I'm drinking bourbon- AMA

Recommended Posts

Stopped into a new for me liquor store, that had a few things on sale, cash only, that were worth the detour. As always I checked the bourbon aisle and there to my surprise was a bottle of Weller Special Reserve. Now this store is in a less than well off area, so I was quite happy to see the Weller, too bad it was $49.99. I left it there, right next to the Weller 12 that was $199.99.

 Short of someone in the area winning the lottery, they will be there for ages.

that's quite a markup.  I've only found Weller twice.  Special Reserve I paid $24.99 and Weller Antique I think was about $49 or so.

 I would gladly pay those prices and then some @BigStewMan This is the first Weller I have seen in a store in the NYC area in years. My supplies are running low, I am down to one bottle of Antique in the bunker!

I've decided to become a drunk. Who makes the best inexpensive bourbon?

Hit the Jim Beam hard and then amp up your posting.   Should go over well me thinks.

my gosh man ... was she for real?  A cornucopia of unicorn bourbons there.  Pappy 10 or 12, William LaRue Weller, and George Stagg would be my three picks. Maybe we should all pitch in and buy the whole lot?

I have been going to this place for years and had no idea about the back room being so stocked.  She pulled a Weller 12 out in about 10 seconds.

 I have never had any of those.  But I would go with 3 of the Pappy's to see if the giant price increase is worth it. 12, 20, 23
