    Got one. Received a text from the local store owner on Saturday asking if I wanted either or both of these. Picked them up today.

    The Balcones is a local group's pick of their cask strength Texas single malt. It is finished in ex Madeira casks. The color is amazing.

    That Booker's, though.... Looking forward to it.

    Elmer is a 100th anniversary bottle this year so I think retail is up at $100


    I'm in a control state so our pricing is usually pretty good, but there are some things that we dont even get

    I'd say your review is spot on. I found mine at TW in Jacksonville, FL when visiting a buddy for like $45.

    I'm glad that's what I paid as I like it, but it drinks more like the ice cask Canadian whiskey my wife grabbed me from north of the border. Too sweet to my liking to be a normal go to.

    That being said, it looks bad ass on the bar and is good convo starter

    That whole Metallica S&M with San Francisco Symphony blew my mind. When I first started to listen to it I was like what kind of unholy crap is this. Then by half way through I was like wow this is pretty awesome.

    is a strange departure from the norm but I think that's why I like it so much. It seems people either love it or hate it, but I'm obviously a fan. :thumbsup:

    which batch #? or are you talking the Confiscated? either way unless I'm missing something, $100 is a good deal if it's the confiscated or Rye Batch #1/2/3

    @bvbull200 ?

    I'm still leaning towards good deal. Unfortunately a lot of secondary pages have been nuked so tracking down prices is a bit tough. I'd wait for more confirmation though

    Almost sounds too good to be true. Kentucky Owl Rye Batch #03 retails for $199. Older batches fetch more than that on secondary. Their Confiscated sells for closer to $100, but that's a bourbon.

    I'd just confirm the bottle. If it is the rye, yes, definitely buy at $100.

    That's either batch #01 or #02 and certainly a great deal at $100.

    I've just about finished up the book about Booker Noe - The Big Man of Jim Beam: Booker Noe and the Number One Bourbon in the World. It's pretty neat seeing all of the batch name inspirations in a greater context. Toogie, Annis, his front porch, blue-gill, the rocking chair, Tommy, country ham, etc. all come up and you start to place the source of all of those batch names on Booker Noe's timeline.

    The quality of the writing leaves a little to be desired, but it's worth the read for the subject matter (Booker was quite a character) and Beam history alone.

    Holy crap, that'd be fun!

    I want to do the Behind the Beam tour. I'm going to look at the 2020 dates when they post and see if I can make it happen.

    https://www.jimbeam.com/visit-us/american-stillhouse

    BEHIND THE BEAM

    After aging twice as long as the law requires, our bourbon develops rich and complex flavors. And the stories behind it are just as rich.

    During this insider's experience at the Jim Beam American Stillhouse in Clermont, KY, you'll enjoy a private distillery tour, barrel thieving in one of our rackhouses and a guided tasting with Fred and Freddie Noe—the great-grandson and great-great-grandson of Jim Beam himself.

    The highlight of this experience - you’ll sit down with Fred and Freddie for a premium bourbon tasting in the historic Beam Home—an experience filled with a some of our greatest Beam family stories.

    And top it all off with a bourbon-inspired barbeque lunch and a commemorative bottle to remember your time behind the Beam.
