Very much so. They are priced relatively well when compared to other top shelf bourbons, and I've enjoyed these two whiskies a good deal better than the bulk, if not all, of the new entrants into this fairly crowded market now..

You're a better man than I am!

FTR, I think Pappy is pretty good, but like @gnatty8 says, there are tons of great bourbons out there. Taste is so subjective.

Forgive me if this was already covered but why did the price of Black Maple Hill skyrocket?

I think a non-trivial portion of it is that the label and bottle look a lot like Pappy.



And really, every premium offering has dramatically increased in price.

I remember paying ~$50. Now it's $400.

Investing in bourbon 3-4 years ago would've given me a great return. Instead I did the stupid thing and bought a house or invested in the stock market.

The best! With just a drop of water -- symphony!

Tomorrow's BTAC day, so in the name of democracy, I'll be on my way to my store around 3 AM tonight to be there until the truck comes in in the morning. I've been burned on both ways (waiting at stores that keep everything for their good clients and being a good client at a store that gives things out either first-come or by lottery), so I guess this is the best chance I have of getting anything.

How was your haul?

Well, it's in progress. My main store, the one I was going to camp out at, ended up pre-selling everything over the phone, even though they told me for the past 3 months that they're going to do first-come, first-serve for it. So that was cool (aka I ended up with nada). I staked out store #2 today and got myself a Sazerac 18 for my trouble. And store #3 is releasing theirs at 8 AM tomorrow, so I'll have another early morning tomorrow to get there before they open at 7 to hopefully get my hands on a Weller. My rationalization is that otherwise I wouldn't be up before 9 anyways, so there's no harm in trying.

I'd be super pissed if my "main store" did that. I'm assuming you have significant spend too. F them and make sure they know it.

Unless they were asking STUPID prices....
