Highland Park. At least it feels like Christmas indoors. Outside it was in the mid eighties today.

I got completely lucky last night, went into my regular liquor store and ran into the owner, told him that for the past few years he had got me my special bottle of michters 10 year old bourbon but this year his staff had told me that they were no longer doing that and to put my name on a ticket for a drawing. He said, wait here, he came back and handed me the bottle. I then said I would instead take a pappy as I had never been able to get one, he said I will be right back and came back and handed me my first bottle I've ever bought of pappy. I got to keep both!! The pappy was awesome.

I passed on a bottle of 15 yr. old Pappy last year that I should have bought. They were asking $110.00 for the bottle, it was the only one I've ever seen. You could say that I wasn't the brightest crayon in the box at the time. Knob Creek small batch is the flavor of the day at my house.

Well the flavor of the day....
The cabinet told me.... Buffalo Trace.
But the Christmas season is still early...
Woodford Reserve I see,
Russell's Single Barrel is near,
Woodford Four Wood,
Angles Envy,
Willet,
Eagle Rare,
Whistle Pig Rye,
My son manages 2 bar restaurants, my bourbon selection stays pretty
Bleak.. he runs a 100 Bourbons on one shelf... that's a headache in the making.
He did have some Pappy 23, but I couldn't afford the shot price.

You're crazy, secondary market is $1,000 per bottle.

Holly crap, you guys just ruined my day. I had no idea it was selling for that much money, I would have snatched it up in a heartbeat.

You guys make me feel like the red-headed stepchild; Lagavulin 16 year old.

Or Balvenie 14 year old.
