Got it for much less than that at a Costco, Mr. snob.

Bought a bottle of Belle Meade Sherry Cask Finish Bourbon a couple weeks ago and finally opened it. Very smooth bourbon and is becoming a favorite.
Still haven't opened the bottle of Pot Still and E.H. Taylor Small Batch yet though that I picked up around Christmas. I'll finish some of the others first.
I'm a gadget geek and if you like to add ice and you've always wanted clear ice I bought a clear ice maker off of Amazon for $32 that works and makes really cool crystal clear 2.75" spheres. It took a little tinkering but I found that if I use room temperature bottled water, fill it as recommended and don't shake the freezer as they are freezing they come out crystal clear. Shaking causes air bubbles if the molds are agitated. The only downside is it takes about 30 hours or so in my freezer and my freezer is attached to the refrigerator so you have to be careful going in and out until they are done.
Tap water works fairly well but mine must have too many impurities in it because they came out about 80% clear. Going to try room temperature water run through a Brita filter next.
I snagged a bottle each of EH Taylor Small Batch, and Stagg Jr. today. Both very good, in my extremely inexperienced opinion!
Got together for a session with some friends tonight. Got the chance to drink some memorable bottles and knock one off my bucket list.
The most recent George T Stagg gets ripped in some circles for being lower proof than usual but it was really good. Very cohesive and the flavor punched through the heat. A solid pour.
Early 90s 12 yr old Turkey continues to shine. Classic Turkey funk but well balanced with just enough sweetness. I’ll never get tired of this.
Wilderness Trail is a newer distillery but they’re doing things the right way. Tried a 4yr single barrel rye that was not betrayed by its youth. Tasted older. Looking forward to what’s next.
Got to try a Bourbon Valley distilled in 1974 and sent to Japan. It’s a birth year bottle so it automatically has a place in my heart. Very good but not something I’d drop $800 on.
There was a lot more but I’m tired and a bit faded. Peace to all y’all.

I had both this weekend at the hotel bar where I’m staying, really liked them with Stagg being a little better for me. Also tried a Booker which I loved.

I haven't seen this one discussed here before. Wild Turkey, kY spirit, which I believe is their single barrel version of rare breed. This was bottled in Jan 2020. Something I've never seen before when I popped the cork which had a noticeable 'pop's there was a white / smoke like vapor in the neck of the bottle. This is really good.
Smart is not something you are but something you get.

I was at a birthday party for a good friend, and snatched up a bottle of "Barrel Bourbon" for him as a present. He opened and shared, glad he did!
+/- $90 a bottle.
Worth every penny!
