PSA...

Jacob Bromwell has a flask sale. 35% off plus BOGO. The $300 Vermonter hand crafted copper flask, which I own and cherish, is now $195 and BOGO. So, basically a $300 flask for $100 which now puts it into the price range of many other nice flasks. I also have the very cool hand-crafted copper funnel.

This is an heirloom that you will pass down to your children.
Ok, Al, you hooked me! I got 2 Vermonters, but skipped on the $50 funnel and $150 engraving. I ordered some funnels from Amazon for $7.

Is yours engraved? How do you clean the flask?
And of course, now that I bought 2 of them for roughly $100/ea, the Vermonter and KY flasks are now on sale for $75, no multiples required [soap.gif] [swearing.gif]

WOW, can't believe they went down to $75!

Mine isn't engraved. I clean it like my steel flasks, mild liquid dish soap and water.

Thank you for the PSA. I was able to grab one when it went down to $75. Looks like the $75 dollar sale ends today. Much appreciated!

Ahhhhh crap. I got excited because my local connection saved me a bottle. I’m guessing I paid a lot more... $150 for the bottle, $183 out the door.

Needed a thank you gift for somebody that’s making a bucket list opportunity happen. I gave up on WLW, Handy, Sazerac 18 or George T... and grabbed this instead.

Wine Enthusiast came out with a list recently of what they consider to be the best Bourbons and American whiskeys for under $40 recently. Go ahead and flame away at WE....that seems popular here for some reason...but a few are readily available even at my local grocery store. Larceny Bourbon is about $28 around here and garnered 92 points. Has anyone had it, and how is the quality?

I am biased and bitter as we just lost Heaven Hill, but if you like wheaters like Maker's Mark, it's a wheater in that vein, with less overall sweet impression you get from Makers and more wheat flavors and higher proof. Really solid spirit, straight or mixed, they have a Barrel Proof now too if you like that higher strength.

If you get access to all the various recipes, that would be pretty cool!

We talked a bit about private barrels, pretty limited today, but they come out at higher proof and age range is 8-13 years old according to Brent. He said it's the purest expression of Four Roses.

Excited to get going and build something new.

Do. I just tried it last night with just a little ice. It was quite good for the price and I'll definitely continue to buy it.

It's unfortunate we don't get more Weller Special Reserve and 107 in WA, about the best value wheater there is, pancakes the rest of them.

Weller Special Reserve (WSR) has a green label and green METAL screw on lid now.

Old Weller Antique 107 has a red label, and red metal cap with a cork enclosure (if the newer version, otherwise red metal screw on/off cap).

Weller Special Reserve (WSR) has a green label and green METAL screw on lid now.

Old Weller Antique 107 has a red label, and red metal cap with a cork enclosure (if the newer version, otherwise red metal screw on/off cap).
Here’s what they look like.

Another vote here for the Weller 107. Pricey, but delicious.

Speaking of such Bourbons, you folks should check out the Old Pogue Master's Select. My CT review:

Very good: Very, very peppery, with nutmeg, black pepper, white pepper, orange peel, and hints of surghum syrup. Fragrant, long finish. My first experience with this Bourbon. I don't usually cotton to the ryed Bourbons, but I liked this one quite a bit.

Are you referring to the Weller, or to the Pogue? Locally, the Pogue is $90 retail at Total Wine, and the Weller 107 is unavailable at any price (by the bottle, but available by the drink at restaurants).

Gotta be the OWA107. I believe MSRP on that is $49.99, though it never hits retailer shelves at that pricepoint in the far majority of states.

Garrison Brothers Balmorhea

Just got this today and first time tasting. The color is incredibly dark. The nose is brooding caramel, bananas, some slight smoke, vanilla bean. Palate is just amazing chestnut, caramel, mouth coating vanilla. A bit hot on the nose and somewhat on the tongue but with a tiny bit of ice it is just captivating and invites you back for more. Hard to stop drinking this one. Nice job GB.

Four Roses 2019 Limited Edition - looks like it’s spectacular, MSRP at $140. Found it at a shop, but at $399. Way overpriced, or is that reasonable for secondary market?
