    Found me a bottle of GT Stagg Antique collection. Debating pulling the trigger. What’s is a good buy for this?




    Retail is $89. Secondary is $350 shipped to your door.



    IMO I wouldnt pay over $149.99 for any antique collection bottle, unless I was flipping it for something else and I got it 1/4 of secondary price.

    Still on look out for Weller 12.....found Antique 107. Worth $90?




    Neither of them are worth more than retail. Theyre mid-level bourbons, dont put them on a pedestal.



    OWA 107 should be like $22.99 and W12 $29.99




    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.



    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.




    Hype doesnt make something better, or make it magically taste better than anything else that was actually traditionally better than it and had a higher price. So you're saying just because Weller is now hyped and 'worth' $99, that it's just as good as something that's $49 or $79 but has no hype yet? Can't agree with that.



    I buy 1.75s of Weller 12 and leave it out for guests at parties, mix it with coke, etc. That's the level it's at. Is it good for sipping neat? Of course it is, but there's much better options.

    No, that’s not at all what I’m saying. Taste wise, I think Weller makes a better bourbon than many bottles 2x the price. I’ve personally seen Weller 12 win blind tastings against bottles vastly more expensive. I think it has been under valued for too long and people are finally starting to discover how solid it is.



    Hype doesn’t change how something tastes, but it drives more people to taste it, therefore more people are discovering how much they enjoy it.

    We only stuck around for one drink (and I had already ordered something else) so I missed out.

    I’ve always avoided High West or any other MGP bourbon, is it really worth it?

    Some of it is. I opened a bottle of Bourye at a party recently and everyone was taking photos of the bottle so they remembered to buy it later.

    It's ok. This is the second year it will be released, and the last. next year will bring a new Eh Taylor special spring release called something different.



    it's highly allocated and hard to find, so jump on it for $89 or less. I just got one as well.

    lol F that...I wouldnt pay over $99 for any EH Taylor, old or new. Well maybe $199-250 for a Tornado Survivor.



    I get all my bottles around me in FL for retail, except my SW dusties obviously.

    I agree with all the above.



    I tried it. Disliked it immensely. YMMV.



    Bourbons I drink on a regular basis:



    Eagle Rare

    Willet

    Walking Stick

    Elijah Craig small batch

    Jefferson’s Small batch

    Makers mark—the regular—not a huge fan of the 46

    1792

    Basil Hayden’s

    John Bowman’s

    Etc

    Anyone had Old Riply?



    Also found a bottle of Angel Envy Cask Strength Port Barrell for $299...that’s $100 cheaper than I have found in GA.



    Thoughts on either bottle.



    Found me a 1/2 gal of Weller 12 in TN so grabbed that.

    I found the Bourye while in TN but there are two different labels so is one better than the other? Or just a label change?

    That W12 is an awesome find! Angels are all too sweet for my tastes, more of a dessert drink.

    Old Ripy is a WT product, no good. It's a cash grab release, in a 375ml no less. sucks.



    AECS should be $199, and its not even worth that. It's pretty good, but nowhere near worth the $199 MSRP.
