The store is about an hour away. Is it worth it?
You can have it shipped to your front door (not entirely legal) for about $120 all in. So is a two hour drive worth $50 to you? I’m sure I’d find a way to rationalize the trip!
I am not sure what you are recommending.
My question relates to the quality of the bourbon.
Is the bourbon worth owning to drink? I see that online the bottle sells for $200. I would not drive to buy the bottle to resell.
Yes, I like Blanton’s and would be a buyer at $69. I wouldn’t pay $200 for it though.

same here. (I only had ~1k points so far this year though, so I couldn't really compete with people who had actually been spending so far)

Seems like Blanton's is the TW participation trophy [scratch.gif] FWIW BevMo had an email blast offering Blanton's about a week or two ago.

I had about 6k in points and got the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon. Never had it but looking forward to it.

I would not drive the 2 hrs RT
If you ask around enough you should be able to find it in the wild for around $70-$80

I bought 2 bottles here in NJ at $75 & $80
Would not rebuy. I would spend the $ elsewhere

For that price I would prefer a Heavens Door rye or Basil Hayden 10 yr

As said upthread, Blantons is the participation trophy in this lottery. If you were local it would be a good pickup for that price
Cheers,
Tony

Two hour drive for Blanton's? Tater moves.

Oh, and I also got Blanton's again. Sigh. Lol.

That is one fantastic bottle of Bourbon and a great choice.

Last fall, I scored on a bottle of 10-yr old Rip, but I struck out this spring. I had like 20K+ points too! The staff at our local store says NV doesn't get allocated very many "special" bottles...

Scott I think those Pappy's and other allocated items are going to the casinos for the high rollers in the case of NV. They pour a sh*t load of booze and don't think they would be shy about flexing their muscle about switching out the house bourbon/vodka/gin/tequila to another distributer if they don't get a "fair" allocation

I'll trade you my two blantons (last fall/this spring) for your 10 year any day
