    LOL, thanks. I saw Wrigley's from a basic search and they seem to be doing some decent things so that's where we may end up. I hit up something on the other side of the forest around Somerset. Same deal. Bottle shops in the remote areas are sometimes pretty good. I think there was a steakhouse we might check out too.

    Bottle shops in Sweden are state run, I’m assuming that’s why it’s so low. Thanks for the help everyone!

    Nose: 130th
    Taste: 130th

    Not a surprise since 125th has always been one of my least favorite smble's. But both are great on there own.

    No, none of the other Blanton exports. Weird it’s just this one, and cheap. Have you had the gold before? If so, any notes?

    Nose: Vanilla and molasses
    Taste: figs, raisins, and vanilla
    Finish: Lingering sweetness mixed with a medium spice heat.

    First time trying this, so pardon the simple notes. $20 a pour, so I hope to revisit tomorrow.

    Why would government-run stores be the cheapest? Not trolling, just don't get the assumption.

    But it's a great price and I'm jelly.

    Also jelly. I spend like $3k on bourbon a year and never seem to break into the allotted stuff. I can't imagine what baller status is like.

    Arbi, score us a 130th locally and let's do our own side by side with my 125th...

    If the first 25 people buy 4 tickets, then they each have a 4% chance to win a bottle (with the odds increasing as balls are chosen). You know there is going to be a crazy line to purchase the raffle tickets that day

    I totally missed the only 100 balls sold part. And seemingly 23 BTAC/van winkle bottles available?

    I now regret publicizing this... not that I'll go :oops:

    Anybody here from the Lynchburg area of Tennessee? Ideally I'm looking for a long-term connection for the Tennessee Tasters series.

    I didn't like this at first; too simple for a $130 bottle. But after being open for a month or so, the flavors really gelled -- lots of sherry and port, light sweetness tempered by mint, grass, marshmallow, and white pepper.

    I kind of want to get another one, even though I'm spending way too much on whiskey lately.

    That gif is exactly how I play!

    It's a P-bass (1990 plus or deluxe, can't remember). I am not great at it. :D I have a fuzz pedal and mostly play random stoner riffs.

    to keep it bourbon related, has anyone seen any Vintage Bourbon 17 year on the shelves lately? i heard they were discontinued, i really hope not, should have bought more when they were still plentiful
