One of the rare times I stumbled upon it was at a local wine store. They had a few spirits on the side and on the top shelf was Elmer for... $120. Fuck that shit.


that had to have been the sour mash..thats about the average price for that..the regular single barrel bourbon is about $35 here

I've still never seen it for more than $40 around here. Again, I just never see it anymore. This is the single barrel I'm talking about. I don't know anything about the sour mash.

What did you think?

I didn't have a high opinion of the stuff.

I remember when Jameson used to be $15 a bottle in Brooklyn. Then, magically, one day it jumped up to $28. And I haven't had a lot of Jameson since. But I'd absolutely but a case or two at $14.

It's too loaded with vanilla and honey notes for me, and not in a subtle way. Balcones Rumble is a lot better if I'm ever in that sort of mood. I get exactly what the sales rep was saying when he mentioned that Rebecca Creek is marketed as a local alternative to Crown.

Like I said, it sells at our bar so we keep it on. It's a good price and it's not bad tasting, just nothing special. I'm okay recommending it to bar patrons who just want a mixed drink.

Not in SC. Just state approved ABC stores.

Beer and wine, yes though. And in grocery stores.

Wait, for some reason, here in SC, Costco is allowed to sell liquor. It is in a separate entrance from the main store. I always thought that was peculiar.

until ten years ago you couldn't buy alcohol at all on Sundays here. But now you can buy beer and wine whenever. Liquor stores must be closed on Sundays, though.

I've had surprisingly good cheap whiskey at trader joes before too. Blew my mind.

Local liquor store is doing a "25% off any bottle" promo, so I just scored some High West Double Rye for $38.
