    Hey all! Just noticed this thread. Didn't read any of it....<br />
    <br />
    Just started to start drinking more bourbon. Jack is too rough for me. Been drinking Jim, Bulleit, and Knob Creek 120 with just a splash of ginger ale to take the edge off. The Bulleit rye is my favorite so far. I'll go back and read this thread....<br />
    <br />
    Cheers!

    It's not hard to find by be (metro Detroit), but it's pretty pricey, maybe ~$125

    <br />
    <br />
    That depends on size of bottle. A 750 ml retails for around $20. A 1.75 L retails in the $35 range. So if it is a big bottle, yes good deal. A 750 ml then it is overpriced. However, lots of people think it is worthy of an over retail price. In Kentucky, while the Antique and the 12 are becoming like unicorns, the Special Reserve is readily available at retail price. I haven’t had to worry about paying extra for SR. It is a good bourbon. Everyone has a different price for what they are willing to pay. If you buy it I don’t think you’ll regret it.

    Depends on your taste buds. I like sweet bourbons so wheaters are perfect for my tastes.

    That’s personal opinion. I think it is a great bourbon. I’m a fan of wheated bourbons and SR is one of the best affordable wheated out there. I think you will enjoy it if you decide to pick it up.

    Visited Bourbon Heaven last night while in Fayetteville AR....Vault. Best Bourbon Bar I have been too. <br />
    <br />
    They had everything you could want from $10 pours to $350 pours for Taylor Tornado edition. <br />
    <br />
    They probably had 200-300 different bottles. <br />
    <br />
    They guy new his stuff too. As everyone has stated Weller next to Pappy any day. He said Weller 12 could stand next to Pappy 20 and you could tell a difference. <br />
    <br />
    Headed back tonight.<br /><br />Also found a new Bourbon does anyone have any experience with this? Worth a bottle? <br />

    The new BMH in the 'squat' bottles is garbage made in oregon, riding a train set by the previous business owner who sold actual good sourced bourbon.<br />

    If it looks like this, buy it:<br />

    I would pass on the yippi Ki yay, as its not my thing. It's a barrel-finished manhattan type whiskey, it's weird. you may want to try it, first.<br />
    <br />
    And no, weller 12 does not 'beat' Pappy 20 year. Weller 12 is, however, the exact same thing as 12-year Van Winkle 'Lot B'. The only difference is Julian picks the barrels that go into Lot B, and the rest are dumped and bottled as Weller 12.<br />
    <br />
    The 15 year, 20 year, and 23 year, are completely different animals and are like nothing else on the market - though they are all nowhere near as good as the whiskey that made them famous, which is now all gone.

    Angel’s Envy is a really good bourbon for the price. Probably one of my favorite “every once in a while” bourbons. I really like Woodford Reserve too.

    Bourbonite checking in here. Read the last few pages. <br />
    <br />
    One of the things that I found funny reading is the “drought” of certain bourbons in some areas. Some people would love to get their hands on things that are plentiful & sitting in other areas due to distribution. Example... I’d love to snag a bottle of Old Fitz for my collection, but can’t find it here in the south. Where as Blanton’s & Weller (excluding 12) can be found fairly easy if you do a little searching around me. <br />
    <br />
    Anyways...looking forward to chatting with you guys. I’m in Missouri visiting family. You can be certain I’ll be visiting a few stores looking for something interesting. 😉<br />

    There is a distillery here in CT called Litchfield Distillery which cranks out several different bourbons. I haven't gotten a chance to try them and I'm not sure if it's sold anywhere except for CT, but has anyone ever tried one of their offerings? If so, are they any good?

    Neither of them are worth more than retail. Theyre mid-level bourbons, dont put them on a pedestal.<br />
    <br />
    OWA 107 should be like $22.99 and W12 $29.99

    Considering SR retails for $20 I’d say you’re a little low on your retail prices, but I agree with your premise. I HATE the secondary market. If people would refuse to pay the over inflated prices then these liquor store owners couldn’t justify the gouging they have going on. I understand supply and demand, but selling bottles at double and sometimes more than retail is obscene.

    I don’t know about them not being worth more than retail, but not that much over retail. They’re solid drinkers, but much like Elmer T Lee...it was great bourbon for the $$$, & that’s what made it great. But $60 & over for Elmer on aftermarket is nuts. There’s much better bourbon out there I’d rather drink for those prices.

    Respectfully disagree. They WERE mid level bourbons, but things have changed. Westvleteren 12 WAS a “midlevel” beer brewed by humble monks, but rose to the status of best beer in the world...why? Low supply, high demand, hype, and people finally discovering it. Same could be argued for the Weller bourbons. <br />
    <br />
    Furthermore, it would be a shame if products like bourbon or beer were forever destined to stay in whatever class they were initially introduced. I think it’s cool when products climb the foodchain, so to speak. Worth is subjective, but IMO the Weller bourbons are worth more than current state mins.
