Today's find. I really love vacation, and being in a spot that doesn't have flippers and hoarders like DFW. Stuff is actually on the shelf!

Not a fan this was a huge let down! I still have one unopened that I probably won't open.

My summer planned trip to Cuba was scuppered so I did the next best thing... a whisky buying trip/tour of Scotland! Had a great week with a mix of rain and glorious sunshine. Some great pick ups too -

Baruch Hashem to that.  The Orthodox put a whipping on whiskies.  They'll drink that instead of wine at dinner.

To my surprise it was actually pretty good reminded me of Weller special reserve but a tad bit better

Believe it or not, I feel the same way. I'm glad I found it at retail price. Not even close to worth secondary pricing. New Riff is way better, also much better options for the price.

Yes sir I bought it for the age statement and regret it, I tend to try and go after the stuff that no one wants.

Elmer T Lee and surprisingly I didn't pay secondary for it.

Everything you've posted would be a lottery only bottle by me. Good scores!

I get super lucky the owner holds bottles for me and gives em to me at msrp. I try and stay away from the van Winkles and etc cause I know if I wait long enough I'll get em at msrp cause the new stock comes on. I've had this ETL and it was kind of a let down.

I need to try some of that OF Rye. I’ve got a bottle of 86 and 1920 both which I’m thoroughly enjoying.

i remember the early opus one releases (sadly, that old). they were pretty interesting and exciting. i'm not that up with napa vintages so i can't help you but if you are serious, i have a friend who is a maker there - his father was involved with some of the wines which won the famous tasting in paris. i could chase him and ask if you want.

Well, I just got the 2016, now I have to hide it from the wife! I don't want to go older, they go up $25.00-$50.00 every year.... I cant locate the 2017. So that would be great!

That would be great, thanks!

Just got a second 2016.

My collection is looking pretty nice after that haul! Still need some more allocated stuff but I'll get it in time without paying secondary
