If you win the drawing you can get a Pappy Van Winkle for $300.00

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    How old? Our neighbors are mormon and have a ton of reletives there. Maybe I can get them to get me a bottle - hahaha.

    21 years. That's the reason it costs so **** much. By the time 21 years goes by, most of the mixture has evaporated.

    They are selling 5 of the 23 year old for $299.

    Utah liquor laws + advantage = x/0. In other words, it does not compute.

    I've got my Class VI hook up so I'm good. I paid $9.99 for a six of Fat Tire Abbey Ale last weekend. I shudder to think how much that would cost at the State Store.

    The increased allowance for grocery store beer to 5.0% ABV is pretty good. Not as good as the 6% they were going to pass, but a welcomed improvement. Lots of European pilsners and other imports are now available at competitive pricing in the grocery stores.

    There was a place here that sold Pappy 23 and several other things at retail which is 399. I wasn't even close. Some dude camped out for it over 24 hours. There was only 1 bottle of it. But several of the 20s. Clearly I wasn't dedicated (translation, crazy) enough to want it.

    Got a bottle of Old Fitzgerald 9 year. Its pretty good

    That's why I don't buy Pappy's. I like the strong drink too much.

    Comic insinuated that I was an alcoholic at the Yellowstone Rondi. I informed him that as long as I felt slightly bad about consuming 10-high at 8:00 in the morning, I was ok.

    You should feel real bad about consuming 10-high in general. OMG that is crap.

    One year on my Smith River Trip we were camping on my friends property there and we ran out of alcohol. He then remembered a stash of Ten High that was in the camper. Needless to say nobody drank it after the initial taste. We ended up passing the bottle around and spitting it at the fire to see who could make the highest flames.

    Eff you and your craft beer and your fatbike.

    Ten-high is not rad, but I like it. :)

  • sherbsherb Senior Member Posts: 4,194 Senior Member

    Before I started my latest "diet" (no drinking until Christmas) I found a bottle of Blanton's. OMG, nectar of the Gods.

    In my family you are only an alcoholic if you are mean drunk. I was only concerned that you might burn the bacon.

    I am not going with you on the PBR thing. But that whiskey is not bad for the price. We just looked bad chugging it out of a half gallon bottle on the side of the road in front of Lt Knifehands.

    Ha!!!

    I do like my craft beer.

    Haven't drank whiskey in a while but when I do I like Bulliet.

    Anyone who drinks 10 High would think that. I think Blanton's is OK.
    For cheap booze, I like Weller's green label. My son's commander got him a bottle Weller's Black label after the "incident". Now that is nector of the Gods. Problem is that is impossible to get without some connections.

    My favorite bottle I have is George T Stagg....high octane but has a great taste

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 24,373 Senior Member

    So I put my name in the Lottery for the Pappy Van Winkle. I have had it once and I really enjoyed it. Let's face it with me, you can bet there will still be some when we hit the snake. So let's hope.

    My favorite cheap drink is in fact a huuuuge bargain here in the U.S., Clan McGregor scotch. In the UK it is a middle-shelf whiskey, the 12 yr old is even better. The reason it costs so little here is that it is shipped in giant stainless steel tankers and bottled here, saving an enormous amount in transport and taxes. I've seen people choose it over Chivas Regal and other Highland-dominant blends in blind tastings. (Not that I like Chivas, my favorite blended whiskey is JW Black.)

    If $38 (in Maryland) for 1.75 liters qualifies as cheap, my favorite cheap Bourbon is Bulleit. Going up a bit I like Knob Creek and some Plain Jane, nothing fancy Old Fitzgerald I bought at the distillery three or four years ago for around $40. A significant number of bourbons and ryes come from the same mega-distillery in Indianapolis, with various brands putting their flavor profile on during the aging process.

    Huh. I've never had it but thought for sure Clan McGregor was lighter fluid with caramel coloring. You know, wino scotch.

    Bought a bottle of this a few weeks ago. Have yet to crack it open. Any thoughts?

    Never heard of it. But, it's just wrong to bring it home and not try it. I'm like a kid with a new toy, I can't wait to crack it open and play with it - hahaha.

    Went out last night w wife. At dinner had some Johnny Drum bourbon. Had never heard of it before. I liked it and will have to find some


    Never have heard of the bird dog either. Let us know how it is

  • FishTXFishTX Super Moderator Posts: 8,074 Senior Member

    5% at the grocery store? :D Tom Thumbs down here will sell you a bottle of St Bernardus ABT 12. That is a 10%

    Jeebus hates us, regardless of what the mo-mo’s say.

    PA has screwed up liquor/beer laws but it is like a hedonistic post-apocalyptic free for all compared to Utah.

    Yes but... the but being that Utah state store prices - at least for Scotch and Cognac were lower than PA state store prices the last time I was there. You are absolutely right though when it comes to beer.
