Bourbon. - Page 164
@NewYorkIslander I've been reading through some back pages of this thread and see you do a lot of hunting for dusties. I'm just curious - what are you looking for? Just anything old? And what do you do with it? A lot of the dusties you've shown look like lower-shelf stuff, so I'm just curious if you're collecting, drinking, or flipping them.
A little of each Orgetorix. I have some estate sale stuff that are like trophies (my mom and dad's birth year) that I probably won't sell or drink. Have some stuff I found from early 2000s that I cracked (Weller Centennial, older michters, GTS) and some bottom shelf 80's stuff I cracked (Old Grand Dad, Dant) and sold a slew of the Old Grand Dad (or more accurately traded it for Four Roses picks). The hunting game is done and dusted though...too many out there doing the same, and it takes way too much of my time. I miss my kids, don't want to spend days away from my family for a few bottles that might net me a couple hundred bucks. I have more than enough to drink, and the novelty of finding something on a shelf for $50 that secondary is $500 has worn off for me. I like to think the stuff I'm buying now will be what people will be hunting in the future. Good, solid bourbon. Better than the shelf turds of yesterday that never live up to their secondary market pricing.

Yep. The Four Roses Single Barrel program has been really nice. I've really been drinking a lot of regular stuff as I got burnt out on all the chasing and overpaying.
Just like last night, when watching the Cavs, I had a few beers and a few pours of Four Roses Yellow label and was just fine.
