We have a loaded show today with some hot topics hitting the
boards. This episode touches on recent releases of NEAT, the less than
stellar James Thompson &
Brother incredibly overaged bourbon made its way out, we
discuss the practices by Pennsylvania liquor control board setting
lottery prices at secondary prices, thoughts on the new Old
Fitzgerald release, we wonder if NDPs sourced from MGP being $100
is the new norm, and Kenny gets snobby a bit. Danner has been making boots for
85 years for the unforgiving Pacific Northwest. Their Stronghold series
is inspired by hikers but built for the toughest working
conditions. Find your local store at danner.com. Show Notes:
- What are your initial thoughts on the new release of NEAT at
- We've got our own bourbon film come out. You will love the
cheesy graphics. It's fun to watch.
- There was release for James Thompson &
Brother Final Reserve 45 year old bourbon here in Louisville.
250 total bottles. only 150 to the public. It was $1800 + tax.
People camped out in the rain. First few sold and then the reviews
came out. It’s terrible. What’s the likely future outcome for
pricing of this bourbon? and the subsequent 43 and 41 year old
- The Pennsylvania Liquor
Control Board admitting that it's pricing Booker's Rye with
secondary in their online lottery. This is state run. Is this
legal? What's to make of this?
- Heaven Hill is releasing their
Old Fitzgerald BIB Decanter at $100. Will you be buying it?
What will happen to the bottom shelf Old Fitz?
- Are $100 NDP MGPs the new norm? We used to scuff at this like 2
years ago saying you wouldn't pay these prices for something you
knew was made in Indiana. Now with things like Mic.Drop. people are doing
it. And keep in perspective that GTS is only $89.
- Is it a problem with hype?
- What's the next SAOS
- MGP be the new stitzel weller...all these up and coming
distilleries are going to switch to their own distillate and their
mgp bottlings will become more valuable
- Is it worth buying bottles over $50 now?
- What's up with all the Wathen's Barrel Proof recently? When
did this become a sought after item? Because it's barrel proof? a
single barrel pick? Wathen's has been around forever but just now
became something that continually shows up on my feed.
- How about an additional topic: Blake hates
Single barrel bourbons...thoughts?
