Rant of the day…

Stopped into a hole in the wall liquor store in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin.

Chatted with the clerk for a while and asked if they happen to have any Blantons or Buffalo trace available, he replied “yeah, the boss has rows and rows of both of them upstairs in the locked room, I don’t know why she never puts them out”.

Seriously this is the only liquor store for miles, in a population of about 13, and this place has cases of Blantons and Buffalo trace hidden away.

the owner called the clerk while I was talking to him, and he actually asked if he could sell me a bottle. The owner claimed she had the only key. My guess is you are right, she is telling that shit online.

There are always those places that are more like bourbon museums that stores. Charge $160 for a bottle of Blanton's and $1000 for Old Rip Van Winkle. Sad thing is, someone will always stumble along and be willing to pay that.

I can proudly say I've never spent over $100 for a bottle of bourbon. Could have bought a Russell's 13 year for $170 and almost did but I can get decent enough bottles and not break the bank. Let someone else enjoy it.

Our neighborhood bar has a better selection of Buffalo Trace created bourbons than most of the high-end joints in town…

I finished two bottles of Weller 12 Yr. The bitter aftertaste was excessive. The new higher price is also excessive.

I tried Stagg for the first time, I think I prefer that over the Blantons.

I don’t get the bitter aftertaste on my Weller 12 year. My local place still sells at retail. I think it was $69. That being said I think I prefer the Stagg over the Weller 12 year. Different pours considering one is 90 proof and the other is 127. The Weller Antique 107 is still probably
My favorite.

Just got a bottle of Antique 107. I went secondary but not a huge price. Local guy. Paid right about what I’ve paid retail for my Full Proof.

Michters American is a favorite of mine and I really enjoy the rye too (it’s a low rye rye and makes a great old fashioned).
