    That bottle of Hibiki in the Buffalo NY area is $93.

    Drove around our circle and hit up a few stores that I don't have time for during the week.

    Pic of the haul from the weekend.

    I can get some of that stuff locally, but getting a bottle of Buffalo Trace and EH Taylor at Buffalo Trace was just too neat to pass up. The Mellow Corn I can sometimes find, but I've never bought, so figured I'd give it a whirl since I was at Heaven Hill. Been looking to try that Evan Williams BiB, too. Both of those were very cheap grabs. The little bottles are Elijah Craig Barrel Selects - affectionately called "Grenades". 125 proof Elijah Craig. It is a gift shop only bottle limited to one per customer, so I obviously had to schmooze a few folks to buy me some extras for the boys back home. ;)

    The Legent was a bottle I haven't seen locally, *yet*, and was cheaper than at the liquor stores, so I snagged one. The most spiritual purchase was getting the latest Booker's batch from the grounds where Booker's is produced. 2019-01 before it gets to Texas. So damn cool for a Booker's fan.

    I got a little more swag than what is pictured, but the Buffalo Trace shirt was such a perfect fit for a BBQ guy like me that drinks whiskey. I thought the Mellow Corn shirt was pretty sweet, too.

    I have some bitters and old fashion mixes from a couple places. I'll get a pic of those after I get home and unpack.

    I have a couple of those, both in standard size and the miniature 'perfect drams' that they give away at sampling events, but they're annoying. :laugh:

    I like sampling with a Glencairn, but they're less satisfying to hold/drink from, somehow. Maybe it's the weight? I like a 'weighty' glass; just a personal quirk. And they're a little snooty, like you said. Plus there's all the extra neck bending and puckering up just to get a sip...so much work.

    Regardless, the GF dragged me to Goodwill on our way to dinner out on Saturday evening, so I wandered around their 'glassware' section and found an 8oz rocks glass for $1 (with a nice heavy base) :thumbsup:

    At some point I'd like to pick up a nice vintage set of bar glasses, (a full set; rocks, collins, highball, etc). I've noticed that the antique glasses tend to be a bit smaller than the modern ones, for some reason.

    Went on a small road trip since I knew a place to snag some more HM10, so I bought two more. Found some others along the way, of course.:D

    So far, enjoying the hell out of the OF Rye. We haven't gotten anywhere locally that I've seen, so I grabbed a bottle.

    Love the Compass Box sampler! Have you had those before? I'm a huge fan of John Glaser's stuff - that Spice Tree is among my favorite scotches.

    Yeah, first time I ever saw one, so I had to grab it. I've got full bottles of Spice Tree and Oak Cross that I picked up around Christmas when I was in Tennessee. Haven't had the Spaniard or Peat Monster before, so I figured this is the best way to.

    I'm still not 100% on Scotch. I'm way more into Bourbons and Ryes, but I'm trying to expand my palate. I'm enjoying the Redbreast 12 a lot, so maybe Irish will wind up being my go-to.

    Anyone who starts on Irish, I always recommend checking out knoppogue castle. That was the whiskey that got me into good whiskey. Peaches, pears, bananas! Super fruity. So much so that it's really easy to pick out the flavors. If you see it around, give it a shot!

    Used barrels go for less than $100 typically. How hard would it be to have a branding iron lasered from some 1/4" steel & do something like this?

    Step 1: buy used barrels.
    Step 2: shoot laser beams at metal. :laser:
    Step 3: profit.

    Dude! Mellow Corn is the bee's knees!!! Haha I love that little whiskey! Very jealous of the shirt... Sounds like quite the haul. Congrats! And for a Booker's fan, sounds like it was especially awesome.

    It varies, but as a general rule:
    • Juice half a lemon/lime (FRESH!)
    • Shot of bourbon/rum/gin (gin toddy's are actually pretty awesome)
    • Honey to taste
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 2-3 cloves
    • small chunk of ginger root, smushed (the technical term would be 'muddled', probably)
    • Hot water
    Add all ingredients EXCEPT the liquor to a mug, fill with hot water. Let it steep 5-6 minutes, add the booze, stir and enjoy.
    Then, if you're sick, go to bed.
