but never get around to it. I need to remedy that...

I also have two bottles of the Larceny A120, although one is half empty. Really good stuff

I've heard the A120 is better than the B520, so good deal. I've still never tried any Larceny product, hopefully a bar or a party will lend the opportunity. Not gonna buy without a try.

On a like note, had a dram of Weller Full Proof that Huy sent me. Really didn't want to like it that much. But I really like it that much.

Reports are all over the place on WFP, had a friend who helped a store pick theirs and the three samples BT sent were all trash. They still picked one and that's probably how a lot of them go, but there are supposedly some gems out there. Regardless nothing would stop me from buying one if I had the chance for anything less than 2x MSRP

That stinks that they probably just picked the "least bad" of the 3 just because they wanted a store pick to be able to make a little more scratch. At their customers' expense as well.

I know the SP from Huy's place is money, so I got that goin' for me. Which is nice.

WFP is a good pour. Couple bars by me have picks of them so I'm lucky. But I wouldn't pay the secondary price for one.

Yeah, I originally thought I might use it as trade bait for some 2015 Booker's, but after trying this particular store pick, I am seriously thinking of keeping it.

Last night. Descending proofs.




Early Times Bottled in Bond is definitely my favorite sub-$30 pour.

I appreciate that Andrew, I do have all the 2016s though. In fact, cracked an "Annis' Answer" 16-02 last night. Be curious to hear which batch you have and what you think of it. I still haven't opened 16-01 Booker's Bluegrass or 16-04 Bluegill Creek.
